productive citizen

i’ve been having contests with myself to see just how productive i can be in a weekend. or anytime for that matter. and on the productivity scale, this weekend was quite productive in deed.

saturday morn, we and my mom met with the caterer, followed by the florist, for detailed run throughs at the dca of how things will be setup, including a discussion forcing “greens” upon me, which means i will really not like the decorating setup, but so be it.

we then followed this by meeting up with josh’s parents at the place we think will work for the rehersal dinner. they were into it. so huzzah. i am now very excited to hand this entire assignment to josh.

also met with the music director at the church, who is awesome, and have solidified the music for the ceremony, which i am psyched about.

our cake search continues with much gusto. we went to pick up a cake yesterday which ended up being GAAAROSS! so good thing the people were so rude to us that i have no interest in using them. but joke’s on them because we still get free cake. ha ha.

we also discussed transportation that i have been totally ignoring. i have this whole plan to get a classic car (think 57 cadillac!) but i have begrudingly accepted the fact we will probably need limos. which makes me want to vomit. i hate limos, viserally. i think they are the epitome of disgusting ostentatiousness and everytime i see one, i think yuck (josh thinks i am a little crazy about this, and did talk me down somewhat). but i guess i will be forced into this too, EVEN THOUGH the church and reception are approximately 200 feet apart, my parents are refusing to drive there in normal cars like normal people – or as they said, “get real laura, we’re not from the sticks, you just don’t do that.” so gross. limos. and the logistics of handling them make me exhausted.

but things are getting done. and that’s the important thing.

    “get real laura, we’re not from the sticks, you just don’t do that.”

    It took me a few minutes to recover from that one.

    Principal Skinner: Oh, licking envelopes can be fun! All you have to do is make a game of it.

    Bart: What kind of game?

    Principal Skinner: Well, for example, you could see how many you could lick in an hour, then try to break that record.

    Bart: Sounds like a pretty crappy game to me.

    Principal Skinner: Yes, well… Get started.
