Last week’s poll asked to settle the on-going battle here, once and for all, about roundabouts. Most people love them because they seem to feel that they work in some situations and when they do, they’re great. The rest of you, the smart people ;-), agree with me and hate the fucking things. Well, based on this poll I guess we know why they keep putting them up–people love them–even though they don’t know how to use them and they certainly don’t know how to build them.
This week’s poll has to do with your usual plans for New Years Eve. I am interested in knowing if you stay in, go out, or spend the night with friends or family elsewhere. I spent many a New Years Eve with friends growing up and then one year, when I was 21, I went to the bar with friends. After some drunken, blacked out, asshole broke a beer bottle over someone else’s head and the glass cut my thumb requiring stitches, I swore off ever going out to a bar on NYE again. Since then we have pretty much stayed at home (I have hosted New Years at our place for as long as I can remember) but I know other people still either brave the drunks at the bar or at least on the road by driving elsewhere. This year will be pretty low key being that all of our money is going to the baby and the fact that I really am getting too old for this shit ;-)
So what do you do? Do you head to the bars to party like it’s 1999, do you hang out with friends/family at their places, or do you host your own party (large or small) at your house? Perhaps you don’t even bother with NYE at all knowing that we’re an hour behind and it’s just not the same without a lucid Dick Clark?
