Dear 2009

Dear 2009,

I'm not even sure why I'm writing you, as if you're some sort of person or entity.  I suppose in some ways, you could be alive, since I can't figure out for the life of me how a single month of yours could contain happiness, awe, worry, depression, anxiety, curiosity, fear, pride, suffering, love, and some other emotions I forgot.  Sigmund Freud would have had a field day.

I'm not exactly feeling too good right now, so I may as well blame you.  Perhaps I'm being too unfair, but then, why not?  You're just a year.  If I can't take it out on people, I may as well take it out on you.  It's not like you'll feel depressed (read: it's not like you'll have a bunch of neurotransmitters firing into some receptors that tell your brain to make the host feel like shit.)  That's what separates us, a soul (read:  a brain that is controlled by a bunch of chemicals.)

Is this pessimism I read in my words?  Hmm, must have been a rogue 5-hydroxytryptamine.  If you're wondering about my Biology prowess, it's just Wikipedia.  It turns any freak into a doctor, don't you know?

Look at me rambling!  It seems like I'll have to keep my chemicals in check.  Bad Serotonin! 

I really just wanted to tell you one thing.  Here's a hint, it start with a big fat F!

2009:  What is it?

Me:  GA-!  wtf!?

2009:  Sorry if I scared you.  But, what is it?

Me:  Uh, what is what?

2009:  I can see you're writing me a letter.  You don't seem very happy.

Me:  ... I'm not.  You know, privacy is a good thing to respect?

2009:  You're writing ME a letter that I can't read?

Me:  Am I supposed to make sense when I'm depressed? 

2009:  Listen, you really think these things don't happen for a reason?  You never know what's at the other end.

Me:  I guess.  I just wish this reason shows up already.  Ah well, good things come to those who wait, yeah?

2009:  Better things come to those who take action.

Me:  mehh.. are you going to talk to me about spinning some gear crap to make things happen?

2009:  Did it once already.  I think you know what you're supposed to do.

Me:  I don't, I really don't.  Help me out here.

2009:  You'll find out.  Bye.

Me:  Wait! ..wait..sigh

.....

I really just wanted to tell you one thing:

F... ...

Forty-two.

Enter 2009

[Inside a dark cavern, echoes of eerie voices]

2008:  Hey hey, look, I have a joke

Me:  2008, I'm really sick of you and your jokes.

2008:  Listen, listen!  What's the difference between 2007 and 2008?

2007:  Huh?

Me:  I don't know, what's the difference between 2007 and 2008?

2008:  A YEAR!  AHAHAHA lololoilolo

Me:  I hate you so much...

2007:  That was actually funny lol.

Me:  peas in a pod, so it follows that I hate you too.

2009:  Listen, you can't really blame 2008 for anything.

Me:  And why not?  He brought little good.  I mean, look at him.

2008:  Hey hey, what's the difference between 2007 and 2009?!

Me:  Let me guess, two years?

2008:  Nothing, they're both ODD!  AHHAHAHAHAAH lololol

2007: AHAHAHAHAHA *slaps 2008 in the back*

Me:  Someone shut them the [bleep] up or I will enter the Guinness Book of World Records for being first person to murder a year.

2009:  You can't murder a year Bojacob.

2008:  OHOHO ZING!  ZING! HAHAH

Me:  Oh great, I'm glad you joined the circus too with these other clowns.

2009:  Listen, let's walk.

Me:  *sigh* fine.

2008:  Hey, where are you guys going?  Don't leave me here!

Me:  What?  Aren't you done causing pain?

2008:  I'm not done yet!  I still have time!  Don't go!  I'll stop joking!

2007:  Come on 2008, let's go.

2009:  You can't murder a year Bojacob, you either put it behind you, or shackle it to your leg and have it slow you down.

Me:  It's not really easy to forget things, 2009.

2009:  What's stopping you from letting go?  Look forward, not backwards.  Things happen, and the best time to forget about it is now.

2008:  What are you talking about?!  Look man, I'm sorry about whatever happened but-

Me:  You're history 2008.  Good bye.

2008:  Wait!  Hah, you really think you can just forget me at will?  You can't forget me! 

[covers ears and walks away]

2008:  The pain is your fault!  They were YOUR choices!  YOURS!  You only have YOURSELF to blame!  YOU HEAR ME?!

Me:  Shut up, just shut up!

