    Best I could do on short notice. If someone wants to create something better and email it to me, I can replace this with it.


    Remember, folks, this is for the party only so if you come in early the odds are you’ll be conned into helping me set up!

    Hear ye! Hear Ye! For today we cheer!
    We celebrate a woman we all hold dear.
    With a heart of gold and nerves of steel
    What she accomplishes is simply unreal.
    Compassionate yet spunky and completely sincere
    These are a few traits that draw us all near.

    She’s an absolute beauty both inside and out
    She’s witty and clever without a doubt.
    She’s a fighter, a survivor; she’ll be the first one to share
    She’s a friend, confidant, and French teacher ~ Claire.
    With seven children, she still keeps her calm
    That’s why we all call her Supermom! J

    Bon anniversaire Claire!
    Vous êtes un rayon de soleil, un vrai ami effectivement!

    I love ya Claire Belle!

  5. Tango said


    That J was suppose to be a 🙂

    I hate when it does that!

    Happy Birthday Kyle….

    WHOO HOOO He’s older and I feel less like a perv…(just a little)….

    Happy Birthday Claire…Many happy returns..enjoy the day..your age..and your life…

    BTW…Had a dream about Henry the other night….It was WEIRD>>>>>Hehehehehe

  7. To Claire on her special day
    a visit from Kyle I pray.
    May you celebrate joy,
    with that wonderful boy,
    We’ve invited him over to play!

    To Kyle, special wishes too,
    We want only the best for you.
    The Guiness is flowing
    so let’s all get going
    and par-tay without ado!

    Happy Birthday Claire & Kyle
    Love to you both
    –Annalaise duChat

    Clair please follow the link in my name to your Birthday present.
    (You won’t be able to open it until the party starts though)

  8. Claire said

    Oh My freakin God!! You guys….I’m drunk and now I’m crying…!!!
    I love you all…love love the ryhmes…AnnaLaise…I almost fell out of my computer chair!!!!!!!!!! This is the best birthday in quite some time…I owe it all to..A very talented writer…an amazingly beautiful young man…and all of you!

    vous avez mon coeur…all of you…

    Now if you’ll excuse this happy drunk bawlin hen..has to get some beauty sleep…for tomorrow the party begins!!!!


  9. msgypsy said

    Margaret, Dizey1, Tango, Vicki, Annalaise (Claire is exempt because it’s her birthday), you’re all drafted. Set up duty is on you! Direct the potluck items to the proper places on the table, make sure the plates and glasses and cutlery are set out, sharpen the short sword… Oh, sorry, did I mention that too early? I’ve invited some rapier experts to give demonstrations, and they said they might be able to bring their entire arsenal to display. (I’ll post links. Really I will.)

    In competitive combat, the match opens with the marshal announcing, “Lay On!” And with this gang of double entendre loving folks, I think that’s the best way to get the party started. Will the first actual party-goer tomorrow morning please announce “Lay On!” so we know it’s the party now and not the set-up crew. (I suspect someone on the east coast will have to do this.)

  10. Margaret said

    Happy Birthday Kyle:

    For some reason you seem to apply to women of all ages, which could either be a curse or a blessing. I guess it all depends on how you can handle it. Apart from your obvious good looks we all do really adore you because WE HAVE ENJOYED YOUR PORTRAYAL OF HENRY. It doesn’t take much on our parts to believe that you are actually Henry Fitzroy, you have him dead on. We have all enjoyed Blood Ties immensely and feel that Lifetime is torturing us with their actions or inaction concerning the show. We can’t wait to see more Blood Ties. Have a great Birthday.

  11. Margaret said

    Happy Birthday Claire:

    I can’t begin to tell you how much we all admire how strong you are. The things that you have gone through would have toppled lessor people. We all love and admire you for your strength. And geez, look who you get to share your Birthday with, not everyone can be that lucky. Hope you have a great birthday.

  12. Margaret said

    I have some beautiful blood red goblets, I bring enough for everyone. How about a nice Irish Linen table cloth over red satin. And are you sure with this group the term should be Lay On? Whoops, better lead that train out of here. Sorry, Ms. Gypsy, has a short trip to you know where.

  13. Good Morning Everyone! Happy Brithday Party Day!

    Well I brought my chocolate chip dip an some good strong coffee from Starbucks for those of you who stayed up too late preparing for the party. I know I did. Dig in and let’s help gypsy with a few last minute decorations.

    Claiare you can open your present now!


    Enjoy! But remember tomorrow it’s back to sharesies!

  14. Tango said

    Hope you guys have a great party day until I can get there myself tonight. I am sending the Cirque de Soliel (sp?) performers on ahead to get things rolling and I will see you gals later!

    Dr. duChat – Bravo! The picture is incredible! And your poetry skills – well you know I do love the poetry! Job well done my friend!

  15. Alright Ladies and Gents, Let’s get this party started!

  16. and one for Kyle! G love & Special Sauce

  17. lwildstar said

    I’m running late this morning – I’ll be back at lunch with assorted virtual chocolate dipped friuts!

  18. Madonna said

    Hey guys!

    You all ready to PARRRTTTYYY!!!!???

    Since everyone else was bringing fruit I made a veggie tray. I also had my mom make some broccoli casserole, (UMMMMM cheesy), and her potato salad without onions. I also brought the camcorder.

    We don’t have to wear those hats do we?

    Happy Birthday to you,
    Happy Birthday to you,
    Happy Birthday dear Claire and Kyle!
    Happy Birthday to you!

  19. Madonna said


  20. Hey Madonna, Welcome!
    We’re a little slow starting today bur things should start picking up soon. Great video!

  21. Madonna said

    Oh yeah, I also brought a cooler full of Guinness and rum is anyone is interested.

  22. Madonna said

    Hey Annalaise,
    Good to see you.

  23. Open that Guinness and pour some. I’ve got some frosted glasses in the freezer. Got one for yourself too!

  24. Madonna said

    OMG…..Great birthday card Annalaise!

  25. Madonna said

    Thanks but I don’t drink beer. I’ll have the rum.

  26. Suit yourself. Did you bring a bathing suit for the pool? It’s supposed to be in the mid 90’s today. I thought we could take a dip later on.

    Glad you like the card.

  27. Madonna said

    Yep, I brought my suit.

  28. msgypsy said

    Yes, Margaret, I did mean to say just that in this crowd. I think it’s appropriate that we all try to stifle our giggles…

    The rapier fighters are warming up some.

    And here we have the official START to the party, some dude at an SCA event saying … well … it…

  29. DIZEY1 :-) said


    I love the card! I am so jealous I want one!! Yes that was me whining, and am so impressed it is beautiful, and so are the lovely Claire Belle, and the Handsome Kyle Andreas 😉 I had to save the pic (where did you get that BTW) to use as a wallpaper, they are both so beautiful 😀

    Loved It you Rock!! Oh and I’m ready for a Mug O’ Guinness, lettin’ out my Irish today (they can party!)

