I usually don't frequent this forum much, but I'd thought I'd list a few things that I'm excited for in 2008.

- Cloverfield.

- The Moment of Truth (US - although Mark L Walberg seems like a huge downgrade from Springer.)

- Pitchers and Catchers (like every year)

- A new Metallica album.

- Iron Man.

- The return of Matt Hardy.

- One extra day.

Edit: - Grammar lessons.

Edit Edit: - Oh yeah, and the eight episodes of Lost we get. Duh.

My wedding, if all goes well. It's not going to be a big affair or anything, but, still, it doesn't get much more important than that.

Getting a Democrat back in the White House, if all goes well. (I know, they wouldn't actually take power until 09, but you know what I mean.)

New stuff at work--IAGW I'm going to be training new people starting soon; it's a farily big deal and I'll be flying to Dallas to get certified to do that. Combine that with pay increases I got this year (due to a promotion and due to overall changes in the company's pay system) and I should be making fairly decent money in the new year--before this year I really wasn't doing well.

Wow, thanks for asking this question, SSS--it really does look like there's a lot of reason for me to look forward to this new year!

Although my bank account may not agree, I would have to say my daughter starting college. Makes me feel older thinking about it.

My last child goes away to college this year.

I am sort of expecting my girl to get engaged this year

I have a good chance of working in Asia for a few months

I am pumped for a week in Atlanta this summer, and one more year of summer camp

on the down side

My father in law, mother in law and step mother are rather sick and my Dad, who seems very well, is over 80

We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

Amen! We don't even have television anymore and we live in a state that's effectively being boycotted by most of the major candidates and I'm still sick of political ads.

Some other important things that I expect will happen this year:
I'll either be a full time teacher or I'll be in an entirely new career.
Taking over as the head coach of a High School baseball team.
Hopefully getting both knees scoped.
The opportunity to really study and then teach the Pastoral Epistles.

You are that pumped already for the commencement of the 2012 Presidential race? Actually, that will start about 3:46 AM the day after the '08 election.

Very funny. But at least by 2012 some of these candidates may be too old to run.

Dark Knight, Iron Man, Galactica, Lost, and hopefully the return of The Office (and an end to the writers strike).

Uh, and world peace?

Buying permanent storage solutions. Sorting through all of the totes we've been storing/rummaging through for the past 4 years. Finishing the south porch, and repairing all the storm damage. Ordering seeds and plants for our garden, planning out the garden, and planting it.

Kidbrooklyn: "Please god tell me that you're making fun of the douche who started this thread...

Wait, no he isn't. He's serious. I hadn't read his previous brilliance before. I apologize" (in reference to a reply by James1978).