2008:  YOU did this to yourself!  YOU!  *loud laughter*

[Maniacal laughter fades away as I and 2009 run far off into the distance]

[stopping and breathing hard]

Me:  Damn it...

2009:  Not very easy, is it.

Me:  No.  It's not.  Time will fix this, though, yeah?

2009:  That's the spirit.

[walking quietly in a vast empty space with a clear blue sky]

Me:  A clear mind, free of worry and pain.

2009:  And why not?  Whatever happened is in the past.

Me:  Yeah...

[walking in silence]

Me:  Hey 2009?

2009:  Hmm?

Me:  Will there be anything life-changing this year?

2009:  What do you mean?

Me:  Well, I mean, you know... road forks ..stuff, come on, you know what I mean.

2009:  Do you want your life to change?

Me:  Kind of, I guess.

2009:  Nothing will happen unless you set the wheels in motion.  Simply start it up, and a string of events will follow.

Me:  Wise and deep, yet very unhelpful.

2009:  You just defined the word "wisdom."

Me:  I mean, people turned the wrong wheels once and it resulted in quite some angst.

2009:  It's pretty complex, but you simply have to turn the correct wheels.  The ones that actually make some logical sense.  Don't let emotions do that for you.

Me:  Give me a clear yes/no answer. 

2009:  It's for you to decide, Bojacob, not me.

Me:  Figures...

2009:  I'm sorry.

[Walking quietly again]

2009:  Do you hate me yet?

Me:  Just a little, but we've only just started yeah?

2009:  Do you want to hear a joke?

Me:  Oh God...

2009:  Really, you might like it.

Me:  Fine, hit me.

2009:  How did 2004 jump the fence?

Me:  You're kidding me...

2009:  Indulge me.

Me:  Fine, how did 2004 jump the fence?

2009:  It was a leap year.

Me:  .....

2009:  And why did 2004 jump the fence?

Me:  ....?

2009:  Afraid the leap years might take a-fence!

Me:  .....mhmfff...um ..ahem

2009:  You smiled :)

Me:  I did not!

2009:  You're still smiling.

Me:  I'm not!  Your vision is curved or something.

2009:  Years have no eye-

Me:  2009, I'll kill you.

2009:  Ok, ok.  :)

[long silence]

Me:  Ok, so I smiled

2009:  I know.

Me:  Well, don't make a big deal out of it.

2009:  Starting the year with a smile.  That counts for something, Bojacob.

Me:  You know, I think this will be a good year :)

2009:  Only if you make it so.

Me:  I will.  I promise that I will.

2009:  Then let us begin!  Where do we start?

Me:  We find your so called "wheel of fate."  Hmm...

[Eyes his bass guitar]

2009:  Uh, I wouldn't exactly call that a "wheel of fate"

Me:  It's a wheel of stfu.  Now, let's hit it!

[Boom-boom-de-boom!]

Goodbye 2008.

Hello 2009!

We make our own frikkin fate here!  No reason for the past to mess with OUR minds!

Happy new year everyone :)  Chins up, and make this one your best!

Mass Suicide of Zunes?

zune-tattoo

Um, whoa.

Apparently, the 30gb Zunes turned into bricks at midnight last night.  How in the blue hell could something like that happen?

My god, I feel so sorry for Microsoft right now.  I cannot even visualize the code that could allow this to happen.

if (currentDate > macWorldDate-6 ) {

stopWorking();

} 

 

That still can't be right...

eesh, my sympathies I guess.

Getting close to 30 kinda sucks

To my great misfortune, my age counter went up by one today.  As soon as the clock hit 12am, I automatically felt like I needed a hip replacement and a bedpan.  Twenty-freakin-eight.  Just... yay.

To those of you who actually remembered, thank you.  It means a lot :) 

To those of you who had Facebook remind you, well, thank you too :)  Still means a lot! 

To those of you who friggin timed the greeting card to be sent today (from like last year), thanks as well :)

To those of you who forgot entirely, thanks!  Last thing I need is a reminder right now.

To mom, thanks for the donut!

Of course, I got the celebratory influenza.  It was so thoughtful as to bless me with its sickness on this very day (from like a whole year of flu-freeness.)  Thus I spent the day in bed watching Ga Rei Zero (which was pretty good, gotta admit.)

As for the birthday gifts I've received?  Well, I got only one, from a friend that understands me quite well.

You, my friend, are a magnificent bastard.  :)  Time to get drunk!

Now what other celebration is on the list?  I kinda lost track...
