2009 Predictions

Happy New Year!

It seems to me as if my first blog post of 2009 ought to recognize the start of a fresh, new year. However, since I am lacking in anything profound to say, I have consulted with the ever-knowing Mindula Oblongatta for some predictions for the coming year. Here is what I got:

Mindula Oblongatta's Predictions for 2009

Cost-cutting measures get so severe that GM engineers are forced to burn coffee-room waste to generate enough heat and light to work in. This leads to the invention of new alternative energy sources that save the company and reduce our countries dependence on fossil fuels.

The economy crumbles even further rendering the US dollar worthless. Scrapbooking paper emerges as the new currency. Major shift of wealth ensues.

The new US president tries really hard but eventually gives up on trying to run the country and takes up selling car magnets instead. The government collapses and rebel groups take over. The Glenmoor Gals expand their reigning power.

Mindy finally cracks the code of communication of the Cranes of Powell Lake. They are actually aliens from another planet, planning their attack. In a fortuitous break, Mindy discovers their taste for mini-donuts, and is able to negotiate a trade of donuts for a peaceful co-existence.

Aunt Chris starts a blog of her own, and Kathy and Mindy leave clever comments on it.

So what do you think? Any possibilities there? Feel free to add your own.

Dear Mindula: Very entertaining blog, but I don't want to blog, even though it might mean clever, profound, communicative comments from people that I want to hear from. Happy New Year! Blog on! Maybe I have a secret diary that you will stumble upon someday after my demise that could be published then, making you rich.
Aunt Chris
