2010 vs. 2011

January 3, 2011 at 8:45 am (Personal)

Last New Year’s, I:

  • drank far, far too much
  • was apparently a charming if talkative loon when drunk
  • ended up barfing in between either 1) apologizing to my food for not giving it a better, more permanent home or 2) explaining the plot for the best fanfic idea EVAR
  • learned the true meaning of a hangover

This New Year’s, I:

  • listened to the resident organist play for First Night in Boston
  • shared a glass and a kiss at the stroke of midnight
  • joined friends in the Berkshires for assorted goofiness
  • watched fire poi and fire staff work (and no one was set on fire)
  • talked plots and characters and ideas with many creative people
  • attempted to convince a toddler to finish his food, which through a series of events too embarrassing to go into resulted in me being dubbed “Chicken Dance”
  • demonstrated the Chicken Dance for those who had never seen it
  • thoroughly enjoyed my role as Horrible Aunt Maggie

2010 was a very good year with an inauspicious start.  So far, 2011 has been much better.  Let’s hope that continues.

Except for maybe the Chicken Dance.  I can do without that.

    Sounds like a great beginning to a wonderful new year. 🙂 I wish you all the best in 2011 with the books and all around you.

    Cheers to the new year!
