Ah, and here we are at the end of 2005. If there's one thing I'm not looking forward to in the next couple days, it's that obligatory "see ya next year!" guy. You know who I'm talking about, right? You're in the office or out at a bar and its right before New Years Eve. Some guy you know or kinda know or maybe wish you didn't know, comes up to you as you're leaving, pats you on the back, and (with a huge "check out what I'm about to say grin") goes, "Hey man, see ya next year!"
He then searches the eyes of the people you're standing with for some kind of glorious approval - as if that was the coolest thing anyone has ever said. There's this weird kind of awkward "okay, so should we just leave now?" pause, followed by some long drawn out description of the phrase. "See, technically, when I see you next it'll be 2006. So, in theory, when I say "see ya next year, " it's, um, really next year." Get it? I'm cool, right? You people like me now, right?
There's still a few trailers left in 2005, so while you anxiously text-message every one of your friends, searching for those perfect New Years Eve plans (because everyone knows it's the most important night of the year), feel free to stop by Cinematical and check out the last of 2005 on this week's Trailer Park...
Oh, and don't be that guy.
