So, I have always LOVED. New Year’s Eve. I’m not one to go out into the craziness though. I prefer to stay in and have my own party with DH. I used to like watching the ball drop and kissing at midnight. Its something I look forward to all year.
I know how petty/lame this sounds, BUT, I hate watching Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin! I feel like I can’t enjoy watching the ball drop because they are so annoying! I was so hoping we’d get some fresh faces hosting this year. I actually like Anderson Cooper any other time. He just seems really out of place hosting this type of thing. Kathy Griffin is just such an obnoxious, attention seeking media-whore.
Am I alone here?

@Bridey77: I LOVE Anderson Cooper. Not a big fan of Kathy Griffin though. I won’t be watching though – I live in Asia so it will be 2014 here long before it airs in the US!

@Bridey77: my FI told me they’re best friends in real life? I would have never guessed since AC seems immensely uncomfortable sitting next that Kathy. I like them both, but not together.

I’m pretty sure Seacrest is still hosting as he’s done since Dick Clark died….

@Sassygrn: I forgot all about Ryan Seacrest…I could handle just him…..I’m sick of the other two. I really liked Dick Clark too!

I don’t even know who that guy is.

Yeah, that’s one of many other channels, so it is easy to avoid. #themoreyouknow

My family always watches favorite movies on NYE and pauses for like five minutes to watch the bal drop. It works for us. 🙂

@Nostawyn: Yeah, I think I’ll stick to the twilight zone marathon on syfy and just tune in like 3 minutes before midnight.

@Bridey77: oh god, my SO is going to flip. She LOVES Kathy Griffin. I can’t stand her….but I do think anderson cooper is just adorable. I don’t think either are fit to host something like NYRE though.
We’ll still watch unless we actually find something cool & fun to do. I adore watching the ball drop

@Jbbee: that’s good to know. I always watch seacrest….bc I ALWAYS watched dick clark.
My dream was to get to new york for the ball drop before dick clark died. *sigh* I knew it wouldn’t happen but it still makes me sad
