did you ring in the New Year?
I was home alone. I had Jay Leno on the TV, but I missed the ball coming down in Times Square because I had stepped away to check my email and lost track of the time. I realized it was midnight when I heard firecrackers in the neighborhood.
I throw a New Year's Eve Party. I started with the parties because I always
found that the event never meets your expectations. There is all this
false hype around it and I always felt depressed by the whole thing. So
we would have some people over and have a party. This year I did not have
the party because I had a liptripsy on my kidney the day before.(I have
kidney stones and what the doctors do is blast your kidney with sound
waves in hopes of shattering the stones into small pieces so you can pass
them a bit easier. HA Ha! It hurts like hell!). So I decided not to have
the party. My kids who are 15 & 17 freaked out. All their lives we
have had a
Shot off fireworks, then went to bed.
Had a drink at a friend's house, then went out to dinner, then came home and read in bed till midnight.
Stayed home to avoid all the amateur drunk drivers up past their bed time. Watched 2 Spike Lee movies (Summer of Sam and 25th Hour).
Very low-key party at my place. Quickly switched on the tube so all the folks could watch the ball drop and toast with champagne. Post midnight was a bit more exciting : )
With good friends and good champagne. Is there any other way?
I went to bed at 10 and let the New Year arrive without me. On January 1, 2004, I was gifted with a magnificent sunrise.
My husband and I were at Felicia's house at midnight.
I was doing some schoolwork, I didn't realise it had gone midnight until the fireworks ruined the peace. I detest New Year's Eve.
We played games, watched movies, ate cheese and crackers, and kissed.
At The Landmark. First year ever that I got to kiss someone (that I loved) on New Years'
heh, I rang in the new year with Australian friends on the internet at about 9:30 am EST
