Another year (and decade) has managed to slip through my fingers rather uneventfully. And by uneventfully I mean I didn’t end up dead or worried about dropping the soap. I came. I saw.

I hope everyone else made it safely to the other side as well. Anyone take any road trips? See anything stupid/crazy/awesome on their journeys? Tell us about your holidays in the comments!
