To Paraphrase that Famous Woman from Across the Pond


When I think back on the Annus Horribilus of 2008, I will not look back upon it with undiluted pleasure. If I HAD a picture of Her Britannic Majesty mooning anything, I'd post it here, but I don't. This deprecating moue is the best I can come up with. Good riddance to bad rubbish. And a pox on everything that was a major pain in the rear to me this year. I think if someone stood in front of me with a million bucks cold hard cash, and said "Karen, you can have all this money tax free, but you have to relive 2008," I think I'd tell them to go stick it where the sun doesn't shine.
Don't even go there. This is just "for the record."
But Happy New Year. Except to everybody and anybody who supported and/or voted for Barack Obama. Sucks to you. You people will be the reason 2009 will suck too. Thanks for bupkis.

Smiley, Our Lady has been one of the few people on my side! [No problem, Adrienne, but if you don't mind a small finder's fee. ;-D]

Take the million, then at the end of '08 II you will have 2 million to do it again.

I saw you over at the Owl of the Remove.

Happy New Year Karen. I have a horrible sense you will be able to spend 2009 telling those voters for kill'em-all Obama "I told you so".
God bless lots

Happy New Year! Don't write off 2008 just yet...2009 could be a record breaker. At least Hildebeast isn't prez, although that is six of one, half a dozen of the other. Will be interesting to see how she does as Secretary of this sad state of affairs.

Wishing you, and us all, a better 2009.
