Pardon me - I'm a procrastinator

I think the word procrastination finds a new depth of meaning with me, but I am being harsh with myself. Have been AWOL because I was pretty sick the last week. A bit better now, going for tests on Saturday.

Anyway I have been amazingly lazy in honoring some tags and so apologize to everyone.

The first one was a desktop meme which I was tagged by Marzie, Twister Sister and Amel's Realm. And a just recently Titania as well. So here's what my desktop looks like

I also wanted to thank Amel's Realm for the wonderful awards she gave me, 'Totally Fab' award and 'Schmooze' award. Thank you so much.

And now for the dinner party meme
Dinner Party Meme: Come and Join Me! ;-D

Amel’s Realm has tagged me to do this meme. Since Halloween is coming up I think I will make my party a cool Halloween shindig.

Since I can’t cook it will all be catered. ☺

This is how it will look!

The rules as set out by Graham (the originator of this meme) are as follows:-

The idea is to work your way through the eight phases of the dinner party, answering all of the questions on the way - being as honest and creative as you wish. Once your homework has been completed, please nominate any bloggers who's "virtual" dinner party you would love to hear about.

1) The Dinner Party Theme: You have decided to hold a dinner party. When writing the invites you clearly state that fancy dress must be worn. Assuming that cost is no issue, who or what would you dress up as, and why?

Could I be anyone other than Catwoman - I don't think so.

2) The Invitations: This dinner party is for 6 people (including yourself), you are allowed to invite any 5 other people (either past, present, real or fictional), who would you invite and why?

6 people - this puts me in a predicament. I think this party calls for fun and excitement and a little danger....
1. Superman
2. Lex Luthor
3. Batman
4. Joker
5. Wonder woman
6. Circe

This is going to be blood curdling fun. I can't wait...meeeooowww
Who cares if I'm breaking the rules by not counting myself - I am Catwoman I can do anything......

3) The Starter: You are preparing the menu, which dish(es) would you choose as the starter, and why?

I have left it all to the caterers they did send some pictures.

Snake Bites **************** Jumbo Shrimps ************Torched Pumpkin Strips

Pictures taken from: The Food Network and Perfect Entertaining.

4) The Main Course: Okay, now for the main course? and what drink would you serve with it?
There is going to be a lavish buffet of dishes from all corners of the world. After all it's a gathering of the greatest heroes and their nemesis...

Some of the dishes include:
Steak Bites with Bloody Mary dipping sauce

-----------------------------------------------------Baked Bones

Barbequed Bat wings

Drinks: Unlimited - I plan to get my guests VERY drunk *insert evil laugh here*

5) The
Sweet: Finally, the sweet. Which would you choose, and why?

It will be a bewitched cake but of course...

6) The Entertainment: The dinner party has gone swimmingly, everybody has had fun, conversation and drinks have been flowing all evening. At the end of the meal you announce that everybody should perform their 'party piece' (no matter how strange or pointless). What party piece would you perform?

This is where I set my plan in motion and take the guests to my underground fight club where I already have very interesting fights and bets going on. I wanted to add theses heroes to my plethora...muuhhaaaa

Picture taken from:

7) The End Of The Evening: The party is over, everybody has gone home, the house suddenly feels empty and quiet. Your eyes fix on the hi-fi in the corner of the room. You search though your CD collection to put on some music as you want to listen to one more track before your retire to bed. Which track would you play?

Born to be Wild!!!!!!

P.S: If I have forgotten any other meme or award - please let me know....

That's a lot to catch up... I'm sorry you haven't been feeling well... take care :) {{HUGS}}

Amel's Realm said...

OOHHHH this is such a SUPER FUN party!!! WHOOOPPEEEE!!!!

I'm drooling over the food...mmm...creative set of guests, too! ;-D

By the way, sorry about the illness. Glad you're feeling well now. GOOD LUCK for the tests!!!! ;-D

LOVE the desktop pic. You look GORGEOUS as usual! ;-D

The Real Mother Hen said...

What a cool Catwoman! :)
I especially like the drinking part - getting your guests drunk! Ok I'm coming over :)

I seriously think you are an excellent host :)

QUASAR9 said...

lol, I'm all for the Snake Bites, Jumbo Shrimps & bbq pumpin sclices

The bat wings look cool too, love charcoal peppers, and what are the others chicken wings in breadcrumbs?

But the baked bone? - what's that all about. You are supposed to save the bones for the dogs, its good for their teeth and the marrow is good for their 'joints' and coat too.

Maybe we should try sucking on bone marrow, much better than cod liver oil or whale oil any day

Pen and the Sword said...

Glad you are feeling better. This was too cute :o)

noisms said...

From one hardeneded procrastinator to another: you're not alone.

Rambler said...

sounds like an awesome party that one :)

B said...

Random Magus said...

I am just in constant pain and discomfort :(

Amel's Realm:
It was a fun meme to do:)
Thanks for the compliment you got me grinning from ear to ear.

The Real Mother Hen:
So then its decided we HAVE to party together one day

The bones for just the horrific effect :)
PS: I love sucking on the bone marrow - how awfully cannibalistic of me ;-D

Pen and the Sword:
Thanks - but still not feeling a 100% much less actually.

That's good to know :)

I especially like the fight club:)

Thank you - me too. Bit tired of this constant ache. Thanks

This post gave me a lot of laughs, so it's down as a Quality Post. You're causing a lot of trouble with that guest list!

don't forget the dry ice in the bottom of their glasses, to make their poisonous concoctions smoke in sinister fashion.

Oh my god that was awesome. I am going to have to do that dinner party meme. I have to think up a good one. Mine will pale in comparison to this one. Cheers! :o)

Love the pic of you and your honey. A cute couple.

HollyGL said...

Yea, what fun!! Will Brad Pitt be attending the secret fight club after-party? :)

Take care of yourself. Don't push yourself too hard. Trust me, I know. ;)

Mike French said...

Sorry to hear you haven't been well Amber or should I call you Catwoman!

Mad dinner party. Love to come, my super powers are that I can answer my kid's question of "what are we doing today?" even after it has been asked 1000 times in the space of 5 minutes.

Mark Dykeman said...

Man, I love this post! I'm a big comic book fan! Although I found that superheroes scene when the Wonder Twins kissing disturbing... actually, I thought it was hilarious!

Catwoman - I suspect you'd be quite popular as Selina.

Getty72 said...

Best wishes ~ Graham
