Year of The _________

I try to date one girl per year. It just makes it easier when recalling past relationships so I can refer to my relationships as periods in my life. For instance, "Year of The Lisa." It's no coincidence that some of these periods of my life are names of horrific tropical storms.


As I prepare for the New Year, I've done some thinking. More than just the obvious thoughts that run through my head (like the fact that according to the Chinese calendar 2009 is the Year of The Ox which concerns me a little) but really contemplating. I think I just need to be really honest with women: I have NO money and I'm probably not going to age well. I've already reached my peak and it's all downhill from here. I've never been good at picking up on subtle hints so please just tell me what you're thinking. I will remember random things, but sometimes not the things you deem as "important" so cut me some slack....okay, maybe I should stop. I'm just reciting the actual conversations that ended each of the last few historic "periods" of my life.

Ah Tobs, I have many a time thought the same thing. "I am not good at subtle hints so please tell me what you are thinking." Hopefully you will have a good 'Year of...' whoever. :) Here's to a year of a name that hopefully doesn't end in a horrific tropical storm.

Here's to a lack of tropical storm-like disasters in your life in 2009. :-)

Funny...because it's true. And strangely insightful. As is this: http://xkcd.com/513/
