Staying home for New Year's is sounding more and more appealing to me.
@squinky the One Time i had a good new years was the first year I was in seattle, I went to a random bar to, uh, watch the space needle? and I ended up making some friends. we went to their apartment at around 1am to play super smash brothers, then went to a chinese resturant at 4 or so that was still open, by the time we left the busses were running again. I gave them my number but I never heard from em again. boo
@squinky I've spent the past fifteen years pointedly not going to new years parties and sitting in and watching tat/playing games instead and can totally recommend it.
The fifteen or so years of parties before that, I can't think of one I really enjoyed or wanted to be there for. Every single one sucked for different reasons.
