Goodbye 2006, You Son Of A Bitch
What have you left me with?
You've left me with mother-f'in New Year's Eve, where I always stand awkwardly at the stroke of midnight as everyone around me couples up for the kiss. 24 New Years under my belt and never a New Year's kiss. This year, my girlfriend's 2000 miles away, so let's make that 25.
Oh 2006, we may have had some good memories together, but you did me wrong.
So come on 2007, shake ya ass, show me what you working with...
Okay, yes, I just had a conversation with a calendar year, what?
Well, here's to a clean slate and a happy new year, my friends! Click on the link below for some tracks from last year's New Year's post, coupled with lots of new goodies. Leave some love in the comments!
