Let's Party

This is the 1500th post to this blog. I don't know why that seems like a big deal, maybe just because it's kind of a big number. Of course, considering that 3/4 of my posts have been pure piffle of one sort or another, it's not like it's a huge achievement but it seems like the blogger equivalent of a show's 200th episode or something. And you know my motto, any excuse for a party. There will be a special guest appearance by Alan Thicke
and cameos from the entire cast of "Scrubs".
After almost 3 years I'm still having fun blogging, mostly, I think, because of all y'all, the friends I've met. I'm happy that so many of you have become (or are about to become) "real" friends but you all bring a special little something to my life. When I started this enterprise I had absolutely no expectation of that and it's worth celebrating.

So I've hired a caterer and there's an open bar, although you're welcome to bring a favorite dish if you'd like. There will be pony rides out back and a dunk tank. Come on over.

Oh, and I brought my bangs.

Congratulations, LT! Wow, what a party...love the dress. And those bangs are superfantastic!

I'm bringing a 9x13 pan of my enchiladas to share. And a pound of Sumatra, because I know you like that stuff.

Cheers to your big milestone!

Likin' the whole bangs thing you have going on there. My bangs always look like they are slightly inebriated (stupid cowlick!).
I'll see ya at the party, if we get my bangs tipsy enough they'll dance! Oh, and I'm bringing my stuffed shells casserole.
Minnesota = casseroles! REPRESENT!!

Fine. I'll be the first one in the dunk tank. But we agreed to rotate every 15 minutes, right?

(tosses knowing look to SCG and MHF) Yeah, sure, Poodle. Every 15 minutes.

Happy 1500th post and bangs day! Oh give me the balls so I can dunk JP.

I brought napkins and paper plates...its my favorite thing to bring to a potluck.

Congrats on the 1,500th. I'm awfully glad we've met. Shucks.

The bangs - - LOVING THEM!!

They're so very pre-1978 Ann Wilson, (and that's a very good thing)

I'm bringing a cake from an Easy Bank Oven I just got on eBay. I never got to play with one as a kid.

Easy BAKE Oven, that is

Ooh, and they're such purty plates, too, Sage. There's a basket of balls near the dunk tank...right next to the beer.

(tosses bangs nonchalantly) That reminds me...we should fire up the Guitar Hero. Is that a chocolate cake? Yum.

Okay people, it's been 3 hours and I'm still in this damn dunk tank. Who's next? Alan Thicke? Becky #2? Anybody?

Happy 1500th, Rainey! :)

Boy, that sounds weird. Can you imagine living that long??

Anyway, love the bangs! :)

Congrats on the blog-versary!

I'm bringing brownies with a little something "extra".... please tell JP to share!

BTW, love the evening gown, that color looks great on you, especially with the bangs!

(looks around knowingly at guests) Don't worry, Poodle...I'm sure someone will take your place soon enough (snickers). Beer?

Ooh, and Anonyba brought wine. Hey! This is the good stuff. Cool.

MHP, something tells me I won't be getting anywhere close to 1500 once JP realizes no one else is scheduled for the dunk tank. Maybe if we distract him with Cheetoes...

Twisi, I hope you brought some of the non-special kind for me...oh! and we have ice cream! We can make brownie sundaes! Whoo hoo!

1500 posts??
That's amazing!
I'm still waiting for the 100 monkeys I hired to pound out my next post on their Remingtons.
I've brought my stuffed jalapenos,a 12 pack of Bud Light (to keep JP distracted),and a very smart flask of cheap brown liquor.

That's a whole lotta wonderful posts.....and super fab bangs.....I am jealous of them. I'm just gonna eat your food because you know my standby is Oreo cookies...not festive enough for this party. I'm not drinking even tho it might make me feel better and no dunk tank either because I can't swim.

May 08, 2008 6:08 PM  
Blogger Lorraine opined...

Oh, Sling, you know how I love those jalepenos. Pass the flask!

Rosie, do you like ponies? You can ride a pony if you like...they are looking a little bored. I had no idea this dunk tank would be such a huge hit. So to speak.

Hey! What's 2nd Becky doing under the table with Sling? Sheesh, that didn't take long.

Loving the superfantasticness of the bangs, Rainey!

Also, since I'm so late, I brought dessert...cappuccino-fudge cheesecake, anyone?

Have a towel, Hat. :)

1500 is a reason to celebrate.
I'll just have a cup of tea and sit quietly in the corner watching all you children play.

May 08, 2008 9:34 PM  
Blogger Lorraine opined...

Oh, my Mouse...I'm going to feed you cake.

Late schmate, Hat. And you're such a good friend...JP is starting to look a little pruney.

Ah, shucks, Syd...cheesecake? Good lord, I hope we aren't out of forks...

Dear Mom...I'm going to come sit with you and rest my head on your knee and tell you how sweet you are. Then we're both going to go throw balls at Hat.

I'm bringing "ye old standbye" lime vodka. My stomach is upset and I don't feel like cooking. yeah, I'll just drink it away.

Congrats Cuz! Well done! I love a good party! You know me, fashionably late, as always. Now, which way is the bar??

May 09, 2008 8:38 AM  
Blogger Lorraine opined...

Sfoof, a) killer dress and 2) pass that limey goodness.

You call that late, Cuz? I call it making an entrance. Take a left at the dunk tank and passed Second Becky (who is really flirting quite shamelessly with Sling). The bar is right...oh geez. The bar is under Alan Thicke.

Where DID I put my party-radar? I always seem to miss them lately.

That's a WHOLE lot of great posting going on! Congratulations and thanks!!
