Out of a Thousand Invitations. . .

What are you doing New Year's Eve?

That's right. YOU. And by YOU I mean Swankertons, Cap'n, Mo, Trishy, and Twinkles. Let me tell you what we're doing and then you'll know what you're doing.

Trish and I are hosting a swanky New Year's Eve Party. . .smoking jackets not just allowed, but encouraged! We are fully aware that some of you live 19 hours away (just a guess), but you're still invited. And to those of you who live closer--well, we realize you may have other plans, but we know you'll make the right choice. ;) j/k

Anyway, this is just a brief announcement concerning the coolest upcoming New Year's Eve Party, um, ever. Formal invitations to follow. Watch your mail.

Actually, from Winston-Salem to houston is 17.2 hours--according to Mapquest. Though, with occassional pee breaks and the obligation of eating and drinking, 19 hours is about right.

And I only have like 2 frequent flyer miles which wouldn't even get me to the closest Waffle House.

Actually, my house is in Austin. So add three more hours to that. Piece o' cake! ;)

Piece of cake? No, my dear, 23 hours is more like a whole cake.

An Oreo cheesecake would be nice.

Hey there! Yay for the invite...I'll speak to My Brit and see what he says! I'm not sure if some work friends are throwing parties or not, but I think there's always time for Lauren! And wouldn't it be fun to have a Blogworld Swanky time? Indeed.

(P.S.--what's the girl version of a smoking jacket?)

good question, girl! not sure. . .but I AM sure we swanky gals can come up with something. . .even if it's just in our heads. :) I can't wait to meet your Brit! If not on New Year's, then definitely sometime while he's here.

Don't quote me on this, but I'm pretty sure that the girl version of a smoking jacket is...


Though, I thinks girls prefer to call them robes.

Mayor, any further input on this?

OK, a few things!

First of all, I've always sort of thought of a smoking jacket actually as the male version of lingerie. Limited is our use for a "bustier" or frilly things with french names. A smoking jacket is really all we can do to swank it the hell up. SO the female version is some sort of satin cami, preferrably red with a little bunny tail.

Is the the "creepy blog guy" answer? Probably. But seeing as how we're all going streaking at midnight anyway to ring in the new year, I see no reason to make a big deal out of it.

Laurey baby,

Seriously, I can't tell you what an awesome idea I think this is. I'm really excited! Buuuut... much as it pains me, I just don't think I could make it. The drive alone would require four days, and in order to fly I'd need to buy tickets right now, and I'm simply unprepared for that. Holiday ticket prices are not cheap, and December is a very expensive month just for life in general. And I can't be sure how much time off I'll have, what the family's plans are, etc.

Lauren and Trishinator, please do NOT consider yourselves "shot down" however. I really don't mean for this tb ebe a down-shooting. By all means, continue having this idea, and continue inviting the Mayor along! It's just that this time, I don't think it's gonna work for me. Which sucks. But I'll owe you one!

But hey, whaddya say we all exchange phone numbers with Trishy's gift exchange, and we can call each other at midnight and yell drunken nonsense into the phone at each other?

Sounds good, Robby Rob. If we can at least hear your voices that night, we'll be happy. :) We knew it was a longshot, but didn't care because you're just too cool to NOT invite. So you're invited. And actually, not just at New Year's--you're always invited to Tejas. Come any time!

Why, that lousy Mayor! Turning down such a wonderful invite! I guess this means I have to start unpacking everything.

Actually, I'm with Rob on this, and only because we've spent practically the entire weekend talking back and forth hammering out our cumbersome decision. While we're immensely aware that we'd probably have the time of our lives down in Tejas, as the gal says, we're both strapped for both time and finances.

However! I hear rumor of a possible visit sometime next year. Until then, the Mayor and his Capn will be celebrating a very festive New Year in the Ol' North State while thinking of their very Swanky gals in the Lonestar State!
