End of 2004 post

I sort of wish I was posting about going to some cool New Years Party, but that’s not the case. Instead, I got sick with food poisoning or something earlier in the week. I’m better now, but it put a major dent in my plans. I was going to go to San Diego for the Holiday Bowl and hang out with Nick, Patrick, Vicky, and possibly Eric, but that couldn’t happen. Of course, after seeing the result, a 45-31 loss, that might have made me vomit more than the illness.

Now, I wait for the ball to drop on the new year, but it’s also good to reflect. I like those “looking back” pieces the press always makes so many off. Somebody managed to put together most of them here. My personal favorite is An annual compendium of ideas from A to Z from the New York Times Magazine. It’s more interesting than the typical one for sure.

Well, I thought I had more to say, but I guess I don’t. Here’s to the New Year.
