So Say We All.

Yesterday morning we were picked up by the team-up of manningkrull & Marjorie; slim, trim & full of vim! We piled into the Zip Car & were off to the races. The drive to New Jersey was maybe two hours? Not very long. We stopped at a WaWa for lunch-- I over indulged, diary! I had a cheesesteak sandwich & also chicken fingers. I had intended the fingers for sharing, but that just isn't how the world works out, sometimes. There was just enough time for Jenny to buy sunglasses, a decision I envied through the rest of the day-- then, to the wedding! littlewashu got hitched! Very exciting, especially since Kerry is a much better friend to us than we are to her. She'll come to Metropolis to visit us, but as much as we say we'll visit her in Midvale, we never do. Well for once we finally did! All it took was a huge life milestone. We didn't really know what to expect, one way or the other, with the venue. The words "farm" & "no high heels" had been tossed around. It was a great venue, as it turned out! There were two open bars, a barbecue smoker, croquet & bocce & frisbee games, a jam band, & about two hundred people. Yeah, it was pretty big! The ceremony was a lot of fun; we got to put hexes on the rings-- they were passed through the audience for that purpose. There was a tea ceremony, & lots of henna, & at the end there was a reading with call & response...& the response was "so say we all!" Hooray for geek weddings-- what else would you expect from someone with a Tenchi Muyo! nickname? The sun was out in full effect, too, which I'm sure some people liked. Me, I'm a hateful gollum, so I was all squinting & squirming. Kerry & Chris looked very nice & happy. After the ceremony, there was some snacking, & some goofing around, & iphisol was there with her partner Alex, who was predictably great. My favorite part was when Kerry's dad was making a toast, & joking about how her last name will have less syllables, & Kerry was like "I'm keeping my last name, dad!" I also enjoyed the best man's opener in his speech, the ice-breaker: "Fornication. (pause, cough) Excuse me, For an occasion such as this..." Oh, that was rich. Wedding cliches are new to me! Night fell on the event-- after dinner, of course, of which I partook only lightly on account of too much WaWa-- & then there were glow sticks for everyone. I made a crown! That was our signal to take off; we went back to the Zipper & came home. I dozed in & out, & the first part of Metropolis I saw were the giant Towers of Light. I like The City a lot. Then poured into bed. Someone in our building woke us up again last night, though, having people over at four in the morning. They didn't play music or anything, which is the troubling thing-- there is nothing to be angry about, officially. They were just loudly guffawing, & the courtyard caught & amplified their braying. Like the donkey boys from Pinocchio. The worst part is of course that they weren't being full on jerks, just thoughtless. I can't be all full of righteousness or anything; I can't be mad that they are awake on a different schedule. Well I can, but it isn't like, criminal of them. Just annoying. Whatever, I just woke up at six-- or rather, gave up trying to fall back asleep. I'm not particularly angsty, since I'm all full of wedding fun. Though my allergies are murdering me. I'm dying through my nose.
