It was dark..it was noisy..it was..the coming of 2008!

Well..me and my family went to our cousins to celebrate the coming of 2008..there's the buffet..the games..the parties..and so on..

At the nearing of January 1st..we gathered around in the living room and prayed..as we always do..some of us shared our thanks for what God did for us in 2007..and then we adjourned..

Of course..it was not over until the stereotypical fireworks that always come in celebrating New Year have gone off..it's a bit in the mediocre side this time..and then the brown-out..

As 2008 came to materialize..I was thinking of what I should do in the coming year..a New Year's Resolution if you may..and frankly..I haven't thought of any.. :P

So there..that's how I spent the coming of 2008..how did you?

Right now it's pacific time, thus the time provided with every post.

I intend to watch the Sound of Music, an absolute favorite of mine.

Laugh for the time being, but I will climb every mountain to seek my revenge.

I have roughly two hours left.

My siblings wanted to watch the programming on ABC, so no Sound of Music. Oh well, the host just stated that tonight is the hundredth anniversary of the ball drop.

Wait, the year has already donned upon New York, so I suppose it can't be live.

Less than an hour to go when some idiot will set off illegal fireworks. Hopefully he'll get burned for his efforts so it'll be a great start for the New Year.

Half an hour to go in Idaho!

Bittersweet ending to the year for me. Lots of self discovery. Lots of raw emotion. Yeah...

Oh well, atleast I won the six day Risk tournament against the 'rents.

We lit off fireworks. They offered poor competition to those of our neighbors. I had hoped to scare some snow off the trees, but the reports didn't work. Good time anyhow. The ABC schtick is getting a bit old now. Especially since everything ties in with cross promotions. Bleagh.

Yikes! 50 minutes to go, I better take off my pants and hope for a trophy.

I've Got a Feeling.

Our pipes are frozen, and I'm drinking melted snow. I wish my father had kept the temperature a little higher.

I actually just finished a cutthroat game of monopoly in celebration of the new year, which has been here for a bit more than 2 hours here.

Hmm. Only about half of our fireworks were illegal. Does that count?

I was disgusted to see that only ABC seemed to be doing anything for New Year's in StL... nobody was even covering the fireworks down by the Arch. The closest anybody else came was a wimpy little ticker thing on Fox, which was showing reality TV of some dubious caliber right up 'til midnight.

Wow. I wonder how long ago our German and Finnish members made the countdown.

My empathy goes towards Brussels, they had to close the celebration due to a terrorist threat.
