WAKE ME WHEN IT'S 2006
For the first time in my entire adult life, I missed watching the ball drop in Times Square. Slept right through it. DogMan was awake but completely forgot about it. I had to read about it in the paper:
'EVE' A WORLD REVEL-UTION
The champagne and the confetti flowed freely last night as the city bid goodbye to 2005 and hello to 2006 with a New Year's Eve celebration that drew revelers from all over the globe to Times Square.
Nearly a million came to count down the final seconds and watch the 1,000-pound Waterford Crystal ball drop into next year.
I missed Dick Clark Returns to TV to Mark New Year :
Clark, sitting behind a desk with the street scene in the background, sounded hoarse and occasionally was hard to understand, but he said, "I wouldn't have missed this for the world."
"Last year I had a stroke," he explained. "It left me in bad shape. I had to teach myself how to walk and talk again. It's been a long, hard fight. My speech is not perfect but I'm getting there."
In the meantime ...
8 New York's new laws take effect: Measures include minimum wage hike, tax cuts, reforms.
8 Snow in Europe ... in WINTER? Who woulda thunk? Snow blankets many areas of Europe, frigid temps cause 4 deaths
8 Rik, the American blogger in Italy, says Global Warming, my Ass: This morning I got outside to find it snowing pretty hard and we already had about 3 inches. And it snows so little here that the locals do not know how to drive in it. Either they drive crazy and out of control - it's common to see cars overturned in ditches or plowed into trees when it snows bad - or they drive entirely too slow.
8 Did George Clooney reunite with Lucy Liu? Maybe. However, he supposedly doodled this, so maybe not ;~)
Happy New Year, y'all!
