5 things I wonder about 2012

2011 is behind us and so far 2012 seems to be much of the same.  Politicians are squabbling, books and movies are being created and read or watched.  I still work for a living, no one handed me 20 million dollars to relax for the rest of time. My cat still walks on my keyboard....

So as we move further into 2012, here are 5 things I wonder about:

1) Are the Mayans right?  Is this the last year of our existence?  If so, than my diet is pointless....just saying Mr. New Years Resolution tab keeper, you f@cking prick.

2) Will a company called Skynet emerge and are we REALLY only 17 years away from the post-apocalyptic world portrayed in Terminator?

3) Where are the damned hover boards and flying cars we were promised in Back to the Future 2?  They have 3...THREE...3 years to get us that shit before 2015. By the way...we seem to be pretty far off from the time machine too, which should have been made about 28 years ago.  Though it is possible one exists and reality is constantly changing around me...

4) I wonder if 2012 will see the end of the Buffalo Bills playoff drought.  It has been 12 years of futility and no other team playing has a current streak that long.  Not even the Detroit Lions.

5) What ridiculous trend will inspire children everywhere, as well as some fragile adults?  Over the years we have been graced with Pogs, GigaPets,and more recently Silly Bandz.  Kids these days are not near as cool as those of us that remember Glo Worms and LiteBrite.

Have a great 2012!


  1. I'm rooting for gonks to make a comeback! (please tell me someone remembers gonks...). And you'll never get your cat off your keyboard - as far as it's concerned it's a rival for your attention so deserves being sat on!

  2. You're so lucky to have a kitty on your keyboard! My last kitty died over a year ago and I miss her funny, attention grabbing antics. The Mayans made a really cool looking calendar but that's about the as much as I can say about that. The way people drive automobiles, it would be frightening to see them in vehicles that fly! As for glo-worms and LiteBrites, well, they were the best. Etch-A-Sketch was pretty neat too!

  4. I could use a time machine...

    If the Mayans were right, and you used your time machine to go into the future, like next year....
    wow, that's heavy.

    I must go and ponder this now...but I'll Be Back.
