New Years Activities

New Year's Eve we had breakfast with Lidarose before she had to fly home. We went to a place in Pasadena that we used to go to in college. Good nostalgia. We were going to go to the Norton Simon art museum while we were in town, but they didn't open for a couple hours, so we went home.

I had planned a nice New Year's celebration for the two of us at home. I got "the finest meats and cheeses" from Trader Joe's with a sparkling pomegranate juice for me and a "Bag o' Mystery Beer" for him.

But, party animal that I am, after watching the ball drop live in NY, I went to bed at 9:20pm. Curtis said he stayed up until midnight by himself.

New Year's Day, instead of going to the Rose Parade, we dropped Thomas off to play with one of Curtis's students and her mom. We went to another Met live opera broadcast. This time it was Humperdink's Hansel and Gretel, a delightful bit of fluff, with wonderful, whimsical costumes. It is also a very gender-bending opera. Hansel is sung by a woman, the witch by a man, and the Sandman by a woman.
