New Year's Eve -- Overrated?

    I am 36 with two young kids (5 and 2) and have been married for 12 years. So, needless to say, New Year's Eve is basically making pizza at home, having a few brews and toasting with bubbly apple juice with the kids when the clock strikes 12.
    And, yes, Dick Clark will be on my TV.
    But someone asked me today what my favorite N.Y.'s memory was and I was stumped. Sure, I partied back in the day and took advantage of any day designated for partying, but there wasn't one of those touching or laughable memories that one would expect.
    So, is (as I suspect) New Year's overrated, or am I just lame?

    You're not lame.

    Most folks are like you -- they were too drunk to remember their good New Year's Eve memories.

    Nope. It is entirely over-rated.

    I can't believe you just said that, TP. Especially when there are people like Drew Barrymore making movies.

    Completely and utterly over-rated.

    Amateur nights (NYE, Fat Tuesday, St. Patrick's Day, night before Thanksgiving) always are.

    Overrated. Though my kids (5 & 4) are geeked up because we're letting them stay up.

    You're not lame. You sound like a family man, that's all.

    If she went out on New Year's Eve, would the combination make for the ultimate posterchild for being overrated?

    OMG, the consequences would be overwhelming to a mere mortal.
