Happy New Year!!!

Since I must prepare myself to be the designated driver for this New Year’s Eve, there won’t be a review today.

I was going to review the year 2004, but I don’t remember much besides the U.S. presidential election, the war in Iraq, and the Boston Red Sox winning the World Series.

Instead, since it’s the end of the year, I decided to list my Top 10 favorite Impulsive Buy reviews from 2004.

10. The 100 Simple Secrets of Happy People
9. Mountain Dew Pitch Black
8. Ice Breakers Liquid Ice
7. Mrs. Butterworth’s Little Dunkers
6. Jamie Cullum – Twentysomething
5. Firefox 1.0
4. Jello Oreo Instant Pudding
3. Maruchan Creamy Alfredo Instant Lunch Ramen Noodles
2. Sexy Hair Concepts Hard Up Hair Gel
1. Chips Ahoy Cremewiches

Happy New Year!

    i visited my parents this year for new years. i thought that this would be the first year in a long time that i would be sober on new year’s eve. nope. weird getting drunk with the parental units for the first time ever (at a chinese pot luck no less!)


  10. Hey, look at this way, I was your designated sleeper. Who had the most fun?

    Hi there Marvo,

    PS Happy New Year!

    Suzanne – To get a 5 out of 5 at the Impulsive Buy is a very complex system that uses all five senses (and sometimes the sixth sense). It’s carefully thought out for about a minute or so. Then it’s slow roasted over an open flame and seasoned with several secret herbs and spices. Wait. What are we talking about again?

    karma – Happy New Year.

    Aymie’s Mom – A little too much information for Aymie.

    Wyatt – I don’t drink the stuff to put a hop in my step. I drink it to forget about my 2004.

    Mimi – Happy New Year to you.

    Aymie – Oh, Angelina Jolie with her luscious lips. I feel like watching Tomb Raider…in slow motion.

    Chana – Yes, I was the designated driver, driving around four beautiful women. Oh wait, does it sound incestuous if one of the four women was my twin sister?

    Mandy – Happy New Year to you too.

    JIN – I’m afraid to get drunk with the parents…because I’m afraid I’ll be so drunk that I might make a pass at my mom.

    PWC – Thank goodness you were my designated sleeper, because I didn’t get home until 5:30 in the morning.

    Flirt – I’ll go and check it out.

    Happy New Year Marvo! :-)
