Happy new year

Ah, yes, breathe it in. New years day. When you didn't sleep comfortably because you decided it would be a good idea to take a few double shots of vodka towards the end of the night since you are a champion. When you wake up and feel that your body is splitting cause the architect of the headache you now so happily own has slept uncomfortably with his head on an engineering book as thick as the bible...or was that the bible?

Welcome to 2010. I wish everyone who reads this blog daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly a Happy New Year. May all your hopes, dreams and wishes come true in this new and exciting start to the decade. I hope that everyone has better new years resolutions than I and will adhere to them. Unfortunately, statistically most have already broken their new years resolution promises...

Yeah, I'm talking to you, Mr. I quit smoking for the new year but you ripped 3 butts at 4;17am this morning after a long night of drinking and intense philosophical conversation about life, love and all in between. Yeah, I'm talking to you Ms. I will no longer have one night stands in the new decade, but will start after tonight's because new years is magical and I had too much champagne...



Moral: If you're going to drink make sure to have a few glasses of water before bed...

Keep dancin' and Happy New Year!

New years eve

Hello the last day of 2009. The last day of the first decade in the new millennium. Two more years and 2012 will be here. I'm kidding. Well sort of. But that discussion won't be read on this page for another 2 years, possibly. I'm just really excited for the new year. Of course the promising outlook for the beginning of the new year, and hopefully a prosperous decade helps also...

I've got the list here. The list of the new things that I will most likely not get done in the upcoming year. The resolutions list. What - don't read my blog like that. I know what you're thinking. What good is the new year's resolutions if you aren't going to fulfill them. I'm with you, for the most part. I believe the list is more of a guideline to help you become better, but not a demands list...

You can hold yourself to it, but if you don't fulfill the whole list are you going to be down on yourself at the end of the year in 2010? I like to set little goals throughout the year and see if I can get those done. The Laundry - check. Clean the car - check. Get my testicles laminated - maybe in 2010...



Moral: I've heard laminating your testis is very invigorating...

Gold toe slippers

I don't ask for much during Christmas, or my birthday, or really any other day. I enjoy my cups of coffee with friends during the few minutes a day when I leave work and all it's stresses behind. Basically, I'm going to save the long winded speech and simply say that I really appreciate the little things more so than the big things...

Reason behind that is actually simple. If I expect big things and don't get them, I'll be disappointed, whereas if I didn't expect anything, or expected something simple, I can't be disappointed. Kind of backwards, but at least I don't look, feel, or act like an ass when something doesn't go my way...

Fast forward, wait a minute, rewind back to Christmas day; I'm not expecting anything, I'm not growns up but I am growns up enough that I probably shouldn't be getting many gifts. Anyhow, the short and long of it is that I got these friggin sweet ass mint gold toe cloth slippers that makes me footsies feel all warm and comfy...



Moral: Being greasy requires complete comfort...

I have got to stop that

I've got this thing where on holidays, such as Christmas and other food related holidays, I challenge my cousin Dzl to an eating contest where there really is no winner. We both put forth our best effort which almost always gets trumped with both of us passing out after about the 3rd plate...

We attack the table the minute we walk into the house and decide who's plate is heavier based on a hand/hand balance where each of us holds the other's plate and agree on who's is heavier. Annnnd - we do this about 3 or 4 times. Mind you these aren't normal plates.

They are about 2 pounds in weight on average (and yes I am neglecting the value of the porcelain), and we literally continue to shovel the food down until one or both of us are down for the count. By the way, down for the count means that we're asleep - cause that's the only way we stop eating...



Moral: Postprandial somnolence - what a greasy term for food coma...

Schubert's Ave Maria...

Classic. One of the epic songs that was selected by the cinematic genius Martin Scorsese in his film Raging Bull, this song gives me goose bumps every time I hear it. The scene in which it can be heard is as epic as the song itself and so I tend to listen to the song whenever I sense some sort of change occurring with myself.

Actually that's only partially true - I listen to it every so often when I feel some sort of change has come about my being, or during the Christmas holiday season. I tend to have emotions overflowing during the Christmas season and really appreciate the way that this song makes me feel.

I'm sure it has something to do with it being a church prayer that is calling out for the intercession of Mary, the mother of Jesus, which gives me some feeling of salvation. Probably makes a bit more sense now as to why I enjoy it so much. It's also has something to do with it being so peaceful and enjoyable...



Moral: Sometimes it's nice to let yourself get carried away
