Happy New Year Happy People :D

...and may 2009 be your best-est year ever. Ever.

Jan and I had a lovely New Years Eve with some of our friends on Saba. And the predicted bad hangover on 1st January ;)

For some bizarre reason, Jan decided a while ago that he wants to quit booze & cigarettes in 2009. Fair enough. We all know of my more angelic personality aspects and hence.....I said I'd do the same. I thought supporting him would be - if not the right then at least - the nice thing to do. Duuuuuuh.

Anyway, my strategy was to get really drunk and smoke lots on NYE, so that we'd have a horrible hangover and breathing problems on the 1st. That way we wouldn't have any problems with the transitions. That part of it worked just fine.

True enough. But then of course a couple of my friends asked me out yesterday and it dawned on me that there is NO way I can deal with the night life on Saba whilst being sober. Doesn't work that way. Meaning I didn't go.

And of course we all know that a really good meal isn't the same without a glass of wine. And a romantic evening isn't the same either when you say "here's to you Darling" with Gatorade in the champagne flute.

So here I am: the Queen of Whatever, dedicated to life enjoyment.......minus the romance, good dinners, fun nights out and the joy of feeling a bit more human than angelic. Hhhhmmmmm, once again it would seem I've taken the wrong turn somewhere.....

The most comforting thought these days is that I'm pretty sure it's not going to last too long ;))

Lotsa xxx t'y'all
