Again traditionally, we give our new year message with a song of Iron Maiden like previous years. I do not write its lyric this year. I can just say that, music and lyrics are very good, as always. 😎
And, I am thinking how the year of 2017 passed. I see that one thing came forward prominently:
I realize that I was plenty updated in 2017!
Life on the planet earth has always kept me energetic. In 2017, I was more energetic because I was constantly updated.
“Updating” is not my statement. This is the new name of the “price increase” to almost every price pulls out of the public’s pocket, from the roads to the bridges toll, from the electricity to the milk or to the tomato (in a very wide range) by the government wing generally used this year. The government’s economy authorities does not say “price increase” anymore; instead of “increased” they use “updated.” The word of “increased” almost will be removed from the literature.
I’ve also had the pleasure of updating myself abundantly!
I didn’t miss the opportunity!
For example, when I learned how to live on with a salary increase of up to maximum 8% per year, I have been updated with pleasing.
While the salary was raised up to maximum 8%, I was happier when hearing the 50% or more updating of electricity bill, food prices, transportation expenses or etc at the same time. (according to consumer associations calculations, for example, 51 Turkish liras are the taxes of 100 Turkish liras electricity bill) Because I had been updated again!
When I was in the update mode, I’ve found myself by thinking on how it would be like to bring Tesla to this time and to make free electricity for the public. Time machine is the only way to bring him to this era! If I would be updated so much, maybe I could invent a time machine!
I thought how I might be more up-to-date, while I am more updated. Because, you are so much updated that you are feeling yourself like brand-new beyond time!
For example, due to even straw was imported from abroad countries (and according to news of November, the prices of straw were raised 100% in 3 months), the price of milk of the cows who ate straw has also “increased”; sorry Updated!
But wait a minute! The cows are also imported from Germany, Austria and etc.
I wonder, do they milk the cowIs on the ships while they came; I do not know. Even thinking about it, has updated me.
When the price of raw milk has updated 20 Turkish kurush (about 7 cents), caused to update milk products such as cheese with 40% plus price at markets, updated me more! For example, right now the news said that the updating champion was butter in 2017; January 2017 1kg butter was 25 Turkish liras–December 2017 1 kg same brand butter is 65 Turkish lira.
I am never mentioning the price of gasoline, as long as I started to use public transport more, I realized that I was not considering gasoline money anymore.
But then when “updated” price comes to public transport, I think, the best is bicycle. If it would not be, we will run.
I do not know how can I be updated while I run, but I am certain to find a way!
Next to all of them, it was the bread that disappointed me! I wanted to be updated with it, but it did not. Even last month, a news has fallen to the newspapers: “230 thousand tons of wheat will be imported” (No, Anatolia is not a “wheat silo” of the region anymore, until ten years ago, it was; like eveything, the wheat comes from abroad.) I was so happy when saw that news! I was waiting a “great” update with the new bread prices! But it has not happened! Authorities reduce the weight of the bread instead of the update! So, a lower weight bread was going to be taken with the same price. It was a complete disappointment for me!
By the way,
I am not a selfish extraterrestrial, so I have not forgotten my earthling friends, while I was constantly updated. Of course they are being updated too. But I thought maybe they did not notice this yet, and I did them a favor.
Every new year eve, I buy books as present. But the book prices have also been updated almost 30% in this year. This year I’ve bought “one” book(novel) for two friends; it was expensive because the book was at the updated price. I divided down the middle of the book in two, copied it’s back and face covers via printer. I wrote “Volume One” on the first part, and “Volume Two” on the other. I glued the covers face to both. I gave the first volume (that is actually the first half of the book) to an earthling friend, and the second volume(rest of the book) to the other. I updated them as well and strengthened their friendship by providing them to exchange books with each other. Haha!
-What are you planning to do next year, Migo? Will you give the pages of the book one by one to the people!
-Hmmm, maybe, why not WD? That’s a good idea.
-It’s not a good idea, Migo! You alien, this is not a good idea! I cannot believe I will spend another year with you, Migo! Damn!
-So, don’t we wish “happy new year” for us?
-Let’s just say that! It would bring end your crap at least! Happy New Year, my beloved readers! Also, you see what I am dealing with!
-Happy new year my earthling friends! We know that we will be updated more in 2018. But even if it would be with the updates, the good part is that we still be all together in peace and good health. 😉
Mutlu Yeni Yıllar! — С новым годом! — Happy New Year!
