10:02 p.m. OR this post is gonna ruin us, you know

It's the night before 2006 and the residents of chateau nice have nothing to do. Oop, 10:03 p.m.
Oop, 10:04 p.m. The good news is that there's no cover at the chateau. The bad news...this post is gonna ruin us. There will be no sheesha tonight. No wine. No brunch. Just the strumming of Pat's guitar and the hopeful anticipation that 2006 will be...

We've got high hopes
We've got high hopes
We've got high, stick a knife in your eeeeyeee, hopes.

We've got snow covered slopes
We've got prohibition against those who elope
We've got snoop dog's funky dope
We've got a castrated antelope.

Manuel is a voodoo doll
He's so hangy hangy
He's so hangy hangy
Manuel is a little doll
He has got to ride the tree.

Drinkle drinkle new year's bar
where can we go that's not too far
we don't want to take the car
up above this new year's crowd
it's too gross and it's too loud
drinkle drinkle in my yard
watch the stars and star trek and tasha yar.

10:10 p.m.
10:14 p.m.

slow-mo snow

It's coming down all nice and pretty. Like the fake stuff in Christmas films.

Warm and cozy in our living room; the tree smells wonderful.

Oh hello Rashmanga! How shapely you look by the lamplight.

Happy to be back.

Happy Birthday!

Our dearest Ming is in Taiwan. Due to time differences, it is her birthday right this second - even though her birthday is Dec 22, which is tomorrow. Wow - her birthday is so mysterious; it TRANSCENDS SPACE_TIME!

Happy Birthday Ming! We miss you a TON. You are a PRIME piece of ass and we love you.

Winter Snowdown - Saturday afternoon January 14th

Ok I'm going to pick the date, since that's how things seem to happen in this house.

Jan 14 2006 is what I suggest for the next Chateau Nice party. Theme: winter. Any objections? Over Voula's howling objections, let's call it the Winter Snowdown (like Hoedown, get it?). As a compromise, Voula is allowed to design the program fully and invite any and all musical guests.

Whether it's skating or tobagganing, you can expect a full Chateau Nice brunch with all the fixings, alchohol aplenty and the luscious titillating cleavage of your truly. To 'key staff' - you know who you are - please report early in the New Year to receive your orders, t-shirts and party kits.

Now sit back and watch the social apparatus unfold!

feeling inspired

i think i'm in love...with winter.
i know! who knew that the girl who preferred to take the pee stinking tunnels at york
over walking half the time outdoors to get to class would admit to liking the season of death! of course, i think my shiny new parka might have something to do with it. i don't think i've worn sensible winter-wear a year in my life. well maybe when i was in kindergarten, but my mom dressed me so i can't really take credit for that. and i know, all relationships have their honeymoon periods. i'm sure by february i'll be nit-picking about how winter never stays nice and white and complaining about the wind burning my cheeks, but for now I'll chose innocent, naive, whistle-while-i-work love. and in celebration of this new found love, i propose the following winter activities:

  • ice skating at dufferin grove park complete with hot chocolate (homemade, of course), battery powered ghetto blaster and snacks
  • tobogganing at either christie pits or trinity bellwoods. today i was watching these kids plow into each other while riding sleds and crazy carpets over snow ramps and it made me want to dust off my snowpants and join them, tail bone be damned.

Of course, this will all have to wait until Ming returns from the far east, which only leaves more time to think of more winter fun ideas!

Fun as Hell

blind dates: fun fun fun.

also: vicious, agonizing, painful.

a perverse experiment. a learning experience. an adrenaline rush.

the ones that you like - they never seem to like you back.

bad timing. 'no sparks'. just didn't click.

cliché, I know.

where do I sign up for the priesthood?

oh it's not so bad, actually. meet new people. much entertainment value. thanks for coming out; talking to strangers takes courage. much respect and best wishes.

it's like I'm watching myself on tv.

do I post another ad?

no no no. hell no

- but I won't fear those women in the bus shelters

"off-putting," she finds it

I clicked on your CL posting because, honestly, is that not the funniest sketch in SNL history? Yes, I think it could be!

Anyway, your boy sounds swell, and I mean that most honestly. I love the singing in the kitchen/likes cats/veggies on the side and the fact that he's a writer. I was all set to reply until I read the last bit. To be quite frank, I found it off-putting. There's so few truly great guys out there that the challenge of finding one can be amazingly daunting... let alone the additional challenge of gaining approval from two female friends. Female friends are notoriously hard to gain acceptance from or impress... and really, it's about him, not you two, am I right?

I applaud your efforts. I've been tempted to do the same for my friends who I think are awesome and single, but I think there's a more effective way to go about it. If you want to help him out, arrange for this great guy to position himself at a book store or coffee shop or what have you, and let anyone who's interested know when he'll be there. If the right girl reads the post, she'll show up.



F: this response is hilarious.

I think you should explain that it really IS about you two and not me - and that I fully accept that too ;-) ... jk I think she's taking her online lovequest a bit too solemnly. but her idea about the coffee shop exhibition is very good, no?

and since when do I like cats?

V: Did we ever say you sang in the kitchen? I don't think so.

Did we solicit advice? I don't really think that we did. And would you ever send your friend to stand alone at a coffee shop in hopes that someone might show up? Talk about damage control afterwords!

Can I reply just saying, "He doesn't like cats. We never said he did."(and see, this would be a good place for double punctuation, because the question isn't being properly represented at the end of this sentence)


The right girl will respond to our post.
