Good-bye 2010!

It's New Year's Eve!


I must admit, I'm glad to see 2010 end. All and all it has been a CRAPtastic year for me, one I don't care to repeat.

Overall, I know I had positives happen, but the overwhelming negatives left such a pall that they are the only parts of the year I remember.

More than anything,2010 hammered home the point that my life can be changed in an instant. Forever altered (usually for the worst) in one split second.

I hope and pray for no more such life altering moments in the coming year. I want my life to change in a positive direction. I've had enough negative to last me for the rest of my life!

All right, no more whining from me. HAPPY HAPPY NEW YEAR to all!

Merry Merry!

Happy Boxing Day!

I sincerely hope that all of you who pass through this little corner of cyber-space had a wonderful holiday.

May 2011 be a bright and prosperous year for all of us!

This year my most unique (and therefore my favorite) present came from my BFF Whit. Since she now resides on the East Coast and I remain here on the West, her present came via the good old US Postal Service, but I dutifully waited until yesterday to open it.

I was quite perplexed as to why she would send me a can of Spam and several common household items like mouthwash, chewing gum, and Cottonelle wipes. But then I read the letter, which I followed instructions and opened last. Here's what I found:

Cruise Ship Survival Kit

How to survive your next "Luxury" voyage on the high seas

This kit includes a variety of items to help anyone survive an emergency on the high seas! Keep it with you at all times (or at least under your fancy bed) to provide security and comfort in any circumstance.


Spam -- This delicacy can be consumed any number of ways and is considered a delicacy by many. Fried, baked, grilled or tartare, Spam will fill the empty place inside you.

Ritz Crackers -- The word Ritz says it all! What better tableau could your Spam ask for?!

Blueberry Toaster Pastries -- Not just for breakfast anymore! These delicious fruit-filled tartlets are a hand-held joy, and as everyone knows, buleberries are packed with antioxidants. Healthy and scrumptious -- what more could you ask for in such a small package?

Crest Mouthwash -- Water may be at a premium when the power goes down. You can't just dip some out of the ocean! For that just-brushed feeling without the brush, Crest is the way to go!

WinterFresh Chewing Gum -- Not only does it freshen your breath, it helps keep your mouth from drying out when liquid refreshment is wanting.

GermBlaster Hand Sanitizer -- Bathing may not be possible unless you jump in the pool, and it will probably be full of other dirty people! "Nuff said...

Washcloth -- If you DO jump in the pool, you will need something to scrub your happy skin with!

and finally...

Cottonelle -- Must I spell it out for you???

Gotta admit, I'm still laughing as I retyped this! THANX WHIT! You made my day!

What about you? Did you receive a funny and/or unique present? Please share with Aunty!

Name That Christmas Carol

Seasons Greetings!

I have a post up today on Romance Bandits as part of our 12 Bandita Days of Christmas. (Just click on the title of this post to go there.)

I've taken the titles of some familiar Christmas carols and rewritten them in bureaucratic style!

Here are a few more just for fun:

  • The Christmas preceding all others
  • Monarchical triad
  • Listen, the celestial messengers produce harmonious sounds
  • Expectation of arrival to populated area by mythical, masculine perennial gift-giver
  • The quadruped with the vermilion proboscis
Hope you are having a wonderful holiday season!

Have you finished your shopping?

Done your decorating?

Care to help Aunty with hers?!?!
