So on Saturday I missed the wedding of two of my best friends. Why, you ask? Here’s why – because I thought it started at five (like all the other weddings I went to this summer), and while I was getting ready I had the bright idea to double-check the invitation to make sure I knew which church to go to, and suddenly I noticed the “please join us at 3:00 in the afternoon” and almost passed straight out. It was 3:40. I missed the wedding. I am an idiot.
I did go to the reception and explained what had happened and everything was fine, and I’m mostly over it now although I’m still kind of upset when I think about it. It was an honest mistake, but still – idiot. Please tell me that this isn’t the dumbest thing you’ve ever heard of a wedding guest doing.
Hmm, that last sentence feels grammatically awkward, but I’m leaving it the way it is.
List of stuff I’ve been listening to lately and sometimes mean to comment about but never remember (note: it’s not necessarily new stuff, just stuff I’m listening to):
- Badly Drawn Boy, One Plus One is One – especially the title track
- Beck, Sea Change
- The Killers, Hot Fuss
- Nada Surf’s song “Blonde on Blonde” from Let Go
- Future Soundtrack for America, especially “Move On” by Mike Doughty, the Old 97s cover of “Northern Line,” and the OK Go cover of “This Will Be Our Year.”
- “Maybe Tomorrow,” from the Stereophonics album You Gotta Go There to Come Back
- “Vertigo,” U2’s new single from the upcoming How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb
A paragraph of weird odd unconnected things:
I’ve been craving chocolate milk lately. I’m enamored with all things pumpkin and have been looking for pumpkin things everywhere I go. I’m also craving new pajamas but I can’t find any I like and I’m quite picky about my jammies. I had a Canon Rebel GII on layaway and finally went and picked it up and have been taking lots of pictures that I can’t wait to share if they turn out well. The leaves are turning. I got a parking ticket that I intend to contest. Right now there are four peanut butter M&Ms (2 orange, 1 yellow, 1 red) on my desk that I don’t want. When I got that parking ticket I thought it was a ticket for my expired inspection sticker, but it wasn’t and I went and got my car inspected the next day and I passed. I should probably set up EFT for my bills since I sometimes forget to pay them on time, but for some reason EFT seems like too much of a commitment and I’m afraid to use it.
It’s nice and a little chilly today. I should go get some lunch.
