Tell me your story-NYE Style

Okay, so it isn't Tuesday, but I wanted to do a Tell Me Your Story post anyway.

New Year's Eve style.

I having been trying to conjure up my best memory of New Year's Eve. Difficult, because most of them blend together in an alcohol-induced haze. The overarching themes from my younger years involve  friends, a karaoke machine and lots of drinking in the back bedroom. Unfortunately, a good portion of it is preserved on video.

Must destroy all copies before my children are old enough to see...

One NYE that will always make me smile centers around sneaking a friend's underage brother  into a bar in New Mexico. He didn't drink, just hung with us.That same night,  I vaguely remember running the table on a friend's overly-confident (read : cocky jerk)  fiance while everyone thought I was too toasted to stand up, much less focus on the cue ball.

At midnight, everyone else kiss their future husbands, I kissed three gay men. 

The New Year's Eve Kiss-at-Midnight thing as never worked out well for me.

Case in point, at the time of one of the aforementioned parties, I was seeing two different guys (one for fun, one for keeps- I thought) and heavily flirting with a third ( because this was college and he was just hot!).

All three made an appearance at the party.

Fun Guy~ stopped by long enough to try to persuade me to leave with him. Stayed less than fifteen minutes. Wasn't there at midnight, but called at 2 am because he hadn't found anyone better to bring in the New Year with. Yeah, he was a winner.

For Keeps Guy~ Came by for a while. Had been drinking since noon. Drank more with me and inexplicably left at about 11:45.

Hot Guy~ Asked me to go outside with him when For Keeps Guy left so we could "talk some place private" *Promising* Made me sit in the front seat of his freezing truck while he confessed his undying love for my roommate and asked me to help set it up so he could kiss her at midnight.

Yet, another year I kissed three gay men.

So, tell me your story. What is your best New Year's Eve? What is your worst? 

Happy New Year!

HI, your story makes me laugh. All my New Years have been pretty uneventful. I usually end up with friends or family just watching movies. This year was pretty bad though, seeing as how I was sick with a cold and jet-lagged!

Your story is too funny. The story that comes to mind is at a party a friend went into labor and while we kept an eye on the time between pains her husband just wanted to have one more beer. They did make it in time but I'll never forget that one.

Jenee~ Thanks for stopping by! Sorry you spent NYE feeling yucky!

Amy~ That is crazy! I bet it makes for great guilt leverage later.
Husband: "Why do I always have to take out the trash?"
Wife: "Because I was in labor and you had to have one for the road!"

Hope someone drove them to the hospital!
