You are all cordially invited to my four-day Virtual Birthday Bonanza! Monday is Ryan’s and my thirty-first birthday (yep, same day, same year) and Sunday is this website’s birthday, so obviously there is a lot of celebrating to do!
About a week ago I thought that I should throw us a gigantic birthday party but then I realized that it would be much more inclusive to have a virtual birthday party right here on this website! Plus, I wouldn’t have to clean my house! Woot! Woot!
What’s that you say? You’ve never been to a virtual birthday party before? You don’t know what to wear? Here’s how it works:
First, you arrive by way of the comment section anytime during February 15-18. (Think of it as an open house of sorts.) Let me know which virtual potluck dish you’ve brought with you. Then, describe or give me a link to my/our virtual birthday presents. Then, feel free to keep coming back to mingle with the other party guests.
For example, you might say something like this:
Happy Birthday, Tiff and Ryan and Website! I’ve brought my favorite Seven-Layer Dip with me to the party! The glistening guacamole on the top is made with fresh avocados picked from a private grove owned by the King of Burma. (Only the best for you guys!) And here is my gift to you, a little private island in the Carribean. Have a great birthday!
I can’t wait for you to come! I’ve decked the house out with virtual balloons, made plenty of virtual punch, and that live music in the back? Yep, it’s none other than Regina Spektor! Isn’t she marvelous?
See you soon! (Sort of.)
**Quick note: Your comments are probably not going to post immediately if you include a link. I’ll have to dig them out of my spam bin, but I don’t mind at all. I’m wearing rubber gloves.**
