In order to perpetuate the image that I am always doing something (so much “something” that I’ve barely had time to write about it), I spent Saturday galavanting across Orlando, Florida for a variety of reasons. First up: a couple of friends of mine got married six months ago and decided to host a wonderful wedding party at the Mennello Museum. As you can see, they are a very shy and conservative couple…
Congrats to Seth & Genevieve! I wish them years of happiness!!!
NOTE the paper mushrooms on the ground around them and in this photo. Seth mentioned something about a world wide thing taking place in the month of May. (Seth – if you read this, send me a link and I’ll post a clarification OR if anyone else knows that it is, reply and let me know!)
EDIT: Seth contacted me with the info about “The Spore Project”.

Now here’s the “It’s A Small World After All” part: I have a lot of friends that I have never met in person because we have become acquainted with one another via the blogosphere and social networking. One such person is Kelly aka “DreadPirateRose” from The Convention Fans Blog. Check this out:
Sadly, I didn’t read this until AFTER the wedding. It’s still a great example of how much smaller the world has become thanks to technology. Friends of friends of friends on the Interwebz. Crazy, man. Crazy.
After that, I attended a dinner meeting about our upcoming trip to Cancun, Mexico for a convention and then found my way to Jellyrolls with Joey Snackpants, Katie McAwesome and some other friends. Heavy drinking and zaniness ensued. Drunk texting is soooooooo 2005 – so now it’s all about Twitter! My best drunk tweet?
We found our way back home late last night – and the Mrs. is still asleep. (Don’t worry, I already called both our moms on her behalf.)
