Happy New Year!

In some parts of the world, it's already 2007, but it'll be Old Year here for nearly 15 more hours.

Just like Christmas, a CFSer's New Year's celebration requires some adjustments from the norm.  My "party" involves just one good friend, not a houseful, and I'll spend most of the party lying on the couch. 

We will, every hour on the hour, switch over to CNN to celebrate with another time zone and, frankly, will probably celebrate for the last time with my parents in New York (which is 9 PM my time).

We have a variety of cheese and crackers, chips and guacamole, baby carrots and dip, and a lasagne.  Although I do have a small bottle of champagne in the fridge, which I got as a gift a couple years ago, more likely we'll be popping a bottle of sparkling apple juice at whatever time we decree it to be "midnight".

For New Year's Day dinner, there's already a pot roast in the crockpot (I find it takes 2 days for it to reach perfection).
