Needed some Pandora tunes to get the day going, thank god for 80's music.
My friend Jamie reminded me of three important Colombian New Year's Eve traditions:
- wear yellow underpants on NYE, to bring you luck in the new year
- at the stroke of midnite, swallow a grape - swallow one grape for each toll of the bell for a total of 12. if you choke on any of them, that number grape corresponds to the month in the year in which you will have trouble.
- after you're done downing grapes, grab a suitcase or two (they can be empty) and run around the block. this will help ensure you take a trip in the new year.
Watched part of the Craigslist killer movie on Lifetime tonite. Hope you did too so we can discuss.
