New Year’s Day

Today belongs to the this new year. That is why there’s an apostrophe there. Same with new year’s eve. I’m not really sure why the case is different for Christmas eve though.

From what I have read it seems likely that NYE and NYD refer to the actual occurrence of that day, whereas Christmas eve refers to the generic day. That seems quite a lot like bullshit to me though.

Oh well, hope you’re all having a happy one. 🙂

2011 ✓

It’s the end of another year and I find myself in yet another city this time. As it tends to from year to year everything has completely changed. It’s been pretty hectic at times, but I think things should really start to settle down this coming year.

I’ve got an awesome girlfriend, we live in an awesome apartment, I have an awesome job, and some awesome friends. 🙂

I don’t really have time to do a full retrospective of the last year because we’re going over to see our friends and have a bit of a party. It should finish with watching fireworks up on the roof terrace. I did not think I’d be typing that sentence this time last year! 😀

Twenty Ten!

Yay, it’s the future now! Twenty-ten has started.

I spent New Year’s eve in Mansfield town centre with Dave, Hayley, Katy, Ryan, etc. We started the night at Ryan’s house for the first couple, and then headed to The Mill. Everyone was in a good mood and looking forward to the rest of the night. So after a few more drinks we headed into town to Wetherspoons.

Drinks flowed for a while and then Len came to meet us. Other people left to go to The Mill as I had made everyone promise to do, but I stayed with Len in Wetherspoons instead. We saw the new year in there with some other people and then headed into Liquid for the remainder of the night.

It was a good night overall, and I was very pleased to get to bed, even though it was getting light by the time I got to sleep!
