You've got a few days to whip up some imaginary party snacks. You won't need a few days though because all you have to do is think, "I'd like to bring some of those bits and bites things to Heidi's pretend party" and boom - DONE!
I do love fake parties. I don't have to clean up before. Or after. Doesn't cost anything. Nobody has to drive in bad weather to get here. You can be goofy and tipsy in the comments section without jeopardizing your actual work!
So bring your virtual refreshments, memorize the words to "you're a mean one, Mr Grinch" and get ready to pretend-party!!
Got a few bonuses planned this year.
I've got an actual photographer working for me this year. So take that, House Country Beautiful Home Magazine!!! And, there will be some special guests! (No, not Johnny Depp. He's busy looking for Christmas themed pirate-y things to hang around his neck and sends his best wishes, I'm sure).
Also it's supposedly the end of the world, since the ancient Mayans got bored and decided to go plant something or start a war or something. Or - like this. "Guys I have to quit working on the calendar or my mom won't let go to the next public sacrifice...."
"Yeah my dad told me I have to move the llamas and the next two millennia on the calendar will have to wait ..."
But the last three times the world was supposed to end were very anticlimactic so I say we do it up right. And by that I mean, check in between lunh and barn cleaning and school bus driving or whatever you do for real, while a whole other alternative universe is unfolding at my partaaayyyyy!!!!
