LETTERS FROM STEVO...Is it really 2009? Relax, a bunch of dead people say the end of the world is 3 years away!

So the earth has revolved around the sun one more time...Excellent! Let's celebrate like it's a miracle this has occurred! I have a hunch it's going to do it a few more times before its all said and done...just call it a hunch. I keep seeing this History Channel advertisement for a show about all the alleged prophecies for the end of the world in the year 2012... The Maya's, Nostradamus (no Thornton clan, I didn't say Nordstrom's...relax, there's no sale going on). I have a feeling Nostradamus is going to lose what little credibility he has left in 2013...we can probably quit talking about the Maya around that time as well.

I don't do new years resolutions as I'm not really a goal oriented person (I wander aimlessly thru life and occasionally happen upon success). With that being said, let's look at some New Year's resolutions and goals for Stevo & friends in 2009!

- Craig "Curlz for the Gurlz" Thornton did a 3 minute plank the other day at the gym...impressive! He has resolved to up that time to a 5 minute plank by year's end.

- Amy resolves to let Stevo out of the doghouse for the first time in almost 9 years and finish her memoir titled, "Living with Stevo"

- Peyton resolves to be gentler with grandma Shirley's chick casualties either!

- Mya resolves to conquer the world with her wit, charm, indominable spirit and talent for B.S.!

- Bud resolves to learn all the dance moves from "Mama Mia"

- Ma Busch resolves to put an end to her QVC purchasing habit and move to more modernized online shopping...does Hobby Lobby have a website?

- Big Dave resolves to become the next Milt Friedman/Warren Buffet/Adam Smith

- The Thornton/Carlson clan resolves to single handedly keep Nordstrom's in business through this tough economy

- Brother Mike resolves to stop "surfing the web" and sleeping so much and to finally take his wife out on a real date

Last but certainly not least, Stevo resolves to do the following:

- Provide more fodder for Amy's above mentioned memoir
- play on the church basketball team, "You tell 'em I'm comin'...and I'm bringin' HELL with me!!!"
- Go a year without buying any shoes
- Make sure Cory finally gets to see "The Godfather"...both I and II...ok, maybe III too!
- And of course, provide you all with more "Letters from Stevo" and "Quickie with Stevo"

I personally would like to see more Quickies with Stevo. I also was wondering who the Maya's were? I have only heard of the Mayans! I have decided you are the best blogger ever!! How can one person be so clever? And best of all, know they are so clever?!?

Traci Anne said...

Haha! Thanks for the laughs! :) What would we do without you!? The resolutions are so fitting! Practically Perfect! Thank you for your wits and such. I hope to blog more like you someday.

Go Nordstrom! I bet you can't go an entire year without any shoe purchases.

Renee said...

Does Amy really need any more fodder? I think she's already got enough material for an epic tome...the likes of which Tolstoy never imagined.

Stevo, get real. Ma Busch will never leave QVC. I am actually surprised they haven't invited her to guest host a segment. I can actually see her showcasing the all new "ultimotion"...Her slogan can be "it's like a Wii except that it doesn't come with interchangeable games...that's way too confusing".

we'll have to verify with Amy but aren't they all quickies with Stevo?

Steffan Busch!! Holy cow! I found your blog through Dave & Lyndley. You haven't changed a bit! My dad will be excited that I found you! Life is good for the Whipple Clan...we are all grown up and have families of our own. Amanda has 3 kids, Me just 1 and Jared has 2. Wesley graduates this year and Kaitlin is looking like she is going to be getting married soon.

Kirtland is still the same...Nothing has changed! I am glad that you haven't either. You are still your funny self. Good ol day at the Ice Plant were fun w/ you! You have a beautiful family and sounds like you are having the time of your life! Keep in touch!

Megan (Whipple) Stewart
