[ - ] 35 murders in Baltimore in May. Insane. Last year the city averaged 17.5 per month. It hasn't seen 35 in a single month since 1999. How do Democrats defend this? This is a city they run and have run for 50 solid years. 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] I like the period drama element/setting to Mad Men and the plot is okay, but I never really liked any of the characters except Sally. Joan and Megan were tolerable. But I found Don and Peggy highly annoying. And the dialogue seemed overly scripted. So many of the characters were just boring businessmen doing boring business deals. I kept waiting for it to get good, and it just never happened. Anyone else feel this way? I wonder if the show would be more entertaining for those who work in advertising or in the corporate world in general. Those who liked Mad Men, what did you like about it aside from the vintage aspect of it and the retro setting? I liked seeing people in a different era and seeing the race relations and gender relations under a different lens, but the characters just never did it for me. What did you like about them if you liked them? 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] Rude or not? I have only received 15 RSVPs to DC's birthday party. 11 of those are friends his age (6-7yo) and 4 are toddlers (siblings). I found some science/geode kits on major sale at Michaels and purchased 11 as party favors for the older kids and I'm making simple good bags (annie's cracker, crayons, stickers) for the toddler siblings. I didn't purchase more than 11 because a) they are $6 each and I'd like to keep costs low - the geode kits are non-returnable. Is it rude to offer a simple goody bag to the kids who show who didn't RSVP? I'm planning to put the geode kits on the tables with the kids names attached with a balloon. If I see a kid who didn't RSVP, I'll hand him a goody bag. Thoughts? 40 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

you are doing the reasonable thing. only an unreasonable parent would be upset with you if their kid didn't get a geode. I don't full understand why toddler siblings would go to a party for 7+ yos, but I only have one child so I don't judge. [ Reply | More ]

You should have purchased more and if they were left over you could in luxe them in gifts to others. But, you are pissed and want to make a statement. [ Reply | More ]

Yes, but we do not have parent information on the class list. [ Reply | More ]

Nothing. It's pointless, but our school has privacy issues. If we want to exchange birthday invites, they must go to the teacher, who disperses them to the students. [ Reply | More ]

So send out a last call to the ones who have not rsvp'd. Will make them look bad in teachers eyes :) [ Reply | More ]

I don't believe that is allowed. If I send out cards to people, they must go to everyone in the class. No private communications allowed and I believe that counts as private communication. [ Reply | More ]

Teacher knows you already invited entire class (unless she is an idiot). Do you do pick up and/or drop off? [ Reply | More ]

Schools with "privacy" issues are often exclusive. Exclusive schools are often expensive. You are complaint about 6.00 [ Reply | More ]

Because you sound cheap worrying about an extra $30-40 [ Reply | More ]

Either buy more and use the extras in future gifts for birthdays/Christmas, or put everything in similar bags so it's not so obvious. [ Reply | More ]

Ok, I'll buy them for future gifts. [ Reply | More ]

Ok. You planned a party - knew the number of invites and chose a goody bag gift but are now trying to save? Why didn't you budget to start? What would have happened if all rsvp'd yes? Would you have chosen a cheaper gift?? This makes very little sense. Don't throw a party you can't afford. A host always has more than anticipated need. [ Reply | More ]

I don't have an issue buying 30 geode kits if 30 kids are coming. The problem is that I live in a Manhattan apartment and don't have closets of space to keep these cereal-box sized geode kits if people do not show. I also do not want to spend another $100 on favors if not everyone shows. Since I'm making goody bags for the toddlers, I figured that I would just make extras for the kids who didn't RSVP.

Just spend $36 to buy 6 more, worse case you can donate them after the party. [ Reply | More ]

Those 4 year olds are going to be really upset their older sibling got the cool geodes and they only get snacks. You may not care or think they are old enough to get one but they will care and they will let their parents know about it. Why cause sibling drama? I would have chosen something cheaper so everyone can get the same. [ Reply | More ]

this is really frigging rude to the poor kids coming to the party. not their fault their parents are bad at RSVP'ing. Perhaps you have a "shaming" googie bag for the parents too? Like a sack of coal or something?! [ Reply | More ]
