Figurings for 2009

I have some things rolling around in my cranium that I'm going to figure out by the end of 2009. It's just one of my many items on the to-do list for the year.

I'm wondering how long Obama will be in office before the armchair geniuses decide they don't like him.

I'm going to figure out how screws unscrew themselves. Happens to me all the time. Things fall on me 'cause of that.

I'm going to hook up a video camera to help me figure out how those electric cords work themselves into a tangle that can never be undone. Ever. And you get a shock when you try to undo said tangle. Ouch.

In NY State, I see signs that say "Speed Limit 55" alongside ones that say "Minimum Speed 40". I'm going to figure out if anyone ever got a ticket for driving less than 40 mph, and if they call that "slowing".

There's a musical group called The Killers, and they currently have a song out called "Human" which contains the lyrical question, "Are we human, or are we dancer?" I'm going to figure out what the heck that means.

This Christmas, UggsAustralia actually had Uggs available for sale. That you could buy. And Amazon.com actually had what I needed in stock, AND shipped on time. I'm going to figure out why other companies think that's bad for business.

There are a lot more things to figure out, but I don't want to tax my brain too much in such a limited time, you know?

I'm sure there will be more. There always is.


  1. If you figure out that song lyric, let me know. LOL

    Sounds like your cranium is going to get a work-out in the upcoming year! :)


  2. Dear Jimmy I wish you a Very "Happy New Year" and everything you wish for yourself and your family may come true ~ Ally xxx

  3. Hope you have a great New Year and that 2009 is a good year for your family.

  4. Sounds like you'd better get to brainin' about all that stuff. Time's a-wastin'! I hope 2009 is a good year for you.

  5. LOL! This is the Jimmy we know and love! Let us know when you have it all figured out :D

  6. I actually know someone who got pulled over because they were going below the minimum speed!

    Have a good new year!

  7. Hey--when you find the answers to these, let us know. Some of these still have me scratching my head.

  8. Wait a second...a new year is coming? Well, I'll be! ;)

    I better start some figurings of my own!

  9. LOL you are thinking waaaaaaaay to much. Happy New Year my friend may 2009 bring you wonderful things

    Good figurings....would love to know if you get some answers. But you just might be pleasantly surprised with Obama...ya never know.

    OH...and I'm just figuring why I haven't received those Uggs yet. Hmmmm...



  11. We've wondered the same thing at our house ~ 'are we human or are we dancers'? We go around singing it, trying to figure it out. Let me know when you do.


  12. I got new Uggs for Christmas! I'll take a pic and post just for you! I know how you love boots! ;)


I love comments. I won't lie about that!
