Here we go. It's 2012.
This is not an average year. It's what I like to call an aggravated year. The year will not pass quietly. There's going to be a lot going on. Here's a list of some of the more obvious things that spring to mind.
- It's an election year. Watch out, the politicians are coming. Check your wallet.
- It's a leap year. This year will be a day longer than usual. Can't wait.
- It's an Olympic year. That's generally a good thing, but it comes on top of everything else. Everybody pile on. Remember, the judges will be awarding style points.
- Sandiquiz points out that Queen Elizabeth II will celebrate the 60th year of her reign soon. Did I mention that the summer Olympics will be held in London? If you're an Anglophile, you'll have two reasons to visit.
- The sun is nearing the peak of its eleven-year cycle. We can expect lots of sunspots and coronal mass ejections. Maybe a magnetic storm will take out a transformer near you.
For those of you who were looking forward to a peaceful new year, I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Try again in twelve months.
As for the rest of us, onward and upward, eh? The sooner we get started, the sooner we'll be done.*Previous Entry
* Except it doesn't really work that way, does it? A year takes a year (plus a day, in this case) no matter how you go about it. Very well, then. Keep slogging.
