2007 in a nutshell:  
1. Why do I work here again?
2. No, really - why do I work here again?
3. Had to start eating meat again because my intestines are defective.
4. 7 FUCKING WEDDINGS. I am never doing that for you bastards ever again, you hear me?
4a. Divorce is a long, prolonged, painful process, even for your friends. Don't pretend that it's not.
5. Quit smoking while mostly hiding from the world.
6. Learned that misanthropy is a valid social relation method.
7. Learned that I will have to go back into therapy if I ever want to have faith in the human race EVER AGAIN.

re: 3, I suppose that's a good reason. I wouldn't know, since aside from their irritating inability to process raw meat, my intestines are perfect machines, ready and willing to take all sorts of gastronomic punishment without complaint or consequence. some people eat meat because they've never thought about the alternative, ie, they had no reason. I am infinitely superior to them, as I eat meat because I believe I am a time-traveled spirit of a saber-toothed tiger trapped in this human shell until the day i can once again find the time-portal-stone buried in some far away roast beef sandwich.

re: 7, or you can just proceed through life without faith in humanity? I mean, there are some dregs among us that aren't so bad.

Funny you mention that, when I was little I used to dream I was a triceratops man shaman. I ... talked to spirit moths? I was a weird little kid when I was asleep.

Can we find you a new job at Medtronic or something?

dude, up until november 22nd, i hear ya on #1 and #2.

as for #3, consider it a blessing. the flesh of dead things is tasty, especially when held over an open flame for a period of time.

i also hear you on 4, both a and b.

i don't know if this might work for you, but my faith in humanity was restored by working directly with them in the course of my job. having a job that IS people changed my perspective, so that might help ya. or not. who knows. it relates as well to #1 and #2. good luck duders.

re: 1,2

If your Python/C/C++ or BREW(C on handsets)/Java/J2ME skills are sharp, come out here; NIM is hiring. Email me your resume, and I'll make sure it gets to the right people.

If you point your face forward and step back so your resolution is in thousand year chunks, mankind is pretty awesome. We went from 1/3 of our men dying in homo sapiens on homo sapiens violence to.... a million times less than that. We went from brutal direct subjugation to indirect only occasionally brutal subjugation WITH A MODERATE AMOUNT OF WORLD-BUSINESSPLACE EQUALITY. And women are people now, so that's cool. It's not always possible to have faith in a culture or a place or a 100yr time period, but in the long run, mankind has been pretty extropian. So, good for them.
