party like it's 2011

Seems everyone is posting about resolutions just now.

I don't have any. (unless I pinch my sisters' idea, which she says is to drink more and exercise less. Can't fail.)

Instead, I'm going to tell you how we spent our razzle-dazzle, non-stop-excitement NYE.

First, we ate our dinner, with the kiddies dropping peas and arguing over elbows. Then we showered and dressed in our best PJs, tucked the kiddies into bed (with their own elbows) and settled down on the couch to watch SALT.

And the power went out.

For over an hour.

So we put on head-lamps, and read our books. (Fabio had a Stephen King, I'm re-re-re-re-reading Harry Potter).

Then we went to bed. Where the real celebrating may or may not have taken place.

(OK... not. It was late, and we were tired.)

Party animals. I know.


  1. Headlamps?
    You have headlamps? What a great idea!
    I must get one....because reading by candlelight is not fun. At all.

  2. Hope you have had a chance to see Salt. Headlamps only seems fitting really!! LOL
    Happy New Year my friend

  3. Woo Hoo! Sounds almost as exciting as ours!! And NY resolutions are WAAAAY overrated - I find it more meaningful to resolve anything that needs resolving on my birthday!!

    Happy 2011!!

  4. LOL you're a crack up girl :) Oh and resolutions are soooo over-rated LOL

  5. My new new year's resso is to get LOML and I matching headlamps!! We have blackouts all the time but I am not clever enough to think of wiling away the hours reading via headlamp. Love it.

    LOML will be disappointed, though, as he actually enjoys blackouts due to the ambience of candlelight lighting up something else... but really, headlamps!! x

  6. I've always liked things like sand clocks, lava lamps, and the like to kind of just fritter away time staring at it as a cut of catharsis. In a way, it helps me with meditation, to free emphasis and just think in the air nothing. That's why since I was a kid, in preference to of dolls and cars I've in any case sedate more of such pieces like sand clocks, lava lamps, harmonious boxes etc. So I was most pleased when I base the[url=] 2-Laser + LED Light Manifest Laser Ace Gyroscope with Music Effects[/url] from under the aegis the Toys section. It's like a tuneful belt, a spinning exceed, and a light reveal all rolled into one. Which is great entertainment! The gyroscope will whirl for around a minute. The laser enlightenment manifest with accompanying music makes this gyroscope a rather corresponding exactly toy that my friends be suffering with also been most amused with.

    My dogs are also pretty intrusive about the laser gyroscope I got from They each cleave to the gyroscope as it spins, although at principal they kept barking at the laser insight show, and also because it produces music. But after they got worn it, they've stopped barking but just keep following the gyroscope whenever I start spinning it. Kids are also unbelievably amused alongside it. Sometimes it's meet to possess fun toys about the ancestry so that you can leave the bit of frippery trifle with on while the kids are being amused or playing with it while you open to provide for foodstuffs or receive changed. The gyroscope is a particular such trinket with this purpose.

    The gyroscope I bought from has a dragon as a intent plot on it, and produces a dainty show with red, blue, and unripened colours. Take a look at the pictures I've uploaded of the gyroscope with laser joyful show. The music produced from the gyroscope is not that great but facts sufficiency to accommodate any chic guest to the house. The gyroscope is red and black, making it look exceedingly cool, and slightly arrogant with that dragon imprint.

    The music luminescence plain gyroscope runs on 6 LR44 batteries, which are replaceable anyway. I've also used this gyroscope to their heels my girlfriend during our anniversary celebration. I did the cheesy chore of decorating the hostelry room with roses and when I led her in, I started up the gyroscope as rise so that the laser brighten register produces a dreamed-up effect. I also had some battery operated candles so all the moonlight effects created a rather mawkish atmosphere. She loved it, not later than the style, to my relief. I also bought the candles from These days it seems to be my non-fulfilment shopping put suitable all gifts and ideas for romantic occasions.

    Since Christmas is coming, this laser light upstage gyroscope can dialect mayhap be a superb Christmas favour looking for the toddler or in spite of the favoured! Alternatively, the gyroscope can altogether be a polite totalling to the ordinary Christmas decorations. I can fancy placing it just about the Christmas tree and peradventure spinning it when guests reach in the house. Looks like [url=][/url] is getting my duty yet again!

  7. Wow. Maybe I should get a gyroscope rather than headlamps?
