I realized I have never been "out" to a New Years Eve party! (at least not that I recall.)
By "out", I mean a big shin-dig New Years "Ball" thingy at a club or banquet hall or bar.
I've been "out" to friends house parties, "out" downtown to watch the fireworks, but not "out" amongst a crowd of strangers counting down and drunkenly singing "Auld Lang Syne".
(...oh, and I lied, I'm recalling one right now but it's memorable only because of the very itchy sequined dress I was wearing!).
And I realize I'm perfectly fine with that. I'd so much rather be surrounded by my closest friends and family in a more intimate meaningful gathering than inhaling clouds of smoke (they're not allowed to do that anymore, are they?) in a bar full of people I hold no affiliation with.
This year Jamie, Sarah, and I spent New Years with our friends Jennifer, Chris, and baby Lucas in their home in Norris Point. We watched stupid tv, chatted, splurged on a iced-down pineapple cooler (ha!), chatted with family and friends on the phone, and Skyped with Christa at 12 o'clock!
That's me. I like it that way.
How about you? Are you an all-out party person? Or more of a homebody on New Years?
However you decided to greet the New Year, I hope it was a great one! All the best in 2010!
