Brain Puke XVI

Look out blogger friends, I'mma gonna hurl!

As Freckles (the Canadian dear) pointed out, I have not written a post like this for over a year, so...THAR SHE BLOWS (heh heh heh)!

We lost 3 blogger friends this year: David Jeffries, Wayne The Cajun, Jay Murphy.  :(

Once a month, a local knitter friend and I meetup to drink and eat and talk and knit.  I have always had trouble making women friends cause...bitches.  I actually look forward to my meetups with "the tree"!

OMB, Spo sent me this FABU video yesterday:


I know beary guys are not everyone's cuppa tea (no rubbish) (sorry, Debra), but sweet mother of pearl!

I STILL wish my boyfriends lived closer to me. 

I am STILL going to the gym 2x/week.  After 5 years, I am still fat, but I am strong and flexible and toning up and my arthritis keeps away due to weight lifting/pushing/pulling.  My highest is a leg machine - 215 pounds pushing.  My lowest is a shoulder machine - 20 pounds lifting.  I never thought that exercise could be fun and that I would stick with it this long.  I thank my caring trainers for that. 

I finished 8 knitting projects this year.

Now for a musical interlude:


 
2015 saw some great things happen:
 
Marriage equality (finally)

Queen Elizabeth II became the longest-reigning monarch in Britain

Spouse and I got to Rehoboth Beach in October for a long weekend and some boyfriend meetups

I acquired some new blog followers

Justin Trudeau (RAWR!) elected PM of Canada

I celebrated 12 years at my job, the longest job I have ever held 

Now for a musical interlude:


2015 also saw some shit hit the fan:

White people killing black people because...black

Donald the Rump, and the rest of the GOP h8ers

Religious nutjobs spouting off whackadoodle theories

Bill Cosby (what a skeevy homeboy)

All the Kraptrashian/Jenner Klan

All the Duggar Klan

Kim (the Kentucky Kunt) Davis

My loser baseball/football/basketball/hockey teams

Jessica Simpson and her ugly sister Ashlee...WHY do these two even exist

Some hillbillies named Joey & Rory F(r)eek

The entire US Congress

Several SCOTUS members

The entire PA state legislature

Domestic USA home-grown citizen terrorists 

Now for a musical interlude:


HAPPY NEW YEAR 2016 TO ALL AND TO ALL A GOOD YEAR!

    1. I guess I have not had much to bitch about this past year; life was good for me. right now the cats are settled down for their morning naps, and I just woke up 30 minutes ago. I have cawfee, the pork roast is slow cooking, and last night's dishes need to be loaded into the dishwasher.

      hope your midnight salmon was dee-lish!

  10. OMG! What a bumper post this is A.M.! I can hardly get my head round it (as the actress said to.....).
    I'll have to return to it in a wee while but meantime I'll grasp the oppo and run with it to wish you ALL and ONLY the very best for 2016, as also to RTG (which I've already just done anyway) - as well as, of course, to your 'three little maids so cool' - and wishing you a year with fewer problems (or, better still, none), fewer losses (or, better still, none) but, above all else, fine health, which no amount of money can buy.
    Luv too from my furry co-residents, all peacefully slumbering right now - and, thank Heavens, little old Blackso got the vet's all clear yesterday following his recent troubles, bless him (both Blackso and the vet). Cause for breaking open a bottle of bubbly, if only I had one!
    See ya later.
    Byeeeeee!

    1. YAYZ for a good report on blackso! a great way to start 2016! I bet that man on fearsome beard's blog post would share his champagne with you (in more ways than one)!

      thank you for your friendship, dear; you are a rare bird indeed!

      Delete
    2. Thankx, A.M., but your perspective on me is, in my experience, (particularly with the male of the species) not shared by so many - unless they regard 'rare bird' as being something undesirable (sob sob!). But hey, there's still time! Here's to you and the re-vivified Blackso. Have a fine remainder of NY day, my dear.

    3. one load of dishes is washed already; a pork roast is braising away in the crock pot; I am listening to the "vienna new year's day concert" on the radio; and I am about to start the grocery list for a shopping trip tomorrow. cats and spouse are asleep. as soon as the list is completed, it's onto some knitting/meditation.

    4. Not sure whether I should have applauded or to weep for you. (It's now 10.15 a.m. on 2nd). Maybe should have been both.

    5. Well, it took a little time coming but here it is....... D'you hear it? (AND my whistles!)

  11. I've learned something new on the first day of the year, because I never would have guessed you worked out! You must have a powerful pair of thighs by now and I bet they don't look bad, If you hung out with my jungle tribe we could get your butt nice and taut too!

    Happy New Year, Anne Marie.

    1. learn something new every day, noble ape; it keeps the mind fresh.

      I started lifting/pushing/pulling weights due to arthritis from my hips on down; I have strength/flexibility/toning goals; I increase the weight by 5 pounds when my body gives me the OK to do so. I also keep a small notebook with details on machine/weight setting/date performed.

      I have no doubt you and your ape buddies could trim away the butt fat in no time!

      HNY 2016, dear ape; thanks for being a part of my life!

  14. There now, doesn't everyone feel better after a good puking? I sure do. Now lots of clear head space to welcome in the New Year. Happy 2016 to you, RTG, and the kittycats.

    Thanks for the chuckle! :)
