It's Over! Goodbye 2012!

Tell Me Your Story Tuesday

It's Over!


Happy 2013!
     I won't bore you by going back over all the reasons 2012 was not a good year for me. I will just let out a deep sigh of relief and let you know that 
I am so glad it is 2013! 
(which has to be one of the THE most reliable sources on earth, don't you think?)
 promises good things for me this year: 

You've been preparing for the breakthrough and surge in success, so you'll be more than ready to take your rightful place in the limelight. All areas of your life receive the benefits and blessings of Jupiter for the second half of 2013. Your confidence is sky high and you feel more optimistic about life and your future than you have in ages. All of the suffering, heaviness and loss of 2012 will quickly become a thing of the past as you embrace the amazing opportunities being showered upon you in 2013.

Limelight here I come!

So, tell me your story. 
Do you have high hopes for 2013
or was 2012 a banner year for you? 
What'd you do to ring in the New Year? 
Kiss anybody good? Real or imaginary? I don't judge.

HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT FIRST DAY OF THE NEW YEAR!



    

Tell Me Your New Year's Eve Story

Tell Me Your Story Tuesday

Okay, I know it isn't New Year's Eve yet. In fact, if you are like me, you are still so stuff from Christmas you aren't even thinking about Saturday.

But I want to hear your best New Year's Eve stories anyway.


I having been trying to conjure up my best memory of New Year's Eve.

This is difficult because most of them blend together in an alcohol-induced haze. The overarching themes from my younger years involve  friends, a karaoke machine and lots of drinking in the back bedroom. Unfortunately, a good portion of it is preserved on video.

Must destroy all copies before my children are old enough to see...

One NYE that will always make me smile centers around sneaking a friend's underage brother  into a bar in New Mexico. He didn't drink, just hung with us.

That same night,  I vaguely remember running the table on a friend's overly-confident (read: cocky jerk)  fiance while everyone thought I was too toasted to stand up, much less focus on the cue ball.

At midnight, everyone else kissed their future husbands, I kissed three gay men. 

The New Year's Eve Kiss-at-Midnight thing as never worked out well for me.

Case in point, at the time of one of the aforementioned parties, I was seeing two different guys (one for fun, one for keeps- I thought) and heavily flirting with a third (because this was college and he was just hot!).

All three made an appearance at the our New Year's Eve party.


Fun Guy~ stopped by long enough to try to persuade me to leave with him. Stayed less than fifteen minutes. Wasn't there at midnight, but called at 2 am because he hadn't found anyone better to bring in the New Year with. Yeah, he was a winner.


For Keeps Guy~ Came by for a while. Had been drinking since noon. Drank more with me and inexplicably left at about 11:45.


Hot Guy~ Asked me to go outside with him when For Keeps Guy left so we could "talk some place private" *Promising* Made me sit in the front seat of his freezing truck while he confessed his undying love for my roommate and asked me to help set it up so he could kiss her at midnight.


Yet, another year I kissed three gay men.


So, tell me your story. What is your best New Year's Eve? What is your worst? Got any plans for this year?
