Countdown: 1!

11:59 pm - Jason G. - Commentary

Oh my goodness… only one minute left to go. I’m so nervous I have to go to the bathroom… I’ll be back in about 5 minutes… Oh, wait… I’ll wait until 2007 to go…

Only one minute left to finalize those resolutions for the next 365 days of your life. Better be conservative, this is not a leap year, and you’ll have to accomplish your resolutions in only 365 days this year.

Ok, really, you have to accomplish your resolutions in the first 12 days of the new year… by the second weekend of January, you’ll be off buried in work or chasing something shiny… Better set the bar low — in fact, if you can put your resolution in terms of something you’ve already accomplished, you’ll really be in line for success…

Countdown: 2!

11:58 pm - Jason G. - Commentary

Two more minutes left in 2006, and I can tell you’re paying attention.  Good blog audience…  Sit!  Stay!  Don’t be distracted by that big glittering ball that is starting to fall on your TV, it’s not as tasty as the countdown-goodness here on this website!

Countdown: 8!

11:57 pm - Jason G. - Commentary

8? WTF Mr. JCG3!?!? Weren’t we down to the 3 in the whole counting-down thing?

Yes, my friendly blog audience… We were at “3”, and I was just checking to make sure you were paying attention…

Countdown: 4!

11:56 pm - Jason G. - Commentary

4 more minutes!  Jumpin’ jimminy…  the West Wing featured the abbreviation “POTUS” in the pilot episode way back in 1999.  Back when the idea of a democratic president didn’t seem so foreign, the Left Wing…  err…  I mean the West Wing showcased a bunch of young liberals running the country.  Now, that’s what I call entertainment.

Disclaimer: I am a fan of the West Wing and think that Steven Soderbergh’s genius was so strong in the early years of West Wing that he should be given a special presidential waiver to be able to continue using cocaine as long as he continues producing TV shows.  I also believe he never would have been busted for coke if the West Wing was about a Republican White House…

Countdown: 5!

11:55 pm - Jason G. - Commentary

Five minutes left…  Those of you who have watched a TV, read a newspaper, or blogged on the internet would know that our recently departed President Gerald Ford was the 38th President of the United States.  For a follow-up question, what TV drama series recently introduced the public to the abbreviation “POTUS” (President of the United States)?

Countdown: 6!

11:54 pm - Jason G. - Commentary

Six more minutes left of 2006.  Let’s do another discussion topic…  this one slightly more mainstream than Belarus’s existence…  Who was the 38th president of the United States of America?

Countdown: 7!

11:53 pm - Jason G. - Commentary

7 minutes to go…  And, yes kids, Belarus is a real country.  The CIA says it is.  Just because it’s not in a Borat movie doesn’t mean that the country isn’t real…

Countdown: 8!

11:52 pm - Jason G. - Commentary

Wow, those minutes are going by much slower than I thought…  let’s see what we can do before the next minute…  Here’s a topic: is the country of Belarus a real country?  Discuss amongst yourselves…

Countdown: 9!

11:51 pm - Jason G. - Commentary

9 more minutes to go…

Countdown: 10!

11:50 pm - Jason G. - Commentary

It’s only 10 minutes now until the new year is upon us, and I’m looking forward to 2007 in a lot of different ways.  To kick off the celebration, count down with me to the new year…
