Should be an interesting New Year’s Eve. I was asked to bartend at a party for a local celebrity, sort of. (I mean, I really was asked to bartend. It’s the “local celebrity” that I say “sort of” to.) Anyway, he’s very wealthy, and it’s going to be all old people, so I should rake in the tips. I hope. Only three hours, will be done by 11. Am sad I won’t be spending the whole night with George, but obviously I need the money. Bad. But will be out by midnight. The bad thing is, since I’m working from 10-7 at B&N, I’ll only have an hour to get home, change and get to this guy’s house for the party. Yikes. Maybe we’ll get out early at the Barn.
Had a nice Christmas gathering with the Baton Rouge kids. We met at Candace’s house, had dinner, I read a Christmas story (practicing my storytelling, don’t you know) and then we opened presents. I got good loot – a fondue pot from Teresa, one of those painted scene/beaded purses from Candace, and a gift certificate to Michaels (already spent) and a candle and wine charms from Chris and Rebecca. All in all, good fun.
Then yesterday I spent half of my Old Navy gift certificate. Let me just say that shopping is so so so much more fun when things fit!
