No, I don't have anything to say relative to the title; just trying to stack our cards in our favor.
I've purposely taken an impersonal tone in this blog. If I hadn't, I'd say a lot about 2005, which brought G-Fav and J-Fav some wonderful "ups" that were punctuated by several difficult "downs." We are thankful for our friends and family that shared all of it with us.
Here's to starting 2006 with something humorous -- a short piece on McSweeny's that was the first thing to make me laugh online this year: "Truly Groundbreaking Advertising Ideas." (Warning: my sense of humor tends to be... obtuse.) And the second thing to make me laugh: "Stories Ending With 'Long Story Short' That Could Actually Use Some Elaboration."
[Another thoughtful pause... gratuitous hyperlinks ahead...]
Santa was good to me & supported my new and unanticipated interest in video games. I have been enjoying a new Nintendo DS, playing Castlevania at the Diesel, and reading the 1Up.com blog of the day and "TV" show at home. I think what interests me is how pixel count isn't necessarily related to how much fun a game system is. I've been offsetting this by trying to read one chapter of Feynman's Lectures each night, which I recommend to anyone interested in that stuff.
Here's to 2006. Here's to hoping you each have why-didn't-I-think-of-that ideas like the kid who made close to $1 million by setting up a webpage and selling the space at $1/pixel. Check it out: www.milliondollarhomepage.com.
