OK Everyone!  This is my New Year's Eve and New Year's day entry.  I won't have a chance to write one tomorrow.
I hope you will all have a safe and sane New Year's eve and if you are out partying be sure to have a designated driver or never leave the party!! LOL
I hope my dear friends will have the best 2008.  It's time to kiss 2007 goodbye as well as kiss someone sweet at the stroke of Midnight!  Make today, tomorrow and beyond the first day of the rest of you life and be sure to be positive, happy, loving, caring and giving of yourself.  That's not too much to ask.  I love you all and hope you will be around in January! 

Auld Lang Syne

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And days of auld lang syne!

For auld lang syne, my dear
For auld lang syne,
We’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet
For auld lang syne!

We twa hae run about the braes,
And pu’d the gowans fine,
But we’ve wander’d mony a weary foot
Sin’ auld lang syne.

We twa hae paidl’t in the burn
Frae morning sun till dine,
But seas between us braid hae roared
Sin’ auld lang syne.

And there’s a hand, my trusty fiere,
And gie’s a hand o’ thine,
And we’ll tak a right guid willie-waught
For auld lang syne!

And surely ye’ll be your pint-stoup,
And surely I’ll be mine!
And we’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet
For auld lang syne!


What entry of mine would be complete without a couple of surveys from the official survey Ho of J-land.  So enjoy!  Catch you on the flip side!

You Had a Fantastic Year!
Compared to most years, last year was definitely great.
Overall, you're living a much better life than you were twelve months ago.
And nothing is a better mark of a good year.
Here's to hoping next year is even better!
Your Famous Last Words Will Be:
"Nice doggy."
You Are A Gold Girl
You're dependable and hard working. You never miss a deadline - and you're never late.
You have a clear sense of right and wrong. You're very detail oriented.
You get frustrated when your friends are sloppy - or when they don't follow through.
You're on top of things, and you wish that everyone else was!

Today is New Year's Eve Eve Day

Hi Everyone!  Here it is the 30th of December.  Wow.  Less than two days it will be 2008.  I feel like it was just 1998 and I was graduating from high school.  Now I'm an old woman. JK  LOL
I had a very nice Christmas and by the looks of it you all did too.  I had breakfast with my sister this morning at IHOP.  It was so good.  I had to have a Belgium Waffle after talking to someone last night I couldn't get it out of my head.
There isn't much going on around here today.  Just hangin' out, resting for tomorrow night and Tuesday.  Heather's New Year's Eve party, the Rose parade (that is if I don't have a terrible hang over LOL) and the Rose Bowl game are all on tap.  Are you doing anything exciting for the New Year?  I hope so.  I do want to catch a little of Dick Clark's Rockin' New Year's eve because Carrie Underwood is supposed to be on there . . . I guess I can dvr it.
Well that is about all for this beautiful Sunday.  I will of course leave you with a survey or two, well maybe three for my peeps  LOL.  Thanks to everyone for being a part of my journal this year.  Luv ya!  TTFN
Guys Think You're Easy to Be With... But Not Easy
You're definitely a flirt - and a good one.
But you also know that you shouldn't make a move on any cute guy who passes by.
You save your seductive moves for someone who already knows the real you.
That way, your sex appeal is just part of the whole package.
Your Pirate Name Is...
Arch-Pirate Wicked Wilma
Argh matey!  Don't you be messin' with Wicked Wilma or you shall walk the plank!! LMAO
You are a Look Before You Leap, Yellow Light Dater
When it comes to the dating game, you fall in the middle
You aren't going to ask out any cute guy that comes your way
That doesn't mean you're a total wall-flower though.
You'll smile and flirt - for Mr. Almost Perfect.

You're online dating style?
You're wired to spend time reading profiles carefully
Once you figure out what you want, you'll make a few connections

Hi everyone.  I haven't had a chance to write much this week, have been kinda busy.  I have worked the past couple of days and my sister and brother in law are visiting until next week.
I had a wonderful Christmas.  I won't bore you with the details of what I got.  The best gift I did get was the togetherness of having the ones I love close to me.  That is all that really matters to me . . . family and friends.  I hope and trust your Christmas's were wonderful.
I would be remiss to mention my uncle Phil's birthday is tomorrow.  He will be umm, maybe I ought not to tell.  LOL  I'm sure you can figure it out.  He is an old fogey!!  LOL  Just Kidding!  I love you and you know that Phil.  LOL   If you have the time pop on over and wish him a happy birthday tomorrow!  IT IS WHAT IT IS
Anyway, I think I will end this entry with a survey or two and by telling you all that I love you and cherish each and everyone of you.  Thanks to Emmi for the wonderful tag at the top of the page.  Have a wonderful Friday.  TTFN

You're outgoing, friendly, and charismatic.
You are aware of your image, and you are constantly improving yourself.
You're definitely the type of girl people love to be around!

