Happy New Year denizens of the Skipahsphere! I hope your 2016 is off to a rocking start and whatever potentially flawed New Year’s resolutions you may have made when on your fifth glass of champagne haven’t collapsed yet. Personally I made zero resolutions so there will be no letting myself down on failed promises. My weight is good and I’m not remotely ready to give up Diet Dr. Pepper so December 31, 2015 came and went without much fanfare for yours truly. Who am I kidding it was date night with Miss Madison! A raucous evening at the movies and about the best thing southern Indiana can call Italian fare….The Olive Garden!
Since there wasn’t any new screenings of Bridget Jones’ Diary or a special showing of The Notebook, we instead fell face first into the Disney hype machine and opted for the new Star Wars movie. SPOILER ALERT: Please skip forward to the next paragraph to hear about the time I partied with N’Sync and taught Justin Timberlake how to “Bring sexy back.” Skipah’s take is it was great movie, a reboot of the original (or Episode IV if you attended the movie dressed like a wookie), and I look forward to the next one. Miss Madison is now holding me at gunpoint to take her to see Sisters, but I’m all about compromise post-divorce. We had a great evening other than the long wait at the Olive Garden, but I made sure to get my fill of the all you can eat salad and breadsticks for making us wait so long! Other endeavors of the long weekend included homemade chicken parmesan and trip to a local dive bar for what was described as “the best burger in town!”
Believe me the burger is about the only thing this place had going for it!
Not pictured: The older lady who evidently thought her constant staring at me would win me over!
I opted for her as my date instead of the older lady!
We rang in the New Year back in the Madison, Indiana offices of Skipah’s Realm debating how crazy Jenny McCarthy is, how Ryan Seacrest is the luckiest man in the world, and xeroxing our asses on the company copy machine. Two of those three are true statements, and I’m currently looking for an office manager to find me a good deal on a used copy machine since the plate glass somehow got cracked!
The kick off to 2016 has brought a few changes in my life; I mentioned last week that I am shifting corporate headquarters to Madison, Indiana. That transition is going great, other big news these days is Skipah’s Realm is now an official business. I’ve kidded around about Skipah’s Realm, LLC and various other business entities on this site. Well no more, I’m now officially president and CEO of Skipah’s Realm with the great state of Indiana! Skipah’s Realm has an operating profit between a used toilet salesman commission and a Jewish dry cleaner operating in Iran, but I don’t really care about that. I’m now officially a small business owner!
With any luck I will have an initial IPO (that’s initial public offering Kentuckian) sometime in the year 2043, and by then I hope to be offering my millions to anybody willing to share my message on Facebook. Oh wait that was already done by Mr. Zuckerberg. In the meantime I’ll keep pounding away on my laptop, praying to the Powerball gods (half a billion tonight), and just enjoying life in general with Miss Madison and Sloane.
About it for now, since my new little entrepreneurship doesn’t have the overhead to swing a six figure accountant to keep my taxes straight I better get to reading up on Indiana tax code and get all my figures straight. I would hate to get audited my first year in business!
