The day has come! 
Saturday, 18 August, 2007, 08:02
Time to start getting ready. I'm freakin' pumped. I'm also freakin' freezing, I think the temperature outside went down below 70 F last night, and I had the A/C off and a couple of the upstairs windows open, so I've got me some goosebumps.

I know Julie's getting her hair done right now. Only 5 hours until I get to see her in the dress she's kept hidden from me for over a year.

I hope the day goes by as fast as people would normally say it does. Julie and I have been waiting quite some time for today to arrive, and in the end it crept up on us like a silent ninja assassin. But it turned out that the ninja assassin got the wrong address and wrong people, so we threw him an awesome party and he didn't carry out his mission after all.

Anyway ... here goes. I'm going to go take a shower and get into my penguin suit. Beyond that I haven't planned what I'm going to do before Bob and Jeff show up at 9:30. Once they arrive we'll probably sit around until the limo shows up around 11-ish. Then, we go to the church and get our pics taken, and I hide away in the room with the washing machine. Then, at 1:00, the ceremony begins.

Let's do this.

No backing out now.

... not like I was going to back out, though :) Rehearsal's over. Friday afternoon traffic is teh suq, though.

So ... everything is in order. Julie seems a lot more calm and collected now that the rehearsal is done; she was getting somewhat riled up beforehand. I'm glad she calmed down, I didn't want to have a Bridezilla on my hands :)

Looks like the next thing we have on tap is the wedding itself. Luckily, the rehearsal was pretty simple, and the steps are easy to remember. I know my ass would have forgotten the steps if they were any more complicated.

I learned today that they don't actually say "you may kiss the bride" during weddings in the Catholic Church. Kind of silly, but I think I'll go ahead and ask the priest if I can go ahead with it when the time comes :)

Time for a good night's sleep, and then for a wedding.

Pantsless? 
Friday, 17 August, 2007, 17:26
Somebody help me, Julie stole my pants!

Seriously though, I'm at her mom's place now and am waiting for her to finish steaming my pants. Apparently they were a bit wrinkled, which I don't understand because I ironed them and hung them up in the closet.

Rehearsal is scheduled to start in 30 minutes, followed by the infamous rehearsal dinner. I hope it's good, all I had was a small sandwich. I need more food than that.

Bob is on his way ... apparently traffic sucks, and he's stuck in it. He'll probably make it to the church by the skin of his teeth, which is better than not being able to make it at all :)

Time to go get my pants now.

ZOMG TOMORROW  
Friday, 17 August, 2007, 10:03
So ... rehearsal and its associated dinner is tonight. I'm pumped now. Time to get this overwith. Let's do this thang.

No work today. It felt kind of odd waking up at 8:30 this morning instead of my usual 7:30. Now it's time to take care of things ... one of the things on the menu for today is to start moving stuff from Julie's mom's house to the reception hall for tomorrow's festivities.

As of now, about 27 hours of being a single dude left.

2 Days

Well, I'm off work until September now. Perhaps tomorrow, when I wake up late and don't go to the office, I'll get a little nervous ... or perhaps not.

Rehearsal is tomorrow. I think that may have some effect, but then again I could be wrong. Maybe I won't be nervous until after the deed is done :D
