‘Tis the Season to be Tacky
Not to worry, kids — my holiday grousing is almost over for another year. But I do have one last word.
You have to admit, this is the time of year for decorating excess. Of course, some people don’t wait for December to be tasteless. In John’s neighborhood, there is a house that has become a sort of landmark. Why? Because they have three giant pink flamingos in their front yard, year round. So, what’s tackier than giant pink flamingos?
That’s right. Three giant pink flamingos with Santa hats on.
Tomorrow night, New Year’s Eve, John and I will have a quiet night. I’m going over there sometime in the afternoon with dinner and a movie, and he has champagne. It’ll be just me, my sweetie, some bubbly and the fireplace — my kind of NYE. 🙂
I’m kind of glad to be saying goodbye to 2012, honestly. In many ways, it was a tough year, with losses large and small. The two toughest, of course, being my mother’s passing and ST exiting. There was a lot of stress, with work (or lack thereof), a seemingly neverending and ugly election, John’s health issues, tragic current events.
However, there were good times, too. We went to Boardwalk Badness for the first time, for example! And to offset the losses was a tremendous, priceless gain… Mr. D, who went from Mr. Possible to Mr. Definite, a wonderful friend and play partner. His timing couldn’t have been more perfect.
So, here’s to 2013, for all of us. I wish my friends a peaceful year, with much love, good health and fun times. And lots of spanking, of course!
Be safe tomorrow night, y’all. ♥
