take a few minutes and look at all of the "nonsense" words we use, quite unconsciously, every day. try making a list--see how many you can come up with....:)
That should be fun, Vi. Such a rich, bountiful crop to choose from -- some, like the "tweet/twitter" thing, should be outlawed, but it's probably too late now. In a kissin' cousin way, our local sports page recently ran a headline, "Horned Frogs top Longhorns." Shades of a stranger in a strange land.

Bakechef, I too am just reading about this now and wish you and your partner sincere congratulations! Love is what matters on this earth and nothing else. I agree with Addie about the "Courthouse and small reception" idea.

My TB and I never wanted the huge wedding that seemed to be playing out with the fact that his immediate family alone (at that time, it has since grown more) was 15 including spouses and kids and aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. brought it over 100 before my side and friends were even considered. It was my second marriage and neither of us wanted the stress. We got married in our back yard with his best friend and my sister by a marriage commissioner (they come to you now here, you don't go to them) and had a meal with them after. Two months later we had a small reception for close family and friends.

However you end up spending your day, keep in mind two things - it is for the two of you, but there are others who want to share in your happiness!

I'm feeling exhilarated that my live turned around and that I am the point where I can splurge on good cheeses and the fact that I've come so far that I now have furniture, cable TV and a computer with internet. This past month I even was able to buy myself a musical keyboard that was totally unnecessary and just for me because I wanted it and I could.

It's the first time in many years that I have been able to do these things and feel this way.

So here is a venting thread to vent the excited feelings and share the happiness.

I just now happened to reread your original post here, Zhizara. A sweet deja vu. Hope you've enjoyed lots of good cheese since then! Let me take it to heart and stop dithering.

I'm just reading this as well- congrats! Wish you much happiness, and hopefully you are one step closer to not needing to "preface" an announcement that you are making spending the rest of you life with the person you love official.

People who have issues are not worthy of your time anyway. Congrats! Hope you have a great marriage
I totally agree with this

Maine has voted for marriage equality. My partner and I have been together for almost 9 years and we have decided to go to my home state next year and tie the knot! Although our current state of residence will still see us as "just friends", I hope that will too change some day soon!

Just wanted to share this with a lot of people that I consider friends here at DC.
+1 Or, you could come to Canada and tie the knot.
