Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow

You get a post today because tomorrow I'm outy 5000. I'm having my kinda-annual Cookie and Ornament swap. Also known as: Let's us ladies sit around eating carbs, drinking too much, and being snarky bitches. Tomorrow, 6:30 to whenever. I love my party. Generally. This year it has outgrown my 418 square feet, and has been moved upstairs to VonSis's place. This means tonight and tomorrow I get to lug food/drinks/cookies/decorations upstairs and set up a space that isn't mine. I have at least three friends coming who have never been to my place. This means I'll have to schlep downstairs to show them my place. This means, I have two locations to clean pre and post party. VonSis upsides:
  • Dishwasher
  • Space. Lots and lots of space. As in: we can do drinks in this room, cookies in this room, food in this room.
  • Decor. I haven't seen it yet, but I'm sure she's been decorating.
  • Did I mention space? She's got lots of it.

VonSis downsides:

  • I fear VonBroInLaw/Landoverlord will show up and not leave. And there's nothing I can do about it, as it's his house.
  • Not very cozy. Maybe I'll just sit on different people's laps, make it cozier.
  • Not my space, so I'll be a little nervous.
  • Stairs.

My knees have been getting better lately, and I'm down to seeing AwesomeKneeDoc once every three weeks now. But damn, I'm still no good at stairs.

I am going to try try I said, to take some photos of the shin-dig, as I know some of you like to say "pictures or it didn't happen".

And you'd all be invited, except that it's ladies only. And I just now realized that most of my readership is men. Huh. Who wants to wear a skirt and some lipstick and show up anyway?

I wish I could go Von, but life is not my own for the next 10 days... I'll be there in spirit.

I had a post I was going to put up the other day, but realized it was mainly female-directed and well... I realized that although I have female readers, few are around right now and it would mean you and BG would be the only commenters. I don't think the question I had to ask would pertain to most of the men.

Have fun this weekend!!

Cookies and booze are a surefire win.

Uh, cookies and booze? You're just asking for gate-crashers.

I totally have the calves for a midi, but my two skirts are a bit longer. Uh, just want to forestall any comments by saying that those are a man's skirts!

What colour lipstick?

Von said...

Lady J, boo hiss you will be missed.
B4 and AK - I'd NEVER kick either one of you out.
Red, the lipstick should be red.

So it's Von For Tomorrow?

Also, Thx for the HOLIDAY YES I SAID HOLIDAY BILL O'REILLY, WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO ABOUT IT? card. It's Chicago-ey, although with perhaps too little deep dish pizza.

I'd be there for the cookies and booze, too, if only I was close enough.

You've got to make it sound a lot less appealing if you want to keep out the Neanderthals, Von.

I am entirely open to different and unexpected gender roles. Nothing to lose, everything to learn.

I once went to an ice cream store in a housecoat and hair net. It wasn't a bet, exactly, but there's nothing here I'm dedicated to defending...

Oh, it isn't going to be one of those awkward conversations where I refuse to run out to the drug store again not because I am uncomfortable buying those things, really, so stop saying that, is it?
