Happy New Year!

December 31 is never a very big deal for me, as I spend so much of the rest of my year compromising my health, integrity, and reputation by over-indulging and gluttonously ravaging tables full of food. I could take this day or leave it.

Nick, on the other hand, is pretty much a sixteen-year-old girl, and every time there’s a chance to get spiffy and go to parties, he gets all aflutter and spends extra long on his hair and whines when I suggest that we’d save money by just inviting a couple of other people over to eat food and split a couple of two-sixes. Apparently I don’t know where the line is between festive and sad. So, we’re going out this year. This post could alternately be titled: “Food blogger attempts to squeeze into party dress for NYE. Tears ensue.”

In any event, I wanted to wish you a happy new year. This year has been both awesome and at times kind of a bitch, and so as much as I am a little sad at the passing of time and all of that good crap, it’s nice to start anew, however symbolically. In 2009 we ate well, we laughed, we paid down a chunk of our debt and didn’t acquire any new obligations. We made new friends, kept old ones, and fought with our relatives only the normal amount. In 2010, something amazing might happen. Who knows. And I hope something amazing happens for you.

All the best, and Happy New Year!

  1. We were supposed to go out.

    At about 5pm, we both looked at each other, and said…

    “Do YOU want to go?”

    “Do YOU?”

    Which is why I will, oh so happily, be spending NYE from my couch with my boyfriend and my cats.

    WIN. (In the most pathetic way ever.)


  2. Wow. You are the last person I am visiting with in 2009. Sleeping family at 11:58 on New Year’s Eve, I see has left me in good hands…..if you like fucking meat hands. Love your meat hand comment and had to check you out. Happy New Year.


  3. LiLu: Oh, how I envy you. The evening was fun, but required a dress that required special underwear and I had to brush my hair. Next year? So much couch sitting.

    Magda: Thanks for visiting! Happy New Year to you too. I am embarrassed to so frequently smell like meat, but I’m glad you appreciate it 🙂
