Yet another Post-Holiday Post:


Thought for the Day:
The important thing is this: To be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become.
Charles DuBois

Status Update:
I sit here typing this in front of a roaring fire, sadly missing a large part of my eyebrows. However, homemade napalm does in fact facilitate starting a fire in the fireplace, granted my dosage does need some tweaking. I trust, you the reader are full well on track to disregard those pesky New Years Resolutions, I being self assured never much for those trappings designed for those of weaker constitutions.

What a year it has been, some of the selected highlights would be:
Replacing stolen copper pipes.
Travels across the western world as a world famous consultant.
Curing Polio, only to find out someone beat me to it.
Taking 3rd place at the haggis toss, during the Tri-State Highland Games.
Both my flower and I being part of Staffing Cut-Downs, for a total of three places of employment.
Finding secret joy in dbl. shots and the musical stylings of that song smith Mr. Glen Campbell.
Getting into a fight on my birthday and having a police dog attack me
Working on the O’bama campaign, I always support the Irish
My hard work translating into a cushy government job for My Flower
Working 3 part-time jobs, for 60 to 70 hours a week.
Car problems and more car problems
Winning the Southside Catfish Noodling Invitational
Having the tips of two fingers reattached
Playing some of the best lackluster Rugby of my distinguished career
Making gin in my bathtub and having my feet smell like juniper for two months
Spending time with those I love and care for.
Several colorful trips to the local ERs.
Once again gaining full time employment saving my fellow man

Yes, dear friend…it has been a slow year I shall endeavor to uphold the high standard(s) of this blog.

Today;s Bill:
To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.
Macbeth Act 5, scene 5, 19–28

Quote of the Day:
Your equipment DOES NOT affect the quality of your image. The less time and effort you spend worrying about your equipment the more time and effort you can spend creating great images. The right equipment just makes it easier, faster or more convenient for you to get the results you need.
Ken Rockwell

I remain, as effective as your first mustache and just as sharp.
