There is no real explanation for this post, just my list of lessons learned from my debauchery on New Year’s Eve 2009!
- Catching a cab on New Year’s Eve is not as hard as everyone thinks. This rings true for both 9:30 PM and 3:30 AM
- A book can be an awesome sculpture if someone takes the time to crinkle all the pages.
- A book-made-sculpture makes a horrible volleyball. The bruise on my forearm agrees with me.
- No one likes Lady Gaga quite as much as I do.
- Trader Joe is my secret lover, but his pizza with sneaky blue cheese is my enemy.
- If partying at Donna’s apartment; make all plans with people before hand. AT&T gets no service in the concrete pit. Texts were sent to 12 different people and it even took a facebook email to get someone in the house. Sorry Lauren & Micah!
- Fireworks coming off the space needle is cool. Even if you stand in the freezing rain and have to peer through clouds to see it.
- Drinking a Champagne toast out of a huge wine glass is necessary.
- Kisses at midnight should not be a chore and should last longer.
- Burning a perfectly good book sculpture at 12:05 AM should be a new tradition.
- Someone got way too excited about burning said book sculpture.
- When the sign says “spicy chicken”, they mean the chicken is going to be spicy!
- I was not scared of being hit by a car while running across the street in the rain at 3am, I was merely concerned for the safety of my tacos. In case you are wondering, they arrived home safely.
- Apples to Apples is quite possibly the greatest manufactured drunk game ever. And yes, canadians are smelly.
- A bra makes a perfect card holder so hands can be used for drinking between your turn.
- McDonald’s does not deliver, however they will answer the phone at 4 AM and laugh at you explaining that the taco you ate was really spicy and that you just need one double cheeseburger and are willing to pay mileage.
- The night is only successful if you go to bed after the morning news has started.
Happy New Year!
