New Year's Eve Musings

Published:

I suppose I'm glad this year is over 'cause it's been hairy to say the least.  I understand from Glynnis McCants it had something to do with my numbers and 2005 and I should have had popcorn and just watched it all like a movie and not tried to control anything at all.  Same numbers turns out as 1969 which was another totally huge fiasco.  So, I know I should be grateful etc. 

A part of me wants to dress up tonight in this coat from the 30's. It was my Mom's and I only wore it once so far.  It is the thickest, most plush black velvet I ever saw and it's full length.  Plus, I want to wear all the guady huge fake diamonds and make-up and just get out their and tear up the town tonight. . . well, my neighborhood anyway. But, I'm planning to make this traditional southern dish, Hoppin' John with rice, bacon, onions and black eyed peas  plus,  some salmon tacos. Then if anyone shows up great.  If not, then fine.  I'll work on my mission statement for 006.

I wish a man would show up 'cause I need a few things done around here. Like stand on the step stool and change a light bulb. And like, change the battery in my smoke alarm, 'cause I can't get it apart. And then stay and eat and tell me how delishous it all is, lol.  And stay and tell me how beautiful I look, and stay and help me ring in the new year with a bang! LOL.  But the few I picture are scattered all over the country: New Mexico, Montana, and Texas.

I see they are playing The God Father tonight on TBS. I've heard it said a man can learn everything he needs to know from that movie. Well,  I feel the same way about Sex in the City.  I never thought I would want to look at anything with a title like that. Then I saw it once and I was hooked.  It's really really hard however to get a guy to watch it, LOL.

The other day a young man about 25 was reading a book at the bus stop.  I asked what it was.  We started talking books and he said he wouldn't mind seeing my shelves! A couple of old fat bald guys recently contacted me via my personal ad.  What is this, more jokes from the universe?  The ones  hitting on me are always too young or too old!!!

The other day I was at the Stop 'n Rob and I said to the clerk (19 from Pakistan?) "it's cold outside".  He says to me, "are you busy?" What the hell did that mean? Was he saying I was a hooker? (I wish) LOL. Sheesh, I don't get no respect. . . it ain't easy bein' me!!!!

I just hope I'm learning some lessons here on this planet this time.  I'm afraid of not getting it and having to repeat the same senarios in the next life!! Prolly tonight I will stay home and stay outa trouble. . .

Ciao and blessings & happy new year to all out there in cyber space!  TA

Hi TA:
Probably should have put it here instead of on that 'bronze the tickets you steel' thread, the thing about Penguin Island. Book. Might be by d'anatole. Likely is. Your poem reminded me of it.

Hope you get those lightbulbs changed and smoke alarm battries changed. In fact I hope the guy who does it gives you some respect.

Thanks for tagging this year double ought six. I'm snagging that one up and treating it like my own chile.

Likely you're getting plenty of lessons this time around TA. Next time around's sure to be a cake walk.

Happy double ought six.

Jack

Thanx for the comments Jack. I almost feel like there's a Kindred Penguin out there in contrast to this black hole. Double ought six was a gun my dad had i think, maybe a deer rifle. There's a penguin movie made recently I want to see and I will investigate that book. Ciao

Ain't no sech animicule as a double ought six, TA. There's double ought buckshot for a shotgun (36 caliber ball, .36 inch diameter, and there's a deer rifle 30 06.... 30 caliber .30 inch diameter.... ) likely your dad had a 30 06 .... good piece of hardware.   But the combo of double ought six has such a nice ring, along with the image I find a bit hilarious of trying to force a 36 caliber ball through a 30 caliber bore. Pressure builds up inside that firing chamber and pure plasma, lock stock and banana peel all come squirting backward for the amusement and edification of the shooter.

I like it a lot.

What? Then where did this # in my head come from? I will phone a gun store on Monday and see what they say. I distictly remember that ca
liber from my childhood. Unless it was a joke then and I didn't get it. . .
hummm maybe in the 50's there was such a thing? Dunno. . .

Call 'em TA. They'll get a bang out of it. Make their day. Maybe you'll find a good lightbulb changer of the right age grouping down there. Get yourself hooked up with a gun nut. He can change your lightbulbs on the one hand and sneak around in the bushes outside looking for prowlers on the other.
