I'm planning on being in the pool at 8 am for my laps, and at a friend's open house later in the day.
    Excellent plans!

    I did Times Square one time when I first moved there. It was worth doing once. I'd never do it again though. Like Cathy mentioned, there's no restrooms. And you can't go anywhere for hours. And the year I went it wasn't even that cold. I can only imagine what it was like last night.

    It sounds totally miserable to me. It would be a way for someone to punish me. Make me go there instead of to jail for a night.

    Rest of the evening's tally:

    One car crash, alcohol-involved, airlift required.

    One little old lady at home with a walker-related trip-and-fall, fixed walker and made her tea.

    We wound up going to a fairly new great farm-to-table restaurant in Princeton. Sat at the bar to eat (hard to get reservations last minute) and chatted up a few really nice folks. Dinner was excellent.

    Then home to watch a painful hour of Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen. Never thought I'd want to see Kathy Griffin, but I was bored beyond tears but vigilant about falling asleep, waiting for the ball to drop. Danced with DH to Imagine, called the kids/they called us. Nice evening. But if DS wasn't there, I would have dreamed my way through the ball drop.

    WE usually invite 2 couples over for dinner and cards. But this year we are getting ready to go out of town for my DIL's surgery.

    I hope all goes well with her surgery and your trip there.

    I suspect they will, once the Sheriff and Prosecutor are done with them :-(
