Social event of the season...

Damn, having a party is a lot or work! And there is still a lot to clean up. But I thought I would take a few minutes and share some pictures.

I think all in all we had about 40 guests. And everyone seemed to have a very good time. People were slow to get into the Karaoke, but once they did (after the consumption of copious amounts of alcohol) it really started to swing. In fact, we paid Tribute Entertainment to stay an extra hour until midnight. And then it was only because he had to get going did we finally stop. I think the hardcore crowd would have sung for another couple of hours.

We had a great time. Of course, we had way too much food. So we sent a lot home with people. But better too much than too little right?

Those of you who listen to my audio posts will be happy to know that Christine, who reads the blog regularly, put in a song request for me without my knowing it. And I bet you can guess what it was. Yep, I'm Too Sexy. Of course, I did it. Who am I to refuse my public?

I'll have to see if anyone has a picture of me doing that song. Because when it came to the part "I shake my little tush on the catwalk", I shook it, baby!

I got her back by making her sing "Baby One More Time".

Here is a perfect two picture set that captures the progression of the party perfectly:

This is Sharra, Jason, and Amanda (Mandy) at the beginning of the party. By the way, my house is not really crooked. That's how Jennifer takes pictures. Notice how well behaved and mellow Sharra is? Fast forward five hours...
And she and Wendy are licking the chocolate fountain!

Don't they look purty?

This is Christine and I singing Paradise By the Dashboard Light. Of all the songs I sang last night this one and She's A Lady, which I sang for Mrs. Fab, were my favorites. Check out those tan gams of mine.

Here I am kissing Jason after we sang The Partridge Family's I Think I Love You. Let the record show that I did all this stuff stone cold sober. I am just that dorky.

This is Wendy (a different Wendy) and TJ and their little girl Taylor in Mrs. Fab's stuffed animal room. I don't know if I spelled their daughter's name right. I hope I did.

There were two Wendys, two Jasons, two Christines, and four Jennifers at the party. I guess we're working to get to the point where eventually there will be one name for all women and one name for all men.

This is Regina, Liz, and Steve. Steve was the best singer of the night. He's in a band, and he stuck to his strengths. He didn't try to do anything stupid, like I did when I tried to sing Radar Love. That was hard. It's easier when I do it by myself in the car. Umm..the singing, I mean.

Marsha, Dave, and Michele. These are three of the folks I'll be working with when I go back to the local branch.

This is Laura and Jennifer (the one who works for me and is plotting my overthrow).

And here is Sharra, Wendy, Christine, and (another) Jennifer belting out Love Shack.

And here is Jake. What a stud, eh? I gotta tell ya ladies, he's dreamy. Hmm..it looks as if he may have had an adult beverage or two or fourteen. He did a very loud rendition of House of the Rising Sun.This is Kim, Scott, their son Will, and Sharra. Kim is pregnant again! Way to go, Kim!

I don't know who was singing here, but it certainly inspired Dave to shake his groove thang. And I didn't even know he had a groove thang. That's Jennifer sitting down, Jason in the backround (see how everyone has the same name?) and Christine (see?) clapping her hands.

Here's Mandy and Jennifer singing If I Had $1,000,000. With, of course, the King in the background.Here's Cheryl and Dean stuffing themselves :) In the background is Christine and Ed. Ed was the karaoke guy. He was awesome!

Here's Michael. I'm not sure what song he's doing here. He did several, including a very impressive rendition of Ice Ice Baby. Michael was the one who fell for the old marble trick. I emptied out the medicine cabinets in both bathrooms and filled them with marbles, figuring eventually somebody would do a little snooping. Heh heh.

OK, I think the dishwasher is done. I have to get back to cleaning. I'm trying to get as much done as possible before Mrs. Fab wakes up. And then I'm gonna take her to lunch. I've got to get this place looking spiffy because I am renting out a room later today. I'll tell you all about it tomorrow.

I have way to much garbage for the Tuesday pickup. I don't know what I'm going to do with it all.

I hope you're all having a great weekend!

Ladies--I'm not going to be able to clean it ALL up, but most of the heavy stuff will be done. It's the least I could do. She worked her butt off for this party.

Well thanks for sharing I felt like I was there. I would also have liked to indulge in the chocolate fountain with the lovely Wendy. ;)

What's the stuffed animal room all about? I'm intrigued.

You BETTER have dedicated that Partridge Family song to me as I was the one who requested it! And don't even try to lie, I'll know if you're lying 'cause I have that ESPN thing going on, lol.

What a great time!! I really am going to fly down from New York for your next party!

BTW, in the picture of the girls doing Love Shack, it took me a while to understand that it wasn't Elvis' hand on Sharra's shoulder!

Bradley... I must say that I LOVE the marble idea! It's genius. My friend and I used to do this thing where we hooked up a bucket of bouncy balls so when someone opened the kitchen door the bouncy balls went flying and bouncing everywhere. It was magic. You should put some bouncy balls in with your marbles to add to the fun!

Sounds like a fabulous time! Next time, invite us all there. We'll stay the night and help you clean in the morning. What a blast.

My hubby was looking at your site with me and he wants to know what all the pictures (when you are doing karoake) are all about.

Your party looked like it was a blast! :-) (Which of course makes it a success)

And you're cleaning up? I think I'd have more parties if I could get the rest of the family to do the clean-up.

Glad it was fun!

Looks like the Fabs know how to par-tay! Hope you had as good a time as it looks like in the pictures.

And doing most of the cleaning before Mrs. Fab wakes up. Permission to clone you/

Blogger Mr. Fabulous said...

Kattbanjoe--Not even a little bit :)

Mel--Mrs. Fab does not allow my to post pictures of her :(

Shirley--Maybe it was! He may be gone, but his spirit is always with us!

Bluepaintred--Gosh, a chance to clean up after a bunch of drunken Canadians? Where do I sign? LOL

Leave--YOU know you were invited LOL

Karl--Oh, you will definitely be there!

Meghan--Well, it's more fun than babysitting! (which is why Meghan couldn't come)

3T--It was great. We'll have another but probably once a year on this scale is enough.

Shelli--I emailed you :)

Dutchy--Next time you come, and bring the wodden shoes!

Dawn--Permission granted, as long as that's a euphamism for something else. I wouldn't want anything to interfere with our friendship!

I feel the need to let you all know that Mrs. Fab was the best hostess in the whole world last night. Mr. Fab should be cleaning this morning. She made sure we all had beverages and food and we never felt like a burden. Just to all you know (I hope someone else beside Mr. Fab reads this) that I have video of Mr. Fab singing "I'm too sexy" and I will send it to Mr. Fab to see if he posts it. My only regret is missing (I saw it, I just didn't video it) him "shake his tush." Overall, it was a great time to be had by all.

No, I requested a Partridge Family OR a Brady Bunch song. I'm deeply hurt that you don't remember. Must be the age, lol.

Ellie Mae (Christine)--If that vdeo ever sees the light of day you will work every single weekend between now and doomsday! LOL

Blair--I stand corrected. OK, I retroactively dedicate that song to you and your fabulous self! :)

Some Girl--Well, he's going out with Wendy. And he might be a little more rednecky than you are used to. And he seems inordinately fond of very bizarre porn. But he IS dreamy...

J's Girlfriend--I don't know about that. I'm pretty sure you're gonna win!

Chelle--There will ALWAYS be alchohol and karoake. And next time there will be CHELLE!

Where is Mrs Fab?

I think it is really cool you are cleaning while she is sleeping my kind of man. Heck my hubby would have been sleeping while I was cleaning and pretending to sleep all day so he would not have to help. hehehe

Sounds like an awesome party!

Didn't you say you moved down South? You could dig a hole in the ground shove your garbage in it, and set it on fire when no one's looking.

I LOVE the Partridge family. 'I think I love you' is a great song...I can just hear you go deep with 'I don't know what's it's all about...'
Good going Mr. Fabulous!
Not sorry I missed it though, I hate parties, sorry ;)

My question is: Why aren't my parties that much fun?? And wow, that Michael is a hottie. Even moreso for falling victim to your medicine cabinet prank (which is AWESOME, btw). Is he single?

LOL the medicine cabinet prank is something my husband would do. :)Looks like everyone had a great time! Nice of you to let Mrs. Fab sleep in after the party ... and what were you doing up so early anyways?

OMG. That looks like it was worth the cleaning up you have to do. so much fun!

Great party. I have never seen a chocolate fountain before, and now I want one.

No amount of alcohol would get me singing..and so no audio singing post from me. Your eardrums are safe :) I love watching other people belting it out though.

Did you record any party noises?

I am soooooo coming to the next party!
