Tell Me Your Story Tuesday
But I want to hear your best New Year's Eve stories anyway.
I having been trying to conjure up my best memory of New Year's Eve.
This is 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.
