peach What are you wearing?: peach

By sarah on Thursday, February 23, 2006 - 04:24 pm:

    the only reason i would ever don the color peach is by sheer force.

    check this out:

    can you say Wedding Hell?

    my friend Matt is getting married and i'm his Best Gal. his fiancee, when i met her, she seemed real cool, real good taste.

    but my god!

    MY GOD!

    how could she have chosen this? and why do i have to match her bridesmaides? i'm not a bridesmaid, i'm the Best Gal.

    shit. i might as well just wear Satan's Severed Head.

By beta on Thursday, February 23, 2006 - 05:53 pm:


    i think the cut, rather than the color is the biggest problem.

    maybe alterations are in order

    do away with the short sleeves (i would go sleeveless or halter)

    hem it to tea length.

    then it might pass for kitschy instead of vomitous.

By wisper on Thursday, February 23, 2006 - 07:55 pm:

    My god indeed.
    Every single colour available is better than the peach. The wine is very nice. Even the beige is better, which you'll never hear me say otherwise.

    You're in his party, you're right that you shouldn't match the bridesmaids, wtf :(
    At least it's cheap-ish.

By sarah on Friday, February 24, 2006 - 12:45 pm:

    good point, yes, cheap-ish, at least there's that. at least i'm not paying a lot for a bad dress.

    and alterations, yes, also good idea. would it be rude to ask or ruder to just do it and show up?

    i love my man's sense of humor - he made me feel better about it. he said, "at least it's relatively cheap compared to most wedding party dresses. i'll wear my miami vice outfit complete with no socks and penny loafers and we'll make a smashing couple..."

By TBone on Friday, February 24, 2006 - 01:43 pm:

    The pattern looks like carnage. Like faded meat.

    I don't understand why anyone would intentionally choose to make anything in the peach-beige-taupe spectrum.

By sarah on Friday, February 24, 2006 - 02:07 pm:

    peaches are the only thing that should be peach-colored.

    and some flowers.

    but that's it.

By sarah on Friday, February 24, 2006 - 02:08 pm:

    here's a frightening thought:

    peach shorts

    thank you and goodnight.

By beta on Friday, February 24, 2006 - 02:16 pm:


    also, how about reasoning with her?

By heather on Friday, February 24, 2006 - 02:25 pm:

    it's somebody's wedding, would you really want to hurt someone's feelings over a stupid dress?

    sarah's personality will outshine it with ease and no one will notice or remember the dress

By droopy on Friday, February 24, 2006 - 02:35 pm:

    i don't see what the big deal is, either.

    but she's right about one thing:pink shorts = evil

By droopy on Friday, February 24, 2006 - 02:36 pm:

    i meant peach.

By kazu on Friday, February 24, 2006 - 03:26 pm:

    anything described as "Flattering and forgiving" (forgiving of what?) should be avoided, but I agree with heather. can you talk to Matt about what you should wear? What are his groomsmen wearing...maybe you should match them.

By sarah on Friday, February 24, 2006 - 03:32 pm:

    nobody's feelings will get hurt. and you're right, it's not the end of the world. it's just that...

    i mean...

    COME ON! hasn't everyone been grossed out by bridesmaids dresses at least once in their life?

By sarah on Friday, February 24, 2006 - 03:35 pm:

    not to mention i'm just too old to be wearing a bridesmaids dress.

    did anyone watch figure skating last night? the Russian woman looked funny to me. she looked like an adult woman dressed up in a little girl's costume. same idea.

    there's just me and one groomsman. it's okay, i'll just deal. it's easier though when you have someone to comisserate with.

By sarah on Friday, February 24, 2006 - 03:37 pm:

    actually, all the figure skaters last night didn't seem to be as talented or animated as figure skaters of olympics past. ya know? just something intangible lacking...

By TBone on Friday, February 24, 2006 - 04:23 pm:

    The groomsmen should have to wear peach dresses too.

    They seemed to be lacking grace this year. They were technically quite skilled, and they were mostly very athletic, but they seemed less graceful.

