Now that everyone has had their say on what Christmas means to them, it's time to move on to the next big event.

What does the New Year mean to you?

Anything?

Nothing?

More of the same?

A whole new kettle of fish?

    It's Christmas Eve. Families...
    Stockings...chestnuts...Rudolph and Frosty...those things ring a bell?
    Sorry, watched Die Hard again!

    It usually means numbskulls letting off illegal
    fireworks up streets, or football ovals, (hopefully no one will die this year?

    And hoping to see Sydney's fireworks, without the crap we went through last year?

    Last year, we had to wait til the next day to be able to watch the best part?

    Usual Paid TV crap!


    Melbournes, are pretty boring by comparison, so l tend to watch Sydney if l can?

    • Gotta say, Whatto, I am nuthin' if not a zealot when it comes to New Year.

      Summer, I hit the sun an' zone out, but the Winter break always finds me cogitatin' my sulci off with schemes an' broad thrusts.

      I got some specific pointers, but I am mostly thinkin' thematically, kinda like fashion houses introducin' a new line of goofo clothes.

      "2016 will blaze with azure and heliotrope hues. Carefree yet disciplinarian, she flaunts her passion with water's elemental fluidity and a scent of braised jasmine. Think epaulets, think studs, think gussets."

      That typa thing.

      No shit, I get real serious.

      The past few years it has been a schmear from one year to the next.

      I would stay in and usually pass out unusually early just to get to the next day for more of nothing special.

      This year I am looking forward to seeing the number 2016. I have a lot of things I just want to leave behind. To see that number change will feel like I've shut the door and stepped back out into the world.

        It's just another day off. An excuse for a Sales Ad.

        I used to update my schedules (some people set goals, I just update my schedule)

        I used to pay lip service to it in my marketing newsletter.

        But I just don't think about it any more.

            It's a brave new world - lots of doors to be opened - things to try - risks to take. I hope you have a fun 2016 - you deserve it!

        Why would you be so excited? It's just a wall calendar. And if you are beside yourself, that literally means you are one of two identical twins....or you have mastered the "quantum jump back 5 seconds to be beside your younger self"


        Wait, are you just joking? Because if you are joking, that saves a lot of effort, trying to build the Quantum time differential pump. (That's right! It's REAL!)

        So, what I am saying, is that joking saves you lots of money...where time travel can get expensive. It's a budget issue.

                  I wish I could use the word "Speed date" when I was dating. It would sure have sounded better than, "My date left me after faking a phone call, ten minutes into the date".

                  At least "Speed dating" makes it sound like my choice to end the date. Also "speed dating" sounds better than, "I paid a hooker for 30 minutes".

              Yes, drones usually don't go into a shopping centre and go on a killing spree spouting "God is Great Crap"!

              "Satin is Great", they always get that one mixed up?


              Yes, l know that drones can kill off children, etc as well, war is never the best answer, hopefully we might get that this year?

    It's just another new year. Though, I try to think about new goals and try to better myself as a person each year as I grow. It's also another year that we've all survived. Isn't that good enough?

        3 weeks of purchases (later in the year) where repairs are being turned down as you point out their warranty has expired (secretly laughing inside) and being lambasted by angry customers.

        Curses, Kurt got there first.


        I face going back to work on Jan 4th where the quirky boss has decided in her infinite wisdom that we are going paperless. That means, upwards of 2000 invoices (at the busiest times) a month, instead of being counted in and distributed to the staff to process and make ready for payment, will simply be counted in and scanned to a file and be distributed to the applicable persons folders on the server. Then, the real invoices will be be placed in piles in folders.

        Oh, the turmoil, great in principle but when doing check processing runs, there are quite a few that need tearoffs from the originals or enclosures to put in the envelopes. Not to mention, some are not mailed and have to be returned to campuses. Processing a check run usually means gathering together all the invoices from a drawer from a list that shows what needs to be paid. Having the invoices in front of you with various instructions as to where to send the checks will no longer happen.

        They have not really thought this through.
