Good Riddance to 2016 - and let's get ready for 2017! It's been a long time since I "went out" for NYE. Granted, I've had my share of nightclub NYE parties. Some I went to, others I worked! But that was a long time ago (before the Internet was popular). And I've had my share of house parties - they were fun too. Good food, playing with Christmas presents, and staying up late to watch the ball drop and have a sip of champagne. I've also had a few NYEs where I didn't even stay up (or fell asleep with the tv on). So this year it's a coin-toss if I'll see the ball drop in Times Square (on tv).
I let go of mine and others' expectations of the evening long ago. No matter where you go, it's crowded. And it's cold outside. And there are a lot of drunks out on the road. I've found that once I claimed it, this is now part of my "quiet time" that I enjoy. Everyone else is busy. Actually, I am busy too. I spent most of today writing 5 blog posts on my CCIE Security Study Notes blog. That finishes up Section 2.0 ! Looking at my last post here, it took me 10 days to write about 20 posts. That's not bad considering the time off for Christmas.
I haven't started the last book yet. Maybe that's something I should dig into this evening or tomorrow. [Between commercials or while watching the Twilight Zone marathon!] Well, here's hoping that everyone else stays safe (and eventually warm) too.
