Christmas is over, a disappointing New Years Eve party is still days away, James Brown is dead. It’s a boring week. Luckily it’s also the last week of 2006, meaning it’s time for the year in review.
Personally, it was a good year, full of experience and growing and self-actualization, and I got two iPods for Christmas. I’m not sure what everyone else did in ’06, but I’m pretty confident this means mine was better than yours.
As for how “the world” fared in 2006, I think it’s fair to say it had its ups and downs, although on the whole it was better than years past. No hurricanes, tsunamis, presidential reelections or Deuce Bigalow installments. The economy strengthened (I think, don’t fact check me) and the government addressed a different kind of War on Terror – trans fats. And while I’m sure that about sums up all 361 days, why not go overboard and post a few defining moments, some statistical trivia, and anything else I can find by Googling “crazy+shit+2006.” If there’s anything you’d like me to address that you think I might forget, email it over and I’ll be sure to include it. Because more than anything I’m a man of the people. And chances are if it happened more than two weeks ago it’s off my radar. Stay tuned.
