Happy New Year! Welcome to 2009! I was incredibly lazy last night. In fact, I think I was asleep by 10:30pm and I slept straight through until 9:30 this morning. I needed a break.

A friend is coming over this afternoon for omelets and mimosas and some lazing about. I probably should have taken tomorrow as a vacation day but at least it will be quiet at work and, tomorrow night, I'm cooking dinner for my friends Mike & Drew and Drew's boyfriend Paul. Lasagna!

This is the first year since 2001 that my family isn't going on a winter cruise. :( It's the right decision given the economy and the fact that they'd charge my sister full price for Chase but I'm starting to feel restless. I always appreciated the vacation itself but I don't think I fully appreciated how nice it was to get away for a week every year until now. As soon as I sell that damn place in Florida I'm planning a Mediterranean cruise.

I'm halfway through season five of The L Word and, in a recent episode, I saw "Kelly McGillis" listed as a guest star. It took me three full episodes to realize which actress is Kelly McGillis and it only finally clicked because I heard her speak without seeing her face. Did you know that Top Gun was released TWENTY THREE years ago? Wtf? Twenty three years!?! I don't think I've seen McGillis in anything since then (maybe Witness. when was that released?) and I was still expecting to see the Kelly McGillis who lost that loving feeling.

I don't think I've posted about my fantastic weekend in Chicago with [ profile] carta and [ profile] kiffle. So much fun! (Though I can't take them anywhere fancy. :p ) There was burlesque and deep dish pizza and Dr. Horrible and SO MUCH JUNK FOOD. Seriously. I think I ate an entire bag of jalapeno potato chips dipped in cheese sauce. I don't know what came over me. Perhaps it was fun and alcohol. Regardless, YUM. Plus there was mulled wine and Godiva hot chocolate with butter shots. Mmmmmm.

That's my story. I should probably clean up a bit before Kathy gets here at 1pm.
