It's just so sad to see all these last-minute obituaries that most of the annual slideshows don't include. Pele and the Pope complete another classic "in threes" coming within three days of each other. May they and everyone else who passed on this past year have even better resolutions someplace else that would be a good lesson for us.

My earliest memories of The Pointer Sister's song "I'm So Excited" (which Anita Pointer sang lead on) come from 1991 from a cassette mixtape (which included that song) for warm-up exercises in PE.

Take me back to December 31, 2022

Let's go back to the 2020s.

The date is December 31, 2022, and it's a Saturday. Babies who are born today will have the star sign Capricorn. The work week is over and Saturday has finally come, so people are spending time with their kids, going to bars, shopping, playing video games, and watching sports.

It's New Year's Eve, and everyone is wondering what the year 2023 will bring. In America, the song "All I Want for Christmas Is You" by Mariah Carey is at the top of the singles charts, while "Food Aid" by LadBaby is the number-one song in the UK. Joe Biden is the President of the United States, and the movie Avatar: The Way of Water is at the top of the box office.

Rishi Sunak is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. On television, people are watching popular shows such as "Grey's Anatomy". If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Gianluca Vialli, Lisa Marie Presley, Lance Reddick, and Jerry Springer would all still be alive.

Children are playing with toys such as the Xbox Series X and the PlayStation 5.
