And surely you’ll buy your pint cup/And surely I’ll buy mine/And we’ll take a cup’o kindness/

for Auld Lang Syne

First, let’s get this out of the way
Happy 2008! Let’s see…I just got up (8:30 a.m.) and I am about to get my to-go cup of coffee ready and head out for shopping, movie (P.S. I Love You) and brunch/lunch with friends. I have to admit this is the first time, in a long time that I haven’t been hangover on January 1. Me thinks me will like mocking the hangover people that are out in public today.

Testing, Testing, Conor Oberst
I know of not one, not two but three people that went to the not-the-best-kept-secret Conor Oberst (of Bright Eyes) concert. I am can’t really be too jealous. (Thy shall not covet thy friend’s tickets to Conor Oberst when thy was too lazy/out of touch to by thy own)
