So, my family says that if I dont cook and EAT black eyed pea soup for new years, then I will have bad luck. Yeah, there a bunch of hillbillies. Anyways, I hate black eyed peas and Im not much of a soup person. So, fuck it, this year can not possible be worst than the last 27 where I had crap soup.

Never heard that before. Matter of fact, I never knew New Years had superstitions attached to it, and I'm not a superstitious person.

Isn't there some New Year's superstition about eating chicken on New Year's Day?
