I’m Finishing.

Some of Mrs. Wigglebottom’s favorite people in the world are downstairs.  I came upstairs to get a wireless signal (thanks again, Lemmings in Leiderhausen) and pay bills.

Five minutes later, there’s Mrs. W. sitting at the top of the stairs, just hanging out.

I think it’s impossible to feel more well-liked than when a dog likes you.  And for a dog to figure that her place is at the top of the stairs where she can keep an ear on what you’re doing and an eye on any evil-doers who might try to come up the stairs to get you?

That’s someone who likes me, right there.

Happy New Year, y’all.  Or as the waiter at the restaurant tonight tried to get us to say, Feliz Oyo  Nuevo.  I think.  Oyo.  Isn’t that eye?  Happy New Eye?  That can’t be right. 

Did I ever tell y’all that I took Russian in college and I worked with a Russian and a Ukranian dude at the cafeteria and they used to want me to practice with them and I never wanted to because I felt stupid, but one day, I yelled out “Ya conchoo.” meaning, I’m finishing, leaving unsaid what I was finishing, which was serving up a pan of lasagna and so I needed more.

They thought this was hilarious because, in Russian slang, back in the early 90s, to say you were finishing without specifying what meant that you were having an orgasm.

Ah, well.

Ya conchoo this blog post, and later, after everyone’s asleep, maybe I’ll conchoo just for kicks to ring in the new year, or eye, or both.  Whatever.

  1. B, if lasagna turns you on that much, no time of depression, frustration, or confusion will ever have to last long. Happy New Year or S Novim Godim or whatever.

  2. That would be Feliz ANO (with the squiggly over the n) Nuevo, and a happy one to you too! Me, I’m drinking and mimosas and just finished watching the Rose Bowl Parade, so I’m currently a very happy girl.Coo-coo-conchoo!

  3. Ano with a tilde. That makes much more sense than oyo. And I’m sure that’s probably what he said, I just misheard.
