Lots of Random Thoughts From A Wedding

Today I went to a cousin's wedding. I wanted to go badly because she is the closest person I know that is going to get married anytime soon and one of the few people that would think of inviting me. So today's entry is a little on the corny side, but I'll refrain from being a complete idiot as best I can.

First, I realize how much I want to be married someday. That should go without saying, really, but I saw and felt things today that I haven't felt in a long time. It was like happiness, but different. The ceremony was beautiful.

Speaking of which, I also thought about what I wanted in my dream wedding and realized I need to think more about it. The whole "theme" idea is ok, but there needs to be more to it. I originally was going to hire a monkey, but I later realized that it would be expensive, messy, and slightly immature. So then I decided that I want to go with a geek theme. Have the ceremony done by robots, have everyone dance to Safety Dance and Mr. Roboto, and have a cake that was decorated with 1's and 0's. Now I see that maybe I should incorporate more of a "being together as one for the rest of our lives" motif. Nuts.

Perhaps a robot could still be possible....

I had a blast talking with some people from Nigeria today. I talked with a man who came from Nigeria to live in America. His story was fascinating and nice to listen to. It reminds me of the original "American Dream" that our country used to be thought for. I never have personally known anyone from Nigeria, but he was great company and acted more polite than most people I see on a daily basis. It also made me realize something that I take for granted, and that is living in a modern free country like this is a privilege.

Finally, last short thought.

Today I realized something else, that its possible for me to be nervous. Now I know this sounds weird, coming from a guy who wasn't even a part of the ceremony, but I saw someone there today that made me feel a way I haven't in quite a while, and it felt nice. Very nice.

Anyways, I have a jones for making an audio blog. I guess we'll see.
