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.
I’m lucky. By now, all my friends and family have a pretty good idea of what I’d think of a New Years Eve party invitation… But it occurs to me that some of you may not have your loved ones so well trained. Well your luck is about to change my friends, because John Oliver has just the advice you need! 😉
Here’s hoping the New Year will bring far less to depress us, and far more to make us smile. Of course if that doesn’t work out, you can always do what I do: Keep looking up! 😀
I saw this on yesterday’s CBS News Sunday Morning. It’s a bit on the long side, but it’s one of the best presentations of it’s kind I’ve ever seen. I defy anyone to watch it without shedding at least a few tears…
You know, with all the talk about robots, and drones, and guys falling in love with their PCs 😯 these days, it’s good to know some folks are actually taking preparing their kids for the future seriously… 😉
Still, they’ve gotta get that kid some shades! 😆
Happy Freakin New Year!
She comes out of the sun in a silk dress
running like a watercolour in the rain
Don’t bother asking for explanations
She’ll just tell you that she came
In the year of the cat…
And so we’re told this is the golden age
And gold is the reason for the wars we wage
Though I want to be with you
Be with you night and day
On New Year’s Day
I just couldn’t resist these. I hope everyone finds something they like…
Happy New Year Everyone! 😀
The title to this post is, of course, in reference to Abbott & Costello’s famous Who’s On First comedy sketch – something, oddly enough, I think of whenever I hear the term Third World. I mean, who is it, exactly, that’s arrogant enough to think they can decide who lives in what world?
Oh wait… I think I know… Well, we do love a little whine with our cheese, don’t we? 😳
Here’s another humorous attempt at helping y’all “keep it real” with those New Year’s Resolutions…
Starting with a few thoughts from Adam Davis on BuzzFeed… And finishing with a few “insightful” bits tossed in for good measure…
