Welcome to our Cyber-office Christmas Party

What are you drinking?


Comments (123)

Don't forget, you can re-start the music up above on the comments page.

And try the artichoke dip!

...cold coffee from my travel mug left over from the morning... only 1.5 hours till my holiday officially starts.

Here's something to cheer you up:

well, I was drinking an irish coffee. But after firing up that video I'm switching to Drano.

I got here too early and posted my appetizers elsewhere.....help yourselves no matter what Abe says....

http://www.flickr.com/photos/katheworsley/2127776552/

Try the new video.

And I've got two drink choices for you: a "brown butterfly" or a brandy manhattan.

Had a beer for lunch to loosen up for the big party!

After seeing the tram in the video, all I could think of was "Wham, bam... thank you Sam..."

I've got bourbon, but no mixers. I do however have pretty much every other standard bar booze. Any suggestions?

Who's going to be the first person to get drunk and do something inappropriate in the storeroom with the hot new receptionist?

Mmmmm... chocolate mice.

You know, you could do that with beets...

Nice video of you and the missus. Love what you've done with your hair. It's brandy and soynog for me. James Taylor in the background. Warm fuzzy poodle on the couch. Life is good.

POP! I'm having a Broken Halo IPA.......sitting by the fire...tough job here..

Hot tea with lemon, splenda.

Diabetes.

I miss scotch.

Assam/Ceylon tea. It's 3:00 in the afternoon- kids will be home from school soon!

Nice shot of the fruitcake-is that the one that just keeps getting sent from one household to another?

I'm in the broadcast booth so I'm just sipping water... but that fruitcake looks delicious (I'm weird.... I love fruitcake)

I'm still on the job, so it is diet Coke for me. The Bourbon will have to wait a couple hours...

That fruitcake looks just like the one's my granny used to make. I hated them but enjoyed every bite. (RIP granny)

Alas, I have over 20 years clean 'n' sober so I'm opting for a diet cola and a couple Fritos.

The office closed today at noon and we won't re-open until Tues., 2 Jan. 08!

In honor of Jack's party-mania, I'm going to get really wild, plug-in the lawn mower, and go suck-up the leaves that have fallen off the corkscrew willow in the front yard.

Wow! A helluva way to start vacation...what can I say?

Enjoy your libations (be assured, I hit my personal quota LONG before I got sober in 1987!). I drank enough for about FIVE people...and that was on ONE night!

Party-on, Dudes and Dudettes!

___ora et labora___

-oregbear

PS: Although I'm Catholic, a friend taught me:
"Roses are red,
violets are bluish.
Christmas is cheaper,
when you are Jewish!"

-Hasta Menorrah at Temple Bette Midler!

Anybody making goose this year? The Mrs. cooked one for me on Christmas when we were first a couple. A lot of work -- it's very greasy and you have to keep sucking off the grease. But it was gooooooood.

Tough sell nowadays.

Cabernet Sauvignon. WE made it in 2005 at
my niece's Glen Ellen winery. A tad young but good. Thanks for the invitation!

Kentucky Bluegrass, Featherbed Bent, and
Northern California Sensemilia. Sorry dont drink.

-Hasta Menorrah at Temple Bette Midler!

Where's Ricky? He'll sing you a chorus of "Oy vay Maria"...

A coiupl;e of eggno gs andI have trouuvle typinh.

I usually cook a goose for my son. If you keep it up on a grate and out of the drippings it's not too greasy. I like the skin to get crunchy....


MMMMM goose skin

Nonny.. I'll drink enough scotch for both of us..

I'm going with Tequila shots to start the party right! I'll be the one on the floor in an hour! LOL

I just saw I guy hurling on the fire escape. I think it might be torridjoe...

Lagavulin, neat

Remember when they used to hold the pro football world championship game on Christmas Day? Y.A. Tittle didn't mind -- I think he's Jewish.

Loved The Boss! Off to Mama Mia's for our
daughter's birthday celebration. Hoo boy,
how I hate to go into that city!

no Jack- no beets....maraschino cherries...those beets don't have any tails.... now we're drinking hot butterd spicy rums....

Maraschino cherries... invented at Oregon State, you know. They live in your stomach for seven years.

Luxardo cherries are the best. (As are a lot of the Luxardo libations.)

I just had some "Grottines," I think they're called. Get you loopy.

I love maraschino cherries. I like to eat them until I break out in hives.

Yeah! Gin and luxardo liquor and sweetened lime juice. Shaken with ice. Fab!

I think they have fromaldehyde (sp?) in them....better livin' thru chemicals ya know..but I have fond fond memories of secretly eating them ...them?..actually the whole stinking jar and then dodging my mother who would want to use one (1) for the hard sauce to go with the carrot pudding....doea anyone remember carrot pudding?

