The Social and Cultural Event of the Century

We interrupt this incredibly boring afternoon to bring you news of the most startling, most enthralling, most heart thumping....um....you know, variety.

Seriously, sit down for this one. Mostly because anyone who reads other people's blogs while standing has clearly not heard the latest statistics on the undisputed correlation between standing and exercise. And I'm sorry, but blogworld is NOT for you exercising religious fanatics. You pull up a soft, rolley chair and nuke a couple of Lynn Wilson burritos like the rest of us. Don't make us come over there and, er, uh, be FAT on you.

Cuz we totally will.

Anyway, speaking of sitting and eating, my lovely and talented sister Amber is hosting a Meet n' Greet next week, and you're all invited!! That's right!! Even you exercising religious fanatics!! You can help drag the rest of us to our cars when we collapse from Alfredo Sauce Infarction.

(And see why I advised you to sit down for that big, big news? Next time you'll listen, huh?)

Friday, July 10, evening-ish. Dinner type activity. General Salt Lake City vicinity. I know, I know, stop with the minute details already, Miss DeNae the Control Freak.

I'm coming to town for a very special celebration, and those of you at the MnG will get to be a part of it. Honestly, this is better than a "Blossom" reunion!

And this just in: The Also Very Lovely and Talented but Far More Elusive and Mysterious "Motherboard" has announced her intentions of attending. That's right, people. You will meet this wonderful woman who Amber and I love not only with our whole hearts, but with big chunks of our kidneys, livers, and spleens.

Amber would like to know how many of you are coming, so please either comment here or over at her place.

I hope you can all make it! This should be a GAS!

(So bring your Beano...)

Oh my gosh...bring the beano. That's hilarious!

Well, you know I'm in! Still thinking about where. Any thoughts???

Kristina P. said...

Boooooooooooo.

Mercy! There are times I wish I lived in the Mormon Corridor! I would love to MnG with all you beano eatin' folks.

The Garden of Egan said...

Wow, I posted right AFTER Kristina...I can hardly believe my luck!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Is Amber really your sister? Did you guys really give part of your kidneys and spleens to MB? The emotional parts?

I so want to come, but I will be all the way in Springville and I think my hub would have a fit if I even ask.

Let me stew on it.

charrette said...

THE ONE WEEK I plan a vacation...out of state even...you come to town? So not fair! I would love, love, LOVE to meet you and your sister in person!

Melissa said...

I'm so excited that every time I think about it, I pee a little.

Mallory said...

Poo! I think this is the one time when I actually wished I lived in Utah. I will throw my own bloggy meet and greet here in Cincinnati someday....maybe tomorrow...because my schedule is wide open and I know nobody else will come (because every other blogger in the universe is from Utah).

AS Amber said...

Hey Crash! I'm in Pleasant Grove...we can ride together if that'll make hubby feel better. I'm sure that'll help.

Hel said...

Well, at least I will be in the right country for it. But I'm afraid that's as close as I am going to get. BLAH.

How many people do you think I could get to come and visit me in Mesa? Yeah, that's what I thought.

Totally random word verification "Gallspel" - The gospel according to your gall bladder.

KC Mom said...

Cool...too bad I can't come!

Brooke said...

I'll only come IF you can convince Jessica to come. I sure do miss her, and I'd love to meet more of her extended family. (I still crack up when I remember playing Settlers with her mom & grandma in Turkey . . .) :-)

Lisa Loo said...

Sounds like way too much fun--I am with everyone else---usually I'm good with living 10 hours from the too true Utah place--July 10th I will definitely not---take lots of pictures and have someone post them!

Steph @ Diapers and Divinity said...

Please eat a vicarious dessert for me. (or two or three)

Motherboard said...

Oh puh-leeze! You know you gave me your stomachs too. That's why mine's so big!

(I think I may try to get Liese to come too... what think ye of that??)

Lara said...

NOT FAIR! I am coming to Vegas that very day, and I was just going to email you about that. Going to see Duran Duran and was hoping to also see DeNae DeNae. No such luck...we will probably pass each other on the freeway. Sigh.

It is very exciting though. You know, for all the people that actually get to go.

val of the south said...

Are lurkers welcome?

DeNae said...

MB, I think it would be GREAT to have Liese there! And Miss Val of the South, of course you're welcome!

Unless you're REALLY Vic of cell block D, currently doing time for attending blog meet n' greets and then killing and eating everyone at the party. In which case, I'm sorry, no. You can't come.

DeNae said...

And Charrette and Lara and Kristina, what the H?? Lara, are we doomed to forever be star-crossed, only to have you move to parts unknown?? And Kristina, whatEVER, Miss "Hey, I totally want to hook up with you and share my 2-in-1 Snuggie and take pictures and stuff." Admit it: you were just leading me on.

And Charrette, I was sincerely hoping you would be there. I really was. WAAAAH!

Michelle said...

Okay, I just read your comment on MMB and thought I would come by and check you out! If you have trouble uploading pictures, try using windows live writer. You can get it free here: http://tinyurl.com/c449y3

Can't wait!

brudcrew said...

Hmmm, any more info on the where? It would be fun to see you!

Sarah said...

I am SOOOOOO there! And SOOOOO excited!

myimaginaryblog said...

I can't make it. :( And I have to miss both Erin's and Crash's bloggy get-togethers the next day for my nieces' double baptism, too. So much for living nearby. Have fun anyway!

SO said...

As I've told Amber it's my 16th anniversary on this day and I don't think my husband would take kindly to me wanting to spend it with you all instead of with him. She thinks this is a lame excuse.

Kazzy said...

I just clicked on your blog here from Charrette's (long-time bud). You made me laugh, which means I will be back for sure! Thanks.
