So I just bought a new home, and I'm rather proud of it. So I thought what better way to celebrate my purchase, than by throwing an old fashioned house party. I'm going to invite 13 of my closest friends over for the weekend, and we are going to have so much fun. They will arrive on Thursday and be out of my hair by Monday afternoon. It wasn't even that hard to make up the guest list really, since I plan on throwing one of these parties, at least once a month, I don't need to worry about hurting anyone's feelings.
There will be board games in the parlor, some lovely tennis matches on the clay courts, and maybe even a fox hunt or two. Of course we aren't going to hurt the fox, what kind of person do you think I am. We will dine on succulent feasts and regale each other with tales of adventure and love, all while sitting by one of many roaring fireplaces. Who knows, we may even make history somehow.
So I'm assuming you are wanting to see the first guest list right now. I know the society papers are dying to know, so you must be all giddy with excitement. I tried to make the list as well rounded and lively as I could. I just hope the guests all get along, though it may be nice to see a fight break out. Maybe even get to witness a good brawl or two. Pretty sure that won't happen, but a boy could always dream.
I know that most of you will recognize many of my friends who will be spending the weekend in my home, I just hope the jealousy doesn't eat you up inside. Depending on how this party goes, I may even invite a few of you along to the next ones. But until then, look at this list, and drool.
