“It must be nice to get by with 6 hours of sleep…”

…are you kidding me? It’s not “nice” to get by on 6 hours of sleep, it’s survival. 10 hours is a friggin’ luxury. You sound very out of touch with reality.

10 hours of sleep? Girl you need some vitamins.

overmylimit88 :  If I have even 10 minutes less than exactly 10 hours of sleep, I am not functioning on all cylinders the next day. 

Besides that fact that this sleep requirement seems extreme to us, NONE of us feel that we function on “all cylinders” when short on our personal sleep requirements.  It’s called powering through.  And it’s a basic part of life.  People with babies/children live in this state 24-7.  I don’t have kids and I still function on too little sleep fairly often.  It is a part of life.  If sleep is this big of a priority then do not have a dinner party.  Have a brunch.  Or have nothing.

This can’t be real. But on the off chance it is, OP you are a very weird and self-absorbed person.

I’m not sure the level of vitriol I am witnessing here is quite necessary, at least as far as the dinner party goes…  OP is allowed to eat what she likes and get as much sleep as she deems necessary.  That said, I do agree with PPs that a cocktail party and/or luncheon may be more appropriate given your needed bed time.  There really isn’t a *nice* way to tell someone to get out so you can go to bed.  I would not go to a vegan or even vegetarian friend’s house and expect to be served meat.  Menuwise, I would probably stick to what I call “undercover” vegan food, meaning things that are vegan that people eat every single day without thinking about it.  Italian would be my personal preferance but Mexican and Indian cuisine also lend themselves to a vegan menu.  I would shy away meat substitutes because they typically are not appealing to non vegan/vegetarians.
