Nice socks, fat man! Oh, and Happy New Year.

What better way to ring in a new decade than with a photo of a freakishly skinny dude boxing a fat dude with Vertically Striped Socks? Hope everyone had a safe and fun New Years Eve...I am so cool that I stayed up late with my wife watching "Almost Famous." By the time the movie was over, so was 2009. I wonder what me in my early 20's would have thought of me at 33 barely even acknowledging the new year coming and really only staying up past midnight as a coincidence that arose through watching a good movie? I think I'm officially old.

Actually, I was at a furniture store the other day with my wife and daughter, and Ellie (My daughter) wanted to play in all the fun bunk beds they had for sale. I realized how you can officially tell when you are an adult and not a kid. At the moment where you would rather fight for the bottom bunk than the top bunk...your childhood is over. Bunkbeds are cool these days, too. Part of me wants to get super rich just so that I can have a house with a killer custom bunkbed in the shape of a dragon or a castle or something. (Okay, so perhaps my childhood isn't ENTIRELY over, since this is something I would consider...) Yes, I need to get out more, but as I discussed earlier, I tend to do things like watch movies on New Years all hope may be lost.

I have no idea what the point of this post was other than to ramble a bit, and to say Happy New Year to you all! May 2010 be the year that it all happens. (That wish was purposely vague so you can adapt it to whatever happens in 2010 and still be successful this year. It's all about managing expectations, people.) Okay, I'm going to stop typing now.

Edit: My wife says I'm lying by claiming to be cool in my early 20's. I think if you've been reading me for any amount of time that you've already figured out that I'm not cool, but just in case there was any doubt. In my early 20's...I was not cool...and my early 20's self would probably look at me and say, "Yup, that's about right." Sorry if you have felt misled.
