Awww, yisss!

Received notice this morning that the McRib was back in town (why, yes, I’m on McDonald’s mailing list; aren’t you?) and Uncle B drove me right out to get one. Not a huge fan, it just tickles me to see ancient artifacts from my home planet.

We’re spending New Year’s Eve with the neighbors. We’ll be running along shortly. Thing is, our neighbors are mostly elderly sheep farmers. Early to bed, early to rise and all that. Their heads will gently bow to their chests and soft snoring noises will come from them, beginning around ten. Oh, such fun!

See y’all back here Friday: New Dead Pool. 6 WBT. Be here, or be somewhere else!

p.s. oh, yeah — HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Tomorrow is Friday? Oh, I keep forgetting you Australians are in a different year from the rest of us.

The way to celebrate New Years is get on cable and start with the fireworks in Sydney and follow the time zone all the way ’round the planet. It would be like a New Year’s celebration every hour for twenty four hours.

Tis okay, Lady Mustelidae, I’m drunk too. We don’t consider things said in the presence of ethanol to be legally binding. & thank God for these small graces.

I had a McRib once not long after their introduction. Let’s just say that the high point, for me, was the pickle.

And I don’t much like pickles in my sandwiches (I love ’em on the side).

They’re back here too! I packed away a pair* of ’em just the other day, Stoaty! Yum! I was over-pudged for a good 12 hours.

*They had a two-fer sale locally.

If the sandwich was called the McBug or McShit you could sleep easy knowing there were no bugs or shit in it. Which is why they called it the McRib.

Yes, they’re setting off fireworks here right now (5 hours early). Or they’re on Zulu Time (probably those damned jar heads).

Lots of fireworks from the time it started to get dark, and since I’m in Norway, that’s pretty early. At 2 AM they’ve finally quieted down…finally.

Happy new year, everyone!

I’m impressed that the neighbors will make it to 10. It’s 8:30pm here and I shall be in bed in about 10 more min. Happy New Year! And may God bless us all this new year!

Had a McRib at a McDonalds in West Germany. It came without sauce. (I guess you could ask for the sauce, but I decided to go native.) But the beer that came with it was Okeydoke.

Oh — and happy New Year to all.

I’d like to wish a Happy New Year to Ms. Stoaty and Señor Badger and to all the Minions scattered round the planet, this is an amazing place to hang out and thanks for letting me join you. it’s been a fun year, and what better way to wrap it up than drunk and discussing the vitrues the McRib, I ask you? I still have a few hours to go here, but will probably be unable to type, even with my thumbs, by the time the ball drops here… So now it is: Happy New Year!

Someone asked what kind of noisemaker I’d use when the ball drops. “Step on the cat’s tail,” I said.

Just kidding. The cat would have something to say about that.

Happy New Year to Badger House!
Do the Mustelids have any resolutions for the New Year?
I need to be more organized, but that’s what I say every year!

I find m’self oddly fascinated with what kind of victuals are customary at a sheep farmers’ NYEve party…

Happy New Year, Weasels and Weaselettes!

Tried the McRib when it first showed up in my area. Remembering the McNugget, I also grabbed a Dbl Cheesburger. Wise decision as that became my meal. Traces of ground gristle do nothing for my taste buds.

Let’s see, Just Me. We had cold quiche slices, mini sausage rolls, apple pie with custard, a cold salad, assorted cheeses and crackers (not saltines, obviously).

And homemade shortbread too, your Stoatliness – don’t forget that!

Happy New Year, fellow minions!
