Woot. 2013.

Happy New Year from Sydney.



On another note;
Wasn't there a whole bunch of "enlightened individuals" here on ATS that were going to make us eat our words at the end of the world because we would never make it to 2013?

Bleh.

Us in WA don't even get fireworks. We get a pretend street party in the shadiest part of the city, at which when midnight rolls on, the police walk in single file down the street evicting everyone.

At least that was what happened last time I bothered to 'celebrate' the new year in perth.

it's just a 40c muggy hot humid stinking sweaty sunday of a day really for this side.

you see, we get a pretty firework display on Australia day. Which we have to celebrate among all the 'invasion day' protests...

Might i just say, that while we do understand we are not the first in the world to celebrate (hence the title "one of"), howcome we are always quick to call ourselves "among the first". Sorta like the guy you see in youtube comment pages making the "first" comment.

We had the same on the 21st of December, where people (who were obviously unaware of how time zones work) from around the world looked to us to see if anything was going to happen - like if a meteor hit us, we would be hit first, then america
because apparently we were the first to see the 21st of December.

All i'm saying is, let's be mindful - there's still NZ and the pacific islands who get little recognition. Let's not get too ahead of ourselves. We can celebrate without the arrogance.

Besides, what is there in 2013 that can't wait? haha. People were looking forward to '12 and look at what it gave us. 2013 is an entire year that is starting with political heat on the gun control debate over in the US. And that's just one thing to look forward to.
People are too hopeful

haha northbridge? Don't get me started. I was surprised there was no fireworks. There's so much to do here, said nobody, ever.

Don't even get me started about "australia day". If being Australian constitutes as driving around with a huge flag attached to the bloody roo bar, with a "f off we're full" sticker on the back, while shouting at people, then i will have no part.

2 hours to go over here were Winofiend and myself hail from. Stars for everyone!!

Happy new year from Barrow Island guys. Now, be sure you think about the 6 rules in an Aussies life:

1. FLY THE FLAG AND BE THE LIFE OF THE PARTY...........


2. REMAIN POSITIVE.....


3. STICK TO YOUR IDEALS, ALWAYS......


4. REMEMBER THE PLEDGE........


5. HONOUR OUR BOYS AND GIRLS IN THE MILITARY.......


6. AND REMEMBER......

WOOOOOOO< said as a Rik Flair Woooooo

Missed my first Summer Sydney Harbour fireworks party in about 10 years! No one does it like the Sydney siders! Hope you all celebrated hard to do me proud.

Im on a mountain in the snow... On crutches about to hit Defcon 1 full nuclear explosion launch as I cant find boots to match my knee brace for the party here.


Happy New Years!
