This blog is not for the light-hearted or easily offended. If either one of those descriptions applies to you, i would suggest you start drinking before you read this blog. A sense of humor is suggested. If you don't have one that sucks for you … find one and get a life!
I’m sure by now that you guys know that I have been hosting W(h)ine with Lynn for the last few months. I mean, you DO pay attention don’t you? At any rate, one of my favorite parts (probably my favorite to be honest) is sending messages to the invitees. You see, part of this Paperless Post application is the ability to constantly harass people and since that’s what I enjoy more than anything on earth, I’m totally utilizing that feature.
Because I find it so amusing I’ve decided to share how it all goes down with you. This time, because the service was so awful the last month, I’ve decided to have it at my house. First, I knew that it wouldn’t be crowded because there’s a LOT of end-of-year activities going on and second, I just didn’t have the time or energy to look for a new place with an outside porch. Instead, I sent out the following invitation:
See anything missing? That’s right! I totally forgot to put the time on the invite. Whoops!!!!
Then it was time for me to go out and visit (I use that term loosely since what I mostly did was nurse her) and I needed to send out a reminder:
I seriously love being a smart ass. Do you have a problem with that? Then Kevin pointed out that our back porch is falling apart (it is) and that we haven’t done shit on our landscaping so therefore, was I aware that the house would look awful for our guests? Of course I was and now they will be too!
So people kind of enjoyed that email and I got some good responses back and yet, sooooo many people hadn’t responded. Who was coming? Why wouldn’t they let me know???
Well that got some people’s attention and now I have a more accurate count. One of my favorite parts of the entire event is these little missives. Bet you wish you were on the list don’t cha now???
