Okay, so it's New Year's Eve. Can you feel the electrified excitement flowing through my fingers as I type? You can't? Golly Gee! I wonder why that is. Could it be that I learned a long, long time ago that nothing's going to change at midnight? Probably. There's also the possibility that I realized, again, a long, long time ago, that New Year's Eve was just an excuse to party hearty. That is the excuse most people rely upon. And it's already started - I received a notification a short time ago that New Zealand is the first country to celebrate the new year. Excuse me, but what's to celebrate? While some countries might be a little better than they were last year this time, there are also some countries which aren't, some are even worse.
Of course, in America, Conservatives refusing to get vaccinated will end up getting Covid over and over again until it finally kills them. I guess that could be considered a bright spot. I tell those who believe the nutso jobs on The Daily Wire when they say there's no concrete proof you can catch Covid more than once that they need to come work in my store. A number of people have already had it twice.
On the bright side, I am off today. I do work tomorrow, but I get holiday pay, and they're bringing in food for us. Now, ain't that a jolly treat. Business will be slow, except for the duffers who think we're going to be running New Year's Day sales. That'll never happen.
Other Bright Spots? My back is feeling great. The dogs are healthy. The fish tank is evolving into something old (photos when I get the live plants). Oh, and I'm thinking of baking chewy, spice cookies today.
I have always celebrated New Year's Eve with dinner and drinks, as more or less a ode to the good things to be grateful for and piff on the old, and always approach the new year with a positive...as hard as that is getting each passing year.ReplyDelete
A safe and Happy New Year to you Dave.
Thanks! So far I and the dogs are enjoying the quietude.Delete
DeathSantis has disappeared and Florida will not have any COVID testing sites because .... he's an ass.ReplyDelete
Plan your funeral, Floridians.
That state is turning into the pinnacle of Conservative stupidity.Delete
I'll be staying home too for NYE - just doesn't appeal to me and in any case, I like waking up on New Year's Day without a hangover (been there, done that, got the T-shirt). I hope 2022 is kind to you Dave and wish you all the best!ReplyDelete
Jeez, we may have the same T-shirt! Wishing the same to you, and your kids, and your lovely grandson.Delete
Happy New YearsReplyDelete
Happy 2022, Dave!ReplyDelete
