First post of the year. Happy New year, folks!



Oh the joys of not drinking.

Happy New Years! I drank some Cherry Pepsi earlier...otherwise I would have conked out at 9:30. I suppose I could read, but I'm really not that awake

Happy new year everyone! How did I celebrate? I read a book.

Catch-22 sure is a good one.

What a way to start! (and I like your Previous/Now/Next signature, aquablue)

Happy New Year all! The lady and I found ourselves taxi-less at half past two, resulting in a freezing early morning walk across central Madrid and - for me - not nearly enough sleep before duty called...

Oh, okay. The reason why asked is because I lived in Madrid for two years.

Happy New Year all! I drank far too much and sang some songs in the Bookbinders (my local). It was excellent, though I had somewhat of a sore head this morning. Ah well.

Happy New Year all. After retiring at 4:00 am this morning, I was not good for much when I got up later in the day. I did manage to finish Young Hearts Crying and read I Am Mary Dunne- both book from my TBR pile. Off to a good start with the reolutions!
