Happy New Year!


I am posting this early because by the time it hits midnight in Klownifornia you eastern seaboarders will be asleep. (Will a little luck and a case of Mexican beer, so will I.)

2013 should be a good year. After 2012 there is nowhere left to go but up. I was gonna come up with something pithy and memorable to say since this is the last post of the year, but I decided to get drunk and watch reruns of Two and a Half Men instead.

Let’s par-tay!

About Myiq2xu - BA, JD, FJB

  2. fif says:

    Happy New Year everyone! 2012 was supposed to be a relief and vindication, and instead, the surreal nonsense continues. I am grateful to come to this small oasis of humor and sanity. Wishing you all health and many moments of happiness in 2013.

    • cj says:

      Surreal nonsense is a wonderful way to describe it. I’m finding that the best antidote is to ignore just about everything coming out of the WH & MSM these days and pretend that the idiot-in-chief is just a figment of everyone else’s imagination, lol. Obama, who?

      Happy New Year everyone !!! May 2013 bring health, happiness and peace to all !!!

    Happy New Year to you too , and everyone here at TCH , this place has been a bright spot this year for me , and I am grateful .
    I fell asleep on the couch for a couple of hours , I have no idea why , just must have needed the sleep , so I am awake now and just might make it to wish you Happy New Year PST.
    I am feeling more optimistic about 2013 , I don’t even know why yet , just a feeling at this point .

  4. Happy New Year to you, Myiq, and thanks for letting me share in the joy of posting. The best to the best of you. I’d name names, but would leave someone out. Some very awesome people participate here. ♥ you all.

    Almost every day is a party here.
    great conversation, good music, a lot of fun.
    could not ask for more.
    lets make 2013 so much better than 2012.

    Is it just me or does Nicki Minaj wear clown make-up?

    I hope everyone at TCH has a happy, healthy and prosperous new year……well that last part may be tough with oblowme at the helm.

    Myiq and all other Californians, please take the time to email or call your senator one Diane Feinstein. Her proposed gun ban is simply over the top, it goes too far, way too far. If you haven’t had the opportunity to read up on it please do.

    Everybody else should familiarize themselves with it too and contact their senators and congressional representative. I’m not even a gun enthusiast and I’m appalled.

    I wish I could be a guitar hero:

    I’m not unhappy about saying good-bye to 2012. Elliesdad and I enter 2013 as a retired couple. I posted my last online grades last week. We’ve decided our “Give a damn” is busted, but with laughter. We’ve stopped paying into social security, and someday we’ll start taking “our share” out. We already know it will be a hell of a lot less than we paid in. If the payroll tax doubles tomorrow, so what? The kid and her husband who voted for Obama can support us if the fiscal cliff takes us into poverty. My car won’t pass inspection anymore, and it’s too expensive to fix it so I have until the end of January to buy a new car. Then we’re putting Ellie in the back seat and taking to the road. I have a lot of relatives we’ve never mooched off of who need a visit from us. There must be a few kids I’ve taught who would like to give their old teacher a dinner when we run out of money. We got our town census in the mail today. If we don’t fill it out and send it back, they’re going to take us off the voter rolls. Like we give a damn? I must say I didn’t expect Elliesdad to laugh as hard as I did. Ellie looked at us like we were nuts. But we’re really looking forward to this new phase of our lives.

    Happy New Year to everyone here! Over the cliff we go!

    • HELENK says:

      if you get to southern California , come on in. yard for Ellie, good food for you and Ellie’s dad.
      Do see all of this great country and meet some of the great people out there.
      several years ago I took a train trip all around the country. best thing I ever did for myself

    • Teacher to teacher, Elliesmom, thank you for your service. And congratulations on retirement!

    • Somebody says:

      Congrats on your joint retirement Elliesmom!! Also, I too would like to thank you for your service. If you venture through north Florida stop by for a visit…….but in June we’ll be retired too and hopefully taking some road trips as well. Who knows maybe our paths will cross.

    • Karma says:

      Congrats on your retirement! What perfect timing! With the extra bonus of getting to laugh at it all. Sounds like bliss.

      And without a doubt your students were lucky to have you as their teacher.

      Congrats, elliesmom & dad!

