Are You Lame - 2013 Edition

Lucky that Wifey has low enthusiasm for going out NY Eve. 

Dinner at our house (for the LAME) from the past and the present.

(Different Evite entries)

From 2010:

Are you lame?  (We are)

Do you lamely want to be in bed before midnight?  (We do)

Are you going to get a dinner reservation where they warn you that you HAVE TO finish dinner in 2 hours because there's another booking after yours? (We're not)

Do you look forward to a Prix Fixe menu in which you're told what you can order? (We don't)

Do you want to get home, safely before the drunks hit the road?  (We do)

Are you just too old and cranky to Party Like It's Nineteen...Ninety-Nine? (We are)

Do you even understand that last reference? (We do)

If you are as lame as us, please RSVP and join us for a New Year's Eve dinner.  The menu is undecided - but the wine will be excellent.

No worries if you are un-lame.  By 2011, we will have forgiven you for being cooler than us. 



For 2013:


Are you lame?  (We are)

Do you lamely want to be in bed before midnight?  (We do)

Have you dozed off in front of the TV and struggled to keep your head up waiting for midnight? (We have)

Have you realized that some people booked the prime dinner reservations months ago and your best choice is a restaurant you go to anyway? (We no care)

Do find that many of the people you want to celebrate New Year's Eve are as unenthusiastic about going out as you are?  (We do)

Do you want to get home, safely before the drunks hit the road?  (We do)

Are you old and cranky and can't keep up with "those kids"?  (We can't)

Are you wondering it it's going to be cold and rainy or nice and dry when watching firewords? (We won't)

Will you be elbowing your way through crowds downtown just to get to a restaurant?  (We decline)

If you are as lame as us, please RSVP and join us for a New Year's Eve dinner.  The menu is undecided - but the wine will be excellent.

No worries if you are un-lame.  By 2014, we'll find lame people to replace your un-lame-ass!

    This sounds so nice. We have been invited to a NYE party. I'm sure it will be a very fun party; old friends are hosting. Oldest DS is too old for us to use a babysitter anymore (14), but I'm really hesitant to the leave all 3 kids alone together until after midnight. But, hubby is not. So, what to do? I wish we had lame friends that served excellent wine inviting us to an early NYE party. Maybe it should be us having the party....

  2. Oh I love that idea. My NYE's are usually even tamer than that. Letting the kids stay up too late and playing board games. Excellent wine would help :)
