I don't know about you guys, but I'm feeling pretty good about 2011.
After staring into space for 15 minutes, I returned from the abyss with this idea in mind and I smiled to myself. It's such a simple and straight-forward joke, I'm shocked that - in eight years of making comics - I didn't think of it sooner.
And if you're under the impression that seeing a triple feature of Gulliver's Travels, Yogi Bear and Little Fockers won't leave you feeling hung over in the morning, you are free to test your skepticism in at your local multiplex. WILL YOU RISK IT?
In reality, our New Year's Eve was pretty mild at the Brazelton residence. Cami and I don't care for big parties. We went to Times Square to ring in 2004 and that kind of put us off New Year's Eve celebrations for the rest of our lives.
Instead, we stayed close to the house, put Pearl to bed at 6:00, played Chutes and Ladders with Henry before putting him to bed, enjoyed a mixed drink, watched Andy Cohen's "Wig Drop" on Bravo (still not sure how I got talked into watching that) and promptly went to bed at 12:01 AM.
But, hey. We're old! What do you want?
At any rate, I hope everyone else had a safe and happy new year. Personally, I'm feeling very optimistic about 2011. Looking over the last two years of my life, I'm feeling a little bit impervious. Lost a job in 2009, lost friends and family members, suffered unemployment for a year, had a baby, found a job, moved into a new house and finished my Master's degree.
If 2009 and 2010 couldn't crush my spirit, what hope does 2011 have? Now is the time to assert my dominance, take 2011 over my knee and spank the ever-loving crap out of it. 2011 is MY year. Anyone else want a piece of the action?
I thought so. Let's do this.
Happy New Year, one and all. If you're feeling so bold, why don't you tell us in the comments how you celebrated and what you're planning to do in 2011 to make things great. I'm looking forward to your replies!
