Happy New Year, my lovies!
2011 is barely a few hours old, and the first thing I want to do is update this little chronicle. I don't know how 2010 treated you, but overall, it was pretty good to me. Until the end of year, that is. December 9th, to be specific... when things took a decided turn for the sucky (that circle of life issue I referred to in a previous post). To be honest, the person most affected by the events of that day probably had a fairly miserable 2010, but I believe he is in a better place now.
So on to the new year for everyone.
I must confess that I wasn't very interested in New Year's Eve this year. Usually, I feel at least a little bit of pressure to go out and do something spectacular, but this time, I seriously considered more mellow options, like staying home in my PJ's. I have to admit, however, that I'm glad I didn't succumb to that temptation.
As it so happens, I ended up ringing in 2011 in style. My celebration began at 4 p.m. on December 31st, when I arrived at my favorite karaoke den. Three and a half hours later, I'd sung five songs and sung them all quite well. I'd like to believe that bodes well for my singing skills in the year ahead. I also, by the way, consumed two fairly potent cocktails during that time.
I left Brad's at about 10 p.m. and headed across town to Olena and Kevin's party, where I intended to stay for about an hour so I could get home before midnight. Yes, that was my intention, and no, I have no idea why. However, within a few minutes of arriving at said soiree, I knew I wasn't going anywhere anytime soon. Champagne was consumed, dancing was done, and cheers, hugs and kisses greeted the arrival of 2011. I brought my camera with me, but I didn't take a single photograph. Others did snap a few shots, however; so maybe I can nick a few off Facebook in the days to come and share them with you.
All in all, I would call my New Year's Eve a big success. Here's to hoping the rest of 2011 follows suit.
