So in the dying moments of the old year, we get to assess what went right / what went wrong in 08. Like a crap newshow with clips I could revisit some of these moments as highlights - which hopefully have a spectacular crash sequence in them - only because it is spectacular footage as opposed to being of any actual news merit.
But I won't.
There have been some kewl moments I will grant you. Seeing theNoo awaken as he grows and learns is pretty neato. TheWife's efforts with that get a massive box tick from me, esp since she's borne the bulk of the burden.
However kewl has been outweighed by krap. There have been some mind numbing heart numbing awful moments as well. I won't got into them. But if I was to do that footage thing there would be a fair amount of post surgical vomiting.
So on balance ... 08 erred on being in the less than great column. I think the nays have it in speaker of the house parlance.
Onward and upward though. 09, baring an ELO (the event or the band reforming), would logically have to piss all over 08. Time heals all and all that.
Well ... here's hoping.
Have a happy new year punters. Auld Lang whatever and so forth.
UPDATE: I realised that ELO is not an acronym for Extinction Level Event, ELE is. So the above observation makes little sense. But then Duck was drunk so he likely missed that.
