    I was supposed to be back home in Los Angeles by 9:30PM, then heading to some sundry parties, but I had to cancel my flight for familial reasons. Thus I'll be spending NYE (my least favorite holiday to spend with my parents) back at my childhood home. Bah.

    Tonight a man in a van will arrive, pick me and my drums up and take me to an as yet undisclosed location in Edinburgh where I will (inappropriately, perhaps) play rock, funk and hip-hop beats for an evening of ceilidh dancing for drunken Scottish revellers. For this I shall be paid a large amount of the currency of the realm in used, non-sequential banknotes. I see fine ales and single malts in my imminent future. It's work, but not as we know it.

    And it's called Hogmanay all you sassenach bastards.

    Love you really,

    S.

    Living the rock & roll lifestyle here. Home alone, drinking inadvisable quantities of Jack Daniels and headbanging to my personal ultimate playlist of doom. This is definitely the best option - I am at my parents house, in a village in the far north of Scotland. Were I to show my face in the local pub tonight, looking like I do ("long hair?! on a man?!??!"), the consequences would not be pleasant.

    A happy New Year to you all, by the way (by my clock, anyway).

    Just spent it. The usual way, watching Jools Holland's Hootenanny on TV and avoiding the rest of humanity.

    I never go out on 'amateurs night'.

    Just about to leave for the best kind of New Year's Party: 17 brands, spanning nine types, of alcohol, six people and my buddy's basement, where we shall watch Blade Runner, Full Metal Jacket and Apocalypse Now, then discuss our hopes and dreams for the mass break-down of society, and the panic and glorious debauchery that would follow. The night may also include some drunken boffering.

    It shall be epic.

    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    Redwynd ,why am I just finding out about "boffering" now! This sounds like nerd Valhalla. Clockwork Orange would fit well into that

    I will most likely be spending tonight with my new projector and an Akira Kurosawa film festival.

    I am no big drinker(I much prefer high quality drugs) but I have a collection of good liquor in those tiny airplane ottles that I have been collecting all year.
    I have never tried Cognac so I am looking forward to trying the Remy Martin. I also have a couple mini bottles of Glennfiddich and some Chivas so I can try to judge for myself
    whether or not a good blend is better than a equivalents single malt. I am starting out with some Bacardi and diet coke right now though.

    playing Mario Galaxy, hanging out with friends, and a shot glass pressed against my lips. A way to go into it all.
