Announcement: Tea with Ms. Fettleston for Social Saturday

This Saturday, I am pleased to announce that Ms. Fettleston will be hosting a tea in her house for all and sundry. Here is her invitation:

Dear Ms. Mira,

I am so happy that you will allow me to invite all the nice young men, women, witches, ghosts, Gods and demons over to my house this Saturday. I will serve raspberry tarts, blueberry scones, lemon drops and my special oatmeal raisin cookies.

I will seat Gods and demons at opposite ends of the living room, and I will ask all demons not to use bad words. It is quite inappropriate to say bad words at a tea, you know, dear.

If guests have any special dietary considerations, they are welcome to bring their own food, dear. Also, I really must put my foot down and say that guests are not allowed to eat other guests. That would be quite rude, you know, dear.

I quite look forward to the occasion. I hope you can all attend.

Sincerely,

Ms. Fettleston

So, there you have it. The tea will last all day. See you there!

I will attend.

I like blueberry scones.

Thanks for inviting me. Should I bring anything? I can't cook but I have some cake in my bag. It's a bit stale but still good.

Bo said...

Sounds great! Who wants to sit on my lap?

Vic said...

I don't actually eat people. What I do is harmless to an otherwise healthy individual, so please tell me this shindig isn't BYOB (bring your own blood).

Oh, you don't mind if I show up after sundown, do you?

Charlene said...

Hrm, sure, I'll stop by, we'll just have to shake the soldiers first so it might be awhile.

We'll leave the weapons at the door, but the cigs stay with me.

Dear Ms. Mira,

How lovely! I am so pleased to see my invitation has gone out. My goodness, it has been quite awhile since I hosted a tea. How exciting!

I shall begin my preparations today.

Now, if you could pass on my messages.

Ms. morphine-moniza, how lovely of you to offer, but you really don't need to bring slightly stale cake from your bag. Thank you, dear. I will give you a nice package of delicious treats to take home with you.

Mr. Bo, this is a tea party. There will be no naughty lap sitting. My goodness, you young people are so rambunctious.

Mr. Vic, saying that it is harmless does not allow you to dine on the guests, dear. I am purchasing lamb chops for dinner and shall save the packaging for you. After sundown is fine.

Mr. Brandon, well, dear, I hope you work up a good appetite running from the soldiers, dear. I'll have lots of treats for you. You may smoke on the balcony, dear.

I shall see you tomorrow.

Sincerely,

Ms. Fettleston

Bo said...

I suppose next you'll say I have to wear clothes to this event. You humans are so picky.

Kalila said...

Well, I'll be there. I haven't had a good English tea since I met Thor and followed him to America with a group of Norwegian emigrants headed for Minnesota.

Can I bring my friend Nevin? He's our keyboardist and grew up in the Lake District. I know he'd love a good tea. If he comes, can he bring his rabbit? You'll have some of those watercress sandwiches, right?

Candy said...

Oh Ms. Fettleston, I am so excited about your tea party tomorrow! Everything you are serving sounds so delicious! My mouth is watering already! And, if you don't mind, may I stand in your kitchen for a little while? It will be warm and smell so good, giving me that safe and comforting feeling I've almost forgotten;

It will be fun seeing everyone else too. I'm sure we'll all get on and no one will hurt anyone else. And maybe I'll find out where Shadow's food goes when he eats!
Perhaps I could stay and help wash up afterward?

Christine H said...

Dear Mrs. Fettleston,

I would be very happy to attend. I will be coming without any characters however. Well, I think Piffla might come and sit on my shoulder, but I will bring her food. She's an owl sprite, by the way, and a lot of fun.

I have to announce that I am a recovering novelist. I haven't written for five days. It has been very exhausting returning to reality, but rewarding as well.

But I have worked so hard this week, that I think I deserve a little virtual tea party. I can't wait to taste everything!

Nevin said...

Hi, Ms Fettleston! My friend Kalila told me about your party and I'm so excited! It's been so long since I've been to tea. It's one of the few truly charming customs humans have.

Let me know if I can help in any way. I promise I'll try not to shed glitter anywhere.

Christine H said...

Dear Mrs. Fettleston,

I was wondering, would you mind if I brought some crumpets and strawberry jam? Since I'm not writing any more, I have time to bake.

*sniff*

(I'll be okay, just give me a minute.)

Ms. Fettleston said...

Dear lovely young people,

Oh my goodness. Mr. Bo, I just looked at your profile. I do think that you should wear clothing, dear, or the young ladies won't be able to think of anything else, you know, dear.

Ms. Kahila, I would love you to bring your friend. His rabbit can sit on the balcony. I don't have any watercress sandwiches, but I have a few carrots he can nibble on, dear.

Dear Ms. Candy, what a lovely offer, dear. Of course you may stand in my kitchen and help me serve. However, you are a guest, dear, and I will not allow you to wash dishes. You can help me clear up after the party, though, if you like. I do get alittle stiff in the evening, and would appreciate the help, dear. Thank you.

Dear Ms. Christine H., please do come to my little tea party and relax and refresh yourself, dear. I have never seen an owl sprite, and I quite look forward to it. Crumpets and strawberry jam would be a delightful addition to the tea. They are a personal favorite of mine, dear.

Dear Mr. Nevin, thank you, dear. You are very welcome, but glitter does get into the cushions so, and can be quite difficult to clean up.

Oh, I am just thrilled you will all be attending my little tea.

Sincerely,

Ms. Fettleston
