Welcome To The Party

So, it's New Year's Eve once again. I've celebrated thirty-er... something New Year's Eves and most of them turn out the same.

I stay up really late, eat junk food, then sleep in the next day. It's all very exciting.

Hubs keeps saying we're going to play a game one of these years. It's called Hiding Gum. The rules per Hubs are 1) One person hides sticks of gum all over the house 2) Everyone else tries to find it.

You can see why we've never played it.

If you're new to this blog, you don't realize that the Hiding Gum game is a sort of a joke and perfectly normal for Hubs all at the same time.

We will be home tonight, eating chili and watching TV. No parties this year (or any year, one doesn't receive many invitations when all they bring to the party is Juicy Fruit.)

This leads me to one question: Has anyone seen the Wally World commercial with the product demonstrator?

The lady doing the demonstration looks nothing like the ones I see at Wally World. She is about fifty years younger, much more perky and pleasant. She demonstrates every small appliance in the store.


The part that sends me over the edge is when she follows a customer home and helps her with her party. Who invites a Wally World employee to their house to help them make meatballs? Isn't that a little creepy?

I suppose they'd be really good at greeting guests at the door (tee hee.)

It really is pathetic when a Wally World employee receives more party invitations than I do. I'll bet she never plays Hiding Gum.

Happy New Year.

Beware of party guests in blue vests. (sound of wolf howling in the distance)

You're welcome.

You party about as much as we do:) The last time we rang in the New Year was Y2K. We only stayed up to see if anything would happen. LOL

We will be staying in eating mexican dip and watching football. No hiding gum at our house:)

Happy New Year.

We should start a party animals club. Or something. That's about the pace of our New Year's parties too. We are so boring. LOL. We did however, do the traditional "go to my sister's and eat until we can't move and watch a movie until midnight" thing, except this year we shook it up a bit and play Star Trek monopoly too.

Happy New Year to you and your family!

So, are you a Carson or Ryan watcher? Or do you eschew (that's my big word for the day) them in favor of watching old movies?

We used to stay home and watch movies while playing monopoly. Now that our older son has gotten too cool to stay home with us on NYE we just watch a movie, eat snacks we shouldn't, kiss about midnight, finish watching our movie then go to bed! Boring seems to be a trend around here!!
