Best idea in wedding planning ever: Cake. Buffet.
Yesterday we went to the place where we're getting our wedding cake (http://www.mikesamazingcakes.com) and sampled a bunch of the things they make. We'd already contracted with them for the design but hadn't selected flavors for cake and icing. We also saw Karthik at Pankaj's birthday gala last night and talked all things DJ. I'm trying not to feel overwhelmed by everything left to be done: flowers, invitations, reception music, registering. Honeymoon planning. Next weekend we're going to knock off invitations and registering at least.
There's an interesting article on Kai von Fintel's semantics blog about academia and the family. You can read it here:
It'll probably be of especial interest to those of you who have been on the academic job market.
