New Year? Happy?

The New year rang in on sunday night and somehow my head came between the mallet and the bell.

It all started out peacfully enough, getting together with friends for sushi, lobster and many drinks.

Somewhere along the way we emptied more that a few bottles of red wine, some white wine, beers, rum and of course Goldslager at midnight.

I don't remember much after 1 o'clock, I might have gotten naked with the ladies or I may not have. I verdict is still out. I do know I sent out more than one garbled email to friends telling them how drunk I was...

So, this leads into an absolutley excellent Monday holiday, one in which i didn't leave the house and didn't leave my PJ's. So great to have one of those days every so often. I even got caught up watching Hogan Knows Best. They had a marathon on tv. Pamer's Wife hates it...so what, I was in the bedroom cuddled up with the dogs, who needs her?

Actually at the end of the night I told her "Thank you for letting me be a slob today".

On to resolutions...

MJ the ever-loving Infomaniac said it best the other day, it was something to the effect of "screw resolutions, Embrace your Vices". I really love that mantra and I think i'll do just that this year.

Everyone seems to try to make a resolution and how many actually succeed in keeping them? I'm going to go out on a limb and say the failure rate is 92%. I like 92.

So... instead of failure, we should all just plan to succeed by maybe drinking more (think of the poor wine makers who need your $12.65) or gamble more (in Canada, gambling proceeds got to charities and better infrastructure...LOL). It's win/win all around people.

Wouldn't it be nicer in December 2007 to say you set a goal in January and met it?

Now, I don't mean go out and bet the family farm on 21 black at the roulette table. Just maybe buy and extra raffle ticket from the church down the street or enter that Cancer Society sweepstakes. It's all for a good cause right?

And Drinking? Don't start bringing your pillow to the gutter everynight, have an extra beer with your old granddad or Aunt Bethany. They'll surely appreciate the time you spent with them.

See how nice things could be.

Hookers, drugs and porn....well....those are up to you to try and justify. I'm not EVEN going to touch them.

The Morales to this story:
-watch Hogan Knows Best (there are morales in the show)
-drink more to save the world
-gambling is ok

The only thing better than drunken emailing is drunken yodeling. Have a great New Year!
