And so it's 2009...

So here we are, 02 January 2009. A new year beginning. I enjoyed what is surely the last, leisurely drive into work this morning. Our busses are still not running as the transit strike wears on, but the traffic during the Holiday Season has been mercifully light, for those of us who had to work in between the two week period. I know only too well that next week, all the commuting horrors of the weeks before Christmas will be re-visited on us.

But that day is not here yet. I refuse to allow today and the coming weekend to be tainted by these negative thoughts. The ride in was relaxing, stress-free. I expect the ride home this afternoon to be every bit as enjoyable. With this positive frame of mind firmly in place, I wish you all a great year and will leave you with more humorous quips, courtesy of my better half:

Ponderings for the New Year, Part 2...

- Why are a wise man and a wise guy opposites?

- Why do overlook and oversee mean opposite things?

- If horrific means to make horrible, does terrific mean to make terrible?

- Why isn't 11 pronounced onety one?

- "I am " is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language. Could it be that "I do" is the longest sentence?

- If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen defrocked, doesn't it follow that electricians can be delighted, musicians denoted, cowboys deranged, models deposed, tree surgeons debarked and dry cleaners depressed?

- Do Roman paramedics refer to IV's as "4's"?

- Why is it that if someone tells you that there are 1 billion stars in the universe you will believe them, but if they tell you a wall has wet paint you will have to touch it to be sure?

- If you take an Oriental person and spin him around several times, does he become disoriented?

- If people from Poland are called "Poles," why aren't people from Holland called "Holes?

- Do infants enjoy infancy as much as adults enjoy adultery?

Enjoy the day... :)
