Default New Years Eve Zzzzz

I find New Years Eve to always be a bore and a chore. I'm one of those poeple who stays in, eats too much, drinks too much and then goes to bed at 12.01am.

However this year I am going to try my best to actually try and do something special for this anti-climactic occasion. I will be in Britain at the time, me and the US OH did the Edinburgh Hogmany thing back in 2003 (which was okay), so what else is there to do?

What are your plans for New Years Eve?

To get completely wankered, hug lots of people I don't really know, be insincere, loud and over bearing, embarrass the wife and have no recollection the next day. I don't see why this year should be different because we're in a foreign country. Only difference will be that I will have to drink four times as much to compensate for the waz like beer.

We haven't done a damn thing the last two years, but call it an early night. This year we're going for a swanky steak dinner. My wife and I actually met new years 2000/01 in Vegas.

Ahem. That'll be Patrick, his lovely wife, me and Mr. NC Penguin. I did enjoy the party you took me to with all your interesting neighbors, though the pervert did give me the creeps.

I have had lunch with NCP many times, she is a teddy bear in real life, not half as frieghtening as she appears here - this is forum must be the outlet for her pent up aggression!

I am hoping when she said "the pervert gave me the creeps" she wasnt talking about me!

Boxing day is leegndary.
All day in the boozder with your mates watching footie and racing and playing pool.
I've been over here for the last 2 but I'll be home this time round. Have been getting myself in training by having at least 3 beers a night to get ready.
5 months of drinking bud light seems to have lowered my alcohol tolerance considerably

Our New Year was very romantic last year. I had a bout of the runs just as the 2005 ball was dropping in Time Square (on TV)...kissed hubby to the new year tune, then ran to the bathroom!

Same here. We just got invited to one of our city's elected official's New Years Party, so I'll have the perfect stage for my antics!

Cheers!
