Le Bonne et Heureuse Année

Happy New Year!

I hope that you started 2009 off the way you wished... was the night as fully overrated as you'd expected - 0r did you surprise yourself?

The Sydney fireworks this year were absolutely amazing. This was largely due to the out-of-this-world view my friend and I had on the deck of her boyfriend's apartment (photo below).

However there was no countdown kiss for me, as I had made these plans before P. (bf) and I became official.

But as I went to bed that night I came to a realisation about New Years Eve and it's mystical pressure power = it's the countdown's fault.

When you think about it, the night flows like any other: a few drinks, some great company, laughter...

It isn't until that "10 - 9 - 8..." that everyone FREAKS out,

"This is it. The New Year is coming and I don't know what to do. Quick! Kiss me."

And BOOM, the fireworks begin and it's time to assess. Not the year you just had, oh no, but the night,

"Did I do that right? Did I put a significant amount of pressure on myself to have fun tonight?... Yeah I guess I could have picked up my game in that 10:45pm - 11:30pm lag period."

How did you do?

Was it your best yet, or your worst? Do tell...
