Retrospective

Posted on Thursday, December 31st, 2009

Dave!It's the easiest blog post of the year, when I get to re-visit all my entries for the past 365 days and see just how pointless and futile my life really is! Much like last year, a lot of my time was spent traveling. I racked up 164,000 air miles on seven airlines. Unlike last year, I had only minimal flight delays and cancellations, which was a pleasant surprise.

And now the traditional random Blogography snippets of crap from the year that was 2009...

Goofed around at SeaWorld with mah Hilly-Sue in San Diego, where we rode the Buckets of Death, learned to BELIEVE, and joined the cult of Shamu the whale...

    What a year! Glad I was a small part of it.

  2. Hilly says:

    Happy New Year, Davey-Joe!

    I hope 2010 treats you kindly and that your year is fucking amazing, honestly. I’m grateful that you were in my life (psychically) so much this last year because my time spent with you is always time that I am happy.

    Oh geez, I’m all cheesy and sappy tonight but you know, I love you more than my luggage. And my cupcakes.

  3. B.E. Earl says:

    OK, I’ve lost a few pounds since April. You believe me, right? ;)

    2009 was awesome because I got to meet you! And Poopy…and Dawg…and Robin…and Cissa…and Libragirl…and…

  4. martymankins says:

    Goddamn… that was one filled year of goodness.

    This year, I need to make sure I include Dave Lake City 3 (Depeche Mode) in my year end wrap up. I remember what happened last year when I left out Dave Lake City and Dave Lake City 2 blogger events.

  5. Poppy says:

    I know it makes me a really huge dork, but I don’t care. That photo of me, Dawg, and Earl is one of my FAVORITES. And fondest memories of you up on a chair getting a fake birthday cheer was AWESOME! :)

    Looking forward to seeing you in 2010!!!!

  6. Wade says:

    Happy New Year Dave! Thank you for sharing your adventures.

  7. Lisa says:

    You pack a lot into a year! I’m glad I got to hang out with you this year. Going to Orlando and finally meeting everyone was one of the highlights of my year!

  8. Etienne says:

    164,000 miles!!? Holy Guacamole, Dave-man! That’s six and a half times around the planet, dude. I’m certainly glad one of your stops was here. Thanks for droppin’ by. Come back any time. Oh, and BTW –
    Happy New Year!

  9. Michelle M. says:

    What a year! Aren’t you exhausted?
    I hope 2010 holds as many adventures for you, Lil’ Dave and Bad Monkey.

  10. karla says:

    Have a very happy New year, Dave, and don’t let the rat bastards get you down. Hope to see you sometime in the year….let’s meet at the Depeche Mode bar in Tallinn!!!!!!

  11. Iron Fist says:

    I vote that in 2010 we continue this trend of seeing movies based on comic books together.

    Good times with you this year, my friend. Here’s to the New Year!

  12. carlos m. hernandez says:

    Happy New Year, Dave!

    And thanks for another entertaining year of posts.

    When’s Davelouis 2?

    Happy New Year, Dave!!! Hope it’s even better than the last…

  15. How many more Hard Rock’s before you’ve visited them all, Dave? It can’t be that many. And do you really have iPod wallpaper? I’ve been away too long.
