In conclusion, [livejournal.com profile] monkeybobert's wedding was lovely and sweet, and she looked amazing and I kind of looked a bit Mad Men-esque with poofy fancy hair that somehow survived the completely insane wind that made all of our outside pictures...interesting. And I finally figured out what to say.

Saturday night I faced one of my biggest fears when I got magically sick from something (probably some strange perfect storm combination of wedding food, more red wine than I usually drink, stress, and earlier in the week stomach evils) and survived. You may laugh, but seriously, I have spent at least 20 years being afraid that the culmination of nausea would somehow negate the entirety of my life prior to that point. Which it apparently didn't, although it was still somewhat psychologically scarring. My mom was all "Look, you didn't die! :D" And I am staying away from red wine and wedding buffets from now on.

And now, after a month of moving my store and working all the time, having guests, and doing wedding things, my life returns to relative normal, and I actually don't have anything I really need to do. Uh, except STBB. >.> Yeah.

Anyway, I have a backlog of delicious memes that I've been wanting to do, so MEMETIME STARTS NOW GO.

From [livejournal.com profile] robley:

Comment to this entry and I'll give you a letter. List ten things, people, places, beings, thoughts, feelings, that you love that begin with that letter and then post that list on your journal.



1. Wisconsin

Okay so we have a horrific governor of satanic evil, and a lot of the state is really bizarre, but this is my hood, dawg. And I do love it. There's cheese and corn and rock formations and snow. I can't really imagine growing up anywhere else, and while I like to think that maybe again someday I'll live somewhere else for a while, this will probably always be home.

2. Wheeking/Wheeting

The sound guinea pigs make. I love that sound, even when it actually means they're shouting at me to get them food. It's officially called "wheeking," but before I knew that I always called it "wheeting," and I'm sticking to it. I like to call the girls "wheety bees."

3. Wigmonsters

Uh...they're from the book "John Dies at the End" by David Wong. They have three eyes and a scorpion tail and wear toupees and have lots of baby hands, and they're kind of evil but also like to drink soda and eat sandwiches. I dunno, I'm just a fan. [livejournal.com profile] infinityduck and I have emoticon'd them as such: //oo>o\

4. "Wet Hot American Summer" (movie)

My default comedy recommendation. There is really nothing about this movie that isn't fantastic.

5. Wisconsin Dells

It's basically a tourist trap of waterparks and kitsch but I kind of love it. It's a beautiful area and it has a torture museum and an alligator farm.

6. "Washingtonians, The" (movie)

It's this short horror movie about how this girl finds a note from George Washington that's like "I like to eat children and also here is a fork made out of a femur" and there's now a whole society of people who dress up in powdered wigs and costumes and cannibalize everything. It's hilarious and bad and amazing. From the back of the case: "...this gruesome tale about the discovery of a Revolutionary War artifact that proves George Washington's famed wooden teeth hungered for more than just liberty."

7. "War of the Coprophages," (X-Files episode)"

"Her name is Bambi?"

8. Wolverines

Did you know they're the largest member of the weasel family? And they're smelly and bitey and rahr-y and eat all the animals all the time. I have a plush one and the tag says something about how they like to jump on their prey from trees. Wolverines are big fuzzy claw-jerks and they're fantastic. Also, Hugh Jackman. It's all good.

9. Waffles

I LOVE WAFFLES. I also just like the word "waffles." My wireless signal has been named "Waffles" for about four years now. And kikipups like waffles and [livejournal.com profile] jou and I have matching waffle key-toppers for our keys to each other's houses. Waffles mean many lovely and beautiful things to me.

10. "When You Were Young," The Killers

One of my very special Chase songs. And it reminds me of my second year of grad school. It just...there's a lot of feelings.


And finally, the coffee shop upstairs has the very best early gray/London fog tea lattes I've ever had. I am drinking one right now out of my Charlotte tumber and it is fantastic. So now every morning starts like this:



...except that they're really nice and they like me, so they will take all my money, but I won't tell them to shut up.

Thank you, I'm glad too! It was still not the most thrilling experience of my life. ;)

Oh yah! maybe a letter too?

I'm glad you had fun although not glad you managed to get the mysterious stomach plague of death. But hey! You survived! ♥?

... london fog latte? i don't understand, is tar and smog involved somehow?

(ps: letter me bb, letter me good)

I survived! I still don't know what happened! I just hope it never happens again!

MMM DELICIOUS TAR IS DELICIOUS. And really it's just a fancy name for an earl gray tea latte with vanilla. I dunno why it's called a "London Fog," apparently the name is copyright to some place in Canada. Those Canadians.

YOUR LETTER IS L.

I would very much like to see these pictures of your battles with the windy wedding!

Also, I'm glad you didn't keel over, and that life is returning to some sense of normalcy and they didn't accidentally package you away in one of the boxes. Mine gets busier because our time is winter holiday time and I'm scrambling to organize all the product that has arrived because everyone else just seems to want to throw it into a corner in the basement, but then it won't be found when we want it....

Should find out soon if I'm heading to Wisconsin for Thanksgiving week. Probably won't be traveling to Madison, but if you have an evening or a day, we could meet in the Dells or Portage? That's about an hourish between. I'll let you know if my end is a go.

Gimmie a letter, please!

Apparently it'll be a few months, sadly, the photographer is really backed up cuz it was the end of the wedding season. But they'll be fun.

And yeah, actually we are finally slowly down and not scrambling all the time. Regardless, I am still super sick of this job and all the time I had to put in, and I really want to take a few days off but my boss basically said she doesn't want to cover for me. Uuugh.

Let me know your future plans!

YOUR LETTER IS M.

I felt that way too for a long time- about the dreadful nausea ends. It is OK! You are indeed still alive and no less awesome for feeling that way.

*GLOMPS*

Very glad to hear the wedding went well otherwise. Oh, free booze. Youz.

*holds onto you* It was scary and traumatic but not as scary and traumatic as it could have been, and now I inhabit this weird twilit zone where I'm like "well now I know if it happens again I won't die but BAWWWW I don't want it to happen again!"

Red wine, I am on to you!

I'm sorry that you got sick, but very glad that you bravely survived unscathed and even made a public and much appreciated appearance at the brunch the next day.

You were a fabulous maid of honor - I'll have to send you the photos that I have, but I'm looking forward to the crazy windy ones from Angie.

Also, waffles?! What does Gretchen call waffles, anyway? We'll never know.

I would have dragged myself to the brunch even if my intestines were coming out! I might not have been a lot of fun, but I would have been there. :F

And you were a beautiful and amazing bride. I actually had a dream the other night, though, where you had like...the worst wedding ever, and your dress was super short and you kept adding bridesmaids at the last minute and the priest (you had a priest this time) called me a bitch in the middle of the ceremony... I'm thinking that in some alternate universe, this is how your wedding played out. I need to try to draw you a picture of your dress, it was pretty ridiculous.

What Gretchen calls waffles will go down as one of the great mysteries of the universe.
