two month mark

I'm getting married in two months.

How did that happen? T and I got engaged in April 2003, and for various reasons (mostly because my brother already had his wedding date set for Halloween of that year) we decided to wait until fall of this year to get married. So we've had this super long engagement, which is good because it gave us plenty of time to plan but bad because tasks expand to fill available time. The whole time, the wedding has felt like something that's very far away. And now all of a sudden the deadline is real and there's all these things I still intend to do that I thought I had plenty of time for. Fortunately, T is the world's most organized project manager, so there aren't as many of those things as there could be.

The invitations went out this weekend. We had a dance lesson on Friday -- a friend of T's is a swing instructor and he offered to help us out. He didn't teach us anything fancy, just gave us advice on getting used to moving together. After much shopping, we found ties for T and the groomsmen that match the bridesmaids' outfits. We made our appointment to pick up a marriage liscence in a couple of weeks. (And we fit in a viewing of Spider-Man 2, which I enjoyed a lot and thought was a clear improvement over the first movie (although I saw the first on video, so maybe the comparison isn't fair). Doc Ock was a great villian: his arms were fully-realized characters themselves, and I really liked the actor who played him.)

For the last many months, I've really been wanting to get to the wedding soon, partly because I'm looking forward to both the wedding itself and being married to T, but mostly because I don't want to have to think about planning it anymore. But at this moment, I'm wishing I had a little more time.

Oh god. Whenever I realize that my wedding is less than two months away I start to get a little shaky. We had a short engagement, then partway through there was that little financial hiccup that made me put ALL planning on hold. Even knowing that the wedding is still happening, I didn't do *anything* for about a month. Eek. My invitations have not gone out yet. Not even addressed yet. The goal is to mail them out this week, although I'll start with out-of-town people, because it's not such a big deal if local people get their invites next week. *breathe*

My wedding may suck, but I'll still be married at the end. Heh. Oh. That is if I actually figure out how long it takes to get a marriage license and get it in time.

Spiderman 2 completely rocked.

I'm still holding out hope that we'll figure out a way to make it to your wedding, because I think it will be beautiful. :)

I hope you can make it too!

And thanks. Let's keep breathing together. :)

And I still need to have my dress made! What do you think about bridesmaids in green satin togas?

Toga! Toga! Toga! (I finally saw Animal House when I went to visit my brother.)

I don't think my man would go for it, though...

I think some decisions have to be left to you. ;)

    Ooooh, I would totally be down with an all-BioWare Kiss Battle, that sounds like so much fun. I would totally prompt for some older IPs like Jade Empire, too :D

    Give me notice and I'll go spam the…

    I've already gotten at least one request to make it an all-Bioware canons kiss battle, which might encourage more participation given the current state of hype for Andromeda... :)

    If I go for it, I…

    I'd love one, and I'm sure the gang over on dragon_age would be (although they're we're all hyping up over Mass Effect Andromeda right now, but still worth posting a…

    I'm concerned and I don't primarily use DW. I am thinking about backing up my content there, but I'm just not sure about how it will work out. I do need to get on this, though.
