Party peoples of the internet! What are you doing tonight?

Why hello there, Twilight Zone marathon.

So that's pretty much all I'll be doing today and tonight, and I am perfectly content with this. One New Year's Eve, I had to work the late shift at the video store; a couple of years later, I ended up being driven "home" to school by a bartender at 5:30 am, through (of all things, here in Alabama) a heavy snowfall, back to a dorm that was technically closed for the holidays so that my friends and I could sneak back in. This, after one friend spent the latter part of the evening throwing up into a party hat. I'm just saying--New Year's Eve at home: not such a bad thing.

(I will also be on the hunt for a new purse, as the handle on my old one, the frustratingly complicated and bepocketed Fendi spy bag knockoff, broke a while back. I want something a bit smaller, black, simple but cute--"stylish," if I can manage it. Oh, and inexpensive. I went to Etsy, got 20,000 search results, and ran away. Suggestions?)

I have absolutely no resolutions, by the way. I like the initial pep-talk excitement of making them, but they never, ever go anywhere. I mean, you've seen me do this before with self-imposed deadlines--I talk a good, rousing talk, and then nothing ever goes anywhere. I know this about myself: setting hard goals works for a lot of people, but it just does not personally work for me, probably because I psych myself out so easily. The only way I ever accomplish anything is by not trying and not expecting. "Follow your bliss," as the man said. So I know there are things I would like to do or improve within myself, but... the only way to do that is pretend they're not there, like a child playing peekaboo. Hey, whatever works.

P.S. There will be Woodchuck.

To bed early with my beautiful redheaded little boy and then champagne, snacks and bad TV with my hubby. Tomorrow we have two brunch parties and the weather is going to be in the 70s (hello, that's why we live in California).

I make resolutions every year and manage to keep a few. I resolved last year to get an agent for my novel so yay me! This year: more exercise, less coffee and get at least one short story published. Oh, and hopefully sell my novel though that's kind of out of my hands at this point.

I need a new bag too so I'm looking forward to seeing what people come up with.

Meant to say that I resolved to get an agent and actually got one. Lord, I should resolve to carefully read before posting.

I'm going to pick up my best friend, we're going to get some non alcoholic peach wine, marathon a TV show and play Mario wii games, as is our tradition! :D

I'm staying home and playing video games all day because it's like every other day in my life I'm not feeling well YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY WOOOOOOOOOOOOO PARTAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY.


I am sitting on my laptop (not literally, but ykwim). There isn't even anything decent on tv :(

In my parent's house, where we eat shrimp with cocktail sauce and watch the Times Square ball go down on TV. Apart from that it varies year by year, but the shrimp is the important bit. Mmmm, shrimp.

Oh, and apart from that I'm doing a massive amount of research. On the Holocaust. Not good times.

One of my friends is coming back specifically to spend NYE with me so she can be here for my birthday (Jan 1) and since we're not doing my birthday party till the 2nd we'll prolly watch gilmore girls and dance and drink in her apt.

my theory on Resolutions is that people make a set on new years, and then usually end up revising them on their birthday. And since mine are one in the same i can't be held to the same expectations so i don't make any. ... thats my story and i'm stickin to it :D

NYE at home can be ok, especially if you've had some wild ones in the past :D

How about just setting super easy goals? I did that last year just to feel accomplished, and it worked, lol.

I'll be at home with some friends and family, probably watching Disney movies and playing board games. It's very family-friendly of me, but I've been around for drunken parties, and they just aren't my thing. I suspect this is due in large part to the fact that I don't drink.

And I feel the exact same way about resolutions. I don't like to make them because, no matter how I plan, things always turn out different, and frequently better. I'll make goals if I need to, but they seem less serious than resolutions to me, for some reason. And I'm more likely to follow up on goals.

Happy New Year! (Well, in thirteen hours, locally.)

Practicing songs for me--my little sister's out at a party, so I can sing without her yelling at me. My Mum hates New Years, so we do sod-all. Maybe watch themed telly and drink champers.

(Deleted comment)
Sweet deal. I'll be having sparkling apple (Martinelli's) instead, but otherwise, pretty much the same.

I'm spending the day writing to make up for yesterday's lack of motivation. That is what my New Year's plans consists of--maybe a couple shots of sparkling cider since I am not a drinker. I'll realize it's 2010 at 12:30 tonight (or is tomorrow morning?) like I do every year.

I don't believe in New Year's resolutions. I don't mind setting goals and going to achieve them, but I think that if you try to tie it to a holiday, it's bound to go wrong. It's even worse if you have a whole lot of big goals.

I have a bad cold, so I'm staying in and maybe playing some computer games.

First I'm working concessions at a basketball game because my mother is in charge of these things and she doesn't have enough workers and then after that I'm working on getting my William & Mary application in since it's due tomorrow and for some stupid reason the Common App website has decided they'll do maintainence or whatever today. Gee, thanks . Fun times. I'll hold out for a fun New Year's until next year. :P Although I suppose my partying can happen tomorrow night as I have a friend driving from three hours away to spend the night tomorrow. She's decided we're either watching North and South or Jane Eyre, so it'll be a wild party! XD

Oh I LOVE North and South. I need to get my own copy of it.

New Year's Eve has a habit of traditionally being Teh Suck for me, beginning with the Millennium, where I watched the fireworks, and then spent the early hours of 2000 cleaning dog sick off the carpet. Nice.

Tonight I am staying in with my partner and the bunnies, and we will eat beef stew and maybe have a glass of wine, and I will continue to prepare myself for the SHEER AND UTTER HEARTBREAK that is going to be The End of Time: Part Two.

p.s. What is Woodchuck, plzkthx?

p.p.s Barley disapproves of New Year's Resolutions.

We are having a Star Wars Marathon. We've almost made it through the first three Episodes, we're saving the best for last.

Also, I kept thinking about M15M during Episode II.

Us too! But only the original trilogy since I refused to give informed consent to Attack of the Clones.
