evelyns_pet_zebra's avatar

Too far away, and CA has a petition to keep me out of the state, as I would ‘normal’ the place up too much. Thanks for asking, though.

ru2bz46's avatar

I just need to shower, and I’ll be over in 15 or so.

eponymoushipster's avatar

Do we have to pay for each cubic foot of water we carry out each time we get out of the pool, or displace with a cannonball?

evelyns_pet_zebra's avatar

@eponymoushipster so you are saying you can tell how deep the pool is by floating on your belly, even with your eyes closed?

eponymoushipster's avatar

@evelyns_pet_zebra yep, that’s why my wang is nicknamed “mark twain”.

also, it writes excellent post-civil war literature

Yarnlady, it is very nice of you to offer. I recently met someone from online, and I think it’s very important for everyone to remember that who we are on line, who you think your friends are, may be very, very different than the truth. That being said, I think I’ll let the remainder of you stay as lovely as my mental image of you and not ruin it by meeting anyone else. Debbie Downer rant over.

cak's avatar

It’s a very kind offer; however, the long term recovery on my foot and the fact that I’m on the East Coast, it kinda keeps me from going to the party. Have a wonderful time, when you figure out the date!

@Likeradar I’m so sorry that it wasn’t what you hoped it would be. :(

Grisaille's avatar

Again, is clothing optional?

Grisaille's avatar

@eponymoushipster Mines is named Captain Jack Sparrow.

You lose.

YARNLADY's avatar

@Likeradar I am an experienced event planner and have held many successful events for strangers, who only know each other by membership in a group, like Fluther. Thank you for the caution, and I assure you that this offer is real, and there is no danger involved.

@Grisaille Yes, but in my experience, all attendees choose to wear clothing. You are welcome to be the exception.

Grisaille's avatar

Cali is rather far. (I should know, I just took a trip to L.A. just a month ago)

I thank you for the offer, but I’m in a financial pickle. Next time, ma’am.

eponymoushipster's avatar

@Grisaille wow, so yours goes down with the ship, eh?

@YARNLADY lol.

Tink's avatar

This was real? I thought it was like other questions, sorry YARNLADY

YARNLADY's avatar

@vegelizabeth In the greater Sacramento, California area, for details, contact me by e-mail. Every Fluther is invited, the only requirement is that you must all agree on the date.

YARNLADY's avatar

@Tink1113 Yes, this is a real invitation. If you want to come, contact me by e-mail.

vegelizabeth's avatar

hahah thanks !

Grisaille's avatar

@eponymoushipster It goes into places you don’t wanna know about.

tinyfaery's avatar

What part of No Cal? I try to stay away from certain parts up there, you know, Central Valley way.

Likeradar's avatar

@YARNLADY I don’t doubt the offer is real, and really generous too. The person was a jelly… my warning about being very cautious of people online stands. Plenty of good folks too, I’m sure. :)

Tink's avatar

@YARNLADY – Im a bit too far from Sacramento

vegelizabeth's avatar

myself as well, Vermont !

YARNLADY's avatar

@Likeradar I can assure you there would be no danger in a meet up.

peyton_farquhar's avatar

@YARNLADY oh sniz, I live in the greater Sacramento area. Where are you located? You might be in my backyard.

YARNLADY's avatar

@peyton_farquhar For more information, send me an e-mail.

kenmc's avatar

@Likeradar The people that I’ve actually met because of the internet have been great so far. (Yay wis.dm!) I’ve even met my love on line. Accidentally, even. Not on a dating website.

eponymoushipster's avatar

@boots so we won’t see you in some irritating quasi-Christian dating ads?

shrubbery's avatar

I honestly would if I could. Perhaps make it annual and I’ll come next year? :)

Saturated_Brain's avatar

Who’s paying for the air tickets?

eponymoushipster's avatar

will there be bacon?

ru2bz46's avatar

@eponymoushipster I’ll bring the bacon.

YARNLADY's avatar

@Saturated_Brain Entirely at your own expense. Who pays the way to your birthday parties? Maybe they would be willing to help.

@eponymoushipster Everything I do includes bacon. Please feel free to bring as much as you want. I love bacon.

Grisaille's avatar

@eponymoushipster I want one of those Asian models to lay on the table, covered in sushi.

preferably wrapped in bacon

YARNLADY's avatar

@Grisaille Any member of Fluther is invited, bring your Fluther Asian model along.

ru2bz46's avatar

@Grisaille Mmmm…bacon sushi… :P

Saturated_Brain's avatar

@YARNLADY Aww man…. Call me back in a few years when I finally have a stable job then. Can’t justify asking for a few thousand dollars to fly to a pool party.

eponymoushipster's avatar

if you make the bacon covered model Brazilian or something, i’m in. Bacon needs more padding.

YARNLADY's avatar

@eponymoushipster No strings attached, it’s strictly “do it yourself”. for details, send me an e-mail.

eponymoushipster's avatar

@YARNLADY yeah, i’m definitely not going, but the idea of a brazilian woman, covered in bacon, is definitely something i need to look into.

