It's 2007!

New Year's Eve was soooo much fun! We all got dressed up at my house and headed over to the Portuguese club for dinner and dancing. (Lindsay took a lot of pictures with her camera and I'll be talking to her about putting them up). We indulged in a three hour meal which included soup, salad, pasta and meatballs, fish, rice, green beans, turkey, roasted potatoes and dessert. I think there was more, but I can't remember what it was. It took us three hours to eat the entire supper and I refrained from the last few courses because I was stuffed. The rest of the night was spent dancing with my mom and Lindsay and Tenie. Some of the music was frightening-and for some reason the DJ's thought it would be a good idea to play Spanish and Italian music at a Portuguese club-but we managed to have a great time. After the ball dropped we all ran around wishing everyone Happy New Year's. I managed to accidentally spill one of the club's member's champaigne all over my arm when I hugged him, but all in all it was relatively incident free. Tenie likes to give me a hard time because the first words of 2007 I spoke to her were "ouch!" because I slammed my foot off of a chair trying to get to her. It was pretty funny. There was one song we danced to-that I think was called 'stroke it"-and the singer asks a bunch of questions in it. Tenie started answering the questions and she had to keep saying no because the singer was asking about the last time one had had sex. My mom nearly died laughing and told Christena she wasn't allowed to say no anymore, so Tenie started saying "yes" way too enthusiastically. I litterally fell over on the dance floor laughing.
We dropped my parents back at home around 1 or so and then Tenie, Lindsay Jetta-I picked her up because I missed her-and I headed over to our favourite hang out...you guessed it, Tim Hortan's. A couple of guys we knew from high school met us there and we stayed there until 4:30 just blabbing away. The one guy was very interested in feminism and he got me started on a topic I could talk about forever. Although he didn't agree with everything I said-which is fine-he was not aggressive about it. He just asked questions and we agreed to disagree on a few points. It was a great conversation. Even Tenie got in on it, which tells me that she has been living with me too long. :) It was after five when I finally crawled into bed. By the time we dropped Lindsay off and got home ourselves, Tenie and I were up long enough for the light of day to start peaking in the windows. It was a great New Year's celebration!
Today I head back to school. My bag is packed and I'm sort of ready to go back. It's been nice to be home and I miss everyone at school, but I'm not sure I'm ready for classes to start. Tomorrow I get to start the day with Sociological statistics. Yikes! But it's my only class on Wednesday, so that is a good thing as well.
Anyway, I'm off to have a shower and eat some breakfast-I need to get my ass out to the airport soon.
