Jane's wedding

Well, the big day has come and gone for Jane.

This weekend, I was in Mississauga, playing third fiddle in Jane's wedding party. It was weird, not really knowing anyone there except Jane and of course I've met the groom, Chris, before as well. I'd met a couple of people once before, but mostly it was all new faces.

There were lots of really cute Korean kids there. I got to play blocks for a little while with one of them. And of course, the attractive Korean adults too...

I got to have a manicure and pedicure and my hair and makeup done -- I felt like a total princess. Like it was my wedding!

It was funny, I wasn't at all emotional during the wedding or speeches, even though most people got at least misty. Not me. In typical fashion, I waited until this morning when I saw Jane to get all teary. It just hit me. Possibly I'm an emotional freak, i don't know. Anyway, I would like to note that I did call it.

I'm really happy that she's happy. And that they're on the their way to Jamaica tomorrow. Yay. The girl never relaxes otherwise. She was planning and directing the entire wedding. She was great. I didn't have to know a thing... just followed the leader and wore pretty things.

And now I'm off to the New Pornographers concert with about two hours of sleep.

Not that I'm complaining. If there's a good reason for not getting sleep, then it's all good. And for the first time in a while, I have a happy smile on my face.

I have two regrets: not being MORE friendly sooner and not dancing more.

But that could be said about most days.
