*sigh*: It’s almost over. Last year I did a rundown on what I was grateful for and wouldn’t miss as the year ended. This year, I’m just too tired to pinpoint anything. Overall, I’m just glad it’s almost gone. Here’s hoping the new calendar year and the Chinese Year of the Pig are better. Festivities are just getting going in San Francisco – the big outdoor party and fireworks show are just down the hill from me. We may pop out to the street for the fireworks, but it’s really chilly tonight and a long time spent outside just isn’t getting a lot of positive votes. Another Kir Royale is sounding quite excellent, though. Hope you all have a healthy and happy 2008!
