Why not start out the New Year with something like this. . . you know, the cucumber in last night's salad did have a funny taste to it . . . hmmmm.

Pass the asparagus, please!

1. Last week was "The Most Wonderful time of the Year", but what are your favorite 2007 memories?

Going back to work and lead the organization that I spent 8 years with as their interim administrator. It was like going home. Second best memories are with the wife and family. They were some of the best.

2. What is the best thing you learned in 2007?

Never trust a sliced cucumber

3. On a scale of 1-10, how good was your 2007?

I'd have to say it was a 8 or 9. It was pretty good.

The only bad thing about 2007 was paying close to $10,000 in back income taxes which was in addition the 15k already paid. That was not fun.

4. What is your wish for 2008? What is your wish for someone else for 2008?

My wish for 2008 is the election of a president who is not female, who is not white, who knows what the hell he's doing and who is a peace maker not a peace breaker.

5. If you knew that you were going to die in 2008 what one thing would you do?

Grab myself by the ankles, bend over and kiss my ass good-bye!

Bonus (as in optional):Do you make New Year's resolutions? What is/are your's for 2008?

Like it says on the headline of this blog:

"One resolution I have made, and try always to keep, is this: To rise above the little things." ~John Burroughs

Okay, we agree on this, Bob! I do not want a female president either. I do kinda like Obama, but i think it's only cuz he's real sexy. hehe. :)

Sounds like you had a great '07! Here's hoping that '08 is even better!!

Happy New Year to you and your family, Bob! :)

Bob, Happy New Year. Good post. This was almost as good as the woman who caught his guy cheating on him. So she filmed herself making cookies for him. What she did is have a couple of the neighborhood guys over and she blew 'em. Then spit into the cookie batter and cooked them right up. She left him the cookies and the video tape as something entertaining to watch while he ate the cookies. Since she spliced the baking part in the middle of the video tape, he was half way through eating the cookies when he found out what the ingredients were....

Just so wrong....

Katie: Never looked at Obama in that way . . . Call that one-half things we agree about! Happy New Year to you, too!

Blessed: I love to make you laugh. Happy New Year, too!

Fox: Is that like getting your cookies off?

Every time I open the vegetable crisper I will forever give an extra glance at the cucumber when I'm especially pissed at Mr B.
