tabitha, i strongly think that the problem with 2007 was the presidency. we have had a terrible cultural spill-over from this disappointing presidency. the standards for everything "american" have been so reduced that everything is just much more mediocre. we're all having a pretty terrible time and it seem s like evil is winning. hopefully hope will return in 2009.
happy new year.
Mine may be kind of mundane, but I'm posting it to strengthen my resolve. Maybe you can call me out on it at some point during '08:
1) I have to finish up my undergrad's degree. I've only got three more classes, and two of them are the result of failing them this past semester;
2) I want to figure out what it was about 2007 that was so terrible for so many of my friends and the world at large. Star alignment? Unforseen psychological effect of global warning? I'm gonna find out;
3) That hedonistic one you just mentioned was a good one: I'm going to get as (safely?) high as I've ever been in my entire life. Maybe the day after I get my degree.
Happy 2008 to you and your staff,
Why would you say, "the movie with Jack Nicholson about 2 guys..." Who's the other guy? It just happens to be Morgan Freeman! You can't remember his name? It sounds terrible to say, "the Jack Nicholson movie about 2 guys..." Terrible.
