- In book-related news, I received another (!!) request for a full since writing Sunday's post. This was also a result of the queries I sent last week. So apparently that was a really good decision.
- In personal-related news, I haven't posted a wedding related update in a while. That's not for any particular reason. I'm still engaged, things are still good with Matt. Mostly it's due to a few factors: After the initial bout of excitement, I kinda got grossed out with all things wedding related. This includes everything from highly produced wedding magazines to the cutesy quirky wedding blogs. Everything started to look the same. I got bored. Also, while I like the idea of bringing together our widely scattered network of friends and family, I absolutely hate being the center of attention. See I bolded it to show you how much I despise this prospect. I like the idea of planning an event, designing invitations, and putting to use the incredible talents of our friends (exhibit A: that dessert table above, which some friends put together for a recent wedding), but not if it means that all eyes will be on my for 4 - 8 hours. Of course a smaller wedding is also an option, but then important choices about who is and is not invited would have to be made. So instead of making any meaningful decisions about the wedding, I have chosen not to think about it at all. Because that's how adults deal with important life events, right?