  30. YO PEEPS!!!! ZZZZZZZZZZZUP?! Just a quick drive by posty….O Ye of little Time is me. Workworkwork. Rescue me! *cue music* Heh. Anyways, this is a quick drive by posty. Sorry, I didn’t even have time to bring virtual food…but I will try to check back in later…operative word being try. 😦


    Even if I don’t know you all that well…lurk as I do anymore…

    even if I don’t know you that well either…personally I mean…except for what I’ve read in interviews and things…okay now I sound like a total dork. Someone please slap me before I hurt myself. Heh.
    Egads! That was painful. *g* Now go and have some fun on me for me…hehe

    Oh and can I please borrow your alter ego Henry later? Please please? And before all the rest of you start throwing flaming sticks at me, I am SO allowed once in a while, aren’t I? Why should you guys get to have all the fun I ask you? 🙂

    And I also feel like a total freak for still using the name Blood Drinker lately..but hey…gotta love me right? no I’m not a vamp, I just play one in my dreams. And please exuse how weird this post just was. Clearly I need a drink. 🙂 😎 🙂 😮 😛 😀 😀 =^.^=

    I love the card! I am so jealous I want one!! Yes that was me whining,

    I SO want one too! I am so totally jealous and I wish I was Claire right about now. 🙂

    *sigh* I never got a party for my birthday. Not even a virtual one. No balloons, no cake, no icecream, no icecream cake, no card, no happy birthday from co-workers…it’s like I didn’t even exist. I hit the big 3-0 this past May, and I didn’t get anything. Birthday’s still make me a bit bitter after that…so at least some people get to have fun.

    Oookkaaayyy….enough of me whining…and I see that my earlier post just got trampled all over. Pardon me for not typing faster…hehe

  32. Margaret said

    Ok Dr. DuChat: You have to share. Please mail me a copy so I’ll know what everyone is talking about.

  33. Everyone feel free to download the card for you desktop. I’m sure the beautiful Claire and the handsome Kyle won’t mind a bit.

    Where did I get it? well….mwa ha ha! With Photoshop In the right hands amazing things are possible. I promise to use my power only for the greater good. Unless of course any of you need a little blackmail photo or something…….

  34. Madonna said

    Here you go Margaret….


  35. Margaret– Mouse over my name in my last post and click on the link you find there. When you get to my site right click on the image and save it to your desktop. I think that’s how it’s done on a PC, I’m a Mac person so if I’m wrong somebody tell her how.

  36. Danae said

    Buongiorno ladies! Sorry I’m late for the party. I was up so late last night making the individual molten chocolate cakes. There are several for everyone. Where is that coffee? Don’t forget to add rum to it.



    I am dying to try Anna’s chocolate chip dip and Madonna’s Broccoli casserole. Anna that card is bangarang.

    Lay on!

  37. Cree said

    Happy Birthday Claire and Kyle! Hope you both have a wonderful day and get everything your hearts desire. You deserve it!

    Wow, you all started drinking at 6AM?! Now THAT’S what I call a party! I knew I loved you girls for a reason! Pour me some rum please! 🙂

  38. Danae said

    Hey you know it’s 5:00 somewhere.

  39. Actually it was 8:00am but let’s not split hairs!

  40. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Dr. duChat,

    How did my other Melanie do yesterday?? Did she have a good time? tell her she needs to come and join the Henry Bandwagon, she would so enjoy if she let herself open up to him. “It must be that Vampire magnestism I find so tempting” ! But then again *I know it’s just HIM*! 😉 😛 😎

    Thanks for the cold Guinness, one of my fav’s , I do have a few!

  41. Bought time you guys showed “Hic”

  42. clearly I need more beer…

  43. Madonna said

    Yeah Danae, Cree and Dizey are here!

    Danae, Cree, everyone…. I’m making daquiris and piña coladas at break. Anyone want one?

  44. Danae said

    Ew beer. Ick! Where’s the Parrot Bay. I am barely feeling a buzz. Did you guys water this down on me? You were thinking that I type horribly when I am drunk and you were scared what else I might do. Well I will show you.

  45. Danae said

    What flavor Daquiri. I want strawberry. No pina colada’s for me. I like coconut and pineapple but not together.

  46. Margaret said

    OMG Claire-You’ve had 7 kids and you still look beautiful. I’m jealous. You should have men banging down your door, up to and including Kyle. Your card is a work of art Dr. DuChat. Wow.

  47. Margaret said

    I’m going to have to wait a while before I drink. I’m a cheap drunk and it wouldn’t get me anywhere being drunk and loose around all you ladies. I’ll wait until we have a male guest.

  48. Melanie did great and they all had a great time and Cedar Point. She came home exhausted and fell asleep on the couch. I had to wake her up to send her to bed when I turned in at midnight.

    I have some bad news though as much as I want to I probably won’t make it to the chat tonight The band is playing at their first game tonight in Youngstown. The Hubby and I are going to show out support. It’s an hour and a half drive so I don’t think I’ll make it back in time. Bummer.

    If Kyle or Tanya show somebody tell them hi for me and thank them for coming. Gush over them a little for me too. I’m such a big fan of both of them!

  49. Danae said

    Claire-There is a little present for you behind my name.

  50. Danae said

    Laurel-Are you bringing any of the birthday weed you specialize in?

  51. moonbeam said

    Happy B-Day Claire & Henry!

    I’ve dropped off an incredible chocolate/kalua/cream pie that I used to make back when I used to cook. A little bit will do you! Enjoy!

    I’m off to another workshop~ then work~then Laurel’s YIPEE! Hope to be back to party again!

    Have Big FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Moonbeam

  52. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Hey Madonna , Sure I’ll do a Pina Colada in between my beers, no problem and they are great while floating the pool, YUMMMMMMM!! 😉

    Buongiorno Senorina Danae, hope I did that right 😀

  53. Danae said

    Aw Diz you are so close. It is signorina. The g and n form the nya sound. Thanks though Ti Amo

  54. Danae said

    I want to make sure you guys know that I will not be here on Monday. It is Amber’s first day of school and I took the day off. I am very nervous about it so please wish me luck. She really does not want to start. To be honest I don’t want her to start either but I have no choice and neither does she.

  55. Hey Diz,

    Thanks for the picture. I love it. Who’s face should I put in that one?
    (Maybe my own)

  56. Danae said

    Did I mention I seriously don’t want to do any work today. I wish we were really together having a huge bash to celebrate Claire and Kyle.

  57. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Sig.na Danae, voi ed io dovrà prendere una corsa in Toscana in modo da posso comprare la mia villa sul Mediterraneo. La mia madre desidererà venire avanti e molto sta intrattenendo!

    Ti Amo

  58. Cree said

    Madonna: A strawberry daquiri for me please! I can’t stand the sight of pina coladas anymore since I had one too many one night back in college, and well……I’ll spare you the details, but I’m sure you can imagine. Daquiris are my fav though!
    Well, got some errands to run. Check back in when I get home. Don’t have too much fun without me while I am gone!

  59. DIZEY1 :-) said

    I wish we were together also, and I have no problem drinking before noon 😉 Because as you well pointed out it’s 5:00 somewhere 😉

    Dr.du Chat, which pic do you mean??

  60. Danae said

    Signorina Dizey
    Oo che sto morendo andare in Toscana. Desidero il mio posto intero decorato nello stile toscano. Una parete intera dovrà essere un fresco. Voi e me babe Italia qui veniamo.
    Ti Amo

  61. Danae said

    Henry il mio amore. Sapete che i tasti di destra da spingere non voi. Voi ragazzo naughty voi.

  62. Ooops my mistake I somehow clicked on you linked photo in my email while I was approving your post and thought that you emails it to me. **Hic**Shorry! Hic

  63. Danae said

    Anna-You need to slow down. I think you are way ahead of the rest of us. Oops I just walked into the table and the lamp fell and broke. Sorry Gypsy.

