New Year Greetings

Call me boring, but I am really looking forward to a quiet night in, knowing that nobody is likely to phone because everyone I know will be out celebrating.

In fact, I have followed the example of Joe Cocker in his song "Dangerous Mood":

I parked the car down the street,

And I unplugged the phone,

So it would look just like

Ain't nobody home.

Nevertheless, I haven't quite reached the stage of grumpy-old-man-ness which adopts the philosophy that if I'm not partying, why should anyone else be? So I, together with Elaine, would like to wish you an enjoyable night, and a happy and prosperous new year. Let the Noughties begin!
