I'm going to Ireland for a friend's wedding on Thursday! :D I'll be there for for a week and a bit - anyone know some good places to go around central Ireland?

My wife and I went out to dinner tonight at the restaurant where we got engaged twenty years ago and booked the same table we had that night.

Putting this here rather than anxiety/stress because while I'm full of that, it's the good productive kind. Lots of emails today.

Couple last minute invites too. Had a dress fitting and there's a bit more needed done than expected but not a scary amount.
I've been pushing my waking hour forward bit by bit to prepare for the 4:30am start which is going to be the hardest part of the day. I'm working every day to and including Saturday which helps push me.

As well as work, I had my fitting today. Have a therapy appointment Wednesday. Lunch with man of honour and a vet appointment on Thursday. Dentist on Friday. Only little appointments but they add to the busy feeling.

Can't wait till the day properly starts. Having the schedule lined up, while being prepared for the day to do its own thing, helps settle me a lot. I can shut down that critical voice in my head by looking at that timetable pretty effectively.

While getting my dress fitting the person said, "I think that boob needs to be higher." I responded, "No, the other one is just bigger."

It's already October 9 for our European and Australian members.

October 9 ten years ago is when I registered my account.

I have been here ten years. It is a strange thought.

This place has stretched my mind and introduced me to some remarkable people, including one who is the kind you don't meet just every lifetime.

You've been here longer than I have! My 10 year anniversary is coming up in January. I'm not around much these days, but I pop in from time to time.

I just checked, and I have been on here a little over eleven years.

Is it Akima, and is that a Mulan joke?

I assumed he meant ZoeB (sorry Akima!); but both are worthy candidates.

That's what I thought as well, but then I saw that (possible) joke.

The 20th anniversary party went off OK. The centerpiece was my wife and I singing a duet of "Save the Best for Last". I took singing lessons starting earlier this year so I'd be able to do that.  My singing tutor came to the party. Several people there complimented him on his work.

I'm sick. It's frying my mind. Earlier today I started a search for a cap I'd been wearing to combat the chills. (Not just any chills. I'm wearing a lopapeysa indoors and am not really comfortable).

The eventual outcome of the search was that I was still wearing the cap.
