So what did YOU do for New Year’s Eve?
For yet another year there was no party, no crowds, and no special kiss at midnight for me. And no regrets either. Okay, well maybe just a few little ones about the lack of a kiss, but I’ll live. :P
Instead of braving crowds of drunken revelers, I went to my best friend’s house. Betty (Mistress Violet), her husband, their two boys, and I made our own party. Complete with party hats, noise makers, and champagne for toasting. No one panic. I only had two very tiny sips.
I arrived at their house about 8:30. Betty and I spent some time catching up since it had been nearly two weeks since we last saw each other. Yes we do talk daily via text messages, emails, IM’s, and phone calls, but that’s not the point. :P
Then we rounded up the guys and played the American Idol karaoke game. Yeah, you read that right. I managed to wriggle my way out of playing. For the first round. I was not so lucky for rounds two & three. Yeah, you read that right too. I sang. In front of people. Without evidence of force.
You know what is even crazier? I WON!!! Both rounds two & three. No kidding. Here’s proof of my round two winning…
We also played Dance, Dance Revolution. Okay, they played. I did get a legitimate pass on that one due to the ongoing back trouble that hasn’t quite been taken care of yet. Still it was sure fun to watch.
In the midst of our revelry, we paused to watch the ball drop & have a champagne toast. (Remember there is no panicking allowed here.) What did we toast to? Good health & happiness. And love. Always love. Hmmm, maybe I’ll get that kiss next year. Maybe. :)
