So far so good. Only one small moment of insaneness which involved cat toys but we will not speak of that. No news on whether they shipped a new lamp for the TV even though we spent extra money for Fed Ex Next Hour Shipping.
Doug Moe has a piece in the paper about a Picture Car Driver, Carl Peronto, who is pushing for a premier at the Orpheum. Well, it depends what you call a Premier. But I feel and this has been confirmed by a secret Universal Insider that it probably ain't going to happen. remember, premiers are not really for showing off movies, they are for Hollywood networking.
Now - I can see Madison having an event for sure. But the The Premier. On that note I still have it on my list of things to do to have an event at East Gate for a Columbus event. This would hopefully include bus's from Columbus. We would have the entire theatre to ourselves for a showing. I've spoken to a pimply 5th in command holiday teenager there and found out what needed to be done. Stay tuned.
The Kurth I believe is open tonight - not sure if that can make it to Midnight but it's open for a while. BTW - a few months ago we spotted some Universial Studio workers at the Kurth.
If y'all can't make it have a very safe new year eve and drink responsibly.
I need a new name for a beer I bottled last night - it WAS called Flat Squirrel but to many people think it is a Fat Squirrel clone (not sure HOW they get that idea). it's funny when someone tried it and say "wow that does taste like Fat Squirrel" well - it's not suppose to and doesn't actually. hmmmmm how can I use this trickery in the future.
So FLAT Squirrel has this description ( Toasty malt flavors (sorta like biscuits just pulled from the oven coasting in equilibrium with crisp hoppiness.)
It really does have a biscuits flavor. I used 3 oz's of Biscuit Malt i the recipe. so I want to change the name before it's too late. Once it's in peoples minds it's hard to get out. I was called Ronald an entire summer once because I went a week to long without correcting the ladies on my name, then it was too late.
I picked up a simple game from the past a few days ago. It was 50% so I figured WHY NOT - it's called The Farming Game and is like Monopoly on steroids. DJ and I played it last night and it's fun BUT I can see it will take a LONG time to finish. Thus when the directions say play to $250,000 or a time limit . . .they mean time limit.
Upon further review I found a website called Board game Geek and they rate all the board games. now I MUST find a game called "Agricola". It's rated highest from 365 voters. OR a game called "Puerto Rico" sounds awesome.
The current game that we play The Settlers of Cataan is rated 35th. I came in dead last the last time we played and Jenny seems to ALWAYS win!
I better get out and get the snow off the driveway - we have to move DJ's dad down the hall today. My job is to unhook and hook up his entertainment center and move all the heavy stuff - WHOO HOO.
Have a great last day of 2008 - I WOULD say good riddance but in reality this has been a great year for the Melotte's. We made so many new friends and personally I had a real fun year. Sure - there was a horrific dark moment but what does not tear you down will make you stronger.
So to all my new and nameless friends around the world - cheers!
