Hello 2008 baby – Get out of here stinky old 2007!

HAPPY NEW YEARS to Everyone!
It’s 2008. No flying cars yet, though there is a boat load of snow on the ground.
We spent the evening with a group of friends in Oakville (west side of Toronto). We left around 12:30 and the snow was coming down. Driving in snow is always interesting. There were a couple of places when I didn’t really want to be driving (especially when the snow is flying directly at the car and you can barely see the road).
We made it home in one piece, and I’m thankful that we left when we did because it looks like it snowed pretty hard all night and it’s still going. We would have been stuck in Oakville (not that that would have been a bad thing but I like my bed and we have movies and stuff we want to watch today).
A little 2007 recap:
Number of Books read: 82
Most Enjoyable Book read: The Persepolis series by Marjane Satrapi
Enjoyable movies viewed in 2007 (out of the ones I can remember): Superbad, Juno, The Tracey Fragments, No Country for Old Men
