here's your answer

June 30th, 2007

I know that everyone wants to know when we're getting married, and the simple answer is: I have no idea. Maybe next year, maybe in five years, maybe never.

Weddings are cool, and I'm sure it would be fun, but the truth is that I don't put much stock in them. I've seen too many relationships fall apart to believe that being married will help us in any way. There's no need to have a ceremony to prove that we love each other, it's pretty obvious.

(If) When we do get around to tying the knot, I want to throw a completely over-the-top party for everyone, and not make it all about us. It would be a great excuse to get my scattered family to all gather in one place and be civil to each other for a few days. Although that probably wouldn't happen because many of them have already refused to come to our non-existent wedding unless it is in the Catholic/Evangelical/Lutheran/Insert-religion-here church.

It's not rude to ask, but you should be forewarned that I don't have any enthusiasm for this event.

The only thing I ever dreamed about was becoming a professional artist and having a kick-ass career. I never dreamed of walking down the aisle in a white dress, or being "Mrs.Whatever." In fact, it was the last thing I ever would have bothered to think about.

So there's your answer.
