fuck, I just realized that I *still* don't have any pictures of myself ever wearing those fun 200_ new year's glasses with the 00s for the eyes, and 2008 was my next-to-last chance! the proportion of 'bitter regret' in that lingering complex post-new year emotional mix has just increased by at least 20%. friends, PLEASE help me to not repeat this tragic oversight for the third year in a row next year!
in fact, in order to help me help myself, I have just created a future-dated post as a reminder. which reminds me, I should probably start learning to use my Google calendar.
