    Family and Friends, Pasta for good luck and longevity, and Martinelli apple cider for a non alcholic drink to cheer on the new year... Also, lots and lots of champagne.

    Most times New Year's eve is the one night a year I am in bed before midnight.
    This last one was one of those most times.

    Really though the two choices are house party or town party. Town party is a game for people far richer than I (invariably going to have an entry charge of some notable amount, any drinks about 3 times the normal price, the place is likely to be filled with more oxygen thieves than usual, music is usually crap) and house party is not much better as I have probably just spent the last week or two already visiting everybody I am likely to meet there and doing dinners as it was Christmas. If parties normally were a rarer occasion then maybe but "because it is Thursday" is usually a suitable reason for most of my friends and associates and thus new year's has no great appeal.

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    Dont care about the New Year at all. It is just pagan. Every year is bad. I am just happy to be with my families and friends that I care about and we had good time on New Year Eve and NewYear Day. Spending time with them is precious everyday.

    I watched Turkish Star Wars, making it the first movie I've seen in 2018, and that was by design. Between this, Turkish Rambo, and Kareteci Kiz (Karate Girl), Turkish movies are pretty damn funny.

    friends, party, some karaoke shit, then, I remember being drunk and getting back to code. Coding is beautiful. Even more when you miss coding

    the funny part is after 3rd game normal people would have quit. but my friends just dont know when to quit.




    after as i was counting my money i felt really bad. but then after i remembered the games im going to buy, with this cash and how much im going to enjoy myself.


    the only thing was missing was hookers.

    Chilled at home with my mother and younger sister. I'm not a party person so I wouldn't have gone out even if I was alone.

    I went to a 12 hour rave and saw Armin Van Buuren among other artists and it was a blast.

    Fancy restaurant, pub and then I woke up without my pants in a hotel room. It's exactly how I thought I would spend it.

    I went to my moms for dinner, then later to my uncle's party. Had a great time.
    I never knew my uncle was collecting N64 games. He has a sealed NIB Conker as well as a couple of other sealed games, and about 20 loose cartridges. Though most of the cartridges are probably from my childhood when his kids were playing the N64.
