So now that it's legal, after fifteen years together, Monkey & I have decided it's finally time to get married, and have started planning a wedding. We're thinking around a year from now, plus or minus a couple months.

I mean, we've actually been planning to do it for a long time, but now it's moving from "someday" to "okay, so next year?" And now that we've mentioned it publicly, I guess we're kinda committed!

So far, we've just been collecting ideas and advice and have started compiling a guest list. (Which is slightly daunting in length. We know a LOT of people, it turns out.)

So yeah, if you've had a wedding and have thoughts or advice, we're all ears!

Not a lot else going on. Went to the first pool party of the summer last Sunday. I brought quiche, because it's good brunch food. I made two, and they turned out well. I believe the keys are (1) lots of half-and-half and (2) make it the night before, so it has time to set up well.

Oh, and also, a while back Joe Z pointed me at the call for applications for members of the city's new Inclusivity Board and said "hey, you should apply for this! We need smart people like you involved with stuff like this." So I did, and I was accepted, and last night was the first meeting. I think, despite being a large committee, that it'll be good; it seems like a good collection of interesting people. I am kinda the odd man out in terms of being the only one who's not in or from a social / people-focused position, so my analytic techie brain may be the special thing that I bring to the table. We'll see where it goes!
