T minus 10

There's a lot of stuff I need to be doing to tie up all the loose ends at work before my long vacation, but I don't really feel like doing any of it. Work is like, totally harshing my buzz right now.*

I've entered the period (e.g. T minus 10 days and counting) when people start asking me How I Am Doing. And the weird thing is, I'm actually doing great. I'm excited about the whole wedding thing. I do still get a shivery feeling all down my spine when I think about that room full of people turning around to stare at me as I walk down the aisle. That crap is scary! But otherwise I think I've adopted a healthy if-they-don't-like-it-they-can-lump-it attitude.**

*Not literally. Although last Christmas one of my coworkers gave me one of those airplane bottles of Baileys, and I still have it in my desk. In case of emergency.

**I say this with love. And also having spent a couple of months freaking out over whether my wedding was going to be too hard on the guests.

So, How Are You Doing?

I kill myself.
You will be lovely and it will be spectacular. I was going to tell you this little tidbit in person but our vacations are overlapping, so here goes:

My friend Wanda got married a few years ago. She is this amazing girl who dresses in all vintage 40s clothes ALL OF THE TIME and she's really sassy. They made a mix of songs for their giveaways at the wedding, and that cd somehow got mixed up with the one that was supposed to be played as she walked down the aisle. So instead of the opening strains of "Moonlight Sonata," Wanda entered to the opening lines of "The Lady is a Tramp." She played it off well, did some hip swaggers and then shouted "Let's try this again!" and ran back to her starting point.

So there's a worse case scenario, and to this day it's one of my favorite wedding memories :)

Ha! Thanks Jen, that's a pretty awesome story. If I don't fall on my face during my trip up the aisle, I will call it a success.
