Christmas eve 2012 I was asked to look at some Excel VBA code I had written many years previously. This comment was at the top of the code:

'''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''
' SendTrades

' ==================
' Date : 24/12/2002 - MERRY BASTARD CHRISTMAS!
' Author : Chris Shepherd
' Description : Send trades to Bloomberg
''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''

10 years later i was back doing the same thing. This led to my coding standard being "keep it simple enough to be able to understand it on Christmas Eve with a terrible hangover".
