Happy New Year!
January 2, 2011
I fully intended to post yesterday, a nice start of the year post with a summary of last year and hopes for the new year. Instead, I spent all day on the sofa watching the Twilight Zone marathon (“It’s a cookbook!”) because I’ve started the new year with a cold.
So, I was torn between wanting to have a high-energy new year’s day, cleaning the house and working and setting a good, high-functioning tone for the year. Or spending it as a lazy holiday. The cold decided for me. I probably shouldn’t have gone to the New Year’s Eve party the night before, because I think it did me in for yesterday.
That’s the trouble with making a big event out the new year and its resolutions. There’s a sense of do or die about the whole thing. And if it doesn’t work out — what, you have to wait a whole year to start over? Of course not. Every day’s a new chance.
Oh, and I finally watched 2010 last week, so I could say I watched it in 2010. Love that movie, with all its big space ships and meaty science fiction. But you know what bothered me on this viewing, actually watching it in 2010? All those big CRT monitors. We could imagine sending people to Jupiter — but couldn’t imagine touch screens?