By heather on Friday, February 24, 2006 - 04:55 pm:

    i think bridesmaids dresses are hilarious

    as are weddings

    the whole thing is a splendid avenue to showcase lack of taste

    that's why you have to drink and dance and then go do something outrageous in the dress

By Dougie on Friday, February 24, 2006 - 04:58 pm:

    I've always thought that in pairs figure skating, at the end of the routine, the man should have to do a long spin whilst holding the woman by the ankles (a la the hammer throw) and launch the woman into the stands, and the pair who launches the furthest wins the competition.

By Dougie on Friday, February 24, 2006 - 05:00 pm:

    I used to have a pair of pink & white striped shorts -- I looked pretty good in them.

By sarah on Friday, February 24, 2006 - 05:13 pm:

    i'm sure you did Dougie. i'm getting hot just thinking about it.

By Dougie on Friday, February 24, 2006 - 05:15 pm:

    No, I'm serious. I think they were Gap, and my 1st wife got them for me. I hesitated wearing them at first, but they were comfortable. I'll have to see if I can dig them out.

By platypus on Friday, February 24, 2006 - 05:18 pm:

    That dress is quite intense, Sarah. I don't really object to the wearing of peach, as a colour, on people with certain skin tones, but I can't imagine that dress being acceptable on anyone. A gentle plea for mercy might be in order.

    A wedding of dear friends I attended this summer had a neat variation on the bridesmaid dress theme--all of the bride's women were directed to wear some sort of creamy yellow, and the groomsmen were in maroon. But they could pick out the garments they wanted to wear. (One of the groomsmen, for example, wore a gorgeous maroon silk strappy dress.) Everyone looked lovely, but still created a homogenous image which didn't take away from the couple of the day.

    There was a funny article in the Chronicle today bitching about the figure skaters. Not having television, I never watch the Olympics unless I sneak over to someone else's house to catch a bit. And usually it's not worth it to me unless the event is equestrian of fencing, neither of which are winter events.

    To be fair, however, I should disclose that I am wearing maroon pants and a peach strappy top right now.

By semillama on Friday, February 24, 2006 - 09:56 pm:

    it's not so much the cut or the color, but the pattern - that one
    HUGE leaf!

    Also re: figure skaters - new scoring system is done by basically
    rolling some dice and picking the the number of teh judges that
    come up - doesn't seem that fair to me. I don't think anyone who
    falls at all should be getting any medals much less a silver.

    weddings are getting increasingly scary, but that could just be
    because there's one in my future.

By Antigone on Friday, February 24, 2006 - 10:51 pm:

    Goddamn, I'm farting up a shitstorm these days.

By platypus on Saturday, February 25, 2006 - 02:43 am:

    Me too, Antigone. It must be the weather.

By kazu on Saturday, February 25, 2006 - 06:26 pm:

    "I don't think anyone who falls at all should
    be getting any medals much less a silver"

    what if everyone falls?

    then you have the ski-launch hurricane man who fell toward
    the end and fell to seventh despite that amazing twisty thing
    he did.

By semillama on Saturday, February 25, 2006 - 11:24 pm:


By agatha on Sunday, February 26, 2006 - 10:43 pm:

    Sarah, you're one of those girls that will look good in even this vomitous dress. Buy yourself some knockout shoes, and all will be fine. It is hideous, though- does this woman normally have such bad taste, or is she experiencing some sort of wedding induced stress attack?

By sarah on Monday, February 27, 2006 - 03:52 pm:

    oh no, shoes. i'm historically bad with shoes.

    what would these knockout shoes look like, do you think?

    the wedding is about 1.5 hours north of philly. anyone here live near philly? i have friends in philly, senor has family in pittsburgh, i have family between the two cities, in the area swine used to refer to as "kentucky".

By agatha on Tuesday, February 28, 2006 - 03:16 pm:

By agatha on Tuesday, February 28, 2006 - 03:17 pm:

    Sorry, I got a little carried away there. This is what happens when I'm procrastinating. I called in sick to get some schoolwork done today, damn me all to hell.

By agatha on Tuesday, February 28, 2006 - 07:17 pm:

    I scared everyone with the shoes, didn't I? THREADKILLER!

By wisper on Tuesday, February 28, 2006 - 08:16 pm:

    well, it IS pretty shocking. I kept thinking the list would end and then.....more shoes.....

