Of Dark and Stormy Weddings

Some of you may notice a drastic drop in the levels of snark and filfth in the blogosphere this weekend because I will be gone. I had originally planned on going to the MWA Midwest conference “Of Dark and Stormy Nights,” instead I will be dropping $160 on a tux and standing up for the only guy who willingly hugs me. Yes he’s straight and he’s getting married this Saturday. I’ve known Matt for about six years now and he’s one of my closest guy friends. This will be the third wedding I’ve been involved in and it’s nice to know I have a few places to point when people say “Why are all your friends girls?” And speaking of girls, I had hoped to see Laura at this conference because she wasn’t making any MI stops on her tour for “To the Power of Three” so Laura consider this a public apology for dissing you. I know it’s all you really had to look forward to this weekend.

Anyway, I’ll be under the radar for the next few days and will be hopefully using the massive amounts of downtime and boredom inherent in protestant weddings to finish my blog story.

In other good news I just bought an air conditioner and will be taking it back home with me when I’m done here. And not nearly soon enough. They may be God’s chosen people, but the purveyors of my Jewish rooming house have not been blessed with cool digs. Maybe it was all that time they spent in the desert.

Mmmmmmm, desert…
