New Year’s Eve…
I don’t do New Year’s. I don’t go anywhere unless I’m playing — and then only under duress. I plan on doing the same thing this New Year’s Eve that I do every New Year’s Eve. I’m going to open a bottle of wine, press “record” in my studio, and pick up a guitar. Hopefully, if all goes according to plan, I’ll be in bed by 11:30. I usually like to miss the countdown.
I don’t really know what my problem with New Year’s is..I know I had a really bad one in high school once, but I seem to recall not liking it before that. I think I don’t like the obligation of it all…the dressing up, the going out, the battling to survive among the amateur drinkers, the “what’s your resolution?” thing (which no one keeps anyway). I just don’t dig it. I could do without the whole thing.
So…have a happy one, I guess. I’ll be treating it like any other day…as usual.
