Big night tonight

Is it fuck

Hated it as a kid, then as a young man and even now, although the seething dread has calmed into a eye rolling resignation i cant stand it. Still going out like, early doors a few of us round a table, maybe a curry then home to swear at Jools Holland

I've never understood the appeal. Christmas is fine, Birthday's are ok. What is there to celebrate about another year passing?
I certainly will not be going down the BSC to listen to a bunch of drunks tunelessly droning Auld Lang Syne before attempting to make some sort of unsolicited physical contact.

I think Roger Waters put it rather well.

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
The time is gone, the song is over, thought I'd something more to say

I think I remember reading once that the dinosaurs experienced something like 23 hour and forty-five minute days.

About as relevant as the start of the New Year - which should be tied to the winter solstice in my thoroughly atheist opinion.

It's still the end of the IRS tax year though - I'd better go sort my finances out sharpish.....

Copy that LD. Haven't been out on New Year since the millennium. We managed to stay awake until after Wilko Johnson's first song on Jools then went to bed approx 11.35. I've got a few resolutions for 2015 but the main one is a total boycott of all television news.

Does nothing for me and hasnt done since i was in me yoof!
Watched the first 10 mins of Jools and his now shitty tv prog. Fuckin awful and surely those that have watched his new year thang must feel the same?

Mrs FC and I would like to wish a happy new year to the conscientious and diligent traffic wardens of Royal Leamington Spa.

Yep, Jools was puke inducing dilgewater. You been upsetting the hardworking sympathetic parking nazis fc?

Two parking tickets in a week, LD. They are called Civil Enforcement Officers now. They appear to be wearing Kevlar jackets. Only a matter of time before they are tooled up with tasers.

Happy New Year everyone btw.

My resolution is 'no more selfies'.

Might I also suggest, "No more parking in handicapped spaces?"

That's a bit harsh - it was a loading bay. (Wink Icon) (Roll Eyes Icon) Forum Index -> Life in the fish bowl
