My roommate rocks. He found someone to take my room, saving me a decent chunk of change.
I didn’t actually get any packing done this weekend. I should be freaking out about it, but I’m not. I have the whole week, plus all of Friday morning to take care of it. I just have to go get some more boxes (liquor store and Office Depot), throw everything in, tape it all up, and go go go!
This weekend’s wedding was fun. The other Twins were all upstate at an old family friend’s wedding, but I went to the chichi NYC wedding instead. PSB and I made some important discovery - I am a stickler for details. Friday night, there was a pre-wedding party in the Village, and PSB told me it was casual. Now, to me, casual means “t-shirt and shorts” - nothing ripped or stinky, but, you know, CASUAL. Alas, PSB had meant “BUSINESS casual”, and I took great pride in being the most underdressed person at the party (but not by much - there were plenty of jeans in the crowd, plus it was so dark you could barely see who you were talking to, let alone what they were wearing).
The actual wedding on Saturday was quite nice - it took place in a lovely loft on 37th St. and 9th Ave. The Moth office could be seen from across the street, so PSB and cohorts made big letters with the bride’s and groom’s names, and put them up in the window, illuminated with el wire and the big heart from the Smooch Dome (thanks Smash and Not That!). They loved it. The food was quite tasty, and I refrained from too much drinking after waking up a bit hung over, then proceeding to have a few bellinis at brunch with PSB, Smash, and Not That.
Holy shit, bellinis are fucking tasty. They blow mimosas out of the water.
I do love the girlie drinks.
Anyway, my other two favorite things from the wedding - 1. playing a game with a friend/party guest where we worked into the conversation as much as humanly possible the phrase “wedding planner”. (The actual wedding planner had been circling around us for the past ten minutes, and he had become a bit smitten.) 2. For PSB and my wedding (date TBD - we’ll get engaged first, and then figure all that out) we are going to play “Hava Nagila”, followed immediately by “Sweet Home Alabama”. (Twin A has suggested a mash-up, which I also think is a great idea).
Finally, a few minutes ago I just (accidentally, I swear) ran my letter opener through the industrial shredder I was unjamming. It was really fucking cool.
