Anyone who claims they weren’t sitting in their office all week and wishing to sweet Yahweh that they could go back in time an repeat the holidays is either lying or has recently awoke from a coma and is already overwhelmed with all the nonsense they need to catch up on. The last/first week of the year is a time for resolutions, for ends and new beginnings, and for most people that sucks.
Unless you are Semi Sonic, in which case “every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end” is the only worthwhile thing you contributed to music.
For everyone else, the end of 2008 and the beginning of 2009 is just a way to look at how the previous year sucked in hopes that it will scare you into a better 2009. Which it won’t, because if that philosophy worked, you would have stuck with your resolution this year. But you didn’t, did you?
Also, I’ve been trying to quit smoking this week, so I’ve been waking up and going to bed pissy from nicotine withdrawal. That’s probably not going to bode well on the subjects of our round-up.
Where did your favorite celeb spend New Year’s Eve?
Ashlee Simpson, Pete Wentz, Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag were at Pure nightclub in Las Vegas, looking fat, broken, bearded and slutty, respectively.
The Jonas Brothers, Taylor Swift, Hilary and Bill Clinton, Lionel Richie and Ludacris rang in the New Year in Times Square with the masses.
