The end of 2014

How to end 2014? Well, how do you end something that feels like it never got started? I don’t feel like I got anywhere this year at all…

I’m ending the year with a bit of a debate… New glasses or new tattoo? It’s currently undecided, the final decision will come down to cost, but I’ve booked an eye test for Sunday and am getting a price for the tattoo tomorrow. Maybe a miracle will happen and I’ll be able to afford both!

The tattoo was winning, until I went to work yesterday. I found that last time I was in, I’d made a mistake. Ok, that happens sometimes.. But you try and avoid it, don’t you? Anyway, the mistake was because I’d misread a letter (as in an individual character, not a whole written thing). Basically, it made me realise I can’t read from the computer screen clearly. And I’m a year overdue new glasses.

Hang on, isn’t an individual character a whole written thing? Let’s not go there…

Anyway.. I’m looking for a way to end the year, as this is likely to be my last post of the year (pictures of glasses of beer excepted!)

So, my song to end this year is the divine comedy’s ‘ten seconds to midnight‘:

Apes turn into men
And grapes turn into wine
How we made it to 9 I’ll never know

Man looks for a mate
But fate plays cruel tricks
And 7 turns to 6
Still he’s alone

Along comes number 5
Eureka, I’m alive
I think there 4 I am a lucky man

From this balcony
The 2 of us can see
The house where we first met 1 wet Sunday

Neil Hannon

Anyway, I hope everyone has a happy and healthy 2015 and all your hopes and dreams come true (and stuff like that)
