Reboot the New Year

The world doesn't seem to be off to a good start this year.



May I suggest that we reboot and start over again?

  1. Suits me. I hope there'll be no moustaches in the reboot.

  2. I agree, the New Years resolutions I made have all gone to pot. One in particular was to learn the Greek alphabet from A to Ω I only got as far as Epsilon.

  3. I am already dreading 2016 (Presidential election year)...

  4. I'm not sure this time last year was much cheerier - what with Indonesian volcanoes, war in Syria, bloody Putin, a polar vortex and your very own Justin Bieber in trouble again...

    Take me back to 1985, please.

  5. I'm going with Jon, but I'm going to ask him to make a short detour to 1984.

    1. 1984 for me was (eventually) very significant, and therefore is one of my favourite years, but its joys spread to New Year 1985. And it is New Year we're talking about... Jx

    2. Awwww... well let's do it all over again! You've got to visit 1984 for the build up to New Year. The build up is the best bit.
      Meanwhile in 1984/5 I partied like a wild dervish. No regrets.

    3. @ Miss Scarlet: Is that the era of the railroad platform incident post?

    4. Ha Ha!!! That was 1987, but I was getting a bit knackered by then... burnt out by 1988.

    5. Ms Scarlet: If only I could revisit my "coming out year" (and if only I still looked as I did then - just follow that link I put in my previous comment). I was doing more things like a "wild dervish" than merely partying, I can tell you! Jx

    6. I followed your link and it made me feel very nostalgic...!
      Parties always meant sleepovers :-)

    7. Too late. Mind you, Top of the Pops 80s Special is so often on repeat I could probably list the running order :-)

    8. Very sweet post Jon. 1984 was also a milestone for me: I started my official training as a classical musician and I met there the the most important man of my life. :)
