Damn. I would feel guilt for not updating my journal periodically through August, but then that guilt would be assuaged by sleep, blessed sleep. We went to Los Angeles for 4 days, we got married, and we went to Azi’s wedding, a house-warming, and I found my wedding dress in a single weekend. I think a lot was done in August.
In LA, I met Shelley, and I only called her Linda once (so embarassing). I got a bunch CDs:
- Jacky Cheung’s Life is Like a Dream
- William So’s So Fresh
- Ah Mei’s Regardless
- Ah Mei’s 1996-2000
- Jay Chow’s Common Orange Jasmine
- Alex Toh’s Take Off
- Kelly Chen’s Beloved Collection even though it’s old, it was only $8 and I got a tin box out of it…
- Eason’s Live For Today
- Chang Chen Yueh’s Useless Guy
And yes, I could have bought all of this on YesAsia.com, but it was way more fun and cheaper besides, to buy it in person…
Our digital photos from LA are here. I love Shelly jie!!
Our wedding photos are there, too.
Dude. Some things about our wedding. I love Tony, and it was a sudden, but necessary, and my father’s hateful email aside, everyone understood.
Yes, another rushed marriage in the interests of keeping someone I love with me.
But no, it’s not the same as the last one.
But it felt like it, for a few minutes. When I looked at the pictures, saw how my hair had fallen flat, saw all of the freckles, the blurry pictures, the ring that isn’t even my ring, the dress I found at the last minute, that STUPID glitter eyeliner that made me look like a misplaced club kid…crap why do I let my sister talk me into stuff like that? There is no amount of editing that can change that day from a rushed haphazard affair to a beautiful day that the beginning of our marriage deserves. I resent that it went down like that. Again.
I want a cigarette.
But…I have a wonderful husband, who I wouldn’t give up for anything. He’s really mine. Cool, huh? And we have ordered a perfect ring, a beautiful sapphire solitare set in white gold. And next year we will have a real wedding if it kills me.
