Where's the Party?
If there is one thing I hate it's missing a party. Maybe it's my inner Nosy Nora, or maybe it's FOMO (fear of missing out). Mostly I think it's just loathing the idea I'm going to miss a good time with friends.
Naturally I was incensed when I realized I was going to be traveling today and miss out on all of the shenanigans and happenings at Nose in a Book (lisabea). A big wang-doodle of a Fall Festivus is going on in celebration of L.B. Gregg's new book COVER ME being released today at Aspen Mountain Press.
Do I sound bitter?
Go Leece! Go L.B.!
Not one to take missing out lightly, I decided to have my own wannabe Fall Festivus with all the stuff I wanted to contribute to the real
celebration, party, Fall Festivus. *throws leaves*
Of course I'm Italian so I think instead of apple cider, I'll have this.
I'll sip. I'll savor.
I might even watch this
because reading about Finn's production in COVER ME put me in the mood for Miss Adelaide and Nathan Detroit. By the time the movie is over I imagine I'll be ready to eat. Spaghetti and Italian sausage. Mmmmmm... One of my favorites.
Maybe, if I'm not too uh... "stuffed" I'll have some of these...
I don't plan to be alone. Oooooh noooooo! GG gave me carte blanche for my
make believe personal Fall Festivus. So, what the heck, I'm bringing these nice Italian boys...
because I want them to meet those other two nice boys Max and Finn from COVER ME.
Deciding what to wear is always a trial. Knowing I could go with a costume helped. I mean I had it narrowed down to my wedding dress, or some moth eaten black crepe with dried up green make up and a witches hat. I finally went with this...
I'm younger. I'm thinner. There's lots of bling. What's not to like? Although my tan's a little uneven.
I really considered wearing this...
Particularly in light of the fact that LB is responsible for my Wonder Woman wonderfulness. At the end of the day though, a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do. I went for the bling-bling and the almost-a-tiara-even-if-it-doesn't-light-up-like-SL Wendy's. Tomorrow? Who knows. I could be drinking green tea, eating salad and saving the world with my wonder rope.
Hey, maybe I could rope me some of those hunky Italian guys. Although the ballerina is a little young for them. Good thing I have more than one costume to choose from. Heh.
Whew! That was quite some party even if I only ate the food I brought.
Some food... some wine... a good book... and some fine men. Why that's a recipe for a blissful life right there. *throws leaves*
