Hello again. Hello

I’ll give you a few minutes to get that song out of your head…

Neil Diamond

And if the Neil Diamond reference was completely lost on you, you’re probably too young to relate to me and I’m not sure we can be friends.

For those of you who used to read this blog back when people actually read blogs and not just snippets of information via social media, Hello again. For those of you who didn’t even know I had a blog, Hello. (See what I did there?)

2014 was a mostly silent year for me on the writing front. There were numerous times when I wanted to rant incessantly about any number of things–trust me, I have an opinion about just about everything. But lately EVERYONE seems to be ranting incessantly about something, and I didn’t want to be just one more cranky voice among the masses.

People were generally more pissy in 2014. The Chinese calendar may have denoted it the Year of the Horse, but let’s be honest. 2014 was the Year of the Grumpy Cat.

She was a media sensation, her fame culminating into its predictable conclusion: a truly horrible movie meant to cash in on all the fuss. It wasn’t the cat’s fault, it was her people.

People ruin everything.

But since January 1 is a chance at new beginnings, I am choosing to begin anew; to see the good and share it with you via my little spot on the Internets. Okay, maybe not all good, but I’ll be sharing again in 2015.

As always,

Sorry/You’re welcome.

Happy New Year!

    Personally, I enjoy a good rant. Because lots of people ARE awful. So, I’m glad you haven’t given up totally, and welcome back to the bloggosphere.

    Oh for the joy of it all! Welcome back miss Katdish.

    And Neil? I have some vinyl of his and listened to a couple songs yesterday. Let’s be honest, I sang, even danced a little too.

    Definitely missed your insights (and yes, rants). Glad you’re writing again. And don’t excommunicate me, but I don’t know that particular Neil Diamond song…

    “And if the Neil Diamond reference was completely lost on you, you’re probably too young to relate to me and I’m not sure we can be friends.”

    We are friends. Even if i don’t get Neil Diamond.

    And I totally thought you were going to call 2014 the year of the ass, because let’s be honest.

    And I didn’t know Grumpy Cat was a girl. I just assumed she was a he. That probably makes me sexist. You’ve posted twice this year. It’s my goal to get something new out this week because of that. HOLD ME ACCOUNTABLE. If you have time. If not, it’s okay.

      You crack me up, Jake. And if you write something, post it to my wall on Facebook. Otherwise I’ll probably miss it. 2014 could have totally been the Year of the Ass.
