Happy New Year

I'm not sure if I mentioned this here or not but I decided to stay in Paris over the Christmas holiday this year and celebrate with friends. While it was tough being away from my family for the first time and missing out on a Christmas to be told for many generations to come thanks to the generosity of my grandfather I'm at peace with my decision. It was all made just a little bit easier thanks to the internet, free international calling and the wonders of Skype.

I haven't been working either for the past couple of days and I've really just been enjoying the time off, hanging out with friends, meeting new ones and doing all sorts of things that I dare not write about in this here blog. Actually the past week or so has been filled with such mundane tasks as going to my local Social Security office, the bank, dry cleaners etc I'd rather not bore you with the details.

2008 has been a really amazing year for me and I feel truly blessed for all my good fortune, m wonderful family and the great friends that I've made. To close out the year I will once again be dining with friends and drinking copious amounts of champagne. I'm really looking forward to what 2009 has to bring and hopefully a much sought after Carte Vitale is in my future as well.

Happy New Year Everyone!
