If you are that wonderful bunch of *cuddlies* who googled, and I MOTHERFUCKING QUOTE, "every woman is a whore and every whore has her price," I have one thing to say to you: How the hell did you find me? I'm too rich for your blood. Unless you own several Japanese restaurants. I kid, I kid. Having a hell of a day. Still up to my eyeballs in assignments.
I have EXCITING NEWS! Well, exciting for me, anyway. I was invited to join mu.nu. I will be transferring over to them in the next couple of days. As soon as my brain stops spinning around. When I get there, you can check me out at: http://hurlnecklace.mu.mu. Don't go there, yet! It is WHITE, and BARREN. I'm working on it. If any of you know how to fiddle around with MOVABLE TYPE, DIVULGE, DIVULGE!
We'll see y'all in between here and there, and on the other side.

Marriage Vows 101
I received a wedding invitation today. The groom is the little brother of a boy I used to be very good friends with. I dated the big brother when he was 19, and I was 21 so...minus the 2, carry the 5...EONS AGO. I met this kid when he was 14. And now he's getting married. Because his big brother is no longer with us, I have various talks with TGTB (The Groom To Be), about love and life in general. When I got the invitation today, I started thinking about what they should really say during wedding vows. Instead of all that love, honor, cherish...all those flowery words...that bring to mind frilly aprons and pillow fights, I think the minister/pastor/rabbi/friend (Insert appropriate officiant here) should be truthful. I mean, they make you go to all that marriage counseling...they should have a fairly accurate take on what the people are like.
Maybe not. D.H. and I got married at the JOP (Almost free!free!free!), and it was a lovely ceremony. The judge spouted beauty about circles and two lives intertwined as one...Perhaps she really should have said something like this:
JOP: Do you, D.H., promise to love this woman despite the fact that she will bug you ceaselessly about her pet peeves? Do you promise to love her even though every time you leave anything open (lotion cap, cabinet door, etc.) she will come to you and passively agressively ask you why you don't like to close anything? Do you promise to love her despite the fact that she will only like your cooking about 85% of the time? She will also become ridiculously engrossed in school and work, leaving no time for laundry, dishes or otherwise extra-curricular activities. She will harp on you endlessly about your bad habits but conveniently forget hers. She will also spend money, hate golfing, ask you if she looks fat repeatedly, hate you when you tell the truth, and complain that she feels lonely when you join classes. She will be bitchy 10 - 30 days of the month, and threaten death by paper cuts if you ask her if she needs help. She will be overly sensitive, cry more than she should, and exercise less than she should. She will also admit to being a hypocrite and still only notice your faults. IF you still think that you can love her after all of this, then please say, "I Do."
I think something like that should cover it. It might help to lower the divorce rate! Marriage is for life! Maybe I should become ordained so I can perform my own weddings.
Happy Wedding Bride and Groom To BE! Much love, hugs, and kisses to you both.
