A new year begins...

OK, so it's now 2009. We bid a not-too-soon adieu to 2008, and hope that this year will suck very much less. The year hasn't been too bad so far, but then again, we're only 5 days in. We'll see how the next 360 days go.

The Colts are out. Just like that. They're out. No hype, no glory, no games. Just out. I see Dungy leaving this year, and Peyton Manning will be gone soon after. Is it the end of an era? I guess time will tell, but it doesn't look too good! One good thing that happened this season was that I got to see my first Colts game in person--in living color, in the Lucas Oil Stadium ("The Luke"). My lovely bride acquired a pair of tickets from a season ticket holder on Ebay, and the seats were nothing short of great! It was a victorious game over the Titans, so if nothing else, my presence didn't jinx the game!

Another interesting development is taking place as I write this--after waiting FIVE months, our countertops are finally being installed. You read that right--FIVE months. This is the third attempt at installation, and Lowe's is footing the bill for all of it. In what normally takes 4-6 weeks, we've been FIVE MONTHS. So, for future reference, never EVER get your countertops from Lowe's. Go to Home Depot or anywhere else. Anywhere else. Lowe's kitchen service is so fucked up that it's hard to imagine them making money at this. Just go to Sears, buy your tools and appliances, then go to Home Depot and order the cabinets and countertops. Avoid Lowe's at all costs. They suck. Period.

Finally, it wouldn't be me if I didn't make a snide comment about our President-elect, Barack Hussein Osama Obama. What a joke. The military is showing that more than 65% of soldiers don't believe BHO has the experience (read: cajones) to direct the military, especially in war time. For someone who doesn't even have one second of military experience, I believe they are rightfully concerned. This so-called "African-American" who is more Caucasian than anything else is a failure already. His policies are already changing, and his promises are fizzling out like a fart in a whirlwind. He touted CHANGE...what he meant was CHANGE COLORS. That's all he is. I'm sick of him, and wish him the worst.

That's all for now. Until next time...
