The New Year is a funny thing for me. I don’t give two shits about staying up until it’s the New Year. Personally, I’ve always been just as happy to sleep through it, and wake up the next day when it’s the next year. Master is completely different. New Year’s Eve is incredibly important to him, especially a kiss at midnight, so, of course I oblige (happily)!
This year I woke up on New Year’s Eve, and I felt awful. Just completely out of it and in a total fog. I didn’t perk up until about 4:30, after Master left for work (thanks so much, body). Bleh. I thought I was gonna be alone on New Year’s, but happily S came over, and I wasn’t alone. We had a lot of fun, too. We played a lot of video games, drank a lot of mead, and ordered Chinese food. We even played a new card game, which was also fun.
Master got home around ten or ten thirty (I don’t remember which), and we all started drinking even more mead, and we played even more games. Right before midnight got here, I made us three penguin cups of mead (with only a sip or two in them), because I couldn’t find the champagn glasses. Whoops! I got a midnight kiss from Master, then a kiss from S. I’m a lucky kitty! I got two kisses!
I also got the first stripes of the year, which was nice. I can thank both S, and our biggest cane for those. <3 He he. After our midnight craziness, we hunted slaughterfish in old school Morrowind, Oblivion, and then Skyrim. Fun was had by all, and then at two AM we said goodbye to our guest and piled into bed ourselves. I didn’t wake up the next day until after eleven AM! Talk about sleeping in!
Of course, the next morning we got a call from my Mom letting us know that my brother’s wedding date is set. I mean, that’s a good thing, but as I’ve already mentioned, I have mixed feelings. We’re not close (as you can see. My brother wasn’t even the one to tell us the date, it was my Mom) and there’s no way I can get out of going home for the wedding, but at the same time – it is the worst time of year for me. It’s in October, (which is the one month I am absolutely slammed at the Mewtique), but also, that’ll be the month we’re packing up and moving to another place. We’re going to go back home, but October is going to be super, super busy for us both this coming year.. Bleh. Well, at least we’ve got nine months to plan for it.
