1. A proposed course of action or sequence of events.
I guess there's a reason we usually refer to our plans for the evening instead of something more concrete like agenda or schedule.
We do this because while we may know what we'd like or expect to do, we really don't know what's actually going to happen.
Last night, as I'd planned, I went to the home of the FirstCouple for their annual New Year's party.
I'm not really sure why I chose that venue instead of the party a friend of my sister was having. I just sort of decided sometime during the day which one I'd attend.
I drank most of a bottle of Delirium Noel while I mingled with the two dozen or so people in attendance. It was a nice time, but I still don't feel like I really know any of those people, so I didn't feel too bad when I left at around 10:00.
The second half of the night didn't exactly go as I'd planned, but I was pleasantly surprised and I enjoyed myself. It turned out to be exactly what I needed to close out 2004 and say hello to 2005.
Now I get to see what the aftermath is. The nice thing is that I'm invincible, at least for a while.
