the whirlwind continues, one wedding down and one to go. i had a great time at the mini-family reunion/vow exchange on sunday. it was good to see relatives i haven't seen for a long time, some up to 13 years or so! other than the one minor sit-com-ish episode where my cousin ponied up 5 bucks for any guy to fill the empty seat beside me and the father of the bride announced it to the entire reception that "brittney" was looking for fresh meat, and hey, you get 5 bucks!... other than that, it was good times, good times.
and now we're on to wedding #2 this weekend, except not a familial member in the blood sense. i've been nominated to be the day-of coordinator, which means i get to make all decisions so the bride doesn't have to. ah, power! mwah-hah-hah
as of today, we're into the single digits on the countdown to j-land. my dances of joy in the hallways at work are appreciated by only a few.

going to the chapel... i mean beach
families are funny. i know everyone in the world thinks they have the strangest family, or, at times, most frustrating, but really, they're all the same. and when families mix (collide?), as we have had a lot of exposure with lately from my sis and bro, politics and dance come into play like nothing i've ever seen. it's crazy.
i think i'm meant to be single forever. i don't think i can take the drama.
that being said, a bit of culmination is happening in t-minus 5 hours. give or take. the big bro is getting married, and bringing with him an entire blonde clan. welcome to the family.

you may have noticed i've been quiet lately, quite on purpose. though symbolic silence is difficult to achieve in this medium, as it appears as if i have just been busy or have nothing to say, i want to declare that i have a LOT to say about many facets of my world. but, as a form of self-preservation, i've chosen to remain mute, knowing that for me, certain situations that warrant a flood of words will only cause harm and therefore it's not worth it, and other situations where a flood of harm has already been established and i just can't find the words, i therefore remain silent and watchful and wait for the right time to express myself. perhaps on a tshirt.

until we can legitimately do this and not be considered weird... well, at least not for doing that.

fashion faux pas
i wore white pants AND white shoes today just to see if someone would say something about it being after labor day... so far, 3 and counting. ugh.
