One-Third Down, Two-Thirds to Go

OK, who widened the hole in the hourglass?

I feel like I just woke up from a New Year’s Eve Bash and discovered I slept ’til now.

I am Rip Van Winkle Jr.

I am amazed. I am dazed. I am time warped.

I am doing my damnedest to keep my head above the sand.
Some days I feel like I am head and shoulders above it.
Others days I can’t see the light of day from picking grit out of my eyes.
The sandman seems to be the only guy whose job is safe.

Is this 1930 or 2009? Obama who? Is our what? The economy has gone where? Who’s that you say is doing some hard earned jail time? I thought he/she was a CEO/CFO/politician/preacher? What’s this I hear that there is no such thing as a good education anymore … or any education for that matter? And cars? Are we not going to be driving cars? What will happen to the roads? Are we out of gas? By the way my bank seems to be missing. The building mine used to be in is now a Family Dollar Store. My neighbors’ house is gone, or at least it was taken away. My friends’ jobs were too? What happened to State Farm? Has anybody seen my homeowners insurance? What happened to Detroit? Who is the mayor of Illinois? Who is Susan Boyle? Do you have any idea where I can buy a newspaper. Is Britney Spears still alive? Can you believe the price of limes? Is there a doctor in the house? Are there any left (doctors and/or houses)? What’s a good 401 K plan these days? How about stocks? Oh yeah, and what’s a Bailout? Is that like Twitter? It sounds like a get out of jail free card to me. I think I’ll run down to Circuit City and buy a few CDs to calm my nerves.
Well, one-third down and two-thirds to go. Keep me posted on what’s going on.

What a wake up call … sure seems like I’ve got a lot of catching up to do.
Got to run now.
I just got a part time job shoveling sand.
