So I have a list of blogs that I "follow," meaning that they are on a list that show up in a nice list whenever I log into this site and I can conveniently scroll through what they've been writing about for the past few weeks/months. I am dutifully impressed by their profilicity (is that a word?). How can people write so much about one day in their life and oftentimes a day that has already passed? But anyway I am glad for it because they have thought of all the things that I have never thought to think of. Salt shaker vases? Brilliant and cheap! Wedding ring ads? Outrageous and sexist! So much passion to expend on fleeting ideas. Now I don't have to figure out which hotels to book. . . hehe.
Anyway as I've stated previously, I'm not anti-wedding blog (Hello, here I am). But I just can't write about weddings with such all-consuming passion. I simply don't care enough. There, I said it. But I can't help but feel a bit curious for that feeling. That love love love of all things weddings, and in particular, all things potential for your own wedding. Most of the time I know I'm getting married because my ring always turns in such a way as to jam into my pinky finger whenever I carry a heavy bag in my left hand. Am I not a romantic?
I think maybe the more attention other people pay to it, the more likely I am to discount the significance of that thing. I am not a populist. I believe firmly in esotericism. The wedding will be intimate and full of momentous import, but mostly just for us. For the rest of you, it's a big party with flowers and champagne. I'm okay with that.
Anyway, updates! I did our wedding website which is full of the usual sillness and some marginally useful information. I cannot for the life of me be really serious about this stuff. I'm lucky people think I'm funny and not worried that their dear friend/son/brother/nephew/cousin/grandson is marrying a sociopath. (Which, for the record, he is not. I am very well-adjusted.)
And our winter break is coming up soon so we hope (fingers crossed) that we will be able to get many wedding chores done. Music, invitations, hotels, cake, veil, second wedding dress.--wait, what? just kidding. Although in the Year of the Wedding, I should be able to purchase any pretty dress I want. Ha.
Okay dudes, I have to get back to studying. Thanks for the break. Talk to you soon!
