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.
i know it can be a lonely time, so take care, soon be 2012! strange that it is over here already!
I did last night twas New Years Eve in Aussie Land...was home alone and it was also my birthday.....
Happy birthday and Happy New Year BP!
I've just woken up on Jan 1st, the night before spent drinking Earl Grey with a little lemon in it and eating choco bikkies. Perfect!!!
i never.I like waking up early 1st of every year. Happy new year to one and all in this world.
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!
Hi, Izzy, seems like a lot of us are doing different things, at this moment I am watching Rio celebrate! wish I was there, lovely and warm!
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...
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.
Well my family is here and we are watching old reruns on tv. We are watching the old Star Trek right now. I am sort of boring, like my hubs
It's my guess that you are probably set for life.
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!
I can't believe all the scraps going on in the other forums as we speak.
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.
New Year's Day: Now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual.
I'm chillin out with my grandson watching Ghostbuster's II. Thank God I don't have to worry about a hangover............
13 years sobriety!!!!!
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.
Happy days! daze. so yeah, I made peanut/cashew cookies! the sun is shining. I bet I can't think of anything to say for the rest of the day!
give me some new year, NOW!!
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.
Belated Happy B beautiful!!
and Happy New Year to everyone!!

Should you allowed children under 12 years old to walk home alone from school?Are we moving forward, when it comes to crime, or are we moving backward?

Just realised I hit the 2,000,000 viewings on my hubs some time between New Year's Eve and the early hours of New Year's Day (here in Britain). Really delighted as it has only been about 10 months since I hit 1,000,000.

At what age would you leave your child home alone?I was reading an article on a well known parenting site that talked about children at home alone answering the door and the age range in the was much, much lower than I would ever consider. I'm curious what your thoughts are on when a child...
