There are now less than two months til the wedding day.  Don't be fooled by how relaxing the past couple of weeks have been.  Purely procrastination.  This is just the calm before the storm, before the really big storm, before some unforeseen natural disaster, before a light rain, before a flood, before the locusts.  There's a rainbow in there somewhere, but no one can see it.

But for now, not a whole lot going on, so I decided to investigate what other fancy events history tossed to us on April 14.  Boy, what a day.  In 1927 the first Volvo hit the road.  In 1968 Anthony Michael Hall was born.  It only gets uglier from there.

1865 - BANG.  Lincoln capped while out on the town.  This was a real bummer.  The good news for those planning special events on 4/14 is that Lincoln did not actually kick it until the 15th.  Still, though, right?

The big anniversary this April 14th isn't the assassination of the Great Emancipator.  It's the 100 year mark of when the Titanic smacked into the iceberg.  In a way, our love is a lot like an iceberg.  There's a bit on the top that everyone sees, but there's a whole lot more below the surface that is capable of destroying dreams.  Here again, the good news is that the ship didn't actually sink until the next day.  While these terrible things seem to happen on the 14th, the real bad news never happens until the 15th.  That's why we're waiting until the 16th to board the plane for our Sioux City Honeymoon (good sarsaparilla).  

We've timed our wedding to match up with the rerelease of the movie.  To keep with the theme, the wedding will also be in 3D.  Don't worry about having to wear those pesky little glasses, though.  Our technology is far too advanced for such props.  Fun fact: James Cameron's yachts are named Titanic and T2.  Now if only I could find an avatar to stand in for me at the altar.
