Staying home, so there will be no driving late at night on roads with other tired people driving after too much drinking. My usual practice is to celebrate in a few timezones ahead of me, so I can ring in the New Year (somewhere) but still get to bed at a reasonable hour.

Having an evening at home. Can't say it's a quiet evening though the bar down the street has had a constant barrage of fireworks for the last 90 minutes.

Sue J,
Sorry to hear about your dad.

Someone here gave me the idea of taking DW out to a Mexican place. She likes it better than I do but it's close and you avoid most drunks. When I offered that she said how about sushi?

She's not a big sushi lover, I am. I think she just did that to make me happy. Off to snack on an extra roll she bought. Now I've got to do something she'll like better.

We're passing on our party invite at friends nearby - 15 degrees. Surfing the net for tomorrows fried cabbage, blackeyed peas, and pork dinner plus football(guys) and Scrabble(gals).

Had lunch at the art museum(Nelson) after the Plains Indians and Modern Art exhibits with other friends.

heh heh heh - NOW had tonight been back in the old days before Katrina I would be arranging my fireworks on my 120' run(pier for northerners) ready to outdo my neighbors and their fireworks.

Just got home from First Night festivities and watching the tv waiting for the ball drop. Taylor Swift is on right now, she must be freezing her cute little butt off with that skimpy outfit in 29F weather in Times Square that feels like 14F. Ah.... to be young.

The cats seem particularly rambunctious tonight.

Listening to the Capitol Steps Year End Review on NPR. The explosions outside are starting and it's only 9:00 so it will escalate up to midnight! The neighbors must have saved fireworks from the 4th.

Thinking back on all the NYE parties I've attended over the years and just enjoying staying home and enjoying the relative quiet.

Happy New Year to all and to a prosperous 2015!

I'm glad I wasn't the only one! I fell asleep on the couch at 9:00 pm last night (2014) and woke up at 1:30 am today (2015). Apparently 2015 managed to arrive without any active participation from me - what a relief!