  64. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Hey Danae,

    BTW my Mom, Dad, and I were talking last night about the state of N.O. and how bad things are and I told them if things didn’t get better soon and biz’ doesn’t pick up not that I want to but we may have to move. Her 1st though we could move to New England and open a B&B, I said oh Danielle’s up there so that could be an option 😉 too funny that she’s like OK! Me you’d have to drag me out of here kickin’ and screamin’ , but it may come to that. Maybe Virginia, Shenandoah Valley and Claire, I could move anywhere in this great country of ours and find a BT buddy I can move by 😉 😀

  65. Be careful gypsy will be mad if we trash the place.

  66. DIZEY1 :-) said

    That’s ok Danae, I’ll clean it up since I was one of the cheaters Gypsy appointed to setup and I guess clean up 😉

  67. Danae said

    Seriously compared to the rest of the country we have the best weather. We don’t get the hurricanes. The last one I remember was Gloria in the 80’s. Ok we had a few tornados this year. We have no earthquakes. We have few sosstorms and they are far between. The snow is pretty much gone the week later. We have a few weeks of really hot and humid weather and the rest is good.

  68. Sorry guys I don’t drink much so one beer usually does me in.

  69. Danae said

    I will try and be more careful. And diz youo are welcome up here any tiem you decide to move.

  70. Madonna said

    Danae, Annalaise you both need to slow it down. Just sips in the morning. Tonight we’ll get the party really going.

    The Cincy/Tri-State area is one of the most reasonably priced housing markets.

  71. New England is so beautiful. You are very lucky Dani.I know you don’t hear about it all that much but Ohio is beautiful country too. The weather is a bit more extreme though. We Ohioans come from hardy stock and when we get old we move to Florida.

  72. Danae said

    I think when everybody gets old they move to Florida. I have been through Ohio on my way to Michigan. What I saw was nice.

    Dizey-Concerning the B&B there are great colonial looking houses up here perfect for B&B’s.

  73. Danae said

    One of our resident chefs just announced they are making chicken parm and spaghetti and meatballs so I will bring some to all you guys. Yum I love Italian food.

  74. Yummy! I’m going to lunch in 20 minutes. I hope it’s ready by then.

  75. Danae said

    It shoould be. They usually have it ready by noon.

  76. Where is Claire? I think she partied too much last night and is sleeping it off!

  77. Danae said

    Yeah I tghink your right. She is missing her own bash.

  78. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Right out of a movie very picturesque(sp) I’m sure. And then of course there’s California and what I’ve seen beyond LA I loved , but the cost of living’s outrageous and property wow, but once I get my secret money it won’t matter. I did love Alaska but so could not take winter with only 5 hrs of daylight, too depressing. Who knows what will happen, only time will tell.

    Danae, I’m serious though when I get my money I’ll call you and tell you when we fly out to Italy to go Villa shopping, actually I’ll be able to take everyone so be ready my girls , it’s coming and we’re taking off to Tuscany !! Magnifico 😀

  79. Danae said

    Woohoo! I can’t wait. We will have to go to Rome once though to visit the tomb of my grandmothers cousin that is Blessed and needs one more miracle to be a saint. That is all I ask. Oh and we need to stop at the Louvre.

  80. prtfvr said

    Happy Birthday Claire and Kyle!! I wonder if our young man is even up yet?

    Annalaise: Beautious job on the card. Damn but Claire is hot! Sheesh! Dare I hope that’s not really her? What’s up with these Leos? Are they ALL good looking?

    I’m pretty sure that any chance I had with Kyle is shot once he gets even a glance at Claire. Clearly I need to get more vodka into Kyle, stat! 😉

  81. OK I’ll bite. One more miracle? Sainthood’s not easy to achieve. Tell the story.

  82. Prtfvr– Yea, Leo’s and their mane’s of hair. I’m jealous.

  83. msgypsy said

    As most of you have probably noticed, I’m a beer drinking woman. So if you want a beer, check that blue cooler over there. I bought Rogue’s Dead Guy Ale, Black Butte Porter, and the mysterious and weird Rogue Morimoto Soba Ale. Also, Black Watch Porter, Full Sail Ale, and and Maritime Pacific’s Clipper Gold Hefeweizen are on tap. Guinness does come for tap but I’d rather it came from the bottle because that’s a long way for a keg to travel.

    I also have many different wines and, believe it or not, two kinds of mead. And both apple and pear cider.

    (Yes, I do have all those things in my refrigerator at home…)

    And the ice cream is hardening in the freezer under the bar. Please leave it until we’ve all had our healthier food. (BTW, I will not eat broccoli and my name is NOT George HW Bush…)

    Who brought the barbecue? It’s smells YUMMY!

    Oh, look what’s going on at the tavern.

    Can’t leave those fighters alone for a MINUTE!

  84. Gypsy — Clearly you’re a connoisseur!

  85. prtfvr said

    Don’t forget the crab casserole! It had to sit over night to obtain maximum yumminess. Enjoy!

    Here ya go! *hands out party hats and blow pops* Hats on and suck away, ladies!!

    Hey Z! When ya gettin’ back to the boat? It’s lonely out here!

  86. Claire said

    Omg!! Did I just break something already stumbling into this great party!!! Sorry still a little head achey…don’t know if I spelled that right…clearly I need more Margaritas…bring them on!!!!! Before I thank all you beautiful amazing women..eeeheem(clearing drunken throat)

    Happy Birthday to Kyle
    Happy Birthday to Kyle
    Dizey said the God Smiled the day we were born
    and I say Merci Beaucoupe!
    But everytime you smile
    the sun breaks through the clouds!!!
    The beauty and grace of your soul
    Is like a beacon shining in the dark..
    Have a great day..now grab a guiness and come over here..
    lets dance!

    Anna laise….Thank you..Thank you!
    all of you!! I love you!
    Now…LAY ON!!!!!!!

    Margaret…thanks for the compliment!
    Ms.G!!! Super set up! love the rapiers!
    So many men…with sharp objects..Ouch! LOL!!

    The food is delish…ooh..I’m going to roll out of here..if I keep tasting!!!

    OK Off to mingle..see yas in a bit!

  87. rifkind said


    I left the BBQ ribs slow cookin’ in the roaster to stay warm for our all-day party.

    Hey Madonna, thanks for the “We are Family”, link!
    That song does fit our BLog Family!

  88. Claire said

    Prtfvr…That is me LOL…and your chance with Kyle went out the door….cause I’m the birthday girl…and as soon as just one toe of him comes through the door…I’m hijacking him as my all day into night present! LOL!! ummm….pay no mind to the sounds you hear….

  89. prtfvr said

    In honor of Kyle’s birthday, proceed directly to the IMDB and search on Blood Ties. I have a feeling that the Monday numbers are going to blow. Commence searching!

    Claire, be careful with that drinking. I’m not sure where Z keeps the life jackets on the S.S. Horn of Plenty. Could be dangerous. Still wearing last night’s stilletos? You devil, you!! 😉

  90. prtfvr said

    Claire, if the sounds are all I get I’ll settle for that! Hope you’re not shy! 😉

  91. Danae said

    I’m not sure what all his miracles are. He was born in Slovakia in 1904. He had been very sick as a young man and he promised God if he fully recovered he would devote his life to Him and the Church. He died in 76. I seriously believe he is my guardian angel. I was born 2 years later. That is off the subject though. He became a priest and then a bishop. At the time there was a war. The Nazi’s were persecuting the Catholic faith also. He was put into a concentration camp because he wouldn’t give up his religion and do what they wanted and he was very badly treated. My mom’s grandmother sent him money and he would use it for the other prisoners. He became very sick in captivity so they released him. They didn’t want the death of a bishop on there heads. After he died he wasn’t buried. He was just put in a box and put in the basement of the church because they were afraid the Nazi’s would desecrate his grave. They didn’t want that. Years later he was removed from the basement and they were going to put him in a coffin and they discovered that his body was perfectly preserved. There was absolutely no decay. That is his first miracle. I know that there has to be a certain number of years between become Blessed and Sainthood but neither me or my mother are sure how many or exactly how many miracle there needs to be. His name is Blessed Bishop Vasil Hopko, Martyr. A martyr is someone who chooses to suffer death rather then renounce their religion.

