News, but not the serious kind
Have another round? No, I mean drinks!
Blog Guy, I need some of your great advice on home entertaining.
Is it something that can be solved by a fancy Williams-Sonoma gadget?
Not this time. I’ve invited some of those anti-Gaddafi soldiers over for a home- cooked dinner, and I’m wondering if there’s anything special I should know. We’ll start with pre-dinner drinks in the living room.
That sounds lovely. Make sure they have a clear line of fire.
Excuse me? Clear line of fire?
You know, they’ll want to use your sofa’s arm rest for their assault weapons, so you should only put one fighter on each piece of furniture.
Yikes! What about my dining room? I’ve planned a formal setting for an eight-course meal with my Limoges china. Is that okay?
This is kind of scary, Blog Guy. When the shooting starts should I take shelter in the bathroom?
Probably not. Sometimes those guys like to blast away on full automatic in the bathtub, just to hear the brass hit the porcelain. Have a good time.
