happy rollover on Earth’s revolvometer*

Congratulations to Missy on another fine, award-winning year of blogdaciousness.
Congratulations to all who read this on still being able to read this.
Congratulations to Stilton on reaching a kilotoon.
(What? Oh, right. Almost forgot …)
Spankings for The Earth!
(although after more’n four-billion birthdays, it’s prob’ly gettin’ to be old hat)

New Year’s resolutions, anyone?
I don’t have any.
The last resolution I made was not to make any more New Year’s resolutions.
It’s the only one I’ve ever kept.

I hope we’re able to do this again a year from now, Mayan calendar an’ all.
But next year, let’s do it with the knowledge that our nightmare will be over in a few weeks.

* … or is it rotatometer?


Finish your assignment! »

    If the Mayans had Premivera, they could have included some GANT and PERT charts, or added some really cool graphics. Unfortunately, they didn’t, so when they ran out of rock, they ran out of calender.

    The lack of technology is a bitch.

    Barackula Ogabe’s re-election might just be a fitting end to the universe.

    Anyone who hasn’t should go over and read through the awards.

    Very amusing.

    DougM, HNY & I wanna halp you out with some of the techno-linguistics prollems you’re havin’!
    A REVOLVOMETER was found in many of the 100 series Volvos imported into this country back in the ’60s. It kept track of how many times the odometers indexed back to 00000 miles.

    I think the archy-ologists made a mistake in translation. *I* think the poor sucker who got the job of chipping out that fucking stone was jist predicting how fucking long it was gonna take him to get the job done!!!!!! {…I mean, if it was me, Ida dreamed of a Home Depot electrical toolz aisle…}

    ^ ColJ,
    Hmm …
    perhaps it was an estimate of how long it would take to pay off the tribal debt.

    My kid made the astute observation that our 2012 calendars run out in December.

    We’re doubly screwed now.
