Anyone got any big plans for New Years Eve?

Anyone else always find New Years Eve to be a bit of an anticlimax? Y'know, it's not a bad nite out, but because you think it should be the ultimate, it tends to be a bit of a let-down?

I kind of always hated it with a passion. This year is a pretty big departure for me, but the way I'm looking at it is its a good chance to get all my friends together when they all have the next day off, plus we get to dress up like total tits and get wasted.

The anticlimax thing is always true. In clubs you all shout happy new year, hug, kiss, act like best friends, and by five past twelve people are bottling each other and fighting. There's too much pressure to enjoy, which leads to frustration when people don't have the wonderful evening they were expecting. But you can never go wrong with your friends, the poison of your choice and a bit of music. No pressure, no wild expectations, but still should be a really fun night.

Plus we get to do the bouncy crossing arms holding hands auld langsyne thingy.

Yeh... big problem for me is that my friends will be so scattered... some mates will be in Swansea, others in Winchester, the missus will be in London, Noriko'll be in Tokyo etc....

I think I will probablly spend it getting very very drunk and then freezing half to death outside waiting for a Taxi till 5 in the morning before getting in and passing out on the sofa.

It will probably involve Walkabout (top place on NY eve) and whatever alcohol is going cheap

Just go out for a few drink s with my mates round town then gather with the rest of the city outside the minster for the countdown, before maybe going to a club, don't know if I can be arsed to pay the price of the tickets though, might just have a party at my house, normally house parties are wank, but I've had too superb ones on New Year's eve and a couple of good bonfire/bday ones.

Times Square in NYC, baby. Oh yes. One of the most chaotic New Year's parties in the world, and we'll be there.
