We ushered out 2010 in the most respectful way we knew how: eating cheese fondue, discussing our favourite moments from a generous year, drinking beer, playing Cranium (Canadian edition!), and lighting table bombs.
A table bomb, you ask?
Why yes, a table bomb.
I had no idea that such things even existed, but they do and they're fun! It's a cylinder shaped canister that is stuffed with treats, and there's a fuse sticking out the bottom of the canister. You strike a match, light the fuse and wait for the POP as the lid blasts off the canister and all the goodies inside--like masks! and party hats! and whistles! and fake noses and lips! and streamers!and News Years Eve pigs!--explode all over the living room.
You buy these in the grocery store!
We lit three of them!
Goodbye 2010 and hello 2011.
It was a blast.
