It can't REALLY be that time already, can it?

Today is April 20th, 2007. And although this day means many different things depending on who you talk to, it means one thing in particular to me. Today means that it's three months. Thirteen weeks. Ninety days. That's how many days it is until we get married. And really, as bad as it sounds, it's STILL not hitting me. I know that on July 20th I get married to the wonderfulest gal I know, and that we're going to walk into the rest of our lives together. But I've been thinking that way for over a year and a half, since we got engaged, so it's not seeming like that big of a change. You might think I'm not taking this seriously enough, and I've been accused of that before; I've referred to the wedding ceremony in show terms plenty of times, from the "costumes" to the "audience" to the "lines". But to me that's not insulting or inappropriate. A really good show, when put on right, can talk about real emotions and themes, and make the people who are watching it think about their own lives, their own relationships, and their own goals. I'm not saying my wedding's going to be the five star popcorn wedding of the summer, full of drama, romance, and laughs. I am saying that even though it's a show, it's not a hollow show. It's important and meaningful, because it's about something true and real. Anyhow, that's what I think. Am I dumb? Maybe. But when you're saturated in music and movies the way I am, and did drama and music concerts for the better part of my life, stories and shows are part of my basic operating system.

So I had a couple of questions for you that read this blog. Peach and I have a wedding website, and although I'd love for many of you to see it, especially my internet friends from far away, I don't really want to put the link on my public blog where anyone can click and enter (although, really, I'm sure it'd come up on Google if you really wanted to waste fifteen minutes). Any of my virtual friends care to see it? Also, I'm kind of stuck for something to put up some there, so if you have suggestions for content, I'd welcome them.

Hey doc! What's your email again? I have another set of friends gettin' hitched in July who have a website, and you can always peruse their content for ideas! Email Justice or I and we'll send you the URL!

We totally thought of our wedding as theatre, up to and including doing pictures before the ceremony so we didn't have to have a 2 hour "intermission" in the middle of it. I totally get it. And that doesn't mean you're not taking it seriously enough. I don't know why people think you have to be freaking out about something to take it seriously.

I would like to see as well. Also, isn't July 20th a Friday?

Kristin K. said...

The Doc said...

To all who have said you want to see the site: very well, I will get you the address. Any suggestions about what to put ON it, however, would still be appreciated. You'll get the address sent to you by the end of the week, Scout's honour.

Mrs. L, I will send that e-mail out toute-suite!

Allan, yeah, we're getting married on a Friday. You got a problem with that, CHUMP?

Hi! How are you?

Also, the security word for this entry is an anagram of climax.

Interesting...

Congrats on the up coming wedding. I have always seen weddings as a big play - a dress up party complete with lines.

I didn't find being married any different except it did take me awhile to actually get comfortable calling SSB my husband. It was just too weird!!
