Wanna Party?

I know this is way in advance, more than a year out even, but this is big and important so I need to get it out there now. Mark your calendars, save your money, put this at the top of your 2011 travel priorities, get your passports and visas ready if you need them to travel to the U.S. If you are reading this you are invited to this once in a lifetime opportunity that you won’t want to miss.


Trueself will be hosting a 50th birthday celebration for herself on Saturday, April 30, 2011. (I love referring to myself in the third person as though I’m important or something. Heh!) (Also, I would’ve held it the week before which is closer to my actual birthday but that weekend is Easter, and I figure that a lot of people wouldn’t be able to attend on a holiday weekend.)


Now I don’t have a lot of details about it just yet. I may hold it in St. Louis, MO or Chicago, IL or somewhere in a town on either the I-55 or I-57/I-70 corridors between the two cities. It depends on various factors, including but not limited to, availability and pricing of party locations and accommodations.

As time goes by I will get details hammered out and share them with you as soon as I have them nailed down. What I do know is that I am inviting both cyberspace friends and real life friends. I will host the party and provide food and non-alcoholic beverages with a cash bar available. Also, any travel and accommodations you require will be at your own expense. Don’t worry though. You won’t need to get me a present. Your presence will be more than present enough.

If you would seriously consider attending drop me a comment on this post letting me know, ‘kay? I won’t hold you to it, but it would just be nice to know whether I should expect closer to 2 people or 200 when making plans.

Now I just need a catchy name for the party:
50palooza?
Semi-centennial Celebration?

Send me your ideas. . .

Check - 4/30/11!
I won't RSVP for two under current circumstances [unless it's a kid-friendly party ;-)]
Can I cast a vote for St Louis? I haven't been there since I was a teenager...

WOW - thanks for the invite! I will have to decline though, as I know I'll be going to NYC right after Easter and I doubt my family would be thrilled with me going away two times in one month.
