Join NOW-The Mermaid’s Cocktail Party!


I am here to tell you now–I am neither a Democrat or a Republican.

I am a member of THE COCKTAIL PARTY.

This fall, I am going to dread all the right and left-wing postings going on. BC is right in there as well, spouting off on his über conservative/libertarian ideas. I am pretty much an independent and ignore such drivel. It’s how we have stayed married for 24 years.

As you may have guessed, dear readers, I am all over the place. Can’t pick a side. So when I go into the voting booth in November it will be a  pleasure to pick WHOEVER THE FUCK I want to. And not tell anyone. It’s personal, dammit.

Being a member of The Cocktail Party has its perks.

  • Make sure some kind of cocktail is in your hand by 6 pm. It can be a virgin cocktail but this does not include full membership perks.
  • Members of the cocktail party have to have a perk card at their cocktail store (mine’s a 10% discount BOOM!)
  • Members of the Cocktail Party can NOT post on any social media about the current election unless it involves said candidates with a cocktail in their hands (good luck with that)
  • Members of the Cocktail Party will pledge to have at least 1 cocktail a night.
  • Members of the CP can take Sundays off if and only if they have been to a church of some sort that morning. Or puked in the bathroom all night.
  • Members of the CP must have locks on their cocktail cabinets for both toddlers and teens.
  • Members of the CP have to know how to tap a keg with one hand with a cigarette or beer in the other in under 30 seconds.  There will be a test.
  • Members of the CP must enjoy reality TV.  That does not include political reality TV.  Extra perks for membership in the Honey Boo Boo fan club.
  • Members of the CP must drink every time Mitt Romney pimps out his wife on camera.
  • Members of the CP must drink every time Michelle Obama wears a sleeveless shirt or dress on camera.
  • Members of the CP must drink every time VP Joe Biden mentions chains.
  • Members of the CP must drink every time Paul Ryan mentions his abs.
  • Members of the CP must drink every time Hilary Clinton wears a headband on camera.
  • Members must drink every time NJ Governor Christie eats a pizza.  A whole one.
  • Members must drink every time Shepherd Smith on Fox News wears makeup.
  • Members must drink every time a Republican has sex in the missionary position.
  • Members must drink every time a Democrat maxes out their credit card.

By now, you should be feeling pretty warm and fuzzy inside.  Welcome to The Mermaid’s Cocktail Party.

    Does it come with a complimentary stay at Betty’s Place after November 7th?

  2. But Dear Leader, how will my kids mix the drinks if I keep the booze locked up? I guess I should just give them the key like I do for the car. And I’m guessing you mean 6 p.m. EST. Crap — that’s 4 my time. Must hurry to pick up DD from second grade carpool line so she and her brother can help me make the deadline.

    SIgn me up — 10 years of bartending makes me an expert on the keg tapping…bring on the test!

  6. Kim says:

    I’m in!!!

  7. I am hysterically laughing. Love this so much 🙂

  8. Kim says:

    I hereby solemnly swear to uphold every one of the Cocktail Party rules, except for one, and this I am truly sorry, I don’t do reality shows, ESPECIALLY Honey Boo Boo. The commercials alone make me angry,very angry. I do promise however to drink something MADE with honey; a large hot lemonade comes to mind.

    Can I enter with Kim? I can’t do reality but I can do other truly cheesy and southern things. Hell, I promise to belt out the southern girl’s mating call each and every time I take a sip (hey, y’all, ah think ah’m drrruunnkkkk!). I also reserve the right to mutter derogative remarks about Michelle Obama’s hair. I can’t help it. Surely that can’t be taking sides? It’s 7:52 am and I am putting Southern Comfort in my coffee. That counts, right?

  10. Love, love, love your blog! But seriously, cocktail hour doesn’t start until 6pm??? I’m way ahead of that–perhaps because I am a gold card carrying CP member! And you are damn right–50 is the new 30. Thanks for sharing such a great post with a fellow blogger on the other side of the hill! Following you now via email subscription under the name marciakesterdoyle!

  11. I hereby promise, swear, cross my eyes and toes and hope to die that I will abide by the laws of the CP. I will even wear a cocktail dress….as soon as I buy one…

  12. Sorry kid your mom doesn't play well with others says:

    I love this!!! I hope my liver doesn’t fail before the end of the election…

  13. […] have started a new Political Party and ask you to join. I just can’t take a side right now and I really think we need to go back […]
