Your essay was about your worst New Year's Eve, so what was your best New Year's Eve?
New Year's 2012 was low-key but still fun. I met up with some friends for a movie and an early dinner, then relaxed at home, avoiding the crowds and setting more realistic expectations than I did a few years ago.
What's the weirdest thing you keep in your refrigerator?Whitening gel for my teeth (it's supposed to keep in fresh in the fridge for up to a year).
What advice do you have for people traveling on New Year's Eve?
Expect delays so have your electronics fully charged and allow extra time. Be VERY careful to double-check the year on your travel documents so you don't wind up nearly stranded like I did. And carry a little extra cash, just in case.
