Went for the wedding of a college friend of lightways's. AOKP is a bit of an extended family, so this was like going to the wedding of a cousin I'd never met. Finally got to meet her after the ceremony, though! All in all, it was great with a couple minor incidents - including my camera batteries dying so I could only take 480 shots. MAN, I love the digital camera!
Needless to say, we visited lightways's family as well. While in the neighborhood, she dragged me to a jewelry store she knew and loved, and of course we were looking at rings. When we found the one she had wanted for years, she started hyperventilating. Apparently she was hoping not to find it? So here's the deal - I'm not allowed to buy it. I can't even put it on the payment plan. That would be too permanent - too committing. She won't let me ask her father for permission, much less ask her the Question.
But I know from experience that if you walk away from the perfect [insert item here], it won't be there the next time you look. So I put it on layaway. That gives her six months to get used to the idea and maybe she'll allow me to ask him, if not her.
After the wedding, we went up to Davis to visit with sencollins and his family for a day and a half. Had a great time -- I've really missed our friendship. And I discovered a friendship with his wife that I didn't realize was there. I guess she's matured and stuff since I met her when she was, like, 17 or so. Great person. sencollins did good.
