Another year over, and a new one just begun. It's getting to be a habit.

So, a short (at least by my standards) summary of 2009:
2009 )
So, to summarise: it's been a pretty rough year with deaths and layoffs and things like that, but it could have been much, much worse.

Best wishes for 2010, everyone, and thanks for making 2009 a decent year against all odds!

Briefly:

* I have come to enjoy travelling by bus, something I used to really dislike. At least it's fun in the summertime when you can see the bloody landscape.
* Spent 17 hours in the excellent company of [livejournal.com profile] egghunter. We talked for quite a few of those hours.
* Depeche Mode were good, but I liked the Touring the Angel tour better. I saw the whole show from waaaaay up in the stalls; I'll probably get a better live experience if I watch the tour DVD if and when it's released. (Cut for concert spoilers ))
* Two museums today: Nationalmuseet and the ruins under Christiansborg palace. And lots of walking.

Tomorrow: Øresundsakvariet in Elsinore and then back to Sweden, eventually ending up in Värnamo. (Planning the exact route now.) Now I will take a quick shower to wash off the sweat and then I'll probably take an evening walk. Maybe to Tivoli (closes at 23)...

I've packed my bags, I've paid my bills, I've spent hours filling in my hour report for June. Now, I can go on holiday with a reasonably clean conscience.

So tomorrow afternoon, I face the [livejournal.com profile] egghunter. Later in the week, I will visit [livejournal.com profile] thette and [livejournal.com profile] kjn.

This is going to be great. I hope.

[livejournal.com profile] tuwr and I have just taken a few hours off from work to visit [livejournal.com profile] darnia, M, and their two-days-old baby. Tiny, dark-haired and very cute.

Happy birthday, [livejournal.com profile] darnia, and good luck!

(And now: back to work.)
