Happy New Year, all you beautiful, sexy people! Did you do anything special to ring in 2014? I just got drunk and watched the ball drop, and this morning, T.O. and I cooked up a bangin’ breakfast of peach pancakes, hash browns, and chorizo and eggs. That’s a breakfast of winners, my friends.

[party snapshots]

Tomorrow I turn 30, but on Saturday I celebrated like I was turning 21. The intent was to do a pub crawl, but we only went to two places because we’re old and the second place served liquor and we had the upper room/party deck to ourselves away from the crowd (see again: old). Below…
