    I will probably be in bed around 9, wake up at 11:50, yell "happy new year" 10 minutes later, then head back to bed. Having 2 little kids will do that to ya. Keeping it mellow this year, imbibing isn't on my to do list anymore. Really sucks how much alcohol affects my lung issues these days, one drink and I wake up feeling junkie down there.

    Actually, I wish I could be in bed by 9, but we are being dragged down to the sis in laws new house down in San Clemente for the night. Will fight temptation to drive home at 12:05, but damn I want to sleep in my own bed so i can walk to the couch in the morning and plop down for a day of football.

    It's cool to celebrate. Unfortunately, in my case I've have gone all out in the past and got too wasted. This year I am hitting up a casino and do some lite drinking. Happy New Years bitches! Seeya in April!!!!

    In case you were wondering why the New Year starts when it does..

    this was the date of the Feast of the Circumcision, being the eighth day counting from December 25 when Christ was believed to be born. This day was christened as the beginning of the New Year by Pope Gregory as he designed the Liturgical Calendar.
    Some churches celebrate the Feast of the Circumcision of Christ on January 1, based on the belief that if Jesus was born on December 25, then according to Jewish tradition, his circumcision would have taken place on the eighth day of his life (January 1). The Catholic Church now calls this holy day of obligation the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God.

    Did anyone actually believe that the birth of Jesus was on December 25?

    And, really, if we want to look at it being close to Christmas than we should really look at why we celebrate Christmas on December 25th and that is mainly because that is when many Europeans were already celebrating various winter solstice festivals, from which many of the traditions of Christmas are derived.

    And since that's the case we might as well go back to Roman times when they started celebrating the change of the new year on January 1 (once January was a month) as that was, effectively, for much the same reasons that Pope Gregory went with that date and most of the Western world eventually followed suit.

    This is one of my favorite business days of the year. Amatuer night. The one night of the year that the average Joe or Judy lets themselves get disgustingly wasted and attempt to drive home after "only having a few". When these amatuer drunk drivers enter the already congested lanes of bargoers, trauma and hilarity ensue. That and alcohol mixes all too well with explosives from Mexico. Happy fuckin new year to ya, I'm making chella money.

    I work till 11. Going to attempt to get to bed right at midnight and get up early and welcome the new year in with a nice bike ride.

    It's an old tradition of mine that I have neglected to follow for way too long now.

    1. of course not. not even back then. they decided they had to pick a date so they did.

    2. see #1. putting christmas near the solstice made the transformation from paganism to christianity easier.

    3. I like the foreskin story better, myself.

    Most of our city's 113 bars/pubs (population 27,000) are open all night tonight and all the way through the 2pm bar close tomorrow. Superior turns into a giant shit show every NYE cause everyone takes complete advantage of the times of open

    After all the setting up of my home entertainment system, and committing to social engagements constantly this past month. I'd rather stay home and smoke pot than go out tonight. Don't really feel like trying to find the "ultimate party" in LA.

    So, if I start drinking now, there's a chance I could save Pete and I some gas money by taking a cab to see Fedde Le Grand in San Diego... Cool.

    I'm actually still trying to figure out what to wear tonight... Would snakeskin be the same as foreskin? If so, I have the perfect ensemble for tonight's festivities.
    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    I should have bought some whip cream or something, then maybe the jello shots wouldn't have tasted so strong. I still have a tray of them in my fridge, along 5 cases of beer. Too bad I don't drink at home.
