May the New Year be Blessed for all, especially my fellow "oc.net." members;
may our Holy Orthodoxy progress even more in the new year;
and for those named in honor of Saint Basil, "Archbishop of Cesarea and Great Hierarch," Many Years!

Happy new year! To celebrate, I'm going to get plastered, and find some random stranger to go home with.  :P

Just kidding. Real life is much duller. I'll be playing Dragon Age:Origins for a few more hours, then maybe do a bit of reading. I'll probably squeeze a forum post in here and there. The only alcohol I have left is some Irish Cream, and I don't even know if I want that. Of course, in the Dragon Age game I could always start a romance with one of my party members, or stop by the brothel and pay 40 silver to hear some funny noises and see a lady of the night in her under garments. Exciting!

Happy, healthy and peaceful new year to one and all!

Best wishes to all the Basils!

I'll be spending the evening quietly at home, just like any other night.

Happy New Year everyone!  May God keep you all safe and sound throughout the year.  May He bless you with peace, love and joy!

Lord, have mercy on us all!

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Happy New Year to everyone here. 

Here's hoping for a good 2010 and a new and improved decade. 

I was remembering last night how ten years ago there were so many worries about Y2K and all that.  But the fireworks that year were incredible (Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Thames in London, Sydney Harbour Bridge) and we made it into the next morning with things still working.

But, dude, this is like the celebration of the greatest philosopher ever! :( :P
Oh, well. I kinda did the same thing. But with other games, Dragon Age has still not "arrived".
Though I've walked the valley of the shadow of the death, I've fallen not. Not completely. Not yet.
