Our processional/recessional was a live dixieland band.

Our reception was iPod: rat pack-ish stuff, and some bossa nova.

"Our" wedding song was Tom Waits' "Nobody", as in "Nobody will ever love you... The way that I love you... 'Cuz nobody's that strong..."

The father/daughter song WAS NOT PICKED BY EITHER MYSELF OR MY WIFE.  It was that horrible and creepy "I Loved Her First."  If you haven't heard it, do yourself a favor and do not google.

The dancing was a mixture of our favorites, and guest input by way of their RSVP cards having a space to request a song.  Huge mixture of styles, with at least one song at least one person would want to dance to.

I'm in the Singapore airport, and my feet hurt.

I will be here until 8:50 am. I think it's currently somewhere around three.

You made it!

Hold on, the German dudes are THERE, and you went to dinner with them and LILLIE?


Truly, your last fucks have flown.

"Free" implies the absence of manipulation, so say "Thank you," accept, and move on.


Your question obviously presumes more devious intent, though.

I just had my line manager take my hand and "jokingly" slap it, like you would with a naughty child.

Dear fucking God this place is putting my poker face to the test.

Um.

Wow.



How did you manage not to punch them in the throat?

Great ending line on that one.

I agree with the others.  I like the tone of this one.

American ignorance cropping up here: Is Hungary part of the EU?

Fan-tas-tic.

And it looks like the Roma are still being treated like the Other.

This morning's Krugman was guest-posted by someone else, and it was the first I heard about what's going on in Hungary. 

I'm not sure I completely follow, but it appears the constitution says that a two-thirds vote is needed for most major policy changes, and the ruling party has had that majority for about five years, just losing it slightly in the last election.

While usually this would be good news, in forcing the ruling party to work with other coalitions to get things done, there's evidence they're now working with a far-right neo-fascist party in order to get laws passed.

Not sure what's going on here, but it sure smells bad.

Ah.  So it actually makes some sort of sense, somewhat.
