Text for this comic I got from this blog I was pointed to recently. Honestly, it doesn’t actually matter to me if the tourist population of Times Square is kept to a minimum during New Year’s because I’m not going to be anywhere near there. In fact, I think the general rule is that no self respecting New Yorker is in Times Square during New Years even if it’s not 10 degrees outside. I think usually plans for New Year’s are either entirely laid back with friends at an apartment or going all out craziness to bars where you have no choice but to make friends with all your neighbors as you’re packing into bars and clubs like sardines. My preference is for the former.

Funniest thing about my New Year’s last year is that my friend’s TiVo was set to record South Park at midnight so the channel changed right before the countdown finished.
