We resisted. We said it would never happen. Objected and were determined. Not. Never. But.... eventually we folded and yes this year we will once again have a New Year's Eve Party. True it will be a party-lite, partylet or dwarf-party (meaning no external DJ), but a party non the less. How did it happen you may well ask. It was not due to public pressure, well not only. I figured that seeing as we had a party last year when things were looking bleak indeed, it seemed fitting to celebrate this year. And it's going to be 2012 nearly a great palindrome of a year (only one hundred years to go). Besides, one has to fight off the inertia that comes with age. So guys, lets go for it!
