What goes on in Vegas...

"And if you care to find me, look to the Western sky. As someone told me lately, everyone deserves a chance to fly! And if I'm flying solo, at least I'm flying free..." -Wicked

Well, folks, the festivities for the Smith wedding have begun. We're heading over to Mick's house (my godfather) for a brunch type thing (it's only 9:35 here), and later tonight is the bridal shower/bachelorette party. Obviously, I'm not going to the latter, nor do I want to. A bridal shower is just fine for me.

A lot of the people here within our circle of friends amaze me. Some of the ones I'm not as close to are definite "don'ts" when it comes to, "What kind of adult do I want to be?" So many of them are irresponsible and act as though they're still 21 when they're 35. GROW UP! It's a little sad when you're more mature than the person who can drink and vote, etc.

Want to make you feel beautiful...

You Know You're Addicted to LiveJournal When...

If you can't access the site, you have a minor freak out - and a major case of hitting reload.

You found yourself composing journal entries during dates, movies, even sex!

When you're out, you suddenly think of a witty reply to a comment somebody made to you... several days ago.

You actually call it LJ and not Livejournal. Check.

You've downloaded some sort of LJ program which has only the purpose of making entries easier to write without going on the site manually.

You consider it a great offense if someone deletes you off their friend's list.

The first thing you do every day when you go online is check your friends journals - even before checking your email.

You actually paid money for a few extra pictures with a full account when you could actually just alternate pics when you want to for your screen icons.

When your friends ask what's new, you get mad at them because you already wrote it in your LJ and they didn't check it yet.

You have put more time into LJ than all your assignments for the semester.

You have more friends on LJ than in real life.

You've met at laest 50% of your LJ friends.

You can't seem to call your friends by their real names - only LJ names will do.

You've fallen in love with someone you met on LJ.

You have posted about a party or get together on your LJ... and random strangers showed up.

You are guilty of traveling more than an hour to meet someone with LiveJournal. (Extra points for traveling five hours or more)

You've written a protected entry about one of your LiveJournal friends. (Extra points if they eventually found out about it)

You have written posts to notify people you're going to sleep.

You talk about your LJ friends to your real life friends all the time... like they're a part of your group.

You've created a LJ community, and people actually post in it.

You've been recognized in real live by a fellow LJ'er.

You have friended someone because of their LiveJournal icon.

You have "pity friends" on your list, who you would defriend if you could.

You've pimped one of your friends on journal, trying to get people to friend him / her.

Instead of doing research, you post difficult questions on your LiveJournal.

Your pets all have their own LiveJournals.

You know, right now, how many people have friended you (without peeking).

You've stopped being friends with someone in real life because of something they've said on LJ.

You're guilty of posting sexy or nude pictures to get more people to friend you.

You have consoled yourself after a horrible day thinking "At least this will make a great LJ post"

You're jealous of people who have more friends and / or comments than you.

You have written a really great, solid post - only to be disappointed by the lack of good comments.

You're guilty of commenting excessively to get more traffic to your journal.

You've deleted a post a few minutes (or hours) after you've written it, because it seemed lame in retro spect.

You give shout outs to all your LJ friends on their birthdays.

You have an additional, secret journal that hardly anyone knows about.

You've broken up with someone - or ended a friendship - soley via LiveJournal.

You have gotten mean anonymous comments (bonus points for figuring out who it was via their IP)

You've been reported (or reported someone) to LJ Abuse.

You've been featured on LJ Drama.

You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends who are LJ addicts.

That cracked me up. I am such an lj addict...I knew it before I read that. :-p

Brunch at Mick and Taylor's was way too fun. The Gang (Mason, Kerry, Adam, Michel, my mom, me, Taylor, Mick, Valerie, Maggie, the list goes on) was all there, and it was fabulous. A lot of these people are more "family" to me than my biological family is. I love them all so much. We stood around in the kitchen with my mom filming the whole thing, everyone telling funny/dirty stories about Adam, including his fiancee. The most surprising thing was when Mick and Taylor were affectionate with each other. In ALL the years I've known them, I haven't seen so much as hand-holding between them, and they've been together for ten years. I'm not sure if that's because they're sensitive to the whole "alternative lifestyle" bias, or because they're just not very PDA, or what. I know they love each other A LOT, though. So for those (straight boys...I don't hear it out of girls) who have the idea that gay couples are always all over each other (and all over you-p.s. they have too much TASTE to be interested in people who say that crap), this is proof that you're wrong.

They kissed and all of us were like, "Wait, wait, WAIT! We have to see that again!" My mom got it on camera. It was too cute. I'd like to live in a world where people can be in love and open about it if they choose to without people being mean about it.

There's something about weddings that makes the people who are in love grow even closer together. It'll be great when it's my turn. I want to stand in a kitchen surrounded by friends who are like family and have people tell embarassing stories...about my fiancee. ;)
