... and never brought to mind

Roulette01rWell, I guess I need to try to get The Girls organized to go see ZooLights up at the Lincoln Park Zoo (it's been our family NYE "thing" since they were little).

I really hope that 2013 doesn't suck too bad. However, judging from the living hell that 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 have been (how I've gone this far without becoming some sort of statistic, I don't know), I wouldn't bet against the trend. But maybe, just maybe, years are like red and black in roulette, and exist as independent events (perhaps "trials" would be a better word, if one wanted to get all Kafka-esque), so I shouldn't predict "hell" for 2013 ... but unlike the pockets on a roulette wheel, time is constant across the calendar, so the fact that things have been HORRIBLE for a very long time does not give me much hope that they will change for the better.

So raise a toast to change ... and hope that it won't come in the form of deeper darker nightmare scenarios.
