RINGING IN THE NEW YEAR

Well, here we are again, at the end of another year, and I have only high hopes for next year, and hope we all come through with the state of things. As social, and as much as I love attending parties, New Years Eve is always my time to opt to have a small intimate dinner party for a few very good friends. I usually prepare, what I should be doing now mind you, a platter for all kinds of italian sliced meats and cheeses, various nuts, olives, figs and chilled shrimp, followed by a fillet mignon and crab cake dinner. With accompanying libations all evening. And we will watch balls drop. I mean, watch the ball drop. The delivery has already made....
 Some of my hints for the night....
I usually make the guest dress up, but tonight, have added masks for them!!! I've always wanted to do a mask or wig party! Then on New Years Day, when I get back my facility's, I cook a pork and sauerkraut dinner with all the fixin's and we watch the Mummers Parade here in Philadelphia. The only thing that will be missing is Dagny from San Francisco, who was to attend, but had some changes in plans and will visit in the later winter. Probably a good thing....there's not enough bubbly for the two of us, let alone guest!!! We always end up in a compromising position...... 

The house boys weren't happy.

But while reading some blogs today, I stopped by Mistress MJ's blog the Infomaniac, where I was reminded by our recently deceased, dear gigastar of fashion and life,  Kabuki Zero who was a swell person and  fabulous fashionista,  who was quite something. And ever entertaining. Poor Kabuki passed away over the Christmas holiday, but Kabuki will always be here with us....in some form. But dear Kabuki reminded me as bad as a year can get, there are always bright spots. This year came and went, but for me wasn't all bad.  Here are some things I found great pleasure in.

Running nude in the woods,  my Calvin's.  G&T's, my Trump dart board, jet skiing (even though I can't swim a lick),watching my BBC old comedies, spa dates,lounging with Buster, sleeping in my huge wrought iron canopy bed and pretending I'm Jean Harlow, feeling the sand beneath my feet, hearing the ocean, unwrapping the sparkling Christmas balls, watching the bird arboretum out the window, sport nookie with the Lad, and I always enjoy a passionate kiss from a man. And next year I already have some things to look forward to like a surprise river cruise trip from Warbucks,  and a trip to Buenos Aires, which I have been 
salving for, for some time.And I won't make the same mistakes Eva Peron made. And just the other day, dear old Lady Bunny emailed and announced she is coming to New Hope. That should be a royal mess. So dear Kabuki has taught me, even thought the world may be harsh, it's the small earthly delights that make me happy. And maybe next year will find the Mistress settling with just one man.


Wellllllll, lets not talk crazy just yet.

A Happy New Year to you all!!!!!!
🎈🎉✨💋🍸

  1. I've seen more balls drop than a Selma Street hustler, but that's beside the point.
    Your New Years Eve sounds absolutely perfect. I've always preferred small, intimate gatherings to ring in the new year.

    Have a fabulous time and a fantastic new year!!!

    Kisses at midnight XXXX

    1. That's for the pre-party. Our usual shipment is by the tanker truck.

    2. Anne Marie, why yes, it is plural for special occasions. If it's just an average night like a Wednesday in the middle of summer, one truck will do.

      Cali Boi, when Maddie goes to Buenos Aires, I'm going too. We've discussed it for years. You might want to start a fund for our bail money.
