my money is on '33'
(i'm sure there is a way for sean to check, right?)
27. i won't be!
I might be one of them if I don't get paid by the end of the day! That or I'm going to have to use my young good looks to get alcoholic beverages.
if you haven't got anything planned with friends/family for whatever reason then you may as well, what else are you supposed to do? New Year is shit anyway, it's just an excuse for a piss up with people you know and without that you have nothing. I could well be venturing out later, so I'm not defending myself here, I just thought you were being harsh on the people who'll inevitably end up on here at midnight. There will be a few, law of average and all that.
Sounds terrible. Enjoy your evening though.
what will you be drinking tonight bamos?
NYE is a complete unevent for me. It's forced fun. I'm going out tonight like it is every other night.
I have never had a blinding NYE, it's always a let down!
so, yeah I'll probably have fun but it won't be any different from a regular drinking session with mates that's what I'm saying. There's nothing special about New Year at all really.
New Years is shit anyway - its basically just counting down from 10 to 1 with a bunch of mongoloids and then feigning joy because its a new day.
(yes I am stopping in)
"it's just an excuse for a piss up with people you know" - that's exactly what makes it good, everyone loves a piss up and it helps if it's with people you know. there's a free street party up here, everyone goes and it's great.
it's not different from any other piss up.. yeah I'll probably enjoy myself but it isn't anything special because it's New Year.
ya big shandy
Watching the countdown on tv or pouring yourself another large one? Trying to knock one off at the stroke of midnight?
Except that you can do more things on a computer, like talk to people and make stuff, and not just vegetate.
YOU'D BE ONE OF THOSE GEEKS WITH NO LIFE
honestly tony, everyone knows that tv watchers have better lives.
Bunch o' geeks. Wouldn't be caught dead with one. I'm gonna go watch some TV now, I hope Loose Women is on or something.
Watching Loose Women online is the most depressing idea I've ever heard. (I hope it's not actually possible)
computers > TVs (by a hundred million miles).
Though I may have to try it... but the prospect of my first few minutes of 2009 full of self-loathing, beads up my bum and kleenex is probably not a good way to start ones year.
I'll sit on Drowned in sound until 23:41 and then go out and celebrate with my pals, technically rendering me "online"
I might start using "online" as a euphemism for stuff. "Baby, I am ONLINE!"
or ill come over there and leave ye online til next week
there'll be a few from the states and other parts where it's not midnight here, plus a couple of lonely brits
since leaving school i haven't had a group of friends who all hang out together, they're all completely different and live miles away.
plan tonight = drink a few lagers and watch tv with my parents.
That way, I could save a few quid. I really despise New Year's Eve, especially when last year's set me back one hundred and thirty five pounds :-(
As I live a few miles out of Manchester, taxi fares are, as you've probably experienced, deliriously extortionate. Plus venue tickets and inflated drink prices all add to my financial headache. I'd much rather be watching Hootenanny.
even with those expenses.
tickets for a lot of places can be like £10-15, a taxi home from cardiff would cost me £90, then there's drinks on top of that.
£30 is too much for a taxi IMO. Find a cheaper alternative or don't go.
and today I learned that bamos is a cunt
but yeah, yeah well done. :D
If they want to do porn it's their choice and I have needs after all.
it could almost be translated as "people are sad enough to spend new year in front of a computer, they really should get a life".
Even if you didn't mean it like this, surely you knew that's how it would come across.
Then I tried to make an argument against what you said and I got a dismissive response.
Are they tears of joy from seing such an amazing, life changing poster, in action?
are you disagreeing with this?
There are circumstances where people might spend it in front of a computer (they might live a long way away from friends and don't have the money to travel). It doesn't mean that they need a life.
And some people would probably be very happy to be online for New Years Eve (very few people I imagine but they do exist, I'm sure).
God, people are so judgemental.
I have just purchased a bottle of champagne though which I am going to force down my neck tonight, try to enjoy it and then worry about the consequences in the morning.
I will say, um, 27.
someone's got 27.
and in the house across the road there was a thirty-something woman sitting alone at her computer. With a glass of red wine. It was pretty depressing.
that you're a cunt
Everything's coming up bamos today.
my hair is straighter than Ironside today
and about 7 of them will be dormant. If there's anyone on DiS properly at midnight, I feel for them.
that people felt the need to be on here on Christmas Day so I'm going to say 40
hence boredom and going on the internets.
My guess is 17.
Christmas should be more common. I'm going to say 23.
normally the internet is a barron wasteland on christmas which i've never understood as i'd have thouht there is a correlation between bordom and the internet, but yeah cant remember from last year but i'd say there will be about 30
= ohman :(
The last I heard people were just going to our local, nothing fancy.. and this was mentioned on Christmas Eve, I think I should text someone to find out.
probably around the same at 00:00, should have posted the users online nowlist of shame
..might've been logged in but away from their computers. I used to be permanently logged in, even when I wasn't around.
but yeah, I don't think it was even possible to log out last night, we were trapped
