Happy New Year!
Feel a bit queasy this morning. We rang in the New Year with fizzy alcoholic beverages and bourbon balls on tummies filled with French fries and faux grilled chicken. Maybe not the cleverest of combinations. Or maybe it was the long soak in the hot tub afterwards to exacerbate the dehydration. Gurgle.
The important thing is we clinked in the beginning of 2004 with proper fanfare and celebration! *wobble*
The evening before Matthew put together his version of vegetarian shepherd’s pie and red velvet cake to celebrate my birthday. And oh, the prezzies! Many sexy and shiny new clothes, and two out-of-print Ann Maxwell books, as well as the new Tanith Lee book Piratica to be delivered in February. Yay for December’s unbridled avarice!
Hope everyone has a fantastic 2004!

Aha! Who made the bourbon balls this time? And what do you use for grilled “chicken”? Do you have a favorite store-bought product, or do you have a recipe? Share! 😀
I’m glad you had a great birthday and a safe and fun New Year’s Eve!
I made the bourbon balls, but Matthew “spiked” them so they were more potent than usual. Dangerous candy!
The faux chicken we like is made from Gardenburger, the “Chik’n Grill” patties. Yummy. I just love the fact that its so easy to find packaged meat substitutes in so many delicious varieties!
Hope you and Jaime (and your pride of felines) have a wonderful 2004!
Apropos of nothing, I love your user icon. I was actually thinking of having a custom bumper sticker made that said the exact same thing. 🙂
Thank you! You don’t need to have a bumper sticker made, though — it already exists. That is, after all, how I found out about the web site where I got the icon. It contains some interesting commentary, which is also much more credible than Michael Moore’s, IMO. Check it out.
