Work and Wedding
Whee. I have my own office at work. Finally! After five and a half years. I went up today to make sure I had all my stuff, but I wasn't very productive with unpacking. Mostly I shuffled things around. I think this is because the office is going to make me insane. The walls are crooked.Tags: work; wedding Current Mood:
Yes. They are crooked, becauwsee of how it's built. And my back has to be to the door when working on my computer, with the current desk setup. If I turn it around, the office will look even smaller. I wonder if I can take it apart or find a credenza... As it is, I pulled out the desk from the wall a bit to make something of a semblance of straightness.
I will miss my windows, as well. Maybe I can steal a fish tank from somebody, or get my own....
And in wedding-planning news, we've found two locations we really like. Of course, we really love the more expensive one. But the somewhat less expensive one is still really nice. I'm going to have to call and quiz them a bit more tomorrow morning, and if our favorite answers my questions happily (and is still available, since they were already booked for the evening) then I'll be slapping down a huge deposit.
My main gripe right now is I really did want to do a mid-afternoon wedding, because I had this vision of doing a tea: finger sandwiches, appetizers, tea and coffee, scones, etc. Unfortunately, we're going to have to have a lunch instead. And we're eyeing both the brunches and real lunches, and trying to decide the best way. Maybe I can alter some of the menus to be more finger-foody. There's an afternoon hors d'oeuvres reception at the place, too, but it really depends on what we decide to do. I feel compelled to offer a full meal if we're making somebody come to a wedding at lunch time. So... maybe we can do enough finger foods to make a meal. I still want fancy finger sandwiches, though, dammit. Wonder if they'd alter the brunch for me... omelets and waffles, pastries, a roast and finger sandwiches? Yum!
Next order of stress is picking bridesmaids. Randy wants attendants. I'd be happy with none. I have no idea who to ask. At all.
Anybody want to be a bridesmaid? (And yes, this is a halfway serious question.)
