New Year, New Post

Dear New Year,
I don't like to be the type to complain, but let me start out by saying you could have made a better first impression. I am very well aware that there are so many expectations from people all over the world, but really, I didn't bother you by making any predictions, any resolutions and hell, I didn't even bat an eye to the departure of last year.
This being said, I have high hopes that you can improve. Seriously? You can only get better from where you started out with me. Let's try to start fresh and make ammends and try to make this year even better than the previous few. I promise to take better care of myself and my loved ones, and I'll try to only use all of your time for good and prosperous activities. I'm not going to bribe you, I'm just saying that you could be a lot kinder in the days to come.
I don't mean this as a threat but if it doesn't seem to be improving soon I'm going to switch to the Chinese New Year and never look back.
Think about it.
Sincerely,
blackpetunia

yeah....ours started off with a bang. Ted got laid off last week. I figure it can only get better than that, right? It better. I say use the Mayan calendar....or wait til Feb for the Chinese one.

I don't know about that Mayan one, it ends in 2012.....
I'm sorry to hear about Ted's job/lack of. That really sucks! Yes, I believe it can only get better, it has to. Hope you're doing ok?

Ted said...

AAAAWWWW, crap-o!! Reading this post, I wanted to be the one to tell her!! Now the post I'm trying to work on won't have the same "ooomph"!

Though, if I ever manage to get a post up again... THAT will be the real shocker.

Per my resolution (pre-layoff, ironically enough) to embrace my inner type-A alpha male, I intend violate 2007 into submission - you should join me!

(Ohhh, that's hot.)

This and That said...

yeah....Ted is going to be more 'Alpha male' and I am going to stop acting as if I have a penis.

sorry, I mentioned the layoff Ted before you got a chance to...but don't even think that that is an excuse to not write that blog entry about the whole experience. Just wait til after the severance pkg to name names...since they have you sign some BS saying you can't discuss the company. haha. what a joke.

(gee....does anyone recommend an internet/phone/TV service to replace my COMCASTic deal I have now?)

We pretty much are limited Charter around these parts. I have Speakeasy for internet, and they're great.

T&T is right, now you have less excuse than ever to not post. I expect to see a new one at least every other day about all the coffee shops you're frequenting in your layed-off state.
So what's up with that anyhow? They work your ass off for the last few months and then they drop you?

You're too funny.. but you're so right on. It can only get better from here. Doesn't sound like many people kicked it off with a bang, not a good bang anyhow. I think I'm getting all my sick days out of the way early so I can be well the rest of the year. We can apply that to all of us... get all the bad crap over and enjoy the rest.

i agree.
this years started out sucking donkey butt.
it's still not going too smoothly, but i'm trying my damndest to make it better.

i am gently trying to mold this year into a good one -

but maybe i'll end up ripping the ears off of it while trying to make it drink the water i lead it to....


did that even make sense?

Blackpetunia said...

I think it'd make more sense on an iPhone.....

It will get better, I have an offer it can't refuse.

offer? what offer?

This and That said...

yeah, what offer...do share? How are the Iceland plans coming btw?

Denny said...

Did i hear someone say they had an offer ?

Blackpetunia said...

Ok, maybe there is an offer, not Dim Sum, and not a new pair of shoes, but maybe a coffee house I can call my own.

Denny said...

well if its not dim sum or shoes that has to be the very next best thing go amber go amber go amber woot woot !!
