Winter Break

I'm going on a winter blog break. I need to regroup, recoup, or re-something to recapture the creativity that I've lost somewhere along the way....... I'll still try to visit. :)

Happy New Year - The DON'T list

....well THAT'S not Tears For Fears! ....But what a wonderful song to ring in the New Year!

I don't have a lot to say regarding the New Year aka 2006, but if I did, I'd have the following advice for myself and everyone else regarding the "DON'T" list:

-Don't eat pork. There's a reason why it's "the OTHER" white meat. I mean, why isn't it THE WHITE MEAT. Obviously it was looked over a time or two. Plus, there's got to be a reason God told the Jews not to eat it. Basically, it's like eating a slobby human. Compare a fat person and a hog, and the only difference is a curly tail. I snort when I laugh... (ha ha oink oink) and I'm not going to eat myself. Would you eat me? That's cannibalism!

-Don't take online tests. If you have OCD you'll end up wondering why you ended up being an Orc instead of Frodo just because you like mud pies better than elf cakes. I'm sorry, but mud pies are SO much better and really I don't mind being an Orc if they get to play in the mud. Besides, if you hang with elves you have to climb trees. I wasn't so great at climbing trees....(begin childhood memory "oh God")....when I was a kid, my cousin, and my sister scaled the branches and forced me into the super tall pine tree behind my grandparent's house. We must have been 40 feet off the ground when my aunt screamed at us to "GET DOWN FROM THERE NOW, boy are you 3 in trouble!" Which was an excellent incentive for us to climb down into her arms, right? Well, I was 3 1/2 years old. I also think I was slow because I just couldn't figure out how to climb down the damn tree. Poor Grandpa had to come out and climb up and get me. Yes, he was disabled at the time. How awful! I feel I may have contributed to his back problem. And, how painful the feeling of my aunts whooopin'! So....that's why you shouldn't take online tests because it will cause you to go off on tangents remembering relatives forcing you to get into trouble.

-Don't leave home without a change of clothes. I'm sitting in a hotel wearing my uniform 8 hours after my flight ended for the day because....I THOUGHT I was going on a 4 hour trip. That trip turned into a 2 day trip. I was already enroute when the change occurred. The other flight attendants give you that "Been there. Done that. Glad it's you and not me" look. Well, now I'm off to wash my skivvs in the bathtub. Sure do hope they dry by noon! You see, since I only have the clothes on my back, and the hotel doesn't offer bathrobes, I'm forced to become NUDE. NUDE, I said (do I make you horny baby?) and remain in my room until my vital garments are once more crisp and clean (crisp?) Hopefully I'll have washed them enough to get the "crisp" out. Oooooo ooooo gross!

and with that ciao for now!

Seriously, wishing everyone a Happy New Year with an optimistic outlook! God Bless you all!
