Well, its just bollocks, isn't it?

I may be a bit young to be a miserable old git, but youngsters get grumpy too, damnit.

You almost always end up doing something or going somewhere you don't really wanna go to please other people. When you get there, you're having a miserable time, talking to people you don't even like and looking for a way out of every conversation. You want to leave-but you can't. You have to stay at least until 12.05am purely out of politeness.

So, you decide to make the most of it. You at least pretend you're having a good time, for everyone else's benefit. Even though they're all pretending too. Because there's always one annoying person in the building who believes if people aren't having the time of their fucking lives then there's something very wrong; "We're not having enough fun! Why aren't we having more fun? We should be having more fun. According to the manual, the Funometer should at least be on 80 by now, but its only on 62. What can we do to make it go higher? MORE FUN!!"

And then the "BIG HOUR" approaches. Everyone decides to go outside. Why? Why are you going outside, you cretin? What are you expecting to happen? What are you expecting to see? NOTHING! All you experience is cold and false joy. False fucking joy. "HOORAY! HUZZAH! We now write the date with a '10' on the end rather than an '09'...and because of this all my fucking problems are solved." Except that they're not. You're still on the brink of divorce, you're 15-year-old daughter is still pregnant and you're cat is still dead.

Then people try and spread that fucking joy onto you, even though you don't want it.

"All the best."

"For what?"

"For, you know, the new year"

"Why?"

"Just because..."

"Thats not a reason, thats saying two words and then not finishing the sentence".

"Aren't you gonna wish me a Happy New Year?"

"No."

"Why?"

"Firstly, because we're essentially celebrating the fact that its now tomorrow. Secondly, because I hardly know you, but the little I've learned about you, you seem like the kind of false twat that makes me pray for the apocolypse to hurry the fuck up. By the way, did you see how that was a fully rounded answer and not just the beginning of a sentence that is never actually concluded?"

So, then, when the guy has finished smashing your face in, you stumble home...realise you had to drink yourself to death to get through the awful night and vomit all over your front step. Finally you wake up in the morning feeling like the Somme.

And thats why New Years Eve is bollocks and why I'm going to stay in and get some work done out of fucking protest.

Thank you. New Years and St. Patrick's Day are the two days a year to stay out of our local pub. New Years because of all the plastered ninnies that start drinking way too early, toast champagne at midnight and then vomit it all up at ten minutes after the hour. And St. Patty's for all of the "first time Irish" looking for green beer, who end up behaving in much the same fashion.

Naturally of course, all of these twits believe that they are sober enough to drive. :duh:

I like New Years Eve. I stay home, make myself a dirty vodka martini, get shrimp, guacamole & chips, brie in pastry and have my own little party watching a great movie I missed in the theatres. I MIGHT watch the stupid ball drop, but I enjoyed that most when my old TV station ran the local one along side of Times Square and they could never sync them up! Good for lotsa laughs.

Sometimes people come over for this sometimes they don't.

They on New Year's Day we ALWAYS had people over for a Pork and Sauerkraut dinner with sour cream mashed potatoes, asparagus, fresh baked rolls and apple pie. Football on all day, it was a great time.

I was so disappointed to find out otherwise. Fuck, I rarely drink, but I'd love to get plastered and watch something like that from a safe vantage point.

A very lengthy but very true post.

Hear, hear!

When I was a young'in, I used to force myself to "enjoy" new year's parties because I was afraid I'd miss something.

Somehow, I never did. Would. Whatever.

Today, I just came home from my second job, working at a Japanese restaurant. Started yesterday.

Some clients celebrated there, eating all that sushi, teppan yaki, and whatnot.

Smart of them, and saved me the trouble to go to a party. Most of my good friends are working anyway.

As I write this, everybody's outside shouting for some reason. Fuck me if I know why.

Cheers! :bottle:

You should see how things are progressing here in the Land Of Nod. It's currently about 8:45 PM, and for the past two hours people have been setting off fireworks. About every 10 minutes or so, the sound of sirens fills the air as a police car, ambulance or firetruck takes to the streets to handle some awful issue.

Comcast cable has had a city-wide failure that has lasted most of the afternoon, so everyone that threw football parties are at this point not only drunk, but furious as well. I was invited to one of these deals by the owners of the house on the corner southwest of me, but I decided to decline. These kids are in their early to mid twenties, and what takes place is highly predictable. Inane conversation will progressively get louder and louder until around midnight, when someone will (intentionally or not) insult somebody else's girlfriend. A fight will break out, and the inconsolable young woman will launch into uncontrollable sobs and tears. Soon after, she'll begin screaming and after much drama, the party will slide out of control completely.

Fuck this. I believe I'll sit things out by watching some football (now that the cable is back on) or that Twilight Zone marathon running on the SyFy channel.

Cheers, indeed. :guzzle:

'09 was one of those years you have to endure, as opposed to just party through and have a good time.
It's like the world collectively pulled the emergency brake on the good times and veered from the roadkill in the fucking road. This was a disastrous and horrific year, and I'll raise my glass and toast to the fact that it's fucking GONE!

