Ramblings of a Long Island Girl.

Satirical. Inappropriate. Sometimes crude. Bitchy. Rambling. You know how I do.

Love, actually, is all around us.

Rachel & Will's wedding on Sunday, October 14, was absolutely gorgeous. It was a small ceremony on a hillside in West Park, NY (upstate near Poughkeepsie). Rachel looked utterly beautiful and Will looked pretty darn handsome too :) I loved that it was such a small wedding, because you could really feel the love all around (yeah I think I'll take some wine with this cheese). Her brother said a little something at the alter about the two of them, which had everyone in tears. Then, at the reception, her dad gave one of the sweetest toasts I've ever heard. He first spoke about Rachel, then about Will, then about how great they are for each other. I literally cried for like 15 minutes afterwards because it was so touching.

Oh yeah and I decided that I guess I'll have a wedding after all - maybe - but it's totally going to be a roast of me & my husband. Cause really, the best parts of the wedding are the speeches (who doesn't like people talking about them?), the open bar, and the dancing. So I'm just going to make it a roast with an open bar and then everyone can dance like it's 1988 again afterwards.

Here's Rachel singing Sinatra's "From This Moment On" to Will as a wedding present. She has such a gorgeous voice:

As always, Steph is the hottest girl (non-bride) in the room...

And as always, we are the dancing queens!

With the beautiful bride and an truly inspirational friend :)

Dumbledore's a Cover Boy

I know that I haven't been around here in ages and now I keep getting harrassed to update. I don't think I've really posted since July, and a crapload has been going on. I've got a ton of work to do right now and I'm going to visit Jay in NC tomorrow, BUT I promise to play here more often cause I've accumulated lots of fun stuff recently. I actually wrote a whole post up about the Joe Torre/Yankees crap, but then decided against posting it because it helped me get it out of my system haha. But anyway, I'm gonna do a total cop out for now. At least it's funny...

The people at Best Week Ever are genius:

For the record, I think that J.K. Rowling's announcement was awesome. Yeah, so what, Dumbledore's gay? It doesn't change the story, it doesn't distract from it (I don't think so at least), and I think that when people say, "Oh well, it doesn't matter that he's gay, what's the big deal?", that statement in itself IS the big deal. Time will tell if in the long run, it has an impact on literature or not, or whether or not society can handle a popular, powerful, beloved fictional character being a homosexual. Regardless, I think it's a very positive message she's sending to fans. Let's discuss it, if you are so inclined.

Related: I came across this article the other day, which gave me a chuckle. It's 7 clues that we should have picked up on that showed Dumbledore's sexual preference.

Anyway, shoutout to McSherry because I know she's the only one who'll actually read this :) I'll be baaaaack!
