Give In To Your Id

So…another year just breezed past me like I was standing still. To be fair, I was standing still for a good part of the year, well, sitting still if you want to be a stickler for accuracy.

I suppose there were highs and lows but to tell the truth, I am just glad to still be alive and enjoying my life. I have no complaints which not everyone can say. If anyone reads this I would like to wish you the very best for New Years and may 2013 be a breakout year for you. Good health, good friends and good luck in the New Year.

Our New Years celebration is a really laid back affair. We will watch TV, Louise has cleaned and changed the linens; we will let the old year out the back door at midnight and let the new year in the front. No wild drinking or shouting all night in a crowd of strangers waiting for the ball to drop counting down the last ten seconds to midnight. When I look at that kind of behaviour from this point in my life, it just doesn’t make any sense. Mind you, getting blind drunk makes no sense to me anymore either.

There was a time however when seeing the New Year out with a group of close friends who were all as intoxicated as I was nmade all the sense in the world. We would have one or two parties that we would drop in on, I suppose we were trying to spread the joy among as many people as possible. The years that I liked the best found us back at my friend Don’s parent’s home for midnight. They were nice people, but there was a guy that lived across the street that would put on a man sized diaper and walk up and down the street at midnight to herald in the New Year. He did this for many years and it always amazed me that this guy was crazy enough or drunk enough to walk up and down the street in freezing weather.
Well, I hope that you are able to get that kind of crazy tonight. You don’t have to walk down the street in a diaper, but give in to your id and let the year to come reflect your insanity.


Oh yeah...thanks for reading this all year. I do appreciate it and I hope that you derived some enjoyment, I know I have.
