Happy New Year

Laden with gift cards and the lasting effects of time-release holiday cheer, I made my way this afternoon to the Ye Olde Village of Mass Consumerism which is Emeryville, CA. It should have been sweet with like a ten-pixel border of ironypessimism to see my fellow shoppers in that fleeting state of being, that state which causes a traffic spike in Health & Fitness and Home Improvement, that cocktail of goodwill and generosity from last year’s close and optimism and earnestness for this year’s dawn, that short-lived drunkenness of spirit. But instead it was just sweet. So happy new year, all.
