For those of you who do not know, the Imperial Wedding is tomorrow afternoon.  I shall create Welsh Girl the Basilissa of all my dominions.  At 4PM CST, let all the bells sound, let all my subjects know joy for the Imperial Union shall commence. 

Indeed, people are massing and the families are descending.  Errands have been run few more remain.    We have enough wine and beer to float a river barge sitting in our living room.  It is almost all finished.  And, boy, will I be glad when it's done.  

And now I have to pack a bag of clothes.  I won't be staying at home the next couple of nights...

But best of luck if you can't manage to wriggle out of it ;-)
It is unlikely that the good of a snail should reside in its shell: so is it likely that the good of a man should?
Have you delegated to your seneschal? by Rogerborg (4.00 / 1) #2 Sat May 03, 2008 at 06:07:04 AM EST
Because as of right now, you should be basking in the joy of your impending nuptials, not playing audience or arbiter for other people's dramas.

Also: demand tribute.

Let it be known that in celebration of His August Majesty's impending shackling, that Roger of Borg did quaff of the grape-wine for the first time in seven and one half terran cycles.  And the grape-wine was good.  So goes the portents.

Old joke by Rogerborg (4.00 / 4) #9 Sat May 03, 2008 at 09:43:09 AM EST
Best man: Why are you smiling?
Bridegroom: I've just had the best blowjob ever!

Bridesmaid: Why are you smiling?
Bride: I've just given my last blowjob ever!

Good luck.

we await your commands, O great one! by clock (4.00 / 2) #8 Sat May 03, 2008 at 09:38:15 AM EST
and do you know where a guy whose wife inadvertently moved and thus sabotaged the packing of his dress shirt which matches a very specific tie might fine a replacement in time?

scratch that.  it's under control.

and if you need to unload some of that beer a little early...

I agree with clock entirely --Kellnerin

But make sure that you're carrying the goodladywife in your arms before you set out. ;)

Congratulations. I love seeing romances from start to permanence, and we get to see so many of them here.

Just saying.

But may you and the basileia have many years!
