Pretty good NYE/NYD combo. After work on NYE, went to Virgin Records to kill some time...

Handsome Boy Modeling School - "So.. How's Your Girl?"
Dr. Octogon - "The Octogonecoligist"
David Holmes - "Come Get It I Got It"
Spoon - "Girls Can Tell"

Then to dinner in Brooklyn Heights with Kath's aunts. Ate way too much. Kath could say more about what happened during dinner, if she so chose. I'll refrain, other than to say that if they were my aunts, I'd have thrown something heavy.

Then to a party in DUMBO which was wonderfully low-key and fun as hell. Lots of good people; just enough booze to get us through until 1ish, when Kath and I both realized we were gonna pass out. We somehow managed to find a cab relatively quickly, which was a mixed blessing because the cab we did find hit 95mph on the BQE. Seriously. I've been in cabs before where everything feels waaaaay too fast, but I've blamed it on wierd transmissions or my own lack of sobriety; not here. I peeked over the divider and really saw that the guy was hitting 90+, swerving through 3 lanes of moderate traffic. We made it home in 10 minutes. I'm pretty sure that he was either really, really tired or on something heavy.

Goddammit. I was on the phone with Kath just now, but annoying lady next to me was talking with her boss, and the two of them yapping is like standing next to an airport.

About the XXX DVD. Yes, I know that I went totally insane when this movie came out, and I ranted and raved and everything. I HATE Vin Diesel and don't understand how he has a career in anything beyond his original job as a bouncer. However, I also know that Kath really liked this movie, and was super-psyched to get it on DVD. I bought a whole mess of CDs for myself, and decided to get it for her as a New Year's gift - something to do on New Year's Day, when we were both hungover and such.

And we did in fact watch it yesterday afternoon as we ate our breakfast, and it was fun as hell. It contained my favorite line of dialogue from 2002: "Bitches! Come!" And two bad guys "toasted" each other with the asses of half-naked chicks instead of drinks. Come on. That's just fucking awesome.
