Whatcha Doin' For New Year's?

After asking a friend/potential girlfriend out twice during the month of December and getting both a "I really don't like going out on New Year's because of all the drunks on the road" and "I really never do much on New Year's" as replies (I wasn't going to ask a third time), I just wanted to make sure all the Otters here are going to be in bed at 9pm like me.

So: What are you doing for New Year's?

Work until 8 so probably watch movies until midnight.

As for your friend, you should've suggested a movie or games at her place.

Going to a concert NYE with the GF.

Shannon, if she don't want to go out then you should make plans to go out by yourself or with friends. Don't deprive yourself of fun, because she doesn't want to do anything.

Oh, I did. That's when I got the "I don't really do anything for New Year's" response.

Thanks...I figured going out by yourself on New Year's might be even more pathetic than staying in by yourself on New Year's, so I opted for the latter.

Working late then bed. As I get older, NYE has lost its appeal.

Spending a quiet evening at home with my Wife and Daughter. There's no other place I would rather be.

Quite the contrary. Always have a "Plan B" even if there is no Plan B. If she asks then you say that you went out for a couple of pints or dinner, etc.

Doesn't sound like much of a potential girlfriend if she's such a fuddy duddy.

Re: Whatcha Doin' For New Year's?

We're not sure yet, we wanted to go out for New Years this year but we also aren't a huge fan of the big crowds. Depending on what other family members do, might do the same that we've done the last couple years which is stay home, watch TV, and have some champagne.

tricking my 4 children under 6 that 8PM is midnight, putting them to bed, drinking some wine, and hopefully banging my wife. Asleep by 11PM.

Friends having party. Board games, ping pong, eating junk food until it hurts, watching stupid celebrities talk as the ball drops.

My thoughts as well, except we'll probably go out for dinner.

Re: Whatcha Doin' For New Year's?

I doubt I'll do anything. I work until 9pm New Year's Eve and its never really been a huge holiday for me since I don't drink. If I get invited to hang out with friends or whatever I'll do that but that's about all. At this point I'll probably just watch some movies or whatever.

Twilight Zone Marathon!
I work a block from where the ball drops in NYC, the nuttiness in the streets is to much for me. To bad my job doesn't let us watch from the building, we have a great view. Of course the only times they close the building down is Thanksgiving and New Years.
