Oh cr**, what did we just do?!?

Another set of photos by another friend. (Beginning with an especially funny one--I think we were actually talking about the wind).

There--now you can see our "catalog" photo. What we're advertising I'm not sure.

As for once I could not be the one compulsively wielding the camera, I am depending on the wedding photos of others. Like Argot, for now.

Despite a number of last-minute and midnight disasters including multiple automobile breakdowns, cake collapsages, and disappearing volunteers, this turned out to be a smashing success. Possibly the best wedding and reception ever. Lots and lots of people took photos, so--more later. Probably quite a bit later. For now, back to the honeymoon.

Finally finished that report and gave the client his feedback about the results and my recommendations. Now I just have to deliver the written report to the office on campus that helps students with disabilities. (Campus mail takes DAYS so I hand-deliver them.)

Started the day weeping on the phone to TheLimey (in Florida) about how freakin' overwhelmed I am with work, moving, wedding details. If only just one of those things wasn't going on! I seem to be getting a sore throat and cough, too. Must find time to rest properly, or I am going to be miserably sick for my wedding and honeymoon, thus trumping anything anyone else could possibly do to "ruin" it. (Yes, you know who you are--all of you!)

Have just realized that a number of the last-minute desperate items I have recently ordered to be delivered to my new address (so I for sure get them) are completely inaccessible to me. This is because I still don't have my own key to the mailbox, and TheLimey is in another state until Thursday. With the only key.

Dangit!! Horribly inconvenient and frustrating.

I can even see that there is something already in the package box.

Can't play as much bloggie as usual.

Still moving, and have a big WAIS-MMPI client report I'm supposed to be writing over the weekend. Actually, I'm kind of panicking, because this kind of report is likely to take 10 or so hours to write; it's already 8pm on Sunday, and my office and reference stuff still isn't set up or even unpacked.

I have been trying to get assessment clients all summer, and naturally they show up only during the last two weeks before the wedding, which is conveniently also exactly when I'm moving.

Also in the "highly convenient" category is that TheLimey is having to spend these same two weeks in Florida for work, though he managed to get away and fly back here for Saturday and part of today (the morning part). This means that while we both have a ton of work to do, the two additional things (wedding preparations and moving all my stuff to his place) are going to be a lot harder for him to participate in. Are being a lot harder for him to participate in. Although being a hard-working and reliable sort of bloke, he's done all he can when here.

Kind of a flood of carp for both of us. And by carp, I mean another word that has mostly the same letters, but is a lot less fun to find in your local river.

I need to see more details about this research before I'm going to accept that whatever's being produced is in fact "high-quality industrial steel".

In completely insignificant news, I found that really exists. I love the Simpsons.

In more significant news, I discovered that the salary I thought psychologists make was a little low, at least for this area. I guess TheLimey was not just making up encouragements, but actually may have a chance at being a stay-at-home dad! To see what I would make if I lived by you, enter your zip code here.

Unbelievable, but I think I am over the pain of the past two presidential elections. Over in the sense that I am ready to look ahead and start fighting again. It can't happen a freakin' third time, can it? Please god.

I do think a "Jeb vs. Hillary" race would make a good flick.

Native English (?) Speakers

Not pictured is how TheLimey subsequently began calling the item in question a "swimming suit" rather than a "swim suit".

This made me imagine that one would have to take care to keep it away from water when not being worn, as it might well swim off under its own steam!