By agatha on Tuesday, February 28, 2006 - 08:38 pm:

    I think I have a tich of OCD. There were more, but I got rid of them.

By agatha on Wednesday, March 1, 2006 - 02:49 am:

    I don't know if anyone noticed, but Kelly Pickler was wearing a pair of these shoes on American Idol tonight. Heaven help us!

    That's right, I just admitted to watching American Idol. Commence with the dissing.

By kazu on Wednesday, March 1, 2006 - 10:54 am:

    I had a dream I was on American Idol last night singing with an old college friend and my mother was one of the judges and we were terrible but simon just ignored us.

    Sem and I watch the first couple episodes of the season, when everyone is hilariously terrible and Simon is mean.

By Dougie on Wednesday, March 1, 2006 - 11:13 am:

    I started watching American Idol, but couldn't deal with it, so I switched to to PBS and watched a show called Quest for Sea about Newfoundlanders trying to make a living by catching cod, and then caught the 2nd half of a documentary about Franklin's and Amundsen's quest for the Northwest Passage.

By kazu on Wednesday, March 1, 2006 - 11:30 am:

    oh and speaking of annoying wedding things. my mother gave me a CD which has classical music ideas for weddings. She seems to think that I won't actually play *The Imperial March* from the Empire Strikes Back. HA! Anyway, one of the songs they listed was Barber's Adagio for Strings. Didn't they play that in Platoon? Isn't it kind of broody for a wedding?

By Dougie on Wednesday, March 1, 2006 - 11:51 am:

    Yeah, that was in Platoon, most notably when they're flying away in the helicopters and thinking that Willem Dafoe is dead, and then they see him running away from the enemy and getting shot in the back a million times before he dies.

    It's a beautiful piece, but would probably be a buzzkill for the wedding.

    Is the requisite Pachelbel Canon also listed?

By droopy on Wednesday, March 1, 2006 - 12:15 pm:

    is "ride of the valkyrie" listed?

    at my sister's first wedding, a catholic ceremony, they wouldn't let her play the wedding march from "lohengrin" because they said it was pagan. is that on the list?

By kazu on Wednesday, March 1, 2006 - 12:23 pm:

    pachelbel's canon is there. i'm not sure about the others. bach's jesu joy of man's desiring is on there too and I love that, but that feels inapprorpiate for a wedding as well. they played it at my uncle's funeral and it was such a terrible arrangement i wanted to punch the organ player. also, i don't understand the point of playing that song without a trumpet.

    if i don't play the *imperial march* for my wedding march, i will play the last song from A New Hope where they go get their medals. that would also include my cousin barking like chewbacca.

By wisper on Wednesday, March 1, 2006 - 07:00 pm:

    I tried to watch American Idol last night but they've really worn the country thin of available talent. They should make it every 2 years, make us WANT it, but i say that all the time and it's not going to happen. It's just going to keep getting worse. Same as Survivor. Will they ever just let it stop?

    So we watched Walk The Line instead, which i thought included some equally painful singing. I know some will disagree with me on this, but i don't understand why you would have someone else singing in a biopic about a goddamn singer who was known for his unique voice. The recordings exist! Hundreds of hours! Why do i have to listen to Joaquin Phoenix's sub-par impression for 2 hours?
    I can't comprehend this decision. I think it's a little insulting too.

    And the guy playing Elvis did the single worst Elvis i have ever seen :( Everyone and their mom can do a better Elvis than him.

    Good movie though.

By Antigone on Wednesday, March 1, 2006 - 08:35 pm:

    Barber's adagio for a wedding? Christ, it's a piece that expresses indescribable sorrow! Methinks the person who put that in has a very low EQ.

By heather on Wednesday, March 1, 2006 - 09:43 pm:

    i would argue against the idea that american idol was ever any better

    i like to watch the kids sing, but they should really cut all of the boring blonde karaoke singers at the beginning

By sarah on Thursday, March 2, 2006 - 12:12 pm:

    agatha! wow, thanks! that's way beyond the call of duty, but really and truly appreciated. those are some neato shoes. i could do the tommy hilfiger pair. the problem with shoes w/ macrame or cloth is that i tend to destroy them almost instantly.

    and anyway, how do you find this stuff? you always know the cool web sites for clothes. i'm still stuck at ross dress for less.

    if i get married, it's P-Funk down the aisle.