Not to be the party's spell-checker, but it's "sinsemilla", which is Hispanolish for "without seeds". Hence the "sin" (without) "semilla" (seeds). Still at work in Juneau - though arraignments are done. Nice trifecta though, Meg. Luckily, in Alaska private in home use of sinsemilla - or even the seedy crap - is protected by Article I Section 22 of the state's constitution. (Ravin v. State - 537 P.2d 494).

Here's what has been chilling for 3 months and ready for me when I get home, thanks to Kate, my wonderful girlfriend:


* 12 large egg yolks
* 2 cups granulated sugar
* 1 cup heavy cream
* 1 quart (4 cups) whole milk
* 1 liter (about 4 cups) Maker's Mark
* 1/2 cup Myers’s dark rum
* 1/2 to 1 cup good Hennessey
* Pinch kosher salt
* 1 whole nut nutmeg

It makes my eyes burn every time I check it. She also made rum-soaked fruitcake. Best L&C Law alum a guy could possibly know!

Happy Holidays!

A couple of Christmas Eves ago, I got so bad that I was drinking the hard sauce out of the Spode tureen. But it was bread pudding, not carrot.

I'm after chrischiki (sp.?).

Speaking of hard sauce, a new dish of bread pudding (with hard sauce) from Lagniappe sounds really good right now.

I was so bad I couldn't drive home, of course. I passed out when I got home, and awoke with a start a couple of hours later to recall that I had some presents in the trunk of my car that I had to wrap and get under the tree! Fortunately, it was only about a mile walk...

Hey, check this out.

Jack do you mean Chruschiki cookies?

Haaaaaapppppppyyyyyy New Yr.........oh crap, premature celebration.

Man, I'm loopy and I'm not even drinking yet. Tried to say "private public partnership" on the air and tangled it all up.

Hey Kev, where do you live? That sinsemilla concoction sounds good. Mind if about 40 of us help you drink it?

The sinsemilla is no concoction. The concoction is homemade egg nog. I'm in Juneau, AK. You'll have to take the four day ferry though because we are socked in with snow and fog. Trust me, some nog will remain.

Chruschiki cookies?

Yeah, them was good.

Did everybody pass out at their keyboards? Or are they too busy in the broom closet?

Here's a Google search that just came in. Ouch!

Oh yeah, now I see - the recipe is for egg nog. I've been drinking lots of water this afternoon, and it appears to be rather potent.

I got Santa's number: 713-331-9135.

I think they're all just a little dazzled by Bernadette Peters.

that google search? I vaguely remember something from your blog months ago? ouch is what I remember you writing....how did we get from a Christmas party to that?

I'm sorry. It's the nog talking.

that telephone numer for Santa.....think he's getting just a wee bit cranky....poor guy...over worked and no raise in sight.

After the gentle application of $195, the Volvo's windshield wipers work!

I'll drink to that...

...and anything else.

Myer's and Mirror Pond.

I's a brown thing.

Myer's: Myers's

Has anybody been on Hawthorne today? Is that gal out in front of the Oasis selling fresh-cut mistletoe again this year?

Do you plan to ambush someone? ;)

Wow. Intense.

Make it stop!

Best party I've ever been to probably because I haven't gotten into any trouble...at least not yet. A nice red wine (Merlot) from WA state.

Well, it's time for me to go to my bar for real drinks..

Merry Christmas everyone! And to all a good night!

Great party, Jack. How about doing it during the normal cocktail hour next year!

Nice party -- I got here late, but people can't really leave, so I didn't miss much. I used to cook a goose every Christmas: stuffing with prunes soaked in Marsala; nothing better, but it made the kitchen a hazmat site. Better yet, my grandmother made hardsauce for the plum pudding that was a traditional part of my parents' Christmas dinner. I can taste it now. Merry Christmas, folks.

during the normal cocktail hour next year!

2:30 in the afternoon is my normal cocktail hour.

I got here late as well.... I had to work off-line. But I nominate this as the best one liner of the whole partay:

"I just saw a guy hurling on the fire escape. I think it might be torridjoe..."

Torrid was hurling because he works for the city and not the state. Missed out on the five percent pay increase.

Jack, I wish my wife would let me drink by mid-afternoon.

"My wife and I were happy for twenty years. Then we met."
-Rodney Dangerfield

Rim shot! "Take my wife -- please."

I don't want this time to become a dialog on marriage, but here's another:

"Marriage is the only war where one sleeps with the enemy."
-Anonymous

Oh geez, there's the caterer. He wants to get paid. Hide me.

Any good holiday jokes out there? There must be a ton of them, but I can't think of one right now to post. It must be the g & t I switched to.

I'm a rather evil jazz snob, especially in these days of incompetant overdubbed and underaged twits, but it's easy to remember that Darin had some serious chops, a tinge of jazz and a whole lot of respect for the music. Gone way too soon, and to live knowing you had an early death sentence....hard stuff.
I'm sipping a good Corbieres, 1984.

