How do you know when it's real?

OMG!! I'm posting two days in a row! That's like a record for me or something lol. Today's post in brought to you from a baby shower invite. Yes, that's right. A baby shower invite.

I received this invite a few weeks ago. It was sent to me by two friends who are hosting it for another friend of ours. I cannot attend the shower because of a prior commitment (LA RenFest!!). I had wanted to knit them a baby blanket but now really don't want to. I have tried to keep in touch with friends I had in college. I was (not sure if I still am) part of Sigma Alpha Iota in college. It's the International Music for Women. I am super happy I did it. I made amazing friends through it. I just don't understand how someone can say that they haven't seen me in a long time and say we should get together for coffee but never make any plans. People that were once important in my life, really aren't anymore. Why invite me to a baby shower if you don't keep in touch with me and have no intention to? I'm just confused by this whole thing.

Meh, don't bother. If someone isn't keeping in touch with you and then wants you to come to a gathering where you're expected to bring gifts... it's a bad idea.

i agree with Jamie.
Meh, don't bother.

Well, now I feel awful. I would LOVE to get together with you sometime. Email/text/anything. let me know your schedule and you will have a coffee date!!

As for the baby shower. I wouldn't go. Actually I haven't gone to a few of them (bridal or baby) for people that we knew in college. I don't see the point. I dont' talk to them and they don't talk to me. We say hi in passing if we see each other out, but that's it.

Oh, for SAI I tried to join the Alumnea but...alas I'm too busy for all of that. I could get you the email to Fran if you want to participate more with them.
