Jean-Georges, if you are reading this-how about closing on a holiday? Just one?
Ha! I can't even type that with a straight face because so much revenue get pulled in on holidays. I just want my man around for Christmas and or New Years. This year will be no different though-ringing in 2008 while sleeping on the sofa waiting for my man. But I'm tough-I can handle it. Thank goodness for family! Then again, maybe I'll come back from Ohio early to pop into Perry St. at midnight to capture a glimpse of my chef while he's at work.
I do have to share two PERFECT gifts for anyone.
A personal calendar from CreatePhotoCalendars. They did a fantastic job with my annual calendar I give to my parents. I know that nearly every photo printer (shutterfly, walmart, Kodak) provide calendars you can make-but this one is the best with up to 9 pictures on a month and tons of borders to choose from.
While I'm giving away free plugs-my father's music makes a great gift as well.
Not that I'm boasting or anything but he's been on Johnny Carson twice, nominated for a couple Grammys, and played for 3 US presidents. Us Records has the best soothing piano music and instrumental cds to add that special touch to your holiday party. Man, I should be a door to door saleswoman.
Well its 7:30 on a Friday night and I think I'm going to play me some Nintendo Wii before falling asleep on the beloved sofa.
I've never really been a fan of new year's to begin with. But when you start dating a chef, and your would-be first new years together is spent with 6 other couples while your man works...let's just say my enthusiasm over new year’s plummeted.
As I sat miserably sipping champagne last year the girl across the table says “don’t be upset, new year’s is not that big of a deal anyway.” Oh really? Easy for you to say considering your sitting next to your husband! Really though…I’m not bitter :) This year, well, who knows. I was told he would be able to get out around 11 or 11:30. Although it would be amazing, I’m not holding my breath. So if I am alone at midnight this year, I'll be thinking of all the other chef wives out there who share my pain.
Hey snack dater-is your man "snax" on PX THIS? Just curious. Maybe its a popular name...my chef was called "snacks" in his early JG days as a line cook.
I know I won't see my man on New Years so I'm going to try and work-if you can't beat them, join them!
I certainly would ring in the new year at his restaurant's bar so at least we are under the same roof!
Last year was the first time in our 6-year relationship that we spent new year's together, and we had a big party at our apartment. Every other year, we've both had to work, so that wasn't so bad knowing we couldn't have been together anyway. It's true though, I hate new year's, it's always so anticlimactic.
I'm spending New Year's without my man--he has to work at a party, of course. My girlfriend, who is also dating someone in catering, and I are going out to dinner at her friend's restaurant.
