Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!! Zombies! Run for your lives!

With my yearly shower, whether I need it or not.

If the range is open I might go shoot holes in paper. Oh heck, I'll just stay home and shoot holes in the burn barrel. (mine, not the neighbor's)

I put up a fresh calender, usually. I get really confused if I don't do that.

I do make a commitment to myself about how many poems I expect to write and rehash publishing goals. Last year I made a resolution to run again - even once. I managed to do that several times and actively engaged in Zumba. It helps keep me moving when Roe is firing at me - even if they are blanks!

Israel was the end goal last year, I hope to go again in 2013 and Paraguay is screaming my name.

Ron, how do you know the calendar is fresh.... and do you keep it refrigerated?

Ron Holzwarth 2 years, 1 month ago

I can tell it's fresh because it arrives from Y'israel and ends in August or September. And, I haven't even ordered my calender for 5773 yet, so it better be fresh!

(needless to say, I've been confused for a while, my 5772 calender has a Gregorian calender for the last four months, or I would be really lost!)

Maybe I should just give it up and go Gregorian.

I tend to get pissy around the beginning of the year. I realize that "oh crap, it is January and the beginning of the two worst months of the year." Also, I hate the gym because all the stupid resolution people are there and in the way.

Roe, nurf said......

January is good, lab. It's a downhill slide to spring!

Winter officially starts on December 21 or 22, there is a long way to go. If I remember correctly, studies have shown that Jan 24 is usually the most depressing day of the year.

I thought I was doin' good with green teeth . . .

To no longer address the Walking Dumb. I'll try to do better.

Oh, by also becoming the next coming of Andy Warhol.

Well, the first thing, can't talk bout it, let's just say it's loud. Roe would be impressed. Next, laugh at every one with a hang over. Last, black eyed peas.

If you think you might hate yourself in the morning, just sleep 'til noon.

By boycotting businesses who are members of the Chamber of Commerce. Good place to start.

I boycott downtown. Well, except for Wheatfields and ZenZero. As long as I don't have to park in the back. Those stinkin' alleys ruin my appetite.

Leslie Swearingen 2 years, 1 month ago

What is up with the alleys? I thought I would take a short cut, and the pavement looked like it had been shelled. Roe?

If you can march to the beat of a different drummer, I suppose you can track the date with a different calender too.

That might make it a bit difficult to sync up your activities with everyone else, though. But, if you're marching to the beat of a different drummer, who cares?

I am going to watch every movie about snipers, and then write a synopsis of their different techniques, weapons and ammo.

Lab, but with the snow and feel of winter starting some years as early as October, the years it doesn't (like this one) brings us much closer to a three month 'acting' winter as opposed to the possible six month one I've experienced here, in NW Kansas, and certainly in Denver and The North Pole. Get out your special lamps and up your vitamin D intake...... Survive.....winter.....

Roe, ifin ye spent as much time cleanin ur teeth (tooth) as ya do yurin weapons, it would stay in thee mouth longer. Those wooden tooths you were sportin last time I saw ya wernt tha pertiest.
Cousin autie cainnt kep carvin ya nuw ones fram his wooden duck coexscion

Ron, turn off the drums - they're driving me crazy!

Hope everyone is able to keep their feet (and teeth) where they belong tonight. Happy New Year!

I'll never ask to borrow your muddler. You give new meaning to the term...

Maybe the LJWorld could start the new year by remembering where they ask their questions. I'm 100% certain that these pictures were taken at the Clinton Pkwy. Hy-Vee and not at Mass St. Dillons.
