Wooo Hooo 2007 Pow Pow Pow

New Year's Eve is not something we go out for. We can pay a lot less for the same bands on practically any other night of the year... and skip the hype, the buffet we can't eat, and the champagne at midnight that you have to wait an hour in a line for. Besides there are probably 10 times the drunks out there on the road, and the normal drunks are likely to be even drunker. Yeehaw!

For several years we just get a stack of videos, some good snacky food that is sure to leave you with a tummy-ache (this year it was falafel and veggie chips), some bargain sparkling wine and some orange juice in case we want Mimosas. The fireworks in the neighborhood started around 5:00 PM, and they weren't that disturbing at 5:00 PM, but they are constant until around 1:00 AM which puts most of the cats in a state of freakout. They are pretty good fireworks too, and I can't swear that some of isn't gunfire. (good grief!) So... everybody stays up past midnight whether they want to or not. It's not a choice. We watched "Slither" again, this time with all the extras from the DVD. I love that one, pretty funny, pretty gross, Nathan Fillion, Gregg Henry, Elizabeth Banks.

What did you do for New Year's Eve?

We had our own unique evening. Me consuming a lot of tea and DayQuil to get over my cold, and, following our computer-massacre, The JohnnyB researching for a new laptop and/or parts for the deceased one.
But, to make things more cheerful, we got tickets for a vacation on a warm island a month from now. Frequent Flyer miles can be a wonderful thing...

We did raise a glass of champagne-thingy, with NyQuil for dessert.

Colds suck! Warm islands do not. Hope the cold is all better by then.
