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!
I am also looking forward to my wedding. It should be a blast.
Other things, off the top of my head:
-More travel -Batman and Iron Man movies -The Calgary Stampede (my answer every year) -The NFL/NHL playoffs -Running a decent 10k race -The USA federal election -The (possible) Canadian federal election -Three paycheques in February with the leap year -Maybe getting a dog

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.

Yes, I finally have updated the Troll Moment of the Week! This week is brought to you by ;

STONEBOY!: "THIS GOES MESSAGE GOES OUT TO ALL CANADIANS ESPECIALLY MONTREAL WHEREVER THE F#CK THAT IS".
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).
The old IT equipment is us too. Some working, but out of warranty or not fast enough for business systems get sent to auction, but things like old CRT monitors, flat bed scanners, printers etc just gets junked.
