d. Poppy's granny pants


  1. And now my cheeks hurt from laughing again...

  2. Damn, and Blackbird won't let anyone take her picture, so I KNOW there will be no evidence on anyone's blog anywhere.

    And when I saw the name Jennifer, I actually stopped and thought, "Wait a moment, but I wasn't there?!?" Yep, I need to get a new name. And a life.

  3. Hey, waitaminute...

    Can bb see her reflection in a mirror?


  4. I have no idea, but GOOD LORD, what a party!

  5. Oh my, I'm hella jealous of all of you.

    I think I'll get a pair of those slippers just to pretend.

  6. I think I used up all my funny...

  7. Jennifer: There will probably be bits of her. Just like on her blog. I may, for example, have captured her left earlobe. From a distance. And out of focus.

    Joke: She can see her reflection in my mirrors. After she uses some Windex to get rid of the millions of little hand prints.

    Schmutzie: Get the slippers! The bottoms are made of that memory foam and they are incredibly comfortable. As well as elegant.

    bb: No way! It's just Monday--a day unfit for man or beast.

  8. Well, just color me green. And sad.

  9. What... no "all of the above" for question number 2? I am so envious. I want blog friends close enough to visit but no.. I gotta live out here in the freaking cactus and sticks where no one ever visits except the stupid tourons every summer. And I don't know any of them anyway. Well Mindy did come visit me in August. But there were kids involved so no massive drinking events or squabbling over who was going to sleep where and with whom.

  10. Why oh WHY did I move from Chicago? I could've crashed your party!

  11. I'm greener today--your party sounds like stupendous fun. But when Blackbird mentioned it beforehand, I sort of knew it would be better than my annual golf luncheon.
