Happy New Year…Happy 2012

Happy New Year…

Happy 2012


My moment of Zen…



“Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work: you don’t give up.”

My Goals for 2012


1) Not use chloroform as much as 2011

2) Find a Highway without construction or orange barrels

3) Secede from the Union

4) Learn how to sleep while driving

5) Finish building my transporter…anybody have extra dilithium crystals?

6) Get a really cool vanity plate like the super cool people in Virginia

7) Discover 5 new ways to use duct tape

8) Fine people who cross the street without looking and expect traffic to stop

9) Ignore my family more…ok, a little

10) Schedule some time eating bon bons & getting manicures: isn’t  that what girls are supposed to do?

11) Convince politicians to take a pay cut

12) Figure out why drivers sit in the left hand lanes

13) Take my humor to new heights and lower levels…

14) Discover a cure for complete stupidity & sheep complex

15)Locate the crazy gene (my family has the patent on) on our DNA

16) Figure out that if the Mayans were soooo smart, how come they didn’t know what year they would no longer exist…part of sheep complex.


I invite you to add to my list…


2012:  Bring it.









  1. A quote that you may remember: “You are awesome!”
