happy new year!

i'm seriously wishing i had done the polar bearing this morning...argh. next year.

instead of new years resolutions, which i haven't really figured out yet, i'm going to leave you with a few words from rabbie burns (you know i've got a soft spot for scots...this makes me wish i was celebrating hogmany...)

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne?

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak a cup of kindness yet,
For auld lang syne!

And surely ye'll be your pint-stowp,
And surely I'll be mine,
And we'll tak a cup o kindness yet,
For auld lang syne!

We twa hae run about the braes,
And pou'd the gowans fine,
But we've wander'd monie a weary fit,
Sin auld lang syne.

We twa hae paidl'd in the burn
Frae morning sun till dine,
But seas between us braid hae roar'd
Sin auld lang syne.

And there's a hand my trusty fiere,
And gie's a hand o thine,
And we'll tak a right guid-willie waught,
For auld lang syne

auld lang syne - times gone by
braes - hills
braid - broad
burn - stream
fiere - friend
gowans - daisies
guid-willie waught - goodwill drink
pint-stowp - pint tankard
