The wedding was perfect/in other news

Bride and groom looking excitedly at each other the whole time, good times with family, dancing, dancing, more dancing, and the perfect balance between the religious and the secular, imo. And microfiber tights totally don't suck. And my cousin's wife is the coolest, and so is when everyone (all the parents who are exes) play so nicely together because they remember it's about their kid. Any tension left over from recent stuff related to my immediate family was also addressed and dissipated, and my father did a nice job as mesader kedushin and gave a great speech. Kedoshim lends itself to good speeches. It's one of my favorite parshas (parshiot?).

In other news, I've discovered that when faced with the possibility of hashkafic compatibility, I lose power of speech. It's ridiculous. I have to get over that. People are human. If I can't hold a conversation, there's no way I'll ever be able to do more than that. I did get to see some great music, though. ((consolation prize))


  1. "I've discovered that when faced with the possibility of hashkafic compatibility, I lose power of speech."

    Me too! If the guy is way frummer than me, or not at all frum, I can chat away. If he might actually be a good fit for me, I become mute.

  2. well, thank you. it's nice to know I'm not the only one. Now I just need to figure out how to get over it. At the risk of making myself look any more foolish, I will try to refrain from sharing my stupidity any further. I know a couple of guys who are more observant than me whom I kind of like, but I'm able to correspond with them well enough. I think I just need to relax. Times like this make me wish that I could drink/smoke to chill me out enough to hold a conversation. I'll have to find a way to do that naturally. (nothing against drinking and smoking, I'm just a terrible lightweight and it makes me stupid, so I don't, anymore. to each his own.)
