Throw-down dorkstyle.

Just got back from my dinner with Edie, the old friend from Tuxedo Park. Hard to believe it's taken us a year to make this happen. It turns out we have a lot in common these days. It sounds like I may have another friend to do races and hikes with, which would be a good thing. It's funny how we were able to pick up after not having seen each other since, oh, middle school. Maybe it's because we never hung out a lot in middle school but seem to have a lot in common now. And, it turns out, we did in middle school too: we had crushes on all the same boys.

For dinner we tried this Via Tribunali place, and it was pretty good. Not the best pizza of its type I've had -- not even the best in Seattle --but not bad. It's no Otto. (Jake, if you're reading this? Otto is amazing. And I'm not just saying this because it's a Mario Batali kind of week, either.)

I think I found bridesmaid dresses today, and maybe even a dress for me, or at least a pretty good back-up choice depending what else I see this weekend. Which would be good, as I'm having a few other wedding conundrums. This dress is both significantly less expensive than I'd budgeted for and simpler, too, so I feel as though I can/must splurge on some really nice jewelry to accessorize with if I get it. And I know just the jewelry, too.

Maybe I can get us a wedding cake shaped like a TRS-80. Go ahead, I dare you: think of something dorkier than that.

I'm voting for a cake shaped like Darth Vader's helmet. It'll be timely too, since Anakin will have finished his transition less than two months earlier! Yipee!

I'll warn you now. Anything called "bridal" jewelry is going to be ridiculously expensive and will probably bring your ensemble up to budget. I am still shopping for my tiara (shutup, shutup, shutup) and the price is absolutely ridiculous. (I also found my dress for a "very reasonable" price.) But yeah, get yourself some nice jewelry! You deserve it...

Each slice of cake shouldn't take too many bites otherwise you'll get a buffet overflow.
