I Don't Do New Year's Eve.

Wednesday, December 31, 2008

I know what you are thinking. What, you don't do New Years?

My Hair Dresser Vinnie said it best.

New Year's Eve is like if everyone had to to get their hair done on December 31. The catch would be that your hairdresser would be booked months in advance so you would be never be able to get an appointment. So you go to a different salon that you don't like quite as much. When you get to that salon you find out you have to pay a cover to get in and you have to pay three times as much to get their usual services. Oh, and they will only offer three things on their "menu" rather than your usual "fare."

That is exactly how things work in the restaurant industry so for that reason I boycott.

Tonight I will be curled up with a glass of champagne and my two favorite men (one being very little). Bedtime will come well before the ball drops, and the New Year will be here before I know it.

I hope those of you who do celebrate the festivities have an amazing and safe night.

See you next year.

Happy New Year! I'm sitting here at 10.30pm in my PJs drinking a glass of white wine, but will be in bed before too long.

I did go to a neighbour's drinks party for an hour earlier before excusing myself and coming home - why stay out when I can sit in my PJs at home? God that sounds boring, but hey, I'm happy!

Happy New Year YM! I know what you mean about New years being a bit of an anti climax! We stay indoors - last night we stayed indoors at brother in laws family and had great fun. It was only the bubbles in the champagne that kept me up until midnight I think! Hope 2009 brings you all you wish for! xx
