January 4, 2016: I’m writing these words to you fine people in the midst of what has been a hellish day, to say the least.
The wife had a sleepless night for all the wrong reasons; a minor dental emergency denied her Morpheus’ touch. We got her to the dentist in the morning and thankfully, the visit went off without a hitch. But now she’s ravenous and solid food is not her friend.
The streets of Niagara Falls have definitely been anything but immune to Jack Frost’s touch, friends, and so driving has required a deft touch.
And work? Well, work has been a nightmare on French toast. So far, I’m four for ten in the luggage call department.I’ve served…
- Young, drunk punks without a single shred of gratitude.
- Australian cougars who couldn’t bring themselves to even speak to me or even cast a glance my way, never mind tip me.
- Middle-aged couples who are bitter for reasons that have absolutely nothing to do with me – but try telling them that.
- A lesbian couple that gave lesbian couples a bad name. Why can’t all lesbians be like Ellen? She’s adorable!
Get the picture, readers? My day has sucked harder than Ginger Lynn at the height of her pornographic powers. And that’s pretty hard.
However… I just clicked on one of my favorite blogs, Suzie Speaks.
My day has just turned around faster than a Kardashian’s neck when they hear a camera shutter click. (It’s funny because the Kardashians are publicity whores who would literally shrivel up and die without their fame.)
Getting back to Suzie, she has selected yours truly as the fourth Top Blogger to Follow in 2016, an honor that I shall wear proudly for the rest of my days.
Suzie is extremely generous and willing to overlook my status as a hack, apparently. In her own words:
His posts are hilarious, poignant and highly observant – well worth a read! Indeed, I’m Hooked! (see what I did there!) Enjoy!
Not only is Suzie the goodest of all good eggs, she is the creator of a virtual force of nature. Namely, #SundayBlogShare – which, as anyone who has ever scanned Twitter on a Sunday knows, allows bloggers to share their posts with the world-at-large. It is now one of the biggest blog sharing parties each weekend, trending in countries all over this big ole mudball.
As Forrest Gump would say, it’s a household name.
I love Twitter, and so I cannot possibly articulate how much I admire what this lovely lady has achieved thus far. If I ever grow up, I want to be half as cool as Suzie.
Honestly, she was willing to leave behind a promising career as the top-rated female Jell-O wrestler in Slovakia to regale us with posts that reflect her mood (which is usually surly) and experiences. Suzie81Speaks covers topics ranging from books (some even have words to go with the pictures), film (and not just films about midgets looking for love at the grocery store), thoughts (the thoughts that won’t get her arrested, that is), daily life, teaching, friendship, relationships and things Suzie finds amusing. And her blogging/writing tips are of the highest quality. She’s one of the smartest people I’ve never met.
By the way, if you don’t find the things that Suzie shares amusing? Don’t tell her! She’ll hunt you down and put you in a wrasslin’ hold that will have you begging for the sweet release of death.
You can also find Suzie on various country’s Most Wanted lists and the following social media accounts:

All right, that should cover the debt I owe Suzie (never bet on Yuogoslavian miniature horse racing with Suzie; the girl’s a savant), and so I shall bid you good day.
See you in the lobby, kids…
