My darling <lj user="poppy_girl"> is right: I rarely talk about myself here.
Moving, engagments, iTunes, politics. That's been about it the past couple of months, if you were trying to follow my life via this blog. Which is very much not the case, as a number of events happened in September alone:
1. Over Labor Day, La and I held our first party, where we combined helping Red and Sven move the various bits and pieces that we'd been holding for them out of our basement. A lot of the We showed up for that, as well as my best friend Yess and her beau Big Red. had bought me a wonderful new gas grill for our anniversary. It got christened in style, and I think everyone had a good time.
2. Both of us went out to Pittsburgh a couple of weekends back for the annual Alumni Band Day. I'm a proud alumnus of the University of Pittsburgh Varsity Marching Band, and had a blast this year as I do every year I go. I'd never taken someone with me who hadn't also been in the band though, so discovered a couple of things:
a) If you're not in the band, there's squat to do at the Friday night practice.
b) If you're not in the band, you're best off bringing a buddy for the Saturday game, as you won't see your spouse/friend/significant other from about two hours before the game begins until just after it ends.
Next year, she's bringing a buddy and skipping practice.
3. I got to meeting my future grandmother-in-law this past weekend. Very, very nice lady.
