The soul has greater need of the ideal than the real for it is by the real that we exist, it is by the ideal that we live

Reflective, nah!

I'd love to say I'm feeling particularly pensive, alas I am not.

Things to do today not to mention I have to work 8 hrs. I must have made the handsome young man who makes my schedule angry somehow. He knows better than to schedule me today, let alone the hours he did.

Big deal getting my annual bottle of Veuve Clicquot yeterday. I went to my local purveyor of spirits and when I found it I almost had chest pains over the price. I looked at several others thinking to myself that since Moet was less expensive I might try that instead, but in the end deciding that I like what I like and it would be worth a trip across town to save over $20.

So over the river and through the woods I went. I located an aging, yet amiable twink who immediately helped me get a bottle out of the locked cabinet. Why it was locked I'll never understand.

Thoroughly satisfied with my purchase I proceeded home to put it in the fridge. I should just put it outside in the snow, it'd be colder.

I'll pick up a few things at the grocery while I'm there, and then come home to a few friends and some champagne. I've decided there needs to be strawberries and chocolate too. I'll light a fire, make a light pasta/scallops dish and have a few toasts. The new year comes but once a year, may as well have a nice one.

Tomorrow I am laying about, dreaming of Luke with croutons. Coy a la mode.

And so it goes:

Pass the chocolate and strawberries this way...!

Happy New Year...and how many times have we said that to each other? :)
