Happy, Happy



It's a new year, it's a new decade.  How did you ring it in last night?  A quiet evening at home with a loved one?  Out bar-hopping until the big countdown at midnight?

Ten years ago, actor/comedian Jim Carrey rang in 2000 in a special way.  Curious?  If you found your celebration lacking somewhat last night in the enthusiasm department, you may enjoy this.  Oh...and Happy New Year!

I was so depressed about not being invited to your party, I just went to bed!

CatLady: And may you CL. Happy new year.

tfy: But of course you were invited. Too bad you didn't make it. Joel K was the life of the party. What a mad man.

That picture of the guy with drug induced euphoria playing the concertina reminds me I should really get out the old concertina and practice a bit... maybe I could get something together in time for Jules' next Out of Tune Tuesday celebration.

P.S. I would have been the life of the party, had I only found your house last night. Gave up around 9 and went home to bed.

CatLady: Gee, the place was rockin' so much I hadn't noticed. Must be why we had so much DDP left over. Then, who was that woman Joel was all over?

Isn't he still alive? Jim Carrey I mean. It's a wonder. Mine was good. Fun. Not many drunks. Only a few loud people with little fireworks. Quite frankly, it was boring come to think of it.
nonamedufus said…
Don: He's still alive. It's just his career that's dead.
Actually I saw Yes Man recently, and it was pretty good. So there. :P

Anyhow, that part about "A quiet evening at home with a loved one?" Yep, that was the missus and me with a bottle of Red Cat wine (still three quarters of it left, we're lightweights, what can we say?).

Hope your New Year is filled with drunken buffoonery. Okay, not really, but just thought I'd say that...happy New Year, you Canadian dufus. :)

Wow Nomie that was quite a par-tay we had last night, eh?

Oh and shhh but as MeMe and I were driving home from your party, she confessed... she and Joel HOOKED UP!

Nothing like starting the New Year with a bunch of gossipy crap!

Ha!

Happy New Year Nomie! You're the best Nomie I've ever known! *smile*

B.S. Thanks for video, my comedic approach of silly and stupid was reinforced. Cuz I've got lots of silly and stupid in this Quirky noggin! Ha!

UR: Hey, whatever works. You missed a wild one here with all our bloggin' buddies. All the best for the new year.

Quirks: Did you get salsa in that eye, from picking your eyebrow?

That was Me-Me?! Holy poop. There are things about that gal I never knew before. What a shameless hussy.

I watched Kathy Griffin humiliate Anderson Cooper till 9:00 (California time) Then the ball dropped and so did I. Hey -- when it's midnight in NYC, that's good enough for me.

jayne: I just couldn't watch all that inane chat. I made it to 9 pm est before falling asleep...whoopie!

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
