Blue Moon on New Years Eve 2009. Like when you refer to something *happening once in a Blue Moon* (as in almost never). The next one won't occur until 2028, at which time I might very likely not be alive (when taking my life choices into consideration). So, I'm saying it's time to go for it!
In spite of its name it's not really blue but refers to this partial eclipse happening so rarely. Two full moons within one month. People are so insane during full moons that I can't even wrap my mind around how crazy it will be on New Year's Eve. Take fair warning my friends! Honestly, staying home this year might be a really bright idea after all.
But I feel that a Blue Moon calls for a special celebration and if I have to celebrate alone, then so be it. That would be nothing new to me. I've been celebrating for years by myself. I always gather my little sparklers and not-really-fireworks as I head outside to set them off, all alone. I also squeal and run away with great glee after lighting them. Mr. Snoots goes to bed the same time as always... 8:30 PM -ish and he never hears a thing. Someone could molest me or the police could arrest me for setting off fireworks and he would never know until the next day.
However, this year has a celebration coming. A Blue Moon is just too cool to pass up! I might even have to crank up my chiminea which I haven't used in years. It's always been too warm outside. I might even go so far as to drive outside the city limits where the fireworks stands are. Oh, that would be daring of me.... to buy real fireworks. I refuse to let this landmark year go by without celebration. Be sure and hold your breath for all the exciting pictures to come.
