Happy New Year!

Happy Nearly-2011! 

As you are probably well-aware by now, I am an Uber-Loser-Stay-At-Home-New-Year's-Eve-Un-Party-er blogging at 9:30 pm on December 31st. But then at least I get in one last post for 2010. And I won't get frostbite in our lovely -37C temps outside.

Phew, what a year this was... a roller-coaster of highs and lows. And I detest roller-coasters. Why people pay good money to lose their lunch is beyond me. But I digress.

Hopefully this brand spankin' shiny New Year will:

Have LESS mischievious feline exploits:

Tawnee climbing down the inside of our Christmas tree
with a quick nibble on a bow or two for good measure, natch.

Have MORE fantabulous home projects to brag about:

It's a box!
Yes, I really do amaze myself sometimes.
(Easier than you can imagine.)
Er, this was taken BEFORE I nailed it straight
so I could remember which way it went together, okay?

Have LESS humungous malls to throw my money away at:

Hmmm. Starbucks or the "Couture and Cuisine" fashion/foodie show
at the Galleria Mall in Dallas, Texas. Tough decision.
The show DID have nearly naked men spray-painted
gold and posed as chandeliers in the middle of the tables.
No, I am NOT kidding.

Have MORE opportunities for self-control at mealtime (unless there are nearly naked men spray-painted gold and posed as chandeliers in the middle of the table):

Excuse me, Ms Cheesecake Factory waitress,
but I don't believe I ordered HALF A FREAKIN' CHICKEN for lunch!

Have LESS run-ins with nasty weather:

My ex-umbrella.
No, I didn't do this in a fit of rage.
That beyotch Mother Nature did.
In a fit of rage, I do believe.

But then again, if these things DO happen in 2011, what the heck am I going to blog about?

Nevermind. Bring it on.

Happy New Year!! I hope some somewhat hilarious hijinks ensue for you this year as well since I would love to read about them. In the meantime, could you elaborate on the mostly-naked gold me and include pictures? :)

Oooooo, I think it should be a goal to see how many malls you CAN go to! :)

Happy New Year to you!

You had a good year in 2010. You posted a lot of funny and interesting articles that were a pleasure to read.

Our New Year ended with a bang. All the kids came over to visit with the bright idea that they were going to cook dinner for us. Well, they did, the little darlings, and in the process they dirtied every dish and pot and pan in the house. Which, of course, they left in the kitchen for us to clean up. Happy New Year. Am I ever glad to see 2011!

Happy trails.

And a happy New Year to you and your nearest and dearest umbrellas, X-mas tree cats and spray-painted golden men.

Yeah, I should be doing laundry, yardwork, cleaning the house or planning meals. But frankly, I'D RATHER BE BLOGGING... about things like this.
