Party Invitations Are OUT! (as in, like, sent.)

Finally got my huge arse into logistical gear and created an invitation list for my TBO party, ~40 people tops, created a moderately amusing invitation, sent out a batch of emails...

If you didn't get one, it means:

a: I don't actually like you, or
b: I don't actually have your email address, or
c: I don't actually expect you to make it.
d: all of the actual above


Already a whopping great 7 +ve RSVPs! I have so many friends it's amazing... truly. What a social whirl. Seriously, dear readers, I've gotta get off this computer chair on the weekends and go out and MEET PEOPLE!

~~~~~~~~~~~

In celebration of the confirmation of the booking(s), I went for drinks (on a Tuesday!?) tonight with Milos and Izzy and some other Blokes From The Pub.

Pleasant evening again; this is so nice having something like the semblance of a social life...

And, get this, after showing Izzy what Borat bathers were (she claimed not to know):

Hong Kong R7s 2007 - no-one I know!

... Izzy threatened [promised?] to wear a set to my party! I'm like, "I like!"

Holy Shite! She even drew a few sketches... Now there's no way I can afford to publicize when and where the party is going to be for fear of 20,000 uninvited lecherous perverts descending upon us! This party is restricted to the lecherous perverts who were invited, or who are the guest of honour, if you please! The rest of you, get the fuck, OK?

Miss Izzy and E@L - photo by Milos, testing the "ISOHi" setting (no flash, night shot: at WalaWala tonight) on my new Nikon P5000. (I went shopping for a phone, bought a freaking camera, and yes, the focussing is a bit sluggish and inaccurate, however it has fully manual mode, speed or aperture preference, which is what I told myself I wanted, and it is much more compact than the CanonG7 - still not a shirt pocket camera though.)

E@L

p.s. The astute amongst you will notice from the photo that Hoegaarden is BACK! But E@L was drinking chardonnay.

So is that why I didn't get an invite, because I bought the G7 instead of the Nikon?

great pic! miss izzy is lovely..and you, sugar, are adorable! ~wink~


Posted by: savannah on May 23, 07 | 4:42 am

Spike didn't get invited because he is scared that all the women will flock to him and his devilish charm leaving poor E@L all alone ~lol~

Mate, one question...what is your hand doing under the table?


Posted by: Indiana on May 23, 07 | 7:17 am

the birthday boy would NEVER be alone, sugar!


Posted by: savannah on May 23, 07 | 7:27 am

Your invite gives me a warm fuzzy feeling. I feel incredibly loved.


Posted by: VirginPornStar on May 23, 07 | 8:36 am

Spike: not entirely, that would be rather because I used the WRONG email address... Mainly went for the smaller size and the low-light settings. G7 is rated much better at DPreview.

Sav: you know it!

Indy: maybe... I'm holding my incredible durable camera bag.

Sav: aaaah.

VPS: you ARE incredibly loveable, but you'd be even more so if you were wearing a Borat too!


Posted by: expat@large on May 23, 07 | 8:56 am

So what am I, chopped liver?

Not that I could probably make it, but buying you a beer for your birthday would be an honor and a privledge.

Plus you get to hang around with Miss Izzy...... :-)


Posted by: Skippy-san on May 23, 07 | 9:06 pm

Skip: check your inbox dude! Sent it out 4 hours ago! (didn't have your email on my work computer)

My sister was right, having a party is like staging Hamlet: it's not what you have in it's what you leave out that makes or breaks you. All you can do is offend, it's merely a matter of how many you care to offend.


Posted by: expat@large on May 23, 07 | 11:29 pm

Looks like someone spiked your Chardonnay. I know Miss Izzy wouldn't do it but not sure about those fake Tony Cliftons.


Posted by: Dick on May 24, 07 | 12:09 am

I must know Izzy better than you Dick, because I swear she was deadly serious about the lime-green Borat thong- said she hadn't done anything outrageous for a while, not since she flashed her puffy nippled tits for Mr Brown, or since she gave Sir Stamford Raffles a bj.

The be-graysuited Borats I believe had thongs on underneath - they were all part of one big party group for the weekend, suits on, suits off. I heard one HK local say, "They must be homosexuals."

Surely Tony Clifton wore a white sports coat (and a pink carnation?) and a frilly shirt?


Posted by: expat@large on May 24, 07 | 12:49 am

are you sending out ACTUAL ENGRAVED INVITATIONS? *swooning* classy


Posted by: savannah on May 24, 07 | 3:26 am

Surely Tony Clifton wore a white sports coat (and a pink carnation?) and a frilly shirt?

Indeed he did. Tony Clifton is so passe. Not to mention overdressed. It's lime green Borat thongs everywhere you look these days.


Posted by: Dick on May 24, 07 | 7:16 am

Sav: ummm, no. Me no classy. Me E@L. Lucky to get email...

Dick: ...


Posted by: expat@large on May 24, 07 | 11:37 am

Izzy IS a beautiful girl.

E@L you would look even more adorable if you would only show us your belly.


Posted by: Angeline on May 24, 07 | 11:59 am

Ange: maybe you need to be at the party for that... Or check the archives...


Posted by: expat@large on May 24, 07 | 12:22 pm

i consider myself the luckiest woman on earth...

*tell me you know the movie i so stole that from AND paraphrased, as well*


Posted by: savannah on May 24, 07 | 1:09 pm

"Dick: ..."

Precisely. You knew I was floundering there didn't you.


Posted by: Dick on May 24, 07 | 11:40 pm

Sav: Na... give me another day or two... As a first guess, Madonna in "Dick Tracey" - no it's a paraphrase so maybe it's a guy speaking...

Dick: ... but too polite to mention it.


Posted by: expat@large on May 25, 07 | 12:02 am

it's an oldie..does that help?


Posted by: savannah on May 25, 07 | 1:33 am

Bacall in "The Big Sleep"?


Posted by: expat@large on May 25, 07 | 1:43 am

no...ok...EXACT quote:

"today, i consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth"

and it's a sports movie


Posted by: savannah on May 25, 07 | 6:05 am

Sporte is not my forte...

"The Natural"? "Raging Bull"?


Posted by: expat@large on May 26, 07 | 12:15 am

"pride of the yankees" the lou gehrig story, 1942

gary cooper, theresa wright..and babe ruth played himself....

note to self: baseball movies, etc are out of bounds


Posted by: savannah on May 26, 07 | 7:24 am

...also out: movies that are unironic about American military efforts, altruisitic lawyers bucking the system, members of the English royalty, policital freedom in Asia, competent medical staff anywhere and the shimmering intellectual life of Australians.


Posted by: expat@large on May 26, 07 | 12:02 pm

sooooo, shall i tell you about POTC chapter 3, at world's end?

*early birthday BIG kiss* :D


Posted by: savannah on May 26, 07 | 12:52 pm

I make an exception for Johnny Depp movies as a rule. Ed Wood, Gilbert Grape, Dead Man, Fear and Loathing, Blow, From Hell, etc... all kick arse. He is (almost) ALWAYS ironic, even when playing characers devoid of irony.


Posted by: expat@large on May 26, 07 | 1:06 pm

ok, soooooo..we're cool with JD.

arrrrrr, here's to you, matey! savvy?
