sxsw and dance

I had assumed that friends who never left comments don't read my LJ. Apparently I'm wrong. It's odd bumping into a friend who knows what's going on in your life and you don't really know what's going on in theirs cos they don't update their LJ (Update your LJ!).

Saturday I had planned to go to Val's Monster party as Bridezilla! Even made a fake veil and everything. However, before the party I went to SXSW's viewing of: Opus Jazz (a jerome robbin's movie) with several Ballet Austin folks. My fav was the short before the movie: "Keep Dancing" which is about these 90 year old dancers who still dance. It was so sweet, and so inspiring. But after that, we hung out for drinks. I got to go to the Austin 360 condos which is faaaancy. And then to someone's house after and before we knew it, it was 3 am. I had such a lovely night.

Though it would've been fun to be a Bridezilla Monster! "This is the -wrong- shade of blue! The centerpieces are crooked!!"

Or to be an Austin Hippie Bridezilla Monster! 

"My wedding is more eclectic then your wedding!!"
"I knitted this wedding dress from sheep I raised since childhood!"
"You got your food from where? All my food, including the pig, were locally grown in my parent's backyard!"

Sunday I had ambitious plans for, more partying.... but instead Andy and I stayed home and recuperated most of the day. I'm getting old. I can only handle one crazy night a weekend.

although I am thinking of knitting myself something for the wedding - probably not a whole dress though...

I just love how Austin-ites compete on being more weird/eclectic/different :)

It's all good though. I think a hand knitted wedding dress sounds awesome, to be honest.

Or a handknitted heirloom quality lace stole.

Re: you make me laugh out loud
I'm leaning towards knitting a lace veil, but the idea of knitting that much lace makes me want to cry and set things on fire in frustration. I'd have to really concentrate, not drink, watch tv, talk to people or listen to the radio to knit that much lace, and - honestly - that doesn't sound like any fun at all.

I'm already planning on getting married outside, in a park somewhere, maybe that involves having people hike-in, so getting more earthy than that would be too much.

I'm one of those. I've been keeping up, but I just feel so overdrawn everywhere that I haven't been posting OR commenting.

And I agree wholeheartedly, re Austin Hippie Bridezilla Monster. :]

I keep up with bits of you (140 char bits) on twitter and facebook :)

Though sometimes it's a bit bewildering, like when one of you write a sad/despairing tweet, and I have an urge to call you to make sure you're okay, but feel it would be weird to do that after not seeing you guys for ages.

We need to fix this. I think Cassie and I are hanging out at her house next tuesday night. She's helping me with her beautiful handwriting to do some name cards/menu items, and I'm bringing wine and chocolate and adult conversation. You guys should join us and just hang if you're free.

Aww crap. I'm sorry to get back to you so late on this -- I thought I had and then I saw this still in my inbox. We're going to be out of town tomorrow night and driving back on Wednesday (yes, I'm crazy, I'm going to Dallas to get my hair worked on).

While I'm insanely curious as to what constitutes "adult conversation" ;] , I'll have to miss it. And chocolate. And you.

I will see you sooo-oooo-ooooon though!

oh, i would have loved to see you as Bridezilla! Though you're probably better off not to have come- I was sick with some sort of stomache thing that's been going around, and several other people have caught it. Monster bug.
