BlogherNots Unite! -- UPDATED!

If there's one thing I LOVE, it's entertaining. I'm so glad you all are coming over tonight. I'll feel much less lonely while so many of my bloggy buddies are getting their grooves on at Blogher. It's just a shame that no one took pity and paid my way for me. I mean, what is this world coming to when people have to pay their own way? Ga-ah!

Oh wait! I am totally wrong -- and I'm not afraid to admit it. Why, I was wrong just last June. Anyway, it turns out that most of my bloggy buddies are NOT going to Blogher. Woo-hoo! BlogherNots unite!

So help yourself to my lovely cheese tray and some carmel corn and that oh-so-luscious, ice cold Corona, which is strategically placed on my tropical island table. Notice the Nude Beach sign in the background. Gettin' your island getaway fantasy on, are ya? I know I am. Channeling Holly has to offer up some rewards, and I'm thinkin' that my future with a few beachcomber days (weeks?) will be my fitting reward.


And speaking of "fitting" -- see, everything comes back to my current obsession, which is . . . ME! Getting back in shape for a bikini vacation is Issue Numero Uno around here, mostly because I've been fantasizing about cabana boys again. I know I said that the Cougar-Be-Gone worked like a charm, but then I saw the Nude Beach sign and heard Babs singing "Memories" and then that Jacob the Wolf showed up again in that New Moon trailer and my willpower went all to hell.

Oh silly me. Let's get this party ramped up! What are you waiting for? Dig in. I'll get the chips and dips for those of you with a hankering for salt. Don't mind me, I'm just shining my Texan hospitality for y'all. Does it sound genuine? I know! Not too many people can pull off that wholesome twang. :) Well, I HAVE been practicing.

UPDATE: I ran out to the store, and looky what I found!

Our vino lovers were whining about not having any wine at this shindig, so here you go, you squeaky wheels! I even threw in some fruit, olives, and yummy Eye-talian bread.
Thanks for pitching in on everything guys. Throwing a shindig this size can set a girl back. Put all your stuff on the dining room table, will ya? We'll just do buffet. Oh, and surprise! I have True Blood on DVD! Yes! The whole first season! Woo-hoo, and you're welcome.

Uh-oh, I've been celebrating a little too hard, if you must know. Truth is, I already twirled my bra around my head and sling-shot it around my ceiling fan. And then I got all dizzy from watching that sucker spin me right 'round, baby, right 'round, and ended up on the floor. Duh, I'm totally ditzed out right now. :) Good thing I caught my wine glass between my toes, or else there'd be a big burgundy wine stain on that berber I just fixed last weekend. I'm not sure what happened to my flathead, but my daughter doesn't like me playing with her tools.
It's all right. You can still come in. I'll sober up real quick. Woopsie! ROFLMAO! How can one person trip over her own feet so many times? Gah!

I don't actually know anyone in real life who is going. It's for fancy bloggers! I'm not fancy.

MamabearMills said...

im not going, so it won't be any fun anyways! muah ah ah

otin said...

Why does the thought of a woman eating "Poppycock" sound so appealing? LMAO!

Beth said...

We might need to gang up on Otin. I don't know anyone going to Blogher in real life either. But who am I kidding. I'm the only blogger I know.

Game on! The Corona will start up at the end of the school day.

♥ Braja said...

You can keep the nude beach, but damn, if I was ever gonna drink a beer, it would be a Corona with a lime shoved in the neck, just like you pictured...and with cheesy things...and....oh damn, I'm not there...and I'm not at Blogher....and if I weren't going to Thailand on the weekend? I'd be pissed. Seriously. :))

Gaston Studio said...

Well, congrats on your deal with Amazon girl; you know I'm going to look into that and copy you, right?!

Heading your way and will bring my own salty chips and stuff but got my eye on that cheese tray!

The Peach Tart said...

I'm there so let's get that party started. Corona, salty and sweet snacks. I'll bring some chocolate.

Those Bloghers ain't got nothing on this party.

nothingfancy1 said...

I'm bringing the wine. Forget the Corona...Give me some WINE!

Wonderful World of Weiners said...

Thank God you have a cheese tray. Those of us on ATKINS can't eat caramel corn!!

lisa said...

Wow! A kindle. A++ on that one.

I'll take the Corona and to hell with the diet, load me up on chips, too.

darsden said...

I am united, I am here my friend! I couldn't afford the flight let alone try to eat there! Lovely picture but I too will pass on the nude beach LOL So, see ya in blogland where are the "cool" people are staying!

Pouty Lips said...

Braja sent me here to see about getting a Corona, my favorite beer. If I weren't so afraid of needles, I'd get me a Corona tattoo on my booby.

