"You gotta get up, you gotta get up, you gotta get down..."
- Last Night A D.J. Saved My Life, Mike Cleveland
Tomorrow night, for the first time in 20 years (I kid you not), Mr. Gorgeous and I are going out on the town for New Year's Eve. And it's all because of our wonderful neighbors. One of the ladies from my GNO group made arrangements with the head chief and owner of a local restaurant for our motley group to ring in the New Year: a reasonably priced all you can eat/drink menu, only a few blocks from our home. So Mr. G is going to put on his Paris finery, I bought a gorgeous brilliant green satin mini from Jane (bien sur) and we're gonna paint the town. But the best part? There's a jukebox! You know how I love to dance ;-}
"I wanna take you away.
Let's escape into the music, D.J. let it play...
Keep on rockin' to it. Please don't stop the music."
But, just in case the jukebox's music selections are...lacking, I'm going to create a playlist, bring my iPod and an adapter. Which gets me to thinking: maybe I should clear the furniture out of my dining room and have a dance party myself. Make it an annual event - to usher in the return of the sun, warmth and green growing things. I could call it 'Spring Fling' - hmmmm. In the meantime, for those of you hosting or going to a New Year's Eve bash, I've created a 'ring in 2015' Paris Playlist. Enjoy!
