    At work until 12:45 AM, someone threw all the paper toilet seat liners in a toilet for a second consecutive night.

    happy new year, folks.

    I hope the world doesn't end in this one. I don't think I have a lot of hope for that, though.

    fuckin 2016 was sure as hell trying.

    Apparently Mariah Carey's new years eve performance was a trainwreck

    http://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/01/arts/music/mariah-carey-new-years-eve-times-square.html
    “We can’t hear,” she said in the opening seconds of “Emotions” after she sashayed down the stage before more than 1 million people gathered to watch the ball drop in Manhattan.

    Standing still with her left hand on her hip while music played, Ms. Carey told the audience that there had not been a proper sound check before her performance. Then she said, “We’ll just sing,” and noted proudly of her song, “It went to No. 1.”

    But she could not manage the notes that followed, and she either forgot lyrics or did not want to deliver a subpar performance.

    ABC quickly cut to shots of the Times Square crowd as Ms. Carey tried to perform some of her choreography. She continued suggesting fixes from the stage, and at one point seemed to defend herself. “I’m trying to be a good sport here,” she said.

    When the number ended, the crowd cheered her on. “That was — ” she said, pausing for effect, “amazing.”

    I hope live drunken celebrity meltdowns become the new NYE tradition.

    I didn't see it but from that excerpt it sounds like she was drunk or something?

    No, that was Jenny McCarthy; who gave an 8yo girl her boots because the kid said they looked nice.

    Well, I started 2017 off on a high note

    Getting carried out of an open bar at the Bellagio by my coworkers, waking up to realize I was still drunk, and then immediately rolling into Hangover Preparation Mode by downing a bottle of water and cold pizza

    Played Creative Clash for the first time, won in the last 30 seconds before midnight, drank plenty of water before bed, got up and had donuts and coffee. Worked out pretty well.

    My sister threw up on my cat. My cat stress-vomited because my new bachelor suite has no safe places for him to escape to. We drank a lot, and finished the night by watching an episode of Bob Ross at around 1:30 AM.

    For some fucking reason Bob Ross always ends up happening in my NYE celebrations. It was a very good night, though!

    We had one friend over, this year with his girlfriend, made burritos, watched a bud Spencer and Terence Hill movie and played Mario Kart.

    So same procedure as every year, only that we now have a kid so we stop earlier. Well, I stayed up till 5, and my son was super great and after waking up around 3 we put him in our bed so he slept almost until 9. Since I didn't drink so much, today was fine with a short nap in the afternoon.

    It was excellent and I don't even care about the walkout, because of all companies this one would care the least about that happening

    I passed out HARD in the car though, and suddenly we were back at the house. Time travel is real!

    wow NYT being pretty savage here having just watched a video of it, maybe their writer doesn't get sarcasm and she said "I have no idea about this song so let's just say it went to number one", as a musician I just felt frustrated for her though her dancers' earpieces were clearly working so she should have just stole one of theirs

    anyway I'm still healing up and started a new crazy pills with strict NO BOOZE warnings so we chilled at home, watched Anthony Bourdain shows from 2002, my husband had a few fancy beers and I got my sparkling grape juice on, and we had nachos and strawberries for midnight snack... and then for whatever reason both our phones FREAKED OUT and started sending the same texts like eight to twelve times so everyone must have thought we were really in the holiday spirit

    So if you do something twice in a row, it becomes a tradition, so I guess my New Years Eve celebration now is "lay in bed, drunk and half naked, and watch Return of the King until I fall asleep"
    I get a little misty when Théoden gives his battle speech.

    That part is so good! He totally improved riding down the line and hitting the spears with his sword.

    It was always my favorite mental image in the novel and I was so pleased that they did it justice in the movies!

    I spent NYE the same way I have for several years now: The annual Gaki no Tsukai 24 hour no laughing batsu game. 6 straight hours of Japanese comedians being slapped on the ass whenever they laugh.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=69iSXks1bes

    That's actually from last year's, but it demonstrates the absurd stupidity.

    I woke up at 4am today to find my foot in so much pain that moving it damn near brings me to tears

    So I waited 5 hours for my 6 year old to get up so he could bring me crutches

    2017 starting off just where 2016 left off I see

    Is it tradition if I do it the other 364 days a year?

    I've done it before many years ago, but this time was much better. I have to use the machine until I can lose weight, which is what I did the last time.

    I've got good shit in the works for 2017, next week in particular.

    I've got a phone interview at Nintendo, a 4th round interview at another place I've been very excited and optimistic about, and I have a wrestling seminar with Cody Rhodes.

    Later in the month, I may have my first shot at my first title belt.
