What a loser! Blogging on New Year's Eve!
1. I'm broke.
2. I've been drinking far too much lately anyway.
3. I've got a literary journal to edit and publish, and a PhD chapter to finish, and they're both already a month late.
4. I hate New Year's. Snooty chicks from Pakuranga and staunched-up blokes in denim jackets from Henderson flood into the central city with false displys of bonhomie, which fade to sulen aggression as the New Year takes them well over their alcohol tolerance limits. It's worse than the Devonport Wine Festival, and that's saying something.
5. I'm a loser. Is that good enough?
