For amusement on New Year's Eve, I began following the Times Square Ball on Twitter.
And there were posts all day long.
Here are some of the Tweets from atop Times Square as the day progressed:
"We need you to rehearse." 'Seriously, 100+ years, I got this. I'm watching "The View.'
"Just destroyed a 143-egg omlette. Always eat a good breakfast, people."
"Is it midnight yet? #vacation"
"Time for a nap"
"That coat doesn't work on you, lady"
"I could go for some Fetuccini Alfredo"
"Anyone have a huge ski mask thing?"
"Great. Here come the pigeons. Always thinking they are entitled to the best spot""Enough with the fireworks already. Trying to chill out for a bit."
It was just a ball. Happy 2014!
