44 minutes past the new year here, thought I'd drop in to wish everyone a fantastic 2004. Hope it brings you everything you want and more.

I second that. It is now 3 1/2 hours past the new year here in Philadelphia, I am completely out of champagne, the music is off, and my living room is trashed. Way to welcome in 2004!

Have a great one people!

Happy New Year! The fireworks here were pretty much embarrassing compared to somewhere like Sydney, but I went to watch them anyway. Best wishes for 2004!

Y'all can just stop typing so loud, please. Oy. We went to Downtown Chicago for the fireworks at Navy Pier, the weather was fine, the skyline spectacular, the Whiskey was flowing, and the steaks at Ditka's were to die for. Speaking of dying, little tip. Don't change the amount of whiskey and/or sour mix in your order anytime after 12am. Why, you ask? Because, by that time, the bartenders are just as toasted as you are, that's why.

On a more somber note, security was super-tight, and it's a tad hard to party when the SWAT team is setting up 10 feet away. A grim reminder.

Happy 2004 to all...I'm off to buy more Excedrin. :)

I caught them on TV. You braved the crowds for a fifteen-minute fireworks show? Are you sure you hadn't been drinking before you left home?

I'm getting too old to stay out all New Year's Eve and ramble home at 5 AM. Of course, this doesn't stop me from staying out all New Year's Eve and rambling home at 5 AM, because I'm an idiot.

Thanks all! I've been skipping threads and I just got the e-mail from ntc that told me she posted in here. Guess I shouldn't be lazy and should read everything from now on.

Hope everyone had a wonderful New Year's.

Congrats Merlynn! It's a strange coincidence, my sister also just had a baby. He was a month early, and looks like a three-month old. God, she was the size of an oil tanker last month and wanted to get him out of her so bad she'd drive over this really bumpy road every day hoping her water would break.

Also, Happy 2004 everybody!

OK, ya'll. Just curious who here has dated someone younger than themselves?

My new boyfriend is 18 (I'm 24, turning 25 in March), and it's fairly serious. Majorly serious. Probably because he doesn't act like he's 18 (fuck, he's probably more mature than me).

It's working fine so far, and the age thing hasn't been an issue. Even his parents love me. But any pitfalls etc I should be aware off?

I've only seen benefits so far. :P

Well, x I don't know where you are from but...a possible problem is the drinking age.

I was 19 when I started dating my then 24 year old boyfriend. I got along quite well with his parents and friends. He got along with mine. But, the problem we ran into when we first started going out was lack of places to hang out. His friends were all his age or older; my friends were all my age or younger. And because of the stupid 21 drinking age, we always had a lack of places to hang out. It seems stupid, but not having anywhere to go kind of put a damper on things. Going to the movies, out for coffee or staying home gets really old after awhile. We started spending more time apart- especially weekends. It just made us argue because we never had anything to do.

Other than this one pitfall, every thing worked out well. My boyfriend was older, but we seem to be in the same groove maturity wise. I was just starting school, he was finishing. But now he's established in a career and I'm about to graduate. And of course, I'm now 21 so I can actually go out with him and our friends. Things are great now. It hardly feels like there is an age gap at all.
