Commemorating 10 years without a New Year's Eve kiss

Happy New Year's, if you celebrate that sort of thing...which I tend not to. Sorry for my absence. I took a little siesta from blogging. And I just finished watching United 93 (again) and am not really in the mood to do much else tonight.

Editor: "I just had a thought. We're looking for a new food critic. Someone who doesn't immediately poo-poo everything he eats."
Homer: "No, it usually takes a few hours."


But fear not. This week I plan on unveiling my picks for the Best of 2006 in music, movies, books, and whatever else I can think of. Plus, I'll select my Crush of the Year. But, really, who could fill 2005 CotY Scarlett Johansson's very big...shoes?

So, be on the lookout this week for your regular MW fix, folks. I'm hitting the sack.

happy new years to you too, dude.

i didn't get a new year's kiss this year, now that i think about it. i was watching garrison keillor on pbs after watching the debacle that is the Chicago Bears. not exactly party-central.

and i haven't even considered the fact that i'm supposed to kiss as the ball drops.

anyway, my vote is for suri cruise. i mean, can you get better genes?

SB Number One said...

Suri Cruise? Nyet.

scouting/prospecting the minor, minor, minor, minor leagues is verboten.

right, Micah?

New Years kisses aren't everything. It just so happens that none of the MANY kisses I've received have fortuitously occurred at the stroke of midnight on New Years Eve. Maybe once one New Years Day, but who cares.

Anyway, all I did this year was go to a friend's house, watch DVDs of the hit Canadian series "Trailer Park Boys", and then get up at 6am to go to work.

THSE - Sorry that I was derelict in my duties. I still haven't tabulated the CotY results.

jasdye - Garrison Keillor? Man, you must've been asleep before midnight.

THSE is right: no minors. And the rules state that this year's Crush of the Year must have been a Crush of the Week sometime within Dec. 7, 2005 to Dec. 7, 2006.

dubin - Not even the sloppy kisses from Fritz? I didn't do much: spydrz, my nephew and I had pizza and watched the lil' guy play his Wii. We also screened Saving Private Ryan (had to educate him on where "Call of Duty 3" came from).

I was going to start tonight, but I'm going to have to push it back because I've fallen ill. After work I spent $35 on soup, NyQuil, Zicam, aspirin, and other sundries. I'll be heading to bed around 8 pm EST. Ugh.

I spent a fun New Year's Eve working from home. I got a kiss from my dog. Which, sadly, I enjoyed more than most of the human kisses I've had for a while.

SB Number One said...

it's even sadder when you consider where else the dog's mouth has likely been.

ZING!

The Dubin said...

I'm just glad my dog isn't much of a kisser. Because she licks her ass A LOT.

Anonymous said...

so do a lot of male NYE kissers.

.. or so i've heard.

The Law Fairy said...

Well, let's be honest here. You go to a NYE party at a bar or club, you don't know where ANY of those people's mouths have been. (uh oh, nobody tell Rosie -- I think I just made a homophobic remark!)

At least I know what my dog eats. And I have easy access to soap that hasn't been handled by approximately 4,298,187 drunken partygoers.

THSE said...

If your dog is anything like The Dubin's then I'd still take my chances with a human being (or just skip the kiss altogether.)

Also, most clubs and bars have liquid soap dispensers now.

The Law Fairy said...

Soap dispensers, then.

Those bathrooms have COOTIES.

thse said...

I pee standing up (or outside; external genitalia is so handy when it comes to public urination) so that's a non-factor as well.

Just admit what you know is true; Pet kisses are one degree away (if that) from "Ass-to-Mouth."

The Dubin said...

Ah, but you know what they always say: their mouths are cleaner than ours (I guess, therefore, their asses are cleaner even than our mouths...that's a sad thought).

Anonymous said...

especially cleaner than those people who lick their own arses.

which is what happens on NYE.

thse said...

Dubin - is that before or after they've wolfed down a turd or squirrel carcass?

Jas - even the douche have limits to their "abilities." seriously now, how many people do you know of (douche or non) that can lick their own arse or genitals ala our canine (and feline) friends?

The Dubin said...

Well, I'm pretty sure the whole thing is a myth, since any dog is bound to do at least one of those things.

Micah said...

You guys are hilarious. And sick.

It's not cheating if you spread peanut butter on your balls and let your dog lick it off...because it's your dog.

spydrz said...

Well this thread took an interesting turn.

THSE said...

Spydrz, are you in Mississippi right now?

spydrz said...

Huh?
