My son was born in 08 and for that it will always be a very special year for me.

My youngest was also born in 08, and we also moved into our new home. So 08 has been a great year for my family

The politics will stop sucking when I'm Emperor of the United States. :wink: ... or when we don't have incompetent, corrupt nincompoops in (any) office. Too bad we have a better chance of me being Emperor. I'm glad to hear your '08 was great. :)

Things are guaranteed to improve in '09! Americans now have hope, as we were devoid of that completely before November. :roll: We can also look forward to change...! Oh wait. :lol:

But I'm with Doug... '08 was rather bad. I had a conversation with my SO three months ago about that and again the other day... For all that had a decent or good '08, here's to an even better '09! For those of us who are still washing the crap off and trying to find a paddle (just in case next year's creek is even deeper,) let's hope that '09 doesn't get any worse. :lol: // End cynicism.

Can't complain too much - I'm still alive. But seriously, here's to life, love, and happiness. (And money.) May we all find what we seek in the next year! (And may we all find even more stuff to seek for the year after that! :lol: )

Yeah I gotta go with Scott on this one. I've had worse and I've had better.



Looks guys, we only got to hang loose another four years and it will all be over. 2012 FTE!!!

08 has been a crappy year for me as well...

Lost my Dad this year unexpectedly, he was only 56...

Company laid off a large amount of people, I got by but have more work and responsibility then every but no more pay...

Just a lot of little things that add up to big things...


I'm so looking forward to 2009!!

So there is hope. That's great nicked999. Lets hope it is a sign of better things to come.

Glad to see at least some of you guy's year didn't suck as bad a mine. Sitting at home the last couple of weeks I think I'm watching too much TV. Seems all they talk abut is doom and gloom. Maybe it just getting too me. :eek:

Emperorgix.............Emperor of the United States. I could deal with that for 4 years. :lol:

:ferg: As Doug's personal doom and gloom forecaster I can understand why he is bummed...

However...

2009 is destined to be far, far worse- politically, economically, everythingly...can't wait. :roll:

Of course, I could be wrong. Lets hope so.

First off, go Nicked, go! :) Best wishes to ya!


Second, since Nicked's got the rope, is anyone thirsty? 'Cuz I've got Kool-Aid and it'll take away ALL your problems. :lol:

Anyone seen Death Race (the new one)? Remember the words at the beginning? The US economy collapses in 2012. Many people lose their job and crime skyrockets. Jails are overcrowded and the government turns to private companies running private jails. ... Should have been set in 2009. :lol: // End doom and gloom.
