This weekend was Christmas, in case you slept through the last however many years of your life and didn't know that, so of course I was bored as shit because I'm a Jew. All of my Jew-y friends are back East, so I planned on ignoring the holiday by watching the Buffy marathon on Chiller and getting Chinese food.
Despite the fact that LA is run by Judaism, all the Chinese places were actually closed (WTF?), so that didn't work out. I can't remember what I actually ate all day, but I think it fell into the sandwich category.
Enough about my stupid non-holiday, because you guys don't care. Besides, I won't be stumbling through inertia for much longer because I made the most kick-ass New Year's plans ever.
I was SUPPOSED to road-trip it with one of my girlfriends to NOLA and hook it up (or hook up- RAWR) with Sara Nips, but said friend disappeared on me at the last minute. Fortunately for me, I was able to reach out to Riot, one of my New York cohorts so named not only for her wicked sarcasm delivery but also her ability to drink up and party down, and she basically ordered me to penetrate 2011 with her in Texas. We would start the decade off right at a gig in Dallas and then hightail it to Austin, one of the music capitals of the country. My flight was booked before we hung up the phone.
Don't worry, Nips- I love you and this NOLA weekend IS happening. Trust.
Anyway, I'm SO psyched for Austin. Besides NOLA and Chicago, it's the one city in the US that I've never been to that I absolutely have to visit. The live music community there is astronomical, and it's Texas, so I'm pretty sure everyone can drink me under the table. Plus Riot is originally from Texas, so she knows where all the most humiliating mechanical bulls are located. It's definitely going to be one of the greatest vacations of my life.
This means I'll actually be in a pretty awesome mood for the rest of the year, thanks to Riot's excellent trip-planning skills. As if that weren't enough, I've also been presented with another blog award, this time from one of my
I actually totally stalk her blog too, but I can't give this back to her, or the four other well-deserving bloggers (bloggesses? bloggi?) that she passed this along to. So let's see...

Christina @ Christina In Wonderland
and of course...

I adore all of you guys, and remember, I know where you live. At least on Facebook. (Except for you, Ginn. I see you when you're sleeping. AHAHAHAHA!)
Happy New Year, everyone!!! See you in 2011... if I'm awake.
