Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all are nicely recovered from your decadent New Year's Eve celebrations. I for one went out to my friend MJM's in Brooklyn, which if you know anything about the city takes about as long as it does to get to Philadelphia via Amtrak. I'm not kidding. I had to take the 1 train to 23rd Street, get off and then walk one block to 6th Avenue to take the F train. In heels no less.
See I was wearing this very cute dress that I bought from Express to celebrate the oncoming of 2008. Purple and fuschia stripes. Totally awesome and 25% off. Unfortunately, apart from my friend MJM, there was no one else at the part to appreciate my outfit since the entire guest list for the most part consisted of gay men. Who I love, but it would have been nice to have a handsome straight guy to give a kiss to at midnight. Ah well, there's always this year.
Drank way too much punch and champagne, watched the fireworks from the roof deck and then headed home around 1 am. and eventually arrived home around 2:30 so I didn't go to sleep until 3:00 a.m. on January 1, 2008.
Saw Juno before I went work. Excellent movie, snappy snarky dialogue although Jennifer Garner is starting to annoy me. She has this expression when she's supposed to be sad that just bugs me. Had to write both the CBS Evening News and Biggest Loser: Couples last night at work. At least with the news it keeps me somewhat informed. I have mixed feelings about The Biggest Loser. While I applaud the fact that the show helps people lose weight, the fact that the winner receives $250,000 for his/her efforts makes me wonder if they would make the effort if there wasn't a monetary reward at the end. Plus the fact that they get eliminated each week if they haven't lost as much weight as the other teams seems harsh.
No New Year's resolutions apart from remembering to take my vitamins this year. That's all.
Hope everyone had a safe and happy New Year!
