We're Saying Shine To 2009.

You Might Be Ready For A New Year...
(With Much Respect to Jeff Foxworthy)

If your left eye has been twitching since late March...
...you might be ready for a new year.

If your definition of "comfort food" has expanded
to include anything that doesn't bite you back...

...you might be ready for a new year.

If the most recent comment you heard
at the
grocery store was "Nice bathrobe,"...
...you might be ready for a new year.

If your typical Saturday night has become
"Who's The Boss?" reruns and a good cry...

...you might be ready for a new year.

If you were recently ejected from

your place of worship for heckling...

...you might be ready for a new year.

If putting on your "brave face"
does nothing but spook your dogs...

...you might be ready for a new year.

If you've take to watching "The Shining"

because it helps you relax...

...you might be ready for a new year.



Here's to a new year that nurtures,
protects and inspires us all.


Cheers, Everyone!

Love,

Dear Anna,
Holy crap. I didn't think I was ready for a new year until I read your quiz. Your ability to enlighten is unparalleled.

Thanks for a 2009 full of funny stuff. Here's to (what the heck are we calling it? O-10? 10? 20-10?)...next year.

Heather said...

Happy New Year to you and yours, Anna! I hope Twenty-Ten brings nothing but good health and good times.

Or at least a year's supply of Cheetos and chocolate.

That is awesome. God, I hate Jeff Foxworthy. Hope you have a wonderful, wonderful new year. p.s. got the boys big fake nose/moustache glasses for their stockings this year and couldn't help but think of you, as the whole family passed them around and tried them on.

Florinda said...

Oh, I think I'm ready for 2010. I just to hope to meet up with you at some point during it :-). Happy New Year, Anna, and thanks for all the laughs!

Anna said...

Happy New Year, Anna! Thank you for making me laugh throughout 2009, and I trust there'll be plenty of guffaws in 2010!

BIG hug,

Anna

Miss Dot said...

Haha! Is this your way of telling us you're ready for a new year?

Happy new year, girl!! Sounds like you and me both could use a clean slate ;)

Have a New Year of wonder, Anna! ♥

RobynsOnlineWorld said...

Apparently, after reading this, I really am ready for a new year!

Happy New Year - I hope 2010 is wonderful for you!

Ann's Rants said...

You are a class act, a top-notch writer, and very very funny lady.

Happy New Year, friend.

Ann

I resemble that - But watching Full House reruns. Ready for 2010! Happy New Year!

Joanie M said...

Oh yeah! I'm ready!

Lisa Page Rosenberg said...

Either we are kindred spirits or I have neglected to turn off my live streaming web cam and you are mocking me with this list. Either way, I approve.

Happy New Year.

Jeanne said...

I am soooo ready!

Berowne said...

If you spend New Year's Eve brushing your teeth and getting ready for bed. :-)

Beth said...

Your posts never disappoint! Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!!!:D

Miss Dot said...

Thank heavens you made a list -- I just wasn't sure if I was ready for 2010 until I went through it and said "yes" to each and every one.

Thanks for such funny posts -- you make me laugh so much! I've posted a couple awards for you on my blog. Feel free to come check them out!

Lidian said...

This is a good quiz - it is plugged into the Zeitgeist, I think, although that really sounds very dubious! You know what I mean, right?

Look forward to reading you in 2010, having stumbled (as opposed to Stumbled)upon your blog via FB.

Happy New Year!

Kulio said...

haha, and happy new year!

Looking forward to all of your great humor in this new year!

Andy said...

Happy new year...

If you touch your laptop keys more than you touch your significant other...
... you might be ready for a new year.

That might be me. Crap.

Jay Amabile said...

Happy New Year Anna! I look forward to reading more of your blog in 2010!

La Belette Rouge said...

Happy New Year, Anna!!! Hope 2010 is filled with lots of dreams come true.

Wha-wha-what!? Going to the store in your bathrobe means you're ready for a new year? Why, I stayed in my bathrobe for all 12 months of 2009. If only I'd known, I just needed to turn the page to 2010.

MuseSwings said...

That WAS a nice bathrobe. chenille is back in style, isn't it? Happy Oh-10 to you!

MuseSwings said...

I posted my Armageddon thoughts and mentioned your great post about the Mayan calendar. I prefer the Aztec myself.

HermanTurnip said...

Replacing "you might be ready for a new year" with "you might be French" works just as well... ;-)

Haven't quite lowered the bar to wearing my bathrobe in public (unless I'm standing on my lawn yelling at naked children to "GET back inside" - I figure the fact that at least I'm clothed cancels out the fact that it's noon). But I'm definitely ready for a new year. 2009 wasn't my favorite...

Happy new year to you!
