Season Of Weddings - Moratorium

Number of weddings attended in 2009: 7

Weddings that had cheese hors d'œuvre (apparently of huge concern to Matt): 4

Weddings in a church: 2 (1 was in the church we were married in)

Outside Weddings: 3 (1 was in a barn, but that pretty much counts as outside)

Muslim Weddings: 1

Weddings where F-List celebrities (Jon Gosslin) showed up and my mom threatened to go out and give him whatfor: 1

Weddings with live bands: 3 (King Rail was at 2 of those!)

Weddings I played violin at: 2

Weddings where the groomsmen dressed in drag to demonstrate how the married couple met: 1

Total number of outfits worn to the weddings: 5 (2.5 outfits were repeated. The .5 comes into play when I changed after the ceremony because my suit was TOO hot!)

Weddings where dogs were present: 1 (The Bride & Groom's dog was tied to a tree outside the barn, but that was close enough! Plus, friends brought their dog with them whom we were all too happy to pet and love)

Weddings that we may be invited to in 2010: 2 and counting

We're on a mini-vaca in an area where they're experiencing forest fires (thanks asshole arsonist). It's an area that makes Clifton Hill in Niagara Falls, Ontario look rinky dinky. Holy cow.

A couple of years ago, I took the month of February off from Facebook under the premise that the time I wasn't wasting on Facebook could be channeled into other things. I blogged quite a bit, I read a few books, got out a little, and generally tried to avoid looking at anything on there. It wasn't perfect, by far. A fair amount of friends still use Facebook to communicate about social events and general happenings, so I was out of the loop on all of that, thus defeating part of my goal to be in better touch with hanging out with them. Weird how that shit works.
Ultimately, I think I want more conversation. The introvert in me loves social media because it allows me form a complete thought and reply to wha…

[UPDATED VERSION!] The Trouble With The Electoral College

In light of this week's Presidential election, here's an update on why the Electoral College is awful. Watch the original video after this short update:
