9/11

Guess what today is? Why it's my parent's 44th wedding anniversary of course. They were married in September of 64 and I was born in March of 65. I'll take unplanned pregnancies for $500 Alex. I jest. Since I now know more people with divorced parents than with married ones, I'm pretty proud of my folks.

In other news, my younger brother has decided it's more important to go with his girlfriend and her family to Hawaii at Christmas than to spend it at the beach in NC with the folks and I. The Nerve. Here is the note I just sent him:

"In 15 years, I've driven through one of the worst ice storms the east coast has seen, driven over 1100 miles in one day, got stranded on an Interstate for 8 hours in foot high snow and driven through 3 blizzards. And your going to let a little thing like a gorgeous woman and a trip to Hawaii stand in the way of family Christmas plans? Sheesh!


heheheheh. Kidding. Sounds like a tempting offer. Maybe next year you'll bring her to spend the Holidays with us. Looking forward to seeing you on Turkey Day. It's looking like Myrtle Beach. Let me know if I need to pick you up somewhere. Charlotte or Wilmington or Columbia might be options. Don't know how close the puddle jumpers will get.

Mark"


So I'll be spending all of Thanksgiving week on the East Coast this year. Heads up to my friends out that way. I'll see as many of you as possible and catch the rest at Christmas time.

Tomorrow after work I head to the farm and on Friday I leave for NM for a week. If anyone would like a visit, let me know.

Back in June, I met this girl in a bar in Rushville and she asked me to photograph her wedding September 20. She talked to me via MySpace message last month. Since then, nothing. No directions, no time to be there, no discussion of the kinds of photos she wants. I event sent her a reminder last week. Does this sound like a well planned wedding to you? Show of hands, how many women out there hadn't taken care of photographer details 9 days before their wedding day?

I'm taking my laptop on vacation with me (I know, "gasp!" right?). I'll check email once while I'm gone. If I don't have a confirmation by mid-week next week, I'm not coming home until the 21st.

Peace,

Wander

My photographer was booked within 24 hours of John having proposed. Then I bought his plane tickets three months in advance. :)

I rest my case. I think an extra day in NM will be in order.

If I had had a photographer for my wedding, he'd of been taken care of months and months in advance.

This is what I mean. It's now just over a week before her wedding and I have no idea how to get to the location or even a phone number to call her with. I'd told her I was going to be gone the week before. But see, she chose me because I was cheaper than an actual studio who wanted to charge her $800. So either the wedding is on hold or she found some family member who would do it for free and she's just not telling me. Either way, it will be her loss. I'll bet I get an email toward the end of the week though.

A whole night
I feel blessed!
Well, I know I wouldn't let you get a photo of me one time cause I was feeling so bad. If you can find a way to get me "in a good light" you can definitely take my portrait.

Re: A whole night
With a little mead in us I think we can get you in a good light. I little shoulder massage to get you relaxed might help too.

Re: A whole night
That anon comment was me. I think we need to start you off with a massage, some good conversation and a few glasses of mead and we will have you in a relaxed and wonderful light.
