LOL! I knew I could count on you all for some good guest-bashing . I feel better now that I'm cooking - really looking forward to tonight, I have some great girlfriends coming who I know will have me ROTFLMAO all night - so that will more than make up for my one bad guest

Thanks for cheering me up & making me laugh :)

R.S.V.P. is a waste of time nowadays - no one does it. Just have a great time and pretend she's not there.

Hope you're having a great night, Paint! There's always at least one in the crowd...now you know her true colors. Don't give her a second thought!
Practice random acts of kindness.

Assume that when she has a party she heads for the nearest deli for take-out and doesn't care if there is enough for everyone.

Also assume there are always dust-bunnies big enough to chase a cat all over her home and she only uses a dust cloth around the decorations on her table.

In addition assume that she thinks a great deal more of her own company than she has any reason to!

And have a great time! Invite me and I'll RSVP in writing!

Well, the party was great! Lots of wine & good food & laughter. Even my 'bad' guest was fun - she ended up being the one who kept clearing away for me & rinsing things off in the kitchen - maybe trying to make up for her awful answerphone message?

I suprised myself and amazed my guests when I found out that one guest was allergic to mustard (which was in the chicken dish I'd prepared), Luckily I had a spare chicken breast in the fridge, so I just grabbed a pan, seared it, threw in some red wine, garlic, french herbs, butter and cream to make a quick pan sauce and voila! she had her own special chicken to eat....My guests just stood around amazed that I could invent something so quickly without having to use a recipe book LOL!

My guests left at about 1.30am, and I WAS going to leave all the clearing up until this morning....but as I lay in bed I heard my two Great Danes sneaking downstairs, presumably to raid the plates of left-over food. I was so scared that they would break my best china & crystal that I had to get up again and go and make sure everything was at least rinsed off and stacked safely....much to my dogs disappointment! I ended getting to bed around 2.30am, so I'm off to have a nice afternoon nap right now :)

So glad your party turned out so nice. Maybe the lady is on the shy side with people she doesn't know? I know that when I am at a party, I am one of those that normally start helping clean up because I am not much of a conversationalist. I typically hide in the kitchen. Is easy to chat on a forum, nobody is staring back at you. :)
