    Default Happy New Years 2009

    While it's still 2008 here in Hawaii, 2009 has already arrived some where else on this planet.

    So Happy New Year 2009!

    For myself I might sleep in tonight, do plan on watching a movie tomorrow with a couple of friends.

    So what about the rest of you?

    I just realized eldest spawn is currently living in the year 2009 while I'm still tagging along in 2008! Hopefully that makes her a year older...but not me!

    I'll be heading to a get together of friends in Hawaii Kai. Their evening is geared to the stroke of midnight. I plan to be home and asleep long before then! If a yearning to watch fireworks overcomes me, I can see the ATM display from my hale. My yearning for sleep will probably outweigh my yearning for fireworks! I can see those any ol' Friday night!

    That said...tonight is special, soooooo....

    :::HAPPY NEW YEAR:::

    !Fakafiefia 'ihe Ta'u Fo'ou!


    I went birthday shopping today. I have two birthdays in Jamuary, wife and youngest. Tonight will be just the two of us spendiing quality time in the backyard spa, drinking a couple of Mexico Libres. Afterwards, play a little Rummikube and then to bed early. The 'uaifi received a $15 coupon from the Daily Grill restaurant for her birthday. So tomorrow, we'll head over there for brunch.

    I'm feeling very gruntled. 2009 is going to be great!

    H N Y to all of you. Our home has a great view of the Space Needle, only a mile away, so we'll be watching them shoot off fireworks from there tonight, while sipping on a little prosecco.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for a great year of dialogue
    and aloha! Off to the hot tub for some martini's before the fireworks get too
    rowdy and Manele & Koele start getting irritated. They don't freak out so much
    as get annoyed with the booms and bangs.

    Everyone be safe out there and talk to you all in 2009! A hui hou!

    A very happy New Year to you too, sansei --- can you say it in Hawaiian?

    As a Japanese-American, you might be familiar with the tradition of extensive house-cleaning before the new year begins, as you are not supposed to clean house for a week after, so as to not risk sweeping out any good luck. That's what's happening in my home tonight!

    HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!

    It's still about 65 minutes away from 2009 here in L.A., but thought I would get a jump on it. The ol' party animals here at home (my husband and me) just finished watching a (really dumb) movie, and I'll probably catch some news. Then it's watch the ball drop, kiss, and then ZZZzzzzzz! Exciting, huh?! But we don't like to brave the streets here on New Year's Eve. Our son is at a party and may just stay with his buddies tonight. They don't drink, but they'll probably go eat at Denny's during the night! HA! I'd rather he stay there and not be a target for the cops, even though he's sober. Plus...the BIG plus...is there are several drunks on the road, so it's just as well for him to stay put.

    I wish all our HT buddies ALL the best for the new year. It doesn't look like we'll be visiting in '09, but I still have my memories from '08 to keep me warm! May God smile on each & every one of you!

    Happy New Years to All !

    It is now 11:15 pm, this thread might turn into a sort of "silent auction" type of competition .... who can post closest to 12:00 midnight of the New Year?
    Now run along and play, but don’t get into trouble.

    This year begins for me like the previous one did, with me in freezing temperatures and a thousand miles away from my wife and dogs.

    (On a positive note, at least it stopped snowing in time for people to get to tonight's shows.)

    Hold your loved ones close at the stroke of midnight and be glad that they are within arms/paws reach!

    Happy '09, everybody!

    All my very best wishes are winging their way from England and across two puddles to my friends in Hawaii. Have a great 2009.

    Can I share this with you ? It's great for kids to watch (even big kids. lol)

    Happy New Year everyone! We celebrated New Year's Eve on London time (husband goes to work at 2 am), in New York, wishing it were Hawaiian time . We had on Absolute Radio, broadcast out of London, and brought in the New Year to the sounds of Big Ben.

    Today we have pork for dinner. We always have pork on New Year's to bring good luck. Anyone else have any New Year's traditions?
