Happy New Year everyone! Unfortunately for Abe, not so much. The Creepy Chaplain always seems to find his way into Abe’s New Year plans. Well, at least he had someone to kiss at midnight this year. While this certainly would be allowed now under the new Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy, the Chaplain’s concerns of fraternization are valid. I don’t mean to pick on Chaplains specifically, but I couldn’t resist the opportunity to bring the Creepy Chaplain back for this year’s New Year strip. There might even be a sequel.

I’m still in Oregon, I spent the New Year drinking with some good friends in Corvallis. Responsibly, of course.

Hopefully you all did the same–and for the sake of your command’s sanities, hopefully the DUI’s and other acronymic crimes were kept to a minimum.

On a random note, did anyone else see all the guys in dress blues at the NYE stuff on TV?

2012 was a pretty crazy year for me personally, and for a lot of the world as well. While I (very thankfully) didn’t deal with any natural disasters or anything so horrific, I went through a lot of personal issues that really held me back professionally. Things are really looking up though, I’m optimistic that 2013 will be a great year, I hope you all are too.

After all, it’s not the end of the world.
