I write better when I smoke. Don’t ask me to reduce it to a science.

The wedding date

Finally. Some time to breathe. And of course, I use the time to blog. 😀 The aunties tell me I’m addicted. And I say, there are worse things I can be addicted to. Chorizo corndogs and mustard, f’rinstance.

Anyway, the wedding is tomorrow – November the 2nd. The first thing I asked Nita when I found out the date of the wedding almost six month ago was why that date? Being the superstitious girl that I am, the date seemed just a tad too inasupicious. And even though Nita’s family has been in the States for more than three decades now, I couldn’t imagine the aunties feeling any different about the date.

I was right, Nita told me. She had to fight tooth and nail for that date, she said. Which only begged the question: what’s so special about the 2nd of November. As it turned out, the answer to that question was also the most obvious one.

*Facepalm!*

Ah well. What’s in a date anyway, right? Nita is ridiculously happy; Simon seems to be walking on air; and all the aunties are walking dynamos. 🙂 Tomorrow’s ceremonies may be low-LOW-key by our wedding standards, but behind the scenes, this has been one FAT Filipino wedding.

    The choice of dates is not obvious to me. Does it have to do with death and rebirth?

  • Re-election 31 December 2008
    Maceda sez Erap consulted Narvasa and others, and they told him that the 1987 Consti prohibits only the INCUMBENT prez from re-election. Former prezzies, by their definition, face no such prohibition. But in the same breath, Maceda also sez that they know an Erap candidacy will be the subject of a disqual case – but […]
  • Escalation 30 December 2008
    I still think the Pangandaman’s shouldn’t have retaliated even if dela Paz threw the first punch. But is anyone really surprised at the escalation in the story-telling on both sides? BTW, I think we can dispense with the age angle nao.
  • Etiquette 29 December 2008
    Unless you’re spoiling for a fight, assume that the writer has some basis for what she writes. Don’t make like a lawyer and ask retarded questions in an attempt to lay the foundation for whatever point you’re trying to make.
