New Year’s Eve!

Happy New Year Everyone!

Now that that’s out of the way… I hate New Year’s Eve. Well, really I hate the pressure of making sure it’s an epically awesome night. I hate being forced to look back over the past year only to realize you have accomplished nothing and you are still the same dumb ass you were exactly one year ago. I hate year-end lists (except for my Food Network douchebag list which is awesome). I hate thinking “maybe this year will be the year it all happens for me” while secretly knowing it will probably be worse than the previous year. I like parties. I like getting drunk.

Whatever, 2008 was a steaming pile of horse shit, good riddance.

    NYE, like St. Patty’s Day, is fucking amateur hour. Nothing like a few bottles of vino and dinner with friends to ring in the new year…

    However, with that said: I hereby declare January 20th the new New Year…

    πŸ™ THis was a sucky post. New Year’s does suck, in fact I requested to work simply because the entire city is going to be overload with drunk fucktards and I’d like to be paid to laugh at them. None the less I’d like to look upon the next day, and the next day, and the next day of me’ life as an opportunity to make it better. Not save the world or I’m going to change my life and all my habits better.. just better. Funnier, less boring, newness on a decently regular basis. This past year was nothing special until I look closely and realize that while I may not have changed a bit, things have in fact happened this past year. Good things, happy things, shitty things, fun things- new people especially.

    Don’t make this day a huge deal- but don’t be all depressy about it either πŸ˜€ it’s just another day πŸ™‚

    I agree. Can it really be a fun time if your trying so hard all night to make sure it going to be a great night? There’s the pressure to make sure at zero hour that you’re doing something you want to be doing the rest of the year. Everybody wants to score at midnight and everybody is trying really hard to get that perfect level of drunkness at 12 o’clock. If you’re single you’re trying to get drunk enough to get your nerve put enough to ask that someone (that you just met at the party) to get laid so you can tell yourself the next day it was the alcohol. If you’re dating you want to make sure that this is the night that really sets the tone for the year to come and shows him or her that you’re fun and adventureous and sexy and….. . Last but not least, if you’re an old married fart like myself you just try to stay up long enough to have a glass of adult beverage of choice and kiss from the significant other so you can remember fondly the scenerios I mentioned previously and then it’s off to bed where you wanted to be two hours earlier. lol

    In short:

    Happy New Day Everyone!!

    Don’t get hit by drunk drivers!

  5. You Just Made My List!on 31 Dec 2008 at 10:04 am

    SanFran, Agreed. A simple night is usually best on New Years.

    Jason, Exactly!

    Yubbers, And don’t drive drunk everyone. Seriously.

  6. You Just Made My List!on 31 Dec 2008 at 3:32 pm

    Yubbers, and another thing… what do you mean this is a sucky post?!?

  7. Balzacon 31 Dec 2008 at 7:21 pm

    How about the fabled ‘Eve of New Years Eve’ party? Most of my friends and loved ones seemed to have exhausted themselves last night.

  8. Yubberson 01 Jan 2009 at 2:52 am

    Oh…… well …. awwww fucking shucks. It’s not a SUCKY post.. … just, well… a sucky one.

    What I was mostly referring to was that since you were bashing New Years Eve it gave me the thought that you wouldn’t be doing anything fun or you didn’t have anyone to kiss at midnight..? I get all “NEW YEARS SUCKS!!” when I don’t have plans and more specifically when there’s no body significant in the least to kiss at midnight. Almost like ‘what the hell is the point of staying up until midnight with all the drunk fuckers who are hopelessly hoping for a happy ending’.

    It was sucky cause I thought you may be stuck alone on New Years πŸ™ πŸ™

    Tis’ all. I adore your posts!!!

    “Whatever, 2008 was a steaming pile of horse shit, good riddance.”

    plus this made me Emo for you. I said it– E-MO.

  10. Creature of Habiton 01 Jan 2009 at 9:39 am

    I agree, NYE is sucky…. I like to roll out with the fam and a quiet night. HOWEVER – I seem to remember a very excellent New Year’s sleepover that has gone down in our friendship lore. You know the one! That was excellent. But, that was also the only NYE party I’ve been to.

    Last night we played cards until exactly 12:02 and then it was nighty-night. We know how to party.

  11. hodanon 01 Jan 2009 at 10:57 am

    forget NYE, it’s new year day that i hate. the hangovers, clean ups,angry neighbors and the regretful debaucheries!

  12. Yubberson 01 Jan 2009 at 11:50 pm

    Where did the “Creature of Habit” blog come from?

    And who’s friendship lore?

    I feel like I’m completely missing something…

  13. Jasonon 02 Jan 2009 at 7:15 am

    What is this f-ing “Creature of Habit” piece of crap! I’m with Yubbers. ‘Where the hell did this pile of dogshit come from?’ I went there and it was like a soft woolen website with pictures of sunflowers, all very nice but not what I’m into or what I want to see. I don’t care if your child’s first dress is a smashing success, or if you “stay” with that pattern. Maybe I’m a little chaffed because I’m at work and many other people had the good sense to call off today and I’m the new asshole that wasn’t smart enough to do the same thing or maybe I just really don’t care for what I saw when I went to creature of habit! Either way barf!

  14. You Just Made My Anus!on 02 Jan 2009 at 10:08 am

    Listy has been uncharacteristically emo lately.

  15. You Just Made My List!on 02 Jan 2009 at 10:59 am

    Jason, What the hell? Don’t be dissing my friend or I will shit in your shoes. We can all be angry and hate-filled about dumb shit but don’t misplace that rage. Her blog is beloved by thousands because it’s a great blog so settle down and get a new job.

