Oh yea

Happy new year!  I forgot to put that up here.  (And while I'm here - merry xmas, and happy thanks giving too)

I'm sure a lot of people heard that during new years eve / new years day we had a Blue Moon.  A blue moon (scientifically speaking) is defined as the second full moon in the same calendar month.  Blue moons occur once every 3 or 4 years because the lunar calendar is out of sync (slightly) with the solar calendar months.  So seeing a blue moon does happen once in a blue moon... but the blue moon on new years was very special.  A blue moon on new years eve/day (by my approximate calculations) happens once in 1400 years

If that's not a herald for the awesomeness that 2010 holds, I don't know what is!  I'm particularly excited since 2010 is when I officially start medical school; so I know 2010 is going to be a very special year for me - wonder if it's the same for other people out there?
