Thank God for Chinese New Year – it gives me a second chance to get my resolutions right. Plus, unlike New Year’s Eve, you get an animal to accompany you throughout the year. 2010 is the tiger – the tiger is so 1998, 1986, 1974, 1962….
This year my New Year’s resolution was to go the gym. My Chinese New Year’s resolution is to get out of the car and go into the gym. Next year, workout in the gym. Don’t want to rush it.
In typical Chinese tradition, last night I feasted on sushi (although I would not recommend the quickflickpick n’ roll – “specialty” prepared by the sushi chef on the right) and sweet delicacies (cinnamon jelly hearts).
Looking forward to firecrackers (aka shipping bubble wrap) tonight. Also looking forward to being smudge free. Oh, wait, it’s not smudge, it’s grudge. Hmmmm. Nevermind – I’m just looking forward to firecrackers.
With Valentine’s Day just one day away, I have been reminiscing about VDs of yesteryear. It’s funny what makes us think of former lovers. Holidays are always nostalgic and tend to spark those memories – medical history questionnaires are a lot like holidays. In fact, just yesterday I took a trip down memory lane while completing a medical history questionnaire at my doctor’s office.
Question: What are you doing to prevent HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases?
Answer: Avoiding my ex (and using condoms).
Surprisingly, my doctor read the entire questionnaire and was proper impressed with my answer.
It’s just one day away, enjoy your VD!
Sounds nice, doesn’t it? They are great! In fact, I would recommend at least one a year. I’m sure Dr. George N. Papanicolaou wouldn’t mind a little Italian reference. Make your reservations early, “table” for one. Feel free to browse http://apparellel.blogspot.com/ for outfit ideas. Anything that ties in the back is best. Maybe a belt to accessorize.
Looking forward to GrigioGirlToo. My friend, aka stalker, plans to blog alongside me. We plan to call it TogBlogging. I’ll start the posts and he will……
Tada! I’ve got a blog! I’m so excited to start writing…..but first, a drink!
