.. informed via email today by my buddy James in Scotland, I am happy to hear that today is the summer solstice... damn, and I don't have a thing to wear...

... I hate it when holidays sneak up on me like this...

.... although I have never celebrated Solstice Day before, this year will be a first... I just have to figure out what I need to do to properly accentuate the day.. perhaps a bonfire and some quasi-religious bugle-blowing.... maybe some naked dancing on the patio?... sloshing wine and padding my little feet on the smooth, flat patio stones with a pagan beat?.... I just don't know.... goodness, I hate being unprepared like this...

... any suggestions would be greatly appreciated....

I usually opt for naked dancing but, to each his own I guess . . . ;0

I have "heard" one celebrates, naked, with bongo drums, by a body of water....

-don't ask

... damn, I need to buy some bongos...

Bullshitted by Eric on June 21, 2006 08:58 AM

In lieu of bongos could you just use a coffee can with a tight lid? I wouldn't want to see you going to such expense for one holiday...

There are members of my family that do the naked dancing thing *ahem not me*. My vote is naked dancing. It just seems so... primal!

Fireworks, lots of fireworks, but cut back on the naked dancing crap would not want you to lose your balance and up being impaled by your horny tree. I think your suppose to also burn some sort of meat and have mead or something.

Naked dancing around the horny tree while holding a piece of chared meat in one hand and mead in the other hand.

That about sums it up.

Hey buddy...."maybe some naked dancing on the patio?..."?? wth?
Hear me now and listen to me later!
If you think you're gonna be dancing naked "on the patio" ya better bring a plentitude of Scotch and Irish whisky!

Most of the heathens I know celebrate it skyclad (aka: clothing optional), so your birthday suit should do just fine.

I recommend a bonfire, some libations to the gods (aka: drink some ale and pour a smidge on the ground), and wild sex with the missus under the stars. After all, you're surrounded by jungle. Who will know?

Great joints of meat, seared by a hot charcoal fire.

A multitude of libations of aged Scottish whisky.

A deck from which you can soak up the Natural Atmosphere.

Bongos and naked tapdancing optional.

I'm with Tammi; we want video!
(or a picture at least) - I think it'd be cute if you did the naked dancing with your highfalutin shoes on to give it the special "Eric" touch...

Bullshitted by Lisa W. on June 21, 2006 02:12 PM

It is my understanding that naked dancing is definitely a part of the whole ritual, as is tossing a bit of an offering to the North, South, East, and West. An offering of flour, wine, and something else... All in an attempt to garner blessings. Oh! And a bit of sage in the fire to chase away evil spirits. That's the ticket...

Speaking of tickets, are you going to sell any to see your little show later this evening??

If there's nekkid dancin' involved, I don't want to see no pictures, but I ain't worried. Hell, you can't leave the parts of you that go unprotected all the time in the sun for very long, I know damn well you can't get the ummmm... protected... parts in the sun at all.
