If you didn't jump onto the bandwagon of bottled water, bunkers and stuffing your savings into a mattress with your favorite copy of the Holy Bible in 1999, the manufacturers of y2k have the latest garbage marketing scheme for the New Year (expect e-mails from your Aunt Claire in Minnesota and Shelly in Accounts Payable): 2008 will have an extra second.
My recommendation for this extra second: Use it to party. Take a shot of your favorite dark liquor to reward yourself for participating in the hyper social-conscious that marked 2008 and help you ring in the New Year with a stellar performance on Guys Gone Wild.
Welcome to my series, "Oh Nein: 6 Trends of 2008 to Avoid in New Year."
Today, Keep in Gay in 2009. In the wake of Obamamania and Anne Hathaway bangs
(currently seen on Ms. Hathaway's talentless co-star Kate Hudson in their upcoming estrogen laden, Down's Syndrome inducing flick, Bride Wars), take a break from the tree planting and protesting Prop 8 and do something stupid.
All work and no play makes Jack a dull I-Banker, and we see how well 2008 panned out for them.
Use 2009 to expand your comfort zone and not in a Natasha Bedingfield way (the Dim Brit equates laughing out loud on the subway with being "a non-conformist"). Get a little uneasy, and challenge your own status quo instead of the rocking the social foundation, which thankfully has a more solid forecast post-Innauguration.
