Happy New Year 2006

By johnboy - 1 January 2006 8

Well I’ll be down at the coast, hopefully in a disgraceful state, by the time this message appears.

But in the meantime why not amuse yourself and others with accounts of your own New Years adventures?

What’s Your opinion?

Sam, what makes New Year’s Eve a big event is that a lot of people celebrate and party all at once. The year number ticking over is just a point for everyone to focus on simultaneously. What really matters is lots of people getting together all at once in a big party and enjoying life and each other’s company. Now do you understand?

Cake and champagne on a blanket in Glebe park, watching half a dozen cops pissbolt past after some rowdy teens – top entertainment. Nice fireworks too.

That must be the same tumbleweed that just blew past my desk. I swear I can hear ghosts whispering stuff about spagetti western movies….

Okay, New Years….

Got drunk for a change….

But all in all a pretty quiet night drinking, eating prawns and watching Michael Palin’s ‘Ripping Yarns’.

Bloody hell it was hot!

Had a few folks around at my place, there was much to drink and eat, some riveting (if only slightly drunken) conversation and a new years cracker a-la (sp?) Chinese New Year.

Back at work now and it’s a bit like a ghost town (I swear that a tumbleweed just rolled past my desk), and I’m losing the battle with trying to not duck out for a coffee before eleven…

Anyway, happy new year y’all.

I was at a house party, we were outside and two people were walking ‘home’ one being pushed in a trolley by the other.
We got talking to the them, they were backpackers from Switzerland.
They hung with us for a few hours.
It was great fun.
I enjoy meeting people from other places.
They girl had the sexiest accent too!

I said happy new year to my family, had a cup of tea and rang a Sydney radio station who can’t be heard in Canberra (webstream excluded) to wish an ex-2ue announcer a happy new year and congratulate him on his new job. Whilst on hold I saw some of the fireworks out of my window and some on TV. Not long after this I had a shower and went to bed.

New years eve isn’t a huge event in my view, and I think celebrations for it go a bit overboard. Apart from which it would have been far to noisy (and uninteresting) for me at any of the celebration points.

I wrote a lengthy article about it here for those who are interested in my full opinion on the matter.

None the less, happy new year, I hope you are all well!

I could have gone out last night and got absolutely sloshed/muted/pissd/troshed/sluaghtered/inebriated/bored/stoned/trashed/legless/wizzedout/wacked/blind/smashed/hammered/blotto/deranged/screwed/buzzedout/freakedout/friedup/fkdup etc. But I decided to be an ulrta boring gimp and stay at home conserving finances (which I have so little of) and my liver blah blah wo is my blah…

Anybody go into Civic for the * Dance Party * ? How was Civic last night ? Let’s hear all the stories …

I also have to start work on the 3rd. So have pitty for this boring Canbrlurred soul.

In any case. Happy New year 🙂
