Goodbye and Good Riddance 2009: So long and thanks for all the fish.  

Every year we watch the Charlie Brown special, do the Snoopy dance, wish everybody a Merry Christmukkah, and thank our Secret Santas in the good riddance thread. Which is this one, in case you were wondering. Oh, and 2009? Don't think we've forgotten about you

Yay for a new year end thread!

Ann, that's a ferret.

Yay for a new year end thread!

And yay for the end of this year!

All sorrows can be borne if you put them into a story. Tell me a story.

And yay for the end of this year!

Indeed. But enough crap has happened this year that I don't want to tempt fate by declaring it over too soon.

Yeah, I'm about ready for this year to end. There's just enough time for something really good to happen, still, so I'm not singing a swan song, yet.

In the meantime, bring on the Fernet!!

I never can resist snagging my user #. Also, about the only thread I am able to keep up in.

More on 2009 later, but it is closing out on a good note for me so ok.

Why did Darth Vader cross the road? To get to the Dark Side!

Love the title.

Every now and then, I think I might actually be a little odd.

2009 has been a really good year for me.

It's almost the exact opposite of 1994.

Instead of losing a house, job, cats, car, and all my money, I've gotten a house, cats, car, and, okay, a little money, and a very welcome change in my job. Life is darn good, and I feel very fortunate.

If I want to become a cloud of bats, does each bat need a separate vaccination?

2009 isn't over yet. So far it's been a very mixed bag, but there's still a chance it could bounce back.

Now if your car ain't got it, go out and get it. We like the boom and don't you forget it. So turn down the treble and front your bass.

Yeah, I am not ready to talk about 2009 yet. Most I can say is that looking back 2008 offered some foreshadowing and 2009 saw the actual meaty stuff come to pass. I'd like to say I'm out the other side on some of this stuff, but it seems premature. There's still most of a month to go and even though my brain and energies are heavily distracted by 2010, I know that is plenty of time for 2009 to snap me to attention.
