Discuss among yourselves

We’re going to the neighbors’ for New Year’s Eve, so I’ve left a casserole in the fridge for you. All you have to do is pre-heat the oven to 350º and give it forty, forty-five minutes. Until it’s brown, anyhow. In case you’ve forgotten, I’ve left their number on the hall table. We’re right next door, so we’ll know if you have anybody over, ‘K?

Love you.

I wouldn’t have the faintest fucking idea what to say about this year anyhow. For me personally, it was an intensely weird year to cap off an intensely weird decade.

But not to disappoint, here’s somebody else on the best Internet memes of 2009. I’d missed a couple.

2009 should go down in history as the year that defies the laws of physics: it sucks and blows, simultaneously. I will not be sad to see the door hit it in its sorry ass.

I think we need to reinstate ‘duck and cover’ in the schools, for anyone who had to suffer through those drills would know that the commies have taken over our govt. I don’t recognize my beloved country any more. I don’t know if this is because I have become my grandmother or it truly is a shambles. My kid came into the family room yesterday and said she’s afraid to wake up any more for fear of what she will hear on the news. So yeah, I would say the world sucks. My family on the other hand is very blessed.

I hope you all have a blessed New Year, please all be safe, I would miss you.

I agree with weirdsister. It both sucked and blowed in a giant circle-jerk of stupid.

Goodbye Oughts. Don’t let the door hit you in the ass.

Yeah, 2009 wasn’t the best. In fact, the last 5 years have been hard. I hope 2010 is a lot better.

About that casserole…it doesn’t have onions in it does it? Cuz I hate onions.

I think the only possible answer is: a little of both, but friends, both meatspace and virtual, made the latter times bearably.

Have a great New Year, all, and here’s to a much better 2010 for us all.

Well, my trailer hitch still has all the chrome and I heard nothing from Ross Perot–so it didn’t suck. It blew the grand wazoo.

Happy New Year, Stoaty.

Personally, I think the high point of the year was the video of MTV security physically dragging Pink away from Kanye West at the VMA’s, as she was hell-bent on inflicting mayhem on him for dissing Taylor Swift.

Her performance later on stage (and above) was nice too….

2009 ranks as one of the top crappiest years of my life. Being diagnosed with a life-threatening disease was the low point. I will not be sorry to see it go.But I survived.

350 °F is Gas Mark 4. The rule is 250 + (25 × Gas Mark).

Hey, look, it’s almost the New Year in Weaseltown. Speaking of which, is it now Weasel Mean Time instead of Greenwich Mean Time?

Happy New Year to you Weasel and Uncle Badger.


BTW is there anything strange in the casserole? Like kidneys and other internal organs.

No, no…nothing weird. It’s Frito pie!!!

We’re back. Had a very convivial evening. Fireworks weren’t much this year, but there’s a full moon and good company.

Basically, we’ve broken in 2010 for you. Enjoy!

Happy New Year everybody!

2009 was quite a good one for me… finally snared a weasel, after all. Lots of it prolly sucked, but I didn’t really notice 🙂

Frito chili pie is the world’s leading cause of gas explosions since the 1960’s!!!!

Is it legal to serve Frito pie in England? What, with all those “concealed weapons” laws and such. Much more deadly than a standard kitchen knife. Can be silent too. Silent but deadly.

Yes, Happy New Year, Stoatie! 2009 was so bad that it defied description, but your blog has helped to make it tolerable. Thank you. 🙂

Colonel Sandurz: “It’s Mega Maid. She’s gone from suck to blow. ”

Indeed, this was a fairly sucky, blow-y year, both for humanity and for me personally.

Happy New Year, Sweasel & Uncle Badger…2009 still has got about 4 1/2 hours to go out here in California…I hope 2010 is a good year for you. 2010…I can’t imagine it…we’re living in the Future! Reading all those SF stories when I was a young’un made me think that by 2010, we’d all be dead, zombies, or hosts to aliens…

Sucky for the most part, but at least I found a decent job this year…..

Now I can occasionally buy some nice Weasel swag…

Happy New Year Badger House.

The only good news this past year was you two getting hitched.

2009 blew some suck as Barry sucked the blow offa Rahm’s ass.

Christ they’re giving it some effort with the fireworks here in San José. It sounds like I’m in Sarajevo. If I didn’t have to get up in four hours to make the airport for my vacation jaunt I’d be up on the roof.

I had a single, well-paying contract lasting through all 2009, and didn’t have to travel to some Third World shithole to work it, so on a personal level, not bad.

Politics is something else, of course.

I had a single, pretty-decent contract lasting through all 2009, and had to travel to some Third World shithole to work it, but only got mortared a couple of times a month, so on a personal level, not bad.

Politics was a spitter.

Hey…the Weasel in the masthead runs now. There’s an improvement to start off a new decade!

It’s almost 1PM here in California, and my ears are still ringing from 30 kids screaming the countdown with Zombie Dick Clark. Need. Bloody. Mary. Stat.

2009 was an ok year for the Dave in Texases, but pretty tough for some of my internety friends. Some lost jobs. Others lost loved ones. I hope 2010 is much better to them.
