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!

May you approach the coming year with as much enthusiasm as Jim Carrey!
Hugs!

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.

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.

Twittercide is Painless

Hey, don't forget to stop by my caption contest - Pause, Ponder and Pun - and leave a caption. You might win exciting prizes. Well, no prizes really but significant web cred to have been awarded the I Be Hangin' With Dufus citation. Oh yeah, baby! Meanwhile on with today's post...

The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in.

Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All. (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song)





Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress...


I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparently it has as many feet…

Exercising My Rights (And My Lefts)

I confess, I'm not the most energetic of people. After all I'm a guy whose Facebook status reads "I'm not lazy. I'm just energy efficient". In fact, few people know but if you look up couch potato in the dictionary it has my picture.

At my house, we're so lazy even my cat is a couch potato.

But I've decided it's high time to do something about it. I've decided to undertake cross-country skiing. And, speaking of which, after our little session this morning, an undertake-r is something I could have really used. We're quite fortunate where we live. The ski trails are a five-minute walk (more exercise!). But miracle of miracles, I stayed upright the whole time. Putting the skis on was interesting.
"You put your right foot in, you take your right foot out..."
The trail itself was gorgeous, with hardly anyone else out at 9:30 in the morning. Which worked out fine for me. I didn't have to pull over to let faster skiers (read: everyone e…

Here's something unusual for an urban centre. In the heart of Canada's capital is a huge block of open land (400 hectares) called The Central Experimental Farm. It was established in 1886 (thats a long time for an "experiment") as the central research station for the federal Department of Agriculture. When I first entered the public service in the mid 80s (that's the 1990s) I worked at Agriculture in the Sir John Carling Building located on the farm.
