Having been awakened at 5am by you know what (even after the treatment on Tuesday!), I’ll admit that I’m not exactly in a “festive” mood. But I am up, with time on my hands, and nothing better to do. So I thought I’d throw a little something together to celebrate the start of the New Year. Besides, I’m still a sentimental fool at heart, who just can’t seem to stop believing in a better tomorrow.
Well folks, today is my birthday, and, in honor of my fifty-nine year long failure to assimilate, I’ve decided to celebrate the start of my sixtieth year with the gang from Star Trek: TNG! ;)
I don’t know. Maybe it’s just me. After all, my skills at interpreting the motivations of my fellow man aren’t exactly world renowned. Hell, for all I know, they may find a celebration of fear to be somehow “cathartic”… :roll:
Good grief. I really need to stop falling asleep with the news playing on my TV. With continuing coverage of the potential invasion of the Ukraine by Russia, the ongoing search and recovery efforts after the horrible mudslide in Washington state, and, of course, the never-ending quest to find out what happened to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, it’s no wonder I woke up in such a grumpy mood! >:(
I got a little reminder last night, from the nice people at WordPress, that yesterday marked the 5th anniversary of the date that I ported my little collection of lunatic rants over from where it began on Blogger. As I was in the middle of an attempt to reduce the massive backlog of programs stored on my DVR – while adding 8 1/2 more hours to it at the same time :oops: – I had a lot of time to reflect back on that five years of blogging.
When I was finally exhausted from all the TV watching, while trying to think of something profound to say to mark the occasion at the same time, it occurred to me that it wasn’t really necessary…
I just couldn’t resist these. I hope everyone finds something they like…
Happy New Year Everyone! :D
Another good one, gone way too soon… Rest in peace James.
