Party On Dude!

Ugh, is it Monday again? It can't be! Time flies when you're having fun, and I was having so much fun at the blog party this weekend. Ya'll are some serious party animals (quite literally, in some cases. ha) There was a model walk off, a wet t-shirt contest, pool time, lampshade wearing, elvis impersonations, interventions and rehab, and most of all GIFTS FOR ME! :)

I said I'd pick one gift that I liked best and send a shout out to that person. Well, I must truly say that I'm humbled by all the well-wishing and gift-giving. I couldn't imagine such a success. I am truly blessed by all of you, and I don't want anyone thinking badly that I picked this one person's gift, because, virtual or not, I treasure them all.

But my favorite gift was from Wystful 1, who gave me a blessing. (And she went out searching for a boy toy for me, gotta love that.) I was just touched that she included a bit of everything that I needed. Ya'll go visit her and tell her how great she is, ya hear?



Thanks Wystful! And thank you all for coming to my party. If you missed it, there's rumors that Amy is gonna host a shindig over at her place this weekend.

The friendship blessing bottle sounds like a great idea. I'll have to remember this for special occasions where I don't know what to give - it could be the hit of the party! (Well, clearly, it could since it won here!) ;)

I think I'll make something along those same lines...Laurie Cabot here I come!

Thanks for the party, dude (hic!)

Carmen,

I must say that that particular gift was my favorite too! It was just too beautiful and thoughtful!

Maybe I'll see you at Amy's this weekend!

I love the Friendship Blessing Bottle, but...Carmen? Would it haved helped if I had sent you a nude photo of myself? I mean, we cats have so many nipples! Would that have counted for anything? I happen to know there were over 1,293 nude photos taken of me when I skinny dipped at your party...

I can accept that I can't win everything. I guess I'll just be grateful for having made the narrow escape from rehab.

Next time I suggest an open bar, you should really not listen to me!

Sorry I couldn't hang out more at your blogwarming party. My new theme was giving me headaches so I spent a lot of time trying to fix it. I see it was a big success! Congrats!
