Happy New Year, Everybody! Time for a Fresh Start Another year...another clean slate. Pablo's friends Stacey and Dave had a New Year's Eve party, and P invited several of us Marshallites. YJ, Akash, Shimizu, Angie, and I all brought our friends, and we had a good time just hanging out. There was a lot of food and alcohol available, and I may have partaken more of both than I am accustomed to. When he saw my condition after a wine cooler, a shot of tequila, several sips of Angie's moonshine (red wine, lemon juice, tonic, and sugar), and some champagne, Shimizu declared that I was "useless." Now, some may say that I "passed out" around 1:00 AM or so, but I maintain that I "voluntarily went to sleep in my clothes" because I was too lazy to get my pajamas from my car. You can choose to believe whomever you want, but really, if you had to trust me or Shimizu, you'd obviously choose me. C'mon now, let's be real.
The next morning, YJ, Akash, and JT (Tran, not Timberlake) came to P's once again to watch the USC Trojans defeat the Michigan Wolverines at the Rose Bowl. P was hurting from the previous night's revelry (I hear there is photographic evidence of him with his personal bottle of champagne), but improved later in the day, just in time to prepare a tostada bar for us. We had waffles for breakfast and tostadas for lunch. Mmmm...pretty good way to start the new year, I think.
