Hey, you got an IV! That's cool. Be sure to blog about the night. If it admits two, maybe I should tag along...

Hi Araceli,
Such an event is a HIGH PRIORITY BLOGGABLE EVENT (HPBE)! An event like that, fully-blogged, every-nuance-teased-out, allows you to take a guiltless blog-break for a bit :)))))
Pity the IV didn't admit 2, but that's not to say I didn't eat for two :))))))
