Happy New Year. Didn't have a good start to the New Year. I'm obviously not a drinker. I had half of a glass of champagne at midnight last night (and it was a small glass) and felt sick. This morning I was sick. I don't know if it was from a mixture of foods yesterday, the guy in the next cubicle at work who kept saying he had been sick for the last 4 days, but needed to come to work or that darned half glass of champagne.
I'm missing all the sales. My sis called from the mall and asked which little present I wanted to get for the new grandbaby (baby's first Christmas ornament, Christmas 08). She's a keeper of a sister. :D

Back in the day my New years hangover prevention/cure was to quit drinking on about January 3rd or 4th.:p

It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

Happy New Year, folks. Hope y'alls had a good'un.
TOTD: Sleeping it off has always been the best way for me. A couple of break days for a really, really heavy session. The older I get the more time I need. That's just the way it is with old farts, I guess.
But now, for some time, I have a long-term policy of not waking up on Jan 1 with a hang-over, having had a couple of distant years where I couldn't remember how I even got home. Plus, it's no more booze for me until April 1, 2009.
I had a few last night, but nothing excessive. Got up at about mid-day, and drove the car to LHR to get it cleaned in- and out- by the Ukranian car cleaning crew on the A4 near the Terminal 1/2/3 turnout. Then drove my shiny "new" (it really needed cleaning, salt all over it) 911 at a reasonable pace, there being little traffic, to my friends' place and had a few soft drinks and pizza with them.
A good, easy start to the new year. It was a very good day. Hope the rest of the year is as good.
Hope everyone has a greyt 2009.