  92. prtfvr said

    Hey, this is promising! Hens had 24 hits from Canadians recently!! Beauty, eh?!

  93. Danae said

    Woohoo! Go Canadia! Yay Claire made it. To get this bash to it’s full potential we need Kyle. Where is that fine specimen of a man pronto. Claire gets him first though.

  94. Margaret said

    Nice article on vampires in the New York Post. Mentions another name at Lifetime, maybe we should start writing to her too.

  95. Danae said

    prtfvr-Maybe you could find a way to get a guestbook on henryshens.com.

  96. Danae said

    You can do a search on Bishop Hopko also. There are several things on him.

  97. Cool Story Danae.

    Claire it’s about time you showed up. Fashionably late with class. So did you open you present yet!

  98. Margaret said

    Claire-enjoy him today because after midnight tonight, you have to go back to sharing him with the rest of us. But you enjoy him while you can now. You deserve a nice present, and what a present.

  99. prtfvr said

    Danae: That was a very polite way of telling me to turn the guest book on, right? 😉

  100. Danae said

    Oh I almost forgot. I put the chicken parm and spaghetti and meatballs on the table in the corner. Enjoy. There are also rolls and butter and broccoli and green beans.

  101. Margaret said

    Prtfvr: Please ask some of those lovely Canadians what kind of ratings Blood Ties got up there. Inquiring minds want to know.

  102. Danae said

    Oh you have one. Yep. Do it. It would be interesting to see how many people and who and where visit.

  103. Margaret said

    We might need to bring the lighted table to the party. Isn’t that the one Vicki said Henry poses on, scantily clad?

  104. Danae said

    Oh yes that is the one. He will be even less then scantily clad though. He won’t be clad.

  105. What what what? What about Henry on a light table?

  106. lwildstar said

    Wish i cold stick around, but Paul just invited me to lunch – and while I love all of you and would love to spend the hour partying – well somethings are just a little more mportant, especially with him leaving! Oh no! maybe he’sleaving sooner!

    talk to you all tonight.

    Drink something fruity for me!

  107. msgypsy said

    Lwildstar, I’m thinking “he’s leaving later than expected” thoughts for you.

    We have numerous fruity wines. Choose strawberry, marionberry, raspberry, peach … or make something stiffer (heh heh) with the fruit juice.

    Where’s the damn band? Didn’t we order a band?

    Happpy happy birthday, Claire! I’d dirge you, it’s an SCA tradition, but it doesn’t work unless it’s done live. Writing it up would just seem wrong.

  108. Danae said

    Gypsy your phone rang a little while ago. I hope you don’t mind I answered it. It was the band they will be here in about 5 minutes.

  109. elizabeth said

    Where to begin…where to begin. I just arrived and you guys are already having a WAY good time! Gypsy I’ll take a beer – surprise me on what kind. the snacks look awesome.

    I’m just gonna hand out the cameras and the lampshades are sitting on the table if any of you feel the need to wear one 🙂

    Happy, Happy birthday Claire and Kyle! Man, these Hens sure know how to throw a birthday party!

  110. Danae said

  113. Danae said

    Go for it.

  114. elizabeth said

    Brad Paisley? Here…where??? Oh, you mean the song – duh! Sheesh, one beer and I get confused….. Oh, wait…I’m always confused…

  115. I’m Grace Kelly

  116. Danae said

    LOL! Maybe the band can play Alcohol.

  117. Danae said

    No I’m Grace Kelly

  118. elizabeth said

    Woo Hoo – I am Grace Kelley

    You are a lover. Romance, flowers, and wine are all you need to enjoy yourself. You are serious about all commitments and are a family person. You call your Mom every Sunday, and never forget a Birthday. Don’t let your passion for romance get confused with the real thing.

    Does it still count if I have a lamp shade on my head??? 😉

  119. elizabeth said

    Will the real Grace Kelly please stand up?? Oh, wait…I am standing. I need another beer – or maybe some food

  120. Danae said

    The band agreed to play Alcohol

  121. Laurel said

    Now go out there and enjoy your birthday week!

  122. elizabeth said

    Do you think the band will leave if I sing along??? I really can’t carry a tune you know.

  123. How about another musical interlude?

    Josh Groban & Sarah Mclachlan “Angel” Enjoy!

  124. Danae said

    Anything with Josh Groban I love. He is one of my fave.

  125. Madonna said

    Hi guys.

    Sorry I disappeared there. I had to go get some ice for the drinks and I got lost.

    Yeah, I see Claire finally made it. HAPPPPPYYYYY BIRRRRTHHHHDDAAAY!!

    Dani, Cree, Your strawberry daquiri’s are ready.

    Dizey, Here’s your piña coloda.

    I’ll have one for ya.

    That’s me!!! Well, partially anyway……

    (10-17 points) You are MADONNA:

    No I haven’t had time to take the test yet… but hey!

    Until the band gets here. I brought a CD

    And now for a slow song.

  126. Laurel said

    Oh, I brought my espresso machine and plugged it in. We can fire it up and make some kicken’ coffee drinks to go with the cake and home-made ice-cream after lunch.
    I’ll hve latte’s and cappuccinos ready in just a few minutes. Local coffee roaster is providing Black Tiger coffee – extra zip in this stuff. Good coffee.

    I’l be back after my hair cut! Ta’

  127. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Danae, I just read the story to my mom on Bishop Hopko, very cool 😎

    Claire, merci beaucoup. Vos mots apportent les larmes joyeuses à mes yeux. Mon coeur est plein de l’amour et de la joie ce jour glorieux.

    Anna-Banana…..Oooops sorry one Guinness too many I guess , OMG I am Grace Kelly is that good?

  128. Danae said

    Josh Groban puts me in such a tranquil mood. Ahhhhhhhh!

    Madonna-Your a girl after my own heart with Bon Jovi lady.

  129. Danae said

    I would say Grace Kelly is good. She was awesome. An actress and she married the prince of Monaco so she was a princess. A very refined lady. Quite graceful actually.

  130. Danae said

    Wouldn’t that be totally funny if Madonna was really Madonna. HAHA

  131. Madonna said

    Hey Danae,
    How do you know I’m not?

  132. Danae said

    I mean after you take the test. Not for real. Hey if you are cool. Did you take it yet?

  133. Sorry guys I’m back. I had to go visit Jon Bon Jovi for a while.”sigh”

  134. DIZEY1 :-) said

    That would be but the description doesn’t remind me of Madonna (our Madonna) , who knows maybe she is a wild child. BTW I loved “To catch a thief” loved Cary Grant too. Those were movie stars huh?? Elizabeth Taylor in “Cat on a hot tin roof” I have on DVD by far one of my ALL time fav’ movies. My God she was magnificently beautiful, ooohhh and Paul Newman, yep they were movie stars! 😀

  135. Madonna said

    Not yet Dani. I’ll have to take it at lunch.

  136. Danae said

    It is rare to find a star like that these days. Classic ladies and gentlemen. And all of them gorgeous. Well maybe not Humphrey Bogart.

