Happy New Year
Happy New Year! I rang in the new year with one Jello shot.
I think Jello shots taste better if you’re underage or at a fraternity party.
Both of which were more than a couple years ago for me.
I would have liked to have been drinking Veuve but I had two hot dates and couldn’t risk my vision being impaired or just falling asleep.
My first hot date was with my pal, Lightroom.
I was knee deep in chocolate photos that I wanted to edit.
After staring at a computer screen for so many hours a day as it is and my eyes glazing over without any help, the last thing I needed to attempt was tipsy editing.
It’s a dark chocolate recipe rather than white chocolate but you can imagine looking at all those chips on the screen after a few drinks. Blurry much?
And after my date with LR 3, I had a date with the ladies of Beverly Hills on my DVR.
I hate coming home from vacations and having a pile of laundry and a pile of bills to sort, but one windfall is that I have a pile of fun shows to watch that are waiting for me. My DVR is chock full of Top Chef Texas, the Kardashians, Kendra, the Real Housewives, Iron Chef, and more mindless programming.
Since I’m well-stocked with trashy and reality TV on my DVR, I didn’t want to fall asleep on my DVR date which is likely what would have happened had I popped the bubbly. So I refrained.
And just to get the new year started off with a healthy weekend breakfast, I may make Baked Chocolate Peanut Butter Donuts with Vanilla Peanut Butter Glaze
Because they’re baked donuts and not friend and have peanut butter in them, they’re healthy, right. But of course.
Nothing like getting 2012 started off right.
Resolutions? Nah, not so much.
How was your New Years Eve? What did you do?
Did you stay in or go out? Did you stay awake until midnight?
I made it until midnight because I live in urban San Diego near a large hospital and the siren, ambulance, and police noise leading up to midnight, and well after, was rampant and frequent.
Not everyone had a safe and mellow holiday if the amount of sirens, police, and ambulances up and down the streets all night long (and for a few days leading up to New Years Eve) were any indication.
I hope you had a safe, fun, and great New Year’s Eve.
