Can you tell I'm a wee bit excited?
I stayed up reading the Pretty Little Liars books (second season coming out soon, eek!) and watching old X-Files and that Babies movie (adorable, by the way) and reading blogs. And now... it's 2011.
Wow. That looks so weird. 2-0-1-1. Just when I had stopped writing "2009" on the top of my school papers, 2011 comes in. Sigh.
I love new years almost as much as I love new schools. (Having moved around a lot in my life I have a bit too much experience with new schools...) It's a new start. A chance to reinvent yourself. A chance to be even better than the old you, or perhaps to let the old you shine a little more.
The official color for 2011 is honeysuckle — which happens to be a favorite color of mine. Grey and crimson are tied with grey and honeysuckle as far as color schemes go — anticipate the next HorseFeathers look to be honeysuckle and grey. Love. (Honeysuckle, by the way, is a warm pink... see the color of "2011" in the graphic at the end of this post.) Don't worry — not too much will be changed for the next look. The crimson shall become pink, is all, and maybe a few photo changes.
But that's all in the future... and speaking of the future, you know how there were all those hilarious, failed predictions of what would happen in 2000? Well, I looked for some for 2010 but everyone seemed too wary. Except one site that spoke in Scientific Gibberish about climate change models from 1980. Apparently it's funny if you're a scientist.
My predictions for 2011:
- The robot vacuum cleaner people will expand into cooking robots, dusting robots, and mopping robots.
- Harry Potter 7, Part II will be a blockbuster but not actually very good.
- There will be the release of a road-safe hovercar but it will only work in big cities.
What are your predictions? Link up in your comment!
So happy 2011, everyone, and have a lovely new year. :)
