New Zealand is 20 hours ahead of Calgary. So at 4 a.m. last night, it was already midnight Jan. 1 there.

And now it's Jan. 2 already. Time flies....

Has anyone else noticed the trend from this holiday season to send out blanket holiday greeting text messages? I'm even getting them from people and number I have no idea who they are.

Happy New Year gents - all the best for 2009...

How'd you ring in the new year - party, quiet evening at home? Not much of a celebration for me...spent it trying to get over a cold.

I did precisely the same thing. I fell asleep at 8:30, woke up at 11:00, back to sleep at 11:20-ish, woke up at 4:00 and saw Viacom and Time Warner reached an agreement about their fee dispute, as evidenced by the fact that Comedy Central was still transmitting.

The KCPD use my street as an artery to get quickly from one neighborhood to another, so there were many sirens last night. It bothered me less than it used to. Someday I'll move into a really safe neighborhood and not be able to sleep without all the street noise.

Comedy Central sucks. They are like Saturday Night Live rejects who didn't make the cut, but have somehow been led to believe that exaggerating their "overacting" is somehow funny. Whatever that one variety show is with all the skits...pathetic....most of the stand up comics....pathetic.....like "who did you f - ck to get that job?". If you were as good onstage as you were on the casting couch, your show would be worth watching.

Aside from all that HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

I went to the gym and did a New Year's Eve workout plus cardio from 11:15pm to about 1:00am. I was sprinting on the treadmill as the hour passed over. Starting the New Year out right. Did a 2nd workout at 11:00am at a different gym today. Going back to the night gym again later this evening.

We went out for Indian food, then stayed in.
Someone has horrible taste in movies for holidays which made me grump.

Happy New Year everyone!

Happy New Year Guys!!

Mom made the required black-eyed peas and corn bread for new year's.

I was told by a Brazilian friend of mine that they eat seven grapes and wear white underwear.

What other New Year's traditions are there in your region or country?

very interesting! thanks for sharing.

for us, it's sauerkraut and pork. for those who dislike sauerkraut, you at least have to have hog/pig meat on jan 1 before any other meat. for example, if you eat chicken, you'll be scratching in dirt for money all year. if you eat fish, you'll be swimming against the stream all year. and so on. i suspect it's old german lore, but know for sure that it's good old appalachian, white-trash superstition. so we had sauerkraut, pork roast, and green beans on jan 1 before we left for the rose bowl.

New Years requirements in South Louisiana are Cabbage (health) and black-eyed peas (wealth). Never tempt the food gods :wink:
