Friday flurry

Today is a workday for me, though Fridays are usually a day off. Realized within the first hour of work yesterday that getting the rest of the week's work done yesterday wasn't going to happen, which was at least as much of a relief as a disappointment—it kept me from being stressed and busting my hump to reach an unattainable goal. And since I'll probably be the only one in the office, it'll be much easier to focus on these administrative tasks.

barlow_girl and I checked out a prospective apartment after work yesterday (we're on the fence between living at my current place and moving closer to friends on Capitol Hill), then ventured to the dreaded University Village to choose wedding invitations. The number of choices is overwhelming, and so many of those choices border on the ridiculous (quite a few reside on the other side of that border). We're thinking simple, which seems far from the norms of the wedding industry.

LJ dinner tonight: we're joining unblinkable & p150, dashausfrau, and musicismath & fumblegirl (and Maren!) at the 5 Spot at 19:00. Yum.

Bonus points for using military time.

Thought of printing your own invitations?

I have friends who have done this with wedding invites and baby announcements. Velum, or that fibrous handmade paper is great...you can combine papers for a good look. Of course, we didn't take the time to do that. We ordered an off white invitation with simple print in a color of our wedding. I think there was a flower on the card, that's it. It was YEARS ago....

Hey Dr. Banzai!

I'm back in school--god what a blessed relief. The U is somehow safe for me like ... church used to feel, many years ago. Actually, that could be a bad sign about my future relationship with the U, but I'll think about that later.

I love your "busting my hump". Bizarrely, it instantly caused me to visualize a camel...

I think I understand, but I would love to hear why UVillage is preceeded by "dreaded".

You've entered the wedding invitation hell! I just kept saying "SIMPLE SIMPLE SIMPLE" and had to fight like hell to keep it that way.
Our wedding florist was the g-g-g-gayest guy in three counties and I had to fight tooth and nail to keep him from putting greenery and baby's breath in all the bouquets. Good lord, that man would not take no for answer.
I love the phrase "busting my hump"! That really irons my pants!

PS - Embrace U Village! Your postmodern bias against the upper-tax-bracket and all it represents is futile!
HA! The wedding industry seems to thrive on ridiculous. Good luck with that, we found a really elegant company but of course it was over 7 years ago and I cant remember, but they are out there, even the less expensive ones. Good luck.
