Welcome 2006 -- 明けましておめでとう (akemashite omedetou, happy new year), everyone. Here's hoping it will be better than 2005. Which (for me, at least) is the best year I've had since 2001 (although 2004 was slightly better than 2002 and 2003, both of which were a total loss).
I suppose it's time to make some resolutions. I'll, uh figure those out here at some point.
