Well, I had a busy wedding filled weekend. On Friday I went to my parents’ house for my wedding shower, which turned out to be a pleasant gathering with some gifts and food and whatnot.
– On Saturday I decided that perhaps we should wait no longer on the whole wedding band issue and went to a jewelry place with Wren (Ethan was at work) and picked out a set. The apparent downside to my procrastination is that the price of gold has gone up dramatically in recent history, so instead of paying $400/oz as we would have a few months ago, we have to pay $600/oz. Suck. Be that as it may, I consider these rings an investment for life, because I don’t plan on getting married again.
– After ring shopping and grabbing a chilled drink with Wren, I headed back home, so I could go to the pet store for some chinny supplies, then waited a bit for Angie to arrive so I could head back up north with her and Beth in tow for my bachelorette party (which was highly inappropriate and equally enjoyable). Angie and I didn’t get back to my apartment until quite late and pretty much went straight to bed.
– On Sunday Ethan slathered my hair with Henna and we hung around the apartment for a few hours while that set, then we went to see Pirates of the Caribbean 2. I probably would have really enjoyed the movie except that by then I was thoroughly exhausted, hadn’t had enough sleep and theaters in the twin cities fill up on opening weekends, so we ended up sitting so close to the screen that I couldn’t see the whole thing and got a horrible pain in my neck. I have decided that by and large, twin cities movie theaters suck. I hate having to sit next to someone I don’t know (especially if they reek of perfume or keep checking their cell phone for missed calls every five seconds). I also don’t care for seats that are too close to the screen so that they are rendered useless, while rendering the persons seated there stiff-necked and uncomfortable. Boo I say.
