Happy New Year!

Yikes--it's hard to believe it's 2009. Sounds so futuristic, no?

I had a FANTASTIC time last night at Santa Fe Station partying it up with my friend Lisa. (Check out my December 9 blog about her.) Her husband got us into an event for the VIPs so we had free food, free drinks, dancing... what more can I say? Oh, I could say that at midnight New York time (which will always mark the real New Year for me) the first person who hugged me was an ex-Playboy bunny (Miss July 1999) and the first person who kissed me was an ex-porn star. Hmmmm... is this a sign of what lies ahead for 2009? With any luck!

The VIP party was an early one, so afterward a bunch of us headed down to I think it's called the 49 Bar or something like that. I snuggled for a while on a cushy sofa with Miss July (she's very sweet) and Lisa and I danced our asses off on the table. At one point we were dancing like go-go girls inside a beaded light (hard to describe). Lisa and I were laughing about how she's a "Nana" and I'm a "Granny," though we don't exactly have that grandmotherly behavior down quite yet. A friend of Miss July was taking pictures of us--if I ever hear from him, I'll post them. (Um, maybe...)

Today there's nothing on my agenda except to make my plans for the New Year. I have tons of stuff that I want to accomplish--I won't bore you with them--and as far as resolutions go, I have only one:

To have more FUN!!!

Yep, that's it.

Sure, I'd love to lose a few pounds and I probably should exercise a little more and drink a little less. And yeah, it wouldn't kill me to eat a vegetable now and then or a piece of fruit (I happen to think cheese ravioli is the most delicious food known to man). And really, some of the crap that comes out of my mouth is no way for a granny to talk, but tough shit--my only resolution is to have more fun!

Yep, more of this:

Because this is inevitable.

Here's to a FUN-filled 2009!

Hey, I don't think you should try to have MORE fun than you did last night - you might hurt yourself, or others! Ha ha. It was a blast! Thanks for coming.

I'm with ya on the more fun thing! Why not, life is short. (Seems to be getting shorter, too...)

Sounds like your NYE was a memorable one, but every now and again, you gotta have one for the books.

Hope your 2009 is filled with awesome.

Your new year sounds like so much fun and I love that you were at a VIP party at Santa Fe. I love VIP parties. I only go to the club if we have our own table. I'm spoiled like that!

Happy New Year!

Odd that you would comment about adding oil to you Saturn (not just "checking"), those single over head cam motors are drinkers.

I only say odd becasue you also went to SUNY Plattsburg, where the latest lets blow the motor in the Saturn son is going to school.

The first lets blow the motor person was my daughter, of SUNY Oswego fame, so yeah, this is motor #2, I have it down to 2 days now.

So next time your have an invite to a porn star playboy bunny party, remember your kindred spirt church of Saturn blogger who will just stand around, glassy eyed mumbuling to him self.

Happy new year...

Sounds like a lot of fun. I was asleep before Midnight!

Boring life I lead.