Comedy Goddess said...

You know how to give a great party! But do we really have to use Cougar-Be-Gone?

Mental P Mama said...

This is where all the real people will be....Chicago/Scmicago.

Expat From Hell said...

I say we have our own Texican Blogger party on the shores of Lake Travis. As soon as it fills back up!
Keep the Corona cold!

diane said...

Your party sounds like the most wild and fun one so far, and I am soooo there. Crap, I just dropped one of my cheese cubes into the sand, does the five second drop count here?

drollgirl said...

i sure love me some corona! it is 8:52 am and it already sounds good. ah, to be chillin w/beer, lime, beach, and man love, now that would be nice. :)

Midlife Jobhunter said...

I'll bring smoked oysters. And a veggie tray.

Amy said...

I'm bringing vodka and diet tonic water because after gaining four ugly pounds on vacation, I'm back on the diet wagon too.

The cheese platter looks divine, but I agree with The Peach. It needs chocolate. And, maybe some walnuts and pecans thrown in for good measure. (What's a good chick party without nuts? You know what I'm sayin'.)

I'll be there with my Spanx on!

♥ Braja said...

Midlife Jobhunter is bringin' a veggie tray??? God bless her little heart....that, with the Corona, Peach Tart's chocolate, and the vodka and tonic in Amy's bag, we're cookin' with gas.....

And Otin can entertain with stand up comedy :))

Madame DeFarge said...

I'll bring some shortbread for the Scottish dimension. How much can they really be having without us there?

Michele Renee said...

Ooops, late again. I just commented on your prior post.
I thought I was oddball but I reach for the Corona before the wine. I have some home-made salsa I'm bringing to the party.

Smart Mouth Broad said...

Here I am with Corona and Fiddle Faddle in hand.

powdergirl said...

Hic *-*_**, I'll be right over, not to worry, I'm not driving. I'm flying. And I already have my flying-bra wrapped tightly around my head, covering the one eye sho I can focush on the airplane shteerining wheel.

Good.to.go.

Kina ships should I bring? hic*-*_**..

Not The Rockefellers said...

Swinging on in fashionably late with a blush on my face and bed head...Blogher? Your goddamned right he did! Twice... :)

Peace - Rene

blognut said...

You SURE know how to throw a party!

phd in yogurtry said...

I'm all for salt when there's lime and Cuervo along side it.

Vic said...

I'm coming - but about halfway through you'll think I left, but really I got all broody and am sitting off to the side compulsively eating chips. And then later I'll dance a little on the table.

I don't even know what they do at Blogher anyway.

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

Sorry I'm late!! Time zone challenged. I brought some snacks from Hawaii for everyone, and I think I'll have a little of that vino thank-you very much.

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

My birthday is today, the 24th so let's get this party started!!! I got the wine and the salsa..homemade!!!

Jason, as himself said...

I am buck naked slamming back my sixth Corona!!! Whoo hoo! This is way better than Blogher could have ever been!

Thank you, Fragrant Liar!

Comedy Goddess said...

I'm so glad you are keeping it a civilized kind of party!

Alicia @ boylerpf said...

Ah...throwing back a Corona and trippin the whole way. You throw the BEST party..excuse me...Was that YOUR foot?

dana said...

Wow. I know someone ON Kindle.....now if I just knew someone WITH a Kindle.

I'm bringing my own special brand of tequila. I'm a snob.

Fragrant Liar said...

Man, I got totally schnockered last night. Thanks everybody for coming. Whoever brought the Cuervo, you rock!

I think I remember something about ice filling the tub, and all these Coronas in there. Powdergirl, was that you?

linda said...

I cannot believe how those ads come up so strategically as they do--I am thinking you can't control that and it's the whim of the goddesses at play, whirling on the fan blades with the bra and you?

well, I'm here and stuffed but sadly, no fritos??? who has a party without fritos and chili may I ask and where is the ranch[and rootbeer] while were talking..just sayin' .. otherwise, great little shindig, or shinwhirl or boobfling...you bring out the worst in me you hussy you...........

thanks for the smiles too :)

Dee-Zigns Handcrafted Jewelry said...

Missed another great party! I would have been all over the wine and cheese!

Nancy said...

I like your party. Especially the wine between the toes.

Blogher? I've been hearing about it, but I agree with Kristina P. It must be for those fancy bloggers.

Pyzahn said...

Geez, I've been under a rock. Didn't even know about BlogHer. But I stand with you as a BlogherNOT. Man, did you see the agenda for the meeting. A bit over the top for my neophyte blogging requirements.

Thanks for stopping by Prattle and getting me into the BHNOT circle.

Lisa said...

You had me at Fiddle Faddle.
