It's sort of an extra special New Year's Eve to me, as I view it as my Christmas and New Year combined into one evening. I really have a very limited memory of Christmas, due to being hopped up on muscle relaxants at the time. I remember throwing a turkey into the oven and that's pretty much it for the next week. I'm told our tv broke down temporarily and we opened presents, but all I remember is continuously wiping drool off my chin, while reminding myself to blink now and then.
So, as I said, tonight I am celebrating the joy of my family. So far tonight we have lounged about on the living room floor whilst watching the Radiohead New Year's Eve podcast on my laptop, which translated into squinting at a 2x2 inch square of cyberspace, whilst nibbling on bacon-wrapped scallops, veggies and cheese. 'Twas truly glorious. And we still have a whack of king crab legs to gorge ourselves upon later this evening.
Plus we took a run down to the best video store in the city earlier this afternoon, where we picked up enough fine viewing to keep us out of the daylight for the next several days. This is what we have on tap, if anybody wants to head up here to snuggle up on the couch with us for the next few days:
La Mala Educacion
Let's Rock Again (which we have wanted to rewatch for years!)
Jesus Christ: Vampire Hunter
However you end up kicking out the old year and welcoming the new, I want to wish you all the best for the next 365. I love you all. Bless your furry little hearts.
