2012 Voices Year In Review

Posted in Holiday, Nonsense with tags , , , , , on December 31, 2012 by Bob

Do I mean I am reviewing my year 2012 or that I heard 2012 voices this year that I am reviewing? It is questions like that just asked that make me question my own sanity some days. Anyhoo, here we are at the end of another year. I don’t have best of lists, mainly there aren’t that many things I have done that I have done, seen, listened to or otherwise enjoyed enough times to come up with a best of list. I did however have a few highlights this year that are worth mentioning to the rest of the voices in my brain.

Highlight #1 – I finally was able to break free of the bonds of the crappy job that was holding me back for quite a while. True, the choice was not entirely mine but still, it was probably the best thing that ever happened to me. I just wish I had realized it sooner.

Highlight #2 – The very day after highlight #1, we welcomed into this world our little dude! Alexander Dallas joined our family and we couldn’t be happier. The other great thing about #1 was that because of the timing, I was able to spend the entire 2 months of Mrs. Voices’ maternity leave at home with her and our newest little voice.

Highlight #3 – Almost as soon as the “paternity leave” was running out, I acquired new employment. More money, better people, better bosses and a far superior cafeteria.

Highlight #4 – Tori moved to the day care that is right across the street from where I work. Hours of commuting time saved per week.

Highlight #5 – I got a few predictions correct on my celebrity death watch. Morbid I know, but big deal for me.

Highlight #6 – We did NOT win any of the giant lottery drawings this past year. It would have only ruined our lives by letting us live in unrelenting comfort for the rest of our lives.

Highlight #7 – I got to spend an absolutely wonderful Christmas with family. Christmas morning with our newest voice and Tori having her first Christmas being aware of what was going on was the best thing ever!

Those were the biggies. Good year overall, here is hoping that 2013 sees more good things happen, more reality TV get canceled and everyone gets everything that they deserve in the new year.

 

As a blatant self promotion, be sure to tune in over the next few days when I will be posting the Death Watch 2013 predictions and a few other fun things. Now, go out, party all night and pretend you care about the football games tomorrow through your massive hangovers.

 

 

End Of Line

The world won’t end Friday. Not literally anyway. However, maybe we wouldn’t be so bad off if it did. Or has it already in some ways? I mean look at just a few of the things that are happening around us that are harbingers of doom:

–          People of Walmart

–          Kardashians

–          Justin Bieber

–          Honey Boo Boo

–          The X-Factor

–          Christina Aguilera’s fashion choices

–          The new Instagram TOS

–          Vin Diesel in a remake of Kojak

These are dark times indeed. Makes me think maybe the world needs some kind of reboot. The problem is, how far back to we reboot to? If we don’t go back far enough, we risk living through the Disco era again. If we go too far, we lose indoor plumbing and “a priest and a rabbi walk into a bar” jokes.

Would it be better if we went back to a time where Duck Dynasty is the norm? Should we keep moving forward and push technology to the point where we can enter “the grid”? I don’t know if either of these things would solve the ills of society but I am sure that something has to change so that I can be comfortable raising my children in the world. If doomsday is that thing, then let the pulse reboot the world and let’s get to rebuilding.

On a side note

 

Does my hair seem darker today?
