New Year's Eve Poll





At Christmas I had left over whipped cream, and I suggested to our guests that I had enough left over to fill some pie pans and toss them around. No one encouraged me. So imagine how hip I felt when I read this by burlesque queen Dita Von Teese, in L.A. Times today:

What was your most memorable New Year's Eve?

Last year I invited all my closest friends over to my new house in Hollywood that I had just moved into, and I went to Marie Callender's and bought every cream pie that they had -- about $500 worth -- coconut cream, lemon meringue, and we all paired up and took pies in the face from our best friends. But first we made outfits out of trash bags. So we had a fashion show with trash bag clothing creations, you picked your favorite song and you took a pie in the face from your best friend. A lot of people said it was the best party they'd ever been to. And there was pie on the ceilings. I still think I see little bits of whipped cream from time to time.

I also had a lot of leftover whipped cream after Christmas dinner: it's because that torte recipe called for a whole pint!

Sad. All I can say is, your xmas guests probably wouldn't have appreciated the stuffed opossum dog toy in the pretty china casserole dish, either. Have Tom and me over next year.

Yes, Sal. Did you throw yours? Linda, sending a virtual opossum pie your way!

Did you see the photo of Helen Mirren throwing/getting hit by a pie in USA Weekend? I tried to find online but couldn't.

DIdn't throw mine but friend made a suggestive comment when I tried to offer a ton of leftover whipped cream....
