My poor Cleo is scared because idiots are shooting fireworks off already.
It started at around 7.

Our village does it's own ball drop, there's usually a few hundred people that come out to the village square, depending on the weather. Tonight it's 14 degrees. We put our pajamas on under our clothes for insulation and so we can go straight to bed when we get back. It's a three block walk for us and we could hear the Elvis impersonator singing as we got up there. We counted down to the ball drop, kissed, blew our whistle and horn and walked back home. Happy New Year everyone.

My sister and I went out around five or a Chinese supper and then Mom and I channel surfed several TV stations trying to find something really good to watch. (wE FAILED). We finally ended up watching Dick Clark's NEW YEARS EVE show, and had snacks and a glass of champagne. It's about a quarter till one in the morning and I'm on TCS and drinking my second glass of champagne. Probably go to bed in a few minutes.

I'm having a crappy NYE too. My cat has cancer, so I haven't been in a partying mood for awhile. There are plenty of things to do in the Bay Area but I didn't feel like dealing with huge crowds, traffic, drunk drivers, etc.

Nonetheless, I did go to a party tonight for about *TEN* minutes. I didn't know this woman too well but she is very nice and invited me to her party. Unfortunately, I couldn't find parking and had to park very far away on MacArthur Blvd, which is a sketchy street in Oakland. I couldn't help but think that someone would break into my car. When I arrived at the party, I didn't know anyone and it was super crowded. I kept on going in circles trying to figure out my place but to no avail. I secretly sneaked out about 10 minutes later. I feel bad about that but I just wanted to be at home. I brought a platter of cookies but did not have the chance to eat one!

Now I am happy at home with my two cats. At midnight, we will head over to the deck and watch the fireworks. I live in a penthouse apartment with a million dollar view overlooking the Bay Area. I can see firework displays from all corners of the Bay Area including Oakland, San Francisco, and Marin. I can't wait!

Happy New Year to everyone!

I sat home with nothing to do for new year's! I rang in the new years sitting on the couch, talking to my dad and my brothers on the phone. I live 6 hrs away from them and miss them terribly.

Well I went into town, had too much to drink and ate far too much Burger King at 4am.

It is now 12.30 AM on the 2nd of January and I still feel yuck!

Even though I am fighting the cold from the black lagoon....

my fiance and I still did our traditional New Years Eve (acutally its my tradition since this started WAY WAY before I even met him but now its our tradition since he enjoys it as much as I do)

We met up at a Japanese Resturant (our usual place was closed for renovation so we ended up at a Japanese/chinese place this year still good though) with members from my dojo. (ie our sensei's and fellow classmates) AFter that we then headed to the sensei's house (we are all good friends they don't invite EVERYONE from the dojo just those who are acutal friends of theirs) for dessert (we all bring something. this year I bought a chocolate and guinness cheesecake) and we play board games until 11:45 when we switch on the TV and watch the ball drop. After that...we just sit around and gossip and chat until about 2 and all go home. Very fun...and VERY relaxing.

I had modest plans to play Scrabble with my downstairs neighbors, but they didn't get home from a family dinner until it was too late, so even those plans got scrapped.

I stayed in and watched a bunch of episodes of Cold Case that I have on my DVR.

Today I'm going to work...12 hours of fun!

I quite enjoyed the evening even though I just stayed home. I made a nice dinner, had a couple glasses of white wine and watched The first season of Criminal Minds which I got on DVD for Christmas...Watched the Midnight count-down from Time Square, said Happy New Year's to the kitties and was asleep by 12:30....

I stayed home the last couple of NYE and to be honest it's quite nice. Last night me and a couple of friends shared a bottle of champagne, watched Elf on tv, watched the ball drop in NY, toasted in the new and then called it a night.

We had a wonderful evening, watched the movie 21, made steak & lobster for dinner, watched Walking Tall for the gazillionth time, actualy made it to midnight. Slept in this morning and had a nice brunch, thinking of taking a nap as this cold has me feeling pretty run down.

I didnt do anything special either....There was concert at my Church by a guy named Chris Commiso . He is a christian music singer. It was pretty good came home at a quarter to nine and just watched VH1's 100 best rock songs and fell asleep.

i couldnt have asked for more, me and mark went to a DC houseparty and i got to ring in the new year with all my dear friends who i love very much, everyone had to bring food and booze, and my one friend made a huge amount of butter and garlic chicken wings, so all night i was pacing myself with the vodka by eating some of those wings between drinks, and it worked out good, i wasnt hung over at all today and had a nice drive home

I ended up going to bed at about 9:30 and read in bed for about an hour. Then I woke up just before midnight, heard the firecrackers and rolled over and went back to sleep. I just don't have the energy I had when I was younger..

I did that today, along with some other cleaning. It beats fighting off a hangover, I reckon.

After I finished cleaning, I watched a Brady Bunch marathon - if you can believe that.

No that was too far away from the pub so we went to the one on Courtney Place - it actually closed at 4am but thankfully someone that worked there knew me, spotted me and let me in! I'll be forever grateful. I prefer the Cuba mall one though!!!

Of course Blanket Man was outside Burger King. Did you ever run into him?

Oh yeah, I know the one on Courtney Place!

I don't remember Blanket man but if I saw him, I might remember. I used to sit and watch people walking through Cuba Mall - I love the people in Wellington, they are so eclectic, and there is so much to see!

LOL! Nope, I never saw the guy. Thank goodness. I was living in Wellington 1998-1999 so I am not sure if he was around then?

Not sure. I was only a baby then (8-9) and never went into the city!
