    I have a non-nerdy wife that enjoys cooking as much as I do - we'll be making up little snacks and treats.

    Well, I thoughtfully bought some video games at the local Gamestop yesterday, so at least in theory, I will not be browsing the net during New Years.

    Browsing the net, or Playing a computer game.
    I don't know if the latter is any better :p

    I have drunk a bottle of wine and put on some loud music. That will keep me happy.

    Hmm, well my excuse for being antisocial is that I have been on holiday, and my phone has had no battery. So I haven't received all the invitations to parties that my (thousands of) friends sent me :p

    I am going to a party, get a little drunk. Then come home and do some Goldstein problems.
    Now that's fun.

    Not really alone, but home with my parents. Pethetic? Nah, I wouldn't say so. Just tired of intensive partying. :cool:

    Wife and I are going to the Hotel about 9:00, along with our niece, her boyfriend (who is also our next-door neighbour) and our visiting nephew. We'll be digging on the band, playing VLT's, and drinking to excess. If there are people that I know playing, I might even sneak in a pool game or two. When they close at 3:00 am, we'll continue partying at home. Everything is within walking distance, and nobody has to work tomorrow.

    edit: Just noticed your post, Redbelly. Nice touch to your avatar.

    I'm hoping to catch some episodes of House tonight and am watching some movies and documentaries. :)

    I'll be watching at least four episodes tonight to finish off season 1!! (never saw it in its entirety)

    I'll be spending New Year's at home with the lady (but she is having her special time of the month :eek: so I think that qualifies as spending it alone :rofl:)

    I drank my first beer in, oh, fifteen years or so, the other night. Maybe I'll get crazy and have another.

    My wife and I, two nerds, are spending tonight at home trying not to wake up our two-year-old daughter.

    House! Me too! Just got season two, disk two today from Netflix. I'll down one or two of those before going to bed at around 10.

    Me and the wife* are getting up at 6AM, dumping the kids at the grandparents, and heading up North a bit to ski. We had full day of snow here, and the mountains are newly covered. We plan to be on the snow while most people are still trying to pry open their eyelids.

    Just got season 3 of House on dvd! So that will be taking up a good portion of New Years Day!

    Last night I was much more social than usual. My best friend and I went out to a bar and rang in the new year with beer, music and pool. (She feels the need to keep me social so I don't become too nerdy:smile:)

    I watched FIVE episodes last night...yesss! I'm two deep into season two :smile:

    I'm in the club :)

    I could of gone to a dance club with friends but paying $30 to get packed like sardines doesn't make sense.
