Time has flown by. I celebrated the New Year with a hodgepodge of people in downtown Austin. My roommate and his friends, ran into Kim and stole her, and Jon and the boys. This was the first year in a long time I had not had set plans and we just kind of winged it. It ended up being a blast. I daresay everyone had safe drunken fun. Surprisingly, even though Jon and Kim have been two of my best friends since 2001 and 2002 respectively, this was our first New Year in the same town, much less together. What a promising way to start the year.
