It’s 2011 — Happy New Year!

The first day of the new year should be a slow blogging day, so make the most of this post. It may be all we can do.

It’s 2011 already? Wow, this century is getting old!

Have we made any resolutions for the new year? No, there’s no need. Your Curmudgeon is just fine the way he is. We trust it’s the same with you.

  1. I got tired of making lofty New Year’s resolutions that I could never hope to attain, so a few years I decided to take the low, practical road.

    This year I have two resolutions:

    1. Be more polite.
    2. Gain 10 pounds.

    (I’m not sure about Number 1, but I’ve already got a head start on Number 2.)

  2. 10th anniv of 9/11
    20th anniv of the fall of the Soviet Union
    30th anniv of MTV
    40th anniv of “All In the Family”
    50th anniv of man in space

    I’m starting to feel a tad Precambrian.

  3. MY only resolution is to finish my ‘novel’.

    My other goal is be promoted to senior content specialist, but I’m hopeful that’s already a done deal after my annual performance review.

  4. I just realized that today’s date can be written 1/1/11. Or perhaps 1-1-11, or even 1.1.11. There’s obviously some deep meaning there, but I can’t figure it out.

    A date that can be represented entirely by the digit “one” is a date almost all Creationists can fathom, and whose sum can be computed by them with varying degrees of accuracy before running out of fingers, toes, and teeth.

  6. Happy New Year, all!

    😀

  7. Happy New Year! Doesn’t 1.1.1.1 have something to do with alcohol? Or was I just up too late last night?

  8. Ellie asks:

    Doesn’t 1.1.1.1 have something to do with alcohol?

    I think it’s the claw-mark of the beast.

  9. You can write the date upside down and it’s the same. Haven’t been able to do that since the year 1961.

    And, 10.11.01 doesn’t count because I say so.

  10. Doc Bill: “Haven’t been able to do that since the year 1961.”

    You can’t invert 1961 either when the “1s” have serifs. But they don’t on the Lincoln cent. Over the years I fooled a few people into thinking that I had a “rare” 1961 cent with an inverted date.

  11. Ohhhh, serifs!

    Well, la-de-dah, aren’t we posh!

  12. Doc Bill says: “Well, la-de-dah, aren’t we posh!”

    Only the best will do for the Curmudgeon’s readers. And … I created that graphic myself.
