And now, going backwards in time...

...I'll describe our New Year's Eve.

We slept a little early so we could be up at 11:00 p.m. to watch the Times Square device descend. We were dumbfounded to see that CNN, of all places, was running an extended New Year's Eve show from Times Square, so we decided to watch it.

We did, for a little bit. In a profoundly stupid move, CNN paired Anderson Cooper with Kathy Griffin, a tenth-rate comedienne best known for her gratuitously foul-mouthed alleged humor. It was painful to watch, but we weren't around for the bit where she berated a bystander when the mikes weren't supposed to be live, or for her going on about getting a pap smear test from CNN's medical reporter.

I'd ask CNN, as Dr. Phil is wont to say, "What were you thinking?", but there's an unjustifiable assumption in that question.
