It's one of my favorite times of year...New Year's!! What better excuse to party until you black out than New Year's? I've had many a good time & many a bad. Some were spent in jail (wouldn't recommend it, I actually heard the fireworks from my jail cell. Heartbreaking.) Some were spent in hot tubs with too many people to be hygienic (no, no dirty business was going on). I love New Year's.
Last year was fairly tame, we drank, went to some bars, met up with friends I haven't seen since high school & played drunken Wii Sports until 4 in the morning. Twas a good time!
I have found some pictures from what I think is 2002...or 2003 New Year's. I honestly can't remember. Nothing in this story is interesting...except for JIMBO.
He was...uh...really really crazy. Like, for real. But he was harmless & entertaining so he hung out. All of this took place at my buddy Alexis's house. She lived in the ghetto. I always hated going to her house because I was afraid I may get shot...the place was shady as hell. Anyway, I love Alexis so I put my life on the line to hang out with her, basically. ANWAY. Jimbo lived next door & in his back yard there was a shed that had: a table, a bed, and a karaoke machine. He would have karaoke night by himself & we'd hear him singing Parliament songs & such. He was fucking crazy, did I already mention that?
He also had a "star" hat that he made himself. It's what that thing is on top of his head. You would put the hat on, put your hands on your hips, put your feet out, & like magic, you would be a STAR! You were in perfect star formation, my friends! He wore that hat a LOT. That weird stick next to him? Yeah, he made that too, & called it a blunt stick. There was actually a place where you'd put your "cigar" & puff puff on the other end. Blunt stick. Makes perfect sense to me.
He spent this New Year's with us & it was awesome.
This is Will & my friend Joni with Jimbo.
Me & some dude I don't even fucking remember...I still can't believe I was drinking such disgusting beer...oh well, I wasn't even close to being old enough to drink so I didn't care.
Joni & the Star
Me & Joni. HAHA! It looks like we're on some serious drugs here, with us both staring off into space but I can assure you we weren't. Drunk, yes. A little baked? Probably.
I'm really looking forward to this year's big party. We have no plans right now, but I'm sure it'll be fun! I also have no resolutions yet. Last year we quit smoking, which was huge & I'm so glad we did it. I really don't know what to do for this year. So far it seems I'm resolving to quit my shitty job & get the hell out of school but those aren't the classic "bettering yourself" resolutions now, are they?
I love starting off with a clean slate though. The whole year is stretched out in front of you & the world is your oyster. You can really start fresh & leave the old year behind you.
So what are your plans for New Year's? What are your resolutions? I'd love to hear em! (plus I need some suggestions:)
