Pyramid party

If you thought Las Vegas was the glitz capital of the world, think again. For 12 hours, beginning at sundown on New Year's Eve, the first Overproduced Millennium Event award will go to...Egypt.

Yes, the land of the Pharaohs will host a multi-media spectacle the likes of which hasn't been seen since Cher.

At midnight on Dec. 31, a 30-foot gilded pyramid will be stuck up on the cropped top of the Great Pyramid as a laser light show plays off the historic landscape and fireworks burst overhead. Meanwhile, a 12-hour opera will run through the night on a 215,000-square-foot stage built to hold a cast of 1,000.

Egypt's Culture Ministry coughed up nearly $10 million for this extravaganza, which will be televised live to 50 countries around the globe.

I think I'll call my cable company. I'll be home that night.
