Staying home on New Year's Eve

Mrs. Marathon Pundit is working tonight, and I'm home with Little Marathon Pundit and one of her friends. So I'm staying home on New Year's Eve.

That's not a problem--I'm watching the Bears Packers game, and I'm missing the aggravation I dealt with last year on New Year's Eve.

LMP and I went to First Night Evanston. As you'll read on this New Year's Day post, I was greeted by North Shore anti-war protesters ensconced on a table adjacent to the spot where I purchased tickets to the event. As we left with our tickets, we were "serenaded" by those World Can't Wait Drive Out the Bush Regime idiots. (Couldn't they let it rest one day?)

The happenings for First Night were sprawled across downtown Evanston, so shuttle buses were provided to ticket holders. Little Marathon Pundit and I got on one, but we had to quickly disembark--because a woman in a wheelchair blocked the because the vehicle didn't have handicapped accessibility.

It's good to be home.
