|02:48 pm - we are gathered here today to join these two in the bonds of holy MOLY!|
today is my cousin lisa's wedding rehearsal dinner thing. i have no idea what that means; what are we rehearsing? is this eating practice? tomorrow is the actual wedding, which should be lovely. i like weddings. in theory, i think of them as a useless ceremony - public declaration of a private decision, made for tax purposes - but in practice, it's a day set aside for people to be happy and pretend they live in a movie. speaking of which, i saw "say anything" last night for the 1st time. i've always heard of it as being one of the ultimate romantic comedy type movies, and honestly i was pretty disapointed. good ending though.
lisa organized a lil mt monadnock hiking group for today that i was excited to be in, but last night i got all sorts of sick and decided i should just sleep. i feel fine now, so hey. but it's about 934834 degrees today, so i'm thinking hiking would have been deadly either way.
i bought a snazzy suit at goodwill the other day, for the wedding. goodwill wins at life. they had this crazy purple velour suit jacket that i wanted, but i don't have 8 bucks to spend on a gag outfit
the icecream truck is going by! i can hear its music. that always makes me happy
and if you are sitting there saying, no, no, no you won't be getting there saying, no, no, no cuz no can't do anything and i know everything i know, i know, i know - and in the nighttime i sleep all alone i think of the bones that hold up your body - i think of the word archaeology, or maybe i mean anthropology - i'm sorry for meeting your body, a body i must leave alone and the only thing i've ever known - and i know everything and no can't do anything, i know, i know, i know - and if you are sitting there praying for something to happen, you won't be sitting there praying for long - cuz i don't know what to say, but i kneel down anyway and pray for everything i know - and in the daytime i walk all alone, i walk past the home that once held your body i think of your body's geography, or maybe i mean your geometry i'm sorry for meeting your body a body i must leave alone and the only thing i've ever known - did i teach you anything, cuz you taught me so many things i know, almost everything i know
pascal - no can't do anything
np: the fisher king
1. Rehearsal Dinner is the dinner that occurs either before or after the ceremony dry run. The people involved in the ceremony do a cut down version on the ceremony (they don't do vows or any of that stuff, but the procession, figuring out where people stand during the thing, when stuff will happen) then they eat with whoever they invite to the rehearsal dinner. or the other way around, if the B&G prefer it that way.
2. Say Anything is a great movie. Do you remember when I said all 'great romance' is stalking unless its reciprocated? that movie totally proves my point. which doesn't stop me from loving it.
3. goodwill TOTALLY wins at life.

i don't want a big wedding. i'd be happy just getting married in vegas. in fact thats exactly what i want. as much as i like to be the center of attention, i'm also not so found of the big fuss and compliments, i don't know how to deal with them.
i want a relationship which is at that stage, but i could care less if we are legally officially married or not. so basically it will be whatever the lady wants

i just like the idea of the ring and being married. its kind of stupid i guess, because you don't have to get married, but there is a part of me that wants to be mrs somebody.
at the moment anything will do though.
you and me babe. and kevi, if he wants, of course! we are gonna rock out like roosters in Montreal. <3 helllllls yes. ;) p.s. have you seen the movie 'the fisher king' ? pretty rad.
When I hear the ice cream truck, it makes me want to punch a wall... or an ice cream truck, or something. But that's only because here in the 'hood I will hear the Mr. Softee jingle approximately 1,874,512 times before the summer is out, and it will feel like approximately 4,572,934 times. The worst is when there are two trucks approaching my house from opposite directions, so I get to listen to dueling Mr. Softee songs. Duh nuh nuh nuh-nuh-nuh nuh NUH nuh nuh...
i have never lived somewhere that saw frequent ice cream truck invasions, so it's still a childlike treat for me. i can see how it would get annoying though. you should make the truckdrivers actually duel, for your shopping dollar
where do you find such beautiful songs?
i found that one while searching for an entirely different beautiful song - "summer is almost here" by PAS/CAL (you see the confusion)
that movie was totally weird. and wicked awesome at the same time.