Christmas Eve


Hi Everyone!  So far this has been a wonderful holiday weekend for me and my family.

We went to Heather's Mom and Dad's Christmas party on Saturday night.  Once again, like Thanksgiving, it was so wonderful.  Lots of people showed up.  The food was out of this world!  Shrimp cocktail, salad, ham, prime rib, the freshest fruit you can imagine and some wonderful desserts.  It amazes me that Heather doesn't weigh 1000 pounds growing up eating like this. LOL  They had a string quartet playing Christmas music and we even joined together singing some carols.  My sister and rest of the family really enjoyed themselves.
Here it is Christmas Eve.  Man has this year flown by fast.  It seems like it just turned 2007 and we are only a week away from another year.  Is it just me or is it the older you get the faster time seems to fly?
I want to wish all my friends here in J-land the most festive, the most fun filled, the most joyous and happy of Christmas seasons ever.  Remember the reason for the season, why we celebrate this holy day.  Have faith, stay strong, be positive, love one another, and don't allow any negativity to enter your souls today and tomorrow and beyond.
Luv ya lots.  Thanks for being so nice to me everyone, I really do appreciate it.  MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!  Luv Ya!

Big Sis is Here


Hi Everyone!  I'm so glad it is now the Christmas weekend.  I'm so excited.

Yesterday, me and Heather went out and we sure did our share of shopping.  I got all my gifts out of the way now.  It is so fun to shop with Heather.  We went to Nordstrom, her favorite store in the whole world.  I swear we spent two hours there alone.  She did a lot of shopping for herself as well as for Christmas.  Of course, being the sweet person she is, kept trying to buy me stuff.  I resisted, well, that is up until we went to Victoria's Secret.  I can't control myself in there.  I bought some cute camisoles and bras, and Heather insisted that I need this cute little laced nitey, and so I had to go home with that as well.
Then it was off to Macy's, JC Penny's, and a few other specialty stores in the mall.  Then we went out to dinner at Acapulco Mexican restaurant.  I love their chips and salsa.  I had the chicken fajitas and Heather did likewise.  Of course we had to wash it all down with a couple strawberry margaritas. 
This morning I went to the airport to pick up my sister Carrie and her husband.  They will be staying here for the next week or so, until January 3.  She looks pretty good for all she has been through and was in good spirits.  I sure have missed her and I know she has missed all of us.  Tonight we are all going to Heather's for her parents Christmas party.  That should be a real blast.
Thanks to Donna for the wonderful tag!  I hope you will all have a wonderful weekend.  Luv ya!  TTFN

Wet and Interesting

Hi Everyone!  How was your day?  Mine was good.  As I was explaining to someone, it was busy, interesting and wet!  Of course the man I was explaining this too immediately got the idea that the wet part was his cue to get flirty LOL.
It has been raining here in sunny Southern California today.  I love the rain.  I'd probably love where my sister is, but she is having a hard time getting used to the wet and cold Seattle winter.  And it isn't even officially winter yet.  LOL
Heather called me today all happy.  She finally completed the last of her exams and we are headed for the malls on Friday afternoon.  Watch out Nordstroms and Victoria's Secret!!!
I want to thank Emmi for the wonderful tags she has provided me for this entry.  She is so talented, go and visit her, the link is in my sidebar.
Now it is on to the number one sexy athlete on my list.  Yes, he is a quarterback and he plays for the New England Patriots, the hottest NFL team around.  Tom Brady, who has already won three superbowls in is career is making not only a bid for a fourth but also for MVP in the league this year.  He is so hot and yummy!  He is hot and he could take me with him to the Pro Bowl in Hawaii if he wants!  LOL
So here is today's survey.  Enjoy and have yourself a wonderful hump day!  Luv ya!  TTFN
In a Past Life...
You Were: A Diseased Alchemist.

Where You Lived: India.

How You Died: Buried alive.
Wow, that doesn't sound like such a good life or death!  No wonder I'm the way I am LOL!
You Are Big Black Boots!
You can be best described as: attitude
You've got lots of it - and you love to give it
A guy has to be pretty gusty to hit on you
But if he's your type, you'll warm up... a little
I wouldn't be caught dead in a pair of those!  But there is something to be said about having a little bit of attitude.  But I do like to think of myself as approachable and happy.  Guys that used to hit on me had to be prepared for the Ally personality, that's for sure!

