Dave's Thoughts of the Day: December 31st

For all acquiantance be forgot
For all of all mankind
May all your nations see your spot
For all of auld lang syne.

To this day I *still* don't know the actual words of this song!   My goodness, 2012 is over already?   I'm sad to see it go.   I have much in life ahead of me:

Clear life of debts
Find love and companionship
Eat a porterhouse steak
Beat 38 seconds in a 50 yard swim
Dive off a 10m platform

I think the official New Years Resolution will be to beat the 38 second mark.  Won't be easy! I'm not at all in shape, but I feel like I'm getting faster anyway.   Good times are ahead...

Tonight's manner of celebrating New Years is not how I envisioned it but it's the way I and my family have done it every year.   We came into the world together, so we might as well enter 2013 together too.  Then, back to work and back to Los Angeles.

My hope is for great prosperity for all of you.  I'm grateful to be alive for a new year, and I wish the same for all of us one year from now.  Sending my best...

Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind ?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and old lang syne ?

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we'll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.
And surely you'll buy your pint cup !
and surely I'll buy mine !
And we'll take a cup o' kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

We two have run about the slopes,
and picked the daisies fine ;
But we've wandered many a weary foot,
since auld lang syne.

We two have paddled in the stream,
from morning sun till dine† ;
But seas between us broad have roared
since auld lang syne.

And there's a hand my trusty friend !
And give us a hand o' thine !
And we'll take a right good-will draught,
for auld lang syne.
