The High Party
There is a dog in the house! My cousin Annie is visiting from Cleveland, and she brought her dog, Pumpkin. Pumpkin is a nice puppy – not the smartest thing in the world, but very friendly and playful. I took her for a walk in Queen’s Park this afternoon and she nearly had a fit trying to chase the dozens of squirrels around the park. Wore me right out, at least.
Bought Ted Leo & The Pharmacists’ Hearts Of Oak as a birthday present to me. Yeah, that’s the rationale I used for the bike too, but since I haven’t gotten any gifts from anyone else, I feel justified in spoiling myself a little.
So Scott got married yesterday, and my day was spent traipsing around Woodbridge with the folks from work. The ceremony was short and sweet – not even ten minutes long! Way to smash the record for shortest wedding ever. Fantastic. Of course, this meant that we had four hours or so to kill before the reception… Time spent walking around Kleinburg (little little town!), sitting around a restaurant serving pre-reception refreshments and chatting with the limo driver, wandering around Woodbine Centre mall and capped off with my first game ever of Dance Dance Revolution, nattily attaired in my suit. That game is hard! And then the reception, which was quite tasty if not as voluminous in quantity as I’d been led to expect. Mark got pretty drunk and was quite the dancing machine – probably all primed from Dance Dance Revolution… It was a good time had by all. And I have two more weddings in the next six weeks. I better get my suit dry cleaned.
