The year of the paper

by statia on January 24, 2006

One year ago today, I was freaking the fuck out. Not because I was about to get married. Surprisingly, I didn’t have cold feet at all. Unlike the first time I got married, where I felt trapped because I knew he wasn’t the love of my life, but I had the “my parents just spent 25 grand” guilt factor.

I was freaking out because nothing was going right. I tend to be a bit anal about details. The meester was very calm for most of the afternoon repeatedly telling me that “it would all be ok.” Ask me if I listened. First I woke up with pizza face. Pizza.Face. On my wedding day. People, do you realize how detrimental this is? I’m not talking about a little zit, I’m talking full on revenge from the zit gods for gracing me with great skin during my akward teenage years. Then there was the big hair. Oh my lord, the big hair. After I repeatedly told the Key West leftover that was my hairdresser that I did NOT WANT BIG HAIR. I wanted simple waves. I came back to the room and cried, while trying to get a brush through the rats nest that was BIG HAIR. I put Texans to shame. Then, the final straw was the fact that the sticky things that’s supposed to hold up the Dolly Parton like tits wasn’t working for anything. At this point, not only was my face resembling a pizza, but it was resembling a swollen broken capillary like pizza.

It was at this point that the Meester lost it. He tried, he really did.

And right after that, champagne and chocolate covered strawberries showed up. She’s got excellent timing. After I tore into the champagne, I started to slowly climb down from the ceiling.

And the meester? He was right. It was all ok.

Happy Anniversary baby. I love you.

P.S. There’s a new infertile blogger on the scene that you need to start reading. She’s still working on the design a bit, and getting up and running, but go and welcome her because she’s going to need the support from us infertiles. So go say hi.

Happy Anniversary! I actually came by from Helen’s blog. You and your meester sound great!

I do have a question for you; Helen mentioned in her blog you had fabulously soft sheets.

I have an obsession about finding soft sheets and I live in the Bay Area too (north of SF). And, I hope you don’t mind me asking but, what kind of sheets are they and where can I get them, yatta?

Thanks in advance (although I swear my husband will kill me if I bring home yet ANOTHER set of sheets. The linen closet is bulging with the ones I bought that just weren’t soft enough and the ones that ARE soft enough are starting to wear out. Help!)

If you catch a guy at the right time, just saying the words “twisted testicle syndrome” might make him spontaneously pass out…
