    Happy New Year

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Steerpike, Dec 31, 2013.

    I wish a safe and happy new year for each and every member of the forum. 2013 has been fun here, and I'm looking forward to 2014.

    Be safe, all.

    I know it's a bit early for some of us, but Happy New Year to all!

    One of my resolutions last year was that I wouldn't get too drunk tonight. Let's see how that plays out. (I've already had 2 beers so far, and it's only 3 pm; it's not looking good.)

    If 2013 was a disappointment, take heart; 2014 can be a fresh start.
    !f 2013 was a banner year, take it as a challenge to make 2014 even better.

    Happy New Year to all!

    Happy New Year to the folks in the Central Time Zone! (Too bad the Champagne is gone...)

    Enrique Inglsias is performing. One more hour until East Coast coverage ends.

    Finalmente, el año nuevo viene a la Costa Oeste de los Estados Unidos.

    Buenas noches a todos.

    I wish I could be excited about the New Year, but nothing really ever changes.

    Happy New Year to my fellow Pacific Standard Time Zonians. I know that's not a real thing, but I'm too drunk to care. Actually, one of my resolutions is to not be so drunk NYE 2014.

    I guess that would make you 'three sheets to the wind.'

    I wish you all a wonderful get-to-sleep-in-morning and a finally-got-that-book-finished new year. Goodnight from the Seattle suburbs. :D

    The world doesn't change unless you create the change. The excitement is for remembering that you have an opportunity to make this an outstanding year. For my part, I choose to start each day enthusiastically. Today is no exception, and I started it with a brisk walk. It was cold and clear, and the sunrise was brilliant. Not a lot of color, but gold flecks in the wispy cirrus clouds.

    Happy New Year to all my friends on WF. I'm looking forward to 2014 because I expect to finish the first draft of my novel and begin a long and arduous but, with luck, ultimately successful editing and polishing process.

    Bit late but Happy New Year everyone! It's 3pm here on January 1st, and I've only just been able to see colours again through the hangover. It was good. Oh boy was it good.

    Happy New Year to everyone, hope 14 will beat 13. My New Year's resolution is to stick to my New Year's resolution.
