I got my first RSVP call today for [livejournal.com profile] glowwormtu's bridal shower today, okay that is not exactly true I did get one earlier text message from the other Bridesmaid (who wasn't one at the time -- its a long story). And I do know the status of a handful of other people, but more on that later. I sent the invitations out at the end of March and set the RSVP by date to April 30th, so I guess everyone is waiting until the last minute. Thats fine.

Actually what I find really funny is that people don't seem to understand how to RSVP. I mean I supplied my phone number at the bottom of the invitation with the expectation that you would call me. The majority of the people that I know the status for now have called the bride who then passed that information on to me. She is not supposed to have to deal with this except for showing up -- and my phone number was right there!

Then at least one person has said (again to the bride not to me) that she didn't RSVP because she has people coming to town. Um, that is precisely a reason to RSVP. Presumably your guests mean that you can't come and I would like to know that so I can give the tea-house an accurate count of the who will be there. This is not in my backyard, I can't just mix you another drink. Everything has to be ordered and arranged in advance. So yeah. Small Rant, but mostly I'm just amused.

In other things which amuse me, I was a runner-up for the most welcoming claw award in our superlatives, which I find funny since I don't think I'm that welcoming (most logical on the other hand, I totally get, and I'm glad that the person I lost out to was the person I nominated). Not that I'm unwelcoming, but I rarely comment to new people posts, I don't leave special welcoming messages in my sorting posts, and I rarely speak in chat unless spoken to first. I'm at a loss. I was way more at a loss about the "biggest social butterfly award" nom but then no-one voted for me, so that put my world view back on the right track. I feel like someone was smoking the bad crack the day they nominated.
