Happy New Year!

Around the world, people are ringing in 2011...

Some could be considered certifiable. (The way I heard it, not many native New Yorkers actually ring in the new year in Times Square. I heard this from almost every editor I've ever worked with. I guess that's why I've always wanted to do it.)

Beautiful, isn't it?

A not so beautiful image: somewhere in New Jersey, the notorious Snooki will be dropped in a jumbo hamster ball. William has suggested she should be dropped into the Delaware River. I tend to agree. And the rest of the Jersey Shore cast should jump in to save her...and all get swept out to sea....

Now that would be a great start to 2011!

Tonight, as the ball drops in Times Square, two couples will be married there, at the base of the ball drop. I've always thought a New Year's Eve wedding was a great idea. New beginnings and all. Romantic, no matter how you look at it. They'll start the New Year as husband and wife. Two against the world. Or maybe joining forces to conquer it....

For myself, however, I'd have to go with April Fool's Day. Anyone who knows me will not be surprised.

I make no New Year's resolutions as this year comes to an end. That's like making rules, and I've always felt the only thing to do with a rule is...break it. I'd be defeating my own purpose, don't you think? 

Actually, as years go, 2010 wasn't bad at all. Some years have sucked big time. But there was a lot to like about 2010. I have a feeling 2011 is going to be even better. In fact, I'm willing to bet on it!


  1. Happy New Year, Norma! I've got a feeling it's going to be a good 2011.

  2. Love all the happy pictures! A toast to Norma from thedesertrocks!

  3. @Norma-We'll all be here to make sure that 2011 is a great year...!

  4. Happy New Year, Norma! 2011 is going to be great!! (BTW, were you serious about Snookie in a hamster ball?)

  5. Yes, Snooki was supposed to do that. Whether or not she did is another matter.

    Great image choices, Norma! I particularly like the Big Ben image.

    Instead of New York.... London on New Years Eve has a lot of appeal!

  6. Oh, there's Snooki!

    Whoever her ghost writer is, they'd better be getting hazard pay.

  7. My first editor told me she got hazard pay for working with me....

    Yeah, I found the Snooki photo a few minutes ago and just had to add it....

  8. Oh, you've got to be kidding me...hey, that's your blog title! Anyway, seriously though, she was dropped in that? Good lord!
