Planning Shenanigans

       Planning a wedding is exhausting. Even though we pretty much thought it was all planned out, there was still the logistic side of everything to figure out. Namely- how did we make so many friends? We made a preliminary guest list and we had 150 guests. NOT INCLUDING FAMILY. We need to become less friendly, because 150 people plus all of our families are not going to fit at the cottage. I think we have struck on a fairly good compromise though. We are going to keep the actual wedding super-small and then when we get back from the honeymoon, we will have a big party in the Ann Arbor area. So if you don't get invited to the actual wedding, don't get offended, you are still loved by us, but we have to invite Aunt Mildred. (She can't come to the big afterparty, don'tcha know?) And if you DO get invited to the wedding, you better show up. Or decline in a timely manner so we can give your seats to someone else. If you decide not to acquiesce to this very reasonable demand, than I will sic killer crack-smoking clowns on you or something equally horrible will happen. I'm just sayin'.... don't mess with my seating chart.

    In other news, I think the clothing aspect of the wedding is finished. Also, I've realized that I'd rather work on the wedding than any of my homework. Look at the giant pile of Chemistry homework, or look at honeymoon spots? Yeah.... at the moment, the honeymoon plan is to fly to Ireland and stay in a castle there for a few nights and then hop on a cruise and visit Rome, London and then fly back home from Paris. (You can see why this interests me more than the molecular properties of nitrogen, yeah?)

   In non-wedding related news, we bought a kayak for me. A purchase which was quite fun and only dampened a little, due to the fact that they had no pink ones. I will attempt to be an outdoorsy-type kayak-er.( Because apparently kayaking inside is something only drunk people do.) As much as I dislike outdoorsy-type shenanigans, I am giving it an honest go. It seems that I always end up sunburnt, questioned by the mafia or a combination of the two. However, we will be taking them out on Lake Michigan this weekend, so wish me luck!
