honestly, garden party works better than party party.

since you have the online ear of pete townshend, you could probably tell him to put in a word for that before paul embarrasses any more people.

and thanks for all the wishes :)


also, that princess photo is priceless.

PRICELESS, i tells ya!


oooh, that looks like a lovely setting for a gaaahden party madame !!!

I'll bring the havarti and pumpernickle!

Oh, and why not? A sampler pack of Great Lakes Brewing Co. For later.

Should there be dancing and croquet?

Or just dancing?

Or just croquet?

Michael Bains

Since I just pulled a muscle dancin' over at aif's, I gotta vote for croquet; w/ or w/o dancing. oooouhhh...)

Poor thing. Personally, I like "party party," probably because of the girl in the red gown who sat in my lap at Minnie's in San Francisco. But that's neither here nor there. If you want to feel less alone and tragic in your mistake, you can check out all the misheard lyrics at

It's The Archive of Misheard Song Lyrics. One of the most famous is Jimi Hendrix singing "...'scuse me while I kiss the sky." A lot of stoned-out hippies, including me, were pretty sure he was saying "...kiss this guy."

And we were OK with that. Party party!

My garden party is going to put whatever happened at Minnie's to shame.

All the blogeresses are going to be wearing gowns of some sort.

I'm sure one of them will be red!

Yes, we're going to a garden party
Yes, we're going to a garden party
Yes, we're going to a garden party

The Fat Lady Sings

Lemme tell ya - my hubby and I have very specific ideas for the house we will be building for our retirement (well - more of a career change than retirement, actually; as we are not waiting till 60 to do it!). We are putting together an entire outdoors kitchen - complete with furniture, arbors slathered in scented jasmine and clematis, and room to dance by candlelight till dawn peeks over the horizon. Like you - I have visions of that garden party - big, floppy hats, cool, supper dresses, soft, green grass to run barefoot through - and you can play croquet or whatever the hell you want all your little heart desires! There will be swings, and big trees and every kind of sylvan Tolkien fantasy you can think of. I have wanted something like this my entire life, and by damn I’m gonna have it! We are saving like mad for this – ‘cause this is one dream that must come true. As for Sir Paul – he can party party, or garden party – I really could care less. I know how I want to do it, and that’s that! You are, of course invited my dear. Everyone will be – that’s the beauty of having lots, and lots of room!

Uh - that should be 'cool SUMMER dresses'. See - that's what happens when your mind runs faster than your fingers!


dancing and badminton !!

The Fat Lady Sings is now my Official Party Planner!

I thought "supper" dresses sounded quaint -- and pretty.



this is nice, 'cuz i'm cleaning out closets today ... and i'm dancing at BG's garden party at the same time !!

Here are some of the lyrics from Ricky Nelson's 'Garden Party':

I went to a garden party
To reminisce with my old friends
A chance to share old memories
And play our songs again
When I got to the garden party
They all knew my name
No one recognized me
I didn't look the same

But it's all right now
I learned my lesson well
You see, ya can't please everyone
So ya got to please yourself

People came from miles around
Everyone was there
Yoko brought her walrus
There was magic in the air
'N' over in the corner
Much to my surprise
Mr Hughes hid in Dylan's shoes
Wearing his disguise


You're right, garden party works much better.

Just goes to show you Macca was not the best one in the bunch with a lyric.

It can't be a proper outdoor entretainment space without gazing globes...

And its's not a party without giant pick-up sticks!

rock the garden blue girl with that right wing sound!

Did McCartney leave a comment?

blue girl

Oooh, Holy Moly! I didn't even think of that!

Well, he'll understand that all 5 year old princesses say "stupid" when their so disappointed.



You can't tell Paul anything about writing lyrics. George was the same way. "George," I said. "'Let it be?' Let what be? And who's Mother Mary and why is she whispering? And anyway, didn't I hear a song recently that sounded a lot like this?" John, now, he was always taking my advice. Did you know he originally wrote it as Broccoli Fields Forever? He listened to me. Except about Yoko.

blue girl

Ringo! Shhhhhh.

Yoko's at the Garden Party.

Wanna play pick-up sticks?


I say we have dancing, croquet AND badminton.

Adorable Girlfriend

Great, who invited Joko?


BG, thanks for making this the besst (online)birthday evAr!!


It's gonna ROCK as long as Ringo's mixing drinks. If only Harry Nilsson was here.

And I claim first dance with Barbara Bach.


I'm not sure that the song Garden Party is a really good one, since it ends up being against them.

Personally, I'd rather drive a truck.


stupid you!!! Paul is a Genious!!! and fuckyou!!!!
