What are you doing New Year's, New Year's Eve?

Do you know that song? Ella Fitzgerald sings it best. Just in case you were curious.

It's less than 6 hours from 2010 in Germany and I'm blogging from the kitchen while I listen to the Germans go crazy with the fireworks (no 4th of July here, so NYE is IT for fireworks) and whip up a batch of Russian Tea. I have no idea why it's called Russian Tea, but I do know that it's delicious. We have guests coming over in about an hour and a half. Champagne, wine, and beer are chilling. Shrimp are thawing. Chips are chipping, cheese tray is cheesing and Russian Tea is brewing. The house smells like a holiday made for TV special. I have nothing really to post about, but I couldn't let the year and the decade (remember 10 years ago tonight when everyone was sure the entire world computer network was going to crash sending us back to the stone age? Yeah, that's funny now) end without posting something.

I wish you all a glorious, safe, peaceful new year and look forward to all the things this next decade will bring. If it happens to bring flying cars and household robots who cook and clean, it will be the best decade ever.
Happy New Year everyone and I'll see you in 2010!

Play this. You won't regret it.

OH good ol' y2k. I laugh just thinking about it. My 2 older brothers were hilarious. They had moved up to Montana and were living on 30 acres. They bought a food storage type business hoping to make a killing due to the 'scare' of y2k. They also had big plans of building a bunker and living off of the land if needed.

Happy New Year!! Blog on!

Looking back on it, the Y2K hysteria is pretty amusing! I never bought into it all, but I sure did have a good time partying like the world just might end :) Aw, the good ol' days, lol!

A friend of mine's parents lived in Germany for a few years and she was there one NYE and said that their celebrations were awesome! I'm looking forward to my first NYE out in a few years! Happy 2010!!
