Like many, I'm chuffed to be shot of '09, so here's hoping that 2010 turns out to be a happy, healthy and prosperous time for everyone. :)

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

It's 1am. The wife's gone to bed. I've got half a bottle of shochou, some oolong tea, a packet of dried squid and I'm wearing sunglasses, so hit it!

Where was the stangest place you've spent New Year?

I've had New Years in Amsterdam, Goa, Gili Trawangan, Japan (of course), the Sinai, Trafalger Square, Scotland.

You remember David Icke who used to be a footy commentator then flipped out, became all New Agey, started wearing turquoise and predicted the Isle of Aran would disappear into the sea by the end of the year? Well, because of him I went to the Isle of Aran for New Year. It didn't sink! Bizarre New Year though!

If anyone laughs at me for posting this I will regrettably have to kill them.

The WIERDEST place I ever spent New Year’s Eve was at a Scottish Highland Dancing Club. It was way back in 1972 and I had hair half way down my back. I was the only guy in the place not wearing a kilt and due to the hair ‘’style’’ was not being accepted as Real Man.

I only went as the girl who invited me was the catch of the Fifth year at school and I was in the Third Year :oops:

And yes I did get dragged into dancing The Gay Gordon’s :oops: :oops: :oops:

That’s sadly were it all went wrong as they took pity on me and awarded me a bottle of Scotch as a spot prize. The bottle was duly opened and an hour later I was a drunk as a newt! :lol: :lol:

Corrine was not in the least bit impressed with my behaviour and went home with a bloke in a tartan frock. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

I woke up (make that came round :oops: ) in the car park at 5am in the morning and had to stagger 4 miles to get home.

Kind of makes an evening with David Icke sound pretty good to me :roll:

Happy New Year.

The strangest place I've celebrated New Years is somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean. :wink:

Every New Year begins with hope and a hangover so that's my goal for what's left of the final hours of 2009, but fortunately it doesn't take that long for me to get smashed these days. :D

Hope surprisingly is easy this year considering the last few weeks, but there are pluses in there and I counting every one of 'em as I've found strength in there and support from my friends and family both off and online, old and new. So...

A Very Happy, Healthy and Heartfelt New Year to Everyone!

:lol:

My love and best wishes to all who are now nursing sore heads having already celebrated the coming of the New Year......
all who are partying their socks off as the New Year approaches....
all who are at home and quietly awaiting the New Year.....
and all who will be making whoopy long after I've gone to bed as THEIR New Year begins.
I wish that 2010 brings hope, health, happiness and love to you all.

Happy New Year everyone :D


I made it downstairs again :D Spent a couple of hours with the family playing on the Wii for a bit (sitting down of course!) and giggling lots at how bad we were :lol: Especially as my brain isn't the most reliable at doing what I ask it too! :wink: Then we saw the new year in with Jools Holland's Hootenanny :) There will probably be some extra roughness on top of the rough few days I've had since Christmas, but it was fun anyway :D


I haven't had the best of luck with New Years Eve if I'm honest. The last two times I went out on New Years Eve (2002 and 2003 I think), one I was back home and in my pj's by 11.30pm because I had Glandular Fever and the other I had a major attack of muscle twitches which wasn't fun, but at least I stayed out until after midnight that time :P

The strangest place I've probably spent New Years Eve is in bed, it was either last year or the year before that I spent most of the night in bed with a migraine and just saw people for a few minutes at midnight. So I think tonight qualifies as a success :P
Hah! I laugh in the face of danger... Then I hide until it goes away.
