Use Me and Abuse Me Day – Dancing into the New Year

Hey everybody! It’s another Use Me and Abuse Me Day.


Is this your first UMAMD? You are welcome to leave ONE LINK or URL from one of your blog posts, photos, video, anything really, in my comment section. (Paste two and you’ll end up in my spam filter. It’s always so embarrassing for me and my guest.)

That’s when the party starts. Say hello to others who stop by. Check out the new faces in my comment section. Click on a few links and tell them, “Susie sent me!” They should click back to your place. Now you know the drill! These parties always last for days and easily a full week, so you can keep stopping back.

DJ KSmash is in the house and spinning. Help yourself to the bar. If you prefer, the barista will make any coffee drink you can imagine. I’ve flown in delicacies from the finest restaurants in New York City.

I hope you have fun meeting my friends!

Now click on the video and dance with me!

    1. Thanks Patricia! I have to say that I still have a ways to go in building up my stamina. It won’t be long and I’ll be able to dance for hours!
      Happy New Year to you!
      Loved this video! What a kid!!!! He is smarter than most adults and he has the right idea with dancing!


  1. Susie, you have such a zest for life that I can’t help but smile every time I think of you. I LOVED your dancing video. You are definitely the epitome of a “live out loud” woman and I think it’s amazing!

    As I considered what to share on the first, I decided not to go serious or somber. We’re kicking off a new year and need to do so with humor and an eye for the awkwardly ridiculous…so I decided to revisit my post on the inappropriate moments/crossed boundaries encountered when working with the public. 😉


    1. This is hilarious! I thought I had some crazy experiences in retail, but nothing like yours. Wow! 🙂
      Thanks for bringing it to the party! Have fun Kit and don’t forget to hit the dance floor!


    1. I was in action alright! Hahaha!
      Great story Ted! It is amazing how much emotion you could pack in so few words. Nice!
      Thanks for stopping by with a link. Hope you enjoy meeting the guests! There are some new faces in the crowd.
      Happy New Year!


    1. Love this! I wrote about why time passes slowly or more quickly given the situation, but you covered it in a more philosophical sense!
      Thanks for bringing it to the party! Have fun and don’t forget to dance!


  2. Happy new year Susie! Looks like it has been great so far.
    I have never participated in a UMAAD and love your blog. You are an inspiration and I love you writing style. I cannot wait to read all the posts that have been offered here! I decided that the first part of my 2013 recap would be a good start for anyone interested in reading Monday Montage: Memories of 2013 | And Three To Go
    Thank you for doing this and Happy New year!


    1. Congratulations! That is a huge work award and timely with the bad weather predicted to come into your state.
      Hope you have fun meeting the guests! There are a lot of new faces in the crowd and just keep on coming!


    1. Thanks for stopping by the party Beth! I love your golf conversation. Hilarious!
      Thanks for bringing a link to the party! Click on a few and introduce yourself! Tell them, “Susie sent me,” and they should click back!
      Don’t forget to dance!
