New Year's Eve

For the first time in a long time I have no idea what I'm doing for New Year's Eve.

Rome Girl is heading out of town to be with some of her friends - which makes sense because usually me and my friends go bar hopping on New Year's and she hates that shit.

But, over the past few days we've found out that the three bars we usually hang out in are all going to be closing early tonight.

And, the default bars we'd normally try are all asking for like $50 cover charges - which is not going to happen.

So, we are going to play it by ear. Bar St Roch closes around 8 p.m. so I'm going to meet the Iceman there around 6 and then when they close we'll wander around and see if there is anything worth doing.

I might just come home early - one of the reasons I like hanging out at my regular bars on New Year's is that it cuts down on the "random asshole" factor of Dec. 31 and I don't know how much patience I'll have for being in crowded bars filled with French people who don't know how to drink.

On the other hand, I go to Madrid in 10 days, so even if New Year's is a bust I have that to look forward to!

One Hand Clapping

Since I know not everyone will be going out tonight and I know that lots of you like porn and since I know a little bit about porn, I thought I'd make a collection of some of the hottest links for your pleasure.

Anal Amy It's all text, so it's essentially work safe. It's the diary of a college girl who likes to take it up the backdoor. Surprisingly well written.

One D At A Time A blog written by a new york girl who calls herself "Slut_Machine." It's about 95 percent work safe, though sometimes there are some suggestive photos.

Confessions of a College Callgirl. Exactly what the title implies. She might be interviewing me next month because of my work writing escort copy.

Fleshbot's Best Of Babelogs Nothing but hundreds of pictures of pretty naked girls. Not even remotely work safe.

X-Factor A collection of really well written and very romantic stories about women who cheat on their partners. It's not typical explicit cuckold stuff - the girl generally does fall in love with the dude she's having an affair with. Plus, he deals in a realistic way with birth control issues, but still keeps everything hot.

Kristen's Collection Roughly 1,200 erotic stories broken down into categories. Some are really hot, some are really not. But, you can generally find any fetish you are looking for.

Preggoman Erotic stories about making babies.

Dark Wanderer Stories about women who like making love to dark skinned men.

April Flores The adult blog of porn star April Flores - who is both really pretty, and very Botticelli - a rarity in porn.

MC Stories Evil little erotic stories involving mind control, hypnotism and sometimes people getting turned into robots.

The Girls Loving Girls Archive Stories about teenage girls having their first lesbian experiences. Generally more romantic than explicit, though there's some nasty porn here too if you look for it.

Boy, Interupted

So, pretty much every decent bar in town closed early tonight (mostly because they didn't want to have to deal with enforcing the new smoking ban at 12:01 and I can't blame them. Imagine trying to force people right after midnight on New Years to stop smoking!)

Anyway, the Iceman and I hung out at Bar St. Roch until it closed at 8 p.m. and then we all got invited over to the pasta restaurant next door for more drinks. It turned out that they had tons of reservations around 10 p.m. but none before that and they thought that having people in their place earlier might encourage some walk in traffic.

I sorta wanted to wander around and try to find an actual bar but the people were really cool and they kept giving us free drinks (to the point where I had to actually stick a 10 euro note into the owners hand and say "either take this for the drinks or take it as a tip, I don't care, just fucking take it." )

More and more people kept showing up and they kept saying that every bar in town was either closed or else 40 euros ($55) to get in before you even had your first drink.

Then the Iceman realized he was too drunk to continue and wanted to go home and I realized that I really didn't want to go exploring on my own (because I can't imagine spending $55 to be alone in a bar) so I went home too around 10:15.

Now I'm going to play Zelda, take breaks and blast Metallica, do shots of vodka, and sing along to really offensive songs and in general be a free drunken spirit.

Oh - and pet my cat who seems to be really happy that someone is home with her on New Years.
