Party time

I woke up with a mother of all colds.

No biggie right? Except tonight is the one time a year I get to dress up and go out to party all night. Office Christmas party. Even better, it is my husband’s work one! So I get to have all the fun without worrying about what my colleagues think. As you can see, I am bummed for a reason.

There is even worse news. Yes, worse then poor Kate Middleton hospital prank. Which was terrible to say the least. Unlike Duchess of Cambridge I have nothing to wear for tonight’s party. Well I have a closet full of party clothes dating back to my single years, but they are either out of style or do not fit me anymore. OK, none of them fit me anymore…

Adding to all this drama, party has moved to a new location this year. A posh casino an hour away from home. I have never been to a casino, but I am imagining James Bond sipping martinis and pretty girls kissing his dice for luck. Rich people having their Bentleys parked and arriving in their yachts. Don’t laugh, this casino is located by the sea. I googled it!
So I gather yoga pants are just not going to cut it. Even if I dress them up with badazzled top and sexy heels? Never mind…

After I took some cough medicine I had a brilliant idea. How about instead of going to a casino we all meet online? I propose PartyBingo.com because they have a pretty website and give us money when we join. We can all stay in our pajamas, skip the small talk and win some money. There is even a VIP lounge and I bet we can pretend we all sailed in on our yachts if we want to.

I know what you are thinking. But, a decade ago everyone would have thought facebook was silly. And now we have more friends online then we do in real life. So why not organize parties at online gaming sites? See, I am a pioneer. Now if only the old fuddy duddies at my husband’s office would agree…
