As I write this is it about 3:15 in the morning and I have not gone to bed yet, but I did celebrate the new year in the company of friends, indulging in champagne at midnight and some fan-friggin-tastic ritualistic shots of brandy with sugar and coffee coated limes (it was pretty fun) and giving the kids sparkling cider and letting them crash wherever they fell. Scanning the news channels is pretty uneventful this morning.
However, KRQE did have an interesting "Year in Review"
which brought to mind the fact that while many people were mourning the loss of the King of Pop, we had our own King to mourn this year: good ole Bruce. He was one of the truly sweetest men I ever met in my life.
Bar patrons taxed the Albuquerque taxi fleets.
Bank robberies, despite this week's activities, were down in 2008.
I am going to put this post to bed, and myself, and I wish you all the happiest of New Years.
