New Years' Eve

well, happy new year, all :)

we drank a bottle of wine last night. and some eggnog. i was pretty fucking trashed. we got this wine in australia. sparkling shiraz. i know. it's crazy! and so, so good. better than champagne! almost. depending on the champagne...


(pay no mind to the windex in the background... bubbly red wine. my favorite. and we will probably never have it again. *sigh*)

so i'm all trashed and steve mentions i should try out karaoke revolution 2. why the heck not. i'm drunk. i think i did okay. there are songs on there i've never fucking heard of in my life. i had to just try and hum along because i was too drunk to follow along and read at the same time. what a 'tard i am.

AND I HAVE GREAT NEWS! STEVE FINALLY SHAVED HIS BEARD LAST NIGHT! so i was rubbing all over his face all night. nice and smooooooth. ahhh, bliss.

we went to giant village. in downtown LA. they close off a few of the city blocks and people just party out on the street. we rang in the new year with 11,998 other people... it's just a big ol' outdoor party. they had this ferris wheel out there that was going really fast. it probably would've been fun to ride, had i not been so damned trashed. i probably would've puked on someone. hehe...

the line to get in was pretty long, but moved really fast. we were in by 10:45pm... which was perfect because we got in just in time to see the killers. finally. we missed them at bumbershoot in september and voodoo fest in october.

they are really good live. i hate it when i like an album, but then i see them live and i realize that they really suck ass and everything was tweaked. at any rate, we saw the killers, mark farina, paul oakenfold, crystal method, john digweed, jason bentley (briefly). it was a lot of fun. ran into a co-worker there. she's parties a lot. she's nice, but we just don't have much in common. so, we said our hellos... and then we ran along on our merry way...

everything was great except for the restrooms. they were SO fucking nasty. i just looked at it and walked out. i couldn't pee until we got home. i thought i was going to DIE. i seriously thought my bladder was going to burst and i was going to be ill or something.

it's such a great party they throw on every year, though... i have to say that i liked it better two years ago better. it wasn't so dirty... and paul van dyk was there. it's fun to be around all those kids rolling on e ... and when they bump into you, they rub your arm or your back and say, "oooh... sorry!!! no, really... i'm sooooo sorry.... ooh, happy new year! ooh. i like your shirt... okay, bye!" okay, it's funnier when it happens. not so funny written down.

saw 4 accidents on the way home. it's unfortunate. they really should get a designated driver. i have steve. and even when he's had a lot to drink, he could still walk that straight line. they'd just be shocked if they ran a breathalyzer on him. heh... hollow leg. i swear.

i'm pretty tired today. i may be getting too old for this... god, getting older sucks. i didn't even drive there or back. not only did i take a 3 hour nap yesterday during the day, i took a 10 minute nap after my shower and then again on the way up there. too much alcohol for me. wine fucks me up, bigtime. maybe next year, we'll just throw a party or something...

In the 20 minute drive that Tony and I did to go to some place in Cerritos, we saw 3 or 4 police cars. Two of them had people pulled over, the other 2 were trolling for people.

Glad you had a good time! :)

Sounds like a pretty good time Grace. You shouldn't have told us that the blue stuff was Windex. I would have just thought it was some cool blue liquor or something.

Happy New Year.

Funny - I had sparkling red wine for the first time just before Xmas, when I went on a winery tour in the Yarra Valley. Sorry, but I thought it was awful! But then I hate sparkling white wine/ champagne too, so I guess that's why...

i bet you mix the windex with the wine. some sort of freakish buzz happening over there... freak. *grin* that's why it's bubbly, right?

happy new year!

(and yay! about the lack of beard. i HATE facaial hair and when ever my shawn decides that he needs to try growing some i want to stab him with a knife! gah! he's such a non-hairy guy and he doesn't really grow a beard all that well.. and he'll leave it like that for monnths trying and trying.. i either have to attack him with the razor or stop talking to him. heh)

I went to giant one year...but I can't remember if it was fun. It probably was, or why else would I have gone? I remember the ferris wheel, but the line was way too long. I think PVD was there, but I could be mixing that up with another new years thing.. or maybe it was Sasha. Oh well. Glad you had fun! :)

jeanette: it's kind of a shame. if only the drunk people driving were only hurting themselves and not innocent other drivers and their passengers....

YB: damn it! i mean. it's not windex. it's... hpnotiq. yeah.

kurt: pay no mind to ian. it's fabulous.

ian: no bubbly for you???? more for me! we picked it up in the hunter valley. apparently, the crazy aussies make sparkling everything!

giest: HA! i won! :P (finally... sheesh.)

cat: steve's beard usually grows in pretty nicely. everyone fucking loves it! except for me. it's fine and all for everyone else to love it... he's not rubbing their little faces with it. sheesh. for the record, steve would probably be happy if i stopped talking to him. hehehe.

david: yeah. and stuff. why don't you work on that... and stuff. :P

jeremy: wow! you MUST've had a good time if you couldn't remember who was headlining! :P good to have you back! :)

I'm glad you had a great NYE Grace! Your wine looked yummy. My inlaws brought over Sparkling White Zifendel one night and I almost bitch slapped them. It was sick. But youre wine looked tasty. As did the Windex.
Oh wait, you don't drink Windex, right? :)
