I've seen a lot of "fuck 2010" posts in the last few days, but I have to say, 2010 was kinda ok.

Which is to say that 2010 wasn't so bad in comparison to, for example, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, or 2004. For example, this year I was involved in no lawsuits. I was not deposed even once. I had no traumatic break-ups, nor was I dating a sociopath. I did not set foot in City Hall or 850 Bryant. And this was the first year since 2002 in which I didn't get a panicked phone call from Barry in late December saying, "If you don't write a huge check right now, I can't give anyone Christmas bonuses." In fact, I didn't have to write any checks to keep the club open this year, for the first time since 2002. Though largely this was because of the technicality that the gargantuan check I had to write to cover our suspension in Jauary 2010 was written in December 2009. Details, details.

So, thanks to dramatically reduced expectations, 2010 wasn't so bad.

Also, I saw some good bands.
