Transcript VIEWPOINT Celebrate ihe New Year and your own personal foibles by D.L. MURPHY and MARIA MINICUCCI Phew! Congratulations are in order for everyone whose Christmas survival kit kicked in. Regardless of whether you went home for the holidays or not, you are sane, sober and any emotional scarring is becoming a distant memory. Enjoy the moment, yet another holiday hurdle is sneaking up ready to snatch away your hard-won victory. Yes, New Year's Eve is another one of those double-edged holidays. Below are our suggestions for those of us who are single, even if its just temporary because your beloved went home to his/her family. For everyone: Go to a late movie. You won't even notice midnight. If you are really lucky, that cute number in the seat next to you will notice midnight, and you'll get one very illicit kiss. Go to a fireworks display. I don't care how depressed you are; it will do you good. Pretend the fireworks are a metaphor for your life. Hell, understand that the fireworks are celebrating your life. Construct Voodoo dolls of all your exes. This should keep you very busy. For Hedonists: Make all your favorite goodies and indulge without having to share. Or, better yet, have all your favorite goodies delivered, Sharing them with the delivery person after sex is optional. Turn the evening over to your alter ego. Go wherever s/he takes you. Invite your imaginary playmate. You may want to discuss this with your therapist later. Go tohed before midnight. Take your imaginary playmate with you. For Type A personalities: Take this opportunity to catch up on your work (and steal a march on that guy in the next cubicle). Catch up on your coworkers' work. Be prepared to explain exactly why you thought that was a good idea. Beep your tax accountant so you can start obsessing about your tax return now. Fill out your Franklin-Covey planner for the next year. Do your spring-cleaning. Spend the evening browsing catalogs for your 2001 business wardrobe. Go to bed before midnight. Dream about spending your new budget. For Type B personalities: Do what you usually do. Don't do what you usually don't do. Don't care about it. Don't put it off, this year lose your new planner early. Shovel a path to the bed. Go to bed before midnight. Vow to actually change the sheets tomorrow. For introverts: Pretend your are an extrovert in your favorite chat room. Spend the evening initiating cybersex. Read your journal. Try to get your journal published. Beep your therapist. Go to bed before midnight. For extroverts: Howl at the moon. Make sure there are witnesses. Have pizza delivered to all of your enemies. Have a pity party, invite everyone you know who is single, even if they are sin- gle-for-the-moment. Invite everyone for a birthday party. It doesn't matter if it's your birthday, so long as you get to celebrate you. Crank up the music so everyone thinks you are having a grand party. Go to bed before midnight. Celebrate yourself. For cat people: Buy your cat's favorite treat and serve it in the new dish s/he got for Christmas. Spend the evening playing an intoxicating game of catnip mousey. Note: it should be intoxicating for the cat, not you. Other substances should be required for your intoxication. Be smug about not having to take the cat out for a walk. Go to bed before midnight (take your favorite pussy with you). For dog people: Buy you dog's favorite treat and serve it in the new dish s/he got for Christmas. Spend the evening watching your companion chew up all of your Christmas presents. Be smug that you have an excuse to get out of the house, even if it is cold, raining and windy. Go to bed before midnight (take a dog with you). But really folks, there are some options for you. Enjoy yourself. Happy New Year! LASTYe&R.. YzKBUg THIS NfeAR...
