The Beginning of the End

Hey! It's Thursday and you know what that means!

Hint: It means it's the day after Wednesday (when the Douglas Budget comes out) and you can go there and read my column that I forgot to link to yesterday.

In this week's column you will find a super secret big announcement that will affect each and every one of you.

Well, affect may be not be the right word. But I'm pretty sure it's not effect. Although it will have an effect on you because you will be affected by it. Or not. I will be affected by the effects of this affectation but most likely you will just go about your daily life without any effects whatsoever.

Possibly maybe.

*Björk interlude*

"Who knows what's going to happen? Lottery or car crash Or you'll join a cult."

Anyway, you should go there and read it and see what all the fuss* is about. Also I forgot how much I love Björk's voice. And she has that voice live and not just in the studio and my mind kind of explodes with the magicfulness** of it all.

*there is no fuss
**magicfulness is not a word, but I like it and spellcheck suggested McGovern which is not right at all.


  1. Wow that's big news. Congrats on the beginning of a new chapter and best of luck in your new endeavors!

    P.S. You are still going to continue with this blog though right? Because if you stopped, that would have an affecting effect on us. And not affecting in a good way. It would be a bad effecting.

    1. Thanks Christian!

      I'm really having a hard time envisioning life after trucking. I'm excited and sad at the same time, plus freaking out just a little. What if I'm not fit for society again!?? Of course that assumes I fit in at some point. :)

      Plus, this blog has kind of point and what will the point be when I'm just plain old me at home? And now I'm having a nervous breakdown. Yay for me!

  2. I'm thrilled for you and wish you (& himself) the very best! Change can be a good thing; it is a given in this life, anyway, so make the best of it. PLEASE tell me that you will continue to blog in some fashion - you have such a gift!

    1. You're right about that! Change is the only constant. Thanks for the encouragement Ladybug, I'm just taking it one day at a time while in the middle of this mid-life crisis!

  3. oh boy...i haven't gone there yet to read your column...just read these comments and now i am sitting on the edge of my seat...

    effect...affect...always made me THINK to hard...which to i avoid both! ha!

    ok...heading over to Douglas now...

    1. wow stacey! i had a feelin g...from the comments...but i just had to hear it from your mouth...uh...hands...

      what a change!! i have no doubt you'll find lots to continue to complain about...haha...and also lots of NEW stuff to be thankful for. it'll sure be weird to wake up in a BED...a real bed...where you have to WALK to another ROOM to get your coffee!! and your OWN toilet...shower... much to be thankful for, eh!

      good luck....
      the countdown begins! :)

    2. Ahhh, my own bathroom. Now that is truly something to look forward to! And coffee in my own kitchen without having to walk across 2 football fields of trucks, then fight for space at the coffee counter, then *gasp* interact with a person to pay for it??!

      Hey, this mid-life crisis thing isn't sounding so bad!

  4. Whaaaaaat??? Obviously I'm behind in my reading, and I can hardly believe what my eyes are telling me (my eyes are known liars). I think it speaks volumes about your open, funny, personable writing that somehow my first reaction was, "Well I need to call her up, I can't believe this is the first I'm hearing of it!" and then I realized that, duh, I don't know you in real life. Well this is real life too, I suppose, but you know what I mean. You can tell your announcement has had a real effect on me. Yes, I'm quite affected indeed! You'd better stick around - I love your travel stories, but there'll be just as much absurdity to write about at home (probably fewer stuffed animals tied to trees, but still...)

    1. I love that! What a compliment, thank you.

      I can't believe what a great sense of community I get out of blogging and to think that a few years ago I didn't even know what one was! I wish I had started sooner, I feel like I'm just getting the hang of it now.

      I will continue, probably. I just hope I don't have to start tying up stuffed animals to trees myself!


Do what?
