    Everyone post at midnight (or as close to midnight as you can get to your comp :baby04: ) in their time zone. (Right now, it's only 6:45 where I live...)

    Time check... it's now 9:26 on my computer clock.

    ETA: I never noticed before, but there's 9 minutes difference in the time on my computer and the time on this post.

    Auld Lang Syne


    Should auld acquaintance be forgot
    And never brought to mind?
    Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
    And auld lang syne?
    Chorus

    For auld lang syne, my jo,
    For auld lang syne,
    We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet,
    For auld lang syne.

    And surely ye'll be your pint-stoup,
    And surely I'll be mine;
    And we'll tak' a cup o' kindness yet,
    For auld lang syne.
    For auld, etc.

    We twa hae run about the braes,
    And pou'd the gowans fine;
    But we've wander'd mony a weary fit,
    Sin' auld lang syne.
    For auld, etc.

    We twa hae paidl'd in the burn,
    Frae morning sun till dine;
    But seas between us braid hae roar'd.
    Sin' auld lang syne.
    For auld, etc.

    And there's a hand, my trusty fiere!
    And gie's a hand o' thine!
    And we'll tak' a right gud-wellie waught,
    For auld lang syne.
    For auld, etc.

    A translation from the Scots Independent

    auld;old lang;long syne;since

    auld lang syne ; days of long ago

    pint stowp ; tankard

    pou'd ; pulled

    gowans ; daisies

    mony ; many

    fitt ; foot

    paidl'd ; waded

    dine; dinner-time

    braid ; broad

    fiere ; friend

    willie-waught ; draught

    owresettin

    Should old friendship be forgot'
    And never remembered ?
    Should old friendship be forgotten,
    And days of long ago.

    And surely you will have your tankard !
    And surely I will have mine !
    And we will take a cup of kindness yet,
    For days of long ago'

    We two have run about the hills
    And pulled the daisies fine :
    But we have wandered many a weary foot
    Since days of long ago.

    We two have waded in the stream
    From dawn till dinner-time :
    But seas between us broad have roared
    Since days of long ago.

    And there's a hand my trusty friend !
    And give me a hand of thine !
    And we will take a large draught
    For days of long ago.

    wheeee...happy new year.

    Sure is starting out with a bang, my DH is p.o.'ed at me.

    I'm still not entirely sure what for. I think it's because it's been raining all day.
