You’re Invited To A Typical New Year’s Eve Party

Not that I saw that terrible looking movie “New Year’s Eve” — I’m waiting for it to be on DVD, obvs — but there was a line from the trailer that I found to be quite on point. “New Year’s is the worst holiday to go out on,” says Ashton Kutcher’s sure-to-be-douche-y character. “People who…

How To Have A Low-Key New Year’s Eve Party That Doesn’t Suck

Call me a Grinch, but I’ve never really celebrated New Year’s Eve. It’s freezing cold, it’s all about drinking (which means other people barfing and fighting), it involves staying up until the wee hours of the morning, and sometimes your crazy-ass friends expect you to shell out $250 for some stupid club. No thanks! I…

New Year’s Eve is completely overwrought with expectation, isn’t it?  Will your party be hip-hop-video-caliber awesome? Who are you going to kiss? And most importantly, are you wearing enough sequins?

Who’d You Kiss On New Year’s Eve, Hot Stuff?

One New Year’s Eve, back in college, I literally had to duck to avoid the kid who lived down the hall (who looked like Jesus and smelled like he hadn’t bathed since then) from drunkenly planting a kiss on me at midnight. He had been dancing with his pet snake for hours before he tried…
