Even though each year seems so very similar and after a while they seem to flow into each other... but any reason to do Jägermeister shots and jam out to Smells like Teen Spirit in a public setting before waking up in some strange hotel in the bathtub with ice packed around you... just kidding! That never happened. To me. I can't say that about anyone else.
But I do love Jägermeister. Jägerbombs or straight. Which is strange, because I hate black licorice.
But yeah, happy new years people!
Feliz año nuevo!
Glückliches neues Jahr! (I took three years of German in high school and I STILL had to look up the exact phrasing of this one... I'm so ashamed...)
Bonan Novjaron! (ESPERANTO KIDDOS! LOOK IT UP!
Really, I hope it's a good one and that things improve for everyone, even if things are already going swimmingly.
That's a phrase I never fully understood, swimmingly. It means going well, that I know, but why that particular phrase?

LAST QUOTES OF 2012!The Man from the Fridge (singing):
The universe itself keeps expanding and expanding,
In all of the directions it can whizz,
As fast as it can go,
At the speed of light, you know,
Twelve million miles a minute,
And that's the fastest speed there is,
So, remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazing unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space
'Cause there's bugger all down here on Earth.
-from Monty Python's The Meaning of Life Part V: Live Organ Transplants
Bender: Dying sucks butt. How do you living beings cope with mortality?
Leela: Violent outbursts.
Amy: General slutiness.
Fry: Thanks to denial, I'm immortal.

This is the story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.
