You know you're lame when it's New Year's eve and your mom's too busy to talk because she's making Long Island Iced Teas for friends and your four-year-old niece has to get off the phone immediately because she's off to a party. C'est la vie, as they say in New Orleans. So did you watch 'Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve' on TV? I guess he had a stroke recently; he seemed to have trouble talking, and it was hard to watch. Of course Ryan Seacrest is hard to watch too. I don't know if it's because (A) he makes you feel lazy for having one job instead of 10, (B) his teeth are blindingly white or (C) he's just generally annoying. (Probably B.) On to another big topic this time of year – New Year's resolutions. Did you make any? My friend suggested having your friends make resolutions for you. We didn't get very far, but we didn't try really hard. Enough blabbing… after all the year is young. Happy New Year!
