Happy New Year, everybody!

Happy New Year, everybody!

All in all, I'm quite pleased with how things have turned out for Pointless Side Quest in 2011 and hope to increase my output in 2012. I hope you've enjoyed reading it, and will continue coming back here. I wanted to start this year off on a positive note by thanking some people who have helped this blog in one way or another. Some names have been truncated to protect the innocent:

My friends JT, Kevin, Dave, Peter, Lecester, Cheryl, and Catherine. Especially Lecester, since without him the idea for this blog would most likely never have even occurred to me.

Midnight and Toshi.

All of my other friends, who know who they are.

My family.

Dr. B and the other Kevin.

T and F.

Damon, Jay, and Elena at Boomtron, Dan, Corey, and Nick at Robot Geek, and Sam and Matt at Kuribo's Shoes.

People online who have helped me in one way or another: Jacob, Danny, Jim, Daran, TB, Jeremy, Alfonso, Keisha, the other Peter, and everybody else.

My beloved Unattainable Bar Chick, for her unfailing friendliness, kindness, waitressing and bartending professionalism, willingness to laugh at my stupid jokes, and Velma Dinkley/Lisa Loeb-esque hotness. You were always far nicer to me than you had to be, and were the brightest spot of my week whenever we spoke. I always knew that I would never tell you how I felt about you, but you made me wish I could have. Thank you, and best of luck with everything.

(Readers are encouraged to imagine a voice-over of me saying that while I stand in solemn, dignified silence and a single manly tear rolls down my face like at the end of Metal Gear Solid 3. The resulting mental image will be wildly inaccurate, but I endorse it as the official, canonical version nevertheless.)

And, of course, everyone who takes the time to read Pointless Side Quest or my writing on other sites. I tend to be pretty useless trying to express myself with spoken words when I'm face-to-face with people unless it's with folks I already know well, so being able to do so by writing online is very precious to me, and so is knowing that someone is actually reading it.

Thank you all. 2012 will be Pointless Side Quest's best year yet!
