WE’RE TURNING BLACK & BLUE!
(in a good way)
I’m still smarting over my absence from the RWA National Conference in New York this week, especially since tonight would be “party night” pretty much across the board. Kensington’s party, St. Martin’s Press/Macmillan’s party, & most especially Harlequin’s legendary Black & White Party held for its authors at the Waldorf. All of which I would be attending if I were there. :crying
So I need to compensate. I need to do something to alleviate this crushing disappointment weighting me down.
Which is why I’m throwing a Black & Blue Party!
A.) Because black & blue are the colors of depression, which I haz.
B.) Because this is The Dungeon, for heaven’s sake—beatings & bruises are par for the course.
C.) Because I’m covered in bruises from banging my head against my desk really hard for missing what is sure to be the best time ever!
& D.) Because it’s a nice counterpart, I think, to Harlequin’s Black & White Party—for all the reasons mentioned above.
Those of us who are homebound & RWA-less are going to make our own fun, right? Hell to the yes!
First, you need a dress. Here’s mine:
Next, we need super-hot shoes:
And drinks! We can’t forget the beverages:
We are also serving a very special dessert in honor of our very own Darling Jessica‘s birthday today. Happy Birthday, Jessica…this one’s for you! (But you do have to share. :eats )
All right, I’m ready to party! Now it’s your turn…
What are you wearing?
And what should we listen to? Can you think of any great music that would qualify as (or cause us to be) “black & blue”?
Give me a blow-by-blow (get it? “blow-by-blow”…bruises *snicker*) of your look for today’s Black & Blue Party, & then let me know what your plans are for the party. Hoping to rub elbows with the rich & famous? Meet Mr. Right? Be a sad & lonely wallflower? Or simply avoid walking out of the restroom with toilet paper sticking out of the waistband of your dress? :bart
