Oh Nein!

For the English/German speakers in the bunch, this new year will--per the homophony--seem to radiate quite a bit of negativity.

Oh well.

So far, Oh-Nein has started out just terrific for my family.

My son was invited to spend New Year's Eve at a sleepover party. Well, the younger sister was a just bit jealous and told Jack that this was how our New Year's Eve went:

"Well, first we had sushi. And then we met the Jonas Brothers. And they took us in their private jet to Hawaii. And Barak Obama was the pilot. And then we swam with dolphins."

Not a bad way to party like it's oh-oh-nein. Well, maybe she embellished. Just a little. In reality, we did go out for lots of sushi. And the sushi place had a projector playing a concert of somebody who might look like a Jonas Brother in about twenty years. But I don't remember anything resembling Hawaii, dolphins or Barak Obama. Maybe it was a premonition. We can hope. We did pull plenty of poppers and we did dance in the living room like nobody was watching. So, all in all a great way to start Oh Nein.

I don't have much for eye candy, except the day's mouth candy.

Happy New Year! Love to you all!
