still breezy

Firstlies, I would like to say thank you to everyone who said nice things about Joe and I (or to Joe and I) last week on The Collective. AND I would like to say thank you to whoever is responsible for the internet and also blogging because my life would be so, so completely different without both of those things. Like, stupid different, not good different.

I started blogging in 2003 (on Diaryland...yes, Diaryland) and if you had told me then that A) I'd be getting married in 7 years and B) I would be marrying someone I met on the internet and C) I would meet some of my BFFs on said internet AND they'd be coming to my wedding, I would have told you to back up your crazy face before I punched it. Which is rude, yes, but I am much more polite now than I used to be.

I have to admit, I feel ahead of the game when it comes to the whole "meeting people on the internet" thing. I became good friends with someone on the internet in high school, because of a TV show of all things, and we met each other back when everyone thought it was dangerous to meet anyone you met online, on account of YOU WILL GET MURDERED IN THE FACE WITH A SHARP, SHARP AXE. Well. I did not get murdered in the face, obviously, which is maybe why I had no worries whatsoever the first time I met The Collective on that Thanksgiving of miracles a few years ago.

I think my attitude toward meeting internet peoples is pretty cavalier. I never worried (much) about being axe murdered, as much as I joked about it. I even took my life into my own hands and tried internet dating, multiple times, in different mediums, but I think I can safely say at this point (after much reflection, believe you me) that my heart wasn't really in it until I met Joe.

We're getting married on Saturday and I'm trying my best to concentrate on the task(s) at hand, all work-related, until Wednesday at 5 when I leave work and don't come back for a week and a half. I'm almost as excited about that as I am to marry Joe. Almost. Mostly I'm just glad he didn't bring an axe on our first date, otherwise I think my life would look very different right now.


  1. omg, can you imagine if joe had brought an axe with him on your first date? that would have been HILARIOUS.

    no it wouldn't.

    can't wait to see you in a few days :)

  2. Yaaaay!

    (That yay was not for the axe, but for the seeing you. Heh.)

  3. One time I met Abigail and I asked her if she was an axe murderer.

  4. Well, you can never be too careful.

  5. Why is everyone so obsessed with axe murdering in particular, I wonder, when ALL of the murderers would be bad to meet? On the bright side, it forces real axe murderers to up their game to keep from becoming a cliche.

    Yay to Joe's non-axey, non-murderous ways.

  6. That's true! Plus, axe murdering seems so over the top. Also messy.

  7. So I'm a slacker and I forgot to post this on the Collective last Friday. And now it's two days before your wedding, so there's no way you'll read this until you come back from your honeymoon.


    Congratulations, best wishes, and all that! You two seem so awesome together, and I'm just so happy for the both of you! Have an amazing day!
