Friday: After participating in Blog Like It's the End of the World Day, doomsey
and I went to a party at voidness
' house. There were a lot of zombie references. samcallahan
talking loudly in the bushes and came inside to say, "there's a drunk guy in the bushes. I think you should hit him with a shovel." Something makes me think that either I'm going to get either The Zombie Survival Guide
or a shovel for my birthday this year. Oh...there were also s'mores involved. By the way, the only way I've eaten s'mores is when they're nuked in the microwave. I've never roasted the marshmallow over an open flame before. Yes...it's sacrilege, I know. In my defense, I was a kid at the time and I didn't know any better. That and my parents never lit any bonfires. They were really paranoid about burning the house/backyard down or triggering my asthma.
and I met up with his folks and we all drove out to a wedding in Indiana. The ceremony was at a place in Dyer, Indiana called Meyer's Castle. The grounds were absolutely gorgeous. They also had ponds with albino peacocks and black swans. doomsey
got a couple of pictures and I should really post them when he puts them online. The couple had a mixed Jewish-Catholic ceremony, and they so happened to pick out the rabbi that doomsey
and I were going to use at our ceremony. (Actually, long story short, the rabbi had to bail at the last minute for our wedding because his mother was having surgery in Russia. He got a friend from seminary to replace him. He flew all the way from Kansas City to officiate for our wedding. Then, he flew back again). Their rabbi did an excellent job. Too bad it turned out that he couldn't be at our wedding.
After the ceremony, the guests met up at the hotel while the wedding party took pictures. Since Saturday was knit in public day
and I did a lot of knitting. By the way, I finally finished my "practice sock." I should really take a picture of it and post it. It's wide and it looks it would fit Bigfoot if he had half his feet chopped off. On the other hand, it would make a great sock-puppet.
Sunday: We went to the Allstate Arena for emygination
's graduation. She graduated suma cum laude from DePaul. Getting inside the stadium was a zoo though because the last graduation ran over. Also, when I went to the bathroom, I ended up getting baptized with toilet water. The lady flushed the toilet next to me and it overflowed. It nailed the bottoms of my pants a good one. I had to sit through the whole graduation like that. ¡Qué asco! Fortunately, I got a chance to stop at home and change before dinner.
By the way, this lady
was the key-note speaker at emygination
's graduation. I think that was the best graduation speech I have heard...ever.
On Sunday, I also started coming down with a cold. doomsey
has it too. During dinner, I felt like a complete and utter zombie. Now, I don't feel so much like a zombie, but it sure hurts to talk.