Too much to do to party. Completed the gingerbread house. Check. Wrapped mom's Ringside gift card. Check. Cuddled with a fuzzy poodle. Check. More nog. Check.

Ooh, Jack. Grandma used to serve that peppermint stuff over ice cream.

Sorry I'm late: went santa shopping for our three year old. The traffic is AWFUL.

Metrowatcher: are you newlyweds? You're still sleeping in the same bed.

Whose that hottie in the red velvet corset? I wonder if she's been naughty or nice.

I think I'm going to sit down in that recliner and rest my eyes... just for a minute...

Jack, got a spare room? I am scared to ride MAX home.

It was Christmas and the judge was in a merry mood as he asked the prisoner, "What are you charged with?"

"Doing my Christmas shopping early", replied the defendant.

"That's no offense", said the judge. "How early were you doing this shopping

"Before the store opened, your honor."

Dismounting from his camel, one of the three wise men steps in a fresh pile of camel dung. "Jesus Christ!" he swears. "Oh, that's a good name," Mary replies. "We were going to call him Irving."

Better have some of the crudité soon -- it's starting to look a little tired.

cc:

You and the Volvo got off easily. I spent $442 just to get the cluster and running lights on my Durango to work (bad circuit board aka "central timing module"). Plus the cost of a rental.

Now that Bob Nardelli has announced that Chrysler is "operationally bankrupt" I will get a Saturn or Ford next time.

We are out of bourbon!

I'll be right back...

Jack,

Thanks for not banning me (yet)! {long pause, followed by an awkward non sequitur}

Have you ever heard of the "SAILING STONES" of Death Valley?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sailing_rocks


I am constantly amazed at how much I don't know.

Merry Christmas to all and enjoy the weekend!

Jack where is Bean, I got Mistletoe for Snethen.

I haven't seen him. You may have to try over on the Vig.

Ah, we see the party is well under way! Normally by this point in a holiday soiree, there whould be some inappropriate behavior.

If the cops don't get here first ...

Satyr Sagittarius turns into horse sass and Sun enters Capricorns at ten pm

Check the overhead compartments and make sure you've collected all your be longings as you unboard.

Pablo: We did that during the Eartha Kitt video.

The knight is young, anybody feel like Caroling ?

Carol who??

where is Bean

Loooong day at the office. Just got home. No it's time to go hit this guy's party.

Jack? Do you have any Alka-Seltzer? I have wicked heartburn... at least I HOPE it's just heartburn.

I have been in the corner all afternoon watching the party. I tried to talk but my security level made me shy. Now that i know the problem, that lamp shade over there looks like it would make a cool hat!

Dang! Where is the john around here Jack? I gotta pee!

I must have passed out. I just woke up. What day is it?

looking out the cyber office window: http://64.35.128.194/en/JViewer.html

Gawd, whatta parttttteee. Crawling home, now. Hope to avoid those PDX blue-uniform guys, if you know what we mean.

Thanks, Jack. It's been virtual...

[Errrp.]

The cops are here. Somebody complained about the noise.

Dang, now were all going to be taken to Hooper Detox for a few hours...

I'll just tell the wife that I'm doing research on the Burnside-Couch couplet.

Cabbie's here. Time to go home.

Dam I'm late to the party yet again.

O-well Cheers.

Thanks for the fine office party, Jack...'twas a fine one so it seems...just arrived home from that fine cab ride you so dast speak...

cheers to you!

Darn it, somebody forgot their scarf.

Not I!

Oh, this headache is killing me!

Man,this place is a mess. Were going out for breakfast...but we'll be RIGHT back to help you clean up the place.

Oh geez...who put a cigarette out in my coffee cup? Yecchhhh!

I'll take one of trash bags out on my way.

Hey, did anybody see a ring in one of the plastic drink cups, with like a shiny diamond spot on it, little sparkles around that ... engraved on the inside "John, love ever, Jane" ... ??

Jack, did you notice it laying anywhere ?

Jack -

Gteat party...ahh, I'm a little embarassed to ask this, but did you happen to notice where I parked my trolley....can't seem to find it this morning...

And Dave Lister --

Thanks for taking care of that Scotch that I'm not allowed to drink any more. I knew I liked you.
Your kindness in taking care of the Scotch surplus is one of many reasons why I am writing you in for Mayor.

Many thanks for the party Jack- it was fun and I was able to cook for our large dinner party while at your party! Cheers and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

oh man... late to the party as usual. The upside is that, up until watching that video, I never believed that Jose Feliciano was blind because I first heard that fact in a David Sedaris book - which are, of course, full of lies.

I'm going to hang out and drink the leftover maraschino cherry juice with dave and the hummingbirds...

happy solstice

Did everyone make it home okay? No virtual DUIs, I hope.

Your party must have been a complete success considering how many times we had to go down to the cellar and bring up more "refreshments".....

As a mater of fact....

I'm still down in your cellar!!!

So, hi, I'm here for the Party!

Oh...it was WHEN?
