if i had time


i'd go geek it out!



One of the reasons I wanted to learn to crochet is to be able to tat (this is a verb, tatting:knitting) beautiful items like this (butterfly from digital leaf studio). There's a tatting group on Ravelry that has quite a few wonderful finished objects to gawk at.

fiance asked me...


... whether I would want his brother to be a bridesmaid. Though funny, I doubt MG's bro would shave his pits for a strapless bridesmaid dress. So, probably not, MG. Probably not.

procession songs


  1. Bach's Unaccompanied Cello Suite in G Major (if only I could get Yoyo Ma...)
  2. Wagner's Elsa's Procession to the Cathedral. Here's a drum corps version. There's also a couple of solo piano versions on the internet (here's a sample, yes that is Hitler).
  3. Forrest Gump theme for piano. Heck, I know three people off the top of my head that can play this well on the piano.
  4. Kissin's Pictures at an Exhibition, for a weightier entrance.
  5. (Darkhorse) Gustav Holst's Mars would kinda be fun, too. Though the subtitle "Bringer of War!!!" isn't really conducive to weddings, I guess.
  6. That one song in high school that we played but whose name escapes me. I might have to go back to the band classroom to look it up in the library.
So all you instrument-playing friends of mine, get yo arses ready to be put to work. Unless all you can play is Canon in D. Then you're already fired. Because the world doesn't need another wedding with someone playing that song. Speaking of which:

Pretty Songs Nixed Due to Overplay
  1. Canon. Though this song always reminds me of My Sassy Girl, it seems everyone and their mother plays this song at their wedding.
  2. Appalachian Spring. Lovely, but also gets around like Paris Hilton.
  3. Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring. I loved playing this song on the oboe, way back when.
  4. Ave Maria. Unless someone can write "Ave Fert"


... an illusion vase. Or any of illusion products at Uncommon Goods.
... and ice orb.
