Yes, my experience with my 2007 predictions have not discouraged me from getting back on that horse and going back out on a limb (hmmm… I’m beginning to get an idea what I did wrong) with Wendell’s Fearless and Feckless Prognostications for 2008…
Ah, . I try to minimize my own personal use of it, except when you just gotta quote George Carlin, which is not that difficult when you realize how many euphemisms there are for it.

Driving in San Luis Obispo (SLO) along the Los Osos Valley Road (LOVR) – we have the cutest acronyms in the world around here – I found myself behind one of the pumptrucks of Al’s Pumping Co., kind of our equivalent to Rothschild’s Sewage and Septic Sucking Services of Possum Lake, Canada.

But what made me LOL on the road was painted on the back of the tank-a-truck, a design made to look like a California license plate with the message: SHT2GO. Obviously Al had requested that as a custom plate and the DMV told him “SHT NO!”, so he did the next best thing.

The latest rambling bloggery from America’s Most Deserving Quiz Show Millionaire Ken Jennings touches on several of my favorite hot buttons. (Oooh, that tickles!) First the title, which is an accurate quote from his song “(The Angels Wanna Wear My) Red Shoes”. Which is pretty good, because I was foolish enough to purchase and display a bumper sticker in the ’80s that said “I USED TO BE DISGUSTED / NOW I’M JUST AMUSED” which I am now rather ashamed of.
