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!
