How you plan on spending New Year's Eve

Morn,

It is New Ear's Eve day here in NJ.... and I'm thinking longingly on how I will spend tonight.

I am sure it will cause waves of envy because MY perfect NYE consists of bold, brilliant, flagrant..... (wait for it now):

Sleeping thru the entire thingee.

I figure for the past 50 years, the New Ear has arrived without me being awake past midnight (aka 7pm).... and this will be no different.

Now, when I was 16, I used to work at Country clubs, serving the champagne and enjoying the tips from drunk revelers. Cleared over $100 back in those days (oh! The Medieval music collections on cassette tapes that I bought afterwards!).

How 'bout y'all?

And for some NYE goodies...

    Not a single thing that I don't do any other night. I ignore New Year's completely other than returning greetings that are offered by others.

        Hmmm, l do watch the Sydney fireworks, contemplate or pray that this year will be better than the last 2 and move on!

        This year has been better so far, some idiot set off some fireworks from outside the house, but putting the front light on scared him off. No doubt the usual idiots will die because of dodgy fireworks, (happens every year).

        And no fence eating dog either, relief; this time last year, l was being eaten alive by mossies, (mosquitoes) and trying to keep a crazy dog from getting in!

        So this year seems to be off to a better start.


        But yeah, new year res, are like goals, setting a time frame usually doesn't work, as well as the goal in itself on most occasions.


        happy New Year, blah, blah, to everyone!

    Going to an all night rave. The girlfriend is wearing her furry, fuzzy raver boots and I'm wearing my glowing neon glasses!

    Happy New Year everyone.

      They only look fuzzy because of those glasses, perhaps?

      My parents will probably share a bottle of the Champagne someone brought me for Christmas, not knowing that I don't drink at the moment, and I'll have "sparkling apple and elderflower" (which is actually pretty good!). We might watch the Thames fireworks from London, on TV, which are usually spectacular. Other than that, nothing different from any other day.

      And a happy New Year to all.

    I have this beautiful lusty image of actually sleeping ALL thru the night.

    Poetry it is. Sheer poetry.

    Alas, I know it won't happen. So I have chinese food prepared along with a salad as well.

          Finding a woman is easy. Finding a woman that can put up with me, not so easy.

            I want to make it official and give a pre warning to WF :
            To ring in the New Year I will be "drunk Posting" and "drunk trolling" tonight on WF starting at 8 pm est/7pm cst. So if you do not want to be embarrassed by my drunken wittiness and sarcastic humbug ornery then you might want to stay away from here.

            Everyone is fair game tonight. And I mean EVERYONE!

          About an hour ago I was given news that makes for a celebration!!!!!

          My house in MS sold - cash sale - closing in 2 weeks - whoopee!!!!! That's a load off my shoulders.

          I gave up equity in the hope of a quick, clean sale - and that worked.

          Tonight we are going to a big party at the closest neighbor - great food and drink and easy to get home safely! I love a party close enough to leave the moment I get tired of it.

    I'm surprising my wife with a romantic dinner at home, a nice fire in the fireplace, a little television....

    The fire in the fireplace was real, but if you consider my homemade burgers and fries a romantic dinner, then you've been married as long as me. We will probably be asleep by 9.

    Take care all, be safe, have fun. Happy New Year!

      Up to this year - I was with Frank and Suzanne - no desire to hit the roads - not much of a party person and don't drink enough to put up with drunks for long.

      Since moving to Ohio - I've celebrated Thanksgiving, Christmas and NOW New Year's with family and friends. Don't remember when I've been with family for three holidays...this is fun! When I said I was in danger of becoming a party animal, my son splorfed. Wonder what that was about....

          Oh, definitely a big congrats to Kay for such great luck on getting her home sold. 2015 is going to be great with no worries about when it might sell and so much easier to get on with life without nagging worries.

          Gee, Kay, now you should be able to afford to take us all out to dinner.

        It was impossible to watch the hosts of any of the celebrations on TV. Kathy Griffin has diarrhea of the mouth, that British twit on CNN needed to be friggin' sedated and Jenny McCarthy displayed the intelligence, warmth and wit of a bandicoot. Someone please remind me, why is she famous? Must have been a sex tape.

        Overall those folks simply sucked the life out of everything they touched. When Kathy Lee Gifford is the highpoint of the night, you know the world is in deep trouble.

        Happy New Year to everyone. May it be your best year ever.

        Cheers. - Frank

        P.S. I awoke to my first burning question of 2015. If you're appearing on 'Celebrity Apprentice,' are you actually still a celebrity

          Seems that l was a bit luckier, woke at a few minutes past midnight, and enjoyed most of the Sydney fireworks. Not as good as last year, but still good!

          And as you were saying the AU, hosts aren't much better, l didn't have to endure their fill in the last half hour, with wall to wall BS, but got a few minutes afterwards.

          You know, "that has got to be the best fireworks ever, blah, blah, blah".

          At that time just before turning the tv off, one resolution l wish i'd make was watching it online, instead!

          Don't worry about missing some, it should be on your tv internet option, or available on your laptop.

          I will probably go and watch the Sydney one again?

            well, I was going to go out last night - the local pub had karaoke going on and I really wanted to sing my heart out - but then I remembered that it is impossible to get a taxi in this town on NYE, so I stayed in, watched movies, texted the people I most care about at midnight, toasted the New Year with 2 glasses of Henkell Trocken dry sparkling wine - and crashed around 1:30 am only to be woken at 7:30 am by neighbours yet again -

      Now that we no longer have relatives close by that invite all the family over to celebrate, we basically do not go anywhere. Our home is far to small to party inside in the winter and my husband hates to be out on the road on New Year's Eve.

      My younger son and I baked some homemade cookies...and I'm not sure if I can get enough time to bake some homemade bread for dinner tomorrow or not. Right now, I'm tired and the kitchen needs cleaned up from the dinner-making and cookie-baking festivities.

      We aren't big on drinking much, so instead of tonight, maybe I'll open a bottle of wine with dinner tomorrow.
