Almost there...

I think this year's New Year's Day could've just as easily been called National Laziness Acceptance Day. I didn't make it out of my pajamas until 3:30 in the afternoon, and then it was only because I knew that I wanted to do at least one thing besides watch tv all day. When I realized that I would soon be getting a phone call from my grandmother asking whether or not I had consumed the obligatory black eyed peas for prosperity in the new year, I decided to make an old fashioned southern dinner for friends. I had Rick call a few folks, and we ended up convincing Cyrus, Athena, Mice and Wendy to join us for dinner. I got dressed and headed to Safeway only to find that they were completely out of all forms of black eyed peas - dried, canned, and frozen! Luckily, the Albertson's down the street saved me. Frozen black eyed peas to the rescue! I made chicken fried steak, cornbread, grits, and black eyed peas. At dinner, everyone around the table confessed that when Rick called, they were still lounging around in their jammies too. When I came back to work yesterday, everyone around the office was commenting on how lazy they had been yesterday as well. Mario (the project functional lead) never managed to get dressed at all yesterday. So, I guess it's up ot me to declare New Year's Day as National Lazy Bum Day. Loafers of the world unite!
