Egads, I'm all married. I just want to take the time to say thank you so much to everybody who came. I know it was way out of the way for some of you, but I'm very happy that everybody who did come was able to, and I understand why the rest of you couldn't. It was an absolute blast for those of you that missed it. Yesterday and Friday was a high-octane stress day for me, just because we had to run back and forth to the airport about 5 times, and one group got lost.

It got better when on the day of the wedding, I made sure I had my tux and my shoes, and I made sure all the groomsmen had theirs. It was about 30 minutes until the ceremony when Forrest said "do you have the rings?" and my heart sank. I'm like, "oh crap!" and so I'm frantic. I run and talk to one of Liz's relatives who knows the city because it's his old stomping ground, so he drove back to the hotel at top speed, got the rings, and we had to start the ceremony without them. He got back, Forrest got the rings from him, and all was well. Liz called while this was going on and asked about them and I said "yeah, um... it's being taken care of," because I figured she might have strangled me if I told her I forgot the rings. I told her afterwards and she said "yeah, we had our own issues, so it's all good, and we got them, so it's good. I probably would have cried if you told me when you didn't have them then, so it's good on you."

That was my wedding experience. Fun fun, we have a story for the grandkids. Bye everybody!

Holy crap, I'm getting married tomorrow.

For those of you that missed it because you're either too lame or don't have facebook, Liz and I pulled the most excellent prank yesterday.

You know how you can set your relationship status? Well, early in the morning Liz and I changed ours to single. I changed my status to ":(" and Liz did hers to "is crushed." Needless to say, chaos ensued. There was an ensuing onslaught of "What the heck?" and "Are you guys okay?" and "What happened?" comments. There were a few people, namely Jean and Hannah, who were clever enough to see past our ruse, because they are such clever girls and know how devious we two are.

It was slightly less funny (but still totally hilarious) when my coworkers said to me, "That is a terrible prank!" today. Apparently word travels fast. I have maybe 3 or 4 of my coworkers on facebook, and they clearly saw the status and spread the word. Some of them had apparently wanted to say something about it yesterday, but were too worried I was going to start crying or jump off the building (those are her words). My creative director even said, "That is so mean! We were thinking about throwing you guys a shower, and then we all freaked out!" As she was telling me all this I was giggling uncontrollably (it was in an IM. Because we're very lazy in our office). I'm still giggling as I think about just how panicked they were.

I feel a little bad about it, just because I know a few people probably went into cardiac arrest, but come on, it's all in good fun.

What's cool is that they're still actually going to be throwing this shower, which totally makes my coworkers way cooler than any of yours.

Back from Dallas.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention: We went to Dallas for Electric Six.

the drive )

the concert )

The E6 )

after the show )

Now we're back in OKC, ready to resume life as usual.

So, to summarize: Electric Six = awesome.
Drunk people at concerts ≠ awesome.
Cain = awesome.
Kathy = awesome.
Dallas traffic ≠ awesome. In fact, Dallas traffic = aneurysm inducing not awesome.

I need a better superlative than awesome.

I'm really tired of the ass-nanigans of the denizens of this city at night. Last week is was obnoxious mariachi music, and last night it was bottle rockets. Granted, you have to deal with that crap no matter where you go when it starts to approach July and for several months after that, but it's still annoying.

I also have yet to mention that I still didn't get my damn raise processed, but I am assured, by both Richard (my boss) and Dale (the payroll guy), that it definitely will be in my next period, including all the missed wages. If it's not, I'm going to be raising some hell. Possibly even suing.

All I ever do is complain. Let's think positive!

We went to the botanical gardens yesterday. We were looking at it for our reception. We decided that, while very pretty, it's entirely too small for our needs, so I think we're going to be looking at the garden of the gods, and hopefully that will suit us better. Liz took oodles of pictures, and included in that batch was one of like... a dozen pictures of me that I don't hate.

Speaking of matrimony and all that fun stuff, we've set a date. April 21st. So we don't have to remember yet another date. >.> Liz's words, not mine.

My dad actually finally got back to me, too. I sent an e-mail to my grandma and she spread the word through the Harmony family tree, and my dad is the first one to get back to me. I think the last time we actually talked was when I had the ulcer (remember that?) and was asking him about insurance. He actually seems to be in a positive place in his life, which is good. I still have very little respect for him for ditching his kids, but I'd still like to see him there. He's a Unix administrator now, which just proves that once a nerd, always a nerd.

I still have yet to hear back from any of the rest of my family, except for my grandma. She's sending me $100 for graduating. Grandmas are cool like that.

We're gonna see pirates today. Yay swashbuckling.

I'm so engaged right now.

Now here's Liz, my fiancée, with the full story >.>
leujin: (Default)
>.> Oh, I almost forgot, you're all gonna love this one.

Don't worry, the person who would be affected by this most can't see it )
