I am puzzled why some world leaders use the word usher for the coming of the New Year. Anyway, the New Year is here and as usual all, I assume, leaders of governments have provided good words of hope and realities to come for 2011.
Also, it is quite probable that Ivory Coast, with two presidents, may have been the only country in the world with double New Year wishes from their presidents. It deserves an entry in the Guinness book of world records.
Fireworks lit up the sky in most prosperous countries. Groups bombed Christian churches in dumb-dumb countries. State sponsored happiness, I live in such place, probably made a brisk business by fining people making noise and toasting glasses full of alcohol in public places after 11pm.
Ah! I understand, they probably meant “hush” the New Year.
I gave a try to a crystal ball to predict the future. I lit up a candle to call the spirit and stood naked in front of it for purity, held a plastic bottle of Agua Florida Cologne in my right hand to facilitate the translation of osmosis transfer from the spiritual universe and in my left hand held the lyrics of the Auld Lang Syne and sung.
Nothing happened for five minutes. I stopped and put on two basic pieces of garments to cover the top and the mid-part of my body, closed the curtains, turned off the light and tried again and then … I saw the future for 2011. However, I understand it is greatly influenced by the site the request is made.
Sorry, together with the spirit I stand halfway naked in Africa;
I have to stop here, the New Year spirit is feeding me with too many information. Anyway, it told me the rest of the leaders on the African continent will do well. They will and have hired public relation companies to make up stories they are not 200% but only 100% corrupt.
The average African citizenry will work very hard, as usual, and stay in tatters for 2011.
