Auld Lang Syne

I always spend the last day of the year looking back at the things I’ve done for the year. Today is no exception. And it’s easy to recall what you have done when you have a blog, although these days I seldom blog about personal stuff here. Still, from the way I blog, I can remember roughly what was happening during that period.

It’s amazing how 2009 flew pass so quickly. It doesn’t feel like 365 days at all. Somehow, I felt that the days are passing faster and faster. Is there some sort of inflation going on? It felt like 2008 was just a couple of month back. And here we are, at the last day of the year, counting down to a new year and singing “Auld Lang Syne”. Looking back, I regretted not taking some actions in 2009. Will not let it happen again.

Come to think of it, last New Year Eve was the worst New Year Eve ever in my life. Perhaps it might be a jinx for the rest of the year if you had a bad New Year Eve. Which is why I swear that I’m never ever going to go thru that kind of New Year Eve again. New Year Eve should be spend celebrating, not infront of a computer explaining yourself.

Even if you are alone, a glass of wine is a great companion for celebrating.

It has become a tradition for me to post this song on my last blog entry of the year. Auld Lang Syne is a song usually sang after the New Year countdown. Honestly, I don’t really like this version by Mairi Campbell and Dave Francis when I first heard it. But my impression of this version changed after watching the Sex And The City movie. Perhaps it’s the movie that changed the meaning to this song for me.

Enjoy the last few hours of 2009. Happy New Year and may 2010 be a good year for you.

Mairi Campbell and Dave Francis – Auld Lang Syne

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
For of auld lang syne?

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for of auld lang syne.
We’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

And surely ye’ll be your pint-stoup !
And surely I’ll be mine !
And we’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for of auld lang syne.
We’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

We twa hae run about the braes,
and pou’d the gowans fine ;
But we’ve wander’d mony a weary fit,
sin’ auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for of auld lang syne.
We’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

We twa hae paidl’d in the burn,
frae morning sun till dine ;
But seas between us braid hae roar’d
sin’ auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for of auld lang syne.
We’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.
