Welcome ... welcome ...

Bar's to the right. Dancin' girls (and boys) on their way.

Food's catered by Wolfgang Puck.

Kibbutz, please. :)

At midnight EST, we'll watch the letter 'B' drop.

For now, tack on a resolution, real or fake, onto your replies. :)

Mine: to finish one of my degrees (real) and master the telekinesis thing (fake)

The Gulf of Mexico, west coast of Florida near Englewood.

We usually don't bring fish in the boat like that, as the stress on them is often fatal. But that one was fairly green and posed with us for less than ten seconds before it was returned to the water and revived in short order.

Those of us in Pacific time (including the Mistress Mac) still have about 40 minutes.

That's the one thing that sucks about living here in the Northwest. Midnight countdowns for various occasions happen here after practically everyone else in the world has already gotten over it. That, and the folks on the East Coast already know who the new American Idol is 3 hours before we do. (At most, I only watch the auditions and the finale.)

Yay, finally! Happy New Year and a great 2008 from Seattle, everyone!

The Space Needle fireworks show had/is having some technical difficulties. It was supposed to be 8 minutes non-stop, and there were unexpected breaks where the fireworks wouldn't go off when they were supposed to. During that time, however, someone did accept a marriage proposal right behind the King 5 news anchors. Nonetheless, the fireworks in the Downs have been going off for hours now and continue to do so.
