Well-wishing! (Schmoozing time.)

A Happy New Year to all! May the next 12 months bring more marvellous highs than all the months before. And thanks to all of you for reading, whether you stopped by from a random google search or you regularly check and comment. Actually, special thanks to the last group. :)

And if you're a spam program, may your firm be outsourced to Tajikistan and your creators develop gangrene.

I'll be back writing soon enough - I'm just extremely snowed under with work this week. Deadlines approach and term papers remain unfinished (even unstarted). Bah. I blame previous procrastination. Never mind, because next weekend should be fantastic!

Again, have a great New Year everyone - enjoy the low January sun and the long nights. Or vice versa, if you're in, say, Australia. Ciao.


  • Wasn't this year awful! Nothing but disasters and Michael Jackson trials... Reminds me of the cinese curse 'may you live in interesting times'...

  • That's how the word should actually be spelt: 'cinese'. I'm serious....

  • "In a speech in Cape Town, South Africa, on June 7, 1966, Robert F. Kennedy said, 'There is a Chinese curse which says, 'May he live in interesting times.' Like it or not, we live in interesting times...' Journalists picked up the phrase and it has become a commonplace.
    However, the popularity of this "Chinese curse" puzzles Chinese scholars, who have only heard it from Americans. If it is of Chinese origin, it has somehow escaped the literature, although it may be a paraphrase of a liberal translation from a Chinese source, and therefore unrecognizable when translated back to Chinese. It might be related to the Chinese proverb, 'It's better to be a dog in a peaceful time that be a man in a chaotic period.'"
