2016: Year in Review

Should “in” be capitalized in the title?

Certain components of english I’ll seriously never master- E.g., the whole lay, laid, lie, lain fiasco. Also, what’s a past participle? Never mind, I looked it up. It’s pretty straightforward. It took me at least 25 years to master the use of “were” in a subjunctive setting, so I may be a lost cause.

Anyway, 2016. What a year! Stuff happened and other things didn’t. What. a. ride. I’ve been to a lot of weddings this year. Which made me think that there should also be divorce parties. This sounds like it could be a standup’s joke from the ’80s, but I’ve put a lot of thought into it. Obviously, those would most likely be really sad. However, if both parties were pleased with the cutting of ties, wouldn’t that be a raucous partee? Yeah, you’re right, it would be fun.

2017 should prove to be an exciting year. Tonejumpoff turns seven-years-old. I checked the wayback machine to see what posts were chronicled from the lost years, and dear lord, I wrote some crass stuff. There are a few dates registered, but only one from the good years. In other words, the years where I didn’t think about the repercussions of writing horrid shit. Lots of crazy quotes and such. I mostly miss the recounting of the Sticker Game. I also like to think about the old kickflip bet, and how funny it would be to pay it off decades later. As my body decays, that seems less likely.

Anyway, I love each and every one of you.
