Hold Up, Wait a Minute. Put a Little Blog In It

OK, the Oscar blog post cannot remain at the top of this page while I hurtle headlong towards the grave and my dermal tension gives up the ghost at a rate of 33 m/s^2.

Oops! Didn’t I promise an exposé on inflated wedding venue costs last time?

b) the piercing screech of microphone feedback in an empty room?

Went out with my dear 5-year-friend (we've known each other longer, but I'm trying this coinage, intended to mean "old friend whom I love dearly but only get to see every 5 years or so."

We attended a legal-themed Battle of the Bands. 1) This was my first, potentially only, visit to the famed Whisky a Go Go on Sunset Blvd. 2) Sadly, the best-named band -- Privileged Communications -- did not prevail.

We scouted wedding venue. Learned that venue fee is directly proportional to number of chandeliers.

Ultimately, decided that non-eloping is for the non-faint of heart. Get it? I mean we are cheap. It is going to take this Indian guy and this Chinese girl much longer to work up the nerve to put down a venue deposit. ~*Further into unmarital limbo we slide~*

At one of the potential wedding venues (Guess where!), Deepak threw up a V for: 1) Victory, 2) Violet, 3) Virginity (chastely maintained during this protracted courtship/interminable engagement)
