I spent 48 years caring about what people thought of me. I'm not spending the rest of my life caring about that anymore!

Happy New Year!!

Okay, I'm a bit late with the New Year salutations. I have been to some to give my New Years' smooch. If I missed you, sorry, yours is coming up later.

So, what have I been up to? Pretty much nothing. My life's so boring right now I have to live vicariously through my neighbours, at least something's happening for them:-)

As mentioned in the Christmas blog all the nieces and nephews were here for Christmas-a truly rare occurance! I've loaded some of the pictures on my Flickr blog, You'll see the floor obscenely strewn with gift boxes. Some we couldn't even wrap! It's been a long time since our house looked like this but we had sooo much fun and thank God it was peaceful (most of the time).

New Year's Eve we began a new tradition. We ordered Chinese food, about six different dishes, rented some movies, two pints of ice cream (Butter Pecan, de riguer) and soda pop. We invited some of the girls to come after church service and they decided to come here rather than Watch Service. We ate, laughed, ate some more and laughed even more. You know, it's pretty impossible to watch a movie with five snickering and laughing Black women...it just can't be done. What a great way to being the New Year.

As a rule I don't make resolutions and I'm not going to start now. I will however make predictions. While lurking over at Pos', I read his predictions for 2007 and compared them to see how many had come true. So, without further ado, here are Debo Blue's predictions for 2008:

1) Citicorp will change its name to Citi-al Fayed
2) Bank of America will change its name to Bank of YHiMHN (Your Home is My Home Now)
3) Mandarin Chinese will become the official business language
4) Disney will begin a new channel to train teens on how to become drunks, floozies and permanent rehab fixtures
5) President Huckabee will orchestrate the complete withdrawal of troops from the Middle East
6) Steroid use in professional sports will be approved and accepted, leading to 6 ft 260 lb Little League players
7) Credit cardholders will receive two years' refunds of excessive fees after Congress changes fee structures
8) Oprah Winfrey will buy an island to train future policticians
9) Toyota will have a new US President, a black woman named Theola Johnson
10) Dave Baptista will move to Phoenix in search of his new bride (and I'll be camped out at his doorstep for a month). What? These are my predictions, remember?

Anyway, here's your New Year's kiss:


The Cowboys lost to the New York Giants. Does anyone know how bad I'm feeling? Suffice it to say there's a whole lot of stuff I'd like to write about the 'boys, all of it bad!!!!!!

Boy, do I ever wish I could have spent New Year's Eve with you! Think about that picture - several crazy black women, one nutso-wacky old white lady, videos, food and who knows what else! Could have been a riot and a half! And don't cry too hard over the Cowboys loss kiddo -remember, I'm crying too cause my dear Redskins haven't been the same since they lost the "Over the hill gang" and that was a goodly number of years ago! Glad your holiday was great and overloaded with family and gifts, the New Year was a hoot too -so to heck with the Cowboys till next season ya know! You got the stuff that really counted there didn't ya?

You know Big Sis', I've been looking for you for a while and I never would have imagined that you'd pop up after your precious Cowboys caught a whuppin' like they did yesterday.

I have to give you a "props" on having the fortitude to show yourself after that loss.

p.s. - what was up with the crocodile tears from T.O.? Since when does he care about the "team" and his quaterback?

lol.... happy new year!

some of thise predictions scare me - they're so close to reality!

sorry about your Cowboys - I'm a Jets fan so I know the pain. Not at all pleased about the Giants which of course causes some interesting conversations with my neighbors.

New Year's Eve sounds wonderful!

MC-I'm stocking up on the necissities, just waiting for the partner!

Jeni-thanks for feeling my pain
:-) This is pretty unbearable.

Dragon-how you gone come up here in my house talking about me like that? At least you coulda said you missed me! But I should expect that from a Bear's fan.

Sarala-we watched "Code Name the Cleaner" & "Rush Hour 3". I will definitely send you an invite next New Year's.

Dr.S-I'm gonna dump Romo too.

Dianne-welcome to Blue State. I see you found me from Jeni's? I'll be over.

That list is hilarious!! Happy New Year to you too! I wish I had just opted to get together with a few of my girlfriends too. Sounds like you ladies had a blast!

Happy belated New Year to you. Your new tradition sounds like a ton of fun. I hope some of your predictions are wrong (I really hope we are all talking about President Obama next year). I am not a NFL fan, but I feel for you - I know how bad I feel every time my Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets lose a game or suffer a setback.
