Happy New Year, 2010

Well, a new year is upon us.  So far it feels a lot like last year.  But it’ll be better.  Well, I don’t know that all things will be better, but here at Buffet o’ Blog we have plans to make your experience here better than ever.  And that should be worth something.  🙂

For a few minutes around midnight, when it officially became 2010, I tuned in to the Dick Clark new years countdown special on ABC.  Right after it happened, they went live to a female broadcaster in the middle of Times Square, who gave her first impression of the new year and all the celebrations going on.  Her response?  “I’m crying.  I feel like a little girl.”  Really?  I wonder how much she’s getting paid for that kind of insight…  Not to be critical, but I think I could’ve come up with something better than that… (and I write for free!)

And then there were people singing “Auld Lang Syne”.  I don’t know all the lyrics, but there’s something about “should old acquaintances be forgot and never brought to mind”.  I don’t get it.  Why is there a song about forgetting people?  I mean, if they did something bad to you, then it would be good to forget, but why forget old acquaintances just because it’s a new year?  Maybe I should write a new song for new years, talking about starting the year fresh, with new years resolutions, and planning to keep those resolutions longer than a few weeks this time.  🙂
