Singles Day

The motions have been rehearsed, the arch has already fallen over three times, and the outdoor ceremony weather forecast calls for a high of 79 and mostly sunny skies. We have a beautiful cake done by Anna's mom, and tiny gnomes with leopard spots will support Rebecca's train as she walks down the aisle to a wedding soundtrack that prominently features the trumpet and/or cornet.

Everything that can be done ahead of time has been done, and all that's left is to enjoy the fruits of our labour (especially grapes, fermented). Tomorrow after 5 PM, Rebecca and I will get married in the Blue Ridge Mountains, just 364 days after I proposed, and 6 days before Mike (of Mike and Chompy) turns 30 and likely dies.

After tomorrow, the URI! Zone and BU's house will have to slide the cats over to make room for BU's wife (and perhaps in two to three years, there will be children in the BUterus). I'm not sure how this momentous event will affect the posts on this website, but I imagine there will be a drastic reduction in the level of angst, cynicism, caustic vitriol, and misanthropic mayhem, followed by a statistically significant upswing in hugs and reviews of CDs of chicks that sing.

Until tomorrow, though, I'll be spending this evening in solitude, having a glass of pinot noir, and recalling the wonderful memories of singlehood, like the time I worked 80 hours a week for two months in 2005, the time I played World of Warcraft for 80 hours a week for two months in 2006 (honour-grinding), and the time I crashed a wedding and picked up Rachel McAdams and they made a movie about me.

Next week, I'll definitely try to post some Hawaii pictures to show you just how awesome it is where you aren't, and when full updates resume towards the end of the month, your loyal BU will be married!
