It’s 2009, do you know where your millenium is?

I can barely believe this is the final year of the 00’s.

I remember the excitement and denouement of 1999,
the anticipation of Y2K,
the ‘yawn’ when it didn’t happen.

I remember 9/11,
the SARS outbreak,
the blackout of 2003.

I remember my disappointment during George Bush’s first term,
and the subsequent disbelief at his second,
but I also remember my relief at Obama’s win.

I remember our bullshit minority governments with a little more venom than I wish to publish today.

I just hope I remember to blink when the second decade of the 21st century begins!
