Happy New Year to all!
Bratcat and I went into NYC to see the musical Gypsy. Even by 1 pm Times Square was very crowded. Those people still had 11 hours until the ball dropped. By the way, we could see the 2009 on the building and the pole that the ball travels down but we couldn't see the ball itself (it was at the bottom of the pole hidden behind the 2009). When we came out of the show at 4:30, the police on 44th Street (where we were) told us not to even try to head back down 7th Avenue (where Times Square is). So we walked 8th Avenue back to Penn Station. Even that was a zoo.
We spent the rest of the evening at home, watching TV. Nonamejames went out to a friend's house but we spoke to him at midnight. Because there was drinking there, he didn't drive (and no one else drives if they've been drinking). The taxis were running 1-1/2 hours behind schedule. He called to see if I would be willing to pick him (and a few friends) up so out I went at 2:45 am.
Like Sherry, I don't make resolutions so I won't feel letdown if I break them. This year I plan to clean out all the boxes and drawers that I've stuffed with papers and junk in 2008. I figure I have a whole year to do that.
I wish everyone a happy, healthy, financially comfortable 2009.
