Ah, New Year... Time for Drunken Calls from Complete Strangers...

At 9:44pm Seattle time, I got a call from New Jersey. I know a couple of people in New Jersey, but this was not one of them. She slurred out a name that I think was Carol. Can't be entirely sure. I said hello a couple of times, and the third time she slurred out the name, I realized it might be a name, and suggested to her that she had a wrong number. She politely, very slurred, apologized and wished me a very happy New Year. I wished her a happy New Year as well, and hoped she got home safely as she hung up...

They seem to be already having a "happy" new year. I'm guessing they were calling the 201 area code and got yours instead.

Happy New Year to you and yours.

You are lucky. I had to wait until 12:30 am for mine.
