I'm exhausted and have to get up early for work, tomorrow, but I want to start the new year off right with a post.
First off: THANK GOD, WE'RE BACK IN AN EVEN NUMBERED YEAR! ... though I suck at math, I have a thing for easy patterns and even numbers, particularly even numbered years. I LOVE even numbered years. Maybe it's because even numbers represent symmetry, where odd numbers don't. eh ... I digress.
I hope everyone reading this enjoyed whatever manner they rang in the new year. We had a few friends over to play board games and switched on the TV to watch the ball drop a couple of minutes before the year rang in. Man, Carson Daly looked bad! Low-key and fun. I'm down with that.
I insisted that we have black-eyed peas for breakfast. Honey hates them, but he'll have a few forkfuls to appease me. It's the only time of the year he eats them. But that's okay; it's the only time it counts!
This afternoon, Honey and I went to the local movie theater. I assumed if we got there with 10 or 15 minutes to spare, we could get a good seat. After all, yesterday that was the case when I went to the same theater with a girlfriend. Not so much! We were in the second row and craned our necks to watch Juno. It was worth it, though. Fantastic movie. I highly recommend it. I laughed. I cried. I laughed and cried simultaneously. Come to think of it, that was a great movie to start a new year off with: it's all about birth and choices and hope. And the soundtrack was great. I think we'll buy the soundtrack, soon, and the movie when it comes out on DVD. It was so great. After an hour or so at the local IKEA on a (successful) hunt for a lamp, we ended the day with dinner with friends. It was the perfect way to close a day and begin a year.
So there's my boring day. I wish I had something profound to write, but I don't. I just needed to write at all. WRITE, WRITE, WRITE! I hope 2008 brings you and yours nothing but good fortune!
