Shug Avery says…

“I’s married now! I said I’s married now."

I really don’t know why I don’t have that movie in my collection. I do like to quote from it quite often.

Anyways, I can’t believe it’s been just over 2 weeks since CraigiePoo and I got married and I haven’t posted about it. It was all awesome. Our dresses were gorgeous. The venue was beautiful. The food (the little that I got to enjoy) was delicious. It’s amazing how much effort goes into planning a party that only lasts 5 hours from start to finish.

I woke up that morning actually feeling a bit nauseous. I don’t know if it was from the nerves or if it was from the weird dream that was playing in my head just before I woke up. In the dream some greasy dude was talking crazy about how Gavin Newsome and Barack Obama weren’t real Democrats and were ruining the country. Then he would bite into a strawberry, vomit it back (yes, you read that correctly) and then hand it to me. I woke up on the greasy dude’s third upchuck and ran to the bathroom. I just knew I was about to vomit. It was hours before my stomach settled down.

After we left Craigie’s hair appointment (I even got my hair cleaned up for free) we arrived at the hotel a little after 12 and then hung out for a few hours before the 2 photographers arrived at 4pm. It’s real hard trying to act normal when you got somebody following you around with a camera. About 5:45pm CraigiePoo, myself, and our wedding party were packed into the hotel shuttle on our way to the wedding venue, which was less than 5 minutes away by car.

With the exception of the florist misreading the invoice and only providing us with one bridesmaid’s bouquet instead of the three we order, everything was as we had vision. As for the missing two bouquets, my new sister-in-law managed to make the one bouquet into three smaller ones and the florist refunded our money.

I really don’t remember much about the actual ceremony. The one thing I can remember is smiling like an idiot the entire time. I couldn’t stop cheesing. CraigiePoo decided to surprise me and sang part of her vows. Someone how I managed to get to read my vows with passing out.

After the ceremony there was picture taking, more picture taking, and still more picture taking before we were announced. The night was so much fun. We danced and danced and danced for hours. I could feel the sweat just dripping off of me. Sometime around 10:30pm we were back at the hotel exhausted and hungry. I think we both only managed to eat a few bites of food the entire night. It was the best day of my life.

Now, that 10 months of preparation and planning have come and gone, I have no idea what we’re going to do to fill up our time.

One thing comes to mind: BABIES!!!

Stay tuned

Statistically speaking

I finished my Introduction to Statistics course three days ago. I’m glad it’s over, but I won’t be able to do my dance of joy until I know what my final grade is. I need a “C” grade. I think my primary school will accept a “D” as passing, but I would prefer the higher grade since I’m applying to graduate schools (more information on more post-BA decisions in another post) in the next few months. I need to maintain a 3.0 GPA. I really don’t understand the purpose of taking any math beyond pre-algebra. I’ve been saying since 1989, when I entered ninth grade and took my first algebra class, “when am I ever going to use this in the real world?”

And if I do need to use it, that’s when I would just pay somebody to do the math for me.
