January First


Insert horn blowing here.

2007, huh? Wow. Well okay, let's do this.

Hi, 2007. I'm Lisa. Nice to meet you. You seem pretty cool. So... Any big plans for you? I'm sure you're just trying to take it all in right now. Well, you've got 365 days to get a bunch of stuff done and have a lot of adventures. Make that 364. You've already wasted a whole day recovering from the last day of 2006. Not to worry, though! That's what you're SUPPOSED to do on the first day of yourself.

Well, I just thought I'd come over and introduce myself. I'm looking forward to spending a lot of time with you and accomplishing a lot during your stint here. Do me a favor and try to be nice. I mean, just try to go easy on us. We're really going to do everything in our power to make you feel welcome. I really want you to feel like I'm not taking you for granted at all. I think every day you have to offer is precious and I'm going to try to treat you that way.

I'm looking forward to learning a lot. I want to waste as little of you as possible. I want your days to be filled with laughter and hard work and I want to create a lot of good memories with the people I love.

Look at me, I'm talking your ear off. I'm sorry! I know you have a lot of other people to meet. So... Welcome. I'm very excited to see what you have to offer. No pressure, though. Just make yourself at home. It's really nice to meet you.


Oh... Lisa. Lisa Arch. No problem! I'm horrible with names, too. 2007, right? Just kidding. I know your name. I was just trying to make you feel less awkward.

Nice to meet you, too.
