Subject: New Years Eve at SINSULL's
From: SINSULL
Date: 19 Dec 09 - 10:46 PM

Brett and Wakana will be in town so it's dinner (probably a buffet), music, breakfast, share some joy, commiserate over some ot the crap and move into 2010 together.

I will do Honey Ham and potatoes. Deborah and Tom offered to take care of veggies. Jacqui is making pies and hopefully will remember a plum pudding.

We will be about 20 so I don't know if we can manage a sit down.
We need a salad, bread, cheese, desserts, and of course wine and champagne.

So far if weather and health allow, we have me, Brett and Wakana, Jacqui and Kendall, Deborah and Tom, Linn and Tom, Charmion and Edmund, Charlie and Judy, Jeri, Becca, Deb and Jim along with Meghan and a friend - Kendall's family, Tami and Jason, Kathy. A few others have been invited.

Who else is in? Who else needs a bed?

You tie a tiny nun to a drink umbrella, stick it in a glass of champagne and when the bubbles make her float up, she's Sister Mary Poppins.

Micca,
Take Kendall's advice and ride a Virgin across for New Year's Eve. We will miss you but expect a call... hee hee

Sour Cream Raisen Pie sounds suspiciously like mincemeat. It should meld well with Christmas Pudding.

It's snowing here and will snow on Christmas. Hope that means New Years Eve will be flake free.

oh, yeah. Hoping not only for non-flakage, but for moderate temperatures so we can leave the house and not stay tied to the woodstove. Yes, we have an oil furnace for backup, but it doesn't have a thermostat so can't be set at "A Little Above Freezing" or "Not Painful to Walk Back Into From Outside", etc.

Did you get a plum pudding for New Years?

Luckily my voice is back after a cold and I'm able to help him with the tune. He's going to deserve the nice guitar he's been promised when he comes to the USA next year!

This year can't leave fast enough. We have lots to celebrate - the Grammy, Maeve and Trulove's escape, my new mortgage, lots of new CDs, a new president, - work with me here. Add to the list. We'll toast a goodbye to those we lost.

Please do not spend money on gifts. This year especially there are too many who have nothing. Donate! Donate! Donate! Of course I have one truly crappy gift - it's for Linn and Tom and bought this summer in a moment's weakness. The frog that arrived this week is gift enough from and for all.

Sitdown dinner at 6PM. Appetisers. Ham + assorted veggies. Champagne, wine, assorted desserts. Coffee, tea, maybe hot apple cider.
And whatever comes in the door.

The only thing that could keep us home is if the temperature is too frigid. Snow I think we could deal with.

Almost didn't make it home tonight -- the door locks in my car were frozen. All of 'em. The passenger side lock didn't want to release my key, either, until I fought with it a bit.

Was rescued by a Sears associate from Fitness who had one of those little flame throwers. It worked -- and he didn't melt the lock, either.

Could have sworn I posted to this before I went to work.

Woke up this morning feeling like doggy doo. Went to bed last night feeling like doggie doo. GI distress, headache, general aches, etc. -- same symptoms as my coworkers just got over.

Had to go to work (noon-3) or I wouldn't get paid for tomorrow, but decided to avoid sharing this malady with the gathering, we'll stay home.

Really wanted to make it, but I'll probably be asleep by 10. And with the weather the way it is (though it wasn't bad driving on the way home heading west), I doubt we'll be howling at the blue moon tonight either.

By the way, I got a package from my sister today including an INCREDIBLE Christmas gift -- an original videotape of the Smenge's "The Last Polka"!!!! NOT available on DVD. Wonderful! If I didn't feel so glucky, I'd watch it tonight.

Sinsull-

Everything was delicious! And there certainly was plenty of it.

Kendall was in good humor, and it was great to see Brett and Wakana after so many years. Brett had a nasty cold but it's hard to feel sympathy for someone who has been residing on a tropical island for years.

Everyone was excited about the Grammy nomination, and there are plans to fly out to LA for the presentation evening later in January. Maybe we all should go and start chanting.
I do hope that if our favorite producers are called up on stage for the award that there is no major wardrobe malfunction.

The driving wasn't bad running home before midnight but coming down in the late afternoon traffic was tied up in knots as a car BBQ'd in the breakdown lane (no one was injured). I'm glad that we planned for extra time.

Nice to be home!

There was enough food for an army and lots of leftovers including champagne, I have to find younger friends. Tom's dips were amazing. And I actually loved the raisen sour cream pie. Definitely needs a name change - Dried Grape and Cream Delight, maybe? Pies and chocolates and cheeses and a new Nunzilla for whom no one is taking responsibility.

Got a call from (I thought) Big Mick and rambled on for a while until I was told "This is Pat Paterson." So sorry, Spaw but I think someone spiked my lemonade.

Happy New Year all.

Micca - they were all on their way to bed by the time Dick Clark announced dropping balls which led to a folk tale from Wakana about raccon whose...ask Brett about it.

The Raspberry Liquor is beautiful. Served it in dark chocolate cups. Jacqui and i are planning an afternoon of bad movies and good drinks. We toasted you, Micca. But no phone call. Sorry.

Edmund and I were very, very quiet. After a duck dinner, we watched a movie -- Monsters Inc., not bad but no earth-moving experience, either -- and then I went to bed at 10 over Edmund's protests. He stayed up till midnight (on general principles) and then retired himself, accompanied by Bill the cat.

