Welcome to the other side! That's right. I woke up this morning and 2010 had arrived. The evil villain from Star Trek had not inserted the red matter into the core of our planet vaporizing it and replacing it with a black hole. Yes, I've seen Star Trek a few times now and it always ends the same. Huh. Fancy that.
I love that movie.
I wonder if James T. Kirk is free tonight.
Back to last night. I "celebrated" the end of 2009 and the impending arrival of 2010. We watched movies, ate Mexican food, and drank a little beer. I looked at a friend's photos from their ski trip on Facebook. Then I started daydreaming about being on the ski slopes. I pictured myself making perfect 'S' turns down a challenging run. It looks so simple on TV and all the ski brochures show graceful skiers dancing thru powder like it's air. Um, no. THEY LIE! Also, my over-40 knees feel every bit of the terrain on bump slopes. OK. They feel it on every slope. Sheesh!
I immediately shifted gears. My daydream put me in a nice warm massaging spa. Ahhhh.
I'm not so sure about Cat this morning. He's still asleep upstairs somewhere. This is after curling up against me all evening while Hubby and I watched movies. Do cats do anything else besides sleep, eat, fart, and poop? Oh yeah. They whine. They know one word and the evil beasts can pronounce it in the most pathetic and/or annoying way to get your attention.
When I came downstairs this morning, my "holiday" amaryllis had opened up:
Ahhhhhh. Welcome to 2010. Blessings to you and your family.
