Howdy, friendly reading person!
I'm on a bit of a hiatus right now, but only to work on other projects -- one incredibly exciting example being the newly-released kids' science book series Things That Make You Go Yuck!
If you're a science and/or silliness fan, give it a gander! See you soon!

Weekend Werind: Matrimonial Memories

All of this talk about our recent trip to see one of my wife’s friends get married got me thinking: have I ever actually written anything about our own wedding?

The answer, conveniently enough, is ‘yes’. And this being the weekend, I’ll take the opportunity to simply point you at those posts, and get back to watching football, unpacking and trying desperately to find a clean pair of pants to wear to work tomorrow. In that order. Obviously.

In the meantime, there are two mentions (at least) of my nuptial ceremonies in the 100 Things Posts About Me canon:

#25. I got married when I was twenty-five years old.

#67. The first wedding I ever attended was my own.

“I thought I might screw the whole thing up, or need a ‘cheat sheet’ tucked in my cummerbund to get me through it.”

(Both of the above statements are true, by the way, as amazing as the latter seems to some people. I was a bit afraid that having never seen one, I wouldn’t know what groomly duties I was meant to perform. I thought I might screw the whole thing up, or need a ‘cheat sheet’ tucked in my cummerbund to get me through it. Luckily, I made it through without too much trouble.

Unfortunately, I’ve screwed up my other goal of having the first funeral I attend be my own. I was really hoping to hit a home run on that one, but I’ve already been to two where I wasn’t the guest of honor.

Pity, too. Even as dorky as I am, I don’t think I could have screwed up lying in a casket for a couple of hours. I really didn’t need to see other people pulling it off to get the hang of it.)

While I’m here and we’re waxing about weddings, I might as well point out that the ceremony this weekend is not, in fact, the second that I’ve been to. Between my own blissful hitching and this most recent ball-and-chaining, I’ve attended a few more, maybe a couple of dozen or so. And, it turns out, I’ve mentioned a couple of those in print, too:

June 20th, 2004: What I Learned on My Summer Va-Cape-Tion

November 22nd, 2004: Looks Like Eternity Will Be Nice and Toasty!

October 8th, 2005: Guinness at the Reception? What a Beautiful Ceremony!

And finally, to ensure you don’t feel jilted or left at the blogging altar this weekend, there’s one last wedding-related item I can offer, aptly nestled in the category ‘Weird for the Sake of Weird‘. As you’ll see, if you follow the next link to:

May 12, 2006: Imaginary Catalog: Wedding Cake Figurines

That’s all the nuptial nutball nonsense I can muster for now. A happy — and blissful weekend to all.
