Resolute To Unresolute

And da countdown is on......

Ready or not, a new year is about to begin and whether you're prepared for it - no mattah cause da clock ain't stoppin'!

Wat do you do to prepare for New Year's? Are you a hoster or a guest? Do you get ahi?  :shock:  Do you get a kadomatsu? Pound mochi? Pop firecrackahs? Go out to a bar, club or event?

Me? I'm a homey kind of guy - love to host pah-tay's but it's been a grand tradition for as long as I can remembah dat even while "most people" spend it with their ohana, for some reason my friends and I have always spent da eve together and da New Year Day with ohana. It's da strangest thing but all our ohana has always "understood" it. While my friends may have to show face earlier in da night with their respective ohana, da eve belongs to us. Pretty cool I think.

We always potluck. In fact, right at this moment (1:39am) I just finished making anoddah small batch of kim chee and wasabi potato salad and my knees are all swollen from standing for da past six hours. It doesn't bother me none as isn't dat wat it's all about? Doing anything for friends.  :grin: 

Out of curiosity, how many of you make New Year resolutions? How many of you have actually kept them for da year?

Well not hea Wassap Wit Dat! - das not how we roll. We make 'un'resolutions. You heard right. How many times have resolutions been broken within days, hours, minutes of making 'em? Resolutions are empty promises so why make them? 'Un'resolutinos are "promsises" NOT to. It's easier to keep and chances are it'll last longer thand da real thing.

An 'un'resolution can be about anything so in da spirit of trying to jack up some comments, list yours! I know dis can probably go on forevah but who knows who's in today so keep let's keep it going for as long as we can.

Da next time I'll see you will be in 2010 so pah-tay hard and pah-tay safe!

Have a great New Years to all Da Hui of WWD!.... yeah, you Lurkahs too.   :razz: 

Shoots!

  5. TwoFish:

    I used to make resolutions, and then post them in an attempt to actually follow them, so now, I unresolute to only help people when they've tried to do something for themself and failed. OK, no can help that if I see someone struggling, I just go and help before I even think about it.

    Mmh, some kimchee cheege sounds good now. Thinking it might help my scratchy throat (vog/fireworks smoke, or catch cold?).

    Have the finest 2010 and a safe transition on this "once in a blue moon"!

    So to you and Da Wife, wishing you both a great 2010.

    Chee Hoo

  12. jaydee:

    My wife's family comes over every New Years morning and we partake of traditional mochi soup, sahimi, etc. Later the other relatives will come by and eat all day long. Lots of food, drink, bowl games, then later a friendly ;) game of poker.

    Back in the day a group of us guys used to get together and play a game of tackle footbal every new years morning, rain or shine. We were younger then so the games were pretty competitive. Nowdays we just watch football on tv.... a lot safer that way.

    You all have a Happy New Year and 2010 will be better than 2009, because that is the way all of us from the Triad will it to be, "One idea; reinforced by many will become greater than all the negative ideas out there".

    I going be uncle or what? ;-)

    OL


  41. sally:

    bhahahaha! If memory serves... somebody just lost a bet.


  42. Ocean Lover:

    BL..........I took a look at your pikchas........MAHALO! You pretty much covered all the places we went to....Caesar's, Bellagio, etc....but you took hella bunch a pics! We only took a couple "here/there".

    We were there 3 days/4 nights and that's TOO SHORT to cover all the madness/craziness that's VEGAS. We went to In-n-Out Burger also but to me was "meh". Had a shake and burger but wasn't where I'd "GOTTA GO DEA AGAIN" kine ono.

    Your pics of the WYNN buffet......made me realize how scuzzy "downtown" food really is. :-(

    Curious HOW MUCH a buffet like that costs...........$25-30/head?

    OL


  43. Braddah Lance:

    LOL - you guys too funny! Love all da 'un'resoutions.

    Hawaiianbod:
    long-time lurkah hea

    We won't hold dat against you. :lol:

    Glad you could drop in and hopefully more in 2010!

    would've liked to sample your infamous delish kimchee, but currently bed-ridden in pearl city. next time, if can.

    Too bad. A couple of shots of kim chee would have picked you up in a hurry. :razz:

    Really? You mean twice in one trip or not even again? For me, twice in one trip is probably da max but every Vegas trip gotta go once. You know about da "secret menu"?

    Your pics of the WYNN buffet......made me realize how scuzzy "downtown" food really is.

    :lol:

    Curious HOW MUCH a buffet like that costs...........$25-30/head?

    If I recall, weekday dinner is like $30 and weekend is like $40. I heard da Sunday brunch is good but I nevah been. There's a debate of buffets between Bellagio and Wynn. I've nevah been disappointed with da Bellagio but we didn't go dis past time.
