What a year for a new year

I've been shoveling snow all afternoon and holy moley -- it is tough. Gratifying and good hard work, but I have an oozing blister on my thumb and I think my arms and legs may actually fall off. We're going out for (several) margaritas after my hours of no-joking slave labor, then over to some friends' house to ring in 2007.

Last year I posted up a New Year's mix, and I was listening to it while assembling some Trader Joe's brownies (imported in the luggage from California, since Colorado is TJs-forsaken) for the fiesta this evening. One of my favorite songs from that mix is "Up All Night," which seemed appropriate to belt this afternoon, perhaps because of the victorious refrain "When the roads are clear, we'll head on outta here," a nod to my savage clearing of the 3 foot drifts in the driveway. Plus, you know, there's the 'up all night' business:

Up All Night - Counting Crows

And a few others for your end-of-the-year enjoyment:

Next Year, Baby - Jamie Cullum

This Could Be My Moment - The Verve

Start Again - Teenage Fanclub
