Oh, Zoeey. You know I would love you without the ukulele, but I'll admit it doesn't hurt.

(I don't know what I'm doing New Year's. 2005 I had a quiet sleepover with a friend. 2006 I stayed in and don't want to think about. 2007 I complained about drunk/high people and the need to party, made a long this-year-in-LJ post and read Harry Potter. 2008 I read a lesbian book about a horny, hormonal librarian, hosted a small gathering at my house and somehow ended up dancing in my bra and making out with my ex infront of my friends...which sounds cooler than it actually was. 2009 I brought in the new decade with a party at Cake's house and a pinky-promise with Cake that I would finally hook up with a woman. 2010 I went to a party with the 607 Providence lot and it was strange, but I overall enjoyed New Year's with them; the day after sucked.)

I could make my way to a party with some Rowies in Western MA, but...I'm not sure I have it in me to party this year, even for Apocalypto 2012: End of the World New Years Party. The description of the drinking is rather clever...

...but maybe what I need this year is a night in with some literature. I don't really fancy driving across the state this year. It'll be funny to have the New Year's in which I am finally 21 not involve a party with drinks, but it's the sort of funny that fits my life, so I wouldn't mind. At least I won't feel bad if I don't make interpersonal plans. I always wanted to, during university, since I only had a few weeks home and New Year's was an excellent time to see some of my Stateside friends. But now that I'm a Stateside resident again...well, I can spend a night in with a book and my pug without guilt, can't I?

Yes, I can. Mmm what a thought...
