Party time! 150th Post eShindig

Welcome to the 150th post on Awesomely Luvvie!!!

My butler Benson has the day off but take off your coat and stay awhile. I’d prefer you take off your shoes since I just bought new carpet. Hope your socks don’t have holes in them or anything. Help yourself to the rice buffet (white rice, fried rice, jollof rice, basmati rice…). The dranks will be coming soon. In the meantime though, we got some Bailey’s. Some folks are supposed to bring the Grey Goose (with only minimal looseness) and the Patron (with the goneness).

People start chanting. “Speech, Speech, Speech”!

Me: *looking faux-shocked* Who me? Aww I didn’t expect this. Are y’all sure?

People: I mean, we guess.

Me: This is just so surprising. *pulls out 4-page letter*

*clears throat*

You like me! You really, really like me! Wow, I can’t believe its been 150 posts already. Who’da thunk folks would actually enjoy what I write so much. What started as my random penchance for rants and all things side-eye – inducing has turned into an eFamily of sorts. It’s gotten me an ePosse, many great friends, and opportunities to write for various sites.

I’d like to thank my Mom, for carrying me for those 10.5 months (I was two weeks late, on some serious CP time ish. This should probably explain my inability to be on time for anything. I was even late going down the birth canal. *shakes head*). Anyway, I’d also like to thank God, for creating me in His image (although He may not want to take credit for my lack of sense. See what had happened was, the day He was handing out some sense, I was late since I went back for seconds in the Rice line. By the time I got there, He was fresh out. Darn!)

Finally, I’d like to thank you, my reader(s), for making me feel listened to. Did you ever know that you’re my hero(es)? (No Bette). For real, y’all make blogging so much fun because then I know I’m not writing to an echoing room. If a Luvvie writes, and there’s no one to side-eye her, is she still Awesome? Methinks not. So THANK YOU for reading my stream of consciousness and for your comments (which make my day and make me show all my shark teeth). With that being said, let’s pop some eBailey’s! Here’s to my AWESOME readers!!! Cheers!

*takes a swig of Bailey’s*

Let’s keep the party going. *Cues Kool & the Gang’s “Celebrate good Times”*

LiteBread: “I’m outta control, Luvvie’s outta control. This whole dang party’s outta conttrooollllllll”

For my eShindig celebration, I’d like my readers to comment and give a toast. A toast to what? Anything. Just give me a reason to take another swig sip (What? It’s Monday! Don’t judge me!). Yes, that means YOU TOO lurkers and Google Readers. Say hey!

P.S. This is a No Stanky Leg party, heel toe, or chicken noodle soup zone. We keeps it classy around these parts. If I see someone doing the Stanky Leg, I may have to put them on timeout. I mean it!

Edit: It has been brought to my attention that I forgot to order some wings. Well I placed an emergency order to Popeye’s so they’re coming. I couldn’t afford no biscuits so… yeah.

*Party continues*

Aw snappp! Y’all don kicked off the electric slide!

    I’m not gonna stay long, just gonna put up a plate of chicken, buscuits and basmati rice, you got some Trini curry sauce to go with the rice? Never mind, I’ll make some when I go home. But I’m leaving some Apple Pucker and Peach Schnapps, y’all can make a Jolly Rancher or something.

    I done DIED an’ went to WhiteBoy Heaven! You INVITED ME! And even called me out, lol!

    Ok, now since I rock the West Coast, I gotta “fly” in (uh, that’s an airplane. Me and “Fly” are NOT words that go together). Out here, best chicken comes from Louisiana Fried Chicken (specifically the one on W Manchester & S Normandie, in South Central LA. And why these dang places always owned by Koreans anyway? I digress). I’m grabbin’ 3 big buckets, hittin’ LAX and COMIN’ OUT!!! (Uh, to the party that is …).
    Luvvie, I’m gonna get wild! I’m gonna ‘Drop, Pop-it and Lock’. Hope ya got yer Apple Bottoms on (“anymore room in them jeans …?”), cause we gonna … (what DO white people say here? I really don’t know).
    And since I lack as much class as common sense, I’m bustin’ out my all-time fav ‘Crazy8’ (I’ll share the 40 oz’er). I’m gonna end up with the lampshade on my head (and hopefully NOT be in my underwear this time. Bad sight, that is).
    Luvvie, if you get crunk, lets end up in the closet together. Think of the blogs ya could write! The RUMORS! “Ya’ll hear about Luvvie an’ that crazy whiteboy at her party?! Girl done really lost her mind THIS time!”.
    Oh, and if ya can’t spot me by my lack of pigmentation, I’m wearing my all-time fav-o-rite sneakers (hey, we’re honoring Luvvie here ya know, Queen of Sneaks’), stylin’ my Mutombo 3-Stripes high-tops. With the tongues hangin’ out!
    Wow. I am a mess! “Blame it on the all-lll-lll-ccc-ohol”
    Luvvie, love ya for invitin’ me.
    Blog 15,000 times. I’ll be around for the party!

    Thank yuh.
    **channels Sister Odell’s frienemy, Sister Wright**

    Here’s tuh da Igtastic One. The One that keeps us on the high of Ig, with low comedy. With her love of 4 page letters (not enclosed with kisses), her disdain for hairhattery and eHate, her love of roasts and concern for Mr. West… she has kept many of us from stabbing co-workers in the neck with pencils.

    We’s heah tuh pray, that the Lawd who saw fit to let her slide by the “Sense” line for her extra bowl of jolof, will keep her Ig in His hands. *starts singin and clappin* For he’s got the whole World, in His hands! He’s got the itty bitty babies (SING WITH ME!) in His hands…

    Oh, is my time up? Wells nah, here’s to Luvvie, and 150 + mo. Hey DJ!! Get it goin’!! **takes a swig of Guiness and starts James Brown Shuffle**

    *annoyingly clinking wine glass for attention*


    On this most excellent occasion of occasions, I’d like to give an honor to Gawd, who’s the head of my life, the passer, the firslady, and each one of y’all, in your respectable places. Luvvie is a great person- she was the very first to comment on my new blog, and she’s guided me through this scary trip into the blogospherical atmosphere. Because of this, I just gotta sang:

    “You’re once, twice, three tiiiimes a laaaydayyy.”

    I gots my drank and my two-step, and that’s about it. I’m too old for all that other stuff, so I’m definitely keeping it classy!!
    Congrats on 150, and keep blowing us away!!

    “Wow Luvvie. That was some wild/crazy party! I think someone said we finished it off singin’ a duet, arm-in-arm of the “Breakfast Song”; got it on their camera-phone. Hope THAT don’t end up on YouTube . Luvvie, Luvvie, wake up girl. Can you help me find my pants? And you better get somethin’ on too. Before someone see’s us…”

    I’m not late am I?

    Of course not! Right on CP time!

    It really doesn’t make sense for someone to be so unbelievably silly and unforgivably on point on a daily basis.

    Like I told the VSB guys a few months ago, you’re truly an inspiration.

    Enough sentiment though, lets get back to drinking and acting a fool!

    The stanky legg is the official dance of all things celebratory and your 150th post is a big celebration. Congrats!
