Good Bye, Good Riddance 2008!

Sweet Jesus! Are y’all as fucking happy as I am that 2008 is over? This year has basically sucked ass for me. Yeah, I have some bright spots. Learning a new skill. Other than being pretty much insane, I’m healthy. Gas prices have gone down. I have some absolutely fabulous friends in “real life” and in Blogland. My daughter’s been cancer free for over two years. Giggles had a healthy baby girl. My son is working full-time. I still have a job and Mulder has one, too. There’s some other things but I’m a glass half-empty kind of person unless the glass is half-full of Guinness then I know I’m feeling happy. Anyway, my con side of the scale is weightier than the pro side. So, I’m looking forward to kicking 2008 to the curb and jumping on 2009 with gusto!

I figure everyone will be off drinking, partying and recovering this week so I’m going to wait until next week to post another installment of “Rocky.” Don’t whine. It’s not attractive.

Back in April John-Michael tagged me with a MeMe. I’m going to do it now followed by the MeMe DJ Kirkby tagged me with in May. Yeah, yeah! I know I’m slow but better late than never.

101 Posts

Hi! How’s everybody doing? I’m okay. Semi-zombie, semi-insane. You know, the usual. I wanted to do this post as my 100th post but as you can see, among my other talents, I can’t count. I know everyone in Blogland is on tenterhooks waiting to hear about my romp with Rocky but y’all will have to wait a little while longer. It’s worth it, I think.

I’d like to celebrate my 101st post by saying, THANK YOU!, to a few people and by pimping some other things that are near and dear to me.

DJ Kirkby mentioned this

on her blog and I think it’s a very worthwhile thing. Just think about something, anything!, that matters to you and write it down for the entire internet to see. Beauty! Isn’t it? C’mon, even a wicked old bitch like me has something(s) that matter.

I also would like to thank DJ Kirkby for once again awarding me her Wordless Wednesday Award for this caption. Actually, Trousers found my comment, “My tits are alive with the sound of music!” award worthy. Thank you both, very much.

Trixie also gave me an award for her first ever, Tickle Trixie’s Fancy – Wordless Wednesday. I’m so honored. Thank you, Trixie!

If y’all don’t read Garbonzo, Should Have Been Here Yesterday blog, you should. At least PLEASE do yourself a favor and read this one .
If you don’t pee yourself laughing and wonder about this guy being a teacher, then there is something wrong with you.

The lovely Giggles! Introduced me to Daren Callow, who is a wonderful singer/songwriter. I requested one of his sample CD’s and was so pleasantly surprised at what a great performer he is. His songs are stories and I like that. I’m partial to When The Snow Fell On Denver and Obsession. Please go listen and watch Daren if you haven’t already. It’s a little free Christmas (Hanukah) gift you can give yourself. I hope when I get to the UK, if I haven’t gone deaf and blind with age, that I’ll be able to see Daren in person. Or better yet, I hope he gets more famous and will have a US tour, first stop – Florida!

In case you don’t know, a fellow blogger, Butterfly Temptress, is battling cancer. Babeland is offering a 10% discount through December 31st, to everyone that orders through a Babeland affiliate link (see my sidebar) when you enter BUTTERFLY at checkout. Now, I know with the economy the way it is, money is tight but take a look at this for twenty bucks! And you’ll get a discount AND help a fellow blogger. Even if you have insurance, treating cancer costs major money. I know from my daughter’s treatment. Babeland has tons of awesome items under $25.00. I’ve asked to be able to review and give away one of the Pink Kink Kits, so stay tuned in January!

The owner is also offering FREE Gold Memberships to the first 250 people who join. What’s better than FREE? Yeah, I know FREE with whipped cream and blindfolds but you gotta supply them. Twisted Pleasures can only give so much!

Here’s my shameless self-promotion. I’ve opened my ETSY store. Go visit, please.

You don’t have to buy but could you go look? Please. I’m adding things at my usual snail’s pace and will soon do charity donations as soon as I start selling stuff! Thanks!

Once again, I want to say THANK YOU! to every single person that has visited my blog whether you’ve commented or not. Special thank you’s with big, sloppy, wet kisses to the people that do comment. I love you. I get tingly when you leave a comment because I know that you’ve read the words I’ve written. I know that I’m not alone, that you understand and care. That you’ve taken the time to let me know that makes my itty, bitty zombie heart swell with love. Each and every person who is on my blog roll is special to me just as those who read my blog are. Very, very, very special love to Lady In Red, Ronjazz and Cherrie (Sensuous Libertine) who were the very first commenter’s when I hadn’t even written a word yet! Y’all rocked my world and inspired me to continue. I hope that everyone will stick around for the next 100 posts.
