Time wand

2009 certainly had a go at me.
I wish... that my future makes it possible to go back to 2009 and make things right again. And I certainly wish that no such time interventions will be wanted for 2010.
So bring it on, 2010.

Isn't it rich?
Isn't it queer?
Losing my timing this late
In my career?
And where are the clowns?
There ought to be clowns.
Well, maybe next year.

These lines, and above video, are from Lorez Alexandria's take on Send In The Clowns (1977), a jazz standard written by Stephen Sondheim for the 1973 musical A Little Night Music. For complete lyrics (they are excellent) press here.