    I have starred in this video more times than I care to remember:

    This is the band that knocked Kiss off the top of the heap as #1 band:

  13. leslie says:

    I’m signing off for the year. I have relished the time here the laughter, the anger, the smiles and the tears. TCH is more than just a blog and the people here are more than simply names. Thank you all and I wish you – us – all the best new year. Happiness, health, contentment, kindness and beauty are the gifts I wish for us all.

    Happ New Year to all.

    This usually gets me partaaaying…

    • myiq2xu (D) says:

      Every person in this video is at least 50 years old (or dead) right now.

      • Somebody says:

        Skynyrd, my home town boys, along with 38 Special and Molly Hatchet, and yep they’re all over 50 or dead. Good times!!!

        • Somebody says:

          Um that maybe didn’t come out right……the plane crash was a very traumatic event for this community, as were the subsequent deaths of members of the various bands.

          The good times was in reference to their heyday and reminiscing about some of my misspent youth!

        • myiq2xu (D) says:

          I heard about it during first period at high school. I was a senior.

          I wasn’t stoned, I swear!

  15. jeffhas says:

    Crazy-sh*t-filled-roller-coaster-ride of a year…..

    I like what CJ said above…”Obama who?” That is my new motto for 2013.

    Thank you for that and the last 4 years – you guys are the best damned crazy folks (led by a klown of course).


  16. myiq2xu (D) says:

    Personally, I think Raylen never shoulda dumped Ava for Winona. Ava would have stuck by him instead of running off.

    I probably would have done the same thing as Raylen but I always make the wrong choice too.

  17. myiq2xu (D) says:


    I expect to pass out pretty soon. Y’all better behave until I regain consciousness.

  18. Happy 2013 to everyone here!!! Like Lola, I can’t possibly name everyone by name (for different reasons—LOL!!), but I am so glad to have found all of you and am looking forward to hanging out in 2013. Politically, who knows what’s in store? Hopefully we’ll get an uplift after the blowup of 2012……<3

  19. DandyTiger says:

    Happy Fucking New Year!! He’s mud in your eye. And fuck all this politics. It’s a fucking circus anyway. Shit. Did I say I was drinking? Noooo. Yes.

  20. swanspirit says:

    This just suits my mood for saying goodbye to 2012

    To all the wonderful people in this oasis of sanity, happy new year. May 2013 bring you a great deal of whatever you want and need the most.

  29. myiq2xu (D) says:

    Oh shit. My head feels like a squishy tomato.

    Happy New Year (again!) to the best peeps in blogland!

  32. lorac says:

    Hey, it’s next year on the east coast and the midwest – they didn’t even come to tell us what it’s like next year!

  33. lorac says:

    oops Swanspirit sorry I didn’t see your post because it was Jack Nicholson’s best speech at the end of A Few Good Men and I forgot to hit “post”

  34. Karma says:

    Happy New Year!

    It’s been a gift to watch all of this unfold with people who didn’t throw their principles out with the New Dems/Bush III. Looking forward to all of the laughs, rants, tweets, and devastating break downs of the upside down world we live in now.

    All the best to you and yours in 2013.

  35. Locked-N-Loaded says:

    Happy New Year to all at TCH!!!

  36. westcoaster says:

    Happy New Year! Don’t get soaked!(by the rain of course)

  37. myiq2xu (D) says:

    It must be getting close to midnight. The neighbors have started the traditional Discharging of the Firearms.

    Somebody out there has a pet cannon.

    Question: Have you ever heard of anyone being injured or killed by a bullet falling from the sky? Shooting guns in the air is supposed to be dangerous and reckless, but I can’t remember ever seeing a story about some innocent bystander getting shot through the top of their head by a bullet returning to earth.

    I’m serious about that cannon – it’s really loud. It sounds like a howitzer.

  38. SimoFish says:

    Happy New Year. I’m now going to bed !

  39. As usual, I hit the hay at the normal time. I exceeded my lifetime quota of late nights before I was 30.
    Saw the comments above re the Dead concert. Went to one with my sister and a bunch of Dead Heads long long ago. Hartford CT I believe. Outdoor concert of course. We took my son who was I think 4 at the time. The crowd tried to crush us up against the fence in front of the stage. YIKES! Security guards had me hand the boy up over the fence and then scale it myself. We got to watch the rest of the concert inside the security perimeter.
    Hey- I was young- what the hell did I know? He survived- Sr Master Sergeant now lol! He likes things orderly. Wonder why?
