I'm headed up to Ithaca this weekend for Slope Day. Should be a fun time. I plan to be drunk most of the time, starting tonight.

Went to a viewing for a 2 year old little boy yesterday...absolutely terrible. Open caskets really creep me out...he looked like a little doll just laying there.

Young kids dying is tragic for so many reasons, I hope the parents can recover.

So do I. I've known the family forever and they have an older daughter as well. She was sitting by the parents last night and kinda kept making reference to the baby as being a fake doll. It was really sad. The father was an absolute mess.

That is terrible. Sorry you had to deal with that.

I don't think I would have been able to do it. I don't handle those things well...When I have to go I usually stay in the lobby.

Awesome. Are you doing a lot of the planning?

I didn't do anything....I just said "Yes, dear"...a lot.

Yeah, there's somethings I actually care about, but I know that's mostly 'her day'. She's being very accommodating about the things that I actually do care about though and luckily for us the things the other is adamant about aren't the same. Not a single fight about anything wedding related, and we've got all the vendors picked out, flowers, tuxedos, DJ, food, photographer, etc. So we're doing good.

Booked the flights for the honeymoon - up next is a hotel and we're in the home stretch.

Paris is a great time I've heard. Just watch out for the local Frenchies. Very rude apparently.

I just ordered an American made archery product(a set of limbs) from London...With shipping it was cheaper than I can get the very same product anywhere in the US without shipping.

This was at the bottom of the confirmation email:

Quote:
Tax: All prices EXCLUDE all taxes. There are three reasons for this... i) You have ordered books or magazines. or ii) You live outside the EC (Europe) so you do not pay our taxes. Depending on the value of any order you place you may have to pay import
duty when you receive your order. Please ask your local imports/customs depts for advice. or iii) You are a VAT registered EC resident.
I figure the American taxes on this product is increasing the cost by OVER 20%...There are special excise tax on archery equipment above normal taxes...

How messed up is that? I have to go to Europe to buy an American product for about 22% less? I didn't go to them because they were the cheapest, they happen to be the only company who has this product in stock...But when I started looking at the prices I was floored.

It was hard because when we got there the line was outside the funeral home. It's just a sad story all around. Hopefully something I don't have to deal with in life.

Paris is a beautiful place. My best friend and her husband went there for their honeymoon a few years ago and absolutely loved it.

Oh yeah, definitely. It's just expensive. The flights, hotels, etc. And then I know once we get over there to watch the currency because it'll feel cheaper but it's the Euro...

Can you ask them if there was a "must do" thing or anything like that?

Not surprising given the whole mortgage crises/housing bubble/economic downturn.

I do think we have hit bottom on that and expect the rebound to begin shortly.

Prices are def at the point where I think people will start looking to buy again. But will banks be willing to lend? And people who foreclosed will be kept out of the loop for awhile, so that will continue to be an issue.

Couldn't imagine losing a child.

Hate open caskets in general. I'm usually up there thinking "this looks nothing like the person I knew".

At, Cafe Terrace at Night. The precursor to Starry Night, one of the best paintings to ever be completed.

It's down in Provence though, yeah? I'm not going down there for a day or two this trip, Just relaxing inside city limits after the wedding. I plan on returning to France within a few years to do a trip between Provence, and then into Nice and maybe Montreux or Holland or something like that.
