Blogging Rampage

Well, as you can see I've posted all sorts of things this evening. That's for two reasons. First, we have a new laptop and it's working!!!!! WHooooo hoooo! Of course, since Brandon's primary computer is his desktop, this one it pretty much mine. Some of you laugh, but I heard this information straight from the horse's (a very handsome one) mouth! I distinctly heard him say, "This computer is primarily for educational pursuits of our family." That means that as head teacher, it's really mine. Right?? Ok, so second, we are on our little jaunt to the South for two family weddings and are currently enjoying the benifits of high speed internet, something that we in the boonies of NH only dream of.

Wedding explanations for the ignorant:

Derek, Brandon's brother is getting married to a lovely Melissa this weekend. They will reside in Greenville, SC and that's where the wedding is being held. So we are forced into a hotel for three nights of luxury. Later this month, the end of it in fact, my brother Jeff is getting married to a lovely Fritha. There wedding is going to be held in Florida and they are planning to live in Pennsylvania for the immediate future. ( I think) There plans, as always, can change at a moments notice!

So, here we are. We had a great overnight at the Lackie's house in VA. They have three boys and though they are older than all of ours, they did a marvelous job of keeping our youngsters entertained.

Tomorrow we head to the zoo for a little outdoor activity and then to the rehearsal dinner. Jonathon is the only family member in the wedding!?! As the ring bearer of course, so we will all be attending the rehearsal and dinner for his cause. The wedding sounds like it is going to be pretty relaxed. They are having it in a park nearby and instructed all of us to be casual. There are rumors that the bride and groom are actually going to be barefoot, so that tells you how casual. In fact, with the get up they asked Jonathon to wear (black slacks, white dress shirt, black bow tie), he may actually be the most dressed up person at the wedding. I figured that for a casual wedding he could just wear his dump truck t-shirt and a pair of blue jeans that look pretty nice since I patched both the knees. What to ya'll think?

Ok, gotta run, but before I go, in fulfillment of a commitment here's the little game I played and agreed to post on my own blog:

Leave your name or id yourself somehow in a comment and...
1. I'll respond with something I like about you.
2. I'll tell you what song or movie reminds me of you.
3. I'll ask you a question.
4. I'll tell you my first/clearest memory of you.
5. I'll say something that only makes sense to you and me.
6. I'll describe our final fight to the death.
7. If I do this for you, you must post this on your blog.

See ya later.

What if you don't have a blog? Does that disqualify you?
