I'd been cruising channels to see who was doing Times Square and saw the end of LOTR. They'd done a marathon on that channel, and I saw the opening lore to the third Mummy movie, the one set in China. Next thing I knew, it was 2016 by twenty minutes.
So, uh, Happy New Year, I guess.
UPDATE: Finally found CNN and watching Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin getting loopy waiting for Mountain Time's 2016.0.
