I Used to be Cool, but Now I'm a Bride.

I just got engaged and I can already feel the taffeta tightening around my neck.

Looking at wedding venues online

  • Mike: ooh they also do quinceaneras there
  • Mike: maybe we should tell them we are doing that instead
  • Me: I am a janky ass 15 year old
  • Mike: what why
  • Me: because I am 30
  • Me: and a jew
  • Mike: you could get really offended if they questioned you
  • Mike: "ARE YOU SAYING I LOOK OLD"
  • Mike: "ON MY QUINCEANERA?!?!"
  • Mike: "HOW DARE YOU"
  • Me: so you think I should insist that rather than being a 30 year old jew getting married I am having a Quinceanera
  • Me: Then get into a fight
  • Mike: whatever, you're a lousy 15-year-old latina
  • Me: fuck you
  • Mike: YOU KNOW I DIDN'T MEAN THAT
  • Mike: YOU CAN BE ANYTHING YOU WANT TO BE
  • Mike: YOU CAN BE A PUERTO RICAN BABY
  • Me: are you saying I look old
  • Me: and on my quinceanera
  • Mike: see!
  • Mike: it's satisfying, right?
  • Me: hahahahahah
  • Me: I want to be a puerto rican baby
  • Me: I am going to go around fighting anyone who questions that
  • Me: and you will have to defend my honor
  • Mike: oh goddamnit
  • Mike: well fine

  • Mike: and you can't fight retards

We watched the wedding episode of Metalocolypse last night. This is basically what I think of weddings, and why I am freaking out about mine.

barthel:

On Sunday, we’re going to talk about our wedding for, oh, probably like 27 hours.  It should be fun.

permalink Mike said that he would take care of the cake design, and then said “It will be a dinosaur cake!” He then thought about that for a second, decided that was not appropriate, and declared “A dinosaur in a wedding dress cake!”

I ordered my wedding cake today! This is the initial design. Yay!
Oh god, am I supposed to have opinions about cake design? Like beyond, yum. I guess yum is not even a design opinion. People are going to ask my opinion about these kinds of things. I dont even like cake all that much. I would prefer a pile of onion rings. Onion rings are not cake. People will expect cake.

Band, Head Pieces, and Venues. Oh My!

I am getting used to the idea of being engaged and getting married. It still throws me for a bit of a loop when I get an email from my father with sentences like: “Actually, also, Mom and I are in wedding planning mode, and it occurred to me that it could be great to have a band like this from Chicago play at your party.” I have an indie dad, and he wants to get an indie band to play my wedding. I think it is adorable… I can’t imagine being able to get a band I would actually want to play at my wedding, but maybe the Scissor Sisters will be free to fly to Indiana that weekend.

Then I got a call this morning from a very old friend of mine, Matt, who I met in Pre-School, who owns the gayest salon in Chicago (http://www.mensgroomingparlor.com/), telling me that he was going to do my hair and makeup and that he is going to make me a head piece for the wedding. I told him to think tall awesome monstrosity.

So the engagement is becoming less scary, maybe even a little fun. But, I have done nothing yet. Mike and I are stopping by my parents’ house this weekend on our way to Seattle and we are apparently spending Saturday checking our venues… I assume my new found calm will be lost this weekend.

I will get married when I am an adult

Last night Mike and I (along with Janine, Matthew, and Vicky) went to the Electric 6 boat show. It was fantastic and we danced our faces off. Today, my entire body hurts, in particular my left knee.

When people used to ask me when Mike and I were going to get married, I would say when I am an adult. Well, now I am engaged and my knee hurts.

This is the hardest thing I have ever admitted, but I think I might be an adult.
