Embrace The Venus

I don't want to sound like a commercial or anything, but I believe in giving credit where credit is due. Ladies, I have found the goddess of all razors! It is Gillette's Venus Embrace and you must run out right now and purchase it. I got it after reading about it in a magazine. An editor who had tried it out claimed that she didn't have to shave her legs for three days after using it. That right there had me jetting off to Target in search of it. I ended up getting the promotional package Target was featuring - it came with lotion, shaving cream, razor, replacement blade and a pod like thing to house it in the shower. All for a little over $9. While the replacement blades do seem a little pricey, I will attest that I think it will be worth every penny. My legs are sparkling with smoothness in the sunshine!!

RSVP Please....

Respondez s'il vous plait translated in English is "Reply, if you please." I've always understood it to be customary to reply to an RSVP request whether you are confirming or declining an invite. It simply means that the invited guest must tell the host whether or not they plan to attend the party. It doesn't mean to respond only if you're coming, and it doesn't mean to respond only if you're not coming - it would say "regrets only" for that. It means the host needs a definite head count for the planned event, and it needs to be by the date specified on the invitation!
So, what do I do with these 60+ family members who have not done this simple task a week after the specified date?? Planning a family reunion that involves 96 people is no small task, and this is the part that I thought would be the easiest! What else is in store?
