My New Year's Eve was spent having the traditional; or maybe not so traditional who knows, party. However, in addition to new year's eve, we combined it into my 30th birthday party as well, so that party I've been talking about for over a year did happen. It was very, um, interesting, but I hope everyone enjoyed themselves over all. I got to see littlefroggy and I think it's been about twelve years since I saw her last, and sas_on_heels was there along with a bunch of other people. We had lots of snacks and things, and believe me, now we're trying to eat our way through our kitchen. We currently don't have a stove, and there's no room in our fridge for anything. We welcomed in the new year with noisemakers and sparkling grape juice; (by that time all the good stuff was pretty much packed up I think). I got some great stuff from people too, including a gift card for a great department store where I absolutely love to shop, Seventh heaven season 3 on DVD, and Punky Brewster season 2 on DVD. Punky is soooo cute!!!!! SMILE! I also got this really huge bottle of something that I've never had before, and I can't wait to try it out, but once it's opened it has to go into the fridge, and unfortunately that's not happening right now so I have to wait.
Before the party started, voyagerjc and I were taken out to dinner at a sports bar. It's kind of like an Irish pub thing, so when Ireland hit midnight, (6:00 PM Central time), we got to celebrate. They handed out party hats, noise-makers, and Champaign. We were there at a really good time, and their pub burgers are probably some of the best burgers around. Imagine 8 ounces of juicy meat piled on a bun with tons of bacon and mushrooms, with a really big pile of fries. There was so much there that by the time I got to the party I was pretty full, and it took me so long to finish my one piece of cake that when I finally finished with it everyone in the room cheered.
Once midnight came we all pretty much cleared out. I think I finally got to bed a little after 1:00, and throughout the night Taz kept meowing and meowing, and I never did really figure out what that was all about. I woke up at 8:00 and started watching the first disk of Seventh heaven. I plan to spend the rest of the day with my DVD player, the cats, and my new DVDs. This should be great!
I thought I'd leave everyone with a couple of pictures from the party. The cake was a quarter sheet cake, chocolate with butter cream frosting, and in the center was a picture of Taz and Cally. Sam's Club can take pictures and transfer them somehow onto edible paper, and that's what they did with my babies, so I ended up eating part of Taz's head. Hey, maybe that's why he was so noisy last night; he realized that part of his head was gone. SMILE! The other pictures are decorations, (balloons and streamers, and then a banner that was hung up that said happy birthday. The theme, (surprise surprise), was cats, and the closest thing I could come up with was hello Kitty, so most everything was Hello Kitty. So, for those that can see the pictures, enjoy, for those that can't, at least you'll have some sort of idea what they're about. Later everyone!
