Since New Year's eve is really not about food, its all about champagne, we're just gonna skip that and go on to New Year's day, which is all about food. When everywhere else is closed on this holy day of universal hangover (and for people under 18 just universal boredom), pizza places everywhere are open. Our dear friends Tomi and Patrick were able to order pizzas with just a click on the internet! Isnt it amazing what the kids nowadays can do online.. So if ur working in a pizzeria, take the new years day off. Its gonna be busy and people are gonna be cranky. We'd also like to take this moment to remember those who were so hungover that they could not leave the bed to eat a single bite and felt like dying. If this sounds familiar to you, us health conscious bagels strongly suggest a new years resolution of controlling the consumption of alcoholic beverages on New Year's and replacing them with water.
Speaking of new year's resolutions.. well we hate them. No one sticks to them, and you just feel guilty throughout the year for not doing so. And most of all, nobody has the energy to concentrate on them after staying up until 00.00 the previous day (i mean my god, CSB likes to go to bed early but on New Year's everyone just expects her to stay up. Thats just plain mean). So we'd like to quote our biggest idol Bridget Jones, since she so well puts it:
"I do think New Year's resolutions can't technically be expected to begin on New Year's Day, don't you? Since, because it's an extension of New Year's Eve, smokers are already on a smoking roll and cannot be expected to stop abruptly on the stroke of midnight with so much nicotine in the system. Also dieting on New Year's Day isn't a good idea as you can't eat rationally but really need to be free to consume whatever is necessary, moment by moment, in order to ease your hangover. I think it would be much more sensible if resolutions began generally on January the second."
Thank you, Bridget Jones. Could not agree more. And seriously if u need a resolution to scream over the fireworks, then take something easy. Like we did. Our resolution is to buy candy at least once a week, and remain honest to each other (meaning also that insulting is permitted and the other one cant get mad). If u choose to stop biting ur nails or always do ur homework, you'll just fail to keep it, get a really low self-esteem and eventually be miserable and self-destructive. Is that something u really want? REALLY?
Anyway, we'll be writing again in two days, but till then u can reminisce the year 2010 through our blog entries. Now let's welcome TWENTY ELEVEN !!!
