If you feel like New Years Eve celebration is not for you, you might take this opportunity to learn about Monads. I have not find a single explanation thus far that makes sense. Even Doug Crockford seems to struggle with explaining them or more exactly, it kind of ended up into a "so what" moment for me.
@jdubray I had the same feelings about monads, but then I tried to think about them without the "fuss", and in the end they're not so hard to grasp.. It was an article that shed enough light for my "aha" moment, but now I can't remember WHICH one :P
