I just wanted to say Happy New Years from iBackpackCanada. I’m really looking forward to 2010, and expect it to be a monumental year in my life. Resolutions have been made, ideas are in the works, and I’m ready to start completing goals I had set out years ago in my life. So wish me luck!
In an effort to make this post not just a rhetorical piece of filler material, the National Association of Good Grammar want to remind people that 2010 is pronounced Twenty-Ten, I’ve been advocating this for like 8 or 9 years when I realized how stupid it was that we were saying “Two thousand, x”. Apparently Robert C. Clarkes, 2001: A Space Odyssey is part of the reason to blame. But I hold no grudge, Clarke is sci-fi God. So with the start of a new decade, these Grammar Police are making a full-on attack and are hoping to win the war on correct pronunciation of years. Godspeed.
VIA’s Virtual Vivian did a nifty post on some of the best places to bring in the New Year in Canada. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to make it to any of these, but had a superb night all the same at the Paragon Theatre in Halifax, where for $30 I was able to watch The Slowcoaster Story, The Jimmy Swift Band, Three Sheet, Scientists of Sound, and Aaron Collier. I’ll see what I can do about finding pictures from that, but that night is a bit of a blur, and I imagine the photos will be as well. My camera holding skills go out the window once a few drinks find their way into me.
**Update: Found them. As I expected. Blurry.
So once again, Happy New Years, have a safe winter, stay warm, stay happy, be awesome.
