My ridiculous birthday wish

Well, since I can't have my computer back, nor can I have world peace, or a stable economy, or a horse, or a full day devoted to enjoyable reading, or a bottomless bank account, or endless cupcakes that don't adhere directly to my ass, or a 2 acre lot with a couple 100 big, old-ass trees, or a 1969 Corvette, or my old man dog back, or enough $ to make a big difference in Camden, NJ, or a front row seat to the Northern Lights, or a surprise trip to Italy, or enough $ to set my mom and sister up for life, or a personal chef, or an endless supply of gift cards to some of my favorite places, or all my favorite CDs signed by the artists or all my favorite books signed by the authors, or a cure for cancer, HIV, lupus, & Alzheimer's, or....

You get the point, right? I could keep going, if you want. No? Oh, okayyyyyy.

What I want is for all my faraway friends to come visit me. You know who you are! Chris, Peggy, Nicole, Jodi, Misty, Alan, Holly, Dynamita, ChibiJeebs, Biddy........
And all of the people I read and love, but I guess I can't really consider them friends without sounding like a stalker: The Coconut Diaries, Sundry, Notthatyouasked, La Petite Chic, Sensibly Sassy, Shamelessly Sassy, My Vocabulary, Dad Gone Mad, The Bloggess, Princess Nebraska, Better Now, Moo, Girls Gone Child, Swistle, Fiona Picklebottom.....

I know I'm leaving people out. So if you read this, and am hurt that I didn't mention you in my stalking list, please feel free to leave me a comment with your name, address, and when you are available for said stalking.

So, I want all of you to come visit me, have several shots of tequila with me, a couple of Dirty Girl Scouts, several bottles of wine, and then dance like an idiot with me. Ignore the irrationality of this entire idea. Just GO WITH IT.

How's that sound for a fun weekend? I'll be waiting at the airport. And if you can't make it? Well, a 1969 Corvette should do.

Where are we going and how long will it take me to get there? Not only would I be honoured to help you celebrate your birthday, but I could also use a drink (or 12). I had to Google the Dirty Girl Scout, and now I would like one. Damn, that sounds bad. lol

Love you lots and proud to call you my friend. *hugs*

Well, I would LOVE to come and visit with you and celebrate your birthday, you know I would! But I have plans with my sister for the first time since June and if I break those plans you know how she gets!!! Also, 5 days is a bit short notice...airfare will be insane I'm sure! There's also that no job right now thing to consider when spending money, but I'm working on fixing that! :) But just because I can't spend the weekend with you for your birthday doesn't mean I love you any less. Next year though we should have a gathering for all our birthdays...one big celebration! Kind of a birthday blogher :)

Why can't you have a horse? You have cows don't you? They are about the same size....lol.

Awww. I SO wish I could come visit you for your birthday. A fun weekend with some bloggy friends and tequila sounds fantastic!

And ... if I could come ... I'd bring cupcakes!

Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Misty said...

Oh. My. Gosh.

You know if I lived closer, I'd be there in a heartbeat.

You gave me jewelry so we're bloggy besties forever! Plus, we only live a few hours apart so next time you have a fiesta, I may just show up. But only if you move away from the meth lab...

alntv said...

Let's see...I could try to squeeze you in sometime in July. What airport are we talking and when are you available? :-)

alntv said...

Oh...and I really am not the dancing type anymore. However...after some tequila...who knows?

Dynamita said...

Well, I've got the time and the disposition!! Now let me go buy a lottery ticket!

Happy Birthday honey!!! Thanks for the lovely wish.

Nicole L said...

That was too good. What a crafty idea!

CP said...

I'm putting my heart on a plane to you on Friday!

La Petite Chic said...

Yes, I'll bring the tequila!! :)

whymomdrinksrum.net said...

I'll be there in spirit!
I just know how it would go too...
"Hey D - lets put Rum in this! Now let's try Rum in this! Let's go to Anthropologie! Oooo, mexican food goes well with Rum....hey...look! Something shiny! Time to tan! Does your ass hurt too?"

Have a FANTABULOUS day!

Hiya, I'm Kristie. said...

I sure am glad I'm close by! Less stalking that way. ;-)

Chibi: LOL-I should have linked to the recipe for the Dirty Girl Scout, so no one thought I was being a perv.
LFM: Yay for plans with your sister! I am ALL FOR the birthday blogher sorta thing next year! Let's get this thing organized!
Heather: Actually, I don't have cows anymore. All my cow stories are from when I lived in my last house. Now I live on like an 16th of an acre. :(
My Vocab: Thanks! I think I will have a good time, even if all of you will only be here in spirit.
Misty: I know you would, my dear! And then I could give you the biggest hug ever!
The Coconut Diaries: No worries-I don't live near the meth lab anymore! It's a good 45 minutes from my house! And yes, please let me know when you will be in the area-we need to meet up!
Alan: It's amazing what anyone can do after a few tequila shots. :)
I will be at my airport, DFW, to pick you up. July? Sure, why not??
Dynamita: Awww, I am touched that you would travel over the atlantic to visit me. :)
Nicole: Crafty? The linkage?
CP: Thanks, hon!
La Petite Chic: Yay!!! Come on with it!
Why Mom Drinks Rum: You are soooo right! Why the hell isn't canada closer to texas?? Who drew up those territory lines, anyway?
Kristie: So glad you're coming! And I promise I won't stalk you....much.

Heather said...

Oh. How very sad for you. =( No cows. I wish I had a chicken, myself.

jodifur said...

Aw, I would love to come visit you. I just got back from the most amazing vaca!

Fiona Picklebottom said...

Well, damn it! I am so far behind in my reader and I just read this! I hope your birthday was FABULOUS, and while I didn't make the weekend, I WAS traveling that weekend to a memorial service, which I will post about soon, and I WAS drinking. Had I known at the time it was your birthday, I would have toasted you, so let's say I did. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Also, I will dedicate my next night of drinking to you. :)
