There were the usual fireworks before and after the stroke of midnight.
It began mildly right before 9:30pm while I was lying down in the middle of watching a good movie.
I drifted off to sleep shortly awakening at five minutes before the New Year hit.
I arose, while my television still played, I had missed the movie I was initially into, exiting out of the third one that began to play.
The second film ended as I got up.
I will resume the other movie later today after I go back to sleep.
I cooked a satisfying meal earlier in the evening on the Eve so all I wanted was some mandarin oranges.
From around 2am to now I have been watching entertaining episodes of the 2002 remake of the Twilight Zone series hosted by Forest Whitaker.
The series is all new to me again compared to when I watched it years ago as I vaguely remember most of the chilling/thrilling short stories- if I even saw them all.
It is 4:30am as I write this moment.
The fireworks were not too bad. After midnight is when there was a continuance of blasts, but it has been very quiet for a few hours now.
