I have been busting my ass for the past however many months. I have spreadsheets like you never seen. I have picked out individual coloring books for each child that will be at the wedding, I have an usher assigned to pay off the homeless guys that hang out on the church steps. I have put 248 stupid labels on 124 stupid bottles of water to go into 62 stupid welcome bags. I have downloaded numerous fonts for the wedding program until finding one Red did not turn her nose up at. I created a save-the-date card that was so brilliant that a lot of people did not understand it. I created an awe-inspiring website and secured a pretty decent domain name for it. I have color-coded seating charts and reformatted them twice so my 70 year-old mother can see that I did not seat my aunt in some dark corner.
So now that we are at T-9 days, I have a few things which I have compared to being less involved than planning a wedding:
- Mounting an amphibious assault campaign on Guatemala.
- Earning an advanced degree in robotics.
- Creating an exact replica of a medieval tapestry that can be carbon dated to no later than the 14th century.
- Training cats to ride unicycles.
- Making a stop-motion movie of Tess of the d'Ubrvilles using Lego.
Which is why I have named this campaign, Operation: Start Again. Though the folks at Zazzle uncoolly pulled some copyright bullshit on me when I tried to have tee shirts made.
I have my nieces taking video of the reception on Filp cams that I bought them, so I should be able to post some raw footage once we get back from our fabulous honeymoon in Bermuda! (Footage of the honeymoon will not be provided without credit card information.)
