Lazy Saturday

It’s been a pretty boring weekend so far. Pretty average. GG’s been out all day, first at a paintball bachelor party for our friend Ed, then home to shower and change, then out to dinner with the paintball guys, then off to his show for the night. I’ve been in and out, too. Jess and Rob stopped by earlier because they were in town looking at houses for sale. I rode around with them and pointed out some places I’ve seen for sale around here. Later I went out to run some errands. Since then, I’ve been cleaning up and doing laundry at home.

Also, we got our ring sizers from T.R.S. in the mail yesterday. They recommend wearing the sizer for 24 hours because your size will change throughout the day, as your finger swells and stuff. So I wore the 6 1/2 yesterday afternoon and evening, and I’m wearing the 6 today. I guess I could go either way, though the 6 is probably better for me. I’m just not used to wearing rings at all, so I want to make sure that what I get will be comfortable. Also, they say the titanium rings cannot be sized larger (and it costs 35% of the price of the ring to have it sized smaller). So I want to make sure I get the right size the first time.

Speaking of getting married (!), I called the courthouse yesterday to find out more about this “self-uniting” license. The woman on the phone goes, “Are you of Amish or Quaker faith?” Um, no. So that’s why no one’s ever heard of that before. So we’ll have to find a justice of the peace after all. And say vows. And bla bla bla. I was kind of not into that because I hate having attention focused on me, and GG isn’t into that because he wants the least amount of fuss possible for this whole thing. But I guess we’ll have to do it, like normal people. (Or else convert to Quakers real quick.) The lady I spoke to said we should get the license first and then call a judge. She said there’s enough of them that we’ll be able to get the date that we want. Considering it’s a Tuesday, I’m sure we won’t have a problem.

  1. Wow, getting married. Congratulations!

    PA is a Commonwealth state and in most commonwealth states I believe all that is required to be considered married is for both of you to consent and agree to being married and it is recognized as a legal marriage. (the age requirement used to be obscenely young, maybe they changed that). However, a license is required to have your, “marriage on the books”, but I do think that having a ceremony and a little celebration is necessary because, at the very least, it’s fun.

    Best wishes to you both!

  2. OK, here it is. You get married on the same day as the Band 25th Anniversary party. Invite your family and friends to the Band party and VOILA! instant reception. No muss, no fuss. Just bring your own little cake and change your first dance to the, “Washington Post two step”. eh,EH?

    Of course, I’m kidding, in fact I’m still chuckling. Ever crack yourself up?
