Your humble Devil is planning to get fairly plastered this evening, so I shall bid you all a merry new year the now, so as not to miss it.
2009 has been an amusing year—full of vindications and "I told you so"s from those of us who insisted that our lords and masters were on the fiddle, just like the climate scientists—so it's not been too shabby.
Personally, it has seen some ups and downs, but with work getting ever more interesting and enjoyable and having gained a wife, this last year has been, generally, a good one in Hell Towers.
Here's hoping that 2010 is even better—for us and, from all of us here at The Kitchen, for all of you out there...
Happy New Year!
