They’ll be lining up for my hospitality

Dear Miss Britt,

I have been reading your blog for over a year. Now that we both live in the same sunshine state, we should get together. I’m sure we’d have lots of fun!




Dear Allyson,

This sounds like a great idea! I really enjoy meeting new bloggers.

Are you available the last weekend in February?

If so, you should drive two and a half hours to hang out at my house!

We can have drinks.


And hang out. And just… relax.



You can even meet the Husband.


We’d love to have you over.

Hope to see you soon!


Miss Britt

P.S. Anyone else got a craving to meet me? Yeah… I didn’t think so.

    I’ll loan you my evil stepmonster of the year trophy Britt. The partner and I taught his daughter at 13yrs old to be our bartender. :martini:

    Chris’s last blog post..Some of you need to pay your bills!

  5. Hilly says:

    I think I just peed a little at all of these pictures. My faves are definitely number one and number three.

    But I’d still come hang out, even if my fat ass had to paint, cause I’m just that into you.

    Hilly’s last blog post..Snackie Mafia: The Jig Is Up!

  6. Wow. Guests get to meet you and do DIY?
    My God! That’s Brilliant, when can I come

  7. Kristin says:

    I have been in this girl’s shoes. Oh wait, I knew you very well, and I offered! But you made a guest help you paint!? WTH!? ;)

    Kristin’s last blog post..On Second Thought…

  8. FyreGoddess says:

    Maybe I’m strange, but I don’t see this as odd. I’ve often been on both sides of this kind of situation. That said, I and all my friends are the type of people who can’t just sit around and not do anything (especially if there are things that need doing). Shoot, I even volunteer for my primary vacation every year.

    FyreGoddess’s last blog post..Fuck empathy

  9. Nobody™ says:

    We really should meet at my place, I have a couple rooms that need painted. If I’m not home you can go ahead and start without me. No, really, I won’t mind.

    Nobody™’s last blog post..WTF – Boy beheaded by uncle in supermarket

  10. Maman says:

    You can get bloggers to come to your house and work? Please reveal to me this secret! I will host blogger parties all the time… I have every so many chores around here! :clap:

    Maman’s last blog post..what I contend with

  11. You put her TO WORK? Reminds me of my mother. If anyone spent the night on Friday night, they had to do my chores with me on Saturday morning.

    What kind of shit is that????

  12. Miss Britt says:

    Fantastagirl: heh, pussy!

    avitable: yeah?

    bek: huh.

    Chris: OK we haven’t gone that far yet. LOL

    Hilly: awesome. So, when can I put you down for a “visit”?

    FreelanceCynic: my door is always open to free labor.

    Kristin: listen, I’ve got shit to DO!

    FyreGoddess: I like the way you think.

    What are you doing in June?

    Nobody™: yes but you have snow. We’ll have to wait until that shit melts.

    Maman: it’s a gift.

  13. Miss Britt says:

    Abusrdist: she had FUN! Can’t you tell she’s having fun? :angel:

  14. debkitty says:

    She must really want to be your friend to help you paint on her first time meeting you….

    I like ya but not enough to do manual labor for you!

    debkitty’s last blog post..SIL from Hell!

  15. DutchBitch says:

    Hell Yeah, just say when!

    I mean, the Hubby IS doing all the work, right?

    LOVE the first picture… :lmao:

  17. Zanthera says:

    Painting someone else’s house is so much better. Mistakes don’t bother me so much :peace:

    Zanthera’s last blog post..It works now

  18. bluepaintred says:

    heh. Three nights ago I tool Stuperman (3) with me to a convenience store – I needed candy – and chocolate.

    one wall in the store is all juice and pop in coolers and he said – in that loud annoying voice kids get when parents don’t want them heard – LOOK MOMMY! ALCOHOL!!

    He was pretty excited, but the very conservative, religious clerk behind her high and mighty now I will lecture you for eight minutes counter, was not.

    In other words, I’ll be glad to get that Mom of the year award int he mail to you post haste!

  19. Finn says:

    At least the child is not the one mixing the drinks. I don’t allow people to take photos of mine when he’s on bartenting duty.

    Finn’s last blog post..I Think It’s Time Again

  20. sizzle says:

    That is a brilliant idea- use the blog for painting help. Why didn’t I think of that! ;)

    Hey, you provided booze. That’s excellent hostessing.

    sizzle’s last blog post..Self? Where have you gone?

  21. Laura says:

    The next time I’m in Florida I will TOTALLY help paint your vodka. Erm, help drink your walls. Uh, yeah. How do you feel about chartreuse? And Gray Goose? (Oooh, looky! Rhymey!)

    Laura’s last blog post..Kickin’ it Old School

  22. I would love to come over. Next time I am in Florida I am soooo gonna crash at your house!!!

  23. Poppy says:

    I saw Avi’s twitter about watching you and Allyson paint last weekend and I started laughing.

    Allyson looks just like Ripley’s groomer, “Auntie Joanne”! Wow! (That’s a good thing.)

  24. Poppy says:

    PS – I’ll be back the end of April, but I hate painting. Got any other household chores you want me to help with? :D

  25. Fogspinner says:

    I can do some mean drywall mudding. So, you know, if you decide to knock a hole in a wall or add one… you just call me. If you can get me over my intense fear of flying, or want to take a reallllly long road trip, I’ll come over for DIY.

  26. Miss Britt says:

    debkitty: OK fine. But then you have to mix the drinks.

