disappointments blow.

guh.  i just got news that one of my really good friends from back home can't come.  it's so last minute, and my brain is already mush from going over details and schedules and stuff constantly, that i can't even figure out how to feel.  i'm so sad.  i mean, i've got a ton of other people coming that i'm so excited to see and can't believe they're all coming up here to attend our wedding. but... it's hard to hear when people that mean so much to you can't make it.

sigh. im exhausted.  i can't wait til monday, but i wish that everyone i wanted there was there,

Meet our officiant.

EVAN!!!!
Unfortunately, that's not Evan's actual body, but a cleverly photoshopped swimsuit model's body.  I think this pictures been around for like 5 years, and it tricks people all the time.  I wish I remembered who actually created this gem, because I'd send them a pie or one of my cats or something else awesome.

Anywho, I've known Evan for about 7 years.  We met while working at House of Blues in Anaheim.  Evan's always been an entertainer and an awesome buddy.  One of my favorite memories of Evan was while working at Gospel Brunch at HOB and setting up the venue for the second showing.  Someone turned on 'I Believe in a Thing Called Love' by The Darkness, and Evan jumped up on the stage and started to dance and sing along, and the production dudes turned on all of the stage lights while he danced around for the entire song.  He then jumped back down and got to work.  How do I not have a video of that?!?!  Sigh.  He's now a kick ass beer brewer in Southern California, and lives in Orange, CA with his lovely lady Aubrey.

So why did we choose Evan?  Well, getting married is a really special and personal day.  We didn't feel comfortable with some random dude that knows nothing about us writing a ceremony about us and being a part of our big moment (although I have to give props to my sister and her husband for picking a random minister off a list solely based on his name, Don Johnson).  Chris and I thought about who we wanted to have perform our ceremony and Evan was the first name out of both of our mouths.  What makes us even happier about our choice is how excited Evan is to do this.  Plus Evan is probably the funniest guy I've ever met, so I know that not only will the ceremony be wonderfully written, but funny and personal at the right moments.  And I know the dance floor will never be empty with this guy around.
Taken by me in Puerto Nuevo, Mexico!
We love you Evan!  And we can't wait to see you.

It's the final countdown!

So in less than an hour, we'll be counting down from 7 days.  7 MOTHER FUCKING DAYS!  AHHHHH! It's getting so close.  We still have some details to work out, but thank god we're organized.  Kind of.  Really I just have this to do list in my head.  It's like I have a set of escalator stairs with something to do painted on every step and it just keeps going and going and repeating... and then my irrational fear of getting shoelaces caught in the escalator monster happens even though I pretty much always wear flats, and I get side tracked and have to start over on my mental to do list.  Ugh.

So some fun things. We've been getting gifts in the mail which is super tits.  Last night we received a bunch of stuff from Cassie and Chipasaurus, including these:
Little bomb shaped shot glasses by Fred and Friends that were promptly filled with liquor.  It'd be rude to leave them empty right?  Please excuse our matchy matchy plaid shirts by the way, I was half dead when Chris left for work in the morning so I had no idea.  Amazon.com is awesome for wedding registries because you can put soooooo much unrelated stuff on there.  Except pet polar bears.  So Amazon gets 4 out of 5 stars.

Joeymonster came over and worked on some fun photobooth props with me while we watched awesome torture porn, like Frontier(s) and Saw 2.
RAAAAAD.

So for the next 3 days we'll be finishing up loose ends and drinking lots of shots.  It's overwhelming but I know it'll all be worth it.  Sometimes I just need to remind myself to breath and focus on something distracting and silly.  So, an image of this little buddy, Basil, makes everything okay and I don't feel the need to curl up into the fetal position and cover my eyes.
HAPPY TIME!

I'd like to go one day without spending money.

I can't complain though.  Opening my door and seeing this almost every day makes me so giddy!

Especially when it's filled with this!

And this!

And this!
And this!
Hooray!
