Wedding Madness

So before I become horribly swamped in details and overwhelmed with the minutia that I think is coming, I am going to be horribly proud of myself in regards to wedding planning.

So far Prince Charming and I have:

1) Booked the church and hall
2) Mostly booked a caterer (just waiting for a taste test which is already booked, and probably mostly a formality)
3) Figured out tuxes (final fittings tomorrow)
4) Bought one wedding dress
5) Booked the photographer
6) Decided on favours
7) Bought invitations (Yay Michael's!)
This is pretty far in advance, so that is pretty exciting for me.

In about five minutes, I'll realize what else needs doing, start crying, give myself a massive migraine and collapse.

Prince Charming won't know what hit him.

Actually, he will, and hopefully he:

1) Won't take it personally (probable)
2) Won't let it get to him (unsure, he also gets stressed about the wedding, but usually we freak out at different times so it tends to not be a disaster)
3) Will realize that it will end (definitely probable, when I freak out about something, he is generally pretty good about staying calm, putting me to bed and/or feeding me, and weathering the storm )

On to the next thing....

End of Term

I just finished my last final. It will probably take a little to turn my head around and actually realize that I'm done for the term.

In retrospect, I will say that it wasn't my best term, and I'm going to have to do something to make sure that next term isn't so hard/bad.

9 credits left until I graduate. God willing.

However, before I do that, I'm going to watch White Christmas tonight with Prince Charming (who is finally home) and wrap christmas presents and have a lovely dinner.

Free! Free! Free!

Well, sort of. I have one test left, but not for 12 days. Prince Charming comes home in 4 days. So today I am going to go play with a camera with a friend of mine. Maybe I'll get a picture for the site, maybe not. If you are in Edmonton, we will be the two loons at the Legislature grounds, running around like nutcakes. It will be mucho grande latte fun.

In the meantime I'm borrowing her computer while she showers and prettifies herself. You know, all that girly stuff at which that particular friend excels at. It should be a photo-extravaganza, and a rather long post. or not. she's pretty quick. Fun huh?

Last Day of School, or the day I finally regain my mind

Today, gentle reader, is the last day of school for the Fall 2005 school year at the University of Alberta.

Yes, today is the day where I remember that there actually is an end in sight, and that soon all that there will be left is 9 credits of courses between myself and graduation, whatever that may bring.

Of course, between myself and that exact moment is about four pages of b.s. (yes, you heard me Mr. Literary/Visual Criticism-Fan, a big whole load of someone ate too much McDonald's crap er... crap, but I mean it!) Oh, and that one big honking scary test that fortunately I have a nice chunk of time to study for and learn all the things I was too busy trying to keep up to actually understand. Well, unless I totally screw that one up.

Perhaps you are wondering about my track record for studying during exam week, especially after Prince Charming just got home after 4 months of being 2 timezones away?

Well, it might not be the best, but with a little faith, hope, a very detailed schedule, I may not do so badly. Here's hoping.

And might you be wondering also where exactly I am at this moment due to my latest technical trials?

Well, I am at the nicest lab in the university that I've found so far. Which is as far of a discription as I'm giving anyone because it happens to be both a) quiet, b) not too busy and c) posessing of both windows and a nice view. Keeping it that way might mean that other's cant enjoy it, but that is a sacrifice I'm ok with making in order to keep the gomers out.

Panties! Panties! Panties!

Oh, but not your average natty grannie panties, oh no. We are talking very cute new panties, just in time for Christmas. Unfortunately, I don't think they have the exact pairs that I have online, which is very sad, because they are even nicer looking. I will admit, I am a sucker for ribbons on panties. Although, I almost got these, but in blue or black. I will admit, I was very sad that I also A) am not super rich, being a student and all, and B) stopped fitting their bras years ago. Oh well, less cute things to spend money on means more money spent here and here.

Or something like that.

I would just like to say that I deliberately did not make any comments about how the panties don't look the same on me as they do on the models. Very deliberately.
