...and I seem to have lost my marbles, Diana.

So do we all set our clocks to Hapke Mean Time to coordinate the noise makers and party hats?

I'm glad to be the designated drunk this year, though getting hammered generally involves about 2 drinks for me any more. I'm a total party wimp.


Julie

Hey, dudes and dudettes. I'm just getting ready to watch "Team America" with some pals. Gail, save me summa dat fancy beef stuff.
Happy New Year!

JWebb

Julie! Scott! Let's get this party started! I'm so ronery. . .

Julie

We love you long time JRebb.

Diana

Well, Rob's been drafted for temporary assignment, but I'm sure he'll be back soon. He's toast! Everything's under control. Meanwhile, I've got the champagne on ice. EST comes first, so all y'all will have to wait a bit.

Well, I prefer a Gibson, JW, and anyway, if you're using vodka, IT'S NOT A MARTINI, DAMMIT. Having said that, though, with Grey Goose? Nada, baby. My old man's recipe: six to one. Six parts gin (or vodka, sigh), and one moment of silence for the vermouth.

Craig - Champagne, like Patchouli oil, gives me an instant headache. And gin makes me feel like I have to shave my tongue the next morning. So, realizing I'm just a trailer-trash non-purist, will you please answer my damn question? ONIONS or OLIVES!?

JWebb

Personally? I'm leaning towards coctail onions, because their petite shape is more amenable to fitting in the nostril, which is a sure-fire ice-breaker for dull parties. But I'm a mere amatuer. . .

CraigC

Sorry, that's what a Gibson is, a martini with cocktail onions. And they can't be just any cocktail onions. There are a lot of sickly sweet ones out there. Holland House? Ugh. I'd go with Star, if they have them in CO.
