Every year, I go to Seattle for New Years Eve. I love watching the fireworks on Space Needle, even last year's fiasco where the computers crashed and the fireworks did not fire. Anyway, I am wondering what happens in Vancouver BC? Is there a community celebration like in Seattle?

There have been in the past, it was called "First Night". However, due to the increasingly heavy police presence causing too many problems, most people have just given up and stay at home or go to private parties.

Quoting Cadet57 (Reply 3): Its not even thanksgiving yet... And we're already talking about new years? Oy...
Hah, you know what's funny? I was in downtown LA on Sunday night, and they had a bunch of trees along one street lit up with Christmas lights and shit. It was probably like 55-60 degrees outside, but as soon as I saw the lights, I automatically felt much colder. I think I half expected it to start snowing.
Funny how Christmas lights are forever intertwined in my mind with cold New England winters.
I'm watching Jeopardy. The category is worst Madonna songs. "This one from 1987 is terrible".

Being the bitter, cynical SOB that I am, I'll probably be bitching and moaning on how I couldn't achieve my goal of getting laid one last time before year's end, how I probably wont get laid next year either since I'll still be stuck in PRC, and how life will suck as a flight instructor.

Not sure yet. Many possibilities. Maybe work to take my mind off of things. May go out with a friend. Might possibly go home. Might do something completely different. It all depends on what happens between now and then. Tomorrow is always subject to change.

I've never really done anything much for New Year; I should imagine that this year, like most, will centre around watching Jools Holland and his little clique of oh-so-fashionable guests prance around on BBC2 having a party and singing songs. And then I'll go to bed at about 00:30 wondering what all the fuss is about, having had about three glasses of Coke and a Chinese takeaway.
I went to a party once, back when I was an undergrad student, and had a couple of drinks; New Year seemed even more insignificant after Tesco Value vodka.
Have you ever felt like you could float into the sky / like the laws of physics simply don't apply?
