Fourth of July Party

We had our incredible blowout Fourth of July party (which is actually held on the 3rd here in Chicago)

City Mouse, the Iwanskis and I attended Lorraine's "Trailer Trash Theme" party which was held at my place. We all had our Trailer Trash themed names.

Lorraine is "Merlene Hogswaller"
The Spouse is "Buck Hogswaller"
The Child is "Li'l Bit" ('cause we don't rightly know who her daddy really is)
I'm now "Two-Buck" since my name really IS Buck, but it's already been taken.

Again, we had THE most fabulous time!
I never thought that there could be a more enjoyable gathering EVER held in my apartment.
The party theme carried itself out perfectly.
Pics will follow to prove it.
The menu was utterly Trailer Trash.
It almost set off the fire alarm:
Devilled eggs
Jell-o with fruit cocktail
Crackers with Cheez Whiz
Home-made Corn Dogs
Frozen Watermelon Daiqueris
Battered-Fried Twinkies with chocolate sauce

Then we all went on the roof and watched the fireworks. It was incredible. I've never even been on the roof of my building to watch the fireworks before.

At one point, I told everyone that my parents really gave me the middle name of "Buckner" so that I could be called "Buck".

My last name is "Wheat"
(Buck Wheat, get it?)

That got quite a laugh until I told them that if I'd been born a girl, my middle name would have been "Creama" (Creama Wheat, get it?)

Everyone here didn't believe me, so I said, "Let's call my mom!"
We got my mom on the phone, passed the phone around to everyone and she had a wonderful time talking to everyone.
She also happily confirmed the "Creama Wheat" legend.
And that I am, indeed, called "Buck" Wheat.

We called JP and The Neighbor during the party as well. Wonderful.

Lorraine, The Spouse, Miss Healthypants and The Child all sang some very impressive karaoke (which I have on video, probably much to their dismay).

I'll post lots of fun pics and and videos as soon as my camera re-charges itself up. (We wore it out)

I still can't believe how incredibly fun this is; actually meeting, connecting and really loving our blog connections -- I doubt that many folks ever have this much pleasure in life.

Well, Dooder, (to steal MHP's name), it's like I announced earlier tonight (way before the daqs kicked in)...I truly feel it is a blessing to be here and share this time with y'all. And considering how many daqs I had and how late it is and the fact that I did that impossible aHa song on karaoke just now, I really get snaps for spelling shit right.
