My friend Dawna wants this for her bridal shower next month. She has already asked her good friend to stand up from her chair and start clapping the second Dawna enters the restaurant. It was supposed to be a surprise, but she's too much of a control freak.
She also wanted a dress code, with everyone wearing light blue or dark orange (her colors). She wanted this printed on the invitation, but thankfully we talked her out of it.
Is the clapping going too far? She has also vowed to ask for the receipts on anything that isn't from her registry lists. At the shower.
The clapping is very silly indeed, but why the fuck not. It's ten seconds out of your life, to make a friend happy.
But if you don't have a light blue or orange outfit, buying a new outfit for someone's shower IS too much to ask.
Miss Fucking Manners
Are you lost, OP? If not, then get lost.
Liza! had entrance applause as she walked down the aisle at her wedding to David......but look how that turned out.
I pray, pointlessly I recognize, this is an EST. But such is my desperation to believe such a person does not exist.

Do you REALLY believe someone would post something like this maintaining such a tone of naive curiosity (rather than of disgusted outrage) if it really had happened?
Some of you, I swear to God, I could swindle out of a fortune if I had you right in front of me. You are the biggest bunch of pigeons in the universe.
Hi. This is Dawna. Please put $3000 dollars in unmarked bills in a plain manila envelope under the big rock at the corner of Main and Cedar Street if you want to see Miss Sissy Boodles alive ever again.
Will the shower receipts say, "Obnoxious Fat Chick?"
Actually pretty standard to applaud when the guest of honor walks into a gathering. You must not get invited to many places or events, OP.
Of course it is, R8, but it's spontaneous. No one but crude trailer trash would require it ahead of time.
OP may well be a troll -- I ADORE 'Dawna,' but come on now -- but there are many, many young women exactly like this out there.
Dawna sounds insufferable. Does she have any redeeming qualities, OP? From what you've written, I'd suggest punch & delete.
Is Dawna a lesbian, OP? If so, we shall advise you as to how to deal with her.
If not, you may want to post this at iVillage. This is a GAY site. For gay people.
Excuse me, Miss, I have problems of my own
What, exactly, did she do to merit a standing ovation besides saying "yes" at the appropriate time? Ridiculous. Let us know when she breaks an Olympic record or cures cancer.
We suggest as an alternative that the shower be changed to a backyard potluck.
What makes a bridezilla like this? Low self esteem, narcissism, attention whoredom? I hate weddings but they can be pleasant events if the bride is civilized. My sister was married in a small, simple ceremony. She asked her bridesmaids to wear their favorite black dress and gifts were optional. If people wanted to give a gift, she suggested several charities to which to donate.
Let her have what she wants. It won't kill ya will it?
If my mother had named me Dawna, she would have learned what it felt like to be murdered.
Does she shave her pussy?
Dark orange is nobody's color. Either Dawna. has no taste or this is an EST
[quote] Either Dawna. has no taste or this is an EST
No it's typical bridezilla. By making them look as ridiculous as posible she assures her place as the most beautiful girl of the day.

Wow, trollerina, you've seriously been on a tear this weekend. I congratulate you for your careful selection of just the right DLer buttons to get a response (bridezilla / entitled frau is an evergreen classic), but this time you lost me at "Dawna," a name exactly no female actually possesses.
You should ask her to fill a glass up with breastmilk. Only then will she get a standing ovation.
Shades of Bee and Bear.
I always get a standing ovation whenever I fuck Gabourey "Precious" Sidibe in her gelatinous asshole and nurse on her volcanic nipples. In public places. While she reaches behind me and fingers my asshole just the way I like. People everywhere applaud.
Try harder OP.
Enough, R27. Boring, stupid, lame and WAY overdone.
Volcanic nipples did make me giggle but I concor with r29.
Aww, R29, sorry, I know your delicate sensibilities are mortified by the concept of hetero fucking. But it doesn't change the fact that my cock looks soooo cute wrapped in Gabby's fat rolls; it's just like a hot dog in a bun and twice as tasty.
And I suspect that you're jealous of the mathematically perfect configuration of pulsing, greasy lard-rolls around Gabby's rim.
At any rate, Gabourey Sidibe gives me a personal standing ovation whenever I use this jackhammer-like mechanical device on her called "The Anal Intruder." I know this sexual machine works well because it usually requires EMERGENCY MEDICAL ATTENTION just to remove the smile from Gabby's puffy, round moon face.
MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA, your hated "Precious Troll" strikes again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Is that your advice to OP, r33?
I thought "Dawna" was good, too.
First they have to be fucking princesses for the day at their goddam weddings , now we have to stand and bow and wear the royal colors because they are giving birth?
There's lots of queens in the world.
...but a genuine princess is exceedingly rare
(Same thing goes for all you "divas" out there. Maria Callas was a diva. Keshonna is not)
I'd send a gift and be done with it.
Dawna's big day was today. The shower went off without a hitch. The standing ovation happened and she pretended to be completely overcome with emotion, falling to a nearby chair and putting a tissue over her face. I don't know if people bought it.
She threw one fit because the wine glasses were not the particular style she had put on her registry. Fortunately her sister told her to knock the shit off before she got completely out of control. Now....onto the wedding!
There is way too much blubbering and standing ovations going on. At one time, standing ovations were rare and an audience knew that they were only for something outstanding. Nowadays applauding and standing ovations are given out like M&Ms at Halloween, just like blubbering bitches (including men) on the TV news. No "hearts and flowers" story is complete without someone turning on the waterworks. Since standing ovations are so commonplace now...whatever floats your fuckin boat......
Liza! got a standing ovation at her wedding.
I noticed that there was applauding and lots of blubbering among the "faithful" when Benny called it quits. I guess the Catholic Church itself has gone white trash all the way to the top now. Oh for the days when a mass was accompanied by dignified pipe organ music and the Latin language, not applause and banjo and guitar strumming masses. I might as well go to some "box church" in a strip mall somewhere that "fellowships".
[quote]Liza! got a standing ovation at her wedding.
Guests thought it was time to leave.
no r42.....Liza! got entrance applause and a standing ovation....she should have just skipped the vow and gone right into Ring Them Bells.
OP, thanks for the update. Please keep us informed. For some reasons bridezillas amuse me to no end. They seem like the bouquet of all that's wrong with the society today.
Would that include too many standing ovations freely and emotionally handed out as well as other forms of lack of self control such as too much teary eyed stuff r44?
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
