New Years Eve Extravaganza


Well, everyone has been talking about this all month - Boxer's Blogger New Year's Party. I'm not exactly sure how this is going to work, but it starts Friday, December 31st at 12:00 AM EST and ends sometime on January 1st. There will probably be some 50 or so bloggers (by my count) in attendance and Troll , Moi and Intuitive Eggplant will be big time participants/hosts.

I figure that, being the party guy that I am, I should provide some entertainment. And what better game could there be than Homer the Flanders Killer. This is way easier than the Troll Barmaid Bottle Catch Game and I don't think there's any scoring involved (Edit: There is scoring - I got 268). It's just kill or be killed - by Flanders - who is unarmed - Edit: He actually can kill you in later rounds).

Anyway, the underlying theme of this Boxer Bloggapalooza is charity. To start the new year right (and so that I can feel good about something) I will donate 50 cents for every comment left on this post. The money will be donated to our local council of the Boy Scouts of America.

I'm using the autolaunch publish so that this can come up at 12:00AM EST on Friday, which is way past my bed time. Especially if I'm going to stay up late for New Years Eve. We're apparently hosting a "real" party at stately Kill manor - so I'm told. So I'll start cruising around Friday in between cooking and cleaning. I have a feeling this thing may be "ever evolving" and I may add some additional stuff to this post, so come early, come often.

So remember to have a good time, straighten up, fly right and have a Happy New Year!



Supplemental: Chickory Garland Thing

So as part of Chickory's New Years Eve Party Activity, she encouraged the artistically challenged to make some New Years Garland. I took a shot at it. I started gluing it to the string but it wasn't sticking. Then I realized I was using Blistex. Plan B called for tape and that sort of worked.

Here's the Kill Family Tree. We usually get the tree from the local little league, but they didn't sell this year. So the Mrs looked online and we found a farm 18 miles away where we could "cut our own". So we trekked out there only to discover they're brought in from Pennsylvania and that this was a tomato farm and not a tree farm. Still, it's a nice tree and the Mrs was happy with it.
Here's my lame-ass garland.
Do you detect a theme to my blog? Anyone get this?
Here's the traditional Kill Christmas Village assembled by the Pudge.
Here's my tribute to Chevy Chase in Christmas Vacation.
That's all for now.

chickory said...

HAPPY NEW YEAR, BUZZ!!!!

X. Dell said...

As a former Boy Scout myself, I wouldn't disrespect your choice of charity. Have a happy New Year.

LaDivaCucina said...

Happy New Years, Buzzy! Hope you get $$$ for the Boy Scouts! C U later!

Boxer said...

Happy New Year Buzz!! Thanks for joining and for adding more loot to the charity pot we have going. I also love the Buzz in the grass skirt. Very festive!

It's been years since I've been up past midnight. I'm happy this year because most of you are out of my time zone and with auto publish I'm all set!!!

Have fun today making food and swing by when you can. I'll be back to check for any updates. Post pictures of what you're making for your party?

Native Minnow said...

Yeah, that game was a little easier than Troll's bar maid game. I got 248, and only killed a few of Springfield's innocents before Devil Flanders took me out.

Happy New Year!

moi said...

Oh, goody, another game! Awesome charity choice. See ya later. Dressed, I assume?

Aunty Belle said...

Whoo-hoo! Another game.

Happy New Year's BuzzK. The Boy Scouts is perfect>

"Boxer's Bloggapalooza" is the best name I've heard for these shenanigans. Enjoy NYE at Stately Kill Manor in Gotham City West.

Heff said...

Happy New Year, Buzz !

Intuitive Eggplant said...

Happy New Year, Buzz! A great charity you've chosen. I'm up with a new post featuring Bacon and Blue Cheese Dip to contribute to Moi's fine spread. And I'll be back in the morning with brunch for all. Now gotta go work on that auto-launcher thingie myself :)

Jean said...

Boy Scouts = excellent choice.

Happy New Year via Boxer's partayyyyyy!

Boxer said...

you made a garland!!!!!! most excellent. and I agree with Troll "Bloggapalooza" is funny.

moi said...

Your garland is my most favorite so far. Whoo hoo! Chickory's up to $60 for her charity! Best drop by her place and let her know, because she's drinking heavily and playing with fireworks!

LaDivaCucina said...

I laughed out loud over the Blistex comment! Buzz, you are a fire about to happen! I learned a Christmas tree trick: Take a power strip and use plastic zip ties to secure it to the trunk, then you'll have all the outlets you need, you can do three light per socket, after that you risk blowing them! Moi has some pisco sours, Karl has some Irish coffees (but MJ and I have been drinking the whiskey straight, he already had to go out and get more!) I just put up a you tube mini mix in Boxer's comments, check it out! C U later!

Karl said...

Happy New Year Buzz Kill!

Now instead of looking for news stories about snow blower accidents, I have to look for house fires. Did your town go into "nuclear boost mode" when you plug in?

Wishing you, Mrs. Buzz and the boys all the best in new year!

chickory said...

Get out!

you did it! oh i love it. thrilled and you had no help from the missus? I LOLed the blistex comment. d' oh: a theme so personal and yet -universal. Another 10 in the kitty for heather.

thank you! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!

Aunty Belle said...

That garland thang is killin' me BuzzK! Ya has mah %100 sympathy. How'd ya git yores done so early, wif the cokkin' an all?

Knows youse a busy Buxxy cause' youse AWOL. Least, the party is at youre place so ya doan have ter drive home!!


Have a lovely evenin' wif the MRs (yes, she done good on the tree selection).

Buzz Kill said...

The sad part is that I didn't make up the Blistex story. The Mrs keeps like 6 or 8 in the kitchen utility drawer and (apparently) no glue stick. Who knew?

And as for the electrical catastrophy-waiting-to-happen outlet, that's actually scaled back from previous years. So I'm confident I won't be doing any stopping, dropping or rolling tonight. Unless I can get the Mrs all liquored up.

Sighing off for the night. Everyone have a Happy New Year! Doh, this comment is going to cost me money.

fishy said...

YOur garland is buzzed?
How appropriate.
Awesome that you did one.
I hope chickory gives Heather and kids a picture of all the garlands.

Aunty Belle said...

thas' BUZZY, not Buxxy--I ain't buzzed, jes' so OVER this garland thang. Gotta go--late date now, y'all have fun

foam said...

Hey, just thought i'd drop in and wish a happy new year to a fellow garland maker. i come via chickory, but i've seen your name out and about on other blogs too.

Intuitive Eggplant said...

Your garland (and blistex comment) are to funny for words! Good luck with your NYE festivities, Buzz, and stop by my place in the morning for brunch - you won't have to do any cooking at all :)

Dani said...

Happy New Year Buzz!

moi said...

Happy New Year, Buzz! I hope you got to celebrate in a manner worthy of your awesomeness. Party on.

LaDivaCucina said...

Morning, Buzzy, just thought I'd drop in and get one more comment in before the deadline! Happy New Year, hope you don't have too much clean up. But wait, isn't that what kids are for?! haha!

LaDivaCucina said...

Morning Buzz! When you get some time, would you be so kind as to send your final donation tally to Boxer? Thanks! Mighty kind of you to host and donate, I'm so proud of my blogging friends with their big, generous hearts!
