1st Day of 2009

Besides watching fireworks of course.



So, what are your plans?

Re: What are you going to do on New Years?

I plan to avoid other people. Listen to music, read a book, write a book, jerk off, dick around on the internet, play guitar, go to bed early, tidy my bedroom, evaluate my existence. Who knows? The options are endless

It's highly unlikely I'll be going to a crowded bar or nightclub that has hiked its prices for the night to listen to endless numbers of morons utter the world's most banal comment to each other (and worse, to me) like it means a thing.

Re: What are you going to do on New Years?

We are going to a party the place next to our ranch. Then doing fireworks at our ranch, should be very fun with everyone there.

Most likely sleep through it, once you seen one fireworks display in Sydney Harbour you have seen them all.

I'll be trying to comfort my scared sh!tless dog, telling her I'll protect her from the fireworks. Before that, I'll be working. New Years means nothing to me, sorry to be a killjoy

I love that we're in this financial crisis, but we can spend $5million on fireworks. [Yes I know $5million might not be much to some people, but so much could be done with it...and it's effects could last longer than half an hour. I'm getting old.].

And yet the organisers keep promising us all that this year's display will be different to the last 10 years. I've heard that one before

This sounds pretty much like me. I actually think last year I was sitting here on the internet and didn't realise the clock had ticked over. New Years means nothing to me and I've never actually ever done anything to celebrate it.

Tomorrow night I'm spending with 2 of my cousins. We are going to make tacos and have a quiet DVD night with a few glasses of wine

I'm doing what I'm always doing. Studying and trying to pursue my schedule. I'm not a big fan of New Year's Eve with all the environmental pollution.
