If I Had a House Warming Party, Would You Come To It?
So, I’ve had an address in Surrey for almost a year now1, so I’m thinking it’s about time to throw that housewarming party I’ve been meaning to have. I mean, my place is big enough to hold a small convention in, so I certainly have the space. And I love to cook for showing off purposes, so there’d be excellent food. The problem, however, is that I don’t have much faith that anyone will come.
I’ve had a few friends who have been brave enough to make the trip out to my place for dinner2, but it’s really few and far between. And I can’t blame people for not coming here more often – I don’t live anywhere near a Skytrain station and since virtually all my friends live in Vancouver, a lot of them don’t have cars and taking Skytrain plus a bus that doesn’t come around very often is not exactly good times. When my friend Patrice lived in Surrey, she threw a housewarming party and almost no one went to it, but when she moved to New West, her place was *packed* for her housewarming. Coincidence – I think not.
Anyway. I’m putting this out to you, blog readers. If I threw a housewarming party, would you be willing to make a trip all the way to Surrey to attend?
- nope, not yet able to say that in “live” in Surrey. Because really, can you call what happens here “living”? [↩]
- and I love you all for that! You know who you are [↩]
