    [QUOTE]Oh yeah, I want to flame the person who RSVP'ed to our wedding with a regret, but forgot to put their name on the RSVP. What a freakin idiot. Glad to know you're not coming, whoever you are!!
    Posted by NMac2010[/QUOTE]

    My mom had a great idea.. we placed a small number on the back of each RSVP card that corresponded to our guest list.  That way when you couldn't read the handwriting, left off their name, etc, we could just look at the number.  I thought it was silly at first, but as we got RSVP's in, it is great!

    About the mosque... I don't feel that this group does not have the right to build it next to ground zero, but I'd like to know what their intentions are.  If you truely had good intentions, and saw people getting this upset, then you would reevaluate your plan.  I feel that they are doing this to make a statement, and it is a slap in the face to all the families that lost loved ones that day.

    For all the money they are spending to build the mosque in this particular area, IMO there has to be a reason they are doing it. 

    And to have it dedicated on 9/11?  That's just a little too "convenient" for my taste.  I think it's being done in a very poor fashion and sure, if they want to build it, then build it.  Just know that when people protest, vandalize, or whatever they do to the building---KNOW that these people are basically getting down on their knees and begging for it.

    By them building this mosque where they are building it, dedicating it when they choose to dedicate it, they are only drawing a thicker line of separation between the American/Muslim people.

    I also flame the photography thread - but also because she was given the name of the photographer and the company and then she asks for the contact information.  Really?  Because google is so hard to navigate.

    I flame weight gain.  

    I've gained about 6 pounds since wedding.   I eat a pretty good diet and go to work out classes at the gym and really challenge myself at least 3 times per week, usually more. 
  • edited December 2011
    I've gained 10 pounds since the beginning of the year because I have become a major lazy bum.  I have to (read want) buy new clothes for the school year because even though I'm down weight from last year, I'm just not feeling great about myself and the clothes I wore then.

    Lacy,
    I went back and read the photography thread and laughed when I saw who the poster was.  She's the girl who got married by JoP so that she could live with her FI and her father would still pay for a "wedding" later on.  She insisted she was not married in her own eyes--even though they have a piece of paper--and wanted her pretty pretty princess day. 
  • edited December 2011
    I flame

    1) My cousin's FB status updates every few hours about how she misses her husband.  We get it you miss him, you are pregnant and lonely!  Oh but wait, the only reason you have a husband is because you got knocked up on the first date and now you are married!  Can you really fall in love with a complete stranger in less than 2 months and miss him so much that you have to bitch about it 4-5 times a day?  If its that big of a deal move to Cali and be with him!!!!

    2) Things Remembered for messing up our toasting flutes

    3) FI's job for stressing him out and making him in a bad mood

    4) Wedding dreams for waking me up everynight freaking out until I realize its just a dream and that the GM are not really wearing yellow tuxes!

    I still think we should have a READ THIS FIRST thread stickied at the top of the forum with links to threads where the most commonly asked questions(venue, photography, cakes) have already been discussed. Then if someone makes a stupid thread we can flame them. :-D (J/K....kinda)


    I love Project Runway! I thought Nicholas was the guy talking about the boobs. BTW who else thought that it was too early for someone not eliminated to break down in tears. Wtf are they gonna do at challenge 6 or so when the stuff is much more difficult.
  • edited December 2011
    I was upset because I watched Project Runway while I was getting ready this morning and it cut off right at the end!  My mom watches it and told me what happened, but I still haven't seen the very end!

    "The guy who dropped off a resume yesterday.  I really wish I could photocopy it and post it online, it was that pitiful.  This guy didn't capitalize his I's when addressing himself, in fact, the grammar all together was ridiculous.  He even said on there, qupte.  "i have lots other experience from working wit my step-dad.  he own lots of different businesses. But i wasnt on payroll cause he paid me cash under the table."



    Hahahahaha!! You had me laughing.

     1.  I flame the director who keeps calling me to say my daughter is sick. The first call enough I already made an appointment with her doctor and she does not have a fever, she is playing normally and eating well. What is the fuss about?
    2. I flame the director at the daycare again for lying to me that they were going to move my baby to the toddlers' class and not doing anything about it. She is ready to start learning and doing stuff with poeple her age and she is not an infant anymore.
    3. I flame everybody that has contributed to making my Friday a bad day!!!!!!!!!!!

    OOoo that feels better. I like this FLAME thing.

