Oh, the past few days have been so busy. Ever since we've gotten to Vermont there's been caterers to meet, the planner to work with, hotel staff to organize... Planning a wedding-especially one with this kind of security that half the guests can't notice-is really hard.
It's all going to be worth it in... Jeez, a little over six hours. I'm going to be married in six hours. Wow. That's so exciting. I can hardly sit still, but I'm at the point now where I've done all I can and now I have to sit still and pass the next five hours before I go out there again. Jake went out with Charlie(one of his squadmates) again-he's so nervous I think he would've exploded trying to sit still. That and he's still trying to make sure and spend lots of time with his Army friends. I know some of them were weirded out, if not by me than by the fact that he'd been lying to him since the moment he met them. Can't really blame him for wanting to give them his time to be sure. Besides, after tonight, we'll have forever together. <3
And, after all, I've been heading out to meet people off and on. Yesterday I took Konaa and Hylo shopping for wedding clothes. It was glorious, their clothes look amazing, and we had a grand time. I went ahead and paid for their clothes because they're expensive, and generally the Stalked don't have spare cash, what with hospital visits and hotels and weapons and such. And, I mean, they've come all the way to Vermont to come to my wedding. I figure it's the least I can do.
In any case, shopping with you two was wonderful, and I'm sorry the bakery we found wasn't very good. Someday I'll bake for you myself to make up for it.
A few hours later I was off with Jake, Elaine, and Nick to meet Lucas and Joel for coffee. Jake and Nick had of course never met or really interacted with Lucas and Joel, but it went pretty well. Elaine spent most of the time glowing in the company of her new lover, and I think we're all glad to see her so happy. It was also good to see Lucas and Joel well and happy. I know they've been having a bit of trouble since they left us, but both of them were solidly there, healthy, whole(more or less) and looking pretty happy to be there. I love seeing my friends doing well, especially these days.
A few hours of 'downtime' where I worked on last minute stuff with caterers, then it was time for the bachelor party! Jake went to a bar with some of his army friends, whereas MY party, which consisted of Hylo, August and Spencer, and Lucas and Joel. We all-well, except for Spencer- dressed in drag and went to a gay bar. It was fabulous, and August looked amazing in his dress and got SO MANY PHONE NUMBERS. Everyone looked good in their drag, really. A fabulous time was had by all.
And now... Now I wait for my wedding. Thank goodness for the internet, right? I'll see many of you there!
