talking to empty chairs

Why Are You Not Partying With Your Editirx In Glamorous Los Angeles, Right Now?

Will her friend Clint Eastwood show up? MAAAAYYYYYBEPEOPLE! We just heard from your Editrix, who is at her party at Busby’s East! This is at 5364 Wilshire Blvd., in Los Angeles, as if you don’t know. (323) 525-2615 is the phone number. Anyway she is “making new friends” which based on past antics might have wacky consequences. So go join her, for fun! She is the pretty one, above! Just show up and make an introduction! They’ll be fun! And we think there’s free beer? Don’t quote us on this. (Go ahead and quote us.) There will be no better place to be when Barry wins (or loses!) then with fellow Wonketteers. Do it!

    I may not be drinking with you, but I started earlier, so I'm a few drinks ahead, that's why. Also, I got to see George Allen concede again. I'd like to see that every few years.

  • Dr_Zoidberg

    I can't party with you in LA!!! I live in Wyoming, and I can't drive at night because my night vision is no good.

  • gullywompr

    I called that number, but couldn't really hear anything over some chick shouting about victory sex in the background. She sounded familiar…

  • HouseOfTheBlueLights

    My best friend and favorite ginger just showed up at my house, and casually mentioned that she has tix to THE PARTY! Yes, THAT one, Bammer's party in CHICAGO! Why is she at the House of the Blue Lights. I am flattered but she is crazy.

    Colorado+Nevada+Oregon would be enough. We could lose Florida, Ohio, AND Virginia and win at this point.
