New Year’s Eve Fun for Shut-Ins 2008

Staying in on New Year’s Eve? Me too, lots to do: ice cream sandwiches just don’t eat themselves. Here are some low-effort, time-wasting activities to keep you in a festive mood. Hope everyone has a swell time, thanks for another nonsense-filled year on the ol’ Internet.

Critique: Your friends sent you a lot of holiday cards, huh? Well, round up the ones that contain family photos and judge them from best to worst, posting your results on your blog, better yet, Facebook (people read that). Do not be afraid to point out bad photography, poor design or unfortunate outfit choices. Your friends will appreciate the advice and put out a better product next year.

Imbibe: Grab yourself a few of my favorite beers of 2008 and get yourself loaded enough to watch Robbie Knievel jump over a volcano:

Zone Out: Fire up your Zune and enjoy the sounds of silence.

Nitpick: Movie Mistakes of 2008

Stream: “The Best Show” on WFMU – December 30th

Stumble: Just install the StumbleUpon button on your toolbar (very easy), input your interests, then click away. Something intriguing usually pops up.

Squint: Read the classics on your cell phone.

Banish: Some worn out words and phrases.

Read: Todd Barry’s latest funny interview (even though he never answered my last interview questions, no grudges). Follow Todd.

Laugh… at Brett Favre! ha ha.

    Hey,

    Great seeing you and the family today as the girls are so beautiful.

    Driving up 206 North to see Mark and Diane, I stopped at a local packy to grab a nice bottle for the hosts.

    What I found was unreal: A 2003 Samuel Adams Utopias (#6600) sitting, collecting dust behind the gentleman who was ringing me up.

    I asked for the price on that “strange cask” expecting to hear 275.00 – 300.00, he said 145.00.

    Without cracking a smile I said “OK, just don’t tell my wife”.

    Lol, walked out of that place with a Holy Grail, boxed and ready to go for 155.00 inc. tax.

    NICE!

    I have a 2007 (08) that I bought on EBAY for a nice chunk of change that came with a Reidel (gorgeous).

    Because you have a website, new book and get lots of hot chicks (Kelly, we’ll talk), please do some research on the 03 and we can crack it open for January 31st (The Jeffers big birthday!).

    I’ve tasted this beautiful batch before with Cousin Bob O’Neill(07) and it’s unreal.

    See you soon as the beers you listed suck and the 15 pack of Fire Brewed Stroh’s rules!

    Sorry, I only drink “Blacksmiths” now, nothing else! Researching the 2003 Samuel Adams Utopia right now and looking forward to tipping it back with you!
