Well, friends. It's official. Wedding season '09 is kicking off this weekend. My very dear friend Michele is gettin' hitched! (Let's hope the townies from her bachelorette party don't try to crash the wedding!)
I'm very much looking forward to being a straight-up wedding guest for the first time in what seems like eons. I mean, I have always been honored to be a bridesmaid and/or maid of honor in my sissies' and friends' weddings. But sometimes, it's actually kinda sorta fun to just be a guest too. Why?
- I got to pick out my own dress. (It's a silk magenta halter dress... with pockets!)
- I don't have to lug that damn wedding day survival kit around all day. (Though I am letting the maid of honor borrow the kit contents for her duties -- that crap is expensive to buy for just one day, and my kit is still pretty well stocked from the last time I used it!)
- I don't have any responsibilities! (Other than doing a reading at the ceremony. And then later getting ridiculously drunk and dominating the dance floor with blogmom and blogdad. OK, so I do sort of have some responsibilities after all. But two out of three ain't bad.)
And, I'm also very interested to see what this whole Kevin Costner look-alike character is all about. I mean, it is Summer of Sin after all.
(Too bad blogdad is probs going to put the kibosh on anything involving boys. I'm effing 33 years old and still feel like a 14-year-old girl around him.)
Anyhow, talk to you after the wedding! And (early) congrats, Michele and Eric! :)
P.S. If you were me... where would you sneak off for a quick smooch with a cute boy (should you encounter one) where your blogparents would not be likely to find you? Ya know... just in case...
