my anniversary...

... women are a sentimental lot; we love anniversaries. Personally, I enjoy any reason to eat cake and get drunk. Today being no exception... the 5th anniversary of my divorce being finalized.

So to honor the day, gaze upon me in my wedded organza splendor.


Eat your heart out, Digi.

I'm not big on frills and flowers, but in this case I'll make an exception. Lovely picture.

That's really very cute in a sort of Bride-dressing-in-anticipation-of-her-Honeymoon-in-Vegas sort of way.

To add... this is not a photo of me.

I eloped and was married on the Gulf Shore, commonly referred to as the Redneck Riviera, officiated by a rastafarian who may or may not have been high.

If I marry again, Thom is will be my maid fo honor and I hope to have Terry give me away. Digi of course, will be on hand to make sure everyone is probably inebriated.

I would also hope to procur the service of Fr. Erik as celebrating vicar.

It will be a grand affair.

I'll be wearing a pepto bismol pink pleather miniskirt with a tube top. To the reception. I would never dress like that at church!

Jesus, CC, I thought swans were protected in the Carolinas. Who killed the one they superglued to the top of your head? I like the pearls detail, though, to make sure that sumbitch stays on!

Thom Curnutte said...

If I'm your maid of honor, I get to pick my own suit!

I'll also need vegetarian accomodation at the reception. :-p

Wow, underneath all that "fluff" you are BEAUTIFUL! And you have great teeth too :)--too bad it's not you!

I went to Vegas when I got married, of course later, we made it REAL when I was baptized Catholic--just the two of us, in church, in front of the priest--with two witnesses. All that "fluff" costs money--I'd rather spend it on a vacation.

And the next time you get married--you won't need to get properly inebriated--because the next one is going to be the "right" one!

Have you learned none of the benefits of divorce?
(a future blog post, I am sure, and likely to lead to the greatest number of comments ever).

The Anniversary. Forget it

The Birthday. What day was that? Who cares!

The In-Laws. The Pope wiped out Limbo as we knew it, but In-Laws still remind us of Hell.
Forget them.

Buying the spouse a Christmas gift?
Sorry, no more money for you, bud.

Fighting, shouting, yelling?
The Peace on Earth from Christmas now lasts year round!

Father's Day?
Well, this country never celebrated dads in the first place, so no loss there.

There's a start for a new blog post. DO banish the anniversary from your mind.

My ex contacted me on our anniversary, 15 of the first 16 years of divorce. She was remarried 10 of those years.
Once she said "You are gold and he is silver", so I reminded her that silver was used to betray Christ too, and as for gold, more money for you!

I found black balloons with ships that looked like two Titanics going in opposite directions.
We were "Two Ships Passing in the Night....some stowaway kids showed up from somewhere to live with me).

I had the balloons filled with helium, poked a hanger in the ground all up and down the driveway
(two cars wide kind), and tied the helium ballons to the upside-down hangers in the ground. It was a lovely party!

"Forget the former things;
Do not dwell on the past.
See I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do
you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the desert
and streams in the wasteland."
~~~Isaiah 43:18-19

Listen to God on this Carolina.
It is in His blog, Old Testament.

Happy anniversary. May you someday replace this anniversary with one you don't have to celebrate alone... cake and booze are best shared :)

Terry Nelson said...

So... I'm so glad the photo is not you.

I'll be happy to walk you down the aisle and give you away.

Please invite the Ratafarian guy again.

CC- In your original caption, you said that is you in the photo. Now you say it isn't. This is all very confusing. Well, whoever she is, the gal in that photo is really, really pretty, and looks pretty happy, too.

Concur w/ Tara. Keep it simple, keep it small, keep the money. People think a wedding has to be a big, expensive wing-ding, but it doesn't. If you want to throw a big catered dinner party for a couple hundred friends and relatives, knock yourself out, but don't confuse that with the actual wedding. The vows only take a minute or two, even if embedded in the order of a nuptial mass.


Carolina Cannonball said...

p&b... just like that "you can't afford me" pictures wasn't of me. Confusion is part of my feminie mystique.

that, of course, was a joke.

Lee Strong said...

Hmm. That outfit might be in violation of canon law. If not, it should be!

Where you able to get an anullment?

Carolina Cannonball said...

I didn't need one, my ex-husband was a Catholic who married me, an unbaptized heathen. It was never valid from the very start.

Sorry I am confused.

Don't you have to be baptised to be a Catholic.

How can a baptised man be a heathen?

Are you saying that it was a defect of form and he was a non Christian?
