It’s Raining, It’s Pouring, But There Will Be No Showering

I thought I’d change it up from all the baby posts and write a wedding post since Kiefer and I are getting married in less than 2 weeks.

Kiefer: A friend wants to know if anyone is throwing us a shower.

Thoughtsy: No. Because I don’t want a bridal shower.

Kiefer: Why not?

Thoughtsy:  Why not? Dear God, man, what did you say? Please tell me you didn’t give someone permission to throw us a shower. If you did, YOU can play all the stupid games and open all the presents while everyone stares at you and wear all the bows and ribbons on your head.

I’ll just sit back and eat cake. That’s the only good part about showers.

When would we even have time for a shower? We just moved. We just got back from Greece. Our wedding is in less than a month.

Plus showers are just an excuse to get extra gifts. And we didn’t even register for anything because we already combined two households and we’d rather have money or gift cards for new home improvements.

And I’m totally having a baby shower…minus the games. I feel bad getting gifts at a bridal shower, getting wedding gifts, and then getting baby gifts in a 6-month span. It seems greedy.

Kiefer: You’re making my head hurt.

Thoughtsy: Then I think I’ve made my point.

A friend ended up throwing us a small weddding shower this weekend. It was nice. And most importantly, there were no games.

Can You Really Die of Boredom?

Can you really be bored to death?

Yes. Yes, you can.

How do I know? Because I’m pretty sure I’m dying of boredom right now. Seriously. Feel my forehead. Does it feel warm to you?

Kiefer’s in Africa, and there’s nobody around for me to play with. ::pouting::

For your entertainment, I’ve compiled a list of things that are no fun to do by yourself:

  • Play Twister.
  • Play Hide and Seek.
  • Watch scary movies. (Maybe this is just me.)
  • Shovel snow.
  • Have a food fight. (Pie-facing yourself just isn’t funny.)
