Don't Mince Words


I resolve to…

Posted on January 01, 2009 by Marna

My brother and I had bad allergies as kids. As a result, we easily took naps. No complaints. In my adult life, I’ve continued my love of sleep, but now it borders on “you know you are getting old when….”

When GC asked me if I had plans for New Years, I laughed. I mean, why? After you’ve done Times Square, is there any point in getting on the road for a party in LA? I don’t think so. Of course, it’s rare for me to be up that late any way, unless I take a disco nap.

Imagine my excitement when I found a brand new way to enjoy New Years. It’s called East Coast Feed. At 9 p.m. GC, his 7 year-old son, and I blew horns, shot off confetti, and threw colored streamers. Tex and I walked home and I was in bed by 10:30 p.m.

A perfect New Year’s Eve.