2009....a fucked-up year in American history, and just an all-around dark fuck of a year.

Come to think of it....it was the best of times and the worst of times;)

Got divorced after 2 years of a pure hell separation. Walked away from everything just to shut the bitch up. Kept all my musical stuff and my outdoor gear.

Moved to Colorado with my clothes, Jeep and a Laptop.....After my cousin caught her hubby cheating on her she divorced him and left Colorado. I moved to Manitou Springs on the day she felt and didn't know a soul here.

Fast forward to now....8 of my neighbors and I hang out all the time. Best people I have met in a long time. We party, jam, rock climb, mountain bike, fish, hike, camp and BBQ constantly.

So what could of been a long and lonely year really turned into one of the best.

Well, happy New Year to everyone on the East Coast!

Here is what I fucking hate about New Year's these days.

DirecTV (at least) moves the fucking New Years countdown so that the ALL of the New Year's eve countdowns on whatever channel they are on occur at Midnight. Doesn't make sense?

I always dug watching the Times Square thing on TV. Even though midnight EST was only 11 PM CST. I hate watching a New Years Countdown that is not live.

It is as if they are lying to everyone. No, DICK CLARK MUMBLED THE FUCKING COUNTDOWN 16 FUCKING MINUTES AGO AT 11PM CST, BUT THEY ARE NOT GOING TO SHOW IT HAPPENING FOR ANOTHER 44 MINUTES! :mad:

The Dick Clark's New Year's Rocking Eve already happened. I want to see that show LIVE.
They ought to choose a major city in each time zone and broadcast a New Year's Eve countdown program for that particular time zone. At least it would be live then.

But no, the viewership has no say in the matter. Oh well.

Here's to the continued stupidity of the program directors of the networks who decided to do this crap.

Boy I second that. 5 years post divorce, I take what I think is a better job out of state. Get laid off six months later and had to sell my house to keep from going bankrupt. ( at least I sold it!) Living with friends. Have to place 3 of my dogs because I can't take care of them anymore. Then I pretty much lose my mind. Last week, my 15 year old van gave up the ghost. Very humbling, if not kneecapping, year.

While all of this is going on, my friend decides one of my Irish Setters has "it" and should be shown in the big leagues. She pays for all of it - and the dog rockets to the top - ending up in the top of the rankings in spite of only showing 9 months of the year. Once in a lifetime, dreams come true, all that stuff.

So 2010 will be about putting the personal side of life back together. Starting with taking a few classes, and a job search for something I can do without killing myself. And the dog will continue kicking ass and taking names.

Yes 2009, you SUCKED in a huge way. And in smaller ways, did not. I am not sorry to see you go.

Yeah, it has the SECOND radiator in one year, now needs brakes and stopped producing heat. Just don't know if it's worth dumping any more money in it. And somebody has lent me a car.

Back on track for the thread - I actually woke up for midnight - had the basketball game going on TNT (what the hell) and the sportscasters did some kind of ball drop that got screwed up - noisy enough it woke me up enough to say "Happy New year" to the dogs and go back to sleep.

probably the heater core, and on a van i'm sure that's a real treat to fix. i gave up on one i was trying to replace, by then i had the Jeep and didn't really care if i got it done or not.

didn't know there was a game on or i probably would have watched it. around midnight i backed the car out of the bubble and let it run for 15 minutes...and put it right back.

not a bad night. The weather cleared and I was able to see the Blue moon. A once in a 19 year event, which happened on New Years Eve at the fall of the decade. I pulled in my parking spot at home as all the firecrackers were going off. I was like, well it must be midnight and the new year. I am thrilled to been able to be share the Blue moonlight, but it was the people that were the most interesting this year's new years eve. The stark contrasts was a little enlightening.
Happy New year!

I got ripped last night. Bought a 2-liter of Dr. Pepper. Far cry from my days as a 20-year-old drunk.

I have pretty much done the same thing on New Years for the last 35 years. Ski New Year's eve. Sit in the hot tub. Hit the bars and participate in debauchery. Before I was married I chased ass hoping to take it home or go to her home. Sleep the next day hopefully not up with dry heaves and puking.

Times Square looks more like Red Square or Tianamen Square these days. Who wants to party around snipers, riot police, secret police, and homeland security?

this.

the same assholes maybe go out three times a year (NYE, St. Pat's, and their birthday) and can't handle their alcohol. i'm staying home tonight. or maybe i'll stay home and not drink, and go out driving at 1:15 am and troll some cops.


I hate the part time amateur drinkers too. The worst one here is the Friday before Xmas with all the drunk idiots in suits.

As far as New Year goes to be honest it's usually a bit of an anticlimax. In Scotland it's a really big thing, historically Xmas didn't used to be a holiday but New Year was. To this day we get 2 public holidays on the 1st and 2nd to recover. :)

I can understand where Shaun is coming from. I spent one New Year in England in a place called Bracknell and it was horrendous.

