On New Year's Eve's Eve Zilla turns another year older. By now it should be easy old-timer!

Yes, it's true. Zilla is advancing in age at what seems to be an ever increasing rate. Fuck 40. I'm wizzing right past it and heading straight for 50! Not sweet.  
I think I'm gonna grow my hair out, put it in a pony tail and wear a stud earring. Then I won't seem old to the young folk.

Doesn't it suck to have your birfday so close to Xmas? Do you get adequate presents? This must have been quite annoying as a child.

Everyone always teased me that some of my Christmas presents were withheld and used as birthday presents. To make up for it, my parents always let me pick out my birthday present. That way, if there was something I wanted and didn't get after Christmas, I was able to snag it. So I liked that part.  
Getting birthday presents wrapped in Christmas paper sucks though.  
Of course it was sweet for my parents because I was a tax deduction that entire year.

Happy New Years! Good lord it is a warzone over here. Its only 6:30 and there are explosions everywhere. Take our 4th of July and multiply it by 20 - no kidding. They don't have silly little rules limiting fireworks to smoke bombs and snakes. I am hearing things a lot bigger than M80s thats for sure.  
I am questioning the logic of going out tonight and walking around. I am watching people throwing firecrackers from the apartments. Did I mention, there are explosions everywhere?? A movie night at home sounds pretty good right now. But, I guess this is typical.  
Wish me luck!

When Creeko and I were in Alicante, Spain, they were celebrating the 400 and something yeaar anniversary of the city. It was a week of celebration with the fireworks on par with the shock and awe bombardment of Bagdad. Firecrackkers so loud it would set off car alrms from blocks away. You could feel the percussion in your chest.

Ya, I had a similar experience in Spain with Creeps. In fact, we had to turn in early because of a shrapnel injury to Bea (firecracker dust in her eye).  
Against my better judgement, we went out to walk around in the festivities. I am not used to big cities, it was crazy. Seriouly drunk people everywhere. Two things we had to dodge - the puke on the sidewalk and the firecrackers being thrown at you. It seemed everyone had a box of crackers! I watched this old lady lighting them. The difference between here and Spain was in Spain they lit whole packs at once. In Budapest, they lit one, but then it was tossed. Take a huge, packed crowd, drunk idiots, and explovsives, and you will get Fatty not hanging around long.  
So I survived :) Come Midnight, after the anthem, all hell broke loose as people lit the remaining of their works.

Ah... I guess there are SOME redeeming qualities to living in a civilization... we had drunks, but no explosives, luckily. My friends last night learned the hard way that if you live across the street from a bar, YOUR house becomes the after-hours bar pretty easily.
