Happy New Year

If anyone notices the time of this post you will now how crazy our night was. It all started with me hitting a local boutique grocery store and picking up some food for dinner. I consisted of some nice cut fruit, baby greens, a spinach and feta pizza and a peanut better & chocolate chip dessert ball for dessert. Of course there was bottle of the bubbly for Robin and I and some blue cream soda for Nora and Nigel. We ate well and had a nice time. Robin won the prize for staying awake the latest, 9:30. She is a party animal. Personally, I cannot remember the last time I rang in the New Year outside of running a restaurant.

Today will be spent in front of the t.v. There are bowl games galore, and the Rose parade to watch. I will be faithfully cheering on my beloved Wolverines. They are going to send Coach Carr out on a high note. I will also be keeping an eye on The Illini. It would be great to see them knock off the Trojans.

I think the New Year deserves a special word of the day. The theme is newly coined words.

adultescent (uh-duhl-TES-uhnt) noun

An adult whose activities and interests are typically associated with
youth culture.

[Blend of adult and adolescent. The term was first noticed in 1996 in
a trade publication called Precision Marketing. Marketers love to come
up with new ways to slice their demographics. Another such term is tween.

While I worked in the restaurant business I was forced to take on the traits of the
youth who worked for me in order to relate to them and therefore better manage them.
You might even say I was an adultescent. They all thought I was pretty groovy. That's
still a hip word, right.

Well, I'm Audi, word to your mother.

Cheers and Happy New Year.

Chris
