matrixrefugee: the word 'refugee' in electric green with a background of green matrix code (New Years)
Here's hoping the fact that the bottle of alcohol-removed champagne *not* blasting the wall like it did last year is a sign that 2010 is going to be a good year.

And so we have a new year and a new decade ahead of us, like a fresh new blank book for us to write the next chapter in our life stories...

And the first song to pop into my head in 2010: "Gotta Knock a Little Harder" from the Cowboy Bebop movie (of course it would be some anime song :: Laughs:: ). The lyrics seem fitting, considering the doors I've sometimes closed to keep out some painful feelings or situations.

Off to go hunt up my copy of the late, great Arthur C. Clarke's "2010"...

EDITED: to fix incomplete idea. I hate it when the bubbles go to my head. :: laughs::

And a rather spotty one at that: it was a bit stop and go. I suspect people think the store isn't open on New Year's Day, when really it's only banks, the post office and "packies", ie. liquour stores, that aren't open New Year's. Thus it was rather quiet: I'm doing well so far with smuggling in pads of paper to jot on as we're waiting for someone to come through the check out (have yet to twig the boss as to what I'm doing during the lulls between orders, but I'm generally discreet with the pad and the pen, and I keep an ear open for the next customer); I got a running start on another "A.I." fic and I poked a little at another Yami no Matsuei fic, both for the 12 Days of Fanfic challenge, but I'm probably going to fall behind in posting stuff, as I have a busy weekend. We're still undecided about going to the Wedding of the Decade tomorrow, since we're smack in the path of the blizzard. And then on Sunday night, I'm on for Inventory at work. Not sure when I'm going to get in the time to type fanfics (unless we do wind up taking a raincheck, or in this case a snowcheck tomorrow). I'm considering axing a few of the non-request fics for the fic challenge, which makes me a bit of a sad panda. Can't do everything, and I should have started writing these things a lot sooner than I did if I was going to get a good head start on this. Better luck next year, but it looks like I'll get ten out of twelve posted anyway this year; not bad for the first time (better than the odds when I did my first NaNoWriMo, when I had to bail halfway through because of illness, work and my mother getting sick the day before Thanksgiving).
