Happy New Year!!

So, I love this. This is completely fantastic. For the Fourth year in a row, I have been sick for New Years' Eve and all the countdowns and festivities. This totally sucks!! The first year I had my wisdom teeth removed on the 30th, and was still hungover from painkillers, so I spent the day/evening watching the first of the Lord of the Rings movies and the requisite special features. I looked like a chipmunk with my cheeks swollen (although I did a great Marlon Brando impression during that time). The second year I had the flu, so I stayed home and watched the second of the Lord of the Rings movies and its special features. (I'm talking the Extended Editions, not the theatrical things.) Last year, after Hurricane Charley, we had insulation replaced and my mother and I both had reactions to it. She went out to dinner, but was home by midnight, but I just stayed home and (sensing the pattern yet?) watched the last of the Lord of the Rings movies and its special features. This year, I caught a cold from one of our house guests that were here for Christmas (at least that's where I assume I caught it, and it could be the flu, but I refuse to believe that because then I would have to admit that I should have gotten a flu shot). So, since there weren't and new Lord of the Rings movies, and King Kong is still in the theater, I stayed home watched TV and read a trashy romance novel. It was seriously fun..... and if you believe that I've got some beach-front property in North Dakota you'd love...



Question of the Day: What did you do for New Years'?
