Wait a minute…. Dr. Wilson (House) was suicide-kid? (Sorry, that’s what I’ve remembered him as… not having seen this movie since the 1990s.)
Now I’m going to have to rewatch Dead Poets Society.
This is in a word: awesomeness.
This July, friends and family (including moi) will be flying back to Hawaii to witness and celebrate the wedding of my Brother-in-law and his fiancée (whom by the way have been together forever – they even went to Junior prom together). However, for various reasons, they are actually making it legal in a couple weeks instead of on the big day in Hawaii. (Personally, that’s not a bad idea – better than gasping every 10 minutes on your wedding day freaked out that you forgot your wedding license before remembering that the minister was holding on to it.)
I kept hoping that Wedding Part I would be in Vegas but for a while the couple was set on going to city hall. So I was thrilled to hear they changed their minds and are going to do it in Vegas after all. (This is totally not true – but I’m choosing to believe that my drunken musings to the groom a couple weeks ago about how cool it would be to have Elvis marry them might have paved the way to this decision.)
But the best part (where I finally reveal the awesomeness of the situation) is that there will be no Chapel O Love in ripped jeans a la Britney Spears for those two. They are going for the Medieval Themed Wedding Package at the Excalibur Hotel. The bride may not be very thrilled about this. (As the bride, I wouldn’t have been either but the Hubby made an excellent point when he commented, “You got your wedding. I was in a tux with 5 of my friends in 85 degree weather (yeah – I was a TOTAL bridezilla). Believe me, if we had 2 weddings, the Vegas one would be entirely the way I wanted it.” – Knowing him, we’d probably have to get dressed up like pirates. Hmm… I think I might have just found the bargaining chip to use to get him to renew our vows someday.)
But I digress… back to the pure awesomeness. I cannot wait to see the pictures! And pictures will have to do because I already have a previous obligation… watching my Hubby accept his MBA at graduation!
Me: (Needing to look up an internet address – I forget for what – I remember that I blogged about it before and decide to search from my blog’s homepage versus sorting through google.)
Me: (Internal dialogue) Oh my god! Why is my webpage down?!
(FRANTIC searching to figure out what went wrong ensues.)
Me: (Internal dialogue) What am I going to do. I can’t post a message saying my website is having difficulties… no one will be able to see it.
What will people do? They’ll be so upset!
Okay, take slow deep breaths.
Oh wait, I have what… probably a total of 10 followers that would care that my blog was down – and each of them I know IRL so it doesn’t really matter….
Awww… that’s pretty pathetic.
And wow. I’m such a narcissist!
(Phone rings and it’s my mom.)
Mom: Hey, I wanted to tell you I love your blog. We haven’t talked in a while so I keep up with your blog and it makes me so happy to know what’s going on in your life.
Me: You don’t know how much you just made my day!
(Oh and the website issue fixed itself in 30 minutes time. Weird Tumblr issue I suppose.)
Okay rude little thieves, who stole the soaps from the bathroom?! A couple hours ago there were 2 filled bottles in the women’s bathroom and now they are both gone.
Fortunately I’m anal and always carry that anti-bacterial gel with me but what about everyone else that I share a kitchen with?
I like to think that I’m one of the least jealous people around. I mean – of course I think my life could be made much better if I won the lottery – but besides that, I’m pretty happy for what others get do do and experience. But today this text had me seething with jealousy. I think it might have had something to do with me reading the text soon after popping allergy pills (I never have allergy issues in Hawaii), doning a rain jacket, and running to catch my train (1 minute to spare).
Between this text and receiving a wedding invitation from one of my friends getting married in Hawaii in June – I feel my day is going to consist of looking up flights into Honolulu.
