This is what happens when you're ambivalent about making New Years plans. The tricky yet beautiful little concept of spontaneity. Allowing yourself to be open to an infinite number of possibilities at any given moment can yield pretty phenomenal results.
And last night, it resulted in an impromptu Grand Sichuan feast. All delivered right to our door in thirty minutes flat and enjoyed with copious amounts of deliciously lively and frisky bubbles to wash it all down. How's that for spontaneity?!
What'd you think I was going to say? We decided to go sky diving? Please. Who in their right mind would ever willingly want to do that? And why on Earth would I ever be open to doing such a thing? Psh. You crazy.
Wanna talk about thrill-seeking? Try eating Dan Dan Noodles with Chili Sauce and not muttering an expletive. It's packing heat in ways I didn't know were possible.
Bring it, 2011. I'm feelin' good about you. Real good.
