Holiday Dinner Party Humor

Now that all of the holiday events are behind us, including that long stretch of food-eating extravaganzas from Thanksgiving dinner, Christmas parties through New Year’s Day buffets, we can now reflect on 2013 and resolve for 2014. Here’s a funny video about guests and their many eating quirks. Lucky me, I can eat almost anything!

I’m tacking on this 2013 annual report from WordPress.  The kindly people at WordPress noted that many of my top posts were not written this past year.  Rather than saying that I was lazy in 2013, they said this:  “Some of your most popular posts were written before 2013. Your writing has staying power! Consider writing about those topics again.”    Hope to see you all in 2014.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 36,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 13 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

  3. Money goes with money. In my wordpress report they compared my number of visitors to people stuck on five NY subway cars.
    Happy New Year.

    I have to somehow print out the script from the video and read it to my husband’s family this Christmas. Or maybe I’ll just put a lap top on the middle of the dinning room table! Too funny.


  6. Bonne année & bonne santé! 🙂

    wish you a life path sprinkled with love and fun petals – optimism, fullness, balance, serenity and reflection… as the French gastronomy is the only one accepted by UNESCO as World’s heritage, here is the menu for 2014: start with a happiness cocktail, enjoy the friendship soup and its health “gratin”, treat yourself with the love filet and its crazy sauce, then smoothly finish with the harmony chocolate log… well, relish every second of this new year under a champagne shower and a waterfall of smiles… 🙂
    * * *
    bonus – some humor, too… 🙂
    life offers us daily opportunities or reasons to be cheerful and smiling… let’s start this new year with a few smiles that I received from my québécois friends… help yourselves, please! 🙂

    love is like Québec: it starts with a Q(cul=butt!) and ends up with a beak(kiss)…
    * * *
    doing the dishes is like making love: you have to restart every day…
    * * *
    the worst sentence you could hear when you are making love is:”hey honey, I’m back…”
    * * *
    never make love on Saturday night because if it rains on Sunday, you won’t know what to do…
    * * *
    love is like mathematics: if you don’t pay attention, 1+1 = 3, so be careful!… and like rugby, too: it starts with a dab and it ends with a tackle…
    * * *
    men are like blue jeans: you must try them before finding the right one…
    * * *
    conclusion: love is a word, love making is a game, so play the game and forget the word… a kiss is a word, too, come over and let’s make a speech! 🙂


  7. I got the same message from WordPress. My work has “staying power” and perhaps I should write about things I did in the past because that’s what people are so interested in. Here’s looking in the rear view mirror in 2014!


  8. Happy New Year Cathy. Wow, 36,000 views is fabulous. And some of those stat’s are so silly because just as something you wrote about 3 years ago may by now have received tons of views, eventually, so to may a new topic you write about tomorrow. I love that we can all blog about whatever fresh or new subjects/topics that speak to us today and not be pushed into writing more about topics we already wrote about in the past. Your blog is a delight to follow. It’s great to be back and to have time to catch up on all your lovely posts. { }
