Happy New Year!

This would have been posted at 12:01 am local time January 1st 2oo9, except I couldn’t get to internet. So just–time capsule everyone. TARDIS ho!

Last year at this time I was on the banks of the Thames watching fireworks. (Well, give or take a couple of time zones.) Currently-who knows where I am? Boston, probably, but other than that I don’t really have plans. Maybe we’ll try out First Night, maybe we’ll hit up a party or two. Whatever we do, we have champagne.

So-Happy New Year, everyone! May your 2009 be filled with happiness and prosperity and peace and good books and all other things wonderful and joyous.

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind ?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And days o’ lang syne ?

For auld lang syne, my friends,
For auld lang syne,
We’ll tak a cup of kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.
