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!
