The Things I Hope To Happen in 2008 Meme

Tagged by Trixie, I'm forced to break away of my exercise routine that is helping me to rapidly lose weight. For my first post of the New Year, here are the eight things that The Chipster would like to see happen in 2008.

And forgive me if a couple of them are very self-serving...

1. A certain book to be published in the Summer leaps to the top of the book charts where it stays for months as the whole county snaps it up, making one modest writer immodestly wealthy.
2. I find an literary agent interested in my comedy.
3. I manage to break out of the debt trap and earn a living (even if it’s moderate) doing what I’m happiest doing: writing things to amuse others.
4. The Other Richard Madeley manages to break out of the debt trap and earn a living doing what he enjoys doing: writing things to amuse others.
5. I find the passion to resume blogging.
6. The government realise how foolish it is to mistreat teachers and abandon all the foolish policies that keep the nation’s educators working until nine o’clock every night.
7. I learn to drive and abandon the bicycle from which I nearly fell under the wheels of a car this evening.
8. Leonard Cohen / Tom Waits / Nick Cave bring out a new album or Andy Kaufman stuns the world by revealing that he never died / Steve Martin returns to performing stand-up.

I hereby tag: Ms. Baroque, Dave Hill, Richard Madeley, Mopsa, and Nige.

I hope that the certain book does well too. And don't you quit, Chippy, I'm gunning back up to start something new.

You've certainly got something for this Madeley, Chip.

Mopsa said...

May all the wishes come true. I will now see if I can come up with some big genie in the bottle wishes for myself. Ta Chip.

i'll certainly buy a copy of the book.

Hope this is a good year for you.

Ms Baroque said...

Chip, may all your dreams come true - except the bad ones of course.

I'll try and do the meme...

Happy New Year!

Why are we still waiting on that book anyway? If amateurs like John Grisham and PG Wodehouse can get published then so can you, pull the finger and thong out man!

Wherefore art thou Romeo?

(Misused quote, but everyone I know regularly uses it this way, and it makes the point. Everything OK in Bangor?)

Mopsa said...

Still washing your thongs, Chip?

Ian Appleby said...

Bangor seems strangely desolate, somehow.

Online Slots Why is gambling, you lose more than win? Chance to win money in casinos more than enough to engage in gambling, many people who want to win extra money for expenses. Casinos offer players a chance to throw their money in gambling!
