All alone for New Year's Eve...

I've just gone through the "What to do on New Year's Eve?" and the "Alone at Christmas" threads, but what about being alone on New Year's Eve?
While I have been invited to events and have friends around in the local area, I have declined all invites so far. This holiday season has been more hectic and overwhelming than I had expected, and I just don't want to get dressed up to go out.
So, what can I do? I don't want to sleep through the ball dropping at midnight, but watching it on TV and drinking by myself seems too sad. Any suggestions? Ideally, I would love to do something:
- ritual-like, or ceremonial
- to bid adieu to 2008, which was a crappy year for me
- that I won't feel silly doing alone
Thanks for the suggestions!
