There’s No Pain Like Champagne

Happy New Year, motherfuckers!  Please excuse the expletive, I’ll have to tell you all about it later.  A few years ago, my New Year’s resolution was to take at least 24 hours to post anything I wrote in anger, and I’m proud to say that this is the only resolution I’ve ever bothered to keep.  So I’m furious with someone right now but I’m not saying it!  Huzzah, pass the champagne!
