2009 is almost upon us people.
Lord willing, I'll be 36 on my born day this year.
Only 4 more years to the big 4-oh; a fact that is NOT lost on your intrepid author.
While I've never been a person who's been able to keep a resolution, I will say that we're not getting any younger and it's high time (if you haven't already) to, as Katt Williams says, "get in touch with your star player."
