It's hard running a business — like, say, Mediabistro — that's built on networking and cocktail parties. (We know, because half of us used to work there.) There are so many people to meet, so many drinks to throw back, so many names to remember. And sometimes, unfortunately, you get those names a little mangled. Like in this latest cocktail-party invitation, which found its way to our inbox last night:

Hey, you can't be expected to remember every little person in medialand.