By sarah on Thursday, March 2, 2006 - 12:14 pm:

    hmmm. now i'm thinking the dkny's. those are really something.

By patrick on Thursday, March 2, 2006 - 06:49 pm:

    set sail for cock?

    when brides select horrific dresses for their wedding party, it reaks of insecurity. you have no chance to look pretty than she.

    also, why is figuring skating an olympic sport?

By agatha on Friday, March 3, 2006 - 12:21 am:

    I really don't like shopping, so I do it online. Good job with the shoe selection/weeding. I like the DKNY's too, even though they are way too much money for some hemp and string.

    Did anyone watch American Idol this week? I need your help making fun of the contestants.

By sarah on Friday, March 3, 2006 - 11:46 am:

    well, it's actually called the Olympic Games, not Olympic Sports.

    this is why the olympics also includes curling, for example. it's obviously not a sport, it's a game, requiring skill and strategy, if not athletic ability (besides being able to kneel and glide on ice at the same time).

    if there's olympic curling, i'm not sure why there's not olympic bridge, or olympic billiards, but i guess that's where the historical reference comes in.

By heather on Friday, March 3, 2006 - 05:17 pm:

    i did watch it [american idol] just now

    lots of badness

    why do they let the person who lost sing again? more torture for both the singer and the audience? hurray for tivo and not having to watch what you don't want to.

    i felt sorry for that kid after they talked him up and then compared him to chicken little.

By Dlougie on Friday, March 3, 2006 - 05:41 pm:

    I don't really like any of the girls. I like the gray-haired guy, but if doesn't control his Ray Charles jerk to the side tic and his "Whooo's" when he's singing, I think that'll hurt him. A little of that stuff goes a long way. Also, the rocker guy is good, and the guy Elliott who sang Moody's Mood for Love did an incredible rendition of it. Yeah, ditto for tivo heather.

    Curling's fun to watch -- what are those brooms made of on the business end? Are they chammies or bristles or what? I gather they can actually move the stone's trajectory by how much they sweep in front of it. And where does one learn to curl? Are there such things as curling rinks?

    "Why do i have to listen to Joaquin Phoenix's sub-par impression for 2 hours?" I haven't seen it yet, but maybe they tried and the lip-synching didn't work out? I've also heard from friends that they thought he did a good job, so I'll have to check it out.

By heather on Friday, March 3, 2006 - 05:57 pm:

    that's exactly how i feel about the gray haired guy, like it was fun but now it's getting annoying.

    elliot is pretty great, but for me he's really hard to look at and i feel bad about that. is it his teeth? i dunno, but i'm sure that if he wins he will look more and more cleaned up as time passes and that sucks too.

By sarah on Monday, April 17, 2006 - 10:35 am:

    okay, so i'm finally ready to admit to you people, but only because i was back in michigan last week and we all couldn't help but make jokes and laugh about it.

    Bucky Covington is my cousin.

    my great grandmother's maiden name is Covington and they're all from the southeast.

    this is kind of sick, but when Bucky got voted off, one of my cousins sent an email out to everyone that read:


    I can't bear to be the one to inform you of this despite the fact that this may have been anticipated.

    It appears as though your cousin Bucky (The Buckster, Buckmaster, HeavyB, Thebuckinator, IceB... etc.) has been eliminated from American Idol.

    Life is about choices. And Bucky apparently may have made a poor one when he opted to sing a rendition or Queens "Fat Bottom Girls". He should take comfort in knowing that he did his best, and we can only wonder if things would have been different had George Strait sang "I've Got Big Balls"...


    such talent in my bloodline! i can see from here how green you all are from envy!

By patrick on Monday, April 17, 2006 - 02:50 pm:

    im a bubble, who's Bucky Covington?

    (i mean, i get it, but my point being, does anyone watch that show?)

By agatha on Monday, April 17, 2006 - 08:26 pm:

    I DO. I actually liked Bucky, with his Torrette's-like tic and all.

