Just before midnight, I was standing in a computer training room. Only, there wasn’t a clock in the room. So what do a bunch of IT geeks do in such a situation? We all pulled out our cell phones and watched them until they switched from 11:59 to 12:00.
NOBODY COUNTED DOWN TO THE NEW YEAR.
It was kind of like New Years in San Francisco with Laura and Maren only we completely MISSED midnight because the adults were sitting around TALKING.
Back to this New Year: working the 6pm-1am shift on New Year’s Eve is something I’ve ALWAYS wanted to do. FINALLY. It’s good to accomplish one of your dreams every now and then.
After the cell phones told us that it was the new year, the people around me started getting phone calls from their spouses. My spouse didn’t call. Stupid spouse. We all drank sparkling cider after that and ate a veggie tray. It lasted about 4 minutes. Then we went back to work.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
