I'm thinking of going to Boston's New Year's Eve celebrations on Thurs. Whooo, last day of the decade, although they say "officially" the last day is 2010 New Year's eve, but I'm not sure who that official is. Some things I kind of want to check out are Otis House Museum, Urban Dance, and Bhangra dance. I'm kind of disappointed there is not more restaurant discounts, though.
Krugman wrote a column about how this decade sucked economically. China did well, though, but maybe their time will come later.