  137. elizabeth said

    Bogart may not have been handsome, but he sure had presence. There was something kinda sexy about him. But, hey, lets not forget Sean Connery…oohlala

  138. prtfvr said

    The Canadian ratings for Blood Ties have not been posted yet. As soon as they are, I’ll let you know.

  139. Danae said

    Oh Sean Connery and that accent. Yikes!

  140. prtfvr said

    Sean Connery was sexy but the wife beater thing was a real turn off for me.

  141. Danae said

    Wife beater thing?

  142. Liam Neeson!!!

  143. Danae said

    Another awesome accent. Accent really turn me on. It’s getting hot over here.

  144. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Sean Connery OMG very sexy and the baldness works for him baby! Very hot I loved him in “The Rock”, yeah he’s got some serious presence! One guy I like and I think Claire does also is Adrien Brody , there’s just something charismatic about him.

  145. Danae said

    How about Ewan McGregor’s lovely accent. Or Jude Law. Ok so they aren’t old time actors but they sound great.

  146. Madonna said

    You get down off that chandelier!!!

    YES!!! I got it on tape!

  147. Danae said

    What am I aping around now. Sorry! I didn’t mean to. Gypsy is so going to kick me out.

  148. lwildstar said

    he’s late!
    I’m starving!
    I’m giving him 3 more minutes and thats it!

    lwildstar d’ Nightwalker

  149. Danae said

    Maybe he has something “important” to tell you and he is getting cold feet.

  150. DIZEY1 :-) said

    What ?? my Sean beats women? Aww man that sucks wind! Liam Neeson cool dude. I like Colin Farrell, Bono I guess I like Irish man , never thought about it but yeah something about a guy with an Irish brogue, yummm

  151. Danae said

    prtfvr-you are killing us. What about Sean Connery and being a wife beater or is it the t shirt tank thingie?

  152. Me too. That’s why Kieron is Irish.

  153. Danae said

    You know I think prtfvr is getting a peverse pleasure over making us wait.

  154. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Jude Law , ooohhhh I love Russell Crowe, New Zealander he broke my heart in “Beautiful Mind” and he was great in “Cinderella Man” what an actor. he’s kind of a throw back to me, he’s so versatile in the roles he takes on and I think Kyle can be that kind of actor too. I think, no I KNOW he’s gonna be that big one day and not that far off 😉

  155. elizabeth said

    Hey, which one of you is sucking the helium out of the balloons! Ya gotta stop talking, coz I can’t quit laughing 🙂 🙂 🙂

  156. Danae said

    I thought Russell Crowe was Australian.

  157. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Yo Prtfvr, where are you?? and what gives on Sean?? Bummer if he does or did 😦

  158. Claire said

    WE are family….I got all my sistas with me….!
    I’m Grace Kelly!!!
    love the music ladies…Bon Jovi…Josh groban..oh wait…my cell is ringing…its the men that are bringing over the lighted table! yeeha!

  159. elizabeth said

    Have you all noticed how many of us are Grace Kelly? No wonder we all get along so well!!!!

  160. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Born in New Zealand and resides in Australia, love their accent too. The author of the book “The Secret” does the CD’s and she’s Australian and love her accent.

  161. Claire said

    Irish accents,Aussie,Scottish,English,French…HOOOOTTTT!!!

  162. elizabeth said

    Italian! We have to add Italian accents. *drool*

  163. Danae said

    All accents are hot. prtfvr where did you go? I am going to start yelling.

  164. Danae said

    Unless it is my accent.

  165. DIZEY1 :-) said

    OMG that is too funny , E you are so right I guess that’s why we are so copacetic. I can still spell strangely enough. Copulation see!

  166. Danae said

    So far I think we are all Graces.

  167. msgypsy said

    It takes more than swinging on chandeliers to get you thrown out of one of my parties!

    This guy would get to stay!

    Who’s over there feeding cheese to Faraday? It’s bad for him. Makes him tubby. It’s bad for me. Makes him … oh, I think you get the idea.

    So did anyone check out my Edward Gorey art collection? (Again, I really do have one…)

    For those who need a little quiet time, there’s the library over there. Lots of interesting books. Books on the occult, books on medieval history, books on natural healing, books on archaeology, inexplicably several accounting books, a collection of science fiction books, the complete Darkover series (including the ones after MZB passed), a lot of books on politics (sorry!) and several of today’s papers from various places around the world. (Usually those are cyber-papers but for the party I got the paper editions. Ask me which ones you might want and I’ll see if I have it.)

    I’m just LOVING playing hostess!

  168. Madonna said

    So when does the Blood Ties marathon and drinking game start?

  169. Danae said

    Hugh Jackman and his accent. Getting hotter baby.

  170. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Dani, Dawlin’ I don’t think you gotta’ accent. See down hea we tawk like , maybe like we’a from Brooklyn. ya’ know ? Not so much dat’ Paula Deen twang thing goin’ on.

  171. Danae said

    I think that is later when things start to slow down and we need something to pick us up off the floor.

  172. Danae said

    That’s right. I don’t have one. That’s why it isn’t sexy. Sometimes my southern accent slips though. It comes from listening to my brother talk and listening to country music and spending so much time in Florida. My grandfather used to call me a Florida Cracker. I love listening to Paula Dean talk.

  173. elizabeth said

    Gypsy – you rock, lady. This is the best party EVER.

  174. Danae said

    When little kids have an accent it is sooooo adorable.

  175. Danae said

    Gypsy I want a charm to put on my garden to help it along. Do you have anything for that?

  176. elizabeth said

    Quick, someone give me a breath mint! I have to go back to work for awhile… 😦 Do you think anyone will notice I’ve been drinking a teeny tiny bit?

  177. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Ok ya’ll gotta make a bank run, and grab soem grub and I’ll be back in a bit 😉

    Don’t do any heavy duty partying till I get back ok??

  178. Danae said

    Hurry back!

  179. Danae said

    Apparently there is no partying going on. I think it is time to take a breather from this totally bitchin party.

  180. prtfvr said

    Sorry. Was over at hens trying to figure out how the ftp thing.

    Sean Connery once gave an interview saying that he “didn’t see anything wrong with hitting a woman now and then to get her back in line.” How’s that? He’s Scottish, btw.

  181. Danae said

    Asshole. He is still hot for an old guy.

  182. Annalaise duChat said

    I used to like him a lot but I haven’t since then.

  183. Danae said

    Some people are just bad eggs.

  184. elizabeth said

    he wasn’t joking? You know, sort of a dry sense of humor thing?

  185. Danae said

    Ok if he was joking in my opinion that isn’t something that should be joked about. It is very tactless.

  186. prtfvr said

    I’m pretty sure he wasn’t joking. I don’t think he’s the sharpest tool in the shed. Maybe he succeeded on beauty not brains. Happens to men too. Eye candy. It’s not like you’re gonna marry the guy.

  187. Danae said


  188. Danae said

    I was just daydreaming about Kyle visiting The Bloody Ford later on and what I would say to him. Ah the possibilities.

  189. Cree said

    Wow, I leave for a little while to go get some tequila to make some margaritas for everyone, and there are almost 150 new posts when I get back! You guys have been having a little too much fun. Looks like this party is turning out to be wicked awesome……….and when I say wicked awesome, I mean totally sweet!!

  190. Madonna said

    Yea! Cree’s back!

    Are they just plain Margaritas or do we get flavors?

