Who said money can’t buy you happiness?

Happy New Year… sniff… sniff…

Normally I love New Years Eve… we get to go to a party, hang out with friends, drink copious quantities of alcohol and then come midnight… run around kissing inappropriate people for the rest of the evening… what’s not to love?  🙂  But this year in my current drug hazed pain wracked state… New Years Eve didn’t seem worth celebrating.  I’d been invited to three NYE parties at GoddessBek’s place, Fav BIL’s place and Angsty Carrot’s place and in the end, I chose to stay home… have Indian take out, a handful of pain killers, barely two bourbons and watch some old movies.

How sad and pathetic am I?   🙁

So 2007 bites the dust and thank fuck for that I say …. cos it truly sucked ass.  Started off on such a promising high point too.. what with my  father passing away and all in January and ended with me having another car accident in November and finding myself unemployed in December!  Woo-hoo!  What a hoot!  Fun for the whole family!

Here’s a Cool vs Uncool list for 2007, starting with the Uncool cos they just seem easier  🙁

1.   Dad passing away… we knew it was coming but it were still a shock
