sad but true

sad but true

PostBy: gambler On: Mon Dec 31, 2007 9:28 pm

Am I the only one that does not have a life? and relies on this forum for some sanity? Here it is New Years eve and I feel like the Maytag repairman. I keep searching this forum for signs of life and it seems like I am the only one here.

Oh well! I will go drink another beer alone. Gee maybe I do have a problem. :o

If anyone reads this have a happy and safe New Year!! :)

I have been drinking beer (Yuengling) and watching the blue ladies dance, now if the blue ladies could only sing.
Wait a minute, I think they are starting to sing.
Yes,Yes, they are starting to sing.
Bartender, give me another beer.

It's whatever makes you happy. You could be out "trying" to have a good time, worrying about the "hereafter" (DUI, etc.).

I splurged ... cooked myself a lobster tail, baked potato, and made a salad. Am having a little wine, but might switch to something a little more exotic. Jack and Coke, Bloody Maria (Tequila), Capt and Coke ??? Maybe one of each! I could go out, but don't know as I want to.

I'm thinking, maybe I'll be the first to order my coupons for a digital to analog TV converter. I haven't had the TV on much since 9/11, so really don't get too excited about the change.

Got you all beat!

Had two shot's of single barrel bourbon, boarded the Dinner Train in Bardstown Ky for a nice ride.

Dined with a couple from Peru ( A very nice young lady). Spoke english,sort of!

Enjoyed Prime Rib, Potato's with Rosemary and oregano, Steamed Shrimp and Vegetables and a bottle of Ky Ale. Finished with baked apple dumpling with ice cream and coffee.

Girlfriend could not make it, so I took the Wife. She behaved and we had a good time.

Happy New Year to all.
My wife and I had dinner at a small inn in town, then another couple joined us for drinks.
It's an old place, it has steam heat, so I was captivated by the sounds of the oil boiler below us and the hissing of the radiators.
My wife has discovered lemon drop martinis, put her to bed at 11:30 and then I had a little Jack on the rocks to ring in the new year, and now I'm here, so you are not alone!

Same here except we don't have any TV besides what the DVD and VCR provide. We watched Smokey and the Bandit part 1, 2, and 3 and some 3 stooges. I splurged for dinner and cooked up 3 live lobsters and some shrimp and some good cheese and crackers and best of all Miller beer. We have 4 kids all under the age of 13 so you family guys know what it's like to get a babysitter on a holiday. Yeh looks like we made it another year. Woke up at 1pm today :D

Best lobster I ever had was live, cooked on Assateague island on top of my MSR campstove. Almost a 3 pounder me and another guy split. Years ago when me and my friends used to do a lot of camping we'd get nuts at this time of the year. We'd be out in the middle of the woods in the snow with 20 degree weather cooking shrimp, lobster, ribs, clams, fillet mignon or even better yet venison fillet mignon with wild pappinckys. Maybe a couple of smallmouths or trout left over from the summer..... Mmmmmm. The whole nine yards and then some. I ate better in the woods than I did at home. We used to have so much it was funny because it would be like a full buffet layed out that would cost you $30-40 if you went to restaurant :D
