rockin' new year's eve
Ah, the holidays went by fast. I keep forgetting New Year's eve is on Friday already. With a kid, we won't be leaving the house. That's fine with me, with all the drunk bastards out and about.
We won't be in Hawaii this year so no firecracker popping. It's pretty darn dangerous, but you can't argue with tradition. One year in Hawaii we saw a house on fire. That's a nice thing to come home too after a night os celebrating. Ugh.
However, in our family it does mean that you have to have the traditional Japanese New Year's food to make sure you have good luck. Tradition is interesting. There are these crazy dried fish for long life and black beans for good fortune. Both of which I find disgusting and refuse to eat, therefore I will be poor and dead soon. Happy New Year!
