Here we go folks, another year has ended and we get a reboot for a new year.
Last night I worked at the hotel, which was almost full. And as usual, all the guests were so nice and friendly. During my fifteen plus year working at a hotel I find that the guests during "The Holidays" (Christmas and New Year's) often to be the nicest and happiest and last night was no exception.
I got off my shift at ll:00 PM, which gave me enough time to get home (takes me about fifteen minutes) to see the Kathy Griffin/Anderson Cooper Awkwardness Nonsense on CNN. Last night was no exception, especially when Kathy told Anderson to put two spoons to his eyes and she spray tanned him. What was that all about? Poor Anderson, usually giggling (like a little school girl) wasn't giggling over that stunt and I don't blame him. Kathy? What are you doing?
I was going to flip the channel to look for Dick Clark's Rocking New Year's Eve (he's still doing it isn't he, dead or alive?) but was too
Yes, I did watch "the ball drop". Very colorful this year I must say.
My New Year's resolution this year is to get rid of this ten pounds of flab I have around my middle. The first step was to go to bed last night right after the ball dropped, sans my usual banana smoothie. Oh how I missed that smoothie. I'm not sure if I can keep this resolution but I would really like to get rid of that life preserver I have around my waist.
Pat was playing a New Year's gig last night in Toronto. More power to him and his bandmates. I don't know if I could stay up until four in the morning. Of course he's
Bill made me promise to be nicer to him this year. That I will do. I have to admit sometimes I lose my patience with his hard of hearing. I feel like I'm shouting all the time which upsets him so I have to find a middle ground. I'll work on it, I promise.
We have a quiet day planned here. Update my Scrabble boards and, of course, update my blog. I should update my e-mail, or shall I say scroll through all the junk e-mail looking for the real messages. I have to admit I don't do e-mail much these days. It's been ruined like snail mail, overwhelmed with Junk Mail.
By the way, I still didn't get my new Discover credit card. I notified them almost two weeks ago. I called two days ago to inquire where it was and was told it was "still active." I asked "Did I do something wrong when I called and said I lost it?" He very nice gentleman on the other side of the line said "No you didn't sire, it was a clerical mistake." Gee, thanks. The very nice gentleman said he would overnight it by Fed Ex. Of course I didn't get it yet. Service. Am I asking too much? I hope I get more dependable service in the New Year.
Only a little more than a week to go folks before the Ron and Pat Show hit the road again. This time California. Here we come LA!
