Re: Wedding Planning!

Well we won't get wedding photos for a month yet, we just got a HD to ship off to our videographer so we can have a copy of all the raw footage as well, and we still haven't even gotten honeymoon pictures posted to facebook. And Renee's still in the middle of thankyous (I'm not allowed to do them), ...

Re: Things that I hate

Hangovers are so so so much worse when you had a salty dinner, eat lots of salty chips and don't drink water as well. I knew all these things and still didn't forestall problems (I did try to stay up drinking water when I realized I was in for trouble the next day, didn't work out, fell asleep). Yes...

LA fitness is our gym. :) I rather like the treadmills that have an interval setting, a lot easier to switch from walk to run speeds with a single preset button.

Re: Currently Reading / Just Read (Books/stories/whatever)

I agree with you whole-heartedly about romance being the focus of recent novels (often to their detriment) and that most of those romances are poorly executed at that. I've just noticed a trend lately where if there is a female in a lead role, (and a strong female at that) she is usually emotionall...
