No I didn't die

So I know I have been awol from here for awhile and all I can say is that I am sorry. I don't expect it will get much better until after the wedding though so don't get your hopes up too high. My best friend Susan is flying in as we speak and we will spent the day together today and then head to Vegas for my bacholerette party this weekend. I wouldn't count on seeing picture evidence of our time there though, you know the rules. I will try to post when I can from now until the wedding as there will be a 3 week silence from me after the wedding. I will post lots of pictures when I return though.

The last up too long post spurred two questions from most of you, the first how I caught on fire. I was to light the last candle at the Thespian Society induction and I was wearing one of those string friendship bracelets that were all the rage in the late 80's early 90's. I had to reach over all the other candles to light mine and when I did so my bracelet dangled into the other candles and caught on fire. Yes it was in front of a lot of people and yes I was very embarrassed. Thankfully my teacher responded very quickly and put me out before my skin actually burned. I have never again wore a friendship bracelet. Come to think of it that may have been the last time I wore any bracelet. I will have to think about that.

The second question was how I accidentally stole something. When I was a teen stores would have sales all the time with limits on them, like soda limit two cases. When this would happen my Mom would stock up on soda but she would bring me so I could get in one line and buy the limit and she would get in another line to buy the limit. My mom handed me the money and sent me to the register. She was still doing something in the back of the store and I went to the front. Not thinking I went right out the door and to the car without ever paying for the soda. I got to the car and started to unload the soda into the trunk, when I saw that I still had the cash in my hand that I was suppose to use to pay for the soda. I wasn't sure what to do but I knew there was no way I wanted to get caught stealing so I put the soda back into the cart and wheeled it back into the store and then into a check out line. As I was paying for the soda the cashier put a thing of tape across the top and said this is so security doesn't stop you for shoplifting. I laughed at that. I put the soda in the car and came back in and told my mom the whole story. She said I should have just left them in the car and not paid for them. I was shocked, this was the same woman who became the scariest thing I had ever seen when my oldest brother got caught stealing and there was no way I wanted to incur that wrath. We did get a good laugh out of the whole situation afterwards. Since I did end up paying for the soda though I am not sure it counts as shoplifting.

The Easter Bunny is a jew?

So we went to my brothers yesterday and then to the Dodgers Giants game. WHen we got back we had to put the little one to bed and then the Easter Bunny needed to come before she woke up. Apparently unbeknowst to all of us the Easter Bunnies special helper is a jew. We had a lot of fun and it was good to spend time with my brother. We were only sad that we wouldn't be there this monring to see the little ones face when she woke up.

Ok so most of you aren't familiar with my love for the silly old bear. When we went to New York they happened to have the original pooh and friends of Christopher Robin. SO I of course made everyone go and see them. If you are wondering that is my smile that says basically this is so cool. I am posting this because I feel like today is kind of a pooh day, a day where you are tired of dealing with the concerns of the adult world and want to return to childhood. Mind you nothing is particularly wrong today it is just that I am feeling a bit over whelmed with all that still needs to be done but hasn't gotten done. SO far though 63 people are actually coming to the wedding. Good night more later. Posted by Picasa
