Superbride

Today I...

...wrote six thank you letters.

...diffused a radioactive MIL-bomb.

...created a seating chart for 68 people, 24 of whom don't like at least one other person attending.

...sent my engagement and wedding rings in to be sautered together.

...spent 15 minutes googling the word "sauter" because it just didn't look right, only to find out from Bob in the comments that it's "solder". Duh.

...created a final "to do before I dos" list. Top four list items: groomsman gifts, disposable cameras, sparklers, magically get a tan in two weeks. Does anyone know what to get a 13 and 15 year old groomsman?

...sent Hoop off to pay our rental chair bill. OUCH.

...watched a few horrible videos of things I really hope don't happen on our big day.

...completed the above all before 1pm.

Countdown to wedding: TWO WEEKS!

In Other News: I met up with a girlfriend for lunch today. Our waiter was some squirrely bald dude who had the memory of a goldfish. He had us repeat our order twice and asked us if we wanted to-go drinks three times. Then he followed us to the pay counter and declared that he could cash us out at the table. I refused to go back, forcing him to ring us up at the counter while the cashier looked on helplessly. Then he gave me the wrong receipt and gave my friend back the wrong change. Just as we were preparing to flee, the guy turns to me and stutters, "Are you single?" I don't wear my ring for ONE day and look what happens! The funniest part was, I think his coworkers were more horrified than I was. They all stopped what they were doing to hear my answer. It was no, of course.

Cannibal Kitchen: As some of you may know, Hoop and I are attempting to turn our garage into a Cannibal Kitchen this weekend in preparation for Halloween. I don't know why we promised my brothers we would do this. It's not like we don't have other things going on, like *cough* a WEDDING. But, being the sucker I am for all things Halloween, not to mention the adoration of my little brothers, I am determined to do this. So... I need your help coming up with "menu" ideas. No worries, no one is actually going to be eating this stuff. Here's what we have so far:

EYE candy
BRAIN food
TOE jam
Lady FINGERS
FINGER food

Have a fantastic weekend Homebloys!

here's an idea for your thingy...

Check this out: Spooky Cocktails Page

Of course they are alcoholic drinks (which look disgusting) but you could probably make them virgins...

Look at the Brain Hemorrhage one - so gross.

that's what you get for being so adorable :-)

FYI - it's solder, not sauter.

Hoop should know what 13 & 15 year-old boys would want. If not - ask their mom(s).

You're almost there! I'm so proud of you for this one: diffused a radioactive MIL-bomb. Those are the hardest to be handle and be nice about.

You're going to take lots of pictures of the Cannibal Kitchen, right? That sounds like a hoot - your brothers must love you to pieces. Here's one I found on the internet for you. Severed-head-cheese. *Cough* *Cough* I feel like Beavis and Butthead. ;)

for the 13 and 15 year old groomsmen maybe iTunes gift cards? My brother in law gave everyone a nice small pocket knife. Maybe one of those little multi-tool things would be cool? I'm just Mr. Helpful today, aren't I? haha

Can wait to see pics of the Cannibal Kitchen.

For some reason only lovers terms are coming to mind, like sweet cheeks and sugar lips. That is scary in a completely different way.

Maybe the 13 and 15 year olds would like some of Hoop's playboy cards?

I hope you made sure to sit all haters together. Free entertainment for you guests.

I saw some chocolate eyeballs for sale the other day. Sorry, that's about as helpful as I am here.
Back when I was a kid, they'd stick our hands in a bowl of cold spaghetti and tell us it was brains. Eww! But I'm not one to even watch the Scary Movie flicks, let alone REAL ones. You are an awesome big sister! We beg for pictures! (Maybe some of those wedding guest haters could sit altogether in a mock-up of your Cannibal Kitchen? Might have been easier than Sudoku seating charts!)

I'm incredibly impressed by your diffusion of the MIL bomb.
Don't all young teenage boys like a nice pocketknife?

I'm glad you spelled it "sautered" so I could understand what you were saying. If you'd written it the right way? No so much.

TWO WEEKS!

That's plenty scary enough.

 
At 24 October, 2008, Blogger Reb said...

Don't forget your intestine sausages! How about a jello heart? Eyeball soup served in skulls?

They might want to take a pocket knife to school to show off, but what about watches?

Not easy to diffuse MIL-bombs, glad you did it with all safeties in place!

Creepy waiter - yuck!

I know how to make a pretty scary alcoholic drink called a bloody brain, but I'm guessing that won't fly, due to their ages. :)

I was kind of thinking that cold and damp blocks of tofu could become_________

 
At 24 October, 2008, Blogger LL said...

13 and 15 year old boys? A couple of twelve packs of beer...

Chris... that sounds a lot like a brain hemorrhage... I wonder if they're similar.

OK. Me the Mom and all. Round crackers with Peanut Butter in the middle and then pretzel sticks for legs (coming out of the PB cracker sandwhiches). Raisins for eyes, if prefered.

Um....hamburger rolled into a log roll (2 inches or more) make it wriggly looking and grill it. Call it cooked worms and put it on a bun with Katsup/catchup blood. Or Mustard worm guts. Add additional condiments as wanted.

That's what I got so far. I'm not all hokie-pokie about Halloween. But have kids in school, wanting some celebration.

Fajitas: cooked rib meat served up in mummy skin (tortillas). Kay, a stretch there.

Happy FWFD Friday!!!!

2 weeks!!

how exciting.

I think a couple of 16 year old girls would be perfect for the teen groomsmen ;)

I'm excited for you.

What? No wieners?

You should have zapped the waiter with your laser vision while wearing a cape and utility belt.

Look at you all about to be married and stuff and still brewing up eye candy and brain food. No wonder the absent minded waiter wanted to date you.

Two weeks! EEEEKKKKK! sorry, um, I mean, two weeks, lots of time to tie up loose ends.

 
At 25 October, 2008, Blogger Mike said...

SAUSAGE on a BUN.

 
At 25 October, 2008, Blogger Michael Knight Rambo said...

Cheese BALLS. Rum BALLS.
All sorts of balls.

 
At 25 October, 2008, Blogger coffespaz said...

Two weeks already huh? I'm so excited for you!

About the food...hmmm....how about HEART candy, LIVER snaps, scrambled BRAINS, EARS of corn?

 
At 26 October, 2008, Blogger Orhan Kahn said...

...watched a few horrible videos of things I really hope don't happen on our big day.

You are daring, aren't you ;)

Just make sure there are plenty of pictures for us folks abroad.

Hooray - two weeks to go! I'm very excited for you :)

Some kind of sausage entrails. I've heard you can peel off the outer rind of the cantaloupe (also the green rind inside) and sculpt brains out of it. 13 and 15 year old groomsmen? iTunes gift cards.

 
At 26 October, 2008, Blogger YellowRose said...

Two weeks and counting! You are brave watching the videos...I saw one the other day...you aren't getting married by a pool are you? LOL

 
At 27 October, 2008, Blogger Tawcan said...

Sounds like you accomplished lots stuff. Two weeks to go? Oh how exciting! I hope you post the wedding pics on here. :)

 
At 27 October, 2008, Blogger rudecactus said...

Wow. Busy. I think we'll definitely need pictures of that cannibal kitchen.

 
At 27 October, 2008, Blogger Jiff said...

Definitely gift cards to Best Buy, or a store like that. They can buy CDs, DVDs, video games, etc.

Sounds like a fun Halloween thing!

 
At 27 October, 2008, Blogger J said...

You can actually buy a jello mold that is in the shape of a brain (and other organs too, I think). The jello is watermelon flavored, and is colored to come out pinkish-grey. Stick it on a plate, and decorate with strawberry syrup. I saw this at a Halloween party a few years ago, and I was the only one with the guts (Ha!) to eat it.

2 weeks! Squeeee! I'm so excited for you...

We don't really do halloween in my home countries so I'm not much help. Have fun and I hope you feel better soon ;-)

I know there's much more to comment on here, but OHMYGOD, your wedding is in 2 weeks already?!! How has time flown by so fast?! That's so exciting!!!!!! :)

 
At 28 October, 2008, Blogger Aunt Jackie said...

Sounds very hectic... Glad it's not ME!! :) But I'm very happy for you. It will all be over soon and you'll be going through those "after wedding" blues in no time.

I hope you have a good photographer. Too bad it's not my coworker, Nathan. If anyone needs a good one, he's the man!

Hey this close to halloween and my captcha says "SPOOK" wow, that's cool!
