we did the Daly version of biggmellon's new year celebration and luck and health and wealth rituals zaniness. no video or even photos (flickr is still being uncooperative with me anyhow) as i was even just extremely lucky to barely get any spousal participation and was not going to push my luck... he's much too serious sometimes and this was my main motivation for approaching the new year this way...
so we did wear get the yellow undies on about forty minutes before midnight which were a last minute purchase (neither of us own yellow) boxers with essentially a beer mugs print, but there were also green beers and pink beers on it too so who knows what was supposed to be in the beer mugs really... and so the question in my mind remains, could the pink beers pass for also wearing undies with "red" on them? pink is a red relative for sure, no? (he was going to go for broke racey and wear them on the outside of his pants ala Dawn and Michael but B vetoed that)
we took our first steps with our right feet---Bronagh was with us too, for the first time since maybe middle school she just wanted to be home and that was really sweet
we all jumped off an old fischerprice kids plastic chair into the new year---we took it with us to the park to watch the fireworks and did that there
we threw silver coins over our shoulders... B wanted to know if we were going to go try to find them later
we each ate a baggie of 12 blueberries subbed in for grapes because thats what was in the fridge and really there is that whole thing about any round fruit so thats probably ok
we shared a round old fashioned glazed donut for even more roundness---heh heh
we threw gluten-free bread at our front door and also a bag of chocolate covered pomegranate seeds which were subbed in for a whole actual pomegranate because again, thats what we had in the cupboard... i am sure that subbing was fine, but i am not sure it was ok and still counted that the gluten free bread was going a little stale. Also there was a debate on which side of the front door we needed to throw them at so the pomegranate hit the outside of the door and the bread the inside. whatever.
we threw a blue sandbox bucket full of water out the back window
we toasted in plastic stemmed glasses with a piece of jewelry in just mine because the husband doesn't wear jewelry and the daughter wouldn't put jewelry in hers so i did it for all of us, once before midnight and once at midnight-ish
there were kisses all around
i think thats everything we did...
we skipped the suitcase and scarecrow and broken dishes and some other things... but already i am very optimistic about 2014...
we've even made a decision on a breeder, requested a particular future litter (fingers crossed) and sent out queries for (hopefully) some nice character reference letters...

thanks for all the support and inspiration Dawn!!! next year we'll try for video or photos
below is supposed to be a photo of Stella wearing her dahling! 2014 glasses who at midnight was in her pop-up crate with a peanut butter kong in the living room next to a rather loud tv so she wouldn't hear the fireworks which has seemed to work for her because every year so far she comes out all wigglewaggy tailed when we come home

Excellent written description (since LJ is being a butt to you).

My hope for you in the new year is easier access to LJ!!!

And much peace and happiness. It's been a hard one for you.

thank you for your wishes!!!
i think it is probably flickr that is the butted because they are going through changes and i read some other complaints of people not being able to put flickr photos into their blogs as they are revamping the site... but it could be either

Much love to you and wishes of a very happy 2014! I don't need a video, I can envision it in my head and it is lovely! Way to embrace making your own luck and actively going after it!

a winning year or banking on luck or getting jiggly with it?
I am not sure what it all adds up to but to me it all totally makes more sense and has so much more value than say---buying a lottery ticket when the pot is huge?

Your pictures did show up so I'm glad you got that sorted out. I was just wondering if you amd B had visited those other pups. Sounds like you might be going a different direction?

actually the pictures still seem to come and go... and there is still something wrong with the embed writing... but glad to hear YOU can see the pictures... I persisted and kept trying different stuff and I'll see if I can remember what I did this time for next time... ha ha hmmm

we never got to see those pups, life happened, mainly moving truck moving my brothers stuff trying to make a deadline... we did meet one of the pups from another litter roughly th same age that someone brought to the trial over the weekend---so very cute! but we also have been doing a lot more research and yes, going another way
