Happy 2008!

For the first New Year's Day that I can recollect, I didn't wake up with a hangover. I didn't drink any alcohol on New Year's Eve and I'm okay with that. Usually, New Year's Eve has been a time to get totally plastered but it was so much nicer to hang out with my niece.

The niece and I went to The Land Of The Mouse yesterday. We spent many hours waiting in line to ride different rides and got to see the whole theme park lit up with Christmas lights. She proclaimed to me a few times, "This is the best day of my life!" On the way home from the park, we decided that we would go get snack foods and play cards while watching the best movie ever (Nacho Libre) and just stay up til we passed out. We also stopped and got a couple of big fireworks to set off. Sylvie(8) was beside herself with excitement. After her bath she told me that she was going to put her party pajamas on. And what goes best with party pajamas? The pirate gear that you bought at The Happiest Place On Earth.

It's a pirate's life for me! La-la-la!

The finale!

She has a whole crazy little song and dance routine that she made up. She tosses her hat off at the end. It tickles me that out of all of the princess crap that she could have purchased at the park that she chose pirate stuff.

Oh! She gave me proof day before yesterday that freaking crazy runs in my family. When we were in line waiting to get on rides, I noticed that she kept digging at her ears. She'd put some new earrings in the day before and I thought maybe they were bugging her. I finally ask her if she has an earache or what. She explains to me that she is cramming the hair on her head into her ears as far as it will go because it feels nice and scratchy when you pull the hair out slowly. Oooookay...Little nutball.

Your niece and I have something in common.

Although, while she's stuffing hair INTO her ears...I'm feverishly trying to keep up with the hair coming OUT of my ears.

Getting old sucks ass.

Happy New Year. Glad you survived sans headache.

It's a testament to your relationship with her that she told you the truth about the ear and hair thing.

Nieces rock!! Pirate nieces rock even more!

You know you tried it when she wasn't looking...I know I'm tempted...

Happy New Year! Are you sure that you didn't give her the idea of putting hair into her ears? I bet it helps pass the time while you are waiting in line. And everyone wants to know: Did you try it yourself?

P.S. She is a cutie.

Lol, LOL...That does sound like a "Chickie" kind of thing....LOL!

Sylvie is just darling! And I think it is great that she chose Pirate stuff! There had to be Lady Pirates somewhere, don't you think? Well, if not, there should have been!

Old Ladyof the hills,
some history's most notorious pirates were women! See Mary Read and Ann Bonney...
