HNY, y’all


Not my favorite holiday, New Year. Passage of time, reminders thereof…I don’t like it. And this year, the host we usually Auld Lang Syne wit’ has come down with a nasty cold and begged off. So it’s drinking in front of the television again!

Not a complaint. Roaring fire, pair of pussycats, some silly film or other. There are worse ways to pass an evening. And 2015 was a pretty okay year for us personally. Out in the big wide, that’s another thing, but inside Mustelid Towers: no complaints. More of the same, please.

Happy New Year to you and Uncle Badger as well, Stoaty. Prepping for my annual “working” NYE: assisting my wife during her bellydance gig at local upscale ethnic restaurant. Keeping the music on track, arranging balancing-props (candle tray, Scimitar), all while I eat delicious food with the owner. This year it’s Turkish.

I am a Lucky Bastard!

Wishing all of you a Happy New Year!
(Except that particular Kiwi Prick. Just typing his name riles me, so I won’t. Die, slowly, and alone.)

Happy New Year, fellow minions!

As predicted, the mustelids are halfway through a bottle of champagne, watching the fireworks on TV from London (pretty impressive this year) and already laying plans for 2016’s wickedness.

Wishing you all a very happy, healthy and prosperous 2016!

Yah, I’m sick also. At least with the head cold, plus the bunker AND the headphones – I didn’t hear the warzone outside nor the bad, BAD karaoke.

I did miss the roast pig, so that’s disappointing.

HAPPY NEW YEAR, everyone!

I love New Years. Fresh start. Wipe a whole year’s slate clean. All things are possible blah blah blah.

It’s silly, but I really do love this random-yet-nigh-universal closing of the battered and stained account book and starting a nice, clean, unsullied New one. All personal,professional failures archived – all tragedies and traumas relabeled from “shock/surprise” to “that’s life, deal”.

Happy New Year everyone!

A very Happy New Year to all, both in and merely-corresponding-with Mustelid Manor, and all the ships at sea…

Take a hike, 2015 – you wasn’t as turrible as ya might’a been, but that’s not much of a consolation.

Countdown on Brrraachh Hussein Obarkingmad: One year and ’round-abouts 20 days to run – faster, please!

Happy New Year all!!
After dinner, watched the Orcs drop – LOTR was on.
Last year started off slow, but finished in positive territory for us. Gladly take another like it.

Happy New Year!

May your troubles be less,
And your blessings be more.
And nothing but happiness come through your door.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
