There are so many reasons to throw a party right now.
In real life, my house is full of boxes, packed, taped, half packed. Drawers and cabinets are hanging open. Recycling boxes are overflowing. It's ridiculous and upsetting and I'd like to pretend everything's all magazine-quality perfect right now. Of course, when it comes to perfection, that's all my house will be: PRETENDING!
Man I love to pretend. It's great.
More reasons to throw a party...
It's wet, cold and windy outside. My least favourite. A blog party could cheer us up.
I'm too poverty stricken to throw a real party but this is free.
I could get really friggin' bummed out about certain things in my life but I must choose to think about the blessings I have. There really is so much to be thankful for. Have to think positive, have to think positive!
It's Thanksgiving this weekend. Virtual pumpkin pie anyone?
Oh- October is my blogiversary. Four years!
And also Phoenix was born in October, nine years ago. Aw, getting so grown up.
Party motives are now established. All we need is a date and some participants.
Now, if I were to plan this thing in real life, I'd beg all party people to bring food, because I freak out whenever I have to do food planning, and also, the broke thing. Imaginary food I can pretty much handle, but I still need some help here.
PLEASE SHOW UP AND BRING A FRIEND, OK?
What I mean is, tell others about this and get the word out. You're all invited to my Fourth Blogiversary Fall Cheer-up Horse Birthday Gratitude Party!
Aaaaand... let's do this on Friday. OK? OK!
I'll get busy finding some imaginary food and a nice pretend house with a fireplace. It'll rock. And none of us will have to do any cleaning before or after!
(Oh my gosh, I have a lot of work to...)
OK! See you then!!!
(ps - coming up next week: horse stories, progress reports, and maybe something with actual thoughtful content. I'll keep you guessing.)
