Well, Well, Well, So we meet again 2009. Silence Octopussy!
Anyways I have had some good experiences on new years eve the last few years, I would like to share some of them with you.
2003 - As a missionary you would think that new years eve would be boring. Well you are correct but I still enjoyed it. Our mission president gave us permission to stay up until midnight(thanks dad). But no t.v. and no party makes new years dull right. Well we played uno and phase ten and we snuck out and borrowed the neighbor kids razor scooters and rode the block to the 7-11 for Slurpee's. Ya, go ahead and say it. We were rebels with out a cause.Except our cause were Slurpee's.
2004 - drove to Ohio. Wait that one sucked. never mind.
2005 - The Vegas. This trip was highlighted by two things. First we stayed in complete strangers houses all week. The first guy we got there and he says "oh ya, I'm leaving at 6 in the morning. just lock the door when you leave" uh, okay. At 6 in the a.m. some guy keeps knocking on the door. Steve and I have the same thought. If we act like we are asleep maybe he will go away. Except Steve blew it by looking up and they guy was looking through the window and saw him. But we stuck with the whole "asleep"thing. Second, some Asian tourist gave us tickets to this 4d show.
2006 - Snowboarding in Breckenridge, CO. Best new years ever. The snow was sweet, the resort was awesome. We saw Shaun White tearin up the park, NBD. Two funny stories about this year. First while snowboarding, I lost control and ran into my buddy,Asian Ryan. My board went over his and between his legs and I knocked him down. So he is on his back and laying on my board, I can't move cause he is on my board. I'm tell him to move but he can't, he is yelling "get off me!" but I can't move either. Best part, this all happened right under the chair lift. Second, right at midnight in d-town Denver this guy comes up and starts rapping to us, here it is"Life ain't so hard living in a penitentiary, OOOOH FIREWORKS!" and the he walks off, distracted by the fireworks. A couple of minutes later we watch a guy get arrested and as he is being led off in handcuffs he looks at us and say" happy new years"nice guy really. Oh and driving in the middle of the night in a blizzard I almost hit a stroller in the middle of the freeway. Not sure if there was or was not a baby in there.
2008 - The Vegas II. Nothing too noteworthy, Shannee did have these furry boots that I tried to return to the wild and she got really mad at me for trying to leave her boots in the middle of the desert. And I might have caused a baby brain damage. We were playing bang your head into the pillow, I may or may not have moved the pillow and his head made contact with the floor. He still doesn't talk. Not my fault though
2009- SLC. Quinn and I went traveled to Salt Lake this year. It was a ton of fun. We scored free tickets to the Utah-Gonzaga game but didn't go. Then we mostly hung out in D-town and waited for midnight. Quinn decided he needed to kiss 5 girls by midnight so we didn't see a lot of him, just randomly in the crowd. Although I did see him almost make out with a big black guy. True story. I touched a guy with a big red feathery coat. Tried to eat Shannee's coat(i was hungry) and then after midnight I kept wishing people happy Easter. This one drunk guy was really confused. He was heard mumbling as he walked off, "what is that guy talking about, its not Easter, its new years" Then in the car this guy honks at us and we roll the window down, this was the conversation. him"happy new years!' me"happy Easter" him "no man, happy new year"me"happy Easter?" him "ya, happy mother effin Easter!' me "oh in that case, happy new years!