  191. DIZEY1 🙂 said,
    August 24, 2007 @ 10:29 am

    What ?? my Sean beats women? Aww man that sucks wind! Liam Neeson cool dude. I like Colin Farrell, Bono I guess I like Irish man , never thought about it but yeah something about a guy with an Irish brogue, yummm

    DUDE!!!! Do not even get me started on the Irish accent! I could listen to Irish guys talk all day long. But seriously…stop right now or you might have to pick me up off of the floor. *THUD* Er…nevermind…Heh.
    Even if the Irish accent is fake, I don’t care, still works for me. Probably why I had a thing for Angelus…if anyone watched “Angel”…even if he was a totally evil Bastard without a soul…give him an Irish accent and slap some leather pants on him and I’d be totally falling at his feet. *ddrrroolll…* Also why I have a thing for Keiron in Annalaise’s story. Just trying to picture him is driving me CRAZY!

    Happy you guys are having fun…even if I’m missing it…
    And I still think Sean Connery is sexy…and I missed that interview so thanks SO much for popping my info bubble there. 😦
    And do NOT even get me started on Hugh Jackman. My fav movie with him has to be Kate and Leopold. That movie is just too sweet! *sigh* First time I watched that movie I cried.

  192. Danae said

    Oh vampgrl I loved Kate and Leopold. He was so romantic in that movie even if Kate looked wierd.

  193. Danae said

    Kate was very unfeminine in that movie until the end but Hugh Jackman was awesome.

  194. Cree said

    Madonna, you can have whatever flavor you want! I am currently making a batch of frozen strawberry margaritas! This blender is starting to sound a little weak….I think we are overloading it with all of our fruity drink mixes! We’re gonna need a new one soon…..

  195. Claire said

    I’m back!!!! router problems!
    Me too Diz..if a guy opens his mouth and an Irish brogue comes out…I’m done for!!!!!!!!
    I loved kate and Leopold
    loved Tristan and Isolde..fake accents…still liked it!…can you tell I’m a sucker for romance!
    Margaret…go look through Ms.Gypsys books..see if she has one on spells to make men bang down my door! LOL!!! maybe one where you can insert a certain name!
    Did the guys bring the lighted table yet?
    cause if they did….Madonna get that camcorder away from me…go tape Anna laise..she’s got a lampshade on her head!

    Did anyone say Margarita?

  196. elizabeth said

    Okay, I am just stopping back by for a quick hello and a Margarita *pant, pant* I can’t stay (waaaaa) and I won’t be able to come back today (WAAAAAA) but all you lovelies party on and I will check in with you on Monday. I have plenty of aspirin for any of you that have hang overs 🙂 Also, don’t forget…I want pictures of the fun. Love you guys!!!

  197. Claire said

    Oh check your emails..I sent pics of me and my crazy daughters trying to take pics…LOL!

  198. elizabeth said

    Ooooh, lovely Claire. How ya doing?

  199. elizabeth said

    Okay, now I am seriously outta here. I guess I will go home tonight and have a BT marathon and think of the fun you are all having *I am so pitiful…..*

    Ms Laurel – Call me on my cell phone about Saturday, please. I will email it to you again in case you don’t have it.

    Toodles everyone. Happy birthday Claire and Kyle!!!!

  200. Madonna said

    Make mine a mango.

    Nope. I’m filming it all. Annalaise has had the lampshade on since 10am

    For all the talk of men lately…. how about this one.

  201. Madonna said

    Bye Elizabeth!

  202. Cree said

    Bye Elizabeth. Take a margarita for the road.

  203. Danae said

    See ya E

  204. Cree said

    Margarita, Claire? Are you all recovered from your ones last night and ready for more? What flavor do you want?

  205. lwildstar said

    Just a quick note – lunch with Paul was wonderful! No i Didn’t kiss him….

    He thinks my obsseion with vampires is silly (if only he knew why – Hot Henry – giggles)

    I will catch up on the party posts when i get home!

    lwildstar d’ Nightwalker

  206. Madonna said

    Hey guess what…. I’m Grace Kelly too.

  207. Hey Claire,

    Your daughters are beautiful. Looks like you guys had a great time last night.

    What do they think of your “Close Encounter of the Henry Kind”? Have they seen i the incriminating photo?

  208. Madonna said

    This one is for Claire because I know she loves it.

  209. Danae said

    Alright ladies I have to leave soon. I will try to get to Kelly’s so I can join this party from there. Remember:

    Le mani del Kyle possono ritenere il buon funzionamento dappertutto il vostro corpo. Ricordisi di che è giusto un uomo e deve prendere le rotture. Risparmi una certa energia per tutto altrimenti. Non si rompa al giocattolo del ragazzo.

    Ti Amo!

  213. Madonna said

    Bye Danae,
    Hopefully we’ll see you this evening!

  214. Bye Danae. Be careful driving.

  215. Danae said

    I will *hic* try to be careful. *hic*

  216. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Ok this is what it translated to Hmmmmmmm.

    The hands of the Kyle can think the good operation everywhere your body. Ricordisi of that a man is right and must take the breaches. Sure energy for all otherwise saves one. It is not broken off to the giocattolo of the boy. Hello! I love To You!

    Ok somebody translate the translation

  217. Margaret said

    Claire: I’ll look really hard for a spell for your birthday. In leiu of that, how about a voodoo doll, but darn we need some of his hair for that, don’t we? Kind of hard to do when the poor man/child would be scared to death of us. I doubt he’d let us get that close. Good thing we don’t take ourselves too serious. Otherwise people in white coats would be coming to this party. lol

    Is it October Yet??

  218. Danae said

    I am cracking up over here. This is what it is supposed to be:
    Kyle’s hands may feel good running all over your body. Remember that he is just a man and needs to take breaks. Save some energy for everyone else. Don’t break to boy toy.

  219. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Claire vos filles sont très belle, juste comme vous ! En outre votre Mya semble juste comme Monique tellement très beau.

    Dain girl be good and hopefully will chat with you tonight.

    Prtfvr where are you ???

  220. DIZEY1 :-) said

    LOL!! Dani, thank you I was trying to figure out what you meant, thanx for the translation.

  221. Danae said

    Ciao! can also mean goodbye.

  222. Claire said

    HMM…wonder about the lighted table? Kyle is 5’10..and he fits on that right?
    I’m 5’8…hmmmmmmmmm

  223. Claire said

    OMG…Don’t break boytoy? Roflmao! I’m soo gonna break him!

    Margaret…LOL!!…I know..but I’m sure that sparkle in Kyles eye..yeah he will be laughing right along with us…but of course during that time..I will casually run my hand up the back of his neck and snip! he won’t notice..he’ll be too busy watching Prtfvr dancing on lighted table with a lampshade on her head!

    Ok really really have to find an outfit!

  224. Well Ladies it’s time for me to say goodbye. Claire enjoy the rest of your evening. Don’t do anything I wouldn’t do. (That’ll give you a lot of leeway) Remember if Tanya or Kyle show up please thank them from me and extend my apologies that I can’t be there. Thanks ms. gypsy for having us all over and I’ll drop by tomorrow to help you clean up. I had a ball! Save me some cake & ice cream.

  225. DIZEY1 :-) said


    I’m glad they’re planning ahead cuz’ I’m ready to make reservations now! Oh and your pic is on my desktop @ work and I already told one of my girls here who you were , she thought you were someone famous, beyond our circle and was admiring you beautiful curly red hair 😉 Your Famous!

  226. Madonna said

    BYE ANNALAISE! Thanks for partying with us!

