January 04 2011
Wow! It’s all like 2011 and stuff– which is kinda weird but whatever. I sort of procrastinated on my New Years Resolutions which maybe isn’t the best way to start the year. Also I posted something yesterday that said I would post something yesterday– and then I didn’t– so I kind of dropped the ball first thing. But hey! I’m counting that as my official my ‘Ball Drop‘! Starting the new year round these parts! 5…4… 3… 2… 1!
Anyway, 2011 looks like a weird year anyway so why not start it off sort of off-beat? I mean just look at it! 2011… uch.
‘2-0-1-1’? It’s already got an image problem! It doesn’t even look like an actual year! It just looks like a new model of Audi or something! The only thing it has going for it is 11/11/11! And that’s not til November!
And now that we’re officially are in the decade of the… tens? That sucks too because we all know there’s nothing to name this decade just like the nameless last decade. We got nuttin official until the 20’s (twenties)! Which I’m sure will be also called ‘The Roaring 20’s’ (but the roar will probably be mutated giant polar bears who are going to trojan horse attack us via some hollowed up iceberg. And the last thing most of us will see will be some green monster polar bears roaring bloody teeth. Roar. The end).
Hey! Just for FYI-ing here’s ‘Best of the 2010‘ stuff for me just so you know where I stood on stuff last year…
– Best Movie: Intervention (it was the only one that I saw 2x in the theater so that’s that)
– Best TV Show: Breaking Bad (if this show was meth my teeth would be all rotted out)
– Best Album: Kanye West (I’ve been ipod looping it for months now. Love it. Can’t help it..)
– Best Coffay: Guatemala SHB Huixoc (Mmmm! Goddamn, Jimmie! This is some serious gourmet shit!)
– Best Reality Show: Jerseylicious (friggin girls fighting in the Sonic parking lot.)
– Best Talk Show: Howard Stern on Sirius (been listening since like 1986 and ain’t stopping never)
– Best Product: EARBUDi Clips (they clip on my iPhone headphones to hold em in my ears. use em everyday)
– Best Dog Treat: Apparently rawhide Flossies (I cut them in half because they’re expensive)
I guess I could go on and on talking about what I like and don’t like but I think that’s pretty much all that stands out in my head right now.
And I’m guessing nobody cares anyway…
Anyway, back to 2011. I have only one New Year’s Resolution!
Here’s the story, years ago I was standing on line at a supermarket and there was a paperback book called ‘The Secret of Success’ staring out of me. I looked at the cover and it said something like, ‘Inside this book you will find one 3-word sentence that will guarantee you will be successful!’ So I’m like frantically flipping through as the line is moving along trying to find the 3-word sentence. Of course, there’s a bunch of other sentences in there about hard work or believing in yourself or whatever. But buried in there I find the 3-word sentence.
It’s ‘Keep your word.’
So that’s my resolution. If I announce I’m gonna exercise (in my head or otherwise) or hit a deadline for something or be better about this and that or not jerk around friends or believe in myself about something– this year I plan to keep my word– and apply that to everything. If I don’t plan on doing something– I simply won’t say it. So there’s that.
Anyway, what’s up with this website?
If you’re reading this right now you probably have known me for a while. It’s hard to believe that in this June will be the ten year anniversary of me being laid-off in the first place! That’s a little weird, huh? But I’m thinking this year will actually be way different. I’m feeling one of the ‘secret projects’ I’ve been talking about for years will finally stick and something will rise off the ground. So there’s that.
I’m also predicting I’m going to type too much about my dopey dog. I’ll do as many cartoons as I can. I’ll take lots of pictures. Write mov-ay reviews. Oh! And also I’ll finally start typing about what it’s like to be in a relationship with me! I’ve been a bit squirrely in the past about girl stuff. So I’m gonna write about it now. Not sure if the gf will be all that thrilled about this announcement but I simply have to blab. So there’s that too…
If you’re reading this I want to thank you for still being there. And showing up here. I know the website sort of dipped last year with the serious lack of toonages and type-y. I’m did my best. But this year I’m going to better that best. I know this would be a great time to really get the blue-robed wonder off the couch and I apologize to anyone unemployed who wants new toonage. You haven’t seen the last of those guys. I’m just doing what I need to do to keep all my balls in the air… (‘Uh huh huh balls in the air’).
Thank you for your patience with me.
Bestest of good vibes to you for a great 2011. I’ll be here…
PS. If you have comments, suggestions or complaints. Please feel free to let me know. More of this or less of that etc…
