First Post of 2008

How's that for a clever and inspired post title? Sorry, I guess I'm too busy shaking my head in sorrow over Britney's latest escapade to do better. Okay, maybe it's not "sorrow," so much as it is "won't somebody somewhere stage an intervention for that crazy-ass chick already?" Won't someone think of the children?

New Guy made it back to town this week, thank goodness. I was having major withdrawals. He, of course, was so busy enjoying being a full-time dad for a change that he hardly missed me at all. Oh, don't worry...he didn't come out and say so, he's far too polite for that; he pretended he missed me, but I know better. And it's cool.

He brought me back a belated Christmas present, so I know he was thinking of me at least occasionally. It's a Sony Dream Machine for my bedside.

I've become addicted to listening to the classical music radio station while I sleep, thanks to him. Now I can listen to it in beautiful, crystal clear sound. Seriously, that thing gets amazing reception, and the clarity is really something. He did good.

And so life goes on. I don't make New Year's resolutions, so my hope for 2008 is merely that it be a happy, healthy year for me and mine. And you and yours.

And Britney, bless her trailer trash heart. (Funny aside--every time she does anything "newsworthy," New Guy, who is also from Louisiana, just shakes his head and says, "She's from Kentwood," as if that explains it all. Heh.)

I think every area of the country has "that town". The one that somehow is the excuse for being a doofus. As though being raised in THAT town, only minutes from any other town, is so far removed from the rest of the world that you can't possibly know any better. Heh.

I'm glad new guy is back. And I'm glad he's more into his kids than his girlfriend, and I'm glad you acknowledge that is a good thing. :) said...

Happy new year to you! I have so many feelings about Britney and none of them are logical.

Edge said...

I swear by those Sony Dream machines. That's all I buy for alarm clocks. I still have mine from 1988. Reception is probably not quite what you get, but they are dependable. Obviously if I've had mine for almost 20 years.

I have a dream machine, but all we use on it is the alarm and the "white noise" feature.

Money well spent once again.

I don't even know what to say about Britney. I feel sorry for her although if she wanted help she of all people could afford to get it.

Did you hear Dr. Phil met with her in the hospital while she was packing today before she was released? He's apparently going to discuss her situation on his show later this week. Just another reason I don't care too much for him either. All about ratings with him and I don't think he gives a rat's behind about really helping people.

Glad New Guy is back! Happy New Year.

Ooh... I am in the market for a new alarm clock! I'm jealous!!

And Britney... oh, poor, poor Britney.

Was 1980s version of the Sony Dream Machine the white cube-shaped one with the pink and purple and turquoise buttons? If so, I got that for Christmas in junior high and I loved that thing. I think it lasted me until just after college before it finally quit.

3car, yeah, we had one of those towns. (Hulbert. Worst speed trap in the country.)

noelle, I keep trying to figure out why I even care what Britney does. Sigh.

edge, that's good to hear! I look forward to 20 years of beautiful music.

whiskeymarie, all I'm using it for currently is the music. I haven't been able to make the break from my old alarm clock. (It has "weekend cancel." The Dream Machine, lovely as it is, does not.)

sauntering, I was so glad to hear Dr. Phil cancelled his planned "special." What a douchebag.

sass, go get yourself a Dream Machine. Apparently, they're all the rage. :)

stef, how colorful! I actually used the alarm clock (no radio involved, just the alarm) that I received as a high school graduation present until about four years ago. I don't remember what brand it was, but obviously it was built well, since I graduated from high school a million years ago. (Okay, not a million...but closer to 30 than I'd like to think about.)

You, miss, are a delight. But you should definitely write more about your BFF. I mean, come on. With our combined brain power (your half and my half) we are a person. Oh, the humosity of it all.
