This year, I was able to sleep through New Years.  My guess, it was just too damn cold. Normally I get woken up by the fireworks going off in the neighborhood. Not that I'm complaining mind you, I just roll over and make sure it's not gunfire. When I don't hear any screaming, or "Bitch, you shot me!". I go back to sleep.  I feel if I lived in Metro Manila, I might complain. Or, I'd think we were getting bombed.
