As my last words to you this year, I will, in fact, copy someone else's words. This quote pretty well sums up the kind of year I've had:
"Yes," said Dirk, "completely and utterly impossible."
"Luckily," he went on, "you have come to exactly the right place with your very interesting problem, for there is no such word as 'impossible' in my dictionary. In fact," he added, brandishing the abused book, "everything between 'herring' and 'marmelade' appears to be missing. Thank you, Miss Pearce, you have once again rendered me sterling service, for which I thank you and will, in the event of a successful outcome to this endeavor, even attempt to pay you. In the meantime we have much to think on, and I leave the office in your very capable hands."
