spryte, LOL, glad to know I am not alone! But really, don't they feel more comfortable knowing you won't freak out if someone knocks something over?

I like it when my guests can find their own glass in the cupboard. They say you should treat company like family and family like company.

Apparently we are having a pre-teen party here of sorts. Daughter is on the phone right now collecting all her chums. They are meeting here before heading out to T&T. I am NOT feeding them, nor am I driving them all home. Thank God tomorrow is a school day.

How many "chums" are we talking? And you should maybe toss some bread or something at them to soak up all that sugar they will be ingesting...don't want to deal with any barf later either.

My kids have a PD day tomorrow, so they will be up nice and late scarfing crap.

good point, Alix. I believe we are having about half a dozen, but then I am always the last to know. Daughter and two of the cohorts have just finished eating tacos, so they're good to go.

They are all changing into their costumes now, apporx 3 hours in advance of actual T&T time. Ah, youth.

LOL! They will be raring to go when they finally get out there. I am just going to give my little monsters something to eat and give them the boot.

Hope y'all have a wonderful time tonight. Nobody eat too much crap...or if you do...make sure you have the Tums handy.

luvs_food that is a dilema. I do not like drop in guests. Either I do not answer the door or if I do I say "this is not a good time I am busy, perhaps next time you should phone first. Forgive me for being short, but I need to get back to what I was doing. I shall call you later when I am free." If they get mad, they created it. I do not drop in on my friends out of respect for them and their privacy, and I fell I should be treated the same.

Thanks tweedee, it does work. I did not get too many stop ins, they usually called. Now I live in a security building and there is a buzzer downstairs that rings the inhouse phone, Sometimes I answer it, sometimes I look out my window to see a recognizable car, but here I have the option of telling them on the phone I am in the tub.

Hubby and I are not quite the party type of people other than maybe on new years eve.

We do enjoy going out on the town now and then and having a few drinks but we do all of our socializing in places like bars and grills and that way our home isn't in anyway invaded by unwanted or uninvited guests.

Nowabout you luvs_food,

I hope you're not like me and suffer from a hangover after a night of getting good and drunk. I always have a lot of fun while I'm getting drunk and I am a very happy and funny person in the process of it all but the next morning when I wake it's like ooooooooooooooooh god, help me. And then I turn right around the next day and do the same thing all over again.

I think that is called a slow learner.
