I must be getting old.

Recommended Posts

It must be my age. That ABC "Dick Clark's New Years Rockin' Eve" last night was the worst piece of crap I've ever seen. In spite of the tequila I was drinking, that show sucked worse than anything that has ever sucked before. The 'entertainers' :o were the worst line up of lame a** lip synchers ever seen. I couldn't even tell you who one of them was, I guess you have to be 14 years old to get it.

If it wasn't for the fact we were at my in laws and I have to keep things cival, I wanted to take a baseball bat to the tv. It was that bad.

They should just let Dick Clark die already. No offense to Dick. It's a shame he's being exploited, probably doesn't even know whats going on. He's got a good plastic surgeon and make up artist.(Kinda reminded me of Brett Favre. Time to hang it up.)

I was flipping thru that show, our local Chicago coverage which was horrible and the Vegas Mandelay Bay show, which was not half bad. I would have gone to sleep but I had to stay up to pick up my 21yo stepdaughter from the party she was at. She calls at 2:00 gives me the address and says put in in the GPS. Turns out the party was at a mansion on a private lake I have been driving past for years, thinking to myself "That would be an awsome lake to fish" Now I have to figure out how a dirtbag like me can make nice with the rich folks so I can fish the lake. LOL

I hadn't realized how ugly that kesha chick was until i saw her performance. For how crappy her music is and all the stuff she "sings" about, i figured she'd be good looking in a slutty way. Nope, she is FUGLY!!!! Is she missing a tooth or something? She smiled and i cringed.  ;D

You know you're getting old when you go to bed long before midnight on New Year's Eve.  The preceding posts confirm the saying, "With age comes wisdom." 

Indeed, I made a wise choice.  I was getting some much needed, but ineffective beauty sleep while you guys were watching stuff that SUCKED, apparently big time.    ;D

"Uh, hi. I'm from the Illinois Dept. of Lakes and stuff and I need to, uhh, ummm"

"Excuse me sir, my name is _________ from the Dept. of Homeland Security. We have reason to believe there are terrorists in your lake. We're gonna have to"....

"I'll cut your lawn for a whole year if you let me fish here"

"I'll fix your refrigerator"

:D :D :D

Definitely bad.  I didn't recognize any of the performers except for Train. The lip syncing was really bad.  When they announced that has-been boy bands were going to perform, that did it for me.  I switched to local coverage immediately.

And geez, if I see one more cliche proposal on New Year's Eve I'm going to puke!  Guys - be original at least!

watched almost 30 seconds, saw the proposal, nearly barfed and switched it to nat geo.  I don't remember what was on but I'm sure it was better.

Drove down to South Louisiana and spent the New Year week-end with family and friends.  The only television that was watched was Bowl games.  I can assure you that, from what I can remember, a good time was had by all.

I watched bits and pieces of it.  After the first bottle of Caymus Select, it was kind of down hilll.  My little cougar friend prepped some unreal New York Strip steaks, lobster tails, and the 2nd bottle of wine was amaizing.  1978 Silver Oak Cabernet.

Good times. :)

Very nice choices on the wine list.  Was the Silver Oak Alexander Valley or Napa?

I was asleep by 10 PM, LOL.  Got up at 3 AM to drive to the Salmon River.  Didn't catch much, but was totally worth it.

Alexander Valley.  I have some Silver Oak bottles that go back to 1974. :)

You shut your mouth.   Anyone older than me or my age is considered a cougar.  ;D
