Okay, so you weren’t all bad. You ensured we said goodbye to Bush, Cheney, et al. You let the Yankees win the World Series. Iowa legalized gay marriage. And Harpyness came into being. But on a personal level, you were a real kick-in-the-ovaries kind of year for me, and for a number of other people. Please vacate the premises before I unleash my pups and they attack you with nasty, big, pointy teeth.
Please don’t fuck the world over too badly, okay? Here’s the really abbreviated list of what I’d like to see happen this year: Scott Roeder rotting in prison for murdering Dr. George Tiller. Roman Polanski also gets his own cell. More people buying the works of Michael Palin than those of Sarah Palin. A fashion industry that doesn’t fall all over itself in self-congratulation when they occasionally feature an “unconventional” model like Lara Stone. A metaphoric slap to the head to people who think they’re clever for joining Facebook groups like “Why should I have to press ‘one’ for English?” On a more personal level, I’d like to get through the year relatively unscathed, one year closer to my degree, and with whatever wit and optimism I have left still intact. I plan to read at least 25 non-school books. Oh, and I wouldn’t mind another World Series win.
Share your own hopes/dreams/resolutions for 2010, on both a global and personal level in the comments. And Happy New Year!