  227. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Anna-Banana we’ll miss you have a good time though and tell My new friend Melanie good luck playing tonight, she rocks!! With Styx of course. 😉 😎

  228. DIZEY1 :-) said

    OOhh Gypsy,

    Do you share recipes?? I hope so cuz’ your descriptions of the ice creams etc, last night sounded ***Better than SEX** well maybe not that good but close. I’d love to try some of those and the chocolate sorbet thingy sounds YUMMMM. Hey how do I get some of that Moonstruck Choc’s my mom loves chocolate, Godiva , hell she loves Reese’s P’nut butter cups. She’s a chocolate freak 😉 But I love her. 😀

  229. rifkind said

    Well it looks like Kyle is taken for the evening.. so I hope Orlando will stop by!

  230. Madonna said

    Rifkind, The BBQ is excellent.

  231. DIZEY1 :-) said

    Hmmmm I just had the best thing in my mouth! That sounds pretty nasty, oh well I just ate a cherry tootsie pop, wow brought back childhood memories. I haven’t eaten one of those in years.

    Prtfvr, did the test for your man child come out ok? it sounded invasive and maybe painful. Where are you?? I’m all alone here with ALL the Hooch and food, ok so not sooooo bad.

  232. Tanya said

    Happy Birthday Claire!

    I was kind of hoping I could give you some good news today but nothing yet… still, I’m typing with my fingers crossed because the producers keep telling me we’ll know for sure ‘any day now’.

  233. Madonna said

  234. Madonna said

  245. lwildstar said

    aw man I missed Tanya! well shoot!

    Well break out the party hasts and noise makers – someone pour me a virgin strawberry daqurie please!

    heres my virtual contribution to the menu

    let me take a brief break to read all the posts!

  246. rifkind said

    Annalaise duChat,
    You did such a great job on the card for Claire!
    She and Kyle DO make a great couple!

    And Claire,
    We DON’T hate you because you are beautiful!
    You are a stunning and beautiful woman, and we are amazed by your strength.
    Happy Birthday again!

  247. Margaret said

    CRAP, CRAP, CRAP, I MISSED TANYA. Wouldn’t you know.

    I need to share something with you all thats not birthday related but by 360 degrees maybe to Kyle since he likes to skateboard.

    Years ago I suggested to my boss, the City Manager, of a small town that we build a skateboard park for kids who don’t do organized sports. Well, as you know everything in government runs slow. I told him my son would be married with kids by the time it happened. Well, not quite, but he’s pretty much grown and now lives in NC.

    Botton line is we’re having the ribbon cutting the first week of September. I approached a local skateboard shop and got them to donate a board which as you know if you have kids who skateboard is not cheap. Most of them go for about $150 and when I asked the guy to donate it he didn’t hesitate. My son had skated on his shops team in the past. The team he has now will be doing demos at the Grand Opening. I was soooo stoked at getting that accomplished only to learn I missed Tanya’s visit.

    But at least any day now is better than never hearing anything. Lets cross our fingers.

    Anyhow, I had to share with my sistas….

  248. lwildstar said

    did I kill the party!

    ok I’ll tell you about lunch…

    Paul wa late and I was rady to smack him! but when he showed up someone was with him – the appointment that had made him late – the guy rode down the elevator with us and then kept talking and I’m like “HELLO!” so finnally Paul says we have to go…

    so how do you know you are talking too much at lunch? our companion has fished his salad and sandwich and has started on your chips and you haven’t even finished half of your sandwich! yep he was done and I just kept talking…..part of the converstaion was he asked what I would do if I won the Mega Millions lottery – I said quit work and write full time!

    After lunch he asked if we could stop at the mini mart – he bought me a lottery ticket!!!!!

    other highlights – this week I saw him leaving work at lunch time and picked on him about escaping early – he said no he had spent the night at the office – so today I asked him if he was joking with me – and he said no….ok ladies hold your hats – I said “You know I should give you my phone number, I only live 30 minutes away and I have a bed you would be more than welcome to use” OMG!!!! the words were out of my mouth before my brain kicked in! he was blushing up to his ears!!!

    I asked him out to dinner and said that if he was a “good boy” I would even treat for a movie….I told him it maybe the last time I get to see him….
    response well maybe not if I get a job in the area
    resopnse, but if you are living in WV why commute back here?
    response, well I maybe able to move back into the house I was renting in November……

    SO now I am on a happy high!

    enough gushing!

  249. Great new Margaret!!! I know that the few skate parks where I live were fought for. Some kids just aren’t into sports, but they still need something safe and productive to do after school. We have a horrible gang problem here, every little thing that keeps these kids out of the gangs and away from drugs is good.

  250. msgypsy said

    I missed Tanya because I was in a loooooong meeting. Damn!

    Are we all having a good time? Anything need re-stocking? I can make a beer and booze run if need be.

  251. Danae said

    Hey guys! I’m back. I can’t believe I missed Tanya. Damn Damn Double Damn. Well I am at my sister Chris’s helping her move not at Kelly’s but I can still come online. YAY!

  252. lwildstar said

    they put a skate park in near here – it busy all the time but were are still having problems with some groups of kids skatboardin gin the shopping center becase the park “has too many rules” – do they realize it took 5 years to get that park and they don’t want to use it becasue they have to wear a helmaet! recently we had a competion hosted there!

    i am indulging in gourmet chocolate coverd pretzels! so that I get in the party mood!

  253. Margaret said

    lwildstar-You go girl. I can’t believe that so few of us were here when Tanya visited. Crap. Well, at least one out of two ain’t bad. We’d all lay down and die if we got the other half of the equation, wouldn’t we.

  254. lwildstar said

    hey – maybe he’s waiting til sundown! 😉

  255. prtfvr said

    That’s so cool that Tanya came! I was napping. Damn! Trying to get rested up for tonight’s chat fest.

    I’ll do my best to stay optimistic. If the writer’s optimistic, I can be too!

    Thanks Tanya!

  256. Madonna said

    I was lucky. I was just getting ready to clock out when I saw Tanya’s post.

  257. lwildstar said

    ok I’m going to get some food and I’ll be right back!

  258. Who needs food? I’ve got cashews!!!!

  259. Madonna said

    Hey Danae,
    Are you going to be able to join the chat fest tonight?

  260. AlisaSG said

    Hi everyone!!
    woooooo-hooooooooooo! 😀

    well, I still have to mail out my card to Kyle, and post to his birthday site, so I do hope he comes back to read more, if he’s already been there or here.

    I had to work all day, and we’re verbotten from reading or posting to any forums and blog sites at any time of day (break and lunch included). So, this is my first time back .. wow! 255 messages already! talk about busy.. 😉

    plus, I had to go shopping and managed to see *my* birthday twin. this is so cool!! So, I shared with her about the show and all of the amazing coincidences, and things that has brought us all together. Hadn’t planned on grocery shopping either, and she got stuck in road traffic, so it was fate that brought us back together tonight. I asked her if her ears were burning, because I was just thinking about her (she laughed). This is so COOL..!
    (I luv this!!!!)

    wishing a *very* enjoyable and *HAPPY BIRTHDAY* to Kyle and Claire!! 😎

  261. Madonna said

    Lady A,

    There’s lots of food here. Just look on the table. Your cashews are welome though. With Laurel’s birthday weed that’ll be great to munch on. Don’t ya think?

  262. Danae said

    I will try

  263. Madonna!!!! Bahahahahahahahaha!!!!
    Salty snacks + birthday weed = heaven!!!

  264. Madonna said

    Welcome to the party Alisa!

  265. I’m back – lets see if my new avatar works!

  266. msgypsy said

    Okay, ladies, time for me to head home. A few more moment with the rapier gang, though.


