Just checked in my living room and my ex-cousin-in-law Seapage’s (don’t even ask how he got that name) girlfriend Zeenia is getting ready for the big afternoon of New Year’s Eve football at my place….I’m not quite sure what she expects will be going on, but we, da boyz, are all pleased that she is showing college football its proper due by dressing up (and those shoes!!…heaven help us make it through the games!!)….I wonder if she realizes that this excessive male preoccuptation with New Year’s Eve bowl games mostly involves a lot of swearing and jumping up and down and eating gobs-upon-gobs of bad-for-you processed foods….and, of course, drinking just enough beers to take the edge off of “bad things happening to our team”….Very immature (and very male, to be sure), but based on the fact that Zeenia is dressing in my living room while we’re all staring at her through the kitchen door, she’ll probably be able to handle things quite nicely….Oh, and her beloved Seapage won’t even be here…..Seems he’s having some sort of nasal drainage problem he just can’t seem to shake…His loss is our gain (in a pathetic male sort of way)!….Happy New Year again!!

Happy New Year Wishes from World War II Tank Driver, Elmer Kayberline, from Fort Knox!!!….What?…You’re telling me that this photo doesn’t scream out “Happy 2009!”….Please done insult my lack of intelligence….Please?….Guess this shot at a Happy New Years Greeting isn’t any better than my previous post……I’ll keep on a’tryin’!!….Happy New Year!

Guess the movie moguls (are there STILL movie moguls??) are doing a remake of Hitchcock’s “The Birds”….In this version. the Tippi Hedren character (played by this lovely-but-no-Tippi young star) has, after the creatures of the air destroyed the West Coast (and her best friend, the School Marm), befriended the creatures of the air and is bringing them to Washington, D.C., to attack those persons in the Bush Administration (and agency people therein) and the Congress (most of the baddies have “R” after their names, but not all!) who have waged a WAR ON NATURE the past 8 years….She would have brought the Polar Bears and sundry other endangered creatures, but the Birds proved themselves so mobile, so accurate, and so gosh darn pesty in the Hitchcock movie that she decides to go with them (and she’s got only the greatest respect for them considering the beatin’ & peckin’ she suffered in the phone booth, on the street outside the School Marms, and in Rod Taylor’s house just across the lake….The Environmental Mastahs of Disastah in D.C. have warned the Young Miss that she & her Birds will be attacked without mercy and subjected to all forms of cruelty (physical & mental & spiritual) just like any other American citizen (or American creature of the air) would be attacked without mercy, etc., etc.,…..But, according to the bit of the script I saw, the Young Miss tells the Bush/Congress/No-Regulation Anti-Nature Bunch of Heartless Bastards to “Bring it on!”…..Should be good….Guess the Punisher, Ironman, and Jason Statham all play her love interests and fellow combatants in the March of the Birds on D.C.!!….And I thought the last 12 Adam Sandler movies were good…This sounds like it’s going to be a whole lot better than those….And that’s saying something (something stupid I suppose)….Anyway, a “must-see” for January (just before the inauguration!!…..ef=”http://obczaj.net/obrazki/27988.jpg”>

Just so I don’t forget, I want to wish all of you out there in Stumbledom (StumbleDee) a slap-Happy New Year!!….I’ll probably replace this image with a bit more lively one (if I remember, of course–and don’t forget), but i did think this vintage image captured that moment on many of our New Year’s Eves (about 12:!5 a.m. on the New Day!) when we cast our wearied-out-with-fun eyes on our champagne glass/bottle and, lo & behold, see two tiny somewhat humorless fairies playing giggle games around our glass, having a sip here, splashing a bit there, on their way to intoxication and erratic fairy-flying!!!….But really, I do have to find a couple of livelier nymphs, don’t you think??…I’ll work on it…..Whatever, thanks for a wonderful 2008 in Stumbledom (StumbleDee?)?….I think you are all just terrific and many of you are terrifically creative with exquisite (champagne!) taste in photography, painting, sculpture, what is funny (aka, Humor), history, etc., etc…..You’ve made my year feel much more artsy and imaginative than any prior year that I can think of!!….Thanks!!

Speaking of fashion and beauty (was I???…Well, at some point in the past 3 or 4 weeks I MUST have been speaking of fashion and beauty), I just happened upon this extremely-to-the-extremis fashionable and beautiful photo of the legendary (it’s always a bad sign for a person reading a blurb about herself or himself to find the word “legendary”….it’s a term that practically beckons the Grim Reaper to start making plans for you!)….Anyway, the legendary Brigitte Bardot….Who starred in…..Who starred in….Well, that was way before my time, but I do know enough to know that she is very fashionable (in a tight top sort of way) and extremely beautiful (I decided that “very beautiful” didn’t do her justice)!!….I present to you, Ms. Bardot!!

Looked out my kinda dirty (where’s the Windex??) front window about half an hour ago and saw a woman, much like this woman, stooping down to adjust the strap on her high heel…The amazing thing was that just before I looked out of that kinda dirty window I was sittin’ on my kinda dirty old leather couch (which I refuse to give up—so many memories, most involving me sitting on that couch daydreaming) daydreaming that there was a lovely woman outside my kinda dirty window adjusting something or other…Wow, my life is MAGICAL, isn’t it??
