Part of me would be tempted to find out where the reception is, and crash, acting as if you simply had NO idea that anyone could invite someone to a wedding and not a reception.
Or, yu COULD send her a copy of Miss Manners' Guide to Not Being a Total Fucking Boor, with appropriate passages bookmarked. (Actually, some bookstores have these lovely little copper clips that point to an exact LINE, without marrng the pages as paperclips do.)
I like the second idea very much [g].
BLOODY GREAT ICON!!! Melissa and I were talking about Much Ado just last night. I'm thinking that movie might be part of the "Shakespear Crash Course" the lass keeps intimating before the summer Shakespear rounds.
Oh, as for the sandy-one... Bah. Send her something old to you, new to her, that's blue. She obviously already has something "borrowed." :-P
Perhaps we can see it on the Monster Penis System
? (Second last photo.)
Mmmm...Shakespeare done really big....aaaah.
We have it on DVD now....
Jeff and Keira have a few DVDs...Richard III (Ian McKellen) and Henry V (Branagh--acutally we've borrowed that and haven't managed to return it) and a few others. We have the Midsummer with Kevin Kline and Rupert Everett. I can track down a bunch of other good things.
Our personal DVD collection is pretty slim, actually. This is sad.
Joan and Brent have a batch, too. We can coordinate something at some point this summer.
Oooh... I have heard tell of this monstrosity, but I had not till now laid eyes on it...
Yeeeeeeesh, methinks Shakespear (and to cross-reference another LJ thread, Buffy) might VERY WELL need to be watch at de Casa o' de Ferrettish Peoples.
Yeah, we don't have problems persuading people to come to our house to watch movies these days....
It's a marvelous movie and tremendous fun. I'm up for it.
I'm sending her nothing. Invite went in the trash.
Hmm... I dunno... I kept trying to think of something that was as cool, honest, and demented a wedding gift as Randy Milhollands "Quart of Whiskey and a coat hanger" were as a shower gift... Maybe a booklet of divorce paperwork? Or a clipping of a "How to know if your man is cheating" article?
Now that's jes' mean-spirited.
Not that I don't like it... [g]
Actually, my dearest friend in the world gave his sister (keep in mind that it WAS her third marriage and she AND the new husband had cheated on their previous spouses, and not just with each other) "How to Make Love to the Same Person for the Rest of Your Life."
I stand by my original "Miss Manners" suggestion, although a card (preferably a 99c special) as "payment" for the reception is kind of appealing. You just know she's going to spend way too much.
Yes, I agree you should crash the party. Get a simple card as a gift and crash the reception. Do it! Do it!
That would require more effort than I am willing to put into it. I simply threw the invite away - I feel no obligation to provide anything.
Yeah. People like you and me are too lazy to tell people when they're being rude. ;}
It's the actually having to go out of my way and make an effort, using up my personal free time. I simply don't care enough to be botherred.
Here, we have a more elaborated version of the expression. I'm sure you can figure out what it is.
I'm surprised you've never heard of 'sand in her vagina.' Really surprised.
