    Just wondering :p

    Me? Im thinking of going to the Ministy of sound gig in the 02 but at 75 a ticket its abit pricey.. and convincing a bunch of mates to go at that price will be hard.
    I do feel as if I should spend the cash though as my last 4 or so have been fucking shite!

    I did buy a couple return coaches to Cardiff planning to stay there for a few days (never been) but so bloody broke so won't be able to afford a hotel/food etc :(

    Looks like it's the Winchester

    ps: anyone want a couple of London-Cardiff return coaches leaving on the 30th?

    I am for the first time in 8 years not working New Years and am as such totally stuck as to what to do.

    Fly to Nurburgring and do some biking in the trails around the Eifel?

    I need something with minimal access to alcohol and it's a bit late to get a visa for Libya.

    EDIT: off from evening of dec 31st until january 4th.

    WTF do i do in that length of time? I haven't been off for that long in > 18 months!!

    I hate New Years. It's always a letdown unless you and your friends decide to have a chill night. If you actually try to go the "wooo it's new years let's go totally crazy" route, the night will either a) be a huge anticlimax, or b) a mysterious puzzle the following morning, each new piece of which reveals an increasingly horrifying picture.

    I don't know what I'm doing. Family or friends, or a bit of both. Or neither. To be honest having a wank and going to sleep sounds like a better plan.

    No idea yet. New Years is shite anyway.

    If I could i'd spent it quietly with my girlfriend and make love to her all night.

    What will happen is i'll go to some shitty party at a mates house and it'll be shit. Like every year.

    Boys got the right idea, although mine is better cause I dont have to talk.

    Going down to England (the fact that I go PAST Edinburgh to celebrate new years is very annoying). But girlfriend's folks are down there and she is going down and they have a big party in the spare house/massive fucking garage thing. Was really good last year, singstar being projected onto a fecking massive screen.

    In bed before 12 I'd wager, as usual. Woken up several times thereafter by firework wankers.

    The stingy buggers at Aberdeen Council are not having entertainment on at the Castlegate this year. Usually work with other roadie pals at it but for the 1st time in ages, there is no work for them. With no street party shenanigans this means the pubs will be ram packed.

    Probably best year to have a house/flat New Year party but with 2 young kids I'll probably be at my hoose with the wife.

    I think most places its 4, atleast around here. The NYE 02 thing is from 9-6am so who knows! I suppose having a 24 hour liscence helps.

    I'm just going to go over me local. Nice and simple and all the people in there will be people I know so i'll be able to join any table or standing group for a chat.
    Plus it's about 30 steps from my front door while sober.

    NYE is shit if you don't live in Glasgow where we have Optimo.

    I resent paying to go into a normal pub therefore I don't go out.

    I've got free entry to a festival in or near Skegness (not sure exactly where). Supposed to be loads of live bands and plenty of booze.

    Of course I won't be able to enjoy all of that as I'll be sat in a British Red Cross van aiding queues of people getting bottled and throwing up.
