Congrats JM, Happy New Year and other junk

So, it's New Years Eve and my plans are to hang some pictures in the living room (I repainted) read some blogs, and play some Xbox...excitement unlimited!!!  When I was young and liked to drink a tad, I loved going out for New Year's Eve...was a great excuse :-)  But even then, I don't think I really ever GOT the occassion.  It's been several years since I've done anything to celebrate the event however I do enjoy the day off work so I'm not preposing an end to the holiday!  I don't make resolutions and I don't have a special meal...it's just another day.  But to all those party-goers (JM and Boyfriend are going out) I wish you a fun filled evening and BE SAFE...people are crazy!!!


On another note, I'm thinking of starting a grass roots movement to encourage arranged marriages.  I heard recently that the divorce rate in most first world countries is somewhere in the neighborhood of 50%....one out of every two marriages ends in divorce...so it appears that we are not very good at picking our life partners.  I don't know if arranged marriages would change anything but at least we'd have a good excuse if it didn't work!!!  It would be kind of like bad politicians, we always say..."well, I didn't vote for them".  With a bad spouse, we would always be able to say..."well, I didn't pick them"......just an idea :-)




I was at Jumble Mash's place last night feeding my face full of meatball subs that she made with french fries and mac 'n cheese....mmm, mmmm, good....when she popped her iPad in front of my face to show me she had just gotten her 100th follower...she was happier than a pig in poop :-)  So congratulations to my darlin' daughter for achieving this milestone in the blogging universe!  If somehow, you haven't read her blog...I promise, it's entertaining!

Happy New Year! There is like 2 minutes left here until its midnight but there fire works are going crazy... me I'm tucked up in bed chattering to you at almost a british new years day!

I had an arranged marriage myself... yeah I'm not lying there! See it gets people thinking your complete nuts and all the documentaries out there try and make out so.... so maybe its not such a good idea :D... even if its a 50% rate for divorce.

Wow, sounds like your New Years Eve is going to be more exciting than mine and Bruce's. No wait... I think about the same. X-box, blogs, reading my book, maybe a little cocktail or two or three and then bedtime. Tomorrow is Saturday! New Years Eve is for the young ones I say. Your daughter is awesome so it doesn't surprise me she has 100 followers. You'll be there before you know it too. Happy 2011!

Well, I still like to drink and I will be partying hard right here in my own house. No need for a designated driver. See how responsible I am?

Happy New Year!

@Bubbles...still about four and a half hours until the big moment here! I'll take your word on the arranged marriage :-)

@Barb...I have to agree with you on the awesomeness of my daughter...even when she's a pain in my ass ;-) You should put party hats on the donkeys for New Years!

@Odie...thanks

your partying sounds like mine... TV in the background (ron), laptop on (me) with blogs up (surfing), maybe a book later (heck, i might even download a book to my nook that i got last year (2009)).

a drink might happen, too. i have some really good tequia and some sweet/sour. might make a "margarita" of sorts. yum. ron can watch me drink it.

Jimmy said...

Not much into going out and partying anymore, I suppose we outgrow that so to say, will sit around and catch up on some reading and just may write a line or two, heck we have a new year coming up and I need to be ready.

Happy New Years to you my Friend, maybe Barb and Bruce can come over to your house and we can drop by so we can all hang out and not necessarialy have a hang over in the morning.

We're staying in for New Year's also. We've got nasty weather here today. Also, I'm feeling under the weather, and both kids are as well. Fun stuff. Seems like every year on New Year's one of us is sick. Never me though, so this is new. Nobody waits on momma when she's sick.

Happy New Year! Hope 2011 is awesome for you!

my daughter has some friends over so i am in the mancave watching sports! and drinking crown and coke...

i think not getting married will help the divorce rate, but that is prolly just me...

Happy New Year!

bruce said...

Chief aka Dad http://unsoundreasoning.blogspot.com said...

@Bruce...not at all...was married for 10 and I think it's been 17 since I got divorced.

Chief, I wish I could have stayed home and blogged. Instead I sat outside with a dozen peole I hardly knew getting eaten by mozzies and wishing I was anywhere but in the spa when a rather large man decided to join three of us ladies.

Happy New Year to you :)
