but at least they are here and they are awesome. and? though we painstakingly proofed the guest list about 7 million and 47 times before we sent them off to be printed, we still ended up with a Mr. & Mrs. _____ and were informed that yep, they're divorced now.
can't i just cross the non-family half off?? oh well. another envelope down. that's a bitch.

who even KNEW there were that many to choose from!?!? at any rate, it was a lot of fun and scarily, may have only just whet my appetite for more sparkly treasures. though, after this gig, i'm pretty sure all my presents will come from a bubble gum machine or a cereal box.
oh well!!!! i can't wait for them to get here. except. i will have to make tom hide them (obviously in a theft-proof safe, for all you robbers out there) on me so i don't just wear mine around the house. HOW CAN YOU NOT?!?!
sigh! 67 days to go!

DEAR PUZZLED: Please waste no more time feeling offended. The family who issued the wedding invitation is obviously grossly ignorant about the basic rules of etiquette. According to "Emily Post's Etiquette" (17th Edition), when issuing wedding invitations, "any mention of gifts or listing of gift registries is unacceptable."I am sure you dealt with the solicitation you received as you would any other. Just be glad they didn't have your bank account number, or you would have found enclosed with your invitation a notice stating that your account had already been debited $125 to cover the cost of your dinner.

was very nice, but i'm still so tired. i guess i'm overtired. because i have to get up even earlier than normal tomorrow to bring keli to the vet to get her teeth cleaned. (don't ask.) then off to work for a 9am meeting. yawn. i want our invitations to just GET HERE ALREADY and i still haven't sent jen, christine and erin their dresses yet. i am committed to sending them out on the way to work on thursday. and if, yet again, i fail, i'll send them on saturday morning. jeez, actually GOING to an office takes up a lot of the day. (tom is totally rolling his eyes at me. or he would be if he hadn't been asleep for an hour and a half already.)
and ps? only 4 cat pukes to clean up after leaving them alone (not TOTALLY alone, they had becky and mel feeding them all weekend) for four days. these guys do NOT tolerate us leaving well. and lemme tell you... i do not tolerate cleaning up 4 cat pukes at 2am after travelling for 8 hours and needing to go to sleep so i can get up at 6am for work very well. but at least one of them was on the kitchen floor so that was easy to clean. thanks, simon. you're a gem.
ok, peace out.

so yesterday was my LAST DAY AT TOWERS PERRIN. i haven't really posted much about the job sitch because, well, it seemed like it was jinxy to do that. so today, i have the day off and am heading to hammonasset (yeah, i am way to lazy to look up the correct spelling) with becky for a bit before i come home and wait for the dresses to get here. that's right, the bridesmaid dresses will arrive today. know how i know? well, first, i've been stalking them every five seconds on ups.com, but also, ups left me a lovely automated message last night confirming delivery between 8am and 7pm today. oh ok, i'll definitely wait by the door for ELEVEN HOURS. hi, leave me a post it and i'll come pick them up this afternoon. ok, so last night i had the following dream (i'm lazy and running late for becky's so i'm just c/p an email i wrote to her):
So the dresses are coming today "between 8am and 7pm" and someone needs to sign for them, so likely I won't be here and I'll get a sticky to pick them up somewhere later... but anyway, I just woke up from a dream that I got them and they were irridescent brown... so when they hit the light, there was blue and green... which would be fine except that doesn't really jive with the "fall theme" so in my head I was scrambling to change the flowers, the invitation colors -- basically everything. Ah, my first wedding-related nightmare. I'll be over in a little bit!!!
ps, i know i just totally jinxed myself. ok, one more thing then i'm off. like an irridescent prom dress...
so monday i start work at LEGO?! i'll be producing their club and play sites. how freakin cool is that??? hopefully very cool. the office is so cool that i'll sneak attack cell pics and post them when i start. oh yes, i am so going to be that dorky new girl.
BEACH TIME BABY!
