I am doing everything I can to drum up as much excitement about this event as is womanly possible.

Thank you for including me. Can't wait to meet you in person and flutter my lashes in gratitude!

Yes, many thanks, this is a killer line-up. And please note that I will be happy to flutter my lashes as well if you think that will help. You don't have to respond to that.
