Are you tired of hearing about New Year's Eve yet? The Daily News reports on another little corner of the celebration, where some overachieving high school seniors will aid Mayor Bloomberg in dropping the ball tomorrow. Bill and Hillary Clinton helped him out last year, and often celebrities are invited — but this year it's all about the kids. Karnisa Aya, a student government president at the High School for American Studies at Lehman College in the Bronx, told the paper, "It's still sort of surreal. I think it will be pretty cold, but it will be a really fun time. The fact that we get to meet the mayor is pretty cool too." She was chosen through a system where principals from twelve public schools made a list of top students.
Meanwhile, even if you aren't helping drop the ball, Diddy is making sure you get home safe tomorrow — the NY Post reports that about $100,000 worth of $15 debit cards and single-ride MetroCards will be dispersed as part of the CIROC Safe Rides Home program he supports. If you want to get your hands on one, you'll have to head to Times Square between 8 p.m. and midnight.
