We decided to be low key this year, inviting our friend Clark over for some great Chinese take out, a cheesy movie (Casa de Mi Padre), some Kathy Griffin making poor Anderson Cooper blush and protect his taffy, and some homemade banana and nutella bread pudding. When midnight rolled around, we watched the Queen Mary fireworks from the warmth of the apartment -- a nice, clear view from the big living room window. And now, we're going to see Les Misérables. So let's get this New Year started!!
