So, how's it going, you ask?

Let's just say the bubble hasn't burst. And yet, because I am a crazy person, at least once each day I become convinced, for no discernible reason, that it is going to burst ANY MINUTE NOW. What the hell is wrong with me? I am working on relaxing and enjoying things as they come. And I am at least managing to keep the crazy inside, where it belongs, and not inflicting it on those around me. Heh.

I did survive my first evening excursion to "the other side of town," so there's that. Hee.

How was the lesbian wedding? Well, it was just lovely. It was much more formal than I was expecting, for some reason. Singing Lesbian wore a full-length formal white gown, complete with train and veil. Non-Singing Lesbian wore a black tux. My friend Jewish Jazz Singer Lesbian sang a beautiful song. The priest made several pithy remarks in his sermon that really resonated with me (in my current bubbly/terrified state). It was maybe the most diverse group of people I've ever seen assembled in a church (and no, Cute Church Guy was not there--hardly any actual members of the church were--I guess they were hesitant to invite people unless they knew how they felt about the whole gay marriage issue). And afterwards there was cake, and a bowl of The Punch of a Different Color. (Seriously, every time we looked up there was a different brightly-colored flavor of punch in that bowl. JJSL and I amused ourselves by imagining that it was magical punch, like the horse in the Wizard of Oz. Hee.) So congrats to the girls. May they live a long and happy life together.

May we ALL live long and happy lives. Not too much to ask, is it? (Universe--I'm talking to you. Yeah, you.)

I remember that paranoid feeling from my single days. I'd tell you to stop worrying...But I recall that doesn't work. Enjoy the bubble...

I love your classification of the gals from church. "Jewish Jazz Singer Lesbian" put it over the top for me...As though there is an entire line of lesbian barbies about to come out on the market, and you can collect them all. I'm sure you would somehow be included in the collection as well "Non lesbian who fits in nonetheless" and her "Equally hetero male friend", who comes with his own apartment across town. :)

I hate that "waiting for the other shoe to drop" feeling. I think I get more cautious and skeptical the older I get.

And I was totally going to make a Barbie reference in response to your lesbian labels, but I see 3Cs beat me to it! :-)

OMG, I need a Jewish Jazz Singer Lesbian friend, stat.

Actually, come to think of it... I have a Half-Jewish Choral Singer Lesbian friend! Yay me!

Gee girl! You do need to relax, seriously! And "the other side of town" wasn't so bad, now was it?!

The wedding sounded interestingly different, especially the punch and your description!

How's Wiley doing? Hasn't returned yet? Good.

I think that bubble might burst before yours...but let's hope that they all keep up there. ;-)

3car, I love the idea of lesbian Barbies. And gay Kens. Oh wait...that ship has pretty much sailed already, hasn't it? Hee.

stef, it's true. It's harder to be idealistic when you've been around the block a time or two. Or three. ;)

sass, singing lesbians for everyone! Hee.

stinky, you're right, you're right. I'm trying really hard to relax. "I think I can, I think I can." Wiley is still with my friend--don't know for how much longer, but I'm grateful for every Wiley-free day!

I was so worried about the burst bubble, so Birmingham and I decided that we would break up on a specific date, since dating was obviously scary for both of us. Four years later, we're still together, although I do get nervous on February 21st every year...

I did discover, though, that I have a pinched nerve or strained muscle in my neck that was causing the headaches. Obviously that is totally unrelated to taking phentermine.
