Congratulations to Painted Maypole, for being the first to correctly guess the common thread between all the "things" I had listed!
Yes, all of this happened on New Year's Eve, 2008.
No, it was not 1989.
No, I wasn't drunk while dancing behind the steering wheel. That was at the beginning of the night fergoodnesssakes! And we did have a sober driver, just so you know!
Yes, it felt a little like reliving my college years.
Yes, I'm a chatterbox. Deal with it.
No, it didn't take place in Auburn. The last time I partied in Auburn I was seventeen, at The Omni.
And that twirling? Swoon. Thank you honey, for that - and thanks to the band for playing a Johnny Cash song so we could break out of our disco dancing!
Thank you for playing along and putting up with my silly recap of my fascinating (to me) adventures while ringing in the new year! We really did have a great time, enjoyed good food and good drink and good friends (even made a few new ones).
And that strawberry shake? It was 2 am. We were at Denny's. So, really, not out of place at all (and fyi: I didn't come close to finishing it).
Maypole, you can email me at the address over there on the right, and I'll mail your Starbuck's card right away so you can enjoy a few lattes, Tazo teas or mochas on me. They also have fantabulous cranberry bliss bars, pound cake and chocolate covered graham crackers and if I can't have 'em, maybe I could live vicariously through you?
