Pet People Party Planning by Stacey
Okay, kids!!! I have been anointed the Social Director for the Pet People. Don't ask me how that happened!! I think it should be "B"! But, I don't get paid enough to think. So, that may be my problem. I would like to apologize for not inviting the UNIVERSE to dinner on Friday!!!!! GEEZ! Get over it already!!! (Adrienne and Skeeter, you know who you are.) And just to correct Sandy, she did not say KITTEN. She said KI-UN. Trust me, their were NO "T's" in the word the way she said it. They didn't have to make fun of her. She did it herself.
So, to make amends, I want to invite all our Pet People friends to the FIRST BIG PET PEOPLE PARTY!! A real party, not just dinner out. Dinner is great for small groups, but as B noted in his reply to Sandy's post below, you can really only talk to those folks sitting near you. So, next time, we want to eat and then be able to socialize with all our pet friends.
Here is the basic preliminary outline. We are looking at Friday, August 24th. Friday is best for several reasons, and if you need to know, I'll tell you. But, trust me, Friday is best. This date is far enough out so that people can put it on their calendar and actually plan to attend. But, it isn't too far away. Our fearless leader still wants to have us out to the country for a party on the new deck (just don't tell the Boss), and wants to do that in September sometime, so it will be cooler than it is now. So, this will give us a fun activity to carry us over until then.
Now, the real planning begins. B and I have discussed the crew getting together at a restaurant for dinner and then folks heading over to his and Jeremy's pad for FUN (drinks, games, chit chat, WHATEVER). Here is where I need the input of my Pet People friends. Do we want to all meet for dinner as a group, or do we want to just dine on our own??
If we dine on our own, then folks that have things that need to be done after work, before party time, can get those things done. We can all arrange a set time to converge at B's house for the "Madison Street Jamboree". OR, we can all eat together like some of us did on Friday, then convoy over to B's place. Those that cannot make dinner, can come on over to B's at their leisure.
We are planning a BYOB type atmosphere at B's house (much cheaper than drinking out), and smoke free for Pam!! Everyone can bring their own poison and we'll have some munchies! We can bring games, B can spin some tunes, you name it!!
I would like everyone to post their ideas on what they would like to do, and to let me know if the 24th works for them. If you would like to be involved and are not currently in Sandy's Pet People email list, please send Sandy your information. This is strictly for us Pet People, and it would be used to arrange events like this. Once we get down to final plans, it is more efficient to go through email than the blog. You can send your info to her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Okay, the pics are collages of Friday's dinner. Dad-burn that Jeremy! He managed to not get in any of them!! SINCE I WAS EDITED BY THE BLOG POLICE, THE TOP PHOTO HAS CHANGED!!! The top one is Barbara and Amy from the Humane Society; Dragon in the insert; then me and my purty hat. The second one is Pam and Flyboy up top; then B, the Boss, Sandy, Jen, Stacy (from the Leaf, not me), and Flyboy; then me on the right (without my purty hat). I will email pics to all of you later!!
