There's a mere eight hours left of the 'Noughties' and I, for one, wish it a hearty "Sod off". On a personal level, I had sex about twice (this is a decade I'm talking about here, remember), gained weight then lost it then gained it again (repeat to fade), and aged approximately ten years as I did very little else. Although I left my mother's bosom (otherwise known as 'her house'), I bounced from one pointless job to the next as I fought to enjoy myself in a variety of bars and clubs.
I took drugs occasionally, smoked every day, laughed now and again with chums, but ultimately floated aimlessly like a fat feather in the breeze.
I thought it would all end differently, however. My American ex and I have been emailing and, even though it's phenomenally late in the day, there was talk about her getting a flight to the UK right now.
Except she didn't and I'm back to my standard London New Year's do in a bar with Ed™, starting in about 1 hour.
But back to the summary, some fuckwits hijacked planes and slammed them into buildings, ruining just about everything for everyone, 'we' then went to 'war', and Ricky Gervais co-wrote The Office only to become more famous and annoying. Disgracefully, nothing else from the past 120 months springs to mind.
But that's just my impression. What are your thoughts on the first tenth of our brave new century? Exciting? Epoch-creating? Or just bollocks?
Answers on a postcard please, or in the comments section below...
And HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
I've started drinking already.
