Top 10 Reasons to Sleep Through New Years Eve

I originally posted my list at YoPress, but I thought it was kind of funny so I decided to share it here. Hope you enjoy, let me know if I missed anything.

10. Won’t be difficult to wake up with the kids in the morning

9. No unfriendly hangover to wake up to

7. No need to wear those cheap hats and play the annoying whistles

6. Don’t have to worry about crowded places

5. You won’t freeze to death! It’s 30 degrees in San Diego!

4. You have a big day of drinking ahead of you!

3. No need for any new years resolutions

2. No annoying countdowns, like Tila Tequila on MTV

Can you think of any other reasons to sleep through New Years and just skip it?

    Matthew, I’ve always hated the forced joviality of New Year. I prefer to celebrate occasion which are personal to me eg our wedding anniversary.

    Well, I basically agree. But what I do is a bit of a compromise. New Year’s is occuring all over the world almost 40 times before it’s all said and done.

    I will celebrate an earlier time zone than where I am actually staying. I moved around alot before, so it’s pretty easy to celebrate another time zone. It’s kind of like cheering for your old home team even though you moved away.

    Lots of websites now like the one above that let you join in their party no matter where you are. ))))

    I usually stay at home for new years and have a few drinks there. Went out one year and the only difference from any other night out was the prices of things seemed to have shot up!!

    People you know that it took hours to get a cab to take you to the bash-of-the-year yet you go out in sub-freezing weather with your evening dresses and maybe just maybe the guy has a suit coat (probably a tropical blend and not all wool that might keep you warm for maybe 5 minutes) and you in your drunken stupor will try and cram your entire entourage into 1 cab (need a seatbelt for every passenber, sorry) and don’t tell the driver the list of address’s to go to so he (being a professional) can think for a second and plan a speedy route to get you all in and out ASAP so he can get back to getting more irate customers (hey I’t COLD out here and we’re freezing)

    Ride on my hood I don’t care… my doors are locked for a reason i.e. I’m transporting transplant or other stat medical stuff from 1 hostpital to another… or on a call to pick up the passengers from a RIDE stop (driver charged with DUI)

    PLEASE if you have ANY inkling that you’re gonna puke LET the driver know… Puking in his cab not only costs you the price of a seat cleaning but it TOTALLY screws up the rest of his night.. the $100 you may be charged is peanuts compared to his potential lost income.

    Common people can’t you go to a pub within crawling distance of home or your friends home?
