that's not a good sound

three years makes it a tradition, right?

Much like I post the text of the Declaration of Independence on my LJ every July 4th, I'm now going to post the entirety of "Auld Lang Syne" on my LJ every January 1st. Sing it like you mean it at your favorite tempo (Hawaiian slack key guitar music optional)

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
and auld lang syne?

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

And surely you’ll buy your pint cup!
And surely I’ll buy mine!
And we'll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

We two have run about the hills,
and pulled the daisies fine;
But we’ve wandered many a weary foot,
since auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

We two have paddled in the stream,
from morning sun till dine;
But seas between us broad have roared
since auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

And there’s a hand my trusty friend!
And give us a hand o’ thine!
And we’ll take a right good-will draught,
for auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

poinging toast

a toast!

*flings slightly singed bread at the screen*

No, wait. That's RHPS toast, I wanted one-toast! Fuckin' turny-button lied to me!

Anyway. The real toast. *raises his Planter's Punch Moste Potente*

Well.

thus far 2009 feels remarkably like 2008.

I dunno, I expected flying cars or something. Or maybe crackers with summer sausage and cheese.

I remain unimpressed.

flames!

two panicky moments in one night?! egads!

Earlier, i went in to peek at the rabbits, and Kiwi was sprawled out on his side. Happily, as soon as I took a couple steps towards him, he sat bolt upright and looked around as if to say "What? I'm awake, I'm awake!" Daddy's little lethargic bunny. He accepted a few pets and then hopped away to nibble at some romaine.

Then my iMac decided that it was going to indulge in some image persistence (the LCD answer to phosphor burn-in) from Firefox. I've disabled the parts of the FF window that were causing it, and I'll be running screen-savers of either all-white or scintillating colors for the foreseeable future. Grumble grumble, gripe gripe!

Ah well, at least I'm not on fire.
