PEOPLE! My People!
It is I! Your feckless leader!
I am so excited, I cannot contain myself.
You. Have. No. Idea.
I got something. When you see it, you will be so incredibly jealous.
It is the BEST something EVER.
It took Paul six hours, from start to finish, to bring it home.
The most triumphant six hours of my life.
We needed a MOVING truck.
And? The most glorious part? It is TOTALLY useless.
The whole time I was getting it, all I could think was how I could not wait to share it with you… So you could be jealous.
What is it? I can’t tell you. That would ruin the post. Which I haven’t written yet.
Oh? You want a hint? Okay…
It is not:
-Something Paul wanted.
And to celebrate, I’m going to have a party.
Right here, next Tuesday, April 9th.
It’s going to be a very fancy party. Black tie. Sparkly shoes. Champagne.
START PLANNING YOUR OUTFIT.
I will be the one in gold lamé. And a tiara. Mixing my metaphors of Downton Abbey and mid-sixties Mad Men.
You have one week! To decide what you’re wearing, book your plane tickets, get a manicure, and BRING your story.
Every week, I’m out here, all alone… tap dancing for you.
Look at me! Look at my house! Look at my stuff!
Me! Me!! Me!!!
Don’t you ever want to come up here and shove me off the stage?
Now’s your chance.
I want to see YOUR favorite find.
I want to see your BEST treasure… however you define it… whether it’s something you got out of the garbage, at an estate sale, stole from your roommate or inherited from your grandmother.
Old, new, trash, treasure, sentimental, material, cerebral.
I want to know why you LOVE it, where you got it, and what its story is.
I’ve never had an online party, and I cannot promise it will go smoothly…
Probably someone will drink too much. Or force everyone to play board games.
I will probably be both of those people.
But I know it will be a good time. There will be lots of awesome people to hang out with.
Just try not to sit next to me… I’m annoyingly chatty.
How will this illustrious event take place?
Well? If you DON’T have a blog?
A- Let me congratulate you on having a more interesting personal life than I do.
B- If you want to share a photo, make sure it’s online. I’ll write up instructions to add it in the comments.
C- Bring your story.
D- Show up. Next Tuesday. Anytime… just wander in!
If you DO have a blog? Well. Maybe you’ve heard of a something called a link party?
You get to share your “favorite find” with my readers!!
They are a discerning bunch, so GO get busy.
Write your post.
Spread the word.
Bring your friends.
SURPRISE ME, people!!
I was going to use this photo to make a joke about how my band will be playing at the party… I was going to say how I am the lead singer, and no one will ever get my microphone… but now I need to address how I generally think that your twenties are overrated… until I see an actual photo of my twenties.
If you are so inclined… tell your readers that you’re planning a post about YOUR favorite find… and that you’re going to share it here, next Tuesday!
If you do, let me know!! I’ll add you to the band:
You want to get in on this soon… you don’t want to end up as the hairstylist or the lighting guy.
I have SO enjoyed getting to know all of you, and I REALLY hope you’ll play along!!!
I can’t wait to see what you come up with!!
Follow me on twitter, and I’ll remind you a few days before… but in a totally non-irritating way.
Or PIN IT.
Why? I don’t know…
Because Pinterest is full of all the other crap on the internet, why not this too?
FUN things are happening here people!!!
If this were high school, I’d have turned out a LOT differently.
PLUS?? I’m working on my first giveaway!
Because I love you!!! And I want to give you nice things!!!
Or just buy your love… whatever works for you.
UPDATE– THIS was my find… the linkup stopped working because the tech/widget/thing I used got discontinued/wonky.
I’ll love you even more, if you share me with your friends…
