new year's

There was scotch - the Lagavulin 16 year, a Laphroaig cask strength and the Macallan's cask strength (a whopping 115 proof!) - and there was a funkyweird Turkish liquor called Yeni Raki, which was clearly related to both the Macedonian Rakija I spoke of before (grape brandy) and sambuca, as it is an aniseseed flavored grape brandy - an intriguing flavor. But it was the cheap champagne that kicked our ass.

We were lured down to Baltimore for a relatively quiet evening by the opportunity to see some friends we'd not seen for a number of years. The chilluns were literally unrecognizable, they'd grown so much. It was a good evening. There are others I'd have liked to have seen that night, but they're local, and I'll see them again soon.

This is the place where I should recount the highlights of last year, and tell my wishes for the future. But the past year has been weird and fucked up, and I really don't want to get into it, and it feels like anything I dare wish for next year will surely go sour if dare put words to it, so we'll just do this:

#include < lastyear.h >
#include < nextyearswishes.h >

And leave it at that.
