Weekend 2 - Electric Boogaloo

Umm....yeah.

First off, congrats to the Giants. You gotta love the story, and you have love the fact that the Patriots aren't perfect. I felt bad for Seau, but that was about it. Bill Beladick proved how much of a sore loser he is by leaving with that second on the clock, but whatever. Eli's got a ring like his brother, R-Dub got a ring, and the Patriots got shut up. It was a good game and I'm surprised at how into I got. It was almost as exciting as watching the Bears play. Almost.

Anyway, I didn't even notice the three inches of snow that fell outside. The weather's been crazy. Speaking of crazy, what is up with the people in the world. I really think we need an armageddon or massive plague of some sort. Fucking assholes. That guy that shot up the Lane Bryant just south of here. The kid that killed his whole family, some other guy that killed his parents, it's crazy.

Oh and then that guy that confessed what he/they did to Natalee Holloway. I guess they got her or she was really drunk and passed out. They tried CPR, supposedly, but instead of calling for help they got a boat and dumped her out at sea. They'll never find her. I don't know. I'm not saying she deserved what happened to her, but who lets their 18 year old go on a trip to freakin' Aruba? Okay she was an adult, technically, but my sister wasn't going to go to Aruba alone at that age or with he HS graduation class. I'm sure that she didn't pay for it either. Then who goes out, a woman, by herself, alone with some strangers in a strange country? Who left her alone, nice friends. Eh, whatever, it is what it is. It's unreal.

Well, it was a pretty good weekend, second one in a row, it's kind of scary. Saturday we went out to D's party and I got pretty hammered. Everyone was buying him shots and of course I'd always get one as well. Long Islands, Rum and Cokes, shots and more shots. The last time I was that bad was New Year's. I guess I was pretty talkative on the ride home, so much so that Melissa had to tell me to shut up, heh. At one point I started rambling on about the great gift I got her for Valentine's Day when, to my knowledge, I haven't yet. Heh. Wow.

The party was fun and it was a good night, but a letdown at the same time. Everything seems to be a letdown these days. We had a good time but I was looking forward to seeing some of my old friends, but a lot of people didn't show up. The crew really doesn't exist anymore. As much as I hate to say it, we just don't hang out anymore. Everyone's so busy doing their own thing I guess. It's sad but what can you do?

Yesterday we had our usual Medici's and then I picked up some Connie's for lunch/dinner. Wings, pizza, spinach dip, it was sooooo good. The game was great, the team I was pulling for actually won, and the commercials were pretty good as well.

So, all in all, it was another good weekend. Let's keep it rolling through Mardi Gras. (oh yeah, we've got to meet with the priest at St. Jerome's on Tuesday about our wedding, ekk. Gracie, what is it like? Is he going to quiz me about the Ten Commandments or something?)

Much Love,

Gil

hrmmm... well, i knew my priest for a long time, so it was fairly easy. or comfortable. the main thing was like, "please don't ask us if we are living together or if we are having sex." but luckily he didn't ask us any of that!! i think if you can get by those two questions then you are gold. i really wouldn't worry about it so much. the worse part that i've found is that to priests/pastors weddings are old hat to them. they know what they are doing. so they kind of assume everything will be ok and that you will figure it all out. now, if you have a cool priest, even if you don't have any idea what you are doing the day of your wedding, he should be able to smoothly tell you what to do. i think the experience is kinda different depending on the church. my friend got married at my *old* Catholic church and she had to go on a couple's retreat and stuff. I know they had to do writing and stuff... Mine was way cooler than that. I was a nervous wreck though. Don't worry. It will all work out. If you need any advice you (or Melissa) can call me.

Thanks for responding so don't worry about calling me today, if you got my text. Yeah, the church where I want to get married is where I got baptized and I did my first communion. (how do you know your priest so long, don't they switch parishes every seven years or so?) I don't even know the priest and I rarely go to Church these days so that's pretty much what's worrying me. That and the fact that Melissa's not very religious and isn't Catholic per se. Maybe the chruch wedding is a bad idea, heh.

I'm not really sure too much what to say... but... I guess if things do go badly, you could then decide you don't want to do the church thing? I think you should be fine. They don't really have to know you don't go to church much... i mean, if you go to a large church (which I am assuming it is). if anything, say you put cash (not checks) in the tithe basket. that's bad. i'm telling you how to lie to the priest! ah, but no. i think most priests are down to earth. i wouldn't think you are any worse off than any other couple that goes and talk to them. i mean, how many perfect Catholics do you know?

you'll be fine. just think of it as a task you have to get checked off... and that once you are done you are free.
