Same as the last 2 years. In bed by 11 and may or may not be awake for midnight. Oh how kids change things.

Working NYE & NY Day open to close as they are two of the busiest days of the year. College playoff games Thursday will only make it busier. Make it while you can!

Pretty much what I do every year:
(a) at 4:00 (Pacific), listen to Big Ben chime 12 on BBC World Service (or maybe watch the live TV feed online if I can get it);
(b) watch Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin on CNN - actually, live coverage of the ball drop to the western USA is a relatively new thing; before then, it was about a fifty-fifty shot as to whether or not CNN would show it live, and when it did, it was only the last 20-30 seconds or so;
(c) watch a local station show the midnight fireworks in San Francisco - they used to include Seattle, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas as well (midnight was always at Seattle's Space Needle);
(d) wait for some kids to shoot off firecrackers right after midnight, then turn on the police scanner to see if anybody is responding.

I worked in a bar 4 NYE's in a row. I'm
too terrified to leave the house on that
night now. It's called 'amateur night' for
a reason.

Relax at home flipping the channels - possibly go to bed prior to midnight - but then I will be woken up by fireworks and my dog's reaction thereto.

yup. between the potential for crappy weather here and the idiot factor, it's a great night to relax in comfort of home.

We are heading out tomorrow afternoon to Lincoln City, Oregon where we'll be until Saturday, watching football, gambling at Chinook winds casino, and sight seeing.

I wonder if the Mummer's parade out of Philly is broadcast live on national TV?

Saw it once, in Philly: wow!

Fralinger rocks!
