Here we are, another new year, and now another decade. As you'd expect, people are arguing all over the internet over whether the new decade begins this year in 2010 or next year in 2011. The exact same argument the internet had over whether the new millennium began in 2000 or 2001 a good ten years ago. (Why do I still remember the internet ten years ago?) Of course, it's all arbitrary - technically every year is the beginning of a new decade as any block of ten random years is a decade. People just want to celebrate a shifting of the year's digits. Any excuse to make an even bigger deal out of a holiday about getting drunk. (Wait, that's every holiday.)
I've been less than reliable when it comes to post consistency as of late - not that I mean to be, mind you - and so, to start off the new year (There will be much more substantive content coming yet soon, plus a returning week-long feature from last year to look forward to in February.), have some mini-rambles! A handful of what you could consider cupcake equivalents of my usual ranting and rambling - a little bittersweet treat fit to give you mental indigestion. What more could you ask for?
Oh, of course! I know what you could ask for! The aforementioned mini-rambles turning into a series of several full-fledged posts instead! Because I don't know how to stop myself once I get rambling! (Otherwise it wouldn't be rambling. You can't control rambling. You'd just be holding it back then.)
Spiral Reverie had its third birthday on January 1st - and now, year four begins! (It's like Harry Potter, except it'll kill you inside. Also, less Dumbledore.)
