However, there is something about weddings that make people lose their sense of agency and need to ask the bride about every little thing. I've been asked everything from what shoes (which I think is reasonable) to how to wrap our wedding present (which is not). It's like we are Ta'veren and everyone is just waiting for our approval. More frustrating is the lack (possibly American lack as I've talked to others before) of ability to look things up. Though the website is chock full of info and we've sent out numerous emails & google docs with information people still ask me. Even though I've clearly said in other emails that I don't have this information, people still ask me.
Of Match Day I will be heading down to wonderful Asheville, NC to join the Mountain Area Health Education Center MAHEC. That's right I get to be warm have a beautiful view, southern hospitality, in a hippie liberal refuge. That's right it's NC version of Austin or Yellow Springs on steroids. :-) Here's a shot before we found out where were going.
Now we're heading to Shadowbox for a combined Bachelor Bachelorette-esque party. Can't wait to chill out and have some fun. On other news I gave a successful talk on White Privilege to FreeThought thanks to TWIB NET. Shout out to the chatroom and all my wonderful friends who are helping me remain sane by tying ribbons and gluing corks. ONE WEEK LEFT.
