Love, exciting and new...ok, semi-exciting, semi-new
Aron and I went to his coworkers wedding last night. It was a lovely event. They were married in a beautiful church (think stained glass windows and ornate decorations in the church). Then we went downtown to a gorgeous building on the riverfront for the reception. The building was all glass and overlooking the riverfront. Our dinner was an artful display of chicken something or other, mashed potatoes, and green beans. Tasty. After dinner while we were all mingling, I enjoyed watching the DJ in the corner playing air drums to Tom Sawyer by Rush. It was a beautiful moment--I had a flashback to my senior year of bandcamp when one of the counselors (think blonde mullet with black roots on a 6 1/2 feet tall 165# guy with his front teeth on his bottom lip play air drum to Tom Sawyer while my band director took flashlights and acted like they were strobe lights . Ok, um, how do you spell LOSER again?? Oh yes.). Anyhoos, I lost the table bet on what the bride and groom's first song would be. I chose At Last by Etta James, someone else had From This Moment by Shania Twain, etc, etc. I can't remember what the song actually was but no one had chosen it. Dang. The DJ also didn't play Celebrate by Kool and the Gang. What DJ doesn't play Kool and the Gang?? I guess the kind that plays air drums in the corner. It was an enjoyable event but I spent way too much time talking about Aron's work.
