Spending New Year's Alone

    Don't get the wrong idea, y'all. This is just me. Your old pal Bendrr likes to spend the new year's eve in quiet solitude. My family understands that and they know I'm not blowing them off.

    Right now the TV is quietly playing the SciFi Channel's Twilight Zone marathon. There's a cold 12-pack of Miller Lites in the fridge, a few Lortabs to mellow the mood, and a Valium to summon the gentle sandman's pleasant dreams of a hopeful new year.

    In the midst of that, my coffee table is covered with an item of my re-discovered hobby. My earlier post of a picture of a model car is that new hobby. No, not Rebel flags. Model cars. I just finished that one. The Dukes of Hazzard General Lee. Every part trimmed and painted. The body was primered, painted with 3 coats of the closest Orange I could find to the original General's orange, decals applied, then two coats of hi-gloss clear-coat.

    Right now I'm taking a break from the Dodge Viper I've been working on. The others I have yet to do are a Bugatti EB-110, Lamborghini Koenig Countach, and a Lamborghini Diablo.

    And yes, I also have (suprise suprise) a model kit of The A-Team Van.

    By the time I finish this Viper, I'll be needing stronger glasses.

    Happy New Year!

    Right now I see Hillbilly and SheilaM are out there, it probably will increase closer to midnight. Maybe?

    Bendrr, I'm sooooo jealous! I wish I could spend it alone too. Well, i could, but unlike your family n' friends who seems to understand this about you, if i do spend it alone i'm sure to end up starting the new year off PAYING for it if I try to stay home. Some o' the peoplez i care about jus don't understand this about me, they take it all personal like when I say i'd rather meditate than hang with them for the night. lol

    Well, one of these years after I'm finished experimenting with the whole "giving in ta peer pressure" thing (itz all new ta me), i most certainly WILL spend a new year's in peace and quiet ALONE!!!



    ps - CHEERS, happy new year ta Gopher and RubyTuesday too!!!!

    I'm really home alone! Anyways, I took in an early movie, "catch me if you can" a true story of a con-artist and today he is legally making millions! How and why? Go see.

    I missed all the New Year's action last night because I fell asleep during the commercials. On well, 'there's next year'.

    Good health to everyone.
