George and I are off to the villa in Lake Como to ring in the New Year. We'll think of you dutifully drafting your resolutions as we sip bellinis under the moody Italian sky and go cliff-diving into the Med.
(Come now, don't be jealous. We'll invite you over next year if you're good. And by "good," I mean "bribe us shamelessly").
So here's to 2006! See you next year.
