Virtual Girl's Night Out - Librarian Edition


It's Friday and it's Time to Party!! It's been an extremely long week, so I need shake off the stress and party... The lovely Ann from 'Ann Again and Again' is having her weekly Virtual Girls Night Out - Come join the fun! There's great music and drinks, fun party games, and even a Mr. Linky to add your blog for VGNO visits! Ann knows how to throw a great party! :) Wondering why it's the 'Librarian Edition'? Ann has spent the week working in her daughter's school's library - so this VGNO is much needed for her to shake off the cobwebs, dust and mold spores for some fun... ;)

How about some music? Let's go on a road trip...we can use Jo Dee Messina's song 'Heads Carolina, Tails California' to help us decide:


The drink of the night is the Darien Librarian - Ann has the recipe posted and I've made one special just for you:
Now, if you're not a Whisky drinker (I'm not), I do have an alternative for you - my old standby, Captain Morgan's and Coke:
What's a party without some yummy hors d'oeuvres?

Fiesta Shrimp Cocktail:
Salmon Croustades:
Cucumber Roulades:

Time For A Party Game!

Because Ann was surrounded by books this week, she could envision herself as a Librarian...but one with a wild side, of course! So the name game she came up with is the 'Librarian Alter Ego'. Straight from Ann's blog, here's how it works:

Librarian Alter Ego

If your first name begins with letters A - E, your first name would be: Bubbles. Follow the chart to see what your Librarian's Alter Ego name is.

First Name=
A - E: Bubbles
F - J: Cookie
K - O: Pepper
P - T: Honey
U - Z: Pebbles

Last Name=
A - E: Featherbottom
F - J: Ivanabee-Queen
K - O: Rhea-Listik
P - T: Anitacocktail
U - Z: Mona-Lott

I'm Honey Ivanabee-Queen! If I had kept my maiden name, I'd be Honey Anitacocktail... ;) OK, your turn - what would your Librarian Alter Ego be?


And before I let you get on to the partying, I want to mention a special Giveaway being hosted by the Crazy Justine over at Tiney's Froggy Bloggy... She's celebrating her 200th post with a Bicentennial Mystery Giveaway... She's pulling out all the stops - even wearing her crown:
And she isn't leaving us completely in the dark about the mystery giveaway, she did post a hint image:
So hop on over here to enter her giveaway...you can tell her Stacy sent you! Wait - maybe you better not... ;)


Hop on over to Ann's to join the Virtual GNO and check out all the other cool bloggers participating in this very special event. Anyone can join in the fun... Sign Mr. Linky and visit those that sign-in! Go blog-hopping! And most importantly, Have Fun! Well? What are you waiting for? :)
