Looks like we made it into another century. I don’t even know what that means. I heard a sports commentator the other night during the football game talking about Testeverde, and how if he played for one more year, he would have played in four centuries. Centuries? Really? Last I checked, that still meant one hundred years. Right? I guess he meant decades. But if Vinnie’s thrown a ball in the 70s, 80s, 90s and these here the oughts, he’s already made that mark. Either way, it cracked me up quite a bit.
We celebrated last night by going over to a buddy’s house and drinking, listening to music and throwing the Frisbee. In the garage. Seriously. While we stood out in the garage with beers and cigarettes in our hands, we started tossing around the Frisbee. It was actually quite entertaining. We made up rules as we went along. “Now you can only use your left hand.” “Now you can only throw over-hand.” Stuff like that. Then we got bored with the Frisbee and nailed up a piece of plywood and began throwing knives at it to see if we could get them to stick. Our parties.
We all clinked glasses and kissed each other at midnight, lit some sparklers and danced around in our drunkenness with champagne, beer and steak fajitas. I had only taken nine of my beers over there, so once they were gone I realized over half the bottle of Brut I had brought was left, so I started pulling straight from the bottle. That makes for a good drink.
All in all, I expect this year to go a lot better than last year. A lot of bad shit happened in the last two months of 2007, and got even worse in the last two weeks. I will spare you the details, but it’s not been a year I want to remember. There’s only one final thing hanging over my head now, that will happen this year. Once that’s done I can finally look up again. This should be a better year though.
There will be some changes coming here on SpaceBrew over the next couple of weeks. We’ll be changing up the staff a little bit and devoting more time and writers to new content on a daily basis. It should be a better year for you too, dear readers. If you look in the archives for the last three months, you’ll see that we’ve published a lot of material for you. There’s even scrollbars on a couple of the months there. How rich is that?
So let’s all meet back here tomorrow morning, same place, and every morning thereafter. We’ll bring the writing, you bring the reading, and we’ll make it a good year.
