D: So what are we doing for the party tonight?
The phrase “Whaaa?” comes to mind.
OK, so here’s the deal. I decided to throw a Virtual Mommy Needs a Cocktail Party tonight from 7-12 EST. You know the usual Mommy Needs a Cocktail Parties, right? You invite all your friends over. You drink. You eat. You drink. End of the night someone says, “Hey, what are those shirts over there on that table?” and then all your friends buy the latest and greatest in Mommy Needs a Cocktail wear with a huge discount from the regular prices online.
But a Virtual party and Friday, the 13th? I’ll admit it. It’s virtual because there are a whole world of people out there like me who don’t have the energy to throw a party but they want the discount on the clothes. And because drinking alone is frowned upon. So if you go to a virtual Mommy Needs a Cocktail Party, you aren’t drinking alone. You are enjoying a lovely evening with all your internet friends. And you are doing something fun with your Friday night that doesn’t involve sorting laundry or paying your babysitter a ridiculous amount of money to go out for dinner to only find out that the last of the tequila sirloin tips went to that jerk at the next table over who is having the audacity to pair his sirloin with a vintage Miller Light.
Friday, the 13th because if you have a good time tonight, you won’t be let down when you get your Valentine’s present tomorrow night which quite possibly could be a kiss and a box of Whitman’s chocolates and a sexual advance that involves a knock at the door while you are going to the bathroom or even better, an offer for a quickie while the kids are taking a bath. Because nothing says “Hey, Baby, let’s do it” quite like the sound of water gushing over the side of the tub and onto that bathmat that never seems to dry out. But back to my husband? How cute is he? All upset that we aren’t prepping properly for our party tonight. I opened my husband’s eyes to a world of party going that involves a) never leaving your house, b) no cleaning and c) no unwanted conversation. Sure he hasn’t figured out yet that part of MY Mommy Needs a Cocktail Party tonight involves watching all 6 hours of Pride and Prejudice, but we’ll just consider that his punishment for failing to bring the dirty clothes downstairs to the laundry room AGAIN. He has no incentive because he has 45 pairs of clean underwear and socks upstairs. I’m screwed for another month and a half. And he doesn’t realize that the only reason he is invited to my party because he lives here.
I know. Just shut up and tell us about the party. Well, I posted it on Facebook and now 219 people are coming. What people will do for a 30% off code for all your Baby Brewing purchases between 7:00 pm and midnight EST tonight (posted tonight at 7). Can you imagine purchasing alcohol for 219 people? This is sounding better and better. We are going to have kickass prizes every single hour. So rather than give them to people I don’t know, why don’t you go over to Facebook and join the party? Pour yourself a nice cocktail (1 oz. Vodka, 2 oz. Pink Lemonade, 1 oz. Cranberry) or a nice Mocktail (sparkling Pink Lemonade, anyone?), invite your best neighbor/girlfriend over after the kids are in bed and pop in the cheesiest romantical movie you have in your cabinet.
Oh, and the giveaways. Here’s the list of giveaways by the hour. And because I’m nice, you can leave a comment here if you are smart enough to not be on Facebook. A comment left between 7 and 8 EST will enter you into Giveaway #1, ect.
