More Mission colors:

This week's wedding update: locked and loaded for October 13th at Barndiva. We were up there today starting on the arrangements, and even put down a deposit... yikes. I also took a bunch of photos while we were there.

Things are getting serious now. Exactly 200 days to go, and counting.

I'm going to put these in a "colors of the Mission" series, but for now you get to see them one by one:

Wedding planning is in full, although rather unstructured, swing. We decided on a venue in the wine country, which is (thankfully!) much more of a delightful place to get married than its baroque and unnavigable website conveys.

Also a date: October 13th, 2007. Stay tuned.

Tasty, tasty, very very tasty! They're very tasty!

It's been a while since I hung out with any concentration of people who grew up in the UK at the same time as me. But when one does do this, the conversation will inevitably turn to at least one of Rhubarb and Custard, Chigley, Trumpton, the Bran Flakes advert or the one for Birds Eye Steakhouse Grills.

Such conversations aren't new to me.

What's new, though, is that nowadays you can actually dig these things up on the internet and take quite a spooky trip down memory lane:

Dolores Park in the Spring:

A bunch of people have emailed, written and called to congratulate me on my engagement to Wendy, which is very nice. Weddding planning (such as it is) is going pretty slowly, starting with a sleepy conversation in the park about who we might invite, and how big a wedding might result. Baby steps.

Bard sent a link to a blog posting he thought would be helpful; I liked the first item in particular.
