Birthday Photo Adventure

On Saturday the 9th, the same day that I am “celebrating my birthday”:, I’m also planning on having a photo adventure as part of my birthday festivities. I figure, it’s my birthday, I can do whatever I want, right? Right!

So, sometime before 3pm, I intend to do one of the following:

# Visit the Dallas Arboretum
# Go on a hike on the Trinity River
# Visit lake Ray Roberts
# Visit the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens
# Take a public transportation trip to downtown Dallas

If you would like to come along, I’d love to have you. You’re welcome to come and shoot, or model, or just enjoy the company. There are a few people who have already stated they want to come. If there are any others, speak now. Depending on who is going (group size matters in some cases) I’ll choose the place and start time accordingly. We’ll meet somewhere between 5am and 12pm, depending on who is going and where we’re going. So, let me know if you’re interested.

Birthday Party!

I know this is short notice. It’s my birthday I can do what I want. Neener. RSVP ASAP. With such short notice, I’m afraid no one will make it and then it isn’t even worth throwing.

So, here’s the scoop…

*Who*: All of you and your (nice, hot, easy) friends, girlfriends and wives
*What*: Party! (Playboy Mansion Pajama Party Theme)
*When*: Saturday, July 9th, 2005 @ 3pm, 6pm, 7pm, or 9pm (see below)
*Where*: Reverend Mansion (email or call for directions)
*Why*: Because I have successfully completed 27 trips around the sun.

The party will be held in many pieces in order to accommodate all the different types of people that I’d like to share my birthday with.

At 3pm, the “family friendly” party will begin. While there may be an occasional beer or glass of wine, profanity and debauchery will be at an all time low during this period. This part of the party is kid safe and most of my family will be there. Since none of you with children responded, this portion of the party isn’t very well planned. My brother will be there with his two kids. We’ll probably go to the park around the corner, or maybe even go swimming in the kid pool. If you plan on coming at this time, let me know if swimming is a good idea. If so, I’ll make the proper arrangements.

At 6pm, we’ll start grilling hamburgers and hot dogs back at the house. This is still “kid friendly”.

Around 7ish, cake and ice cream will be served, and presents will be opened. Again, still “kid friendly”.

Around 8ish, the kids will start leaving and we’ll start putting away our fine china and valuables.

Around 9pm, the “adult” party will begin. From this point forward you’re welcome to cuss like a sailor, drink like a fish, and dress like a slut. In fact, all three of those things are mandatory.

We’ll say the festivities will end, tentatively, around 2am. If you anticipate needing a place to sleep, let me know in advance, we’ve got lots of room. If you tell me in advance, I can probably assure you a nice comfortable spot. If you don’t, you may end up on the floor or in bed with Jess and I ;).

In regard to the “Playboy Mansion Pajama Party” theme. Well.. only three of you responded to that part of the request, so, I decided to mix them together in a way that should make the three of you happy. For the girls, wear some sexy lingerie, crotchless panties and a corset, a t-shirt and panties, or wear nothing at all. If you don’t want to dress up, don’t. Whatever you want. For the guys, hell… wear whatever you want, I don’t think I’ll be too concerned about them. If you’re lucky, I’ll be in a crimson robe with matching slippers. If you come earlier than 9 we’ll provide a changing room for you to put your pajamas on in. I’ll be there too, just in case you need any help. ;)

And, once again for those of you who missed it the first time around, here’s my wish list: “All”:, “Under $500″:, “Under $250″:, “Under $100″:, “Under $50″:, ” Under $25″:, and “Absolutely, totally, 100% free”: I don’t expect gifts at all. Your presence is a great gift. However, if you’d like, the list above should prove useful. I know this is all short notice, so, if you just print out a picture of what you’ve bought that’s on it’s way, I’ll understand entirely.

So, um, yeah, that’s it. RSVP. NOW!
