Happy New Year...

...May your day be cheery, your year be prosperous, and your hangover be gentle.

True to form, my NYE plans were solidified around 5:30pm yesterday. I rang in the new year atop a roof somewhere in Brooklyn, where the proprietor had made his own ball to drop, there was a multitude of cheap fireworks, and I was inexplicably wearing these:



Funny, I just remembered... at some point a guy I didn't know said "Hey, why are her 2008 glasses prescription? Your eyes look huge!" at which point I took the glasses off and he said "Oh, nevermind."

Yeah, they called me "Bug Eyes" and other such witty monikers when I was a kid. They were just jealous.

All in all, it was a good New Years Eve. And remarkably enough I made it safely home via mass transit. Even more remarkably, I came home ALONE.

As opposed to last year where I ventured to the home of some investment banker who dished out a heavy helping of the crazy over breakfast the next morning.

This year the only creature bugging me to wake up in the morning was my cat. Which was a good thing, as I'd managed to fall asleep with my contacts in.

I was, perhaps, just a wee bit hammered.

I fed the cat and went back to bed, and now here I am. A bit groggy, but thus far my hangover has been surprisingly mild. Perhaps that means 2008 will be gentle with me too? We shall see...

We shall see.

Only one more year of those glasses with the perfect 0s in the middle for eyes! Then maybe they can do something sort of askew with the 0s in 2010, and what are they going to do in 2011? It's all very unclear.

Let's hope! My hangover wasn't that horrible either. I mean, I vividly remember explaining to everyone that I "just wasn't drunk."

Except - this morning I woke up with a mild headache indicating I *had* to have consumed quite a bit more alcohol than I realized.

Oops.

Anyway, here's to 2008. Let's hope it brings good things.

I also made my New Years plans about 6 hours before midnight, but it was a great night anyhow. Sadly, I didn't get any of those cool glasses.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Cheers to 2008!

A bit late (my heads been under the ground lately - just call me ostrich), but HAPPY NEW YEAR!

P.S. I'd have so worn those glasses. I'm cool like that.
