Beanpaste's Not-So-Terribly-Rockin' New Year's Eve

Once upon a time, in the halcyon days of the late nineties, I may or may not have celebrated New Year's Eve at parties, dancing to ABBA, wearing roller skates, all while drinking champagne directly from the bottle. Hypothetically.

These days, my New Year's festivities look a bit more like this:

I'm folding laundry, drinking coffee and watching cartoons with this girl:

The cartoons are from "The Golden Age of Animation" giant four-disc set, a Christmas gift from Auntie Pirt (Hi, Auntie Pirt!).

Ellie loves them, and, though most are charming, a few of the cartoons are wildly weird, moderately disturbing, and chock-full of old-timey violence. Shotguns feature heavily.

So, yes, things are pretty quiet around here. Though, on an exciting note, I'm starting the year with a squeaky clean fridge. Sex-ay.

Wait a minute...what's that back behind the heavy cream and applesauce?

Oh, my. You get me some "Fernando" and a pair of size-10 roller skates, and we've got ourselves a party. See you in '08, baby.

LOL - Par-tay!

Happy New Year!

It's rough, with little ones. We got to celebrate with friends down the road and the kids were welcome to party and romp too.

(It was a dorm room party theme and the kids had Jr. Jungle Juice at their disposal.)

Happy new year to you, and your family too.

(I love the header at Mrs. G's. Superb.)

Professor J said...

Happy New Year! I wish you happiness and health this year.

Nora Bee said...

It sounds perfect. Happy 2008!

Rima said...

For some reason I too, always associate New Years with ABBA. But the roller skates, now that's a nice touch!

Mrs. G. said...

I hope it was a good one. We had a raucous game of gin rummy (my least favorite form of gin), some peanut M&Ms and some sparkling blueberry cider. Happy New Year, friend.

stephanie said...

Funny, I was just reflecting that last New Year's Day we were watching "Mamma Mia!" in Portland. I wish I'd had roller skates though...And a box of wine.

I love Mrs. G's new header, too :)

Mary Ann said...

So great! We rang in the new year by playing old school Atari games like Yars Revenge, Centipede, and Canyon Bomber. Woot woot!

Christina. B said...

Happy New Year!

Saucy said...

Melanie, I am here because Mrs. G sent me and I go where she goes. Looks like a Bean Paste Rockin' Eve, all right. I live in Canada but brought me back some of that Baby Sofia and enjoyed heavily... very nice choice. See more of you in 2008.

K said...

I'd like to have a word with you about those champagne minis. They are, apparently, totally unavailable in Indiana. I know this because I read your post on your favorite things and though, "Mmm, those sound fantastic." I then proceeded to visit every liquor store IN THE STATE. Couldn't find them anywhere. So quit blogging about them, or mail me some. You can't tease like that. You can't do that to a fellow blogger.

Melanie said...

Dear All: Thanks for your kind wishes for the new year, and BIG thank you for continuing to read this drivel. You make my day, every day.

Saucy: I love Canada, but I am saddened to hear you do not have baby champagne cans. Pourquoi-Pas?? Is it all the beer, already in cans and everything?

K: WHAT? Indiana, what gives? I am flabbergasted that Idaho would have something that Indiana does not (other than all those white supremacists, I mean). K, e-mail me your mailing address, for real. We need to talk about this situation.

Amy the Mom said...

I'm amazed that you are ten years younger than me...what with the Barbie Dream House and the roller skating to Fernando. I'm happy to know that I wasn't the only one whose Barbie was also in a constant state of mortal peril.

BipolarLawyerCook said...

I could not find the cans anywhere! We had to "settle" for a bottle of Sofia instead. We all barely made it to midnight, and then promptly went to bed.

Melanie said...

amy: I'm 30, but I party like I'm 40 Or possibly 78.

BLC: What gives? Maybe these are a west of the Mississippi type thing.
