    I'm sitting in chat and playing Baldur's Gate. The way that God would have wanted.

    Karaoke at home with flatmates, interspersed with lots of drinking and playing an MMO while watching a Let's Play of Temple of Elemental Evil.

    Jeez Sorvo, you should multitask more. :p

    Finishing up on a foto-album, watching a Just Cause 2 let's play while my wife talks to her family through new year (in another time zone), and then sleeping through the actual fireworks.

    Trying a homebrew dungeon crawl, using AD&D 2nd edition rules with four friends. We had a blast, and split the loot with little to no loss of blood. ;-)

    One campaign I DMed was centered around the idea of that. We never did finish it though.

    We were in the hospital from the 28th to the 2nd, so yea that was my new year. My partner was delivering our baby boy and there were complications so she had to have an emergency cesarean. Both mum and baby are doing great now, apart from the fact the little one has a tendency to be up crying hysterically from midnight to 3am almost every night like clockwork!

    I wouldn't worry about it, there will be many more things that you will discover you were naive in. Like 100% of the parents, I think.

    Like I've been discovering for the past few months, that there are many, many, many different colds that exist, and that little kids seem to catch all of them. And that I seem to catch most of them as well.

    Course theres also the first crawl, first walk, first roll over, first word, etc.

    New cats. had to stay close, but no problem.

    In the Netherlands we are allowed to light fireworks on 31-12 from 18:00 until 00:20. Mostly we have a small war zone after 24:00 in that timeslot. And i like fireworks. I like it a lot. Everybody likes it to some extend, but some use illegal far too heavy fireworks. And of course drunk idiots or people who cannot read the instructions. When you buy legal fireworks, wear glasses and follow the instruction, crossing the street is more dangerous.

    Ofcourse the Dutch taxman makes it expensive. And American friends, you have no right to complain about taxes when you see our rates.

    New cats slept trough everything. As for the fireworks, very foggy, and sunday in my very religious village. Next year.

    --

    Had chickenpox at the age of 28. Hell of a week.