    DutchBitch: of course!

    Savy: oh good!

    Zanthera: yeah, that’s true. That’s why I do the trim.

    bluepaintred: LOL, I will clear a spot for it!

    Finn: I wouldn’t trust my kids enough to drink something they’d mixed for me. They seem a little shifty if you ask me…

    sizzle: you are welcome to steal the idea!

    Laura: Gray Goose will do. :D

    themuttprincess: absolutely! You my door is always open to you.

    Poppy: so THAT is what he was doing while sitting his lazy ass on the couch.

    Poppy: how are you at gardening?

  27. Miss Britt says:

    Fogspinner: I hope to never, ever have to deal with mudding again after the last two houses!

  28. Marissa says:

    You can keep your clothes on while painting? Really?

    My friends lied to me, we always did our painting in our undies. We had the drinks in lidded cups, no one likes gin with paint mixed in.

  29. Trishk says:

    Isn’t digging for a pool the next thing on your list???

    Why does it look like you are spooning up paint in the 3rd photo? Were you adding it to your alcohol?

    Trishk’s last blog post..What I Want

  30. Lynda says:

    Maybe you guys can come to Indiana to help me paint.

    :lmao: See why I am NOT in a hurry to come visit?

    I still have lots of rooms to paint here.

    Amy’s last blog post..In Which I Cop To Being A Dork

  32. Kimberly says:

    I’m still wondering what keep hinting at here. Is there supposed to be something wrong with any of this?

    Good thing – when she gets a little taller, she can pour them for you herself.

    Kimberly’s last blog post..Don’t Cry

  33. nnniiiiccceee. Yay. That looks like lots of fun.


    I meant the smoking….

  34. Poppy says:

    I almost started crying. I am an incredible gardener, with no gardens anymore. Ugh. I might still cry.

  35. hellohahanarf says:

    i love painting. OTHER people’s places. everyone knows if there is a painting project that they can count on me to assist.

    you are welcome to put me to work when i visit, but i insist on a couch or bed to pass out in later (because when work is done there will be many, many alcoholic drinks & vats of guac consumed, plus i will be exhausted from all the work i did for you).

    you will have company for quite some time. let me know when your schedule frees up. i’ll come work with ya! (work for you is a vacation for me, bay-bee)

  36. stephanie says:

    For the record, your kitchen is amazing. I looooove it.

    Well, I WANTED to meet you, but you didn’t show up. Apparently, you were too busy smoking and drinking.

    Karl’s last blog post..Blogging Gods Unite

  41. Miss Britt says:

    Marissa: but then what did you wipe the spilled paint off on??

    Trishk: I think I was just using a brush. LOL And yeah, sigh, the pool hole is the next task.

    How are you with a shovel?

    Lynda: Indiana?

    Amy: clearly you are a sucky friend.

    Kimberly: I like the way you think. What are you doing mid April?

    claudia hall christian: smoking is always fun.

    Poppy: awww, I’m sorry Popster!

    hellohahanarf: OMG I would die to have you come visit! And I have beds!

    Shelli: come on down chickie pie.

    stephanie: really?? :dunno: Thank you!

    Melizzard: the last two years? Um.. painting a house in Iowa.

    themuttprincess: :hug:

    Coal Miner’s Granddaughter: Le Chateau de Miss Britt has vacancies beginning April 9th. When would you like me to book you?

    Karl: I know. I suck. :cry:

  43. Kyra Sutra says:

    I’d drink, chain smoke and help you paint any day just as soon as we move back to Florida. But I would also probably insist we pick up a couple of hookers to join us.

  44. Selma says:

    You are an absolute character. I am excellent with a roller and am very good at prep work (years of detention at Catholic school where the nuns made me paint bedrooms in the convent as punishment.) Sadly, however, I am booked out for the next 6 months. Hahaha.

  46. B says:

    Sounds like my Uncle! When he bought a new house he invited us all up for a “relaxing weekend.” What he really meant was “come up and help me paint and hang dry wall!!”


    B’s last blog post..Oh Lookie!

  47. I’ll come to the “Dig A Pool” Party.
    Speaking of Party…are we having a Big Ass Orlando Bash when Bossy is in town?
    Must. Meet. Bossy.

    Little Miss Sunshine State’s last blog post..The “B” list

  48. Jesus. 48 responses. You’re a rock star!

    Remember me! Remember me!

    I don’t suppose West Palm Beach is anywhere near you? I’ll be there in April with Clan Championable! We could play golf, at which I SUCK.

    Rich | Championable’s last blog post..Fear of commitment.

  49. At least you got them over once. I tried to round up a painting posse for my new digs, and was denied. LOL

    Not Afraid To Use It’s last blog post..WWYD?

  50. Miss Britt says:

    Maggie: awww, thanks.

    Kyra Sutra: that’s cool. They can do the trim.

    Selma: that doesn’t surprise me. I imagine you are quite in demand.

    turnbaby: see how awesome you are?

    B: that sounds like my kind of guy!

    Little Miss Sunshine State: yep! End of March. (Bossy, not the pool, LOL)

    Rich: that is quite a ways south of us… wayyy wayyy south. You will love it though, I did.

    But oh boy, no golf. I tried that once and bawled like a baby.

    Not Afraid To Use It: did you offer booze? I think that’s an important element.

  51. Allyson says:

    Sorry I didn’t get the chance to comment here. I did have fun, and best of all… I lost 2 pounds at that party!