    Anus, Fuck off! Is that emo enough for you?

  16. Jasonon 02 Jan 2009 at 12:03 pm

    Sorry if I offended you or your friend YJMML but I was only expressing my feelings about the site. I stand by my assessment of the content. If this wasn’t someone you know, would you still feel it’s a great site? Just because it’s ‘beloved by thousands’ doesn’t mean it’s a great site. I agree the site is laid out nicely but I’m not a fan of the content to say the least and when the link was put in place I felt that the door was opened for feedback on the site. Numerous people on your list are beloved by millions, I’m speaking specifically about the blog on the food network asses but that doesn’t make them great either. Any way I’d like to mend the hurt feelings and once again offer an appology to you and your friend if I’ve hurt her feelings also. In the future I will censor my response to the content of this blog particularly as it pertains to someone that is obviously a friend of yours. As for my job I couldn’t be any happier about what I do or where I do it but it IS still work and if they didn’t pay me I wouldn’t be doing it around these people. That’s sorta why they call it work.

  17. You Just Made My List!on 02 Jan 2009 at 12:22 pm

    Jason, Don’t ever think you need to censor your opinions here. You can hate whatever you want but I am obviously the kind of person who will shared my feelings in return.

    Yes, I genuinely think her site is very good blog. She’s incredibly talented and creative. Maybe you’re just not into the subject matter but I find it hard to seeing anything to hate on her blog.

    No need to apologize or mend any feelings. No hurt feelings. Always feel free to complain freely here.

  18. Yubberson 02 Jan 2009 at 1:28 pm

    You Just Made My Anus:

    “Uncharacteristically” was the best way to put it.

    YJMML:

    **Group Hug**
    Did you wind up getting stuck alone on New Years? I keep feeling Emo for you and it’s gotta stop somewhere. My bud at work asked if I wanted my usual hot cocoa and I declined. T’was sad. I can’t deny my hot cocoa again dude.

  19. You Just Made My List!on 02 Jan 2009 at 4:30 pm

    Yubbers, I attended a small but lovely gathering in Wicker Park on NYE. Thanks for asking. And you?

  20. ex-stripperon 02 Jan 2009 at 5:31 pm

    My boyfriend flew down to see me for a few days, and was sick the entire time (and even made me a little sick too) – we toasted in the New Year with cough medicine and then passed out – sad…

  21. Yubberson 02 Jan 2009 at 5:40 pm

    I’m glad you enjoyed yourself then πŸ™‚

    Actually- your “NEW YEAR SUCKS” sucky blog inspired me to make the best out of my midnight celebration. I was stuck working (hotel so at least I was within live music, decorations, ball drop, balloons everywhere kind of madness) at one of the finest hotels Chicago has to offer so the celebration itself was great- but the inspiration of this blog came through when me and my close chick friend at work toasted with Moonstruck chocolates at midnight instead of pining about kisses. Kisses everyone else in the crowd was having but us…. BUT like I said- Moonstruck chocolates. We laughed, we joked, we gave each other something to smile about. I refused to let this New Years Eve be sucky. Like this post **(kidding)**. ~Thanks~

  22. SanFranon 04 Jan 2009 at 12:23 am

    Ex-Stripper: You’re still with that republican ne’er-do-well boyfriend? I thought you had been properly schooled. Shame on thee, and now you’ve got a nasty lip fungus*

    *according to my calculations

  23. You Just Made My Chemical List!on 04 Jan 2009 at 1:40 am

    “”Anus, Fuck off! Is that emo enough for you?””

    That’s it Gerard. Let it all out πŸ™‚

  24. ex-stripperon 04 Jan 2009 at 6:21 pm

    Yes still with the ne’er-do-well boyfriend – love’s blind – and I have no kind of nasty fungi dear San. You would think I would have got something nasty by now – dealing with dirty dollar bills and all. But that is why I date the boring, good boys – even if they are republicans – cause I don’t like fungus or anyone who appears to have a collection of it. Seriously I got germ issues I would always shower after work at the old job and wash my hands after counting money the next morning – I think I may have mysophobia 

  25. well why wouldn't yaon 10 Jan 2009 at 6:15 pm

    Dude,
    You have a major hard-on for Fieri. Why???
    Please don’t give me the “Total Tool” and “Douchebag” line of predictable responses. Really…YJMML…why does the blood from your head rush to the head of your 2″ dick whenever his pic, name or the Food Network star is mentioned? Can anyone say “Mancrush”?
    You know…I guess it’s better to make people feel strongly one way or the other….just ask Howard Stern. He parlayed the emotions into 1/2 a Billion.

  26. You Just Made My List!on 10 Jan 2009 at 7:09 pm

    Well why wouldn’t ya – This approach to defending people is really my least favorite. It’s just so lazy to say I am obviously in love with a person because I say I hate them. So let me ask you, do hate anything or anyone? I’m guessing yes. For example, you probably hate me, is that because you actually hate me. If you love Guy Fieri, great, who cares what I think.

    One more thing, hating someone for being a douchebag tool is totally valid, it’s why I hate you (or do I secretly love you).

  27. You Just Made My List!on 10 Jan 2009 at 7:12 pm

    Well why wouldn’t you – Damn it, why were you just nice to me on the Food Network post? Now I look like a dick for saying I hate you.

    People, I need you to either love me or hate me, non of these in between crap!
