Obligatory Year-in-Review Post

As 2010 winds to a close assorted media outlets are doing their year-in-review thing, same as always, and the general theme seems to be that 2010 was a pretty crappy year and we're all delighted to get it over with and move on. I can understand this perspective. 2010 was a huge year for disasters, natural and otherwise. In lieu of a robust recovery the economy continued to limp along, moaning piteously. Hope and change proved somewhat lacking.

However, in Meredithland 2010 was actually a pretty great year. I finally landed my dream job - with a raise. I adopted the world's most adorable cat. I had a long and luxurious self-indulgent summer vacation, the best I've ever had. I had good times with good friends and made 94 new ones. I'm actually getting paid to learn a language! How cool is that? I'm happy and healthy and excited for the future.

Happy new year everyone! Best wishes for 2011!


  1. If it makes you feel better... 2010 was astounding in Lauraland too :)

  2. I'm certainly not complaining!
