Just something I thought of at 3 in the morning......

        i just recently watched "Midnight in Paris" and it tells a story about a young writer who wants nothing more, then to live in Pairs in the 20's. he then travels back into what he thinks is the "golden era." whilst in that time, he meets some interesting characters and they all play a role, but when meeting one in particular, that characters divulges what she thinks is the "golden era." then more characters pitch in their ideas of what they think is the "golden era." it turns out to be that our protagonist thinks that the 1920's is the golden age, but others beg to differ. one says that she would rather spend her days in the 1870's or so, then her friends think it is in the Renaissance time.
        what i saw here in this film is that different people of different times think that about 80 or so years in the past, or when a new era or even an eon washes over like a wave, it was the hot spot in our time line. and in the specific place where someone wants to go, lets say to the 20's for an example; the people there would think you are mad to think that here, in their time, is the time to live in. then they would tell you that the time to live in is in their past. it would end up going all the way back to where civilization began if the mind set would aloud.
        what im trying to get at here, is that in about 80 years or so, people are going to look back upon this decade, or even this year and say, "i wish i could go back in time and live there and have loads of fun." don't we all want that? just to be with our favorite friends, our family and just have fun with one another? well, i propose two choices. one, we can all lay down our hats and say, ahhhh screw it. it just another year, or throw the towel in, as my late teacher used to say. or, we could all have one hell of a year that people would not take to forgetting about. and would want, and hope to return to our time and live in our way of life. well, of course some would say that some of our lives are boring and should live like "we used to."
      so heres my point. why not make this year the best year anyone could imagine. imagine, that is one word that can create anything in our minds. and why not? we can create a better future, and we can create a better lifestyle for all of us. let's make 2012 one good f-ing year people!!

Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and old lang syne?

For auld auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne.
We'll take a cup of kindness yet, 
for auld lang syne.

Have a wonderful New Year everyone!
