Awww...I set my alarm 15 minutes in advance of 12...eastern time...like a goon...got up and realized I should have set it for 12:45 instead...so I re-set the alarm and was prepared for the pursuit of crap.

Happy New Year to you, too, don't~!
I was invited to a married couple's condo about a week ago for New Year's Eve. My husband & I spent several New Year's with them in the past so it was a little bittersweet when I received the invitation. I agreed to go as I don't get to see them often and I wanted to see them on a social occasion rather than a crisis one.
Yesterday, we were supposed to get a large amount of snow, but it never came. So, right up until the last minute I was unsure if I was going to go or not (she lives 1-1.5 hours away)...so I only took a small change of clothes with me to work - no extra underwear, no toothbrush, no toothpaste, no contact lens carrier, no brush...nothing.
Since we didn't get the weather event, I decided to go and ended up raiding a Target for the things I had left behind.
My friend had made a homemade meat pie for the main entree, buffalo chicken dip for an appetizer, she had cheese & crackers galore and a veggie platter. I am sure she would have been pissed if I didn't show up as it was just the three of us for the evening and they had enough food for like 10 people~!
We watched two movies..."Tenacious D" and "Mr Bean's Holiday." (Her choice, but light and silly enough for me to be preoccupied on them versus something else.)
At midnight, my friend ran to give me a hug, but I shunned her off and re-directed to her husband for first dibs...I am superstitious about that kind of stuff. I believe in the New Year's kiss...etc.
It was nice to have the company...and it was good to see that Dick Clark made it to 2008...
Oh, and I learned who Hannah Montana, the Jonas brothers & Taylor Swift are in a few short hours...whether I am all the wiser, I am unsure.
To my woot brothers and sisters, misfits or not, Happy New Year...Thank f(e)rk!
