The Pleasure of Your Company . . .
. . . is requested right here right now at a HOUSEWARMING in honor of Bucky's moving into her new home. This is the first time she'll be living alone. Well, sorta. Alone plus three cats. And she's going to need some things and stuff. Here's where we come in. Right here. Through the pink door:
OK, simma down. As much as we would all like to go through that door (and you know you would), this isn't the ACTUAL house. But it is a reasonable facsimile thereof. Because Bucky's new home will be just as exciting, as warm and squishy as the one you see here.
With a certain amount of virtual arm-twisting, my dear sister/godmother/fiancee has agreed to let us throw her a housewarming! No, wait, this is Bucky we're talking about. Let's make it a House Hotting!
Please wish her some wishes, and then go send her some things and stuff,
and here: Walmart
and here: Bed, Bath & Beyond.
At the first two places, click on "Wishlist," then type in her name, Katy Barzedor, and that will take you to her own personal gift registry; at BB&B, click on "Bridal & Gift Registry," then type in her name, etc. You can shop to your heart's content, and the stores will ship the stuff right to her hot little hands. Couldn't be easier. (There may or may not be other online registries on which her name appears, on which may or may not be items which may or may not include words like "plug," or "life-like," but this is not that kind of party; you'll have to deal directly with Bucky if that's your particular shopping bent.)
We're talking fresh start time, friends. Fresh as a newly opened can of Play-Doh. Let's make sure Bucky has everything she needs and many things she wants.
This invitation brought to you by Squirl, Eclectic and me. We are the ones who made all the delicious imaginary food, and supplied all the fine virtual beverages, to which you may now help yourselves.
I stole this picture. Because it was entitled "a good spread." Can you imagine a better menu for a hootenanny in Bucky's honor?
This is Alcazar, our bartender. He's stolen too. Help yourselves.
And we are also the ones providing live entertainment on the half-hour.
When Bucky heard that we were having live entertainment at her party, she asked, "For strictly artistic purposes, could the entertainment have huge bazongas?" I believe "bazonga" is an Arabic word for those shiny belty things that Eclectic, Squirl and I are wearing here :) Um, the top pic is before the hors d'oeuvres; the bottom is after. Like we said, a good spread.
Just make up any entertaining acts you'd like us to perform, and that's what we're doing, right there in your heads. It's all imaginary anyway, so why not? Um, that is, except the part about the new home, and the part where you whip out the credit card and go to those links. That part is very real. :)
I know that many of you love Bucky as we do, and would like to bring food, beverages, and your own entertainment offerings to the party. Please let us know here what you have brought to share with us . . .
And we thank you very kindly, on behalf of our dear sister.
