New Years Eve Activities....

....ok, I know it sounds strange to some of you (and certainly a few of you have told me I shouldn't do this) but I am spending New Years Eve at home tomorrow night. Alone.

I'd pretty much decided to do this a couple of months ago when I was contemplating picking up tickets for B-Movie or organising something else.

I'm actually looking forward to it. A night in with the house all to myself! It's a dream!!!

My plan is to cook myself a nice dinner and then spend the evening reading, meditating over the last twelve months and looking at the twelve to come, listening to music and generally just chilling. At midnight I'll probably be on the phone to my Mum or a friend wishing them 'Happy New Year!" and stroking a sleeping cat or two curled up in my lap. This is how I really want to spend this New Years Eve believe it or not!

There's pretty much only two people on the planet that could change my mind and as I don't expect to hear from either of them before tomorrow night (and even they'd have a struggle convincing me out tomorrow night!) I feel fairly secure in my plans.

I've been clubbing on NYE for the last two years and used to rotate between 'club' 'friends' 'home' before that. Also last year I actually felt completely alone and lonely at the club, even though I knew a lot of people there. I just wasn't in the right frame of mind and want a year out to collect myself.

The other thing about clubbing on NYE is that it's generally a lot more expensive to get in, certainly a lot more expensive to get home again (if you take a taxi!), there are hundreds of drunk b**stards everywhere and many of the friends that you'd normally see at the club are off doing something else because it's NYE! When you go clubbing regularly throughout the year NYE is usually (in my experience) more of a letdown if you're clubbing than not!

I am aiming to go to Inferno at the Electric Ballroom next Friday though if anyone is interested?

Anyway, that's my plans for tomorrow night. Thanks to everyone who has invited me to their houses or parties, I do appreciate the offers but already have my plans laid out.

I hope everyone has a truely wonderful evening whatever you get up to and to see you all in 2006! (Although you'll be subjected to mroe of my ramblings tomorrow...hahaha....(evil laugh)....)

Preaching to the Miserable
Excellent.
I do this almost every year. Going out and drinking holds relatively little interest for me, and of late, I invariably ignore the whole New Year celebrations, and spend it on-line.

Now all you have to do is extend this to Christmas and you will discover how liberating it really is.

Re: Preaching to the Miserable
I often go out on NYE (see my bit about rotation) but do enjoy staying in every so often and must admit that staying in (eitehr with friends or by myself) and having a chilled evening often produces some of the best NYE's I've had (see comments re clubbing...).

My ideal NYE would be to have all of my friends in the same place and dance, chat and drink the night away. That's never going to happen though as everyone is off doing different things that night. That's why I like going clubbing on non-NYE nights more. Better chance of seeing friends and also less drunks wandering around the streets...

Christmas, for me, always sees me head to my mothers and sisters place. None of us siblings have missed one yet and I can't see myself doing so unless I end up living far away or until I have a family of my own.

I've always held that Christmas is for families and NYE's for friends. I can get away with being along on NYE whereas I'd never be allowed to do that at Christmas!

Might see you online tomorrow night then! :p

Re: Preaching to the Miserable
To be fair my own family is three hours away, so I rarely get to see them. Whereas none of my three parents do much for the season, my sisters do a bit more. Not a huge amount, but enough I suppose. Even if I were to visit, I suspect that there would be reltively little going on...
