Here, yes.. And happy new year to everyone that is still checking back here for updates. Sorry for the lack of those recently..
Finished the final wedding of the year last night--New Year's Eve.. Instead of 200 people showing up, a mere 75 did.. The bride looked like she was in a clear "I don't want to get married" panic before she went to the dance floor and kissed her husband, donned in full white tuxedo from head to toe ..
The lack of enthusiasm about their new life together may have been due to unexecpted snow that hit New Year's Eve night in the Northeast.. Or just because they invited people at the last minute. Either way, I cannot judge..
It was after all, a pretty easy night. Sure I didn't spend New Year's Eve with my wife or anynone else.. instead, I left for work in 2009 and came home in 2010, getting a shower and making a frozen pizza and watching the Twilight Zone marathon the SyFy channel..
But the whole new year thing is a little overrated anyway, isn't it? The big moment of time turning at 12:01 am.. By 12:02 am most people are beginning to feel the deep buzz of liquor and the urge to sleep.. Calling it a night would be better than staying out until 2am when the crowds really get lit. Rough faces are all around you by that point.
But yes, there is also something special about a new year. It's a new day.. turning over a new leaf.. all that stuff.
And as 2009 ended, so did the wedding season at my secondary place of employment..And as it went out, I stood in the back of the restaurant peering at the hall, looking at the faces.. one stood out. A man that looked like a dead on appearance as the undertaker from PHANTASM.. I learned a little later that he even hit on a fellow server..Scary, but somehow fitting end to insanity in 09.
Happy 2010.. I'll try for more updates. Really I will.
