Plane Crashes...  
They say plane crashes happen in threes. Here's hoping that holds true for bad years, 'cause 2006, 2007, and 2008 mostly sucked. Granted, things have been looking up lately, so I'm hopeful. Plus, there is this very appropriate horrorscope stolen from caoilfhionn :

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Imagine you're driving down a very wide highway that's 50 lanes across even though there are no lines dividing one lane from another. Speed limit signs aren't posted, and some vehicles are zipping along in zigzag paths at over 100 mph while others crawl along like old-lady turtles. Now and then you've got to weave your way through a congested area where many on-ramps all feed into the road simultaneously. You haven't seen an off-ramp yet, and you're not sure where to get off anyway. I figure, Aquarius, that 2008 had some resemblance to the scenario I just described. Luckily, I predict that no later than your birthday, you will find an off-ramp and exit onto an uncluttered backroad with great scenery.

(Oi. One can hope...)

Plus, the word of the day for the 31st was "handsel" a "lucky prognostic, omen, presage, augury; token or omen of good luck" or "a gift or present (expressive of good wishes) at the beginning of a new year, or on entering upon any new condition, situation, or circumstances, the donning of new clothes, etc.; originally, deemed to be auspicious, or to ensure good luck for the new year, etc" and I got to give and receive nice handmade holiday prezzies shortly after midnight on the first, so we're off to an auspicious start. :)

Current Mood: hopefulhopeful

I hadn't seen that horoscope - and I didn't think my year was that bad, but in retrospect, it may have been. So, I've got ups to look forward to, too - YEAH!
