What a Wonderful World (NATE MADE THE “B” HONOR ROLL!)

November 5, 2006 at 9:28 pm (Memories)

Well, a little over 12 hours ago I dropped Aimee at the airport to catch her flight back to San Fran, then drove home. I was very tired but also very happy to have spent some time with Aimee and to have met Julie and Rick and help Regan and Kevin celebrate their nuptials. Wow, what a shindig! And of course, because I’m the Peach and Aimee is Aimee and Julie is Julie, some irreverence had to take place.

With extreme forethought, Regan placed us at the table with the dude who gave the dinner blessing, leading us to believe he was a minster. I tried to mind my manners, but somehow misplaced them. I really did try to keep a civil tongue in my head but when they brought that small calf of sacrifice (roast beef), I couldn’t help but say, “HOLY SHIT!” Bwhwhahahahahahahaha. And yes, I did dance with Santa Claus who was a very good dancer to have had both of his legs crushed at some point. And, I asked him and he was gracious enough to indulge me. I have boobs, it helps.

The music was just faboo. Older and newer jazz and R& B tunes including, “A Kiss to Build A Dream On,” “What a Wonderful World,” and “Georgia On My Mind.” Ya’ll might be surprised to find that deep down, somewhere, Nanner is actually quite romantic in subtle ways. If you want Nanner to melt into a big pile of Peach mush at your feet, play this kind of music. It would be kind of hard to dance with me as a big pile of Peach mush, but it is possible. Ask Julie. I’m sure some peeps thought we were a couple or were confused to see us dancing cheek to cheek and then her dancing with Rick… oh well. She looked HAWT by the way. See. regans-wedding-001.jpg

And Aimee and I looked darling and Regan, she was just beautiful beyond words. Her brother Evan gave the funniest and, ahem, tear inducing toasts I’ve ever heard. It included the word “nipples.” You can only imagine. But yes, I did get a bit teary-eyed cuz I’m a big pile of Peach mush. It’s wonderful to see my friends happy and glowing. Regan also hooked me up with a jewelry store owner, not sure if anything will come of it but its an opportunity and when opportunity knocks, I open the door. regans-wedding-002.jpg



But, that was Saturday night and Friday night was interesting as Aimee had her flights changed and that turned out to be a good thing due to some problems with one of my articles and then I thought she was coming in at 9:15 and it was actually 8:04 or something like that and I was still in WV at 5:00 and it’s a 3 1/2 hour drive. Did you do the math? However, because we rock, when Aimee called me and asked where I was, I was exactly 4 miles from the exit to the airport. Yes, we rock. Then we tried to find Rick and Julie and couldn’t and were hungry so we ate. I was checking out our hot, hot waiter. Yum. And then we slept.

And Saturday Julie, Aimee, and I set out in search of Terrible Towels and Steeler sweatshirts. Then we ate a lot of food and had a lot of drinkage on the table, as in water, coffee, tea and concoctions of Sprite and fruit juice and just plain orange juice. Then we went to Target and I found some hawt boots and then off we went in search of yarn and I was inspired to learn to crochet… you know… since I HAVE SO MUCH TIME TO LEARN A NEW CRAFT! I found the Wal*Mart later and got a “Learn to Crochet” book. You know, you CAN crochet with beads…. and I found some cool camo pants and wanted to dress in my new hawt combat looking boots, camos, and my Black Stone Cherry t-shirt as I had warned Regan I might but I didn’t. I wore them later and Regan showed her cleavage. See. regans-wedding-008.jpg

Then after the reception we all knitted and crocheted and talked and just chilled out and spent time together and that is a cool thing. I love you guys! It’s a change for me to actually have peeps to hang out with who are into crafts the same way I am or just hang out with peeps who want to laugh and cut-up and have a good time. Trust me, the minute I walked through T-Bird’s door to pick up my house key, it was a 15 minute speech on why her weekend was so shitty. I came home and wrote four pages about my trip to Columbus which I posted over at WordPress but it’s posted under “Friends” so if you’re not added as a friend, you can’t read it. I might post it here tomorrow.

Oh, and NATE MADE THE “B” HONOR ROLL! Yes, we’re so proud and he’s proud and there has been such a change in him, even since Friday morning. He seemed so mature and older when I picked him up today and Jeff was actually very civil and talkative. Oh, what a wonderful world….

    Nice pix! And super-happy for Nate! 🙂

  4. Vince said,

    Congrats to Nate! Big yeah!

    I’m so jealous. You got to hang with some of the cooletst chicks around. You all look fab.

    I also agree with KtP. Jules has great cleavage. But so does ESC. So where was your cleavage?

  5. Ashley said,

    You wrote about so much more than this, but I am just so proud of Nate. You can tell him that I said that. You have a great little boy there and he is showing that hard work pays off.

  6. Celti said,

    Woo hoo – way to go NATE!

    Glad you had such a good time.

  7. kenju said,

    CONGRATS to Nate!

  8. Jeanette said,

    😆 It looks like you had a great and awesome weekend and that’s just awesome and great!

    You know what else? I feel like I just read one huge run-on sentence. And I get the sense that’s kind of how your weekend was? 🙂

  9. Michael said,

    What Jeanette said. It was like Kerouac’s On the Road, minus the hipster doofuses and plus the hot mamas and brilliant little man.

  10. Julie said,

    I look all luminous and glowy in that picture. It’s the polar opposite of the picture ESC took of me while I was flipping the bird.

    Congrats again to Nate – how does he like his Terrible Towel? 🙂

  11. Esther said,

    Everyone looks so happy.

    Congrats to Nate! Big difference from a few months ago

  12. Seamus said,

    Congratulation to Nate! YAAAAAYYYY!

    Looks like you all had a great time! 🙂

  13. Inanna said,

    Camos rock, KtP!

    Julie is awesome, yes, Lisa!

    Thanks RA!

    Vince, I … dunno where my cleavage was. I guess I need to change that.

    Thanks, Ashley, Celti, and Kenju, I’ll let him know.

    Jeanette, one big long run-on sentence they are the best kind afterall.

    Mikey, hot mamma and brilliant little men rock!

    You look faboo Julez! He was surprised but seemed to like it since he slept with it.

    Esther and Seamus, a good time was had by all and I’ll tell Nate your congrats.
