Bienvenue à 2010

**HAPPY**NEW**YEAR**

This time ten years ago the world was in a panic about the Y2K bug. This year, at the end of the first decade of the 21st century…

Well, I don’t know what the world is worrying about because I am far too self-absorbed at the moment. I’m worrying about my upcoming trip to the Paris archives and whether I can get my thesis completely drafted by September.

In the immediate present, I am worrying about whether I will find enthusiasm to perform some Chaos Dispelling magic on my room this afternoon so I can start the New Year without a fortress of books cluttering the floor, papers filed away and clean clothes in the cupboards/drawers and not in the laundry basket.

Here’s to 2010!
