So... the weekend, the wedding. The wonderful.
The meeting of xhollydayx
, who allowed yagathai
and I to crash at their domi.
The kidnapping of the yuki_onna
and while tithenai
and I had cool falcon (her) and luchadore snidley whiplash (me) makes-up done by s00j
, and we all ( regyt
wore twirly mustaches and cackled and did the ulalations taught by the unbelievable tithenai
The subsequent party at theferrett
's, where justbeast
arrived in the company of numerous gents (including yagathai
took many pics, and, and... zomg my lj user tag brain is broked) and won back his bride, and yes. tithenai
played 'The Girl and Her Tales' in prep for the processional and I still owe them a dance to it. hps_sterling
contributed to the festivities in marvelous ways. There was magic card g33k with theferrett
and Miriam Makeba g33k with bec76
, and queerness g33k with puckathon
, who rocks a tux like no other, by the by. And the wedding itself! So many of the people linked here have described it so much better than I, but anything that involves so much love, vodka, pickled herring and dancing, where the dancing begins with Welcome to the Muppet Show Tonight and ends with the Manuhm Manuhm song, where Gogol Bordello's Start Wearing Purple kills the sound system, where I get to waltz with Her tithenai
-ness and swing with Bridetastic yuki_onna
and with the exquisite roomette
(who I have known online since frigging diaryland, and who lives in experimentart
's neck of the woods and y'all should hang out), where I got to watch s00j
dance together, which is a flat-out celebration of joy. And, and, and... well and. So much and.
I have pictures that I have to upload going back from before October, and I need to upload them. Somewhere around 7 or 8 Sunday evening, my brain short circuited from Awesome, my head screamed A Pomba Gira! And trying to recall everything threatens to do it again.
All I know is that I am blessed as bacon that I have gotten to go to two most beautiful, delightful, shiny, love-filled and flam-tastic weddings ever to happen in the world within a month of each other. Guh.
! Guess whose cutlass was used to cut the wedding cake!? :D )
ps-- I am looking forward to WisCon, as I have SO MANY REASONS to go next year!
pps-- title of post is the line that started in my head sometime Saturday evening, and still aten't quit.
