Grinchy?

That does it. I'm throwing a party.

Right here. Tomorrow. It'll go for two days, and I really want all of you to drop by and leave lots of comments and wish each other whatever it is that you care to wish!

I have no idea how a blog party is going to work but darnit, I need a lift here. I can't afford a real party so this will have to do.

While you're here, take a look at this:

My husband's gentle rant about big box stores. Very suitable for this time of year.

And also, just in time to be late for Christmas, I did up some new T shirts. I'm still undecided as to whether this is better than the first two versions of the logo. Opinions please. Seriously.

That's all for today. I'm fighting off some kind of illness. I must be chipper and healthy for my fake party tomorrow!

I love a good party! What should I bring? Will there be live music?

Heidi the Hick said...

well I hope it'll be a GOOD party...

bring yourself, and get some song lyrics ready for the comments section!

Life, or Something Like It said...

Which ones are new? The messenger bag? The yellow and green ones? I like 'em, and I am TOTALLY unbiased.

Heidi the Hick said...

The logo is slightly different and I took a couple of things out, and added some long sleeved T shirts.

I can't afford to buy any of them for myself!

I've spammed just about everyone (forgive me!) because not everyone's e-mail address is available to me. If you know writers who would like to be part of this project, please pass the word, but let's try to surprise her with it. Thank you for your indulgence. I really am sorry about the spam, but I didn't want to leave you out if you wanted to be in!

Aw, man. A party? Part-AY. Sweet.

I'm brining the Electric Reindeer.

Heidi - I really like the new logo better. The script CHIC is a nice touch. I might have to have one for the winter! ;-)

dilling said...

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT!
A party! Thank goodness. Things were getting much too quiet around here!!!!!
I will bring my own booze, my own pringles light chips and a mix cd.

dilling said...

Hey...Aethan Adventures and I request extra long "wife-beater" (so very sorry about that lingo...we both hate it but you know immediately and exactly what we are talking about, right?) tanks...special order maybe?

Heidi the Hick said...

Cara- lovely, lovey and belligerent? You will fit right in!

If anybody's wondering what Southern Writer is talking about: over at misssnark.blogspot.com there is an interesting exercise going on. Aspiring novellists have sent in their hook (think of the blurb on the back cover that makes you want to read the book) and Miss Snark, anonymous literary agent, critiques it. I was too chicken to send mine in but I sure am learning a lot by reading through this project!!

Bug- Is it anything like a mechanical bull?

Cindy, I am SO GLAD you like it!! and I hope all previous versions become collector's items, tee hee!

Dilling, what a relief you'll be there. We need you and your stuff. I'll put my great brain to work on a new term for "White tank top" ... maybe "hick hugger?"

LeRoy Dissing said...

Wish I could see your t-shirt logos so I could give you some feedback....and I hope you are feeling better for the party tomorrow. I imagine it is "come as you are". I will volunteer as the DD.

Where's the bar? I’m parched and, if I am going to be my usual sexy self and dance with the preverbal lampshade on my head, I NEED the bar. And I want us all to gather around the piano (or guitar or harmonica, or accordion or what ever entertainment) and sing a joyous and rousing "Happy Birthday" to baby Jesus. All together, now! Uh One, Uh Two, Uh... wait. Where's my drink?

Heidi the Hick said...

Coffeypot, you better be there to sing happy birthday to Jesus!

Leroy, your job will be easy since there's no actual driving involved! (The T shirts are in the sidebar and there's a link here in today's post.)

The Adult in Question said...

It won't let me look at the shirts. :(

LeRoy Dissing said...

Nor can I view the t-shirts by clicking on the links Heidi :(

Heidi the Hick said...

It worked earlier today. Grrr...

Try again tomorrow?

Balloon Pirate said...

I'll bring the cyber chex-mix!

yeharr

cara winsor hehir said...
