Hey ---that IS a boardgame! It's called "Balderdash" -
One time my Grandma had the word "Rudas" to define. She wrote "Rudas: younger brother of Judas Iscariot, mentioned only once in the Bible"
She won that round!
We have Balderdash! You can play that game without having a single drink, and by the middle of the game people would swear you were all roaring drunk! It is a hilarious game to play.

No plans here, just a semi-quiet evening with hubby & the kids watching the neighbors shoot fireworks.

I'm trying to figure out how to get to Lefse's for Filet Mignon, and then to Erik's for Tiramisu........

(and you are right, Barbara - it is side-splitting!)

One of the reasons we chose Galena as our home town was that we can walk to several establishments for food and drink and walk home. On New Years Eve, somehow there is always SOMEONE trying to get us to DRIVE somewhere for the evening. WHY?????? Even if we had to quit drinking tomorrow (which seems inevetable when I look at everyone older than me), as my husband says, "Who wants to be out there on the roads with all those amateur drinkers?????"

This year we had no plans until just a few hours ago when a freind asked if we'd ask everyone we knew who might not have plans to gather at his pied a terre this evening. SO my dream meal of linguini with white (why it isn't called green I don't know) clam sauce is on hold 'til tomorrow (the live clams are living on a bed of ice in a vegetable crisper drawer). Have no idea how many are showing or what will happen. Spontenaety is the name of the game. Have no idea if it will be just the three of us, or an apartment full. Do know whatever happens I'll be sort of nominal hostess (his lovely wife is sick). He always has an enormously stocked full bar, and plans on calling in food, but i'll bring some as well. Might be 3, might be 30 (in reality, probably closer to 3). But is always interesting to go to his place no matter what. So mac&cheese for us tonight (good starchy stuff to line the stomach!!), followed by who-knows-what.
