    New Year's Eve Plans?

    So who's partying this year, and who is staying home?

    Mrs. Tranplanner and I are going out with friends for a nice dinner, then back to their place to ring in the New Year.

    You know me: a total bore. Like last year, I am likely to be online and intermittently checking in on Cyburbia, useless as that is when other folks have actual lives and are out partying.

    Uh.. parties? what's that?
    This year I'll probably be here in my house with my extended family. Great variation to the yearly routine of going to my aunt's house
    At least now if I get bored I can come here and lurk with other lonely cyburbians that will have to wait longer than I to enter the new year.. although thinking about that JNL is already in the new year... It's 4 am there.. I bet she's already hung over

    Heh.. Sorry MZ I doubt I'll be here when you enter the new year.. since it'd be like 5 am here...

    New Year's Eve was always *hit or miss* with too much stress to have a good time.
    Now, I see it as *Amateur Night* and a good reason to stay home with the missus and enjoy a quiet night. Dang, I'm old...

    I agree and I think that's what I wrote here last year....but I'm too lazy to search the threats.

    My plans:

    1. Get drunk
    2. Fall down
    3. ????
    4. Profit

    Ok, actually I think I'm going to a yuppie all you can eat/drink type of party at a downtown hotel (which means I can walk, er, stumble home).

    No plans. A relationship that started out promisingly fizzled, and only five months into living in a new city, I still don't know many people here. I will likely check in with Cyburbia if I stay awake until midnight.
    Anyone want to adopt a dog?

    I'm carpooling with the SO to Madison. We're getting together with a bunch of my college friends (I have spent 14 of the last 16 NYE's doing this). We'll do holiday and birthday gift exchanges, have a nice buffet, then cocktail and play parlor games into the new year. We always stay over night, as they have a huge 5 bedroom house and no kids!

    Prudence and his SO are going to be stopping by, since he lives about 2 blocks away from them and got to know them years ago at one of my BBQs.

    ...and not to come empty handed I am making a veggie strata using Downtown's recipe!

    It's unusually warm here (60F). We are lighting a fire outside and having campfire food with friends and their kids. I'm sure the festivities will end before midnight.

    Our neighbor will mark the beginnng of 2005 with one of his train horns.

    If I was in CO, Cardinal, I would take you out for a beer....

    ...or you could party with some college friends of mine if you want. I know some nice girls....
    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone

    If I'm not looking at porn somewhere else, I'll be doing the same.

    My wife and I will be drinking heavily while playing board games with my older daughter while the youngest sleeps. Responsible parenting at its best. Wife should be home soon with the tequila.

    After not having a bar in town for the last year, one opened up a month or so ago. Since I am the City Admin, I feel it is my job to support this badly needed business. I will be working very hard at this duty this evening.

    Maybe I should be buying you the beer! Hey, isn't it time for a Colorado Laefest? There has not been one here since the APA was in Denver, and I missed that one.

    We're having a Harry Potter marathon while keeeping the kid from next door ("Fatboy") so his parents can have a modicum of real life for a bit. I had to take a break to check on Cyb tonite.

    We normally go to a nearby friend's for a NY party, but she didn't have it this year. Nonetheless, I'm having my cocktails...

    Actually I was fast asleep (on a fold-out sofabed in the lounge of this wicked kinda art deco beach house)... started drinking with my friends at 6pm and by the time it got to 11pm we were struggling to stay awake! Made it to midnight, listened to a countdown on the radio, watched the fireworks that were let off by neighbours, and then fell asleep! Must be getting old!

    Plenty of wine consumed, but no hangover, yay

    A friend had her 30th bday party the night before (the 30th)... BiteMeElmo was STILL too hung over from that party to make it out on NYE. So we sat at home and watched movies (Troy... bleh).

    I went to the Domestic Problems concert in Grand Rapids. I was the DD so I only had two beers the whole night. But I still had a great time.

    I stayed at home with my sweetie. I made shirmp scampi, steak with a red wine reduction sauce and wild mushrooms, and risotto. Picked a nice red wine to go with it.

    We watched the Dick Clark Rockin' New Year with Regis Phibin.
