Promises Of Eternity
Yesterday was Bryan and Andrea’s wedding up at the Tripp family compound in Orangeville. It was an absolutely gorgeous day for an outdoor wedding and it was a lovely ceremony. The only downside on the day was when night fell and the mosquitoes began to swarm. I knew there was a reason I never left the city. Damn nature!! They went for the knees this time, the bastards. But that was mitigated somewhat by the fact that I was actually able to see the stars in the sky for the first time in many months. Fantastic.
For the first time since 1998, I have no weddings on the horizon to attend. I’ve been to 10 since June 1999, so this has been a long time coming. I should get my suit dry-cleaned.
Thanks to the efforts of the wonderful and resourceful Kate (or maybe just damn lucky), I do have Radiohead tickets for August. They are seats and they are from the W.A.S.T.E. allotment of tickets so they should be decent seats. I will refrain from being too excited until the tickets actually physically arrive in Canada, though. Much can happen between point A and point B.
Former Leafs coach and all-around hockey legend Roger Neilsen passed away from cancer yesterday. A sad day for hockey.
