Just when I thought that it was safe to be cynical, I read your inspiring recipe. Thanks. Happy New Year!

Cheers to all!

Wait, don't take my New Year's cynicism from me! tongue.gif

Actually I don't find myself being cynical, probably because I never expected this world to be much more than it is. Even Jesus said the poor will be with you always. Perfection isn't for this world and human nature doesn't change. So, while the crimes and misdemeanors may change, the amount of events that provoke cynicism or inspire hope remain unaltered.

I find New Year's Eve to be poignant, I always have, even as a child. There is such a sad quality to the night, something I?ve never quite put my finger on. A leaving behind perhaps? A knowing things will never again be the same? The fear of leaving the familiar?

Whatever it is, it has always left me with a sense of sad poignancy.

Waxing poetic in this pre-dawn hour.

I know that it almost amounts to heresy in these parts but I'm not staying up for the bells at Hogmanay.I have to work for the next 4 days (12.5 hour shift) which means I have to get up at 5 am. sad.gif
The old bones just can't take that amount of abuse on top of a late night. rolleyes.gif
The hospitals here are always busy at that time of year so I'll need all the sleep that I can get!!

Going to bed BEFORE THE BELLS? unsure.gif And do you really think your family will let you sleep? biggrin.gif

I remember Hogmanay at A&E in RIE (don't ask, long story!).... FRIGHTENING! They kept mattresses out in a storeroom because they always run out of trolleys, or so the doctor I was dating told me.....!

You do a vital job, for very little thanks, Jules. So please accept mine - and I am sure you will not take it amiss when I say I hope I don't need to call on your services, any time soon!

There is a new bubbly out this year that comes from Nappa Valley and comes in a blue bottle and has a blue gum ball in the bottom of it.
Celebrate 2004!

I have never thought of it as a sense of loss, but I think that this is part of my cynicism. Much of my disdain for the day comes my own mortality. As I grow older, NYE becomes more of a "couples" holiday. As a single person, the evening becomes less attractive.

Oddly enough, last year, I was in a serious relationship at New Years. However, I caught a cold a few days after Christmas. I ended up spending NYE at home sick. (Alone, I might add).

Happy New Year everyone. Pardon my Grinchiness.

Wait! On second thought, I just received an invitation to a party! I'm going.

Elspeth,

I know what you are talking about. I also felt that way for a rather long time. Not in the way of loss directly but in the sense that something's going to be over irretrievably.

Now I'm thinking different. It's no longer an end but a new beginning; the moment to say "yes" to the fact that another year filled with life is waiting for me - and I'm curious how it will be and ready to live it - each single day!

New Year's Eve has never met any of the great expectations that folks seem to have.Too many fools out tempting fate just for the hell of it.
I think himself and I will just stay home with a nice bottle of something, and wait for Guy Lombardo to come o TV.

New Year's Day always seems to be the longest, dullest , darkest day of the year because my family is always holed inside in front of the television. This year will be no exception with USC in the Rose Bowl. I will be continuing my one real New Year's tradition: taking down the holiday tree.
sigh...

Living in Manhattan there is no way you would catch me even close to Times Square, or watching Dick Clark on TV. The Upper East Side is known to be home to a few Irish bars, and by a few I mean a lot! I think me and my sweetie will fight our way into our favorite pub on the early side and come home to toast the New Year together, and alone. I'll be travelin' in the morn and I'd rather do it feeling human than hungover. Cheers!

A party!

How exciting!

We haven't done parties on NYE since BC (before children). Yes, it's fun to spend NYE with them, but then I spend every day with them. Being free enough to go to a party sounds like a lot of fun to me. (pardon the grinchiness of a stuck in the house mother)

Have a good time single speed and drink one for me.

Jules,
I'll be in my hospital, doing my 12.5, and thinking of you doing your 12.5! I will actually be at work on New Years Eve, since I work nights. I only have to work 3 in a row, though. Got some of the non-exploding crackers to share with the other nurses and the patients. Wheee! What a party! laugh.gif
