An Award? For me? Aw shucks.

Okay usually I don't do awards since I'm lazy. (That doesn't mean stop giving them to me; it makes me feel special)
But I have to do this one because Stesha told me she'd waddle down here and take away my games if I didn't.
And we just can't have that, because then I'd go into game withdrawal, some things would be said that I wouldn't mean, and you guys would wind up crying and telling me that I'm a different person than I used to be.

Okiedoodle, here goes nothing.
The 2009 New Year's Spirit Award!
And here's the rules:

1. You must be a true lover of the New Year to receive this award. The person to whom you give the award must also be in love with the New Year.
2. List 5 things that you love about the New Year. If you can't limit it to 5 things, then keep going till you run out of space.
3. Pass the award along to as many people as you like. That can be 1 or 50. It's up to you! But keep the New Year cheer going.
4. Let your recipients know that you have tagged them by leaving a comment on their site. Also, link back to the person who gave you the award.

And here's what I love about the New Year:
1. No matter what went wrong in the past year, you can start fresh and strive to make things different in the New Year.

2. I always love the feeling that you get when you wake up on January 1st. It's this odd peacefulness that only comes once a year. Like you know you made it another year, and you're proud of yourself. Next thing you know it's 2010 and you get to have that feeling all over again.

3. This is more about the actual holiday, but shoe on you if you're going to make fun of me for it.
Fireworks! I live in Vegas, so we get the hardcore fireworks show. Every casino blows up some massive sparkly bombs, and it is awesome every time. We usually go up to some sort of hill and look down on the whole city to watch.

4. Getting the chance to meet new people and accomplish new things, because you aren't going through the end of the year slump. You guys know what I mean. "Ugh, it's November. I don't care right now I'm tired."
It's almost like someone puts new batteries in you. "January?! Oh boy let's go ice skating!!"

5. And finally, it's hard to have a bad day when you're at a party with a bunch of people drunk off their asses on champagne blowing into those party horn things. That truly is a great time.
Unless you start giving them those party poppers. Then someone will likely put an eye out.
That's why my Uncle Bob wears an eyepatch now.

Fine, you caught me. I don't have an Uncle Bob.

My decision is to pass this on to those of you that love New Years. Why? Because honestly I can't just pick 10 people, because I love you all.
And that's a lot of work since I'm sitting here in a towel turban trying to get ready to go to the park with Joe and Shelby.

I don't even know what there is to do at the park. Sit and admire the trees? Woo!
I'll probably end up at the restaurants across the street pigging out on junk food. Lord knows I need to put on some weight.

I love you guys, and I'll try to take pictures at the park and give you a riveting next entry!

If I don't, please don't let Stesha take away my games. I'm begging you.

Joe isn't answering his phone.
Looks like I'm not going anywhere today.

Excellent Job!

I love fireworks!!!

Yaya said...

Love your reasons!
It's so true-I love your analogy of revived energy come Jan 1st every year!

Liz said...

Congrats on your award! We have never been real big into New Years. However, maybe if we had fireworks here it would a different story!

Yay for awards, they make you feel all gooey inside...like a warm chocolate chip cookie!:)

Erin said...

I wish I could be in Vegas for the fireworks tonight. I love your new background, by the way.

Honestly? I don't like the whole January 1st feeling. It's eerie and always reminds me that death is slowly creeping up on and I'm not ready to kick the bucket, yanno?

This year, no drunks. We went to a sober party where everyone pretending to get drunk on sparkling cider. No eyeballs were lost.

Where's the fun in that?