All that said we had a fucking great party here this year at my house with 40 of my closest pals and their kids.

I think it's taken literally 20 years to work out how to deal with this night of the year we finally got it just right.

Cheers!

Yeah my pal went there a couple of years ago and said it was a total fucking misery.

Repeated searches and no booze.

Another total win for Al Queda and fuckwit bureaucrats.

Why not just drape a fucking 1000 foot banner from the Empire State Building saying 'You Win! We give in.'

It's a disgrace...

I went to Times Square in 1981 and it was a real scummy sleaze fest. It was interesting then. I was a minor and they sold me porn no problemo. It was a kid's paradise! Now they have MTV, McDonald's, and corporate this and that and smothering security and rules. No fun.

This thread was a interesting read. I review 2009, and I am glad it's 2010. I haven't been out to celebrate a New Years Eve in prolly 15 years or MORE. There is nothing magical about another year passing, nothing poignant. I just hope 2010 is a lot less dysfunctional than the last year.

Letssee, what did I do for New Years?

Had an early dinner about 6 at El Torito, got in fulla mexican food then crashed out till the fireworks woke us up. So we got up and played cards.

I think we turned the TV on once, but only to check that Dick Clark was still alive.. however this year is going to be a nonstopper on up to next new years' so I'm relishing the quiet stuff right now.

I think 2009 was brutal for everyone, me included. It was just a suckass year all around. If this economy ever gets going again and people get back to work and have plenty of extra money in their pockets to spend then 2010 could be a much different story.

Oh, crap...here it comes. Duck under the furniture.

yeah, same here.
people here were fucking shoot all manner of guns into the air at midnight on the dot.

my girlfriend and i were out on my patio, as soon as i heard the first shot,
i grabbed her and told her to get in the fucking house and lay down on the
floor and i was right by her.
i don't have anything to hide under other than my roof.
turns out to be a good thing too, because i heard a few or the bullets hitting the roof.
we were out to see the blue moon and have a glass of champaign.....
but left the bottle in the freezer too long.
so beer it was instead.
drank the champaign last night though.
under the blue moon, and without the bullets flying.

i hate that aspect of new years.

i don't know why these idiots here in the inland empire think it's cool to shoot into the air.

they seem to have either forgotten or never learned sir isaac newton's 1st
law of gravity..........
"what goes up must come down"

well, those bullets coming down can do some damage and can kill.

mythbusters proved this possible.

2009 was actually a good year for me. 2010 even started out good. Able to spend time with my long-distance love, heading off to the mountains on NY day. Only to get a call in the middle of the night that my girlfriends brother had been found dead... If this is any indication as to the type of year it will be - it's going to be a roller coaster....

Well, its just bollocks, isn't it?

I may be a bit young to be a miserable old git, but youngsters get grumpy too, damnit.

You almost always end up doing something or going somewhere you don't really wanna go to please other people. When you get there, you're having a miserable time, talking to people you don't even like and looking for a way out of every conversation. You want to leave-but you can't. You have to stay at least until 12.05am purely out of politeness.

So, you decide to make the most of it. You at least pretend you're having a good time, for everyone else's benefit. Even though they're all pretending too. Because there's always one annoying person in the building who believes if people aren't having the time of their fucking lives then there's something very wrong; "We're not having enough fun! Why aren't we having more fun? We should be having more fun. According to the manual, the Funometer should at least be on 80 by now, but its only on 62. What can we do to make it go higher? MORE FUN!!"

And then the "BIG HOUR" approaches. Everyone decides to go outside. Why? Why are you going outside, you cretin? What are you expecting to happen? What are you expecting to see? NOTHING! All you experience is cold and false joy. False fucking joy. "HOORAY! HUZZAH! We now write the date with a '10' on the end rather than an '09'...and because of this all my fucking problems are solved." Except that they're not. You're still on the brink of divorce, you're 15-year-old daughter is still pregnant and you're cat is still dead.

Then people try and spread that fucking joy onto you, even though you don't want it.

"All the best."

"For what?"

"For, you know, the new year"

"Why?"

"Just because..."

"Thats not a reason, thats saying two words and then not finishing the sentence".

"Aren't you gonna wish me a Happy New Year?"

"No."

"Why?"

"Firstly, because we're essentially celebrating the fact that its now tomorrow. Secondly, because I hardly know you, but the little I've learned about you, you seem like the kind of false twat that makes me pray for the apocolypse to hurry the fuck up. By the way, did you see how that was a fully rounded answer and not just the beginning of a sentence that is never actually concluded?"

So, then, when the guy has finished smashing your face in, you stumble home...realise you had to drink yourself to death to get through the awful night and vomit all over your front step. Finally you wake up in the morning feeling like the Somme.

And thats why New Years Eve is bollocks and why I'm going to stay in and get some work done out of fucking protest.


Agreed 100%...


























...but have a Happy New Year anyway!;)
