Happy New Year, everyone!
It's so hard to believe it's the year 2010 already.
Didn't we all think that by the year 2010, we'd all own flying cars, and the human race would be colonizing Mars?
When I was a kid, I thought that by 2010, I'd be happily married, have at least a couple of kids, be a famous rocket scientist and live somewhere cool and exciting in a big, beautiful house with a Volvo parked in the garage.
2 out of 5 isn't bad - I am happily married, and I do live somewhere cool and exciting. But no kids yet, and we live in a tiny little apartment with no garage and no car to speak of!
And I am happy being a lawyer - I think being a rocket scientist would have been tough. I couldn't have predicted all of those NASA budget cuts.
Which also explains the as-yet uncolonized Mars.
Happy New Year!#
