Looking Back On 2009

Today is New Year’s Eve, 2009.

As I thought about the past year for this blog entry, I had originally thought, “Not much has happened this year; what do I have to write about? What did I do that bears reflection on the past year?”

Looking back through the last year revealed nothing earth-shattering. I did not achieve fame nor fortune. NBC did not announce that I would take over for Conan O’Brien on The Tonight Show. I didn’t get a call from Caroline’s asking me to headline for a week in New York City. It was a fairly slow year for comedy. It was a fairly slow year for blogging.

But, things did happen. I made strides. I made progress; and 2009 provided enough to write about that made it worthwhile.

So in tribute to the old year and the coming new year, here’s a look behind the time that was 2009 and some assorted “old” and “new” related blog entries.

We got a new President

I lost an old job

I reveal 25 new things about myself

I try a new feature-style blog entry

A new Amway-related controversy

I quit an old job

A new blog interviews me

A new roadside shop opens up

I celebrate 5 old years

My wife starts a new blog

I say Good-bye to an old journalist

I celebrate when old heroes land on a new moon

I got a new job

SuperDu becomes Super New

A new addition to “Links I Like”

Christmas thoughts about my “ole” man

It appears that enough happened in the old year to make me look forward to the new year. I guess I’ll get started on that list of new resolutions.
