Most memorable New Years
For the most part - one New Years is like the last.

Do you have one that stood out??


Me - 2000 

1145 PM

I left the bar where I was working as one of the bartenders. ( I planned this in advance with the owner), went out, fired up the 1988 Harley Low Rider Police model I owned at the time - and headed out into the 20f night.

I was just cresting the hill on the north of our property, when they set off the fireworks at a nearby ski resort.

So, I started the millennium in the saddle.

New Years Eve on Santorini, 1975. First NYE I was allowed to drink since 1972.

My wedding anniversary is on December 31st. So there’s that.

There’s also New Year’s Eve 1999. At midnight, when it rolled to the year 2000, the local TV station went to static for 30 seconds. Excellent prank.

2001.  Got kissed by Sinead O'Connor. Nothing special - she was kissing everyone she could reach.

1989.

I was near the end of my first (12 month-long) overseas tour with the USAF in South Korea. It ended the way it started - with such wonderful decadence.

I had no idea how much my first experience outside the US would grow me. I was just a different person after that year. Some of the growth was in the right direction but much of it wasn't.

Looking back, that experience convinced me that the human lifespan is a tragedy. We need WAY more time to get our shit together and figure out who we are. At least I do.
Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

2005. I was really fucking sick that New Year’s Eve. Literally every time I took so much as a sip of water, I’d start puking it up within minutes. Somehow, I was well enough to take partake of the standard Milk toast in a champagne glass that’s a family tradition without puking, but that was the first time it would work that day. Honestly, if that went on for a few more days, I probably wouldn’t be here today (what with not being able to keep down so much as a sip of water), but somehow, I was fine the next day. To this day, I have no fucking idea what was wrong with me.
I was born with a gift of laughter and a sense that the world is mad.

1982. I had bought my wife a skimpy little outfit. She put it on and when I saw it, it was off. Must've been on for all of 15 minutes before I saw it. Started the New Year with a bang. Tongue
I never thought I'd live long enough to become a grumpy old bastard. Here I am, killing it!

I was reflecting last night about how many countries I'd spent NYE in. Came up to fourteen. My private yacht club really came through for me.
