Well, it's the first day of the new year: 1/1/11.
I began the day by running some much-needed computer utilities. I downloaded a firmware update for my operating system (Mac OS-X, version 10.4.11), ran an optimizing application on my hard drive, and deleted some unused files. My Mac should be really happy now. It's like having a clean slate to start working on this year.
The old year left without much ado (fuss, trouble, bother). I briefly heard some fireworks going off in my neighborhood at midnight, but I was already snuggled in bed with my cat, Leo.
To all of my friends and family, I wish them prosperity and best wishes.
