the best of 2009

OK

So I was thinking about what sort of post I wanted to have as my last one for the decade

Something profound?

Memorable?

And I thought, you guys can go read someone elses blog for that shit

So in the interest of saving time

For me & you

There’s alcohol to be consumed you know

Like DUH – it’s NEW YEAR’S EVE

Instead of a blog

I’m going to do a list

Which is a lot like one of my blogs really

Short sentences, one after another

Only with HEADINGS

OOOOOOH

Going through my favourite things of 2009

Here goes…

.

FAVOURITE ALBUMS:

I realise that some of these were released before 2009. I think we’ve already established that I’m a fucktard

.

FAVOURITE SONGS:

(different to albums – these were just songs that ‘did it’ for me this year – again some were released ‘fuck knows when’)

  • you’ll always find your way back home – hannah montanna soundtrack (Don’t laugh you fuckers. If you saw Miss 4 bust a move to this at cheerleader camp, you’d love the shit out of this tune too!)
  • who says – john mayer (’cause this is different for him, and I liked it)

  • heavenly day – patty griffin (I love this song every year)
  • hot & cold – katy perry (the girls and I danced out arses off every time we heard this – yet somehow I still have an arse?!?!)
  • smile – uncle kracker (great song to use for a photo slideshow)

  • looking out – brandi carlile (’cause I just love listening to this chick sing)
.
FAVOURITE MOVIES:
.

FAVOURITE SHOWS (that we played):

(we had a year full of great shows, but these ones came to mind first)

  • the grove – dunstable UK (the audience were 11 out of 10)
  • vicar st – dublin (the best sing-a-long  – the Irish accents helped)

  • north sydney leagues – sydney (where I caught up with mates & that snobby chick spewed)
  • christchurch – new zealand (where I was warned they’d be loud – and they were right – awesomely so)

  • ferntree gully – victoria (where we celebrated Dad’s 25th year in the biz)

.

FAVOURITE BLOGS:

That I totally haven’t even read yet – but I continue to live in hope and will keep carrying them around in my suitcase, just in case I have a spare 6 hours, when I don’t need a nap
FAVOURITE STORIES:
“Um, Tiger? You can marry the blondest, most Nordic-looking chick on the planet – but if you cheat, she will go ghetto on your ass”….quote from one of my favourite bloggers – happy meals and happy hour

What are some of your favourites??

video of the (new year) week

Well, it’s that time of year again

I thought about posting a really funny New Year’s video

One that would make you piss yourself laughing

And then I thought

NAH

I’ll post this one instead

And I’ll just piss myself thinking about you sitting through it

Doesn’t everyone love some ABBA?

Oh, just me then

HAPP NEW YEAR!
