    So tell me, do you think that says "Annoyed"  or "annoying"?  Because it still doesn't say either one of those words.

    Keep trying, though.  It's fun to watch you make yourself into a fool repeatedly.

    And betrothed, I'm disgusted with most of the comments that you have posted. I don't think I've ever read such judgmental comments in my life. I'm so lucky that the girls I speak to on theknot are nothing like you...I would've never come on here for ADVICE if I would've encountered a big a bitch as you. I genuinely feel awful for your children or your future children, and I think it would be irresponsible of YOU not to invest in their future therapy sessions starting now. Because trust me when I tell you honey, they're gonna need it. ~jcaruncho2010

  • but it's still not the definition.  It's explaining the etymology as in where the word came from

  • Cadence - isn't that a misspelling of Candace?  I could have sworn I saw it as a baby name on the bump somewhere...

  • I'm a super hero.  My life is very similar to that of Wonderwoman. If you want to imagine it, open a comic book.  I pulled a bunch of people from a burning building this morning, saving dozens of lives.  When's the last time you saved a life?

  • My life is awesome. Just ask my best friends, Blanche, Rose, Dorothy and Sophia. They are some crazy gals. We tear up the Miami scene together on the regular. Don't hate.
  • As a serious response to your question, I don't find it rude as I'm stuck in a similar predicament. It's not that I'm worried about it, but that the Country Club where our reception is does not allow jeans, period. So I'm also stuck in how to include that in our invitations without sounding rude. It's a very fine line and I wish you the best of luck!

    Country Clubs are a different story.  You can let guests know that there is a minimal dress code.

  • Sounds like you are trying really hard for a self-fulfilling prophecy, but its not working.. sorry. You aren't deceiving us at all.

    In modern usage, sophism, sophist, and sophistry are derogatory terms, due to the influence of many past philosophers.

    A sophism is taken as a specious argument used for deceiving someone. It might be crafted to seem logical while actually being wrong, or it might use difficult words and complicated sentences to intimidate the audience into agreeing, or it might appeal to the audience's prejudices and emotions rather than logic, i.e. raising doubts towards the one asserting, rather than his assertion. The goal of a sophism is often to make the audience believe the writer or speaker to be smarter than he or she actually is, e.g., accusing another of sophistry for using persuasion techniques.

    A sophist is a user of sophisms, i.e., an insincere person trying to confuse or deceive people. Sophists will try to persuade the audience while paying little attention to whether their argument is logical and factual.

    Sophistry means making heavy use of sophisms. The word can be applied to a particular text or speech riddled with sophisms.

  • edited March 2010
    Who is Karma? And why is she going to hell?
  • If you are that worried about what the hell people are going to wear, just make it black tie.  I mean really.  I have been to weddings where people came in jeans and did they look stupid?  Yes.  Was it the end of the world? No.

    As for the party crashers, just clearly state on the invitation who is invited.  On your response cards put "We have reserved __ number of seats for you" or something along those lines (the invitation board can help better on the wording).  If people show up who were not invited, its their problem.  I wouldn't be so worried about it in the grand scheme of things.  You are going to be so busy enjoying your day that I hope you wouldn't just focus on the negative stuff.

  • Well, black tie is pretty involved. It requires much more than just the outfits.

    True, I just meant that it would be the only way to really "control"(yuck) what people are going to wear.
