Am I the Most Pathetic New Year's Celebrant Out There?

After all, here it is, the peak party night of the entire party year, and I'm sitting next to my wife who is also at her computer, eating Sam's Club cream puffs and Trail Mix, reading (and now posting) The Cellar, while the meat for tomorrow's open house chili thaws in the oven...and I'm sober, to top it all off...

I'm sure someone is more pathetic than I am right now...please?

Happy New Year, all!

I am pathetic but only in political terms at the moment.

You wanna see my tatoos? (shows knuckles)

Nah...I'll be cleaning, too, because we're having an open house tomorrow, plus, I'm not drinking white russians. Oh, and now we're watching them do the obligatory "famous people who died this year" retrospective on the 10:00 news...

Rho and I watched "L&O" most of tonight. I'll watch Dick Clark, if I don't fall asleep shortly (it's about 11:20p EST here).

I think even more pathetic than your political career, Al, is the fact that you were the funniest thing on Saturday Night Live this past year...sigh.

well, i think weve abandoned cleaning for the night. its 9:20 here and were starting up lotr. nothing special, but it was a busy week and a half or so. its kind of nice just to kick back and have a quiet evening at home. so im gonna go add a shot or two more vodka to my drink and hopefully sleep very peacefully. happy new year everyone, i hope it turns out to be exactly what you want it to be.

I read this thread, watched some of the very fine "Insomniac" television program, went upstairs and made a cup of decaf, came back down here, and, forgetting that I had read new messages only 20 minutes ago, I read this thread again.

Ain't nothin' wrong with it, in my opinion.

New Year's Resolutions

Okay, I need some help with these...

What's another word for "extortion"?

How many e's in "paranoia"?

Anyone know a good place online to purchase large quantities of live eels?

Happy New Year to all the Cellar denizens. Glad I found this place, you guys are whacked...

Man, Dick Clark's program is fucking lame-o this year. (If you live in the Mountain or Pacific Time Zones, don't even bother.) James inspired me...I'm gonna do some cleaning after the ball drops.

My NYE celebration:

- Went to see TTT with my dad (5:10PM showtime).
- Consumed Chinese food.
- Acquired icecream on the way home.
- Posted this.

I suspect I'll go to sleep before I can do any really, really exciting celebratory-type things like "MUD", "IRC", or "play some Counterstrike".

Nyah.

Wow...the people on top of the hill about a half mile away from my house just shot off about five minutes worth of Class A fireworks at midnight...obviously they are (1) having more fun than I am, and (2) much more well-financed than I am.

L&O was lame tonight. Adult Swim NYE Bash was excellent, except for the local Comcast insertions on top of whatever Adult Swim was actually doing at Midnight.
