January - Schmanuary

Dear 2007,

So far, you suck.

Love,

Kristin



Doesn't care that a transformer blew while her mother was emailing a not backed up file containing all 3 of her articles.

But, would like to know if you want to sample her perfume?

I agree! I have already completely broke 2 of my 4 resolutions.

I usually make it until at least June for that. I want a do-over!!!

Kristi said...

You lost three articles? Yikes. I'll give 2007 a good talkin-to. Things will turn around, I promise.

Recovering Wino said...

The champagne's on the way. It will be there by Saturday, I think.

Three articles? Oh, I know how frustrated I get if I lose one piece! Get smashed, will you? I seem to be advising that on a lot of people's blogs these days. Do you think I have a problem?

Oh, The Joys said...

The 2007 Smackdown strikes early. YUCK.

So sorry.

Stephanie A. said...

Ugh. Losing 3 articles is a major drag. I hate when that happens because while I might be able to re-write it with the same idea, it never has the same flavor as the original. Here's hoping that was just a fluke, not foreshadowing into your entire 2007!

Lisa & Jeff said...

I didn't even make any New Year's resolutions....I knew I'd break them so why bother? January sucks.

Mrs. Chicky said...

Oh no! Three articles?! I would have thrown myself off a tall building. However, if someone with that face was offering me "perfume" I would rethink the jumping thing. :)

carrie said...

Shite!!! I meant to spell it like that too. I am so sorry.

Thank you for giving me yet another use for the contents of the princess teapot collection: bath toys!!!

Oh, and I hope that I do not need your "stash" of Dermabond. Hopefully you won't need it either! :)

Eva is cuter with every picture! So sorry about your articles, that is a crap way to start '07!

Connie said...

Ewwww! That bites!

At least it can only get better...$hit! I didn't just say that.

Undercover Angel said...

I don't make resolutions because I know I can't stick to them. I start off faithfully with good intentions but within a month they are long forgotten.

I hope you have a wonderful new year.

Lena said...

I had a physical reaction to that news. I too lost an entire article (only one) last night and sat there staring at the screen for a half hour whispering "Fuck me!".

If I hadn't been drunk it would've been a yell.

Eva looks sassy! I like it.

something blue said...

Oh no! Please don't let it turn out to be the year for teaching lessons the hard way.

Does Eva have any of those small square pieces of paper to spray the perfume on? I'll take two.

Christina_the_wench said...

Ctrl S is your friend. And as long as Sesame Street or Bonnie Bell made it, it should rock.

Nikki said...

oh wow.

You had to be so upset.

It's okay..drink beer. It'll make it all better.

Dan said...

Oh man, that sucks big time. Maybe by reconstructing them you'll end up writing three better articles.

Just trying to look on a the positive side ... if there is one.

Shelley said...

Ooooooooh! Not good. I'm so sorry.

I think Eva might be the most beautiful little girl I have ever seen. She has such a twinkle in her eye and just that special "it" factor that makes people stars!

Lisa and Tate said...

Oh man... that really sucks!!! LOST??? Poor girl!!!


Hugs
Lisa

mamatulip said...

OUCH.

Just...ouch. Sorry 'bout the articles. As a former journalist, I really empathize.

Mr. Fabulous said...

Wow...it can only improve from here!

Lindsey said...

I hate January. All the fun and anticipation of the holidays is over and all that is left are Christmas decorations I am too lazy/depressed to put away. Woe is us.

Pendullum said...

I say we ride out January at Kevin Charnas' house!!!

Kevin Charnas said...

Oh Baby...I'm so sorry, that really does suck.

Eva? Gorgeous as ever, dagghling. and the Christmas photo? It's up in our Living Room.
Thanks, baby-doll-tender-love.

My Best Wishes are here now, so everything is going to be better, okay? You'll see... :)

I am sorry though.

Jodi said...

Ugh, couldn't agree with you more about January. It has sucked for us too. Our septic system went toes up, we found out Chad needs surgery on his foot, and we also discovered we are behind a house payment we didn't know about. *sigh* I am so NOT happy with 2007, and you can tell him I said that! :)

Hope things are looking up for you soon.

Lisa said...

ooooohhhhh. Yeah. That SUCKS. SO sorry.

Jenny said...

Oh, that sucks! You need a drink.

Los said...

The good thing about January is that it will come to an end. I've had a good 2007 so far, thanks to the Eagles.

mollymcmo said...

well i've been writing 2006 still so maybe we can still do a doover?!

that bites, sorry for the lost work

Tori said...

Well you know how much my January sucks...
Let me count the ways....

Dead granny
childless sister
no job
no money....
no blog
February - you asshole - you better have something better up you sleeve...

Jonathon said...

I'd never forgive me computer if that happened to me. Like, ever.
