new years day in babbling on January 2, 2008 January 2, 2008 Share Facebook Twitter Pinterest Google+ Email i didn’t get the bowtie memo Happy new years to all of you out there. New Years Day is a big day for me. One year ago, Otto became my roommate. Two years ago, I got lost on a bicycle carriage in Shanghai and three years ago my father passed away. Today was rather calm, as I celebrated Otto’s birthday and booked a trip to my friend Amy’s wedding in LA in February.
