Things around here were at a slow pace after a wild and crazy New Year's Eve. The evening started out tame enough as I watched the Indiana Hoosiers defeated the #2 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes. So they have defeated #1 and #2 within a three week period of time. Then a decision had to be made. I could either take my two left feet to the rec hall where they had a live band and lots of booze or I could watch the Big Band Theory TV marathon. Being a live on the edge sort of party animal I opted for the TV Marathon. This went on until about 10 pm when things really picked up and four pieces of bread were pulled out, toasted, buttered and sugar and cinnamon was added and one more Dr. Pepper was opened so that the ensuing sugar rush would carry me through to the new year. The plan worked and I made it to 12:15.
Yesterday was the beginning of the recovery process and while many of my neighbors were holding their heads my day started pain free. The day was overcast, the wind was blowing and football was playing and it was a good idea to sit inside and watch the game. The pain started when watching the poor performance of the Bronco's, but even though the Broncos lost so did Oakland and that made the Broncos division champs and the pain went away.
Today is another football day and it will begin right after the Rose Parade. Looking at all the pretty floats is another way to enjoy the good life.
