Meaningless but non-trivial symbols--

Whines and I are engaged :) In GURPS terms this is meaningless, because we're talking about tying the knot a ceremony in August two years from now (2010, wow, can you believe it? Where's my silver jumpsuit and jetpack?), and your game master won't give you any character points for something that far out. But...we just bought a house, and I don't want to go too far into debt on a wacky ceremony and plane trip to Canada right at this stage, so this'll let us bank a little. And in legal terms, it's utterly meaningless, as Texas doesn't recognize any marriage between two guys.

But I need symbols :) And I'd like to say "my husband," thanks, legitimacy is a good thing.

My perfect wedding is still renting a movie theater--the Drafthouse, for preference, having wedding scenes from all our favorite movies played on the big screen (maybe doing the vows from "Corpse Bride," or is that too silly? Do we really care? This is an illegal back-alley gay wedding, after all) and requiring EVERYONE in the audience to wear a costume of some sort, even if it's just a Mardi Gras mask. Then running up to Canada for a week of sightseeing in Toronto, and a license of some sort.

*laughs* One of my friends did a potluck wedding reception at her wedding :) That doesn't seem like the worst idea in the world.

Edit: Oooh! Or we can rent out Kim Phung for the late afternoon and have a Vietnamese Restauraunt reception :) Serving 50 people at a Vietnamese restaurant shouldn't be more than about $340 :)

Congrats! I have to say I personally loved the Niagara Falls area when I went over there a couple years ago (I much preferred it to Toronto itself) so if you're heading all the way up here, you may want to swing by that area. Or not. Depends on what floats your boat ;)
I'm sending you Canadian-legal-system vibes over the internet....

Heh. We'll see, it may come down to "where in Canada do we have friends?" But I've heard nice things about Toronto...

Weeeee!~ I'll bring the beer! No, seriously, this is awesome guys, congratulations. =) As far as symbols go, syyyyyyyyyyymbolism is important, as the great movie V for Vendetta has taught us. Err, but that's not such a happy movie. o_o

If you two decide to do some sort of fancy ceremony, that would be totally excellent, but as far as dresses go, hmm... I think you both should wear a bad ass Tuxedo. I swear, they're a blast to wear, I feel like dancing the robot every time I wear one, and the last two times I did... I did!

Well, to be corny because it's fun and because it's corny, congrats guys, I'm happy for you both. Internet hugs IRL and I'm sending RL hugs in the mail, should be there by March 15th, expect a large fox-shape package. o_o

Oooh, hope it's not living, our post office shoves things into little cramped metal boxes! I'd be disturbed if one of them was sweeking :)

Tuxedo, or kilt? Challenging decision. Maybe 70's-style powder-blue tux :) I kind of want the deep red one from "Beetlejuice," tho.

If you're going with a meaningless ceremony, it should be a fun one :)

Congrats!
I can't imagine how it must be living in Texas.

I'm from liberal, gay-friendly massachusetts, so everything about texas seems so alien and backwards.

Well, we do live in Austin, not Texas :) It helps! Austin's laid-back and liberal, but it is kind of lonely, all alone in the south :)

See, I'm thinking powder-blue 70's tux might be the way to go on this, I wear the leather kilt pretty often :)

All my friends are getting married... Seriously, I've attended two weddings already, and there's two more coming up in the next monthish...

Well, we're talking two years out, so maybe you'll find some nice platonic boy to settle down with before we've managed to get ourselves down to Canada :)

Or girl...I'm not picky. :D

I'll keep an eye out! Out of curiosity, is it significantly easier to find girls that are interested in a purely platonic long-term relationship?

I have no clue. I'm not really actively looking, I'm just going along and if something happens, cool. I don't even know how one would approach someone about the possibility. Hooray for no dating experience...ever. :D
