It is a new year and a new me. And I am so excited. Ok. I should note it is not really a new me. It is old Mimi. Same old me. I am just having fun being me. I have been dancing in the middle of the day singing to tune after tune. I am finally catching up with the new music out there. I just discovered the song Location by Khalid. Had heard about that song in passing but hadn’t made time to listen to (or rather seek out) new music. I am hoping that my singing voice gets further tuned up and that my dance moves get sharper. I have to get ready for an ’80s party I am to attend this week as part of my networking with new colleagues How cool is that? Who should I go dressed up as? I am thinking Madonna. But then again, that is too easy. I need to think about this carefully. Any suggestions will be highly welcomed. Maybe Prince? Oh, let me think about it a bit more as I have digresed a little. Again. See, it’s not really a new me. I still digress. Big time. And it still feels fabulous to me.
Anyway, back to the story at hand. As part of my random meetings, I am being made to feel like I am back in New York. Meeting with people who speak a million words a minute, drink a glass of wine here and there, and can go from silly topic to serious to craziness in a hot second. My brain and wit needs to stay sharp. We are now doing random music trivia at our various meetings spots. Which is partly why I am just taking in all the music I can. Several years back, we took my son on a cruise for his birthday. I won two trophies for my music and celebrity knowledge. I take these contests seriously as I am quite competitive.
With all this going on, I have taken to now making sure that my house has enough bottles of Chardonnay for all my new guests and friends.
Sadly, I cannot drink very much wine due to me being allergic to wine. Who knew there was such a thing? Well, in particular I am allergic to red wine. Which, to be honest with you, was never my thing. I don’t like warm alcohol. I prefer German white wines. And I can still handle those. Or rather my sinuses still tolerate those. Anyway, it appears that Chardonnay is an all around feel-good wine that works for almost any occasion.
Thus, I am singing while I stock up on my home’s wine and liquor collection. The goal for this year is to have more fun cause I’m worth it.
