Here's the deal:

Next Thursday, November 3rd, 2005, Master Fob turns 26, and I'm throwing myself a party. Okay, Foxy J will likely do the majority of the throwing, but I'm doing the announcing.

If you are reading this, you are invited*. Dinner will be served at 6:30 pm and after that we'll party like it's 1999 until 11 or 12. Meaning we'll sit around and talk, and if we get bored we'll pop in a Simpsons dvd. You are welcome to come and go as you please. Unless we tie you to a chair, in which case you won't be.

The party will be at the Fobcave--not this blog, but the place where Foxy J and I live in the real world. (Click on "Fobcave" to find the location of our secret hideout. I've used a special html tag to allow only true fobs to open the link--if you are an eob, it will crash your computer.)

Following are the rules:
  • No gifts. Many of you hardly know me and many of you are poor college students, and I don't want anyone to feel awkward because some people brought presents and others didn't. My birthday is just an excuse to get all you random blog people together in the real world.
  • Wear clothes please. We'll save the nudist party for another time.
  • You may go by your real name, or, if you prefer to preserve your secret identity, wear a mask and go by your online alias.
  • If you want to contribute to the hardy partying, feel free to bring munchies.
  • RSVP in the comment section so we know how much food to make.

*If you live in California, Arizona, Hawai'i, Barbados, England, or anywhere else that's not Utah, buy a plane ticket and I'll reimburse you just as soon as that Nigerian prince I gave my bank account info to gets those millions of dollars to me.

Sorry, I can't make it. I'm heading out of town on Thursday night (to an undisclosed location somewhere in the midwest) and won't be back until Sunday. I'm disappointed that I won't be able to meet the folks that make up your blogging social circle.

Can I offer to take you, Foxy and S-Boogie out to dinner on Wednesday night instead?

By the way, if my computer crashed when I clicked on the link, does that mean that I'm really an EOB and not a FOB?

We will not need to purchase plane tickets as we will be flying in by private jet. Does anyone need a lift?

Ah, of course. I should have thought to offer rides in the Fobwing, but I guess Mandi's got that covered. Thanks.

You know, if you put your birthday party off for just a short six weeks, I could come.

(On the other hand, six weeks later we can have a birthday party for me, and you can all come to that.)

Alas, Master Fob. I have been burned by Nigerian Princes too many times. But I wish you luck and I hope you have a great turnout that dozens of people blog about so I will be enough in the know to act like I was really there. Maybe you can Photoshop me into the memories.

Master Fob, Bawb and I are planning on attending. Unless, of course, one or both of us is stricken by a bus.

pssst--If gifts aren't accepted, can we bring food?

JB said...

Lunkwill and I will probably be there. We will also probably bring chocolate chip cookies. With rum extract. I have a strange (read: unhealthy) fascination with them right now.... If you don't like them or would rather we bring something else, comment about it here or else on my blog.

If Mandi will pick me up in her private jet, I'll be there.

B.G. Christensen said...

Mandi--It looks like so far you have to swing by California for Th., Hawaii for my mom, and Indiana for Melyngoch. Maybe they should wear brightly colored shirts so you can spot them.

Ambrosia--I am delighted that you and Bawb are coming. You are welcome to bring whatever food you want to, and I will eat it.

JB--I am also delighted that you and Lunkwill are coming and I'll get to meet you. I have never had chocolate chip cookies with rum extract (as far as I know), so I look forward to trying them.

This would be a good time for me to suggest my new word:

Nom de blog.

I like the feel of blog de plume better but it really makes no sense.

ps, Mandi--I'll wear an orange shirt with an orange tie and an orange scarf and sweater. And if Melengoch says I can't because I'm not orange, well then, we just won't pick her up.

I hope you all have a good time and write about it.

I have a theory that spacetime will collapse if you all run into your blog personas at the party.

So be careful!!!!!

Melyngoch said...

th : I would never, not ever, deny you your right to wear orange.

But my orange will be glow in the dark.

Notice, everyone, that Jessica Benet has been added to my links. You too can become an honorary fob by saying you'll come to my party. Sign up now!

JB said...

:bashful smile: Aw, shucks. Thanks, Master Fob.

Lunkwill said...

Jessicabenet and I are coming, but we'll be a tad late.

JB said...

The party was great, thanks so much! And happy (belated) birthday!
