I’m enjoying a day off today. Last night was the first New Year’s Eve that I ever spent in the Central Time Zone (or any time zone other than the Eastern), so I actually watched the ball drop in Times Square at 11 a.m. What an odd feeling. Do the people on the West Coast watch Dick Clark at 9:00?
I spent a good chunk of my evening playing Uno one-on-one (uno a uno?) with Susan’s youngest. It was variation called Uno Attack, in which cards are drawn by a machine that spits them out all over the place. Those marketing geniuses at Mattel. She loves pushing the button on that machine. Anyway, she’s pretty good at it for six years old.
