Happy New Year

Postby Uncle Stevie » December 31st, 2010, 1:24 am

To all my unseen friends on this wonderful movie communication board. I love you all and wish you all a bright, healthy, and fortunate future. As Al Jolson said, "you ain't seen nothin yet". Or was it Al Capone? Nothing but good things for all of you.


How do you spend your New Years Eve? For me it is a 30 year routine. We go with friends to a Chinese Restaurant, then to a movie, and then come back to our house for Champagne, coffee, and cake and watch the New Ball fall. Except this year no movie. What do you do?

Happy New Year to everyone here at the Oasis and to your loved ones as well.

May you all enjoy the festivities that greet the New Year and may 2011 be a better year for us all.

MrC and I will go to dinner at friend's house (the one holiday, it seems, I don't have to cook!), share a lovely meal and some tasty wine, get caught up on our lives and be home to celebrate the New Year with a tender kiss and a glass of bubbly.

Doesn't get any better than that.

To all the Oasisians going to the TCM Film Festival in April, I look forward to seeing you there!

A happy, safe and prosperous new year.

We are having a friend over (maybe more) but for Carolann it will be an early night as she has to work at 5:30 in the morning. Depending then on when our guests leave I will likely be visiting with Harpo on TCM.

God bless us, everyone.

Happy new year to all the lovely people who post here.

Ours will be a quieter night seeing as we have small children, we'll be spendig it at home, we will be celebrating and hoping for good news in the new year.

And a Happy New Year to all!

Mrs. ChiO & I have been preparing for our 23rd Annual Black-Tie New Year's Eve Dinner Party since 6:30am (CST). Menu this year: scallop bisque; spicy crab on celery root; levrakia marinata (sea bass with vinegar & rosemary); rack of lamb; green beans with tomatoes; cheese plate with apples, pears & fig preserves; assorted pastries (including bakalava, of course); and, vasilopita (sweet New Year's bread named after St. Basil). With plenty of martinis, single malt scotch, vodka (there's always one guy), champagne, red & white wines as befitting each course, port and cognac to wash it all down. Other than some last minute assembling, cooking, and plating, all that remains to be prepared is the bisque (can you hear Mrs. ChiO in the background blending?).

The four other couples are scheduled to arrive at 8pm (CST). And our 23 year old daughter (Coincidence that this is the 23rd NYE party? I think not.) will be holding down the fort with two friends in the basement watching movies.

Then off to Church at 8:30am (CST) tomorrow, all red-eyed and bushy-tailed, while the daughter drives to -- grrrr -- Green Bay to sit in -- grrrr -- Lambeau Field on Sunday to cheer our -- YEAAAAA! -- Chicago Bears.

Are you SURE she'll be cheering for those navy-blue Yogi's?
100%?
Because I hate to think about your lovely girl driving all the way back home, through all those bitter tears . . . :cry:
Then again, Lambeau Field, America's Greatest Shrine to Football, is so near Heaven, even cheering for an Arch Rival like Da Bears as they're getting shellacked must be nearly a divine experience. :idea:

Happy New Year to all my friends here at SSO. It's my first New Year Celebration outside of my country. Currently I'm in Atlanta and we are going to have dinner at 9:00 AM at the Ritz Carlton with my wife, my brother and sister in law and my nephew and niece. Afterwards we expect to party & dance a lot!! HAPPY 2011!!

Sounds like you weren't even trying. I had my limit of two Pepsis.
