The year is dead. Long live the year!

I ushered in the last day of the old year by sleeping off my Academic Mayhem exhaustion well into the afternoon; it was a bit like returning from a foreign country and needing that first night's sleep to be a good twelve hours or so. Even the dog found my sleeping dull and deserted me.

Because I don't have much to say that's meditative or profound tonight, and because I did most of my year-in-review writing back on the solstice (thereby inaugurating what's been about ten days of year-end thinking), I'll just wish you all a happy kick-off to the new year. May your first night's sleep in 2006 be delicious.
