Welcome to 2009.
Compared to last year, I spent a quiet evening at home watching That’s Entertainment! on TCM and indulging in a New Mexico-style New Year’s dinner of burritos with green chile sauce and salad. My neighbors continued the tradition of welcoming the new year with fireworks, sparklers, and, at one point, the climax from the 1812 Overture and the finale of The Guns of Navarone.
Today will be a quiet day of reading — I am thoroughly enjoying Christopher Plummer’s autobiography In Spite of Myself — and perhaps catching a football game or two.
Best wishes to you and yours for the New Year from us — me — here at BBWW.
