Went to the Root wedding today with smokepaw and hooked up with turbinerocks and his S/O Sarah (who was a mega hot best man) and we formed the "internet clique" table that must be had at /every/ wedding where we proceeded to inform the rest of the guests what Sarah's message to Brian and Jenna on their "OMG MARRIED" car of "Brian and Jenna = OTP" meant. Talk about feeling like a genius for a brief shining moment.
So yeah Root totally went all out with the chocolate fountain and it became a source of great amusement. Not unlike a deep fryer, it demanded random objects to be dipped into it. Sarah offered me a dollar to chocolate coat my share of wedding cake in the cascading curtain of deliciousness. Brian and Jenna's chocolate wedding cake was baptized in Belgian dark chocolate and I got a crisp dollar bill tucked gingerly into my cleavage by a chick wearing a tux. I'd say that's a win all around.
Then we decided to up the ante and I got some Martinelli's sparkling cider, took a spoon, dipped the spoon in the chocolate fountain (much to the horror of the caterers), and stirred my cider with said spoon. I must have totally blanked on middleschool science because the hot chocolate solidified in the cold cider and created a chocolate ladel which I was able to scoop chocolate turds and slightly flavored cider into my mouth with. This combination tasted very much like halloween. I was pleased.
But since Mormon weddings don't have any booze to be found *gasp* and it was St. Patricks day *DOUBLE GASP!* smokepaw and I headed to Santa Cruz for St Patty's Day festivities. After one beer and not a whole lot of jigging later, smokepaw out Irished me with his Mick Firefighterness and I've determined I'm better at being German with my kneeslapping love of sausages and sauerkraut vs. corned beef and cabbage *blorf!* Ah well, I guess I can wait until next Oktober. A compromise was made and we had Mexican food for dinner. Beer belongs to fried food, it just has to be.
So, Brian and Jenna, may you have a wonderful life together. Thank you for inviting me to your wedding. You get this icon cuz thats probably what you're doing right this minute. OHHHH SNAP!
