The Decade of "Oh My God Is It Finally Over ?" comes to a close.
"Will you feel it? Will you reach up and lick the full, pregnant, bursting blue moon on New Year's Eve?
Will you howl and wail and stomp your feet and raise your glass high and say oh my fucking God let us now move and dance and shimmy and finally, finally get this nasty nefarious monkey of a miserable previous decade off our collective backs once and for all, invite in the new and the slippery and the sloppy messy divine as you burn off the sour and the fatalistic and the doomed? I hope you will.
It's a portentous night in many ways, this particular New Year's Eve, and not just because of the moon. It is, most notably, the end of the Aughts, the Zeros, the Zips, and everything they contained, hurled, dragged us down into like a Goliath tarantula drags down an unsuspecting sparrow. Are you ready? Whatever will you wear? Whomever will you lovingly grope? How deeply will you sigh?" [Mark Morford]
Not only the U.S., but the entire world, is emerging from the infamous Bush Administration. Eight years of stolen elections and ritualized lying, of absolute moronic stupidity, by one of the worst political leaders of all time. Time to let out a big collective sigh and thank those unseen dieties, if that is your thing, for ending this decade that was, at best, an unfortunate nightmare.
The future awaits..... So it is time to raise your glasses and murmur, or wildly shout:
Happy New Year !
Štastný nový rok !
Un próspero año nuevo !
Felice anno nuovo !
С наступающим Новым Годом !
Ευτυχισμένο το Νέο Έτος !