    It's going to be a lovely day!!!
  • edited December 2011

    I'll probably get something for this, but I don't think it's wrong to put a Mosque in ground zero! I think if a church wanted to do it no one would have an issue. The whole Muslim people didn't do what happened on 9/11 it was the actions of a few. There are radicals, terrorist, and crazies in every race and creed. I don't think you should punish all of them for it.

    Honestly, I don't think it will happen because most people can't make the distinction, but I do think it's wrong. My friends and I (being Indian and Christian) got threatened at school just cause we have brown skin. It's wrong people!

    Personal FFF - I'm pissed at a friend who decides to just have a reception for her wedding 2 years after the actual wedding just to get presents!!! Seriously I have no clue if I even want to go anymore.

    Freedom of religion is one of the founding tenets of this country. If people are going to be upset about a mosque, then there should also not be any churches, synagogues, crosses, or religious symbols of any kind on/near Ground Zero.

    And regarding the "separation between Americans and Muslims". There are millions of Americans who are Muslim. This is not the us vs. them situation that needs to be focused on.

    I don't like the search feature, I don't think it works very well. However, I will scroll through many pages looking for something if I know it has been discussed already.

    Also, I'm flaming the job market (yet again) for sucking.

    Flame 1.
    I flame girls who wont shut up about their weight....You force yourself to work out and eat healthy to lose weight for the wedding but then after the wedding day you go back to your old ways....I hate when girls say "I want to lose weight" NO you should want to be healthy....for your entire life not for the year while you are planning your wedding.


    Flame 2.
    I know everyone is entitled to their opinions but this really bothered me.....the whole giving away your dog thing. I could understand if I was like "I want and dog...oh now I dont" (for no reason) but it is a really hard decision for some people to make and it isnt fair for others to judge you based off the fact that you can no longer keep your dog, there are numerous reasons someone may need to give away their dog...no of which being anyone's business. It was a hard decision for me personally and it doesnt make it easier having people say negative things thus making me feel bad for it.....IDK if anyone cares but I just wanted to let ya'll know where someone else is coming from
  • edited December 2011
    I think people were mainly talking about those who give up their dogs when they don't have to.  Like "ooh he was cute as a puppy, but we don't want him anymore".  That's what makes me mad.  But I would rather them give them up then abuse them or keep them in a crate all the time or anything.

    I think its a different story with you because you obviously love your dog.  You wouldn't just give him up to a shelter or anything.

    I agree....but at the same time I think Im the only one who has posted ANYTHING dog related in the last week...so I did kind of feel as though they were directed at me....if not then ignore my over emotional (b/c I do feel really bad about getting rid of him and it has been a few months of thinking it over before coming to this conclusion...I did give it much thought) rant  <img src="http://cdn.cl9.vanillaforums.com/downloaded/ver1.0/content/scripts/tinymce/plugins/emotions/images/smiley-laughing.gif" border="0" alt="Laughing" title="Laughing" />

    I would think that your post just got people thinking about it. It was very apparent to me, at least, that you really didn't want to give up your dog but you were just doing what was best for your pet.

    Okay, first of all, when I see people flaming about people asking for help, I get confused.  I flame confusion! 

    So where are people to go for help with color palettes and venues, etc.
    Is there a way to search past posts for info? Without scrolling through the bagillions of posts on here? 

    I've been on here a few months. and I guess I still don't know this

    I need a degree in theknot.com  and I flame that as well!

    Personally - I don't mind giving help if I can - but you should be able to decide on a color palette yourself.  Venues - I understand - as well as even photography.  If you need a recommendation I understand - but take the time to look at the past posts before you ask - b/c it does become frustrating when we are answering the same questions.  Also, I don't mind giving my opinion - but why do you want my opinion on what colors you should use?  You don't even know me.

    ETA: Also, I understand if you have general wedding questions or just want to know what everyone else is doing - I knew very little about weddings when I started the process.

    I always thought FFF was where you are allowed to say things without being flamed, so I'm going to say something flameworthy :) I get maybe a little annoyed with people starting threads without looking up stuff first, but I also just blame it on ignorance. For instance I could totally imagine my mom thinking that wedding message boards are puppies and rainbows and immediately signing on and asking a question and being very giddy for answers to come... and she probably wouldn't even think to look stuff up first. Just because she wouldn't think of it as something that is annoying and she would just be ignorant to "etiquette" ... and knowing that she is one of the sweetest most gracious people I know makes me not flame those who do not follow MB etiquette. Talk about a slap in the face and possibly ruining someone's excitement to come on and check a thread for posts just to see a comment like, "Google is your friend" or "Use the search tool next time."
    Disclaimer: Please excuse the above comment. I'm probably freaking out because there is less than one month to go. Thank you.
