Times Square New Years

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
If you missed it, the song that led out of 2008 was John Lennon's Imagine, and the song that led NYC into 2009 was (you guessed it) Frank Sinatra's New York, New York.

The crowd sang along on the out, but they seemed too busy to sing along with Frank.

I think I might go out to see what Ukiah New Years looks like.  I still have almost three hours.

It's gotten progressively more surreal as I moved west.  When I lived on the east coast, it was midnight.  Then when I moved to Dallas, it was only eleven when it was midnight there.  Then in Albuquerque, it was only ten.  Now, it's just nine o'clock, and pretty much the entire rest of the world has already celebrated (and many have woken up to the next day, actually).
