Merry New Year! I am happy to report that I am about to drink my way out of 2019. This, the links, will be my last act of sobriety. I hope everyone has plans for a safe and responsible, excepting fireworks usage, New Year. May 2020 be better than 2019 in every way possible.

Australia is having a bit of a fire. I imagine poisonous fauna of every variety fleeing before the flames and alternatively lying in wait for firefighters.

I chuckled at the Washington Free Beacon’s Man of the Year.

Mobile PD shows its sensitive side.

Woman wakes up after being in coma for seven months. Disappointed to find Trump still President. Okay, I made up that last bit.


I was thinking about where I was 20 years ago on NYE (6th and Congress in Austin), and remembered that the girl I was dating at the time inexplicably loved this song. So, happy New Year.
