Last post of 2005.

2005 has been a year of ups and downs, with many good memories, and just as many bad memories.  I celebrated my first year of marriage, I went back to college full time, my brother graduated from college and so did my sister.  I also fucked my student loans up, so by the time I get my sophomore loans I will be a junior.  Makes for tight budgeting, but it also makes it so I don’t have to pay back as much.  I guess I could borrow more, but I don’t want to have to pay it back later, so I will just borrow the smallest amount needed to pay for my classes and books.

This year also saw the tragic wreck of Arnie while racing, but thankfully he survived and is doing great.  He truly is a survivor.  From being airlifted by helicopter on July 2, to walking out of the hospital eighteen days later, he showed that nothing is too much to walk away from.  He probably won’t race this next season, but I am sure he will be back for 2007.  Better watch your ass, Mr. Lewis, next year you won’t win the championship simply because you ride for the sponsor of the track.

Summer also held a surprise storm, that did much to show that the current administration does not fucking care about its citizens.  Not that I care that much either, but it opened up many eyes.

Technology crept forward, and gas prices skyrocketed.  Now its cool to own a gas sipper, not a H2 with giant rims lifted 6 feet in the air.  Some people still drive them, but soon they will be crushed by the looming gas price spike

My prediction for gas costs in 2006: It will hit $8 a gallon after storms in the Gulf, and settle around $3.75 finally.

I hate going to theaters.

I have been to more movies in the theater this year than I have been to in some time. And one thing sits in my mind about going to the movie theater. Going to a movie theater sucks. Expensive tickets, wicked overpriced snacks, (5.75 for nachos) dirty theaters, rude staff first off. Then once you are in theater you have to listen to the pack of moron teenagers in the back, people come in late and walk in front of you 30 times to find seats when they could just sit down two rows in front of you and have any seat they wanted. Commercials run for 20 minutes before the movie starts and then a half hour of previews. If I am paying 10 bucks a ticket, you think the theater could at least afford to mop the floors daily, or have towels in the bathroom, or a place to put trash other than the floor, but I guess not.

Oh yeah, and the movies being played suck also.

The only good movies I have seen this year have been free to see, except for DOOM.
