Happy New Year's Eve...

Happy New Year to those of you who have already made it into 2010, and for those of you who are still on this side of midnight, Happy New Year's Eve, and I hope you have a fun but safe celebr ation.

Me? I'm staying home and hiding from all the madness. It's a tradition that I like just fine, thanks. I'll make dinner, watch some TV, maybe some DVDs, possibly watch the ball drop in New York when they televise that (if I think of it), and perhaps get some writing done. I've got a new internet project that I hope will go live within the next week or so, and I need to do some preparation for that.

I did have to share something I saw earlier today as I was on the bus on the way home after spending the day knitting with friends.

There was a guy standing on the median at one of the busiest intersections in town, one of the places where people usually stand with signs asking for work, for money or for something to eat.

None of that for this guy. His sign read, in big block letters: "WON'T LIE. NEED BEER."

I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. I guess my worse nature came out, because I settled on laughing. But, you know...I think he at least deserves points for honesty.

Happy New Year!!!!! I went out with my brother and his girlfriend. They came to visit from NC. Normally, I am a homebody, but they wanted to see Austin's 6th street on New Year's Eve - a crazy place during the normal year let alone New Year's Eve. Nonetheless, I came away from there unscathed and no worse for wear. It is not something I will repeat again, however. I will leave that to the kiddos in their miniskirts even though it was 30 degrees outside. Ahh, youth. :-)

Glad you had a comfortable evening.
