Wedding Fever - Nothing to See Here

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

We attended lyssabits and careg's (quite beautiful) wedding today (ur, for Saturday values of "today"). Just got back a short time ago. It was cool to see lianthe, lyssabits, lessachu and Yar (LJ unknown if any!) and fun meeting various other cool people, including lianthe and lyssabits's father and mother (though I actually met her this past Tuesday also). We are full of Chinese food. Oh, hey, and got to try abalone, so my own wedding won't be the first time I try it. =) That seems like a good thing. It was really interesting. Much meatier than any other molusc I've tried. Not half bad. They had the coolest wedding favours -- USB thumb drives apparently (I haven't checked yet, as we just got back) containing engagement photos. So frickin' geeky. So frickin' cool! I think I have wedding-favour envy...

Oh, right. I caught the garter! ... which lianthe and lyssabits's mother then told me I should wear on my sleeve, so I did (actually, still am, since I'm still in my formalwear). It means I'll be the next to be married, as I understand it, which is ... well, nice confirmation, since we are getting married soon. :-)

lianthe caught the bouquet, so I guess she's destined to be next! Heehee!

On the topic of our own wedding, we sent out the majority of the invitations over the past couple of days. Finally got them back from the printers and did huge amounts of work getting them ready to send out, but it was worth it. That much closer! :)

When we got back from the aforementioned wedding this evening, we checked our mailbox, and we got our very first RSVP card back! Woot! A response in the affirmative. Yay! Our friends Steve and Kim. Yay!

Oh, well, sort of the second. The first was handed to me about an hour after I handed it to one of its recipients (crankyfool), but was then begged back to show the other recipient, his fiancée!.

We received our invitation today! :)

I'm going to be a pain, though, and wait until the last minute... I'm hoping there will be a business trip out there around then. Or I'm hoping to find a cheap flight.

I bet that when you asked for my address, you didn't think I would really come, did you? :)

Woot! I'm glad you received your invitation. :-) I've been slightly concerned about USPS going, "What the heck? Gold on red? We can't read that easily."

BTW, JetBlue looks to have fares like this for 2 adults from BOS:
        Airfare/Adult  	 	$138.60 USD  	
	Taxes/Adult (details) 	$20.70 USD 	
	Subtotal/Adult 		$159.30 USD 	
	X 2 Adults 		$318.60 USD
Obviously halve the last line (or just read the second-last) for 1 person. I don't know if that's what you think of as cheap, but I'd say it's pretty impressive. :)

That was, BTW, flying out here on Saturday Nov 18th and flying back on Monday Nov 19th (arr. Tuesday Nov 20th, 5am-ish -- all JetBlue's cross-continental flights are red-eye going east).

My goodness, that's cheap! I doubt that Andy would be joining me, however (which does make it even cheaper!) I still have a hard time explaining the irc connection to him.

Yeah, it is cheap. I think when I flew to Boston mine was $99 each way. That price is even better. Quite bizarre. Heck, it's cheaper than flying to Seattle from here. Heck, it's comparable to flying to LA from here. It's kind of insane. That and, well, I absolutely loved JetBlue the one time I flew with them.

Am I actually going to know anyone at this shindig of yours?

Hm. Me, irtluhc, maybe (both in terms of "maybe he'll be there" and in terms of "maybe you know him") wizzu, maybe (in terms of knowing her, and in terms of attendance) Karina (was "Firefly" on DALnet for some time early on), maybe (attendance unknown) Morpher (maeglin73), maybe (attendance unknown, and not sure if you know him) Davros (shigeru). Lots of maybes (for various reasons), not many definites.
