You Can Leave Your Hat On

At 2 weeks old, my niece is enjoying her title of "Newest-Family-Member" to it's fullest. Her reign will be brief as her cousin is due to steal the crown on Feb 26.

I hosted a baby shower for my other SIL on the weekend.

While it may seem odd for a weathered infertile to host such a celebration in the face of her own barreness, it was incredibly easy & enjoyable. I always say, when hosting a baby shower for someone else make sure:

1: You love the person very much.
2: You provide cupcakes & alcohol on equal quantities.
3: You have a range of 80's Rock CD's to blast.
4: You have a wide variety of hats in your possesion.


You see, once the faint hearted guests nibble cakes, sip tea & take their leave, the hard core, party animal friends & family can empty vodka bottles, marvel at "Cock-Sucking-Cowgirls" in a CASK and play "Jessie's Girl" till the cows come home.

The hats are my party trick. Once copious amounts of liquor have been consumed. I gather every hat I own (cycle helmets, shower caps, sombrero's) and unleash them on my guests. The party will intensify once all drunks are hatted. It is well documented that you become a great dancer and a comedian with a hat on. ........At least in my company.

Wow, that actually sounds like a shower even a hard core infertile could enjoy!

Good for you Mony, rock on, helmets and all!

You know what Mary Poppins says, "copious amounts of liquor makes the medicine go down". ;-)

Your party recipe sounds good, I might have to try it.

Being as I've just enjoyed my Valentine's Day by downing four glasses of champaigne, hats sound like the perfect end to my drunken fumble of a night. :) Thanks for the Valentine's comment. Hugs.

And, I better be invited to your next hat party...Or else...

Mony its wonderful you can pull together a nice little shin-dig for your SIL. The last Baby Shower I went to was 5 years ago and it was pretty horrible - and i have been turned off by them since.

I got really drunk on Cock Sucking Cowboy cocktails once at a hen's night (not mine), they are so lethal.

what a great idea!! I even have swim caps in many, many colors (to protect the bottled hair color from chlorine). I want to go to a Mony party.

Sounds like all you need to include is cupcakes with alcohol.

You are a most excellent SIL.
