the first good day of the year

On NYE, Nic finished up her shift and got home with about 15 minutes to count down to the end of '08, which we spent drinking champagne out of martini glasses (couldn't find the flutes), being rather freaked out by Dick Clark's slurring, insistent presence on ABC, and smoochin'.

The next day, we had an all-day date that included sleeping in, a late breakfast at John St. Cafe, wandering around the mall, people-watching, taking pictures of graffiti, some home projects, listening and watching the rain, nearly going to see a movie, and nearly going to visit friends. We opted not to make dinner, but rolled down to Miss Delta (review here), which was packed, being one of the only neighborhood restaurants open on New Year's Day. Full and tipsy, we returned home to watch The Dead Girl (review here), one of our several Netflix offerings that have been gathering dust for over a month.

Sometime overnight, the all-day rain turned to snow and we woke to find about an inch had fallen and was already melting.

I didn't have a chance to watch Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve this year, but someone at the party I went to told me he wasn't on the air this year, and I sighed with relief. He WAS on air??

Yup, only in the studio, though, rather than on the street (or at least from what we saw). After the countdown, it looked like Ryan Seacrest took over.

He needs new batteries. The old ones have been running down since last year.

Poor Dick Clark, he really needs to think about staying away from the TV cameras. Every word he said i was cheering him on. "Come on Dick, you can do it! Finish that sentence!!!"
