Welcome to Panic Central

Um, we now have 37 RSVP’s in the affirmative.  Did I mention I’m not that great with crowds?

Looks more and more like it’s going to rain buckets.   If that happens we’ll have to ditch the tables and just plop everyone into rows of folding chairs crammed around the furniture.  What should I do with all the balloons?  Do people mind being crammed together like sardines at a party where they don’t all know each other and the age ranges are from 16 to 70+? With no booze?  Oh yeah.  This is hilarious.  Frankly, I think there WILL be a little booze, if only in the hostess and the hostess’ helper.  Thank jeebus for Corey, she is an industrial-strength organizer.  But she can’t make the house any bigger or control the weather.  Hey, internet, you want to come, too?  Why not?  The more the merrier.  🙂  HAHAHAHAHAHA.

Yep, losin’ it.

  1. ouch. do you have a garage that can be emptied of cars? can you move some living room furniture out to make it less cramped for people?

    balloons? group them and tie them to shit. not literally shit, but like lamps and things. maybe even the dog. keep the games REALLY short, get to the food and presents quickly – and let people feel free to graze the kitchen while the present opening happens…

    and you need to reconsider the booze if possible…. vodka punch? bloody marys? mimosas? boxes of wine?

    zoicks. i’ve had 120 people at a party at my house before, but we had the back yard. i’d be freaking out a bit if i had almost 40 sober souls on a rainy day…

    I was okay as long as I thought this was going to work outside.
    Can’t reconsider the booze, too many underage attendees. I’m in CA, can’t hack the liability. Chickenshit, yes, but I have to deal with reality here. I’m with you on the rest of it, though — open grazing, short games (we’re going to do one of the games DURING the present opening so the guys will have something to do with their hands while the women make the oooh and aaaah noises over the gifts.) Good idea on moving the furniture, I was headed that direction – makes sense.


  3. I was all thinking “at least there’ll be booze” until I got to the point where you said there’s no booze. Now I’m just cackling at the vision of tying balloons to actual piles of shit. Hee.

    (I’m no help)

    Hah. You’re right, no help but you did make me laugh.
    Maybe I should buy some of that fake dog poop and put it in the corner with a balloon. My s-i-l would have a heart attack.
    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!! so very tempting ….
