Sundown on Sunset… and on 2006

newyearsla.JPGIf you still don’t know how you’re ringing in the New Year, LA.com has some suggestions (yes, this is the first time FBLA has ever refered people to LA.com for anything other than a punchline. But if you don’t have NYE plans this late in the game, then you deserve to read that site).

As for other stuff happening on Dec. 31:

Schwarzenegger will leave the hospital on Sunday. FBLA is worried that the image of our governor taking his oath of office on crutches will serve as some kind of foreboding metaphor. But, then, FBLA is off our meds.

Los Angeles displays its utter lameness, with the Universal CityWalk’s 13th Annual New Year’s Eve Bash. According to the press release: it’ll be a “wall-to-wall party in “traditional Times Square fashion.” Traditional. Times Square. Fashion. None of these words should be employed to describe this event. But if you must go, it starts at 9.

Of course, you don’t have to leave your house (or, more likely, your parent’s house) to celebrate the new year. YouTube is hosting a party online.

Hmm. CityWalk doesn’t sound so lame anymore.

Whatever you elect to do, do it safely and have a good time. It’s been a great year — see you back in 2007. Happy New Year!