    That last one is just to let you know how punchy and silly I’m feeling tonight.

    I’ll try to stay awake to join the chat this evening. And I’ll see some of you tomorrow at 4! Oh, BEFORE I FORGET!!!!! Coldstone is on 185th (2227 NW 185th) near Safeway, NOT part of the Streets of Tanasbourne. I was confused. Doesn’t matter. It’s still Coldstone. My co-worker insists I need to go to the one at Bridgeport so I can buy shoes at DSW but, really, I do not need more shoes…

    Coldstone’s phone number is 503-645-8959 if you need directions. The ones online SUCK!!!!!

    Outta here now.

  267. Margaret said

    Of course you know we’ll need to plan another virtual party if we ever get any good news about renewal. Although after this party, it might be anticlimatic.

  268. oh poohh….it doesn’t show up well. eh, I’ll fix it later.

    Ok I’m going to stay about another half hour – I’ve got things to do before joining the chat tonight!

    I really want to be able to try and stay there for a while!

    lwildstar ‘d Nightwalker

  269. Chery said

    Claire Many happy wishes for a great birthday.
    Students are back at school this week so I am sooooo busy.

    Missed Tanya but I hope her news is encouraging!!!!!!

    I simply cannot believe that after all of the outlets around the world it is being shown….. It is a Franchise!!!!!

  270. Madonna said

    Thank you for the wonderful comment on the card. I’m glad you liked it!

  271. Madonna said

    Ms Gypsy, I’m going to go grab a quick nap in the guest bedroom. I want to be able to stay up and play tonight too.

    Keep the party going while I’m gone. Have fun!

  272. ok – it looks like things are slowing down a bit – I’m going to log off but i”ll be back at the chat later!

    lwildstar ‘d Nightwalker

  273. Danae said

    Ew I am hot and sweaty and icky. I need a shower.

  274. Cree said

    Danae said,
    Ew I am hot and sweaty and icky. I need a shower.

    So YOU’RE the one whos been hiding Henry all day…….what exactly were you two doing? We want details! 🙂

  275. Margaret said

    All this virtual food hasn’t hit the spot yet. Fixing a late dinner, watching Meerkats, back in an hour. How sad am I, the only two shows I watch any more are about some little rodents and a vampire. lol

  276. Danae said

    Wouldn’t you like to know.

    My 8 year old nephew lost his two front teeth and he looks like a vampire with only his canines showing.

  277. Anzia and I are at the hen house if anyone is still lurking!

    lwildstar ‘d Nightwalker

  278. Margaret said

    Ok, everyone where are you? You know where the party is.

  279. Anzia said

    HEY! I’m sorry i’m so late getting here. *throws stuff on the table and gives Claire a huge hug* Really really sorry. I had such a hard time finding this place. I obviously missed the memo telling where it was exactly.

    *goes back to bag* although I’m sure ya’ll started already, I’ve brought more to restock the stash *pulls out various alcohol and goodies for drinks*

    *as people rush towards alcoholic fun, she sneaks off, grabs Kyle and gives him his birthday present….


    a hug and small kiss on the cheek*

    Yeah, naughty people!

  280. prtfvr said

    Diz: Thanks for asking about my boy. The test went well. His GERD seems to be clearing up. It wasn’t painful but they took a biopsy while they were in there so that hurts him a bit. Other than that, he’s playing WoW and cursing up a storm as usual so I’m going to assume he’s fine. 😉

  281. Anzia said


  282. Laurel said

    Well, after a really long, busy day I get to the party late and all of you are draped over the furniture!
    How the heck did Danae get way up there? Girl, only Henry can do that cling to the ceiling thing! Oops. I guess I shouldn’t have told you that. You okay?
    And why is prtfvr sitting in the fish tank? Sweetie, tell me you have clothes on in there. And no, the umbrella in your drink doesn’t cover much.

    Dizey? Looks like you’re going to need help with the clean-up. I don’t think Gypsy’s going to get her deposit back. Sheesh, now I’ll have to console her with extra ice-cream tomorrow. Don’t worry, I’ll have them add an extra scoop of topping, too.

    Look at all those names in the guest book! Too cool, Tanya was here! She is so awsome. Sounds like she hasn’t given up hope! Now that is a worthy birthday gift.

    Claire – are you in here somewhere? Hehehe I’ll bet you’re in that dark corner with the birthday boy. (I see you got the bow off your present). 🙂

  283. Madonna said

    Ladies or those of you who are still standing……

    I’d like to propose a toast.

    Happy Birthday to Claire and Kyle!

    May the sun always shine on you and no clouds ever darken your days.
    May your hearts always be filled to overflowing with friends and loved ones and may you both get every thing your heart’s desire.

    Cheers to you both!!!!! (Raises glass and asks those who are still able to raise their glass to join in.)


    Ladies is that Dizey out there on the front lawn streaking?

  284. Margaret said

    As I told you before Claire thanks for having a birthday. We all had one heck of a good time at your party. We missed you but were glad you were enjoying yourself. Besides, what icing on the cake for Tanya to wish you a happy birthday. What a lucky girl.

    Good morning Dizey, I knew that was you!

    Ms. Gypsy,
    Thanks for hosting a great party. I’ll help you clean up as soon as I can stand up. Anybody got any Tylenol?

    I found this article on Blood Ties in Canada and thought it was interesting.

    If you scroll down to about the middle of this page Gina lets slip a bit of a spoiler.

  289. Claire said

  291. Margaret said

    Dizey: I was still worrying about helping Kyle out with his problem. Keep me up half the night. lol.

  292. DIZEY1 :-) said

  293. DIZEY1 :-) said

  294. msgypsy said

    The party’s over, folks, and the new week’s post is up at https://msgypsy.wordpress.com/2007/08/25/and-after-the-party-life-goes-on/

    I’m glad you all cleaned the place up so well, although I think the chandelier is a lost cause. It’s okay. It’ll be worth my deposit to have seen all the fun we were having.

  295. Claire said

    Ms.Gypsy?Am I still drunk from the awesome party or is something wrong with the new link? It saids comments closed.

  296. Margaret said

    Dizey: He no longer has that little problem. I took care of it last night. Sorry.

  297. Margaret said

    Diz: I told him it was his birthday present, you should have seen the smile on his face.

  298. Claire said

    Hey..Margaret….what did I miss…what problem…you mean the problem where I broke his….in that really dark corner…before I left? Sorry..we just got sooo carried away..what with the celebrating and all! That’s what all that rustling and umm sighing was…you all were wondering about!

    He didn’t seem to mind…he said it was all worth it and that someone named Margaret had promised to fix it later…I’m guessing you did? cause he came back to my place around 4 a.m. and..what can I say…

    Notre Kyle est une belle oeuvre d’art… Kyles corps magnifique dans la nudité est celui d’un ange ! Kyles lèvres… sont délicieuses… il est excellent dans l’art de l’amour !

  299. msgypsy said

    No, I think I’m the one with too much to drink! It’s all fixed now and should be ready for comments.


    Chat away. If it still doesn’t work I’ll have to beat up something. And FitzBat is on my desk at work so that leaves Gobo Fraggle who is in my car at the moment. (Yes, I do have a heap of stuffed animals. Why do you ask?)

  300. Margaret said

    Crap. I forgot you got to him first, you must have fixed “it”. I just tried to do repair work, but once its broke you can’t put it back together but I enjoyed trying. Between you and I and anybody else who got him the poor boy must have been really tired this morning. lol
