Happy 2010!

The spectacular fireworks display from Sydney, Australia last night, where of course, it’s already tomorrow.

Best wishes to everyone for a safe and happy New Year’s Eve celebration. Let’s all hope the next year/decade isn’t quite as massively craptacular as the last one.

    Sydney on New Year’s Eve should be on everyone’s bucket list. The magnificence of the fireworks is only partially revealed by video.

    A true world-class city, that Vancouver and Toronto unfortunately pale far behind.

    Happy 2010 also!

    Unfortunately, as someone who has extensive dealings with the Chinese, I know that this decade will continue the deterioration of the west and rapid rise of the east.

    Hope you have a nice night RT. I am spending NYE in Jasper with my husband and our dog, sipping fine wine in front of the fire. ‘Tis very nice. Just taking a quick break to check my Blackberry while DH goes outside to fill his lungs with tobacco. (I’m so pathetic).

    Happy New Year!

  3. Unfortunately… I know that this decade will continue the deterioration of the west and rapid rise of the east.

    Why is that “unfortunate”?

    On the bright side, the rise of the East and an intimate encounter with Asian culture might help the West familiarise itself with precisely the process that’s driving the decline you fear—karma.

    I do hope this intersection though goes a little beyond the commercialization of some Eastern religious traditions. There is only so much yoga I can stomach. My jiu jitsu group (more self defense, less MMA) was evicted thanks to the precocious yoga enthusiasts who just fell in love with that bikram yoga while shelling out hundreds of dollars to become license instructor.

    Btw, Happy New Year, Red! I look forward to more exchanges on your blog! Now, where is my bottle of Brut.

    Happy New Year, RT.

    First time I’ve managed to stay awake until midnight in years. Of course, I’m shit-faced.

  7. Hopefully, this will be a stellar year for you RT.

    With the neverending analysis about the last decade, I thought this one the best:

    The decade began with Y2K and ended with WTF.

    20-fucking-10. I always said I’d get married by 2010.

    Time to walk the plank.

    I don’t drink on New Years Eve, so as to greet the year ahead bright-eyed and full of positive energy and unbridled optimism. It’s 9:30 AM in Toronto, just finished 20 minutes of aquabics, I’ve got a delicious coffee in front of me and I’m just about to review the morning news and…

    …well, that didn’t last long.

    Oh well, Happy New Year everyone.

    I’m not sure applauding the rise of the East to be a pleasant start to the new year, but not worth an argument.
    Too lazy to make my own delicious coffee today, I am off to Aroma.

    Happy New Year!

  11. It was a very quiet end to the year around here — just me and a bottle of wine. Ironically, fell asleep shortly after watching 24 Hour Party People a terrific film about Tony Wilson, the guy who founded Factory Records in the late 70s.
