Lucy, I'm Home - Happy New Year !

Ok, it's time for New Year's resolutions, mine and yours ! I'm really not in a state of mind nor physical condition to make concrete resolutions, but I'm going to at least make an outline for 2008 and will firm it up as soon as my mind and body decide to work together once again as a team. This phenomenon will hopefully take place within the next 24-48 hours or so. In the interim, I have a mission which is impossible to attain without your assistance (you are just so damned clever with words. Shut up !).


Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to leave me your number one resolution for 2008 in your comments today. As some of you might be in the same physical and mental condition as I, you have the same 24-48 hour rule as I have given myself. Keep in mind that anyone resolving to establish world peace or feed the children will be automatically sent to the Miss Universe pageant (such as) where such frivolous answers are accepted and/or rewarded.

Although I have several resolutions in mind for this year, including timely book keeping for my company, I will give you my number one resolution. I resolve to spend more time this year making sure that I say to my family and friends a simple phrase that is always on my mind but not orally expressed as often as I should. It's a simple phrase and easy to say; I Love you !

Don't be taken aback ! There are many who will never hear those words uttered from me (with the exception of amorous occasions complicated by the intoxicating effects of the world renown poet, J. Walker Black). Rather, it is the simple inner pinings of my serious side and my wish to reinforce my relations with the important people in my life.

So, my little party hats (by the way, check to make sure you're still not wearing yours from last night), leave me your resolution, serious or otherwise. I will be carefully noting same and will reprint them in a future entry (the 24-48 hour rule notwithstanding).

The Pictures: As I prepare this entry, the mere fact that I did not prepare nor research anything remotely resembling pictures does not make me stumble. It is, in fact, a challenge in that, after last evening, I am able to type and/or sit up ! Moreover, now I must "surf" the web, keeping in mind that the word "surf" is not a encouraging word to one who has battled and defeated the infamous surfing legend J.W. Black.

Actually, an "encouraging" word, assuming that the skies are not cloudy, should be "home", id est, "Oh give me a home where the buffalo roam and I'll show you a house full of shit" (Do you actually believe they're reading this caca? Probably, not, but I liked the humor of it). Aha ! I just thought of it ! My Favorite Assholes of 2007 ! Kinda makes ya wanna look, doesn't it?

You are cordially invited to vote for any of these jerks, or a write in a nominee for Asshole of the Year !

My #1 and only resolution is the same year after year....Not to make any!  I can't take the failure (on my part) to successfully complete a year and keep a resolution so the best thing is to just not make any. I just take it one day at a time and do the best I can do each day.  Some hugs, some "I love you's" and some random acts of kindness sprinkled generously thru out the year.   Linda in Washington state