We were sincerely sorry to miss the Mainiacs' New Year's Eve party, but if you were having weather misery it's just as well we stayed at home. Today I feel refreshed and rested for the first time in weeks, if not months.

It's been snowing here off and on since Wednesday, not heavily but quite persistently; yesterday's driving was downright treacherous. Edmund is out clearing the mouth of the driveway so we can go out to see the new Sherlock Holmes. The family feast -- usually the last blow-out of the holiday seas -- is tomorrow, and then we have to buckle down to get ready for the return to work. Bleah.

..... and so I was busy singing songs and playing tunes until damn near 3:00 AM. I have got to get a different line of work ...... like singing songs and playing tunes during daylight hours. I had hoped to call the Maine-iacs but it was not to be.

Spaw ..... when you and I fart in unison, it is pure harmony. I think we are twins separated at birth. It is the only possible explanation for the filial harmonies produced by our flatulence.....

All the best,

Jeri - this storm we are about to enjoy is a big one IF...I would not have made the trip. Honest, I thought Brett and Wakana were going to be here for a while. We are looking at 16" os snow starting Saturday. Wind. Flood tides. Armageddon. Maybe not. But I have a warm puppy, four cats and enough leftovers to last three weeks.
Happy New Years, all.

Hey Mick, there's a pub in Sonoma that always hires MichaelR's Irish band for an "Irish New Year's party." It's a blast, and the best thing about it is that they celebrate the New Year on Iris time -- i.e., 4pm here. A little later where you are, but still it could work well for you. At that rate, you could play tunes til 3am, and still be tucked in bed by 11:30.

You ever see that Stephen King movie 'The Storm of the Century'? Roanoke Colony. I do not want to go up there only to find '"Croatoan' spray-painted on your tree lobster! Be careful.

It did have some entertaining fake Maine accents. All the evil dude wanted was the children anyway. Big deal.

I don't know why, but whenever the weather gets really cold and snowy, I love watching colder, snowier movies. 'The Savage Innocents' (with Quinn the Eskimo), 'Jeremiah Johnson', 'North to Alaska', 'White Fang', 'The Red Tent'... OK, maybe not that last one. Anyway, I watch them and I feel warmer. Then my power goes out and I head to your house. (Seriously, it's the ice storms that do that shit.)

Is this all off-topic? Does anyone care? I'm still sorry I missed the party. I haven't had real ham in ages and I missed Brett &
Wakana. Maybe we should do next year in Guam?

I'm in for the duration and taking the opportunity for a couple of really lazy days - I was too tired New Years Eve to stay up late - the spirit was willing but the flesh was definitely weak!

January will be a busy month so a few days total R&R will probably be a good idea and with the snow piling up there's a damn good excuse not to go out at all.

"I'm all right, Jack -- I'm inboard" is how my dear old Dad put it. Most definitely *not* a Mudcat theme song, and rarely heard (I'm sure) among the Mainiacs.

It's still snowing here. Edmund is out hunting and gathering, and we are actually almost ready for the final events of the Ottawa festive season -- a call on a sick friend, and the Chaplin family dinner.

Roll on Spring, say I. Like Kendall, I have always wondered why we celebrate New Year in the depth of winter. The first of May would be perfect.

My bro used to call me every first of May and say, "Hurray, hurray, it's the first of May. Ootside F****** begins TODAY!"

Giok... everyone knows it was a joke... an old one, but...

And, as for the snow squall, I am gonna do what my Gramma Owens used to do... add some extra turnip and carrots to the stew and accept the fact that I live in a wonderful part of the world, even if we get a few inconveniences now and then. And, I have new shingles on my roof so the 120kph winds don't worry me as much this year.

I haven't been snowed in since I was a boy. I remember one time it was two weeks before we got plowed out. Snow up to the telephone wires and that is no joke. My brother in law had a 1934 Ford, (Bobert will love this) and it started after a while, but it would not move. The grease in the transmission and differential was so cold it stalled the engine.

Actually, my question was a serious one.Why?

It's a fair question, Kendall. I seem to remember from my long-ago past as a Renaissance Faire staff researcher that in 16th century Europe, the new year was celebrated on March 25. Not even the first of the month. Look up "New Year" in Wikipedia for a variety of dates celebrated by a variety of cultures. Here's what it says about March 25:

"In Annunciation Style dating the new year started on 25 March, the feast of the Annunciation. This was used in many parts of Europe in the Middle Ages, and was the style introduced by Dionysius Exiguus in AD 525. Annunciation Style continued to be used officially in the Kingdom of Great Britain until 1 January 1752, except Scotland which changed to Circumcision Style dating on 1 January 1600, the Act being passed on 17 December 1599.[18] The rest of Great Britain changed to Circumcision Style on the 1 January preceding the conversion in Great Britain from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar on 3/14 September 1752. The UK tax year still starts on 6 April which is 25 March + 12 days, eleven for the conversion from the Julian to the Gregorian calendar plus a dropped leap day in 1900."

Reading that page, it looks like we can blame January 1 on Rome.

Tom and I were snowed in for 3 days in April 1982 (a couple months before our June wedding). My boss kept calling to find out when I could get to work -- the town couldn't get a plow down our road even with the town clerk living next door! (Those of you in New England know what that means -- the town was SHUT DOWN!)

They finally got a gigantic front end loader through, which made my boss very happy.

This was back before the road was paved; not sure whether that made any difference or not.
