Whachamacallit

I never celebrate birthdays; where I come from you get a little something from your family and maybe someone bakes you a small cake. No big whoop– it’s all good. Seeing as this will be the celebration (well, for some of you – misery for the rest of you) of my 516 months on the little blue planet, I figgered that it was time to break a few habits. I will – now this is the scary part. Are you sitting down? – be hosting a birthday gathering later this summer. I need your help in deciding what the name shall be. Because of the monumental nature of the event, the suffixes “2007”, “bash” ,“fest” and “o-rama” will figure quite prominently (Unless you know of other good suffixes)

So far, my choices are:

1. Leave Your Beer & Wine (now SCRAM)-o-rama
2. Mustard, Preztels and Liquor-o-rama 2007
3. Nuttin’ but Condiments-fest (Youse guys know how much I love my mustard LOL)
4. Root Beer Party 2007
5. Show us your (insert name of favorite body part here) -fest (Who put that one on the list?!? Really!)
6. 516 months of bliss. Just ask my husband-fest
7. My Kick Ass, Knock your Grandma Down 3rd annual 40th Birthday Bash
8. Bothering the Neighbours Since 1964; why destroy an ancient tradition-fest
9. One Tequila, Two Tequila, Three Tequila, Floor-fest (a dear friend recommended changing this to 1 tequila, 2 tequila, 3 tequila, “whore-fest”. Remarkably, he is still alive. For now)”
10. Sharkey & Muffin’s White Trash Bash (“it won’t start when I shut it off so she has to get the beer. She slips it on the front seat and she quietly says to me….” Sing along if you know it)
11. My Neighbors are Old – Let’s Keep Them Awake-fest
12. Booze Crooze in my BackYard 2007
13. The Cops Ain’t Bin to my House since Grandma was Arrested, so let’s give them a reason to visit-fest
14. Y’all Get Real Drunk, Y’hear-fest

Please place your votes via the handy-dandy comment feature. June sumthing sumthing, I'll tally up the numbers and see who walks/limps/crawls away the winner. There may be prizes involved. Maybe....

In all seriousness, we are respectable, law-abiding people who are not white trash (at least, I don’t think that we are). We’re relatively well-educated, well-traveled and civilized. Just for the record: Grandma as never been arrested nor has anyone tried to kick her, we do not want to see your various body parts, there will probably be no tequila, I like my neighbors and finally, yes we will serve food, not just condiments.

If you’ve got any others, send ‘em on. I’ll be busy spraying my beehive hairdo for spiders, slapping on my marabou sling backs and adjusting my stretch pants. My fluorescent pink lycra stretch pants. Yeah, I know – you think in pictures, doncha?!?

stitch-dom said...

Bumbershootska said...

1 shot for every year on this planet, huh? I'll be old AND blind!

Bumbershootska said...

Hey Kathy, I like the "3rd annual" idea too (I may have to start celebrating my 20th annual 23rd birthday, too LOL)

Angelique said...

There are too many good ones too choose from...I think I'll have to say 7 or 13...those two made me laugh the hardest. And if I absolutely have to choose only one..then 7. Can't wait to see which one you choose.

Bumbershootska said...

Hmm the votes roll in - I'm surprised that no one wants RootBeer Party 2007; doesn't anyone drink root beer any more?

stitch-dom said...

Root beer is not a party - its a sock hop...or a trip to A&W back when the waitresses were on roller skates.

Bumbershootska said...

Well, I was going to spike the root beer...and the punch....and the potato salad....
(Now, I've the got the A&W Root Bear dancing in my head to his theme song)

I vote for 7, 10 or 14... I love the rootbeer as much as the next one but... it just doesn't pack as much of a punch as one would like. :-) As I would like... I'll own it OK.

Pat gets a vote - I'm a proud mama;)
Welcome home, young lady!

Sara said...

I like #9, but had a very bad experience with tequila and swore off it forever....so, I think #7's the one.
By the way, just noticed your Etsy photos...congrats on opening your shop!!!

Bumbershootska said...

I think we've all had that bad experience with tequila but if you drink enough of it, you don't have the brain cells to remember that experience. For example, I....where was I?

Thanks :) I sort off bungled up the photos for the shop but I'll get it right...one day ;)
Did I ever thank you for the advice to use the macro feature? Thank you!!!!!

divarita said...

I'm going with any of 7, 13 or 14. Any of the ones you don't use I may stea... er, pay homage to for mine in October....

Bumbershootska said...

I've got to admit that 13 makes me laugh (just a little) but then again, isn't bad form to laugh at your own "jokes"?

Taz said...

How about afternoon tea with the Queen-fest LOL

Bumbershootska said...

Well we're along way from being Monarchists and the only queens I know are guys so....

Wait a minute! I've got the queens and we all love Long Island Iced Tea - problem solved! ;)
