sir, permission to kiss the bride, sir!

Uncle Sam is just a big old romantic softie at heart:

When a single person is assigned to a "long" overseas tour, the assignment length is generally 24 months (the unaccompanied tour length). For an accompanied married person, the tour length is usually 36 months. If a single person goes overseas on such a tour, then gets married during the tour, he/she can apply to move his dependents overseas, if they agree to extend his tour-length to the accompanied tour length.


Aaaawww...

"so, uh, you're not going to be wearing plastic penises or anything like that are you?"
"oh god no."
"great."
"our tradition is a condom veil."
"a...i'm afraid to ask."
"it's a veil with condoms pinned all over it."
"of course."


4 hours after my plane lands in St. Loo, my sister's bachelourette party begins. i'll be pub crawling with a gang of grrrls seven years or more younger than myself. twink gave me permission to invite my friend miss mo, which makes it feel even more like we're back in high school.

after the seven hours of drinking, there will be a stripper. i'm (way more than) a little weirded about the whole stripper thing. the whole watching-a-stripper-with-my-little-sister thing. plus the watching-a-person-i-don't-intend-to-have-sex-with-getting-naked thing. not to mention the what-do-i-do-with-my-facial-expression-as-this-is-happening thing.

apparently i have some nudity issues. or some stripper issues. or something. sheesh.

ah well. maybe i'll just volunteer to take photos.

And L'Industrie Bridal is still freaking me out:

If we get past my first question, which is "why have anything on a cake you can't eat?" I think we can still come together in a place where
these don't make any bloody sense.

(Now if one of the brides was pregnant, that would amuse me...)
