Beat It, 2007, You're Blocking the View

Here it is December 31st, 2007, and time once more to pretend that the preceeding 364 days were actually worth the daylight by running down the all the important events conveniently grouped by calendar month.
What makes you think that I've got a better idea?
January: New Speaker of the House Nancy Peolsi promises an end to double digit approval ratings.
February: Dixie Chicks win 5 Grammys, vow never to leave Los Angeles again.
April: New Jersey Governor Corzine discovers the purpose of seat belts. Don Imus discovers the purpose of the seven second delay. We all become Hokies.
May: The hurricanes are coming! The hurricanes are coming!
June: Scientists confirm that Barry Bonds supplied steriods to pygmy pandas so that they too could become Giants.
August: While everyone else is busy on vacation, Russia, Canada, and Denmark all "accidently" invade Greenland - Israel Blamed.
September: Larry Craig resigns Senate to take wide-stance position as restroom attendant.
November: Belgians explore dissolving their country in favor of forming a unified doormat with France and the Netherlands.
December: The 2007 Junior Eurovision Song Contest CD goes on sale, and immediately wins 5 Grammys.
All in all, I'd say that if you don't happen to be a fan of the WORLD CHAMPION Boston Red Sox, then your year was probably as forgetable as this post. Which, dude, is like, epic.
That's okay, folks. You see, I've got it on good authority that 2008 is going to be a WHOLE lot better. Promise.

Happy New Year.

Once upon an evening weary
Surfing the Internet, bleak and squirrely
I chanced to find the blog
And thought I would stop to say, "Hello!"

2007 wasn't the worst year of my life, but it sure wasn't the best, by far. I'd like to have a few more good years before getting so feeble I can't enjoy them and then taking the big dirt nap, so here's to 2008!

Happy New Year, spr spd rdr!

Here's a toast to better days and happy endings! Clink!

-Don Brouhaha, haha?

LOL, spd. Great caption.

Happy New Year, HH rdrs. I hope the year ahead is filled with good health, warm love, and unexpected opportunities for each of you.

Let's get this party started!

The best thing about 2007 may well turn out to be this post :p Thanks - I needed a good laugh!

It was a very strange year for me. A lot of big changes in my life. As much as I've enjoyed traveling and meeting new people, I am thankful that some things have not changed.

Old friends, for instance. It's not as though I didn't know this before, but you guys are the best. Though I missed New Year's this year, there must be something to that 'auld lang syne' business, after all.

Cheers :)

Oh for Pete's sake.

I expected you to have a post up about the big Kerry endorsement of Obama. These are exciting times, my friends....

Historic, really. You cannot count on anyone, anymore.

Not only that, but he is ignoring his buddies!

*So* rude!!! :) How long will it be until we find out HH's in the pay of the Obama campaign? ...and the tawdry revelations just keep a-comin'.

I tell you, Don, I just don't know how much longer I can take it. I am down to my last illusion.

Well it's still January which means I can still wish you all a happy 2008 without being monumentally lame. Hope it meets you all with health & happinessQ and Q's.

Cassandra said...

Happy 2008, Pooke :)
