New Year Eve Plans
I'm sitting here thinking about New Year's Eve and hoping to leave work early on Friday. So I thought I'd ask, what are you doing for New Year's? Don't laugh, but we have tickets to a hotel function in Dallas. There will be a dinner served, then an Elvis impersonator and a champagne toast. Of course there is a cash bar, so we can get our drunk on. I think it will be fun. Last year, we just went to my FIL's so we could get up and go shopping the next day at the Canton Flea Market. This is something only the locals would understand. I was sick and New Year's sucked ass. The (2) years before that we went to lame parties. I was the dd (designated driver), so it sucked. I got my buzzed then got to be the sober one around a bunch of drunks. I always plan this perfect midnight moment with my and my OH (other half), but it never happens. So this year, I'm planning fun and maybe it will happen. I have found when you are a pisces like me your are quite the day dreamer. You dream up this great stuff just to get let down by reality. So, no dreaming for me this year.
The year before the OH I had a friend/bed buddy/friend w/ benefits kind of man in my life. We had been friends since right out of H.S. and had reunited after my divorce. I went to a party with him. All strangers, but him. It was blast. He played darts with the dead beats, while I played drunk Jenga with a group. We played Jenga and they had written in things to do on each block. For example, switch an item of clothing with someone from the opposite sex, kiss someone of the same sex, take a shot, etc. It was quite a fun party game. You should try it. Anyway, the next thing I knew some guy beside me was wearing my skirt and I was wearing his pants. About that time my date came up and grabbed me for a big midnight kiss. I was impressed. It was romantic in a drunk kind of a way. LOL! Anyway, we are still friends to this day and those strangers have some very interesting pics of me still floating around today and prolly don't even know my name. LOL!
Anyway, my first not love (meaning h.s. or jr high crush), but first real inlove, I want to marry you inlove lived out of town. I had went to go see him when I was 20. While getting ready to go out for New Year's he played the song below to me. Even though it wasn't our song and I shouldn't get sappy since I'm with the love of my life now this song always makes me feel special. I have transferred it to my love now playing it to me instead of an ex. I hope that is allowed, cuz it brings tears to my eyes and for some reason this song makes me feel new year's evey (is evey a word?) even though it has nothing to do with new year's.
Anyway, I just wanted to share this story and the sentimental value this song has to me. So, back to my original point: what is your plans for new year's?

It's late in the evening; she's wondering what clothes to wear.She puts on her make-up and brushes her long blonde hair.And then she asks me, "Do I look all right?"And I say, "Yes, you look wonderful tonight."
We go to a party and everyone turns to seeThis beautiful lady that's walking around with me.And then she asks me, "Do you feel all right?"And I say, "Yes, I feel wonderful tonight."
I feel wonderful because I seeThe love light in your eyes.And the wonder of it allIs that you just don't realize how much I love you.
It's time to go home now and I've got an aching head,So I give her the car keys and she helps me to bed.And then I tell her, as I turn out the light,I say, "My darling, you were wonderful tonight.Oh my darling, you were wonderful tonight."
