life after death

i would like to point out that i am not hungover today. i am however somewhat disbelieving that both 2000 and 2001 are now history. they have been part of a projected mythical future for as long as i can remember and it doesn't seem right to consign them to being over and done with. but then in that mythical way they are not yet over and in fact have not even begun so perhaps we can have our 2000 and 2001 and eat them too for as long as i have yet to grow up 2000 will not have happened and until we run into certain trippy phenomena in outer space 2001 will not have happened. that historically both years have come and gone is trivial i think compared to the fantastic which has yet to arrive and which will probably always seem so at least till our generation dies out.
