The Party's Over

[Today's questions come courtesy of Sunday Brunch for January 4, 2004 ]

Now that the holidays are over... it's time to reflect...

  1. Which part of the holiday season are you most happy to see over?

  2. What is the biggest/best present or surprise you received during the holidays?

  3. How did you ring in the New Year?

  4. New Year's resolutions... do you make & break them, make them & stick to your guns or don't even bother?

  5. Has life returned to normal now that the holidays are over?


My thoughts...

  1. Which part of the holiday season are you most happy to see over?
    The traffic! We always tell each other "Drive more carefully; it's the Xmas season."

  2. What is the biggest/best present or surprise you received during the holidays?
    Our friend Gene surprised us each with a cranberry red chamois shirt from Eddie Bauer (just like his, which we had bth admired). And my parents gave us a very nice check!

  3. How did you ring in the New Year?
    First we had a great meal at Pasta Pomodoro! Then we came home and watched The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and Pirates of the Carribbean on video with cats nearby. Starting at about 11:15 pm we also had periodic fireworks displays going off all over the neighborhood. A typical celebration for us.

  4. New Year's resolutions... do you make & break them, make them & stick to your guns or don't even bother?
    Any resolutions I make are only coincidentally tied to the New Year. I try to keep the ones I make, with varied success.

  5. Has life returned to normal now that the holidays are over?
    That would be tomorrow, when Rich returns to work at SLAC.
