New Years

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
What is everyone doing for NYE?

We're a gang which celebrate new years together every year (with extended friends, all depending on who is hosting), so basically I am off to a dinner party and then drinking 'til dawn if my cold will allow it.

    I was meant to be going away to Manchester for a couple of days to celebrate the new year with some friends. (they all seem to be living there at the moment, for some reason) Unfortunately, it doesn't look like that's going to be happening now. Someone is intent on shitting on me from a great distance above, it seems.

    If I'm at home, I will probably be doing absolutely nothing. That said, there's quite a lot of alcohol in the house right now, which should help. Usually, it's just my mum's wine bottles, and the wine she likes tastes like something that was taken out of a lavatory pan.

    I'm going out in Leeds to a night called Technique and Asylum, at a club called The Space. Haven't been out in Leeds before as moved to Huddersfield recently so should be interesting! My lil sis is coming to stay and she wants to try her first pill that night...................!!! Hope she likes it!000000

    I'll be at a party my close friend is hosting. Gonna be drunk, really drunk. Drunk and looking for a lady to 'snogg' (it is 'snogg' right?) at midnight.

    Be the first time ever if I can manage it. :cool:

    (it is 'snogg' right?)

    Just the one 'g' on snog AARJ :)

    I hate New Year. I'll be staying in for the first time ever and I know I'll love every minute of it.

    I hate the politics of organising New Year. I hate the sly way people ask what you're doing so that they can work out whether they have to hide the the fact they're having a party and you're not invited. I hate the counting down to midnight. The best New Year ever was at our local pub a few years ago when the landlord forgot to count down and it was 00:04 on January 1st before anyone noticed! I hate how you have to hold hands with people you don't know or like and sing a song that nobody knows the words to whilst pretending to be all happy and joyful when really you're just dreading the next bit... kissing people you don't know, don't like or who smell like a brewery and/or taste of vomit. Eurgh. It's not a problem for me to kiss and hug my nearest and dearest, but I am not one of these people who can sidle up to mere acquaintances, wrap my arms around them and plant a smacker on their lips or cheek. It just isn't me, and most years I rush to the loo as soon as the first verse of Auld Lang Syne has finished just to avoid the cringing pleasantries.

    Erm. I don't know. I am more than likely working both NYE and NYD, since I was on holiday over Christmas. Rich is coming to sunny Essex though, which'll be fun. I hate New Year anyway. Bah.

    Staying in, consuming far too much vodka and hunting down one of best friends for a catch up because I've hardly spoken to them all week because we've both been busy.

    Well I WAS planning on going to a house party in Bristol but that's all gone tits up thanks to my useluss friend who was fucking around with one of the hosts and now we're very firmly 'NOT invited'. Hmm.

    Either stay in London or go to the Bierkeller in Bristol for some good rock and metal.

    We're going to have a game night and I think theres plans of going to a few of us girls houses to have something traditional to each of our cultures. Theres four so there will be Japanese, Korean, Polish, and unfortunatly for me, I have Irish and the only recipes I can find have cabbage and potatos. Yummy butt fuel for new years :p Shall be fun anwyays, I'll probably use the man and use his Polish heritage to find something better to serve :p

    I'm off to Norway tonight, so will be celebrating with friends in Oslo :)
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    My new years plans have changed so much this year, first a club then a party but now I doubt I will go anywhere as I don't feel up to it, so just me and an early night.:rolleyes:
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    get plastered and find a party

    usual story :thumb:
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Staying at home =|
    Never actually done anything for new year, but I think next year I'd like to do something for a change. Although people here always tend to stay in on new year's, so not really missing anything decent..

    I never get invited anywhere (and if I am it probably involves clubbing :yuck: so I have to say no) so I guess I'll be alone at home...
    Maybe I'll go to the city centre and see if anything's happening in the square, not sure...
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    House party, tbh. Going out for New Years is rubbish and expensive and totally devoid of taxis.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I'm skinted unfortunately so i'll either just stay in (nye is very overrated and overcharged imo anyway) or may just grab a few bevvies in the local with a couple of mates
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    My friend had a baby 3 weeks ago and coz she'll be on her own otherwise I'm gonna chill with her and we'll see it in together then she's gonna cook me dinner on new years day :D I'm working 9 - 6 tomorrow though :(
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    i'm working, it's double pay. :) I actually volunteered to work and swapped with a 17 year old who desperately wanted to go to a party.

    I'm not fussed about NY to be honest. I've done my share of going out and snogging randoms.

    I'm only doing the box office tomorrow so I get to sit down and also wear whatever I want. Think I will take home around £80 for the night and get a free cab home.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Im terribly worried about writing 07 on things for dates, as opposed to what will be the new in thing of 08.

    I totally agree! The problem is that in my "house" there's only me and my mum and she goes out after the change, and there's no one to invite me to theirs.

    my NYE plans have been changing on a daily basis. the current plan is go out for a few drinks during the day tomorrow with the lads, then all split up to go to various things, im coming home to my gf and we're gonna have a bit of a buffet tea and have a few bottles of wine.

    no town for me on NYE this year, thank god. save money and a few years of my life.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Town I think, here it's just full of 16 year olds throwing bottles but we'll see what happens.

    I pulled on Thursday night when I was steaming and sort of agreed to phone her at the stroke of midnight (I don't know either), but I text her last night and she's not replied. Lol.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    i hate new year. people always ask what you are doing and i never have anything to do and i look such a loser when people ask.

    i shall sit at home, doing nothing, getting more and more depressed.