YARNLADY's avatar

@eponymoushipster great ideas, maybe someone else will take it up.

Grisaille's avatar

@eponymoushipster Ethnicity is not a issue.

You can wrap a construction worker’s foot in bacon and it’d still taste delicious.

whatthefluther's avatar

Well, I don’t travel very well anymore, but I do have a stockpile of Rx’s, etc, that could keep me pretty medicated through the party and both legs of the trip from L.A.and back. And @sccrowell loves to drive and will have a new car soon (although the van has a lift, an inflatable bed and a couple thousand watts of audio equipment and thus endless more possibilities). And since @evelyns_pet_zebra is banned from the state, Sherry and I would both be honored to represent the Orgasmic Church of Evelyn at the party (don’t worry, we don’t push our religion, but will gladly share its benefits and virtues, of which there are many, with anyone interested). But then, we’d need to find a sitter for our five kids (four four-leggers and a damn parrot). Wow, I’m exhausted just thinking about it. I’ll have to check with @sccrowell and get back to you. See ya…..wtf

Grisaille's avatar

WHEN THIS VAN’S-A-ROCKIN’...

YARNLADY's avatar

@whatthefluther Wow! who woulda thunk it? My grandson works for a veterinarian who has kennels for rent, and it’s right down the street from the motel we would put up our Fluther friends. Plus, I have two separately fenced side yards which are just perfect for pet kennels. Did I mention that family is also invited?

Sariperana's avatar

Its a bit cold for a pool party at this time of year – but i could meet you at the pub for a drink or two…

SeventhSense's avatar

@vegelizabeth
We can have a party. I’m down and to the right in NY

YARNLADY's avatar

@Sariperana The date hasn’t been decided, some days are over 100 degrees, and the lowest temps in the winter are around 35. My pool heater works all year long. We had the most delightful pool party on News Years eve on what was billed as the coldest New Years Eve ever, right here. The enclosed, heated patio is about five feet from the pool, with a changing room, and everyone fully enjoyed it.

whatthefluther's avatar

@YARNLADY…..Well, you may have just sealed the deal (well, I guess we may just see how well you can put up with a parrot that curses like a drunken sailor). Sherry just got home from work a bit ago and is still unwinding. I know….I’ll ask her once we go to bed….she can’t say no to anything when I’m laying naked next to her. Of course, knowing how Sherry feels about him…..if the monkey man was in (the party that is, not my bed, but come to think of it, perhaps….....well, that’s a separate discussion) she’d probably jump at him….I mean jump at it, as in the party. I’ll let you know in the morning. Until then…..wtf…..... Hey move over monkey man….you’re hogging the blankets, again….hey watch it with that banana of yours….wtf?!

YARNLADY's avatar

Ha, ha. We even have a bird cage. (and a rabbit cage if anyone cares) I have made arrangement for some very far out visitors. We once put up 5 cats for a week while a friend of ours looked for an apartment. I have a barn, and a two room tent, and many other amenities.

Allie's avatar

I don’t think I should be swimming in my condition (broken bone), but I’ll come over and hang out. I can bring some chips and dip as long as you all wait an hour after you eat before you swim. No yakking in Yarnlady’s pool. Mmkay?

eponymoushipster's avatar

@Allie i’m lurving you simply for the avatar.

Allie's avatar

@eponymoushipster Yeah, fucking crutches.

@YARNLADY… FYI, it might take me a while to get there. I move slow these days.

YARNLADY's avatar

@Allie the date hasn’t been set yet, there is a possibility you will be all healed by then. I’m taking suggestions at my e-mail address. When I have a list of possible dates (in a week or two probably), I will send it out to all who replied, for a vote.

Sariperana's avatar

@YARNLADY It was -6 degrees here last night – celcuis. All our pools are probably frozen over as well. Maybe we could all go ice skating instead?

YARNLADY's avatar

@Sariperana Where is your ‘here’? We had a high of 90 today, and at nearly 10 pm, it’s still 75 F

applesaucemanny's avatar

man you guys have all the luck where I live the temperature is usually higher than 100 degrees F right now it’s 10 PM and it’s around 95 outside

Tink's avatar

It’s 75* where I am and 10pm

Sariperana's avatar

@YARNLADY downunder ma’am!

Australia – We’ve just hit the full force of winter, which is fairly mild by all means, but still – a bit to cold to go swimming :) Though thoughts of warm days a summer pool parties still lifts the spirit!

hungryhungryhortence's avatar

The next time I’m in Sacramento, was just there a few weeks back. I’ll bring a posse and some potluck :D

Bluefreedom's avatar

I could attend if the party occurred before the end of the year. After that, all bets are off because I’m supposed to deploy somewhere in the Middle East or Southeat Asia at the beginning of next year.

If you get a firm date for this to happen, @YARNLADY, please send me a PM with the information. Thanks.

Saturated_Brain's avatar

@Bluefreedom South East Asia?! If you do, do update me on it.

Bluefreedom's avatar

@Saturated_Brain. Will do. So far, we’ve heard that Kyrgyzstan or Afghanistan might be possibilities.
