And more Darwin Awards to come: http://www.darwinawards.com/darwin/darwin2002-08.html
Today is not only the first day of 2009, it's also the 7-year anniversary of a Darwin Award "winner" from Croatia trying to open a grenade with a chainsaw. It didn't end well.
Anthony and I had a great time at Bound's annual New Year's party last night, even though the venue had possibly the worst bar staff in DC. They didn't accept credit cards, they carried bills around in their hands, took several minutes to fulfill orders and make change, and appeared to spend more time arguing with each other than working. The awesome bartender at Club Liv can do more as one person than the staff at Asefu could with three people. And that's just sad. Still, it was great to ring in the new year with my guy and our friends, including some we hadn't seen in far too long. With the full crowd at the New Year's party, I'm hoping this means a comeback for Bound in 2009. It's already looking like a good year for me; in addition to a great relationship, I've also heard about a few job opportunities. And few things would make me happier in the next year than to say goodbye to my current coworkers and take a more positive direction in my career. Also, with a brand new replacement for my piece of crap laptop, I hope to be posting more in the coming year. I didn't update my blog nearly enough last year.
