Allow me to blow your minds for a moment, internets. Did you know that planning a wedding, for the most part, is a giant pain in the ass? Oh, wait, you probably already knew that. Oh well. You probably appreciate having unblownapart minds, so you're welcome. It's probably hard to think with an blownapart mind. Most days, I have a hard enough time thinking with an unblownapart mind.
But I digress. My point is, wedding planning = ass pain. That's what I'm saying. There are very few things I care about outside of, you know, Joe being there. Flowers make me yawn. Centerpieces bore me. I can't be bothered with placecards or premarital counseling or table numbers or zzzzzzzzz sorry I fell asleep.
Now before you're all, "But Jennie, why don't you just elope?" I will tell you that if we did that, as soon as we got back we'd be viciously axe murdered by most of our relatives, not to mention, I don't know, I like my family and I obviously like my friends so why wouldn't I want to get them all together and have a big party? THERE IS NO RAISIN NOT TO. We will eat, drink, and be merry, dammit, and also maybe people will tell me I'm pretty and who doesn't like that?
The eating and drinking and being merry, now, that I am all about planning and I will tell you why:
I like food
I like booze
I like dancing (provided there is booze)
Which brings me to one of the more pleasant planning experiences: picking songs. You know why that's pleasant? Because it gives me an excuse to mindlessly scroll through my iPod, screeching, "I LOVE THIS SONG," every five minutes but like, DUH, of course I love this song IT'S MY IPOD.
So far we've picked out the song to our first dance and I've picked out several options for a father/daughter dance, none of which are so sappy that they make me want to gouge out my eyes and stuff them in my ears so I can't hear the butterfly kisses, GO AWAY BUTTERFLY KISSES, and do you know how hard it was to find a father/daughter dance song that wasn't either super sappy or COMPLETELY INAPPROPRIATE? OK, it wasn't really that hard but it was sort of hard because I don't like country music haha ZING I don't know. I wanted my dad and I to learn the Thriller dance but when I suggested it, he looked at me like I had three heads, which isn't unusual but I've learned to take that as, "Jennie, that idea is crazy and/or impossible so it's time to stop talking." Anyway. I can't share what either of those songs are, though, because some people don't like spoilers. I am not one of those people, unless they are LOST spoilers, in which case if you tell me, I kill you, got it? Good.
Since I can't share the first dance song, which might be my favorite song EVER but really that depends on my mood so I JUST DON'T KNOW, but since I can't share that song, I will share with you my favorite song to run to. Or to kill zombies to. Here it is:
