A New Beginning
Happy 2007, everyone!
I had a nice New Year's Eve. I played hostess with the mostest and had some musician friends over to my place for an evening of chamber music, followed by a night of heavy drinking and carousing.
I made a huge pot of chili, and we ate and drank and hung out and watched this poor man on tv.
I admire Dick Clark's ability to recover from his stroke and still host the New Year's Eve show. But it's still a little painful to watch him struggle in front of the camera with impaired speech after all these years. Isn't he rich enough to retire yet?
But last night was fun. And if you had stood in the hallway outside my apartment right before midnight, you would have heard the raucous strains of Shostakovich's 8th String Quartet interspersed with the sound of fireworks and Auld Lang Syne.
Good times. #
