Celebrate any way you can
This is not a "Travel Blog" but more like a "Custom's Blog", so don't go looking for your next vacation hot spot in these lines...but if you're not doing anything and it hasn't already passed for you, you might consider stepping outside.
I began typing to Eva and that got the gears going about the whole New Year's Celebrations. If you ask me, it's a bunch of wierdo traditions all clumped together because they don't really fit anywhere else. For instance, the kissing of complete strangers just because you're starting afresh? Really? Do they really think I want to start the year with some cold or flu or the hantavirus? (apparently I only kiss random people in barns where mice dwell.
Get a new occupation
..) 'Cause I'm pretty sure all of our immunities are a bit low with the lack of sleep, chill in the air and our bodies working overtime just to keep us upright by that point in the night at the height of flu season...naaah ugh! No thank you!
Alright, maybe that came off a bit prudish...what about the resolutions? Meant to be carried throughout the year and make us better people right? Why can't I resolve to do more of the things I love and enjoy like being a better beer drinker? Can't I commit to being a more well rounded person instead of trying to slim down in some way? Or what if we resolve to play with the dog more, become better liars or convince the populace that biting your nails IS the latest in fashion trends and we should all jump on that wagon??? I just hate thinking that I have to make that resolution I abhor just because committing to not drinking pop when I don't drink pop in the first place makes me lame 'cause I'm "not taking this seriously". I'm pretty sure this was supposed to be a party with drinks and everything so maybe the serious resolvers should go play outside. eh, resolve what you will but I'm making this the Year of the Lack of Resolution!
