Melts in your blog, not in your hand

A few tidbits for you, bullet-point style...

  • My weird dreams never cease to amaze me. Last night, Andrew and I were sleeping under a layer of shredded cheddar cheese. And the cheese turned into a blanket. And then I asked Andrew if we should eat the blanket... because it was technically cheese. In a different dream, I purchased a raffle ticket from Rialeilani, who was selling them for $35 for a chance to win a blanket to support a church. That's an expensive raffle ticket, but I guess I thought it seemed like a good idea at the time. Where do I come up with this stuff?

  • We're going to see Sufjan Stevens in a few weeks! He's finally touring! I am so excited! Even if we have to drive for hours upon hours to get there... it will be one of the best experiences of my life. AND! I'll get to cross another item off my 101 Things in 1001 Days list! Woot! Speaking of Sufjan, Andrew, some of his groomsmen, and a very close friend will be performing one of his hymns at our wedding. I think their performance will easily be one of my favorite moments of our wedding day.

  • Prepare to have your head melted because this is the weirdest thing ever. Maybe even weirder than this. Yesterday, I was walking to a meeting a few blocks from my office when I saw a woman walk past me who looked so much like Andrew's ex-girlfriend that I had to do a double-take. When I realized it definitely wasn't her, I continued my journey and forgot all about the encounter. That is... until I received a comment from Jive Turkey saying: "Just found your blog through Hillary, which is funny, because I live in Pittsburgh too (like, 5 minutes from where some of your awesome engagement portraits were taken), and yet I only found you with the aid of another blogger who lives in CANADA."

    Okay, that's not so weird. But I clicked the link to her blog and started flipping through her flicker pics. That's when I noticed that SHE LOOKS STRIKINGLY SIMILAR TO ANDREW'S EX-GIRLFRIEND. With my heart racing (ok, not really but I'm trying to build some excitement here!), I commented on her blog asking if she was by chance on the same street as me at 1:45 p.m. And you guys? She totally WAS! It turns out we work next door to each other. It amazes me that each day, not only the blogosphere (that's for you, Kerri!) continues to shrink, but this whole damn world keeps getting smaller. On one hand, I kind of love it. But on the other hand, I want to crawl in a hole and cry while my head melts off.

  • Finally, I bought my rehearsal dinner dress but am a little iffy about it. It makes me look very sophisticated and fits nicely.... but something about it doesn't feel like "me." I'll have to model it for you and get your opinion on the matter--because I can't seem to find a picture of it online.

I am sorry I shrunk your world and contributed to possible head-melting, but the COINCIDENCE, it is INSANE. I just need to sit here and recognize the insanity for a few more minutes.

Also, I volunteer to let Andrew yell at me for a while if he needs to.

Whoa. That is so effing crazy!!

(Also, you totally should have eaten the cheddar cheese blanket.)

I think it's important to note that Jive Turkey is not Andrew's ex-girlfriend, just in case anyone was wondering. Because yesterday when you told me the story I was all "ANDREW AND JIVE TURKEY DATED?! WHAT?!" It was very confusing.

Also, I think it is important that you model your dress for us. Because I can't wait to see what anonymous thinks of it.

okay that is so random that you ran into the blogger and didn't know it right away, haha. the blogosphere is a crazy crazy place.

Your new blog picture is totally cute!

And you are SO right. This world is getting smaller and smaller! What a WEIRD coincidence!

The longer I'm alive, the smaller the world gets. And you would think I would get used to this fact... but it just keeps getting freakier!

The Sufjan Stevens hymn is really pretty! Nice choice for your wedding.

And speaking of which, thank you for bringing up the concert, because I just checked his tour dates and he's coming to my area three days after my birthday! So, in all truth, you may have just inadvertently made my birthday the greatest ever. :)

Ha. I keep waiting to run into another blogger on the street. Not sure it'll ever happen or what I'd do if it did (I'm not so good face to face) but I can't imagine it wouldn't be fun! The closest I've come is by being on the same beach on the same day as Dad Gone Mad. But we didn't see each other and he has no idea I exist, so... I guess that's a dumb story.

Yeah, I totally would have eaten the cheese blanket.

ria said...

i want to see your dress! and i totally ripped you off with that raffle ticket ;)

wow small world!

Okay, so, for the record, whenever you talk about heads melting it makes me pee my pants laughing (well, almost). So freaking hilarious - I love it!

And how do you have all these freaky "the world is so small that it is borderline creepy" stories? Dude! That is insane.

Also, props to you for using "blogosphere" in a sentence. I owe you a cookie. (Or bacon.)

Maxie said...

Why don't I ever run into bloggers on the street? Oh wait, because I live in wv :-(

I'm going to go cry now.

this post made me sad that I don't work next door to you.

I have been despairing at the lack of these delicious mini-meringue sandwiches that melt in your mouth in Vancouver since I got here. So to find a stall selling them made my week.
