So it’s 2012 now, eh?

As of this moment, this is the third time that I am trying to attempt this post. Right now, I am just longing for sleep. But now for the second time in a row, my post decided to do another magic trick…and disappear on me. Again. I’m surprised this monitor is still in front of me at the moment. It’s actually kind of funny, since my first original post wasn’t that bitter. And in the subsequent ones I can just feel the venom seeping through my fingers into this post as I attempt it for the third and hopefully final time…

So, with this being the new year and all of course I am surrounded by all of this talk of how the ‘end is nigh’ and all of the related jargon (especially amongst my friends). It doesn’t really bother me since I know that they know that it’s just a joke. However, what really gets at me are the people that actually believe that we are living our last year here on earth. I mean purchasing a lifetime supply of peanut butter, napkins, and Pledge wood polish just doesn’t register. And since when did the Mayans gain credibility to determine the end of our time? HMMMM??? They’re not even around anymore!! To me this is just another one of those stupid fads, I guess you can call it, and it’ll pass. On December 22nd, actually, when the rest of the world realizes that it was just another day. It reminds me of the pant sagging that is still prominent in the area where I live.

Anyways, I will continue to enjoy everyday up until that day. And then enjoy the day after. And then the one after that.

On another note, I’m pretty sure the commercials today are planned and produced by infant chimpanzees that are locked up in a soft padded room. Their only means of escape being that they must make a random audience of college students crack a laugh. The only tools to aid them (based on the quality of these commercials) being a typewriter, a timer with a countdown of 45 seconds, copious amounts of sugar, and a man in a Jane Goodall* costume (to intimidate the poor things into coming up with more of these bombin ideas, of course!) Anyways, I was just watching tv when all of a sudden my eyes, ears, hell all of my senses were assaulted by this particular commercial:

It took me a few moments to register what I had just witnessed. The family at the beginning took the cake. I know that my family would never do anything like that in a million years. I’m still trying to figure out what Vanilla Pink is, since I got a brain freeze and I didn’t even have one of their slushys. Props to good marketing I guess. Words won’t do justice to describe this commercial, so I’ll just let you draw your own conclusions.

As for my New Years resolution, I’ll probably keep it at 1280×1024 like always. Haha, if you’ve already heard this one (please just go with it).

So, I’m pretty sure that I got the main points of what I wanted to share. I’m still really irritated that my post vanished faster than hand sanitizer at an engineering convention…But oh well. This better work actually**.

* I don’t have anything against Jane Goodall, I actually really admire her devotion to her causes of animal wellness and conservation.

**And I apologize to anybody getting random post/subjects from me. That is just me trying to figure out why nothing is wanting to comply.
