New Year

So, how did you welcome in the New Year?

I got back in to Fresno yesterday. Finished the trip that I'd started the day before. Delays, mechanical failures, and the airlines being kind enough to "accommodate" me by flying me into LAX to catch a different flight here... and not taking into account that the other flight took off while I would be deplaning. Anyway, I'm back. Safe, sound, and sane.

Alright, safe.

'Twas great being able to head home, hang with family and friends, and to renew my war upon my liver. We (my liver and I) are not in negotiations, right now...

2007 made its brief appearance on the road of life, and is now officially roadkill, its mantle fluttering to the tarmac. Tiny little Elisha Oh-eight has boldly stepped out and picked it up... poor, unfortunate bastard. Won't be long, and he will be smucked as well...

As for celebrating Mr. 007's demise, I can only say that I didn't. I couldn't.

I had planned on watching The Shining (one of my favorite movies over the holidays), but I couldn't keep my eyes open. 'Course, that may have had something to do with the large supper I had made for myself. And the beers and bottle of wine that I "disposed" of, while cleaning out the fridge. Or maybe even the travel. Yeah... travel. That's probably it...

I'm pretty sure that the New Year came in with a roar, despite my lack of celebrations. As a matter of fact, I'd slap down some serious money on that, as my own personal snoring awoke me at 12:03...

New year, new goals, new hopes. But no resolutions from me. And, "No," I did not resolve that..

"Happy New Year," to all of you. May your goals be reached, and hopes realized.

Oh, and for those of you with a mile long list of resolutions, and no resolve, here's some (not safe for crumb gobblers' ears) encouragement! Kinda...

Psychostick? To start off the new year?

When will I ever learn: Do not link to T1G's music. Ow!

Oh, man. I drank an entire bottle of wine too. Took me five hours to do it, but I managed to put it all somewhere. Damn, it wasn't even GOOD wine :p

P.S. PSYCHOSTICK!! Oh hells yeah. I should have gone to see them while they were in town. Shoot, I should have seen them while I still lived in Tempe.

GAAAK! My fucking ears are bleeding from that audio!

How do you listen to that shit?

Welcome back, dude!

Glad you had a safe journey.
Yes, New Year was celebrated in time honoured fashion, drink till midnight, then drink till dawn or whatever time you can't hold a glass!!
Happy New Year

Happy New Year! Your airplane mishaps sound similar to mine when I was trying to get back home from Tennessee.

I think if having the runs could be set to music, it would sound kind of like that song.

Happy New Year!! Your travel mishaps sound an awful lot like mine last October, getting stuck in Charlotte overnight, on my way home from Tennessee/Atlanta.

By the way, if having the runs could be set to music, I think that's kind of what it would probably sound like.

Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but after last night, I can't listen to anything heavier than the opening theme song to the Honeymooners every half hour.

Oh, dang......I like the second comment I left better than the first one, but Fluffy was being an ass so I thought I lost it and had to rewrite it.

Happy New Year to you! I wish I could've been in Chicago when you were out that way. Sounds like you had an excellent time though. Yay!

We drank Champagne and watched old movies. Best way to bring in the new year. We didn't even realize it was after midnight... No noise in our neck of the woods. *grin*

Sounds like you had a great week of holiday-ness.

New Year's??... ohhh, you mean the other night with all those freakin' fireworks. Yeah.

Wishing you all the good stuff in 2008.
Happy New Year!
