I think the thing I hate the most about planning a party is the wait between the time you
get all ready and the time people start showing up. I have found this is no different in Second Life.
I always get it all ready way ahead of time and end up standing there watching the clock. It takes all my will power not to start texting or calling my best friends asking where they are. Of course they take longer than I do to get ready for a party... they are all divas.
Then I pour myself a drink.. stand around longer... and wait more, going over everything I have set up.. Do I have it all out....did I forget anything...oh god.. I hope I didn't. Drink more...
Pour myself another drink.. go over the evenings plans in my head again... for the hundredth time. Start getting a bit depressed because no one has shown up yet. My friends should be here early..they know I need support! They are all trying to be fashionably late I am sure.
Pour myself another drink to calm my nerves ... feel a little dizzy. I shouldn't have drank on an empty stomach. But if I ate.. I would mess up my carefully laid out cocktails for the party. Oh..the irony!
I think of the cocktails just waiting for me .... teasing me with their perfect flavors....
Laid out looking, oh so pretty... one plate and another drink wouldn't hurt would it....
But no.. I must resist.. even those the sushi calls.. I know. I will just have another drink.. it will deaden the hunger... look at the clock again.. where are they!
Halfway through the sixth drink I will sit up and wonder... did I send the invites out...did they get them.. and panic until my guests finally arrive. Then they will tell me I look frazzled and shouldn't have worked so hard... If only they knew!
