Happy New Year

I have two important, auspicious announcements to make so listen up:

  1. I am making a New Years resolution.
    Shut up, I am! I have never seen an eye doctor; the only eye exams I've had have been done at the DMV. So in 2009 I resolve to make an appointment to have an honest to God eye exam, performed by a real doctor! I'm telling you now, the Saint is going to faint when he finds out! He's been pestering me to do this for YEARS!

  2. The New Year can kiss my ass.
    No one wants to see an add for this pop up in their in-box.



    Why Fannie, you're thinking to yourself, that's not SUCH a bad nightgown. Well that's because you have not yet read the description:


    Hot Flash V-Neck Sleepshirt
    "Better Sleeping Through Science
    Busy days call for restful nights, and Hot Flash Sleepwear helps you get your just desserts. An advanced process, which blends moisture-wicking polyester with silky bamboo-based rayon, builds-in patented Heat Release Technology to move moisture out and away from your body almost instantly."

    And that's not all. Evidently there is an entire line of sleepwear designed for women just.like.me. But is this what I need to find out at the dawn of the New Year? I think not. Sheesh, a girl could get a complex!


In any event, Happy New Year to you and yours. May 2009 bring you joy, peace, happiness and a sweat free nights sleep!

Or, you could save money and sleep in UnderArmour-it's the same technology. I know lots about this because I have a 40 years old stepsister in early menopause from chemo.

Happy New Year!

Do I look pale? I just revived after fainting from your admission that you have never had an eye exam.

As someone who has worn glasses and/or contacts since the age of seven, that is inconceivable to me. INCONCEIVABLE! How wonderful it must be to wake up in the morning, open your eyes...and SEE.

I'm happy for you that you have lived so long without one (did that come out as a compliment? it did in my head) but...call tomorrow. Schedule the exam. It's not like it will hurt or probe private places.

Oh, there was a recent time in the 1990's=my 40's that I would have KILLED for that nightgown!

My husband begged me to turn off the A/C in December in frigid Massachusetts!

Happy Hotflash-Free New Year!

Great resolution! A hot flash nightie? Good grief!
