    Attended a private party with gay friends, same professional group as last New Year's. Very nice buffet, and we were all served champagne to toast midnight, using the NYC Times Square ball drop on TV as our cue, being in the same US time zone as us.

    As an older group close to my own age, by 12:30 most of us had departed, and nothing wild & crazy happened while I was there. A few remained after we left, but knowing them I still don't think anything went on in the bedrooms.

    At this point in my life, New Year's Eve is no longer an excuse for hard partying & drinking, but merely an annual custom to be observed & enjoyed with friends. New Year's happens all by itself without me needing to make raucous noise about it, but it does provide a traditional opportunity for all our friends to come together in happy celebration. As such, I love to honor it.

    I went to my bestfriend and her boyfriends party, had a few drinks, and played a lot of Rockband with everyone.

    Early on when she and I got there we ordered a pizza and she went to get it. Her boyfriend took me upstairs and wanted to show me something. He opens a safe, and takes out an engagement ring.

    I distracted her with a Dream Theater song on Rockband later on when he ran upstairs to get the ring. He came back down, ring behind his back, and she started freaking out. It was so cute icon_smile.gif. She'd been waiting six years for this too, and he kinda led her on during Christmas.

    All in all, a fun night! icon_biggrin.gif

    Simple, relaxed quiet night at home with my partner. First time in years that I haven't had a party or a club to attend. I enjoyed it.

    I curled up with the doggies and watched "Topaz", one of my favorite Hitchcock films. Oh, who am I kidding, all of his films are my favorites.

    I went out with some friends to a live music bar in Omaha. Was supposed to meet up with a guy to welcome in the new year. Alas, I never heard from him. icon_sad.gif
    Don't know what happened. So we all just partied with the band.

    Me? I went to the first ever "Pelican Drop" in Pensacola with a bunch of friends. For those who are wondering, it is like the ball in New York if it was in the shape of a bird and about 1/500th of the budget. It was actually a pretty good time. It was a nice way to say good riddance to 2008.
