Owen Parsons, on his hopes for 2010
owen: HAPPY NEW YEAR's eve
me: OMG YOU TOOOOOOOOO
owen: Let's hope the planet keeps rotating at the exact speed necessary to not hurl all of humanity off into deadly space for one more year.
me: just one more?
owen: Well, it's a little much to ask it to do that forever.
owen: That's pretty unlikely.
me: you're refreshingly frank about man's inevitable demise
owen: Well, we are clinging to a little rock orbiting at 19 miles per second around a barely-contained nuclear explosion, and there's nothing but cold death in every direction.
owen: Really, we've had some great luck so far.
owen: 2009 was a good year full of no planet-ending cataclysms.
owen: We'll see if 2010 can stack up.
Boy, 2009 sure was...a representative unit of time. Let's hope this next unit is...equally arbitrary.

WHOA, reblogged and tumblr-followed for metaphors that cut to the core of my soul. And I like the simplicity of getting “out there and doing cool shit.” That might be my new daily goal. As a fellow ‘86er, I could be doing better but at least I never gave myself a nickname like Lady Gaga. Ya can’t shake something like that. stevecozz: Don’t worry…I’ve already paid for...