By wisper on Monday, April 17, 2006 - 10:52 pm:

    I'm done watching idol, but i'm sure i would have been quite excited.
    His profile states that he sang "Fat Bottomed Girls" on Queen night (had i known they were doing a Queen night i would have watched the shit out of it!) and that's always the song i would sing if i had to sing a Queen song to a mass tv audience.

    Of course it's much cuter when a girl is singing it ;)
    Get on your bikes and ride.

By patrick on Tuesday, April 18, 2006 - 12:47 pm:

    agatha...what are you doin to your brain???

By wisper on Wednesday, April 19, 2006 - 12:40 am:

    Hey so i checked out American Idol tonight after 2(?) seasons of avoiding it. Yay standards! These people seem all really sub-par. I think Ace will win, he can sing but it's mostly for the teenage girl vote.

    That little black chick is the worst they've ever had as far as black chicks go. Standards are made for black chicks to sing. Trying to out sing a black chick on standard songs is like trying to out sing a white guy on country songs- it just can't be done. But this chick fucked it up and i can't imagine how. Disgraceful.
    Imagine Fantasia singing a Billie Holiday song? The auditorium would set on fire! When a black chick is singing an old standard you should be weeping and clawing yourself over the perfection.

    Who is that troll? Elliot? He disgusts me. Sweet merciful crap he sang my favorite Queen song on Queen night. Maybe it's good that i missed it. He is a nasty mess. I can't even look at him.

    Oh, Kellie, you generic blonde. You southern clone. Those bright empty eyes and yellow locks are the reason my sister has been dying her hair brown since she was 13. OMG but my shoes are sooo cute! Shut up.

    Taylor Hicks....just no.

    I look at Katharine and i see a commercial for Crest White Strips. I expect her to be playing Belle in some stage version of Beauty and the Beast. Nothing special. Nothing new. Very marketable. She might be 2nd.

    Hi I'm Chris check out my band Disturbed- Lite!

    Yeah it's Ace all the way.

By droopy on Wednesday, April 19, 2006 - 11:26 pm:

    sometimes i catch the end of american idol while waiting for "house" to come on.

    maybe that's what distracted me last night while i was trying to get from my wheelchair onto the couch. my chair, which an unsafe piece of shit, toppled forward. i landed on the side of the couch and then to the floor, onto my non-weight bearing legs. i swear i heard a crack. i pulled myself onto the couch and watched "house". my leg hurt a little, but it always does.

    i woke up this morning and my whole left leg was swollen. you can even tell when i'm wearing pants - it's weird, one like a twig and one like a log. people at worked freaked out. my boss even had me put an ice pack on it.

    it's still swollen, though. if it's still like this tomorrow, i'll go to the emergency room or something.

    i had to do a search for who bucky covington is. i can kind of see the family resemblance, sarah.

By sarah on Thursday, April 20, 2006 - 09:56 am:


    why are you going to wait!? you should just have someone take you today. there's no sense in taking any chances. just because you can't really feel it doesn't mean it can't be dangerous to just let it go.

    you worry me.

    (and ouch. but actually, now that i really look at him, i guess i could see it...)

By patrick on Thursday, April 20, 2006 - 05:10 pm:


    droop wants gangrene.

By droopy on Thursday, April 20, 2006 - 08:14 pm:

    still swollen this morning. went to the emergency room this afternoon (around one o'clock), just got back (around seven). i fractured my knee. they put me in splint, gave me some vicodin, and sent me home. i have to see an orthopedic guy named milne (comforting name, winnie-the-pooh and all that) next week. on the way home i got some japanese take-out, so i'm all set.

By patrick on Friday, April 21, 2006 - 11:58 am:

    man, i gotta say, the mass use of vicodins as pain relief is a sham. that shit doesnt work. what happened to good ole percocets/darvocets ?

By sarah on Friday, April 21, 2006 - 12:49 pm:

    yeah. percoset is the only real pain killer. vicodin just makes you a little high and nauseated.

    i love japanese take out.

By sarah on Friday, April 21, 2006 - 12:50 pm:

    oh uh, got distracted by talk of drugs and food.

    sorry about your knee, droopy. but i'm glad you got it checked out. let us know how you're doing.

