Non-resolutions

Good thing I didn't resolve to blog, and do so brilliantly, every day, though a new background was felt to be in order. Have already read one gratuitous Brit Chick Lit novel. (For, um, research.) Will need to balance with something brain-numbingly intellectual. Still need to send packages of presents, which becomes ever more important, given that some of these gifts are calendars.

Recap When Lady Crumpet last parted from you, she was about to embark on a dreamily romantic New Year's Eve date at the oh-so-posh restaurant Vong, courtesy of a precious gift from the Green Llama. Yours truly managed not to spill any of her apple martini or glass of sauvignon blanc all over herself, nor did she snicker, snort, guffaw or chortle in any unseemly manner. Scott looked quite sharp in his new jacket. The appetizers were adventures in taste and texture, the seafood entrees were succulent and herbed. We had tiny pots of tea to go with our desserts, and then there were after-dinner chocolates sprinkled with paprika! Afterwards, we visited Shillak and Silke at their lovely spacious pad across the river, and we came down to earth with a free-for-all game of Trivial Pursuit. Amongst friends, Lady Crumpet could let down her hair and laugh cheekily whilst cracking jokes, sipping champagne and nibbling M&Ms. There were silly hats and noisemakers. We watched the ball drop and then scooted up to the roof to view...well, the fireworks that weren't blocked by the buildings in front of us.
