1st January 2011 - New Year's Day.

I've never been a fan of new year celebrations and have no interest in it whatsoever.

What's always annoyed me about it is the fact that it's always celebrated on the night before and involves lots of drinking then watching Big Ben on television strike twelve then cheering out. In fact it's twelve o'clock the very moment Big Ben starts to chime so by the time it's struck twelve it's actually well over a minute after.

I do make a new year's resolution though, normally a list of things, and for the most part stick to them. It's not that I hate the concept of the new year it's that I hate the way it's celebrated and I hate that Old Lang Syne song which doesn't appear to have anything to do with new year but is always sung.

There were a lot of fireworks this year as usual but there were also lots of lights that appeared to be floating in the night's sky. I think they may have been Chinese lanterns. I hope that becomes a new trend because I don't like celebrations being the same all the time.

I could also hear loud music then realised it was the theme tune of Tomb Raider The Cradle of Life. I think someone else hates new year so they had their television turned up loud.

Here's a photo of Corrine and Chantel celebrating on the TV channel called Babeworld (Sky 908). It's not the usual thing I watch but there is nothing watchable on any of the other channels at this time of year. It's slightly naughty so be warned.
