Wedding day

XANDER <====> CARA

This message is intended to be as confidential as something can be in a public livejournal post. Y'all can read it, but I don't want to discuss it unless you're pretty sure it applies to you.


01. We need to talk.

02. Everything you've been saying boils down to a single issue which I cannot address. Neither can anybody else. Seek counsel if you must, but you will have to deal with this yourself.

03. Contrary to your own belief, you've already made up your mind about what you want. What you're looking for is not an answer, but a way to justify the action you're going to take...

04. ...you have not determined what this action is going to be yet.

05. Be prepared to take responsibility for whatever you do. We like to say "it just happened" but these things never "just happen" without at least a little premeditation.

06. No matter what you do here, somebody is going feel used up and patronized. You? Me? Somebody else? Determine what's right and do it, or, if that's too hard, just do what you want to do. There are worse things you could do than make me unhappy.

07. I have stated and restated my wishes. Unless you're going to base your decision on what I want, my wishes are a moot point.

Wedding day

Change of plans

This morning Jim called me and wanted to know if I wanted to help him put together a bookcase or carve pumpkins... I said sure, went over to his house, and ended up doing other stuff. It was pretty entertaining, even if he did have to sit through Waxwork II... Terribly sorry, but I'm rather fond of the film.

Sad as it is, I've been scheduling my weekends around Rocky Horror for some time now, and it really throws a monkeywrench into the works when all of a sudden EVERYBODY wants me to do something on Saturday night.

1. Jess wants me to help her "bury the bodies." This is usually Jess's way of saying "like, dude, let's like, go to a bar where I can like, pick up guys with wall-to-wall muscles on their chests, while you nurse a Coke and damn yourself, 'kay?"

2. Nate wants me to go out in celebration of his younger brother's 21st birthday.

3. John wants me to go to his house and watch bad movies with my sister, possibly her boyfriend, and their friends.

You know what? Screw it. My voice is in too poor condition to actually shout out callbacks tonight, and Jess will probably end up hitting on Nate. I'm hanging out at John's, where I'll probably watch Waxwork II for the third time this weekend.

Uh, anyway, if anybody from the Tiny Fools is reading this prior to tonight's show (and chances are, you won't be), I won't be at the show. I understand that this is unimportant as I'm not on cast, but still, I felt it worth mentioning.
