Since the beginning of September,  I have knitted 3 shawls, 2 mufflers, 6 hats, 3 pair of fingerless gloves.

The only person I have left to do for is My Guy. He will be getting a membership that he mentioned but did not specifically request. Also new undies as his are becoming a bit worn. And probably a gc to his favorite cigar shop.
I have found a lot of friends through online forums and will often notice when someone isn't around anymore. It depends on how you have engaged with them over the course of your time as members of the board.

I have had people recognize me from previous forums since I've been heavily into fan bases for over ad decade. So it doesn't bother me and actually is nice when people have memories of me and reach out.

In this case, it's more of a passing through. Kind of like when you go to the same grocery store all the time and enjoy a specific clerk. You notice they've moved on one day and you're bummed out but it's not necessarily appropriate to ask where they've gone.
My bank's apparently changed things without warning again - the account type I have no longer has the monthly maintenance fee waived, and I received absolutely no correspondence from them that suggested this was going to happen. >:( It's not going to break me, but really? Shouldn't people at least get some warning?

I hope that one is a joke, but if not, I would expect a lot of "no, just Liz" and possibly a name change on her eighteenth birthday. Especially if the hypothetical child ever found that post: that takes it from "We just like the name Dweezil" (and the young Mr. Zappa going into court to legally change his name to Dweezil), into "my parents hate me. They even gave me a stupid dad joke for a name."

You were fine. It's not like you were talking about a nearby party or concert with all your mutual friends but she was not invited by the organizer. That would be rude and hurtful.

People talk about vacations or visiting friends/family all the time. That's just talking about life; not excluding anyone.

In terms of you talking about it, you were actually talking about a gift that your friend has offered you.  For Jenny to ask to come along is the equivalent of her saying, "Oh, your friend made you a fabulous hand knitted sweater?  Can she make me one also?"

Sadly there are people who do that.
Sometimes they act as if your spending hours and hours working on something is no big deal.

I'd say I'm shocked, but I had my cousin try to invite himself along to a cruise I was going on. He didn't much like it when I told him that wouldn't be possible, but he was free to book a room on his own if he wished to come.  I would have loved to see him; however, you can't just change guest on an already booked cruise, nor can you add an additional person to the room if the room has a maximum of 2 adults. Not to mention, he didn't have any money or a passport.

I also had not one, but two people get mad at me for not inviting them to another friend's birthday party last month. 1. I was not the organizer. 2. The GOH didn't want them there. I just flat told them I wasn't the one who organized the party and I didn't have any control over the guests list. Geez.

It is a rare moment when I am so shocked by the unmitigated gall shown by a person that I am entirely without words to express myself appropriately, or even inappropriately.  This is one of those times.

Just saw an abbreviation in a (now locked) thread that I've never seen before, and I thought I'd seen everything:


Apparently it is derogatory to the Husband.

Can someone tell me what it means without violating any terms on this site? I'm not trying to open a bag of worms but I cannot find out what this means. Thanks in advance!

You are correct. Capitalizing the "H" in "Duh" is a play on words to point out the Husband involved is clueless or does things that deserves a "duh" for some of his actions.
