Someone just invited me to a New Year’s Eve party!
Typically, this day is a horrible disappointment. However, I had an amazing NYE when I was new in London town. And since this is my first NYE in Seattle, I’m hoping ‘New to the City’ is the exception to my New Year’s Eve curse. Below is what happened in 2010…
NYE: LONDON 2010
The plan? Make it unforgettable.
The usual? An evening with close friends.
The problem? I’m in London. I don’t have any close friends.
Found: Tickets to a sold-out party.
Plan B? <<INSERT IDEA HERE>>
–Walk to Trafalgar Square–
What to do? New Year’s Eve fireworks display!
Big Ben, the London Eye and the River Thames as the backdrop.
Time: HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
Received: 1 hoot and holler
Delivered: A 10-minute tutorial about how to be a gentleman.
–Walking through Leicester Square–
A Kiwi drinking out of a brown bag.
Kiwi comes along (cost of beer revealed).
–Walk to Mayfair–
New environment: The Black Diamond Ball.
Get approached by a 24-year old.
Onto the next.
Eat a pasty.
Step into my house.
It’s the scalper.
He wants money for his wasted tickets.
Jog the fuck on!
How was my New Year’s Eve?
