i am contemplating not going out at all but that seems sorta too depressing to follow through on

staying home, because going out is always more depressing than it seems like it's gonna be.

prolly goin to karaoke at my friend's bar, people i know should be there. really kind of in my 'avoidant behavior' phase, which I go in and out of, but feel like a night of hooliganism

having people over for dinner, so we'll be drinking drinks, talking a lot. guests are single mom/daughter who are good friends w/my wife & son so I'm kinda the fifth wheel but I'll be busy in the kitchen, it's ALL GOOD.

Party at my friend's house. Cute girl I was going to flirt with is going to be sick, so I can get embarrassingly drunk without repercussions.

Making a pizza for my girlfriend my niece, my cousin, and watching whatever cartoon my niece chooses, then later after they fall asleep watching Walking dead with T. My first alcohol free new years eve, bought alcohol free champagne for T and me.

Either going to a rooftop party with fireworks watching in midtown or a non-rooftop party with no fireworks watching in Bushwick. The only reason I'm doing either is that it's a good excuse to get dressed up.

Virginia Plain, Saturday, 31 December 2011 22:46 (seven years ago) link

I may make a cameo at a party but driving twenty-seven miles on I-95 is not my idea of a frisson, and I saw most of these friends last night. I may go to my parents', which is much closer and there'll be plenty of booze.

Usually I stay home cos going out is depressing and I rarely have a girlfriend at this time of the year.

This year one of my bands had a show booked so I tried to have a good time. We were playing when the clock turned, and after we did the countdown the singer said something to the audience about everybody going outside to makeout, and instantly everybody ran outside with their hookups, and it happened so quickly it really caught me off guard. So instantly I was standing there in an empty room. Nothing like a hundred or so people instantly running away to make you feel better about being lonely on New Years.

Emperor Cos Dashit, Sunday, 1 January 2012 19:05 (seven years ago) link

baaaw but you got to play for a crowd, that counts for something surely.

Frobisher, Sunday, 1 January 2012 19:14 (seven years ago) link

we stayed home and watched some of new year's rockin' eve. no overpriced bars, no drama getting home. it was fine.

now i'm at a cafe with wifi cuz my internet's down at home. they're playing "i kissed a girl."

trudy campbell, Sunday, 1 January 2012 20:50 (seven years ago) link

Success! As I posted to the 'Sandbox 77' thread, I made turkey enchiladas for supper. We looked at all our photos from 2011, then we watched Swing Time with Astaire and Rogers, ate popcorn and drank some rum. We didn't get around to making a fire, but we did light a gigantic sparkler my wife acquired months ago on her birthday. We slept late today.

I hung out with my knitting friends on Saturday afternoon. We had a little adventure trying to find a restaurant that was open at 3:30. I ate nachos and a cheesesteak sandwich.

Today I am trying to finish my library books about David Bowie and Jane Fonda before they are due on Tuesday.

William (C), Sunday, 1 January 2012 21:39 (seven years ago) link

So my cousin called about an hour ago to say he would be coming for the waffles and games I'd promised my 18 no-show friends. My cousin said he'd also be bringing his step-sister. Oh, and his roommate. And his roommate's girlfriend, and his friend Ronny, and the girl that Ronny had brought home last night, who was wicked nice, but maybe still kinda deep in it, if I knew what he meant. And it wasn't really a problem, was it?, that he was rolling deep... six deep on the outskirts... unless they picked up my other step-cousin, and then they'd be rolling seven-deep... right? Was that cool? No, no... that they wouldn't be eating, on account of Ronny doesn't like gluten, makes him shit, and shit, but they had a lot of leftover booze to "kill and drill" at my house. Would I mind. I almost said no, I wouldn't mind. Because I wanted to see somebody today. Then I lied and said that maybe it would be kinda weird, on account of all the people I had over. And that was a lie.

So 2012 is off to a really super awesome start.

remy bean in exile, Sunday, 1 January 2012 21:41 (seven years ago) link

I was the first person past my threshhold this morning, as I went out to fetch the newspaper before breakfast. There was a time whenIi was a dark-haired man, before I became a balding, grizzled man. Will this altered state of dark-hairiness affect my luck?

My roommate just came home from France but he shaves his head, does that count?

is he flat-footed, and/or does he have eyebrows that meet in the middle? if not, then you're okay w/ the luck – but don't do laundry, and try to wear red underwear for a good booty season of '12

raved in the rain at the occupy lsx party on the steps of st paul's cathedral followed by a friend's houseparty for bang on midnight. texted the most beautiful girl in the world who i met on thursday night before leaving the party at a reasonable (3am) hour and kebabbing a walk home.

have spent today alternating between chugging out 1000 words of essay and being distracted from said essay by angst over the girl's failure to reply. great start to 2012.

N1ck, Sunday, 1 January 2012 22:11 (seven years ago) link

Haha! Posts about girl crushes always make me wish fondly that I were that girl to someone, but in real life I'm probably busier discouraging it. I guess I like to live variously through ilxors.

I was thinking something similar, although both of those acts you mentioned I didn't mind. I never had much HOOS for the Black Eyed Peas before, but they stood up well in comparison to some other stuff.
