This Time Around It's Gonna Be Different

  1. The cat may not say it so ummm colorful, but yep, time is all a bunch of bs. No one day is going to change things. Whether it's new year or August 5th, same shit's going to be there until you change it.

    1. I'll tell you what time it is.

  2. Time, yes time. Time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like bananas. 2016 sucked the big weenie, but I'm not counting on 2017 to be better. Maybe different, though.

    1. Well, the number went from 2016 to 2017 on the calendar, so things are definitely different now. We're all different. This year I'm going to be a zebra.

  3. Well, you're off to a good start there...
    I think you nailed the description of 2016. It certainly brought out the whiners.
    Happy 2017!

  5. Be careful. If 2016 sees you hanging out with 2017, it's going to go down.

  6. B&B:
    By ALL means, let's get on with THIS year!
    Nice way you describe the past year...you guys haven't missed a step.
    Keep saying what needs to be said and may this year find all of you in good health, and with the sense of humor we've come to expect (no pressure, right? LOL).

    Stay safe out there, guys.

    1. Awww man, we have to be BETTER this year? We were really hoping to get away with being just a little bit crappier than last year, to the point that people kinda notice but still put up with it. Kinda like bad drugs.

      I guess we'll improve. If we have to. You have a great year too, good sir!

  7. HAHAHA! I loved the images of 2016 and 2017. I sure hope that won't be me dragging behind 2017's motorcycle, though.

    Happy New Year! ;)

    1. 2017 is taking off with all of us whether we like it or not. We're all shackled in for the ride, and at this point, the best you can do is try to position yourself so that you're not directly behind the muffler.

  8. I thought 2016 was epic, and I expect 2017 to be even epicer!

    I'm all about the Trump Train, I'm all about my new blog, I'm all about drinking less and meditating more, and I'm 'All About Eve'. (Don't ask. ...But I'm diggin' these new restroom rules. Thanks, Obama!)

    1. Completely unrelated, I wish you both the very best for <>! Here's to many good beers and whatever else is still good and holy in this world.

    2. Ha! That's fantastic. Embeds are working here just fine. Are you on a mobile device? Embedding doesn't work on those, because reasons. I would fix it, but that requires knowledge way above my pay grade (which is zero).

      And yes, wishing someone a happy year is pretty specific, isn't it? I wish you a great 2017 and a decent 2018, but then a shitty 2019 where everything you ever loved dies, and finally a spectacular 2020 (to make up for 2019).

      Delete
    3. Found it, I needed to unblock "Google Widgets" in Ghostery, now they embed just fine. Zero pay for zero hours of work, sounds reasonable to me.
      The less-than greater-than signs were supposed to contain another pair and the text "the current year" but I guess the html parser ate that. ):

    4. You still had us blocked in Ghostery? We unblocked your entire site and all plugins from Ghostery almost instantly... (sniffle, sniffle)

  14. Every year can be crappy but Trump winning and Bowie, Wilder, Fisher, Reynolds et al dying has made 2016 just downright icky. Aside from that, any year can be great or sucky depending on how you look at it. Let's hope 2017 doesn't drag your ass through a thistle bush

  24. Aw, 2016 wasn't so bad, for me anyways. Not so sure we should be looking forward to 2017 with Trump as Pres. But hey, if he doesn't blow up the world in the first year, who's to say how much better 2018 might be.

    ReplyDelete

    1. 2016 wasn't bad for the two of us either. We just thought this was a funny idea. 2017 has already been pretty awesome, and we have some great projects planned. Unless Trump is vetoing those, you won't find us moping around.

  25. The deaths have already continued into 2017, further proving that time really is a human construct. You're still the same piece of shit you were last year (not you guys, you guys are great) and everything is as it was just a week ago, back in 2016. May your new year be adequate.

    1. People are still dying? I was assured this would stop when the date changed. I want a refund. May your new year be equally adequate, and may the millions that end up dying not be you.

  26. The company I work for is a non-profit that works with a lot of elderly people so we have quite a few deaths per year. It was hard to get used to, but sadly, it's part of the job. After having been off work for the last two weeks, I went back on Tuesday and it was like those last two weeks of 2016 was too much for some of our clients. So many died. I'd be lying if I said I didn't tear up reading email after email of death notifications. C'mon 2017, be a bit kinder to our clients, huh? I don't really care about celebrities...well, most celebrities. Prince almost made ma cry. Almost.

    Replies
    1. That has to be such a surreal experience - knowing that most of those people are on their way out. I don't have anything smartass to say to that. I guess the only thing I can say is that if they're elderly, at least they're most likely dying of old age after having fulfilled a long, happy life, and that's all any of us can hope for?

    1. "2017 was the year I wrote something truly great." As long as you can say that, then 2017 wasn't a complete disaster. Unless, you know, we're all dead or in prison or in concentration camps or something like that. But let's call that scenario fairly unlikely.

  37. Cookies and beer, don't think I'd like that combo. . .of course that might depend on what kind of cookies. And isn't that a rough ride - going for a drag? I'm glad to see 2016 gone, and there's always a chance 2017 could be a winner, but better keep your options open. . .swearing in time is coming for a certain person, then we'll see what we'll see. IF you know what I mean.

    1. Try those cookies with a nice vanilla porter. It might change your mind... or liquefy your mind. Either is good. I'm willing to give 2017 a chance, and if it's a bust, well, there's always beer (he can't outlaw that... right? RIGHT?).