Monday Monday

Hi Everyone.  I hope you all had a good Monday.  Can you believe that Christmas eve is one week away, and New Year's eve is two? 
It was a bit on the chilly side today with, it looks like, a little bit of rain headed our way.  We need the rain, but not too much in those burn areas because there will be flash flooding and mudslides if it is too heavy.
I see that Todd won Survivor last night.  I was hoping Amanda would but she didn't.  I am excited about a new season of Big Brother coming in February.  It usually starts in July but it is coming earlier this year.  I just hope it doesn't go head to head with American Idol which starts next month.  I can't wait for the 4th season of Lost to start next month either.
Ok, so now it is on to the #2 sexiest athlete in my top five.  He is my homeboy and graduated from the University of Southern California.  He won the Heisman Trophy a couple of years ago and now plays for the Arizona Cardinals of the NFL.  Matt Leinart has always done something for me.  He is tall and hot!  Don't you think so?
So to end this entry, of course, straight from the Survey Ho is a what you have been waiting all day for.  LOL  And thank you to Donna for the nice Tag atthe top!
Have a wonderful Tomorrow everyone!  Luv ya!  TTFN

Sunday Happenings and Fun

Happy Sunday to Everyone!  Thanks to Emmi for the nice tag!  It is just going to be a lazy day around here for me with nothing much to do.  Rene, of course is working.  It is a miracle that he actually had a day off on Friday.  Poor guy, he is getting really fatigued. 
So, have all of you finished up your Christmas shopping yet?  I have not.  I am waiting for my friend Heather to finish up with her exams, the last one being tomorrow, and then we can go out and do a "shop til we drop session at a mall or too!"  LOL  I just love shopping with her.
Well here we go.  Number 3 on my list of Sexiest male athletes.  This guy comes from the world of Nascar and he is my favorite driver.  He is so cute and his eyes are so pretty!  Kasey Kahne drives the #9 and will be in the Budweiser car next season.  He didn't have the best year in 2007 so hopefully his 2008 will be a banner one for him.
So as that I will not disappoint you, here of course is the obligatory survey or two for your consumption!
Your Adult Film Star Name Is...
Karen Kung-fu Grip

Lust: 80%

Last Night, Number Five, and Surveys

Hi Everyone!  Today is Saturday and I'm glad for it.  It was a kinda busy week at work but a rewarding one nonetheless.  I finally got the chance to spend some time with my honey last night.  We celebrated  his birthday, somewhat belatedly, by going to the Olive Garden for dinner.  I love that place, and it is Rene's favorite.  Funny, but Rene is of course Mexican but he'd rather go to an Italian food restaurant than a Mexican food restaurant.  We shared a bottle of Merlot wine and boy did it taste good.
Then we headed on off to the AMC theatres to catch a movie.  We say I Am Legend.  This was a very exciting movie.  I knew going in that it would be good based on all of the reviews I had heard.  I was not disappointed at all.  Will Smith ought to be nominated for an Oscar.  It will, by far, make the most money of any film this weekend.  There were so many people standing in line to see it.
Well, today, just time to relax.  Rene had to go in to work and Heather is still busy studying for one last exam she has on Monday.  I know she will be glad to get it done with then have three weeks off.  I will be glad too.  I miss seeing her, although I have talked to her most days.  Her family's Christmas party is next Saturday night, and if it is anything like the Thanksgiving one it ought to be full of wonderful food, yummy!  Can't wait to go.
Here is number 4 on my list of top five sexiest athletes. This one comes from the world of golf.  Tiger Woods is by far the best golfer in the history of the PGA and with that he is a very good looking man.  He is the kind of guy I would have never hesitated in going out with had I had the chance to meet him.  But alas, I am married, and so is he to a very beautiful woman and they have a child together now as well.  What do you think, a good choice to be included in my list?
Anyway, I guess it is time to end this entry now.  I, of course, will leave you a survey or too for your consumption.  Why mess up my reputation now right? LOL   Thank you too Emmi for the wonderful tag at the top of the entry.  Luv ya!  TTFN
Your Christmas Stocking Will Be Filled With Little Wrapped Presents
You've made Santa a very happy fellow this year.
Don't worry - what happens at the North Pole stays at the North Pole!
You Are 44% Girly
You're a little girly, a little boyish, and probably a whole lot indie.
You have your own unique style, and it pretty much defies gender lines.

Today, Top Five Male Athletes

Hi Everyone.  I hope you all had a wonderful Thursday.  Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday, I'm ready for the weekend.  I wanted to say first and foremost tonight, that I am happy to report that Rene loved his birthday present!  And so did I!  Hehehe
I thought tonight I'd start a series of Allison's top five sexiest male athletes.  I find these guy hunky and dreamy and if I wasn't married, oh boy, I'd love to play some games with them LOL.
Tonight, the fifth sexiest athlete is Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.  He is one of the hottest players in the NFL right now, not to mention that he is a hottie!  He dumped my girl Carrie Underwood and has been linked recently with Jessica Simpson.  Anyway, here are a couple of pictures of him.
What would an entry here be with a survey?  It would be a shock that's what it would be, so here is your survey of the day!  LOL
Your Christmas is Most Like: A Very Brady Christmas
For you, it's all about sharing times with family.
Even if you all get a bit cheesy at times.
Hope you will all enjoy your last work day of the week, except for Lisa, who has already completed her week's work.  Luv ya!  TTFN
