I don’t like New Years. I never have and I have no intention of changing that in the near or distant future. I do not understand the desire to go out and mix with other “adults” and watch them be merry and drunk. Generally January sucks arse for me so I will wait until February and celebrate Chinese New Year’s instead.
However, I do have some exceptional plans for tomorrow –
- Going to the Museum of Science & Industry with the family at the crack of dawn. I am so excited for this it feels like Christmas Pt. 2! I intend to purchase many wax statues for them as nothing says a Chicago museum trip like a $3.00 wax statue of the U-505. I do love the smell of those things too.
- Chinese for dinner….and not even the meal part. Just a bunch of assorted starters and some nice fried rice.
- Then we will celebrate the New Year at 7pm with some noise makers (like the kids need any of these), funny bead necklaces and a host of other crap bought at the party store by me.
- Then finally a peaceful celebration with the weefe at the correct time.
And best of all I can stay out of the general fray and not see Ryan Seacrest for a single second.
