Dance Hall Days -- BIRTHdays, That is!
Ok, no more sackcloth and ashes.
It's party time.
I happen to know a few of you out there are Aquarians (not unlike myself) and I've decided to throw you a party. It was quite fun last time, a few of you got to know each other, as happens at all good parties, and a good time was had by all.
So. First let me introduce you to the guests of honor standing in the receiving line. Yeah, all those people over there wearing the tiaras (except me as you can see; I lost mine in the chaos). And PLEASE, if you have an Aquarian birthday and I've missed you let me know so I can get you your tiara. The tiaras are Amusing's idea, she just doesn't know it yet. And guys, you get one too. Yes, Stucco, you have to wear it.
Des Moines Girl -- Go congratulate her on her pregnancy as well as her birthday! Oh, and she's a real clown.
Amusing – A fine lady, somewhere near on East Coast.
Stucco – A fine unrepentant Fenian bastard (it says so on his shirt) somewhere in Seattle.
Scott from Oregon (bet you can't guess where he's at) – he's got some GREAT stories to tell.
And then there's me. If I haven't met you, please introduce yourself (don't be shy now) and I'll pour you a drink. I make a killer mojito. just so's you know. If wine is more you speed, sommelier Dantares will be happy to make suggestions.
The theme of the party is Mardi Gras, and who better to introduce you to the wonders of King Cake *drool* than Mr. Irrelephant, down in Louisiana. Go on over and get a slice of cake and some beads. He's got 'em!
Music is provided by the fabulous and talented Mr. Bud Buckley, who is working on his next album. Everybody go take a listen and say hi. He takes requests, but please, no songs about saltshakers. He gets that all the time.
Now, let's get the rest of you mingling. *rubbing hands together* Many of you know each other already, but we have some new faces:
Maggie, meet Cheesy; she's a member of the Mom of Twins Club AND a fine poet like yourself (and her twins happen to have an Aquarian B-day). Cheesy, meet Lisa for all the same reasons. Not to mention that the three of you are drop-dead sexy. Actually, that goes for everyone here.
Meno, meet Schmoopie, wife of the Unrepentant Fenian Bastard in the tiara. Schmoop recently moved to your neck of the Pacific Northwest and is madly in love with the place. Schmoop, go say hi to Me, sarcastic and funny as hell. and Popeye. (Popeye, geez, I think you know most folks, so I'll let you mingle at will.) If you guys haven't met Esereth, you're in for a treat. She's a new mom and a brilliant writer.
Clowncar, and Rudi, my two blogless folk, go and check out any and all of these good people.
Everybody, meet everybody! Go say hi, and tell 'em I sent ya.
