Happy New Year, everyone. As you celebrate, or stay home or however you will pass this change of years, I want you to think about this past year.
No, don’t reflect on all the tragic events. That’s just too sad. No. They will have way more time for mourning. No. I want to focus on what 2013 needs to be for me. And to a lesser extent for you.
See, this past year in 2012, someone got something in their lives that I’ve wanted for a while. Some of you have wanted as well. Well, two people got this, really.
Issac proposed to his girlfriend. In a very ingenious way. You may have seen it. Please watch it once more. Every time I see this I get teary-eyed. It gives me hope. I am a hopeless romantic, and wish for the magic of love. I just know it is out there. I want to fall in love. Hard. I want her to do the same. Life just isn’t fair without it. If you are lucky enough to have found it already, please, PLEASE, don’t let it go. Appreciate it. Appreciate them. Know that some of us aren’t as lucky. We are living life without them still. But we are looking. I am looking. I will find her. Until then. There is hope. Watch the video. It still makes me teary-eyed every time.
Happy New Year.
“Well, birthdays are merely symbolic of how another year has gone by and how little we’ve grown. No matter how desperate we are that someday a better self will emerge, with each flicker of the candles on the cake, we know it’s not to be, that for the rest of our sad, wretched pathetic lives, this is who we areto the bitter end. Inevitably, irrevocably; happy birthday? No such thing.” – Jerry Seinfeld
I’d like to disprove Jerry this year. How better than to have a Karaoke Birthday Party! I’ve done this for a few years now, and it is SO MUCH FUN! Join me, on Saturday, April 10th from 7pm and on for some wacky fun. As one of my close friends called it, my “Dirty Thirty” is upon me… I aim to celebrate. I have so much to give thanks for, one of which is you. You, my friends. I thank that you are in my life, so come on out, bring your friends and let’s party it up!
I set up a Facebook Event, so friend me if you haven’t, or just comment here if you can make it. I’d like a head count, we MAY need more than one room… one year we bled out into the hallways of the establishment lol.
Lincoln Karaoke is an awesome place with PRIVATE ROOMS, so no need waiting for the “DJ” to “pull” your name, when they’re really just calling up their friends and best tippers. Located just south of Bryn Mawr on Lincoln Ave. Check them out here: http://www.lincolnkaraoke.com. There’s a full bar and an appetizer menu. Here’s a small set of pictures of my bday in 2008, it shows one of the rooms http://www.flickr.com/photos/rsutphin/sets/72157608769139593/
So please mark your calendars and bring your singing voices!
“And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.” – Abraham Lincoln (Karaoke)
