How will you/did you usher in 2018?

[Post New]by Howdah on Dec 31, 17 7:39 PM
It is only 7:30 PM here on the left coast of US. I realize for many of you it is already 2018.

I am going to spend a lot of time in the Castle, maybe seeing if Jerianamo will join me in a toast. If not, no problem. I have an airline bottle of wine chilling. Maybe I will order a pizza or make some popcorn.

Whatever you do, stay safe and have a happy new year.

I’m in Reno, Nevada. I’m playing in the castle on level 82 trying to figure out when the update is coming so I can go on and drinking Long Islands. Might as well build coins and amulets. Happy New Years to you too.

I started watching ABC's New Years Eve, but the signal was so bad we couldn't see or hear it. Then I turned over to CNN's New Years Eve and watched both New York's and mine (Iowa). I was also playing MC at the same time. The temperature here is -17 Fahrenheit so I plan on hibernating tomorrow.

Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year!

Stayed in and stayed warm (-14 with WC of -30)
Played a little MC, gifted friends and did some online shopping.
Now I'm wide awake.

In a restaurant with family and several bottles of "alcoholic bubbles"!
Food was OK too!
But on the stroke of midnight we joined several thousand other folk in front of York Minster to hear the bells usher in the NY. Quite cold!

Is that MINUS 40???


Here in North Texas it is 27, and last night was 18, and I thought that was about as cold as we could tolerate!
You must be way north.

LOL ---- the best choice. Never have liked NYE ---- always regarded it as a tawdry excuse to behave poorly.

But, a Happy New Year to all!

...well I put on my party frock.I did step out on the dance floor a few times,watched some of the fireworks over London & got home at 2am.

Which goes to prove this morning that my brain is under an illusion that I'm 18 but my body is screaming that I'm not!!!

I stayed in and warm since it was way too cold to go out and about here in Wis.
This morning at 10am it was still -10 degrees...(with wind chill we were at -25). Finally this afternoon we hit a balmy 0 degrees. Yay!
So I'm just hanging out and playing a little MC, doing laundry and streaming an old tv show.

My hubby and I stayed in and watched concerts on public television (PBS?), and we were simply amazed at Tom Jones. The guy has really got it. Who would have thought after all these years? Even did a cover of a Prince song and nailed it. Alison Krauss sang several songs with him. The other 2 concerts were okay, but the Tom Jones was really good. It was 13 degrees when we went to bed a little before 2 a.m.

Happy New Year to all! ShaSha

I watched Happy New Year, Charlie Brown with my kids, and then we watched the ball drop on tv. Rang in the new year with my family, and wouldn't have it any other way.


Happy New Year!

Put on a sparkly dress... party at a friends house on their deck that overlooks the Swan River and the City of Perth in Western Australia..... saw the fireworks... danced the night away with good friends... drank a little too much bubbly... walked home with hubby at 3.15am enjoying a cool breeze... 21 degrees c here at that time.
Little bit of a sore head and a quiet day today playing MC!
HAPPY NEW YEAR - here's to a healthy and safe 2018 for all.
