The Year in Review - 2008

Well, everyone else seems to be doing this post, and I didn't want to feel left out.

It always amazes me to get to the end of a year, and wonder what the next year will bring. This year, I've decided to do something special for my year in review.

Click here.

You've just been Rick-Rolled! If that isn't the best thing about 2008, I don't know what is. I don't even know if it is a 2008 phenomenon, or if someone thought about it earlier. I've seen it before when you click links on websites, but the other night, something happened to me that I didn't realize would or could happen.

I was Rick-Rolled on my cell phone.

One of Jen's boys, Chris, is apparently obsessed with calling people on their cell phones, and then playing this tune for them. When I answered my phone and heard nothing by the sweet strains of Rick Astley, I did what anyone else would do...I giggled hysterically and yelled to no one, "I've been Rick-Rolled on my cell phone!"

14 year-old boys are fun, aren't they? I've heard they eat a lot though, so I'm kinda glad I have my grocery bill right now, and not Jen's. Thanks for the giggle Chris...and YES, I did blog about it!

Ok, ya got me. I totally didn't get it so I asked my husband "What's 'Rick Rolled'?" He laughed his arse off.

Happy New Year!

I'd never heard of it either! I live under a rock. Happy New Year!

Chris will be so happy he made the blog world and not on his mom's site.

Happy New Year.

Oh god, Rick Astley! Whatever happened to pompadour hair on men? I really hate that "I just rolled out of bed and I don't need to change my wife-beater" look. Gimmee styled big hair and Buddy Holly glasses anyday.
