Wedding and other tidbits

iamxander1986 and I are getting married in roughly six months. Jesus, where did that time go? I'm currently prowling the Interwebs for affordable, classy, not diamond wedding bands. He is a fan of Tungsten carbide because they are durable. My engagement ring is white gold, I'm attempting to find a decent compromise,and he tells me to find something inexpensive and we'll get better rings later on. I'd like to not have to replace my wedding band, this means a lot to me. I'm planning to purchase our wedding bands with my tax return, and if I'm lucky, grab a new laptop. I love my Thinkpad, but it is a little tired at this point. The internal wireless is screwed and the "F" key sticks a bit.

Since the return to Milwaukee, a lot of my old friendships have been rebuilt. Jay is sitting at the other end of the table building a Shadowrun campaign, we see Jay George and Mario pretty regularly. I talk to Macca all the time on Twitter and call her a couple of times a week, we've gone out to see her once, and I'm hoping to make it more often.

Tali is doing pretty well, she's growing up so fast. It seems like just yesterday she came home from the hospital, now she is a year old, walking and can say a few words. Tomorrow she'll be asking to borrow the car. It's so strange. She needs to be a baby for a little while longer.

iamxander1986 is going back to school, he started at MATC last week, and is enjoying it so far. I'm very proud of him, he's looking to get his RN. Every time I pick up one o his textbooks or we talk about anatomy, he asks "Why aren't you going into my profession?" I don't understand why he does this. I am fascinated by the human body and what it can do, but I have no interest in nursing or doctoring.

With the help of both Macca and Logo, I have become hopelessly addicted to RuPaul's Drag Race. Think America's Next Top Model with a dash of Project Runway and a whole lot of fairy dust. Henry Rollins guest judged an episode during season two, and RuPaul made him blush, which isn't really that hard considering his whole Samurai boy scout thing. I adore RuPaul so much.

Work is lovely. I really enjoy being there, Sandy is a fantastic boss and I have a great dynamic with Barry and some of our regular costumers.

Sometimes I miss some of the people I know in Madison. I haven't been as close with wattshumphrey since the breakup and both moves, I hope he's ok. I really miss Kerrigan and The Boys, but I'm really glad I don't live with Alyssa and Shaun anymore, they started to drive us nuts.

I think I'm actually going to make a late New Year's resolution. I am going to try to update LJ more often, I miss being able to sit and do this. Thinking, writing, getting things off my chest. I live in a place where this is possible, but I mostly get online in the mornings before work. Here's to the start of a brand new year. Time to grab 2011 by the balls.
