Good News/Bad News

The good news? We get a brand new, spanking fresh Year.

The bad news? They gave us one last year, and look what happened.

The good news? It's okay. Someone must have faith in us, because every year, like clockwork, they keep giving us new ones.

The bad news? It's not forever. We get this one (depending, of course, on how the next few hours go). We hopefully get a few more after that, and then - as I understand it - one day, they just stop. We won't get anymore. Some people will, but not necessarily you and me.

The good news? All the more reason to make this one count. This is the one we've been waiting for. Never mind what we said last year. This is the one, baby. The best year ever. Starting... now. Go!
