I thought I had a boring life too - until yesterday.

So be careful, it could happen to you too!

I somehow doubt it, and I am a-okay with that.

Damn. My prom date's dad dropped dead yesterday.:-( He was really nice; could have been one of the Superfans on SNL with his thick Chicahgo accent.

Gotten all kinds of bad news about friends' parents lately. Dead, dying, yadda yadda. I feel like I'm ahead of that terrible curve, and I feel like I can help friends through it without it sucking me in to my own grief. So, I guess that's good...or something.

Also, I know I told the regs at dinner, but I don't know if I mentioned it on here, but I think they're realizing they don't have money for a wedding anytime soon. Heh. I don't think anyone is too concerned with them extending their timeline at all.

That tells me that they weren't all that interested in getting married, then, because you can get married for the cost of the license application. Judge's chambers = free wedding ceremony.

Wow.
I leave for a couple hours and all h*ll breaks loose.
Mimi and Squishy- even with a score card I had trouble following who was doing what to whom.

Squishy- If step sister and bf were married she would be in a lot of trouble for making unfounded allegations. Not ure how that works if you are not married.

Toj- I thought of Beetlejuice as well.(I once worked with a guy who looked a lot like Michael Keaton. Drool, wipe chin with back of hand, but he didn't wear black striped pajamas)

Squishy- is it the 16 year old who is on a mission trip? Has anyone asked her if anything happened?Does she know what her mother is saying?

And , may I say, wow!

They go to a church based school. That might be this close to blasphemy.

Oh, they're not doing that because his family would freak the feck out (he's an only, sheltered child). We told them that if they weren't mature enough to do what they wanted with their own wedding/marriage, they probably weren't ready to get married. And, we told them that they *could* use that as a bargaining chip--as in "Hey (Fiance's parents), if you're insisting we have a church wedding with a reception, how much are you chipping in?".

They didn't like either of those scenarios. >:-D

They tentatively decided to get hitched near his family in NW Indiana, because he has a lot of elderly relatives. That made my MIL mad because she thought SIL wasn't thinking of *her* elderly relatives. Who don't live in town and would have to travel regardless if it was here or up there. Ha!

I will give my MIL credit for butting the hell out when we were planning our wedding. She'll be bringing the full crazy for this one, though.

Best line from Family Guy last night, just shared with two coworkers who laughed their butts off:

Quagmire gets settled into bed with his laptop. "Ah internet porn, I haven't done this in two weeks. I should weigh myself before and after."

Second best line came from Bob's Burgers:

Eugene: "Antrax tastes like babies!"

Did she butt out, or did J just insulate you from her?:)(Or maybe it's different since that was a son (and older) getting married, rather than a young daughter.

No, she really didn't interfere. Yeah, I think that was the difference, the age/gender thing. And she still had SIL at home to keep her occupied with enough drama.

Bob's Burgers is hilarious. I think there's laugh out loud moments in every show for me.

I was telling one friend about it, and he's like "Isn't that show kind of...weird?" Have we met? Of course it's weird.

Nick tried talking one night when Bob's Burgers was on (he talks as much as any chick talks). Finally had to tell him to stfu if he expected to get any later on.

Wow, squishy, that's so terribly alarming. And the worst part is that there is nothing that you can do about it. I just was reading Wayne And Tamara right before I saw your post - and their column this week was how impossible it is to break people out of horrible relationships until they are ready.

So all you can do is protect yourself (or possibly the minor child - but all you have is hearsay - so you probably couldn't even help there)
