As I may have mentioned once or twice in the past I really can't be arsed with Hogmanay and Ne'erday. All that traipsing about the streets in the freezing cold when sensible people are tucked up in their beds in the land of nod, wishing "Happy New Year" to people you wouldn't ordinarily talk to, all the pish with coal, black bun and the like. All these things just seem to reinforce the view that we are a parochial country always looking back and wrapping everything up in bagpipes and tartan. You hear people say "nobody does New Year like us" when what they mean is nobody does public drunkenness and mawkish sentimentality quite like the Scots.
Here endeth the rant, it is Hogmanay after all.
I would just like to thank everybody who has lingered around the kitchen table over the past twelve months, whether to just download the tracks or occasionally read the nonsense that I type or leave a comment. It is all appreciated. I wish you all a better 2013 than 2012, which I mean most sincerely and hope that whatever you do tonight and tomorrow you have a great time.
Here is one of my favourite Blondie songs, for no other reason than it was in my head earlier on.
Blondie - Dreaming
