I liked that it was made before I joined, though I won't be surprised if this gets locked soon.

Or maybe it's just a joke I'm missing.

Oh.  :-D

I thought it was a thing that the new year is always supposed to be better than the old year. I was stuck on that train of thought.

Not entirely true, as it is dependent on time zone. I was the first to create a thread in 2019, almost six hours before yours when most of you were still in 2018 :sombrero: (And as of this post only Hawaii remains in 2018 IIRC). Also the first post in my true time zone was this one by oscar, at the 10th bong of the Puerta del Sol clock in Madrid, Spain:
If you were sufficiently determined, you could celebrate New Year's on the international border between Yukon Territory (Pacific time zone) and Alaska (Alaska time zone). There are a few places within wide "no man's land" zones between border stations where you are unlikely to be hassled by customs agents. Indeed, one on the Alaska Highway has a bench where you can sit with one butt cheek in Pacific time and the other in Alaska time.

Of course, these spots are not only in the middle of nowhere, but tonight you'd be freezing your ass off (midnight wind chill just below 0F).

I gave up on public New Years' celebrations years ago (sometimes friends would invite me to a house party, but that hasn't happened lately). Past my bedtime, and I hate crowds.

PS:
No one cares.

I do, due to time zones.

"Football", a quite ambiguous word for me. I assume "association" football instead of "American" football.

I might just put a nice steak in my cast iron skillet with some real butter, salt, black pepper, and some garlic powder; & "blacken" it to a nice medium. That will go wonderfully well with the cabbage & black-eye peas I intend to cook today.  :clap:
