Looking forward to it. Will bring a bag of orange-colored chemically treated snack food.

Raph G. Neckmann said...

Oh, I'll be there if Jedward are! Whoopee!

Can I bring the family? I'll bring some of my favourite aniseed liqueur too!

Heather said...

Having read right through this post, I think you've already tried out the poteen TFE! I just hope you've left enough to go round. Have a great time with your special guest(s). Sorry I can't join you - I have a filthy cold and am sure you'd rather I kept my germs to myself.

Titus said...

It was Skippy what did it for me. I'd follow his little broken twig triangle-symbol anywhere.

Looking forward to it.

Niamh B said...

There better be lashings of ginger ale as well ... for enid

Argent said...

Wish I could be there but my unicycle won't get me that far, so I'll have to put up with being the same shape as a cream cracker for the rest of my natchural. Now, if there had been some sort of a handy bus....?

Dominic Rivron said...

I'll be there.

Hope Holub doesn't spend the night under the sofa.

I'll bring my ukulele - we could have a singsong in the kitchen after everyone's got plastered and those without staying power have gone home. I always think the kitchen is the best place at any party.

shug said...

I hope you've made arrangements so that Alexander the great won't be embarassed by his lack of height. Maybe he could sit on a tall chair or come on his horse.

I once drank with the self styled Irish Bard of Poteen at the Cuirt festival and ended up in the canal.

Mairi said...

Thanks for the link to Liz's site, and to through it, to Jim Murdoch's review. I placed my order. Regrets on the party but pass on my congratulations to the guest of honour and say hello to Miss Dickinson and Miss Austen for me.

Jeanne Iris said...

Two Divas from Detroit?! Aretha AND me?! I'll be the one with the popcorn, buttered of course. Would you like some with cinnamon, too?

Thank you, kindly, for this lovely invitation, TFE! I respectfully respondez vous avec... OUI!

Elisabeth said...

Sounds fantastic. I read some of Liz's poetry on Jim Murdoch's blog. It resonates and all this virtual communication with past voices is also exciting.

I'll be there in spirit from far away Australia, where we don't usually get to sample potato liquor.

Tomás Serrano said...

Thank you for your visit to Salfon and comment. You have wonderful images: the top one is fascinating!

Poetikat said...

I'll be there. I'd like to have a word with Pontius, if he'll quit washing his hands long enough to spare me the time.

Looking forward to the shindig.

Kat

The Weaver of Grass said...

Wild horses will not keep me away. Shall be late arriving as I am out from very early in the morning - shall also be dead beat after walking all day - but make no mistake about it, i wouldn't miss it for the world. Will bring my blackberry whisky and my sloe vodka. Once you have tasted my blackberry whisky you will never want the plain stuff again! (if you believe that you will believe anything). See you Thursday evening. PS Don't eat all the food before I arrive, will you.

*shudders...
the last time we went to a poteen party (at our house), the ronald ended up with hooks in his back and the dreams snuck up on us about seven hours later....

*packs bags and makes way over :-)

look forward to meeting all the lads!

Sandra Leigh said...

I do so look forward to the party. I don't see any mention of a dress code, so I assume it's okay to come as I am, which is just as well, because I have a 10 1/2 hour work day tomorrow. I'm a' gonna need that poteen! I look forward to seeing Padre Pio, perhaps in several places at once.

Liz said...

TFE, two last-minuters confirmed, Oscar himself and Susan Boyle who dreamt a dream just like I'm doing when I think of the poteen party...can't wait to see the outcome of all those folk mingling and the poteen a-flowing, this could be historic, TFE, hope you're prepared for going down in history as the host-it with the mosts-it and the bestest guest-list in living memory...
oh and Jimmy must surely be seeing himself in the chandeliers by now, it's been a week of constant chammying...and are rafters de-cobwebed? you know what folk are like for climbing walls when the poteen hits home...
Will bring the Spanish 'agua ardiente' (burning/ardent water)for the morning after and the hair-of-the-dog...
That's about it TFE, just got to keep head on shoulders to answer your questions which, by-the-way, fell down the black hole at back of laptop so got to start afresh...will have them finished by noon though, no messing... ; )
Let me know what wee gift you'd like else you`ll end up with some Lyons Tea Minstrels left over from the Daz and Brylcreem days.... ; )
laters

(word verification: Lambada...a hint if I ever saw one...get tape deck ready!)

Liz said...

P.S. ...looking forward to meeting everyone in the comments-box, they seem like very good fun...oh forgot to say, rumour has it Einstein means to steal some poteen to start up his old, old mini to prove a point about going a step too far...lock and key!

(word verification: mashhup...TFE, what a smart wv you have...; ))

Wigeon said...

How could I refuse that wonderful invitation? Do you think my supervisor would notice if I rolled in pissed to our seminar. One of your guests, maybe more than one, shares a birthday with me and as I rate him then I've got to be there. Thanks TFE.

Karen said...

Can't wait! Being a WV hillbilly, I know all about moonshine, but Poteen is new to me, so be prepared to prop me up. I'll be the one in the corner with the silly grin on my face!

willow said...

Okay, are you serving some of that killer Drambui-mustard stuff?

Barry said...

I will be delayed by a full day of chempotherapy, so I hope you don't mind my being a little late.

Perhaps a little poteen in the chemo bag would help get me in the mood?
