So long suckers!

Well, it's the last day of 2008-Thank God! So, to jump on the bandwagon, here's some of my hits and misses for 2008.

Election night-I still get chills and teary eyed when I watch the news reels. Words can not describe the pride I felt in my country.

Life altering happiness for my friends. Babies, new jobs, new houses. It makes me happy when my friends are happy.

New Music: New music from The Black Kids, Santogold, The Ting Tings, Vampire Weekend. Indie rock was actually good this year.

Movies: Iron man (Robert Downey Jr. ME-OW!), In Bruges, Cloverfield, Be Kind, Rewind. I'll admit that I haven't seen a ton of new movies but these are ones that stuck out with me.

Tina Fey playing Sarah Palin. Priceless

The Misses:

While on the subject of Sarah Palin-she's an idiot. Enough said.

Prop 8-with as much pride as I had in my country, I felt like I was sucker punched when this passed.

The loss of loved ones and people who inspired me. You will be sadly missed and will forever hold a place in my heart.

Movies: Where to I start?

Dark Knight-now before everyone jumps all over me saying how great this movie was, you're wrong. I'll give you Heath Ledger but the rest of the movie- crap

Indiana Jones-Dear Lord! I had to kick my own ass for watching this movie. Two hours of my life, I will never get back.

That's just the beginning and I'm sure I could go on and on but I just want to tell 2008 to get the hell off my lawn! I am looking forward to 2009 and I am determined that it will be a good year.

I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe New Years eve. I hope the new years brings you mountains of happiness, success, calm and peace. I can't wait to see all the whacky adventures ahead of us. May peace, love and happiness follow you.

I'm outta here-see ya next year! Peace out! (oh yeah, I'm bringing that back for 2009)
