Some day...

Some day, I will have a party.

I will invite everyone on my IM lists, my Friendster lists, my LinkedIn lists, my mailing lists, my LJ list [of course], my address book, I will go back and find my elementary, junior high, high school, and college friends, my coworkers, my neighbors, my former neighbors. I will scour my stacks of undealt with correspondence collected over the years in various hithers and yons, and get back in touch with all those I never meant to lose touch with. I will invite them to the party.

Now, I run in many circles. Most of these people don't know one another. Some of them love one another. Some are merely friends and acquaintances. Some of these people don't like each other. Some have outright hostility. I expect that out of this party will arise several lifelong friendships, perhaps a marriage or two or three or even a marriage of three or four or more. Children will be conceived. Dreams will be ignited and shattered. Jobs will be won; a fortune will be lost. People will swim naked. Someone will be thrown in the water fully clothed. At least one person will tear another's hair out by the roots.

People will speak of this party for years to come. Legends will grow that place people there who were thousands of miles away that fateful weekend. Reputations will be built and ruined.

prettypammie and I may have to leave the country for a time, until the heat cools down; we've been meaning to tour Europe anyway.

Some day, I will have a party.
