Yes. 2012 was a big fat zero. Annus horribilis, to borrow from the Queen. Having my career completely shut down has been the driving force behind the misery in these parts, and the savings have been pretty much exhausted. No idea what 2013 will bring, new government be damned. Perhaps a resurrection of sorts. And since society encourages people to put a smile on things even if you're on the verge of depression or hopelessness, the blog is the only place where one could express themselves (a little bit more). Such is life. Until next time.