By droopy on Friday, April 21, 2006 - 01:51 pm:

    you're both right - i was completely unimpressed by vicodin. besides, i'm not actually in any pain (which is why it took me two days to go to a doctor) and i only took the prescription because they kept offering it to me. i didn't bother to take any when i got home. it was only until i found myself in bed at 3am, a little hot and unable to sleep that i took one. i got out of bed (do you know what a bitch it is to get around on a wheelchair with a leg in a splint and you live alone?), turned on my overhead fan, and popped a vicodin. there was no particular effect i could feel, except that i felt a little more relaxed. i started reading an agatha christie novel (set in iraq). finally, when I looked over at my window and saw daylight, i turned over to sleep.

    i guess i had such romantic notions about vicodin because of: (a) the legendary vicodin hounds, and (b) that's what house (the hugh laurie character) is supposed to be addicted to.

    will see milne on tuesday morning. i have no idea what he's going to tell me. i never did find out exactly which part of the knee was broken, except that the radiologist told me that my patella was fine and that she'd never seen a knee broken like this before.

By sarah on Friday, April 21, 2006 - 02:47 pm:

    yikes. that what they said about my shoulder. i'm glad you're not in any pain at least.

    do you think they'll do surgery or give you a cast or what? let us know what milne says.

    also, seriously dear, why don't you a call a friend to come stay at your place for a night or two to help you out?

By heather on Friday, April 21, 2006 - 02:53 pm:

    they make me a little euphoric, i was thinking of begging for some for going on job interviews- don't think that would go over very well.

    it didn't do anything for pain, however, 4 to 6 advil do the trick.

By wisper on Friday, April 21, 2006 - 05:44 pm:

    droopy, can i ask you some absolutely stupid questions about being in a wheelchair?

By droopy on Friday, April 21, 2006 - 07:00 pm:

    sure. but there's no telling when i'll be around to answer it.

    i'm hoping that - at the very worst - i'll get outpatient surgery and a cast or something. but i don't know.

    i don't like people hanging around my apartment for too long. it cramps my style.

By Cat on Friday, April 21, 2006 - 07:19 pm:

    I hope you get hot nursing.

    People will probably presume your cast is the reason for the wheelchair and you'll be offered condolences by perfect strangers.

By agatha on Friday, April 21, 2006 - 10:47 pm:

    Ace is gone. I liked him for about ten seconds when he sang Father Figure early on in the competition, but ultimately he sucked donkey dick. I appreciated your thoughtful review, wisper, even though you were mistakenly wowed by Ace and thought Elliott was a troll. My feelings about Elliott are akin to my feelings about the quiet, smart, interesting yet unattractive boy in high school that everyone picked on. I root for him every week, even though he looks like a stroke victim with his half-collapsed-like face. Plus, his name is Elliott Yamin! Don't you want someone with the name Yamin to win American Idol for once? It's so beautifully random!

    Dr oop, you need to stop being so fucking stoic. Let somebody take care of you while you're laid out, for crimony's sake.

    On a TOTALLY unrelated note, does anyone recall the avatar making website thingy that we were all playing around with several years ago? They looked like this...

    HOW CAN I MAKE ONE AGAIN? It's for my final capstone portfolio website, wherein I somehow prove that I am worthy of a Master's in Library Science degree because of all the hard work I have done in the past three years. That was sarcasm, in case it wasn't obvious. I have this deluded fantasy that putting a small whimsical likeness of me on the website will cause the heavens to look upon me kindly and give me my frickin diploma, already.

    Alternately, wisper could make a cartoon likeness of me, and I could pay her back in a way that was somehow agreeable to her. Whut?

    Have I told you lately that I love you? Tbone wins the grand prize for finding EXACTLY what I was looking for, ding ding ding! Wisper comes in a close second with a fine selection of other avatar creation sites and fun for all sorabjiites. I think we should all make some and post them on Tbone's picksha pages. I've already made myself a Lego likeness that was frighteningly accurate.

    i think i still have my stortrooper around somewhere.

    she'd look different if i built her today. which i won't.

By TBone on Monday, April 24, 2006 - 06:46 pm:

    Yeah, I still have mine.

    I just wanted to say that I am letting my attendants
    choose their own dresses.

    And my *dress code* is going to prohibit jeans and
    shorts for anyone over the age of 7 (in honor of heather).

    Also, we're getting married in a barn.

