    Anyone else spending New Year's Eve home alone and not waking up with a hangover in 2012?

      Hi, I just did! well, not exactly alone, just with a friend, but still it was pretty boring! I love going out, so I was a bit disappointed this year with everybody else doing there own thing, but I sat and drank a small bottle of Champagne so it dulled the boredom! have a great night even if you are alone, get out the drink and put your feet up!

        Looks like Fix News will be playing some music and reviewing Year 2011. So it will probably be that and this. big_smile

            I am alone, but not lonely. I'm glad to hear that 2012 is not a myth. I was worried about that. big_smile

    I stayed in this new year too! I spent Hogmanay painting the basement walls, went upstairs for the Bells - live on TV from somewhere in Madrid - mumbled Happy New Year to him (no kisses or cuddles, but who cares), and went back to work.

    Exciting stuff, eh? No hangover for me tomorrow, but hey I am stiff and sore from all the bending exercise I got from painting!

      Hey, IzzyM! smile

      When I replied to Nell's post, you post wasn't there. I come back  and there is your post between Nell's and mine. There are apparently overseas time delays, but not for all overseas. I find that interesting.

      I also like the home alone thing today. I am regrouping for the new year.

    I'm home alone and working, as I have a huge translation project to complete by January 25, which I started two days ago. It will mean little time for anything else, but will bring in more than two months' worth of average income.

    I always hated going out for New Year when I was forced to do so by partners in the past. I don't see any particular significance in the number on the calendar changing!

      I could certainly use a project or two... smile

        After 10+ years, I am still amazed at how the market for medical translation never dries up. I started doing it as a sideline for a bit of extra cash, never expecting it would one day become my primary source of income.

    I am not alone!  and I would never admit it if I was!  ME? alone on New Year's Eve?  no no no!  I'm surrounded by loving friends and family we're eating marvelous food and some are drinking (although even in my lies I can't say I'm drinking, for some weird reason) - oh, who am I kidding?  I seem to have plenty of time to roam around on the net looking for some kind of fun.  any weirdness, any weirdness at all would be nice! lol

    A repost:

    Go placidly amidst the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.

    Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

    Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

    Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism.

    Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.

    Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

    Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.

    And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul. With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful.

    Strive to be happy.

    I wonder if the last poster of Year 2011 (HP time) wins a prize...

    And likewise the first poster of Year 2012.

    It wont be me for either, I'll be sound asleep. Unless all the gunshots wake me up.

    I think the last time I went out to celebrate the new year was around 1980.  I would have been eight at the time, and my dad, who was wearing his kilt threw up in the taxi on the way home, which my mom had to clean up, and give the taxi driver a huge tip.  For some reason, I have never been attracted to the celebrations of New Year's Eve since.
