Donut (cream-filled). Photo taken in Abu Dhabi, June 2009.

Are you awake yet?  Recovered from your New Year’s celebrations and ready to start your resolution diet?  Not so fast!  I have one last bright, sugary, possibly radioactive delight left for you!

Seriously, this is one blindingly yellow donut, and I agree, it doesn’t look exactly appetizing.  But to be honest, it wasn’t really half bad, and best of all, it’s smiling!  I may be a vegetarian, but clearly I don’t take the “no food with a face” rule too literally, or else I’d never get to enjoy these wonderful, weird little concoctions.

Now you can begin your diet.  😉

Fireworks, at Chicago's Navy Pier. Photo taken July 2009.

Okay, this isn’t actually from a New Year’s party–it’s part of Chicago’s long-running summer fireworks shows from last year.  But fireworks are fireworks, and this one exploded as a smiley face!  How cool is that?

Here’s hoping your 2010 was happy, your New Year’s Eve celebrations are (responsibly!) fun, and your 2011 starts out with smiles and laughter.

Have a good one, everyone!