    I'm not going to do stuff like this on a regular basis.
    Although I may occasionally ask for advice or opinions.

By Karla on Friday, April 28, 2006 - 11:46 am:

    What a great idea to let them pick their own dresses. Are you going to ask them to get a similar color? Please do like TBone and post your wedding pix so we can all see.

    It's all about picking out your own dresses within a colour theme.

    What is with forcing bridesmaids to wear ugly dresses, anyway? I tend to think worse of a bride for humiliating her friends and forcing them to wear silly overpriced dresses in order to make her look better.

    What kind of barn, kazu? An emu barn?

By wisper on Friday, April 28, 2006 - 12:49 pm:

    i like to hear people making sane wedding choices :)

By kazu on Friday, April 28, 2006 - 02:05 pm:

    This is the place

    Click on Smith Barn.

    What else?

    I'm thinking of a pale, butter-like yellow for the bridesmaid dresses. I want to carry yellow and purple flowers. I have more than a year to plan this so I'll probably change my mind a million times.

    Food: New England Clambake/BBQ.

    I don't think we'll be able to get away with not posting pictures.

    I went to a wedding once where the bride said that if anyone dressed up she was going to be pissed. I don't know if that was because she really wanted it to be laid back or because she didn't want any attention deflected from herself. In this particular case, I'm leaning toward the former. Personally, I would prefer not to be the center of attention. I think I'm going to wear a burka.

    I really don't understand that kind of insecurity. I've never been to a wedding where the bride wasn't the center of attention at least most of the time.

    "Food: New England Clambake/BBQ."

    bold combination.

    i wish the new stortroopers had more choices. if you're a girl, the hats are really lame - no baseball hats or cowboy hats. and there's only one dog.

    Cat is still with us,yes:)

By droopy on Wednesday, May 3, 2006 - 02:33 am:

    wow, i didn't notice that. hi cat.

    my cat, my feline, has been trippin' all night. earlier in the evening she was at her bowl (which i put on a chair because of ants) eating, and she suddenly jumped and ran off as though she'd been squirted with water or something. then she came back and started nervously to look and sniff around. apparently, some critter scared her. finally she wandered off. later i found her in my bedroom sitting in the corner looking nervous and pathetic. every little shadow or noise spooked her.

    i'm hoping that it's just geckos. every year, when it starts getting hotter, i start finding baby geckos in the apartment; staying out of the heat, i guess. you'll find them on the walls or who knows where.

    my knee had a distal fracture, by the way. i don't quite know what that means, but the doctor showed me an x-ray of my knee, pointed to some part of it, and said "this should be there." i'm wearing a big knee brace that keeps my leg locked in a 90 angle.

By Czarina on Thursday, May 4, 2006 - 09:16 am:

    Droop, sorry to hear of your mishap. What a bitch to have to get around with the brace.But glad you had it taken care of.

    I have a thought. Why not get a clapper? You know, those annoying "seen-on-tv" things? You said you had to get up to turn on your ceiling fan, and this way you could save all the hassle of getting up, and just "clap-clap" and a lovely tropical breeze would be coming your way!

    All right, its true, I've always secretly wanted one.
    I can't help myself, I love that cheesy as-seen-on-tv crap.I know most of it doesn't work, but that doesn't stop me from coveting it.

By Czarina on Thursday, May 4, 2006 - 09:37 am:

    Ooooh, and congrads to Kazu and Sem! I love the barn setting.

    Try not to stress, but thats easier said than done.

    I was amazed, a girl I work with is planning her wedding, and was furious that a friend of hers [who was also planning her own wedding],was "stealing" all of her ideas. Colors, themes, even having her wedding a couple of weeks before my co-worker.

    My co-worker is livid with anger.I now see this co-worker in another light.

    As she was bright red in the face and sputtering and stuttering with her anger at her friend, she tells me she's going to *confront* her about this unthinkable mis-deed.

    As I sat there appalled at her behavior, she finally asks me what I think of the situation.

    I responded with, "Well when I go to a wedding, I'm there to celebrate my friends day of joy, not to critique their decorations."

    Not the answer she wanted to hear. But now I don't have to hear anymore of her wedding woes.

    Sometimes, honesty is the best policy.
