SUPRISINGLY, IT'S ONLY A 1-STAR
...as indicated by bloggranddaughter Ktreva of The Reality Ranch's handy chart:
One Star Hangover (*)
No pain. No real feeling of illness. You're able to function relatively well. However, you are still parched. You can drink 5 cokes and still feel this way. For some reason, you are craving a steak & fries.
I rang in the new year in the house of Contagion of Miasmatic Review and his aforementioned beloved wife Ktreva.
There are tales to tell... oh my, yes...
Like how - while reminiscing about sex on a Ferris wheel - Contagion & Ktreva got a little out of control, and before you knew it, there was a wet spot on the couch.
But I suppose that - out of courtesy for their fine food-and-drink-laden hospitality - I should just avoid mentioning the rest of their activities.
Still, I must say this:
If Contagion EVER tells you "don't watch this video", then - in the name of all that you hold dear and holy - take his word for it.
On the other hand, don't believe a word about how bad the MacPhail 27 (a locally-distilled adult beverage) is. Sure, it's got a brutal kick and a subtle undertaste of things long dead, but I still prefer it to straight shots of either cheap vodka or expensive gin.
Other vague, blurry memories that I sorta remember include:
Wes of Bodhran (Drum) Roll, Please! vowing to learn how to play Weird Al's "White & Nerdy" on his bodhran. I think it was conditioned on finding the lyrics. Which are here.
Little Joe of Little Joe's Soap Box - who I haven't seen in WAY too many months - was there. I nagged him to update his blog. He just ignored me and grabbed my wife.
Oh, and he's got a new hat. I think it was something like this, but the lighting was bad in the house, so I could be mistaken.
Graumagus of "deep in a coma, but could come out of it any day now, so it doesn't technically qualify as being dead" aka Frizzen Sparks was forced to watch the Packers treat his precious Bears like a puppy getting frisky on his first Nerf ball. To ease his sorrow, he made a drinking game out of it, and had to drink every time the Bears screwed up. On the bright side, Grau didn't have to watch the WHOLE game, since he was too busy trotting into the other room to refill his glass.
Shadoglare of Refractional Darkness... well, all I can say is that he needs to practice his recorder so that he can accompany Wes on "White & Nerdy" next year.
Anyway, the great thing about bloggers getting together is that you inevitably learn about new & cool stuff on the internet. Here's what I learned:
Funny British cross-dresser Eddie Izzard [adult language].
Ask a ninja.
The Federal Vampire & Zombie Agency.
And something about Barry Williams
So... how was YOUR New Year's Eve?

Happy New Year!
We watched part of that game last night - too bad the Bears decided not to show up and play. Heh.
So, after Little Joe grabbed TNT... did he give her back? Just wondering. *grin*
It was a pleasure to have you and your lovely wife in our humble abode.
Drank, told stories, drug out the guitar at like 23:00. Watched movies and generally stayed in out of the cold. Watched it snow at midnight. Too bad it didn't stay
Retrieved Frank J. and SarahK from the airport around 920p. Brought them back here. We played a board game. Ate some food. Popped the cork at midnight. Two bottles of very decent champagne. And then, Frank broke out the Wii and we bowled until almost 4a.
Those crazy kids. Don't they know I'm too old to stay up that late?
Happy New Year, Harvey.
I am very happy to have had you and TNT with us to celebrate!
And at least my quarterback doesn't cry like a little bitch.
Although if I had played like he did, I probably would....
Damn, I missed a good one this year.
Next year, if they are still speaking to me.....
And Happy New Year to two of my very favorite people.
Had a nice a quiet New Year's Eve, just like I like them. I don't go on the roads on Amateur Night, because most drivers on the road can't spare the driving skill that New Year's celebrations take away.
Played Medieval II: Total War all night, and don't have a hangover at all...it just *might* be because I keep alcohol in the house. Nah...
Happy New Year to you and TNT!
Happy New Year! Sounds like a great time was had - not that I would have expected anything less from Contagion and his Glogg. :-)
Happy New Year to you and TNT and the family (yaaa... we even let Happy Dog have a little extra goodies on New year's eve). Enjoy 2007!!!
Obviously not as fun as yours. But I did get to watch a bunch of Marx Brothers movies on AMC. Not too bad a way to spend New Year's Eve.
Oh, and Happy New Year!
I, of couurse, worked on New Year's Eve. The highlight was when I got home a little after midnight to find that not only was my whole street parked-up by neighborhood party-goers, but a big-ass black pick-up truck (NOT a Cadillac, however) had blocked my driveway. Gotta love drunks---not!
P.S. it was still there at noon when I went into work on New Year's Day. All the other cars were gone, but that one was still there. I think my Karma needs a make-over...
