Speaking of the Twilight Zone a few questions down, from where came the New Year's Eve marathon tradition? I know SyFy (ugh) has it now, but I believe I remember watching it on WPIX way back when. That may have been 4th of July, though. Anyone know it's origins or what year it started?

New Years Eve @ home Filter: Lets say you and your partner decide to stay at home for new years and you have pooled your money together to have $400 to blow on the whole evening (food, alcohol, general supplies/decorations/presents/whatever). How would YOU spend that budget? Describe your fantasy new years eve under that budget. Best suggestion wins a cookie. Additional requirements within.... [more inside]

My partner and I want to make New Years Eve a special night. We're both in our 30's and the appeal of doing a rowdy alcohol soaked party blowout is wearing off, so instead we're aiming for classy and romantic, just the two of us. What should we do to make it feel more like a vacation rather than a staycation, and what should we do to make the night extra special? We're looking to maximize the romantic schmultz. [more inside]

I'm going to a New Year's party. The theme is the 00 decade, and I can dress as any event/ figure from this decade.
Ideas for something clever/ fun/ cute?
I'm a short blonde girl, if it helps.

I am throwing a small New Year's Eve party, and would like to be able to show the ball dropping in Times Square -- and optionally more of the programing around that moment -- despite not having a television signal into my home. I've a large LCD monitor (42"), a laptop with an HDMI input into said TV, a Windows PC, and an XBox 360. What's the best way to go about setting something up for my guests and I to watch?

I want to go to someplace cool and exciting with my friends for New Years.. I live in the LA area (Santa Monica) and would like to stay within 15 miles of the city. I'm fairly new to the area--having just moved here this summer--but still know a bit. I'm 22 so I still have the energy.
