Fuck 2009

I don’t know about you, but I thought that – as years go – 2009 was fairly shitty. There were a few good points (awesome birthday party, Primavera, holidaying around Italy with my wife), but when I look back, I can see a whole bunch of shit that I really didn’t want to have to deal with. So hooray for 2010.

Except when my wife asked me what I was most looking forward to about 2010, I went blank. The joke about it being the year we make contact is getting a little old. The only thing I could think was “at least Lost will FINALLY be over.”

The AV Club lists 32 of their most anticipated movies, games, books and albums of 2010, and that’s a pretty good start. I’m pretty psyched for Shutter Island and Tron Legacy, but I have to be honest, I’m not particularly fussed about Bioshock 2.

Most of all, what I’m looking forward to about 2010 is that it won’t be 2009. That’s good enough for me.
