Happy new year! Can you believe it? I love new years eve, and I love the first day of a brand spanking new year. Today I’ve so far spent my day watching Shark Tank on television, eating Ramen and cookie dough, and editing a short film. Later I will try and commence part of my resolution list, and go to the gym. I celebrated Christmas day at Hard Rock Cafe while Rick was working his perfect butt off making a lot of tips. But Christmas eve Rick and I spent the whole day together as he surprisingly got the day off, and we were visited by Udell and Danielle in the afternoon and had some family fun together. Rick and I celebrated a Norwegian-style Christmas eve, with stockings opened in the morning while eating breakfast and watching Christmas tv. Then Dressing up, eating dinner followed by opening the presents. Teddy got a nice new Green shirt, and looked very Christmassy indeed. I got a Stunning ruby ring I’ve been admiring longingly for a while, and Rick got a football, suspenders, some nice face-creams that he usually steals samples from in the store all the time, and a customized calendar with photos from our year together. And he also got a generous gift from his dad, a tablet that he struggled to look away from when I demanded his attention for fun and games. The fancy clothes didn’t stay on long, someone is more comfortable in his underwear staring at a screen… We ate Ribs from Tony Roman’s Rib house, as we had a gift certificate, and none of the slaughter houses wanted to provide me with the Pork Flank I tried to order a month ago to attempt my first home-cooked Christmas meal. But never fear, I ate so much food, candy and chocolates the whole night, and enjoyed my first Coca-cola since november as I had taken a break. Rick and I went out for a day of fun the other day, as Rick had to work double shift many days, and I babysat and worked in the pirate booth we felt like we deserved a celebration. We went to Dave & Busters for some fun and games, and a nice meal, as we had gotten some great coupons, saving money with tons of fun! We then cycled to the Dole Cannery Cinema and saw ‘The Imitation Game’ with our free movie tickets that we got for Christmas from our dear friend Annie. We THEN stopped off at a really awesome Sushi restaurant after the movie, and had a second amazing meal. It was a great day! New years eve I had organized a party with our friend Dezmond, who had access to his friends awesome pad up in St. Louis Heights that has a great view and lots of fun games. We had such a great time in that big house, dreaming about the day we would have our own big beautiful place. Friends trickled in and we ate, talked and laughedAnd we played games, Pool, Foosball and shuffleboard. It was a wonderful time! Judging by the quality of the party, the company, the level of fun, the incredible view over the midnight fireworks and the Honolulu/Waikiki skyline, if 2015 is going to be as good as the party then I am looking forward to it.
