Ah, Sundays

Friday, I had My Second Fitting of My Dress. The next time I see it, it will be The Day Before The Wedding. I hate to put seeing it again until then, but I have to bring Easily Annoyed Sister along so she can Work The Bustle. I can’t wait to wear it! I am So Excited. I wish I could wear The Dress More Than One Night. Maybe I will wear it on Special Occasions! I have been known to wear More Peculiar Things in my day. In 11th Grade, I made a pact with myself to wear all of my clothes inside out for a full year. And I kept the pact. So, wearing My Wedding Dress for a night out on the town shouldn’t seem that outlandish! Ah, Growing Up In The ‘80s And Getting Away With Wearing Crazy Things.

Saturday, I spent the day watching The Olympic Opening Ceremony on The DVR. As A Theatre Person, I adore Pageantry. Pageants and Parades are The Origins of Theatre Arts and I can’t get enough of The Traditions, Costumes, and Lavishness of such things. Opening Night Ceremonies are The Host Nation’s opportunity to tell us A Story About The Land and The Meaning Of The Games. This Beijing One was Aaaaamazing. Very Clever and Spectacular. I Loved It. What I didn’t Love was The Poor Women of Hungary. They had to march around the stadium in their Period Panties. Quite Unfortunate. Ah, Sad, Unattractive Olympic Uniforms!

Ah, Feh.

Saturday Night, Totally Awesome FiancĂ© went off to his Bachelor Party. I didn’t ask about The Details but I have A Hunch it involved Steaks, Scotch, and Strippers. I stayed home and watched PS I Love You. And then I fell asleep. Totally Awesome FiancĂ© arrived home around 2:30am, smelling like A Bar. I think he had Fun. He told me he got A Lap Dance, but he thought of me the entire time. Ah, Bullshit.

Sunday, I finally finished My Paper Flower Escort Cards!!! I have made 72 Paper Flowers and all I can say is people better be Oooohing and Ahhhhing over them at The Wedding. I wish I could put a sign near them that reads, “These Fucking Flowers took The Bride 72 Hours to make. Love Them.” I still have to attach all of the Table Assignment Leaves and Stuff. But, that didn’t stop me from encouraging a celebration over Delicious Margaritas and Mexican Food. Ah, Sundays.

My brother's girlfriend fully intends to dye her wedding dress black after her wedding and wear it to, among other formal events, the Black and White Ball.
