HAPPY NEW YEAR.... not so loud

actually i rang in the year early - thanks to a pity party and MUCH liquor and drunken dials....then as my beloved #3sc puts it - took a little night night .... then back up about 11:15 for some more phone calls and watching the big peach drop ( i'm in atlanta remember ) ... then back to the Law & Order SVU marathon ... i know it doesn't sound very exciting - and actually it wasn't - BUT about 3:30 Mike starts barking his head off - and my neighbors are outside toasting the new year ... and *ding dong* they're at my house and we have another cocktail or two - and i send them home..so all in all not awful .. not great ( cause i HATE being alone on New Year's Eve ... but i've had worse nights ....

and still i'm pretty optimistic about 2005 - i think good things are going to happen....and that dear bloggers doesn't suck.

wanna know something that DOES??? my new years present ...a fucking ZIT!!! i'm 34 years old - i'm too old for this crap .... if i am going to have a zit like a teenager - i want the ZERO responsibility of a teenager ... who do i need to talk to about that?

so question...is eating specific things on New Year's Day a southern thing or does everyone do it ... i for some reason HAVE to make either greens or cabbage, black eyed peas, cornbread, and usually some kind of ham product today ... it's supposed to bring good luck and health and love and all that jazz. I'm pretty sure i didn't do it last year - and as we all know - last year was all manner of fucked up - so i'm gonna see if i can't start this one a little bit better .... so far so good - it's almost 70 degrees here - i have all the windows open and i see mike and i taking a walk at the mountain today ... so there are worse ways to spend a day ....

i hope everyone is nursing their headaches and hangovers ... and has good stories to tell....and if i called you drunk ... sorry - unless i was funny - then YAY ME!

live it, love it, kiss it, spank it.
allison.

The Pomegranate, The Fig, and our parents are going to eat steaks for dinner. Is that anything?

Happy New Year, sister! From the girl who kissed her parents and her brother at midnight last night! HEHEHEHEH!

Happy New Year! It was pretty quiet around here too. I like it that way. As for the black eyed peas, I'll pass, they taste like dirt.

I'm pretty sure I was kissing the Big Gay Husband at midnight, but I vaguely remember some turn of events that resulted in my gal-pal Bubba slipping me a little tongue to the delight of the straight men in attendance. She was "THAT" girl and I was her understudy last night. But then, I didn't get anything written on my butt with a Sharpie, and she did.
