48 Hours till the end of 05 .....
What a year its been ....
This year we lost some damn fine actors , comediens , popes , artists,and a couple casinos ....
We had some crazy fat girl named katrina show up with 12 of her friends on our doorstep. Katrina got a little tipsy and squashed the magnificent gulf coast like a cheap coffietable causeing so very many to be homeless and on the run. Afterwich she passed out on top of a few oil refinerys causeing massive problems for us gas guzzleing cadillac owners. Many of us are still reaching for vasaline instead of our credit cards at the pump. And yet so many still find ways to donate to help those that are as one freind told me "beyond devistated".
Across the pond the brittsh showed off that "Stiff upper lip" when the cowards ...er terrorists attacked there transit system sending familiar chills down the backs of the US and Spain.....
A quake in Packistan/India killed almost twice the ammount of US troops lost in vietnam, a staggering ammount....
As far as contraversy , nothing could beat Terri Shaivo , opionions on "the right thing to do" were almost as inviviual as a fingerprint ...
Some things havent changed.....War still rages on , protests continue , scandals , and we still have a "now hireing" sign on the doorstep of the supreme court ....
I for one , think 2005 wore out its welcome , time to kick it in the sac and send it packin .....

I plan on getting plum drunk and laid! And not necessarily in that order...
By the way Stoney, that Katrina analysis is freakin' hillarious! Especially the thing about needing vasoline...
I realize it hit in 2004, but we started the year on a down note with that damn tsunami. That was 230,000+ dead.
The quake was probably 100,000+.
Katrina/Rita will probably surpass $100,000,000,000.
The economy is headed for the sh!tter, the president is headed for an impeachment investigation, and GM is headed for chapter 11.
I'm with Stoney. This year sucked. So have the previous three for me. It's time to win a few.

Dear Esteemed Friends,
Happy New Year!!!
The contention that (2004 &) 2005 sucked,
is wholly meritorious. It will likely be
legendary in terms of shittiness for years
Nonetheless, we must strive to make 2006
a better year, since that much bad shit
will hopefully not repeat itself in one (1)
twelve (12) month time frame.
Moreover; and, on a much more positive note:
I will kick 2005's arse out the door by bringing
in the New Year at home, while capping it off with
a bottle of Cuvee Dom Perignon (Vintage 1990)
;and, a Cuban Cigar, the like of which remains
undecided, at present.
Getting laid; albeit with my own wife, is
also a large part of the romantic agenda
component of the celebratory evening
I'm alive and I'm here. All in all, it's been a good year.
I came within 24 hours of closing my young business just before it's 3rd anniversary in May, I'm ending the year with a little money in the checking and savings account.
My daughter graduated from High School and started Community College.
My dear old Grandmother turned 91 and is still lucid and happy.
My parents are doing better this year than ever before.
Our church bought property for less than half it's value.
My kids are doing well in school, none are pregnant (they don't even have boyfriends - hallelujah!) and they are not in trouble with the authorities.
My wife not only still loves me after 20 years, she likes me too!
I'm a blessed and happy man.
2006? Bring it on baby!

Found a good female so spending it with her...and my other lady -- 40 cal. Maybe some Henn to get me going...thats about it.
04 and 05 sucked ass. I am thankfull for what little bit was salvageable, but overall it has been shitty. These last two years are going to be the kind our grandchildren will read about in history class, right along side with the depression. Of course, there will be a year that will be crappier than this later on. I can see it now.
Gasoline spiked to $7.50 a gallon today due to hurricane "OMGWTFSTFU" hitting the one refinery in the gulf coast. Oil still hasn't hit the inflation based high set back in 2005.
I shall be at work...from 9am until 3am of the first...but, I work in a bar, so I'll be making undgodly amounts of money, and then I've got four days off and a few friends from San Diego will be in town...to drink a keg of beer and a couple of bottles of Bookers...all in all, I can't complain.
2005 was the worst year of my life!
It was the year I spent February thru April - 90 days - in bed, and then walking with a cane, due to an injury, it was the year my 2 year old Town Car got slammed in the rear end at 45 MPH and sustained $ 18,437.00 in damage, it was the year of $3.30 @ gall. premium fuel, and the year I sent away my final payment to my son's college to finish paying for his education, (and introduction to beer); totalling $ 160,000.00, totally eliminating 100% of the money I got from my deceased parents home of 46 years. It was, indeed, the year from hEII ! I look forward to 2006, if only to get the HEII rid of 2005. I have nothing planned other than stay home with the wife. Our 22 year old son has plans to travel 14 miles to a college roomates drinking party and sleep over & come home on January 1st around 4PM. It's the 7th night of Chanukah, so I'll have to try real hard to NOT have a verbal fight with the wife (easier said than done)!
"Yes, Dear" :worship:
Kev is wise.
Count your blessings. Good man!

Go ahead Kev that's a solid report man.
War winding down.
Friends died, others came close.
I still hate the people I hated in 2004.
I miss Luther Vandross.
Economy booming, even in the face of higher energy costs.

I'll spend much of the night providing taxi service for friends who have celebrated a little too much.
My home is open as a crash pad (no pun intended!)
It's usually a great time...the party comes to me!
There are 3 nights a year that are truely "Amature Night" and I stay away from the clubs:
-St. Patrick's Day
-New Year's Eve
Here's wishing everyone a Happy and Healthy 2006!
