Back to life


I keep realizing I haven't posted in a really long time and then I immediately do nothing about it. Yeah, I've been busy with work and wedding stuff, but figured I should post something. The marriage went great. Alice was beautiful and said yes (accidentally said it twice during the ceremony :) ), and the weather stayed dry (albeit cold and windy) for the pictures. We had a great honeymoon in Kauai, and - I know this is a shocker - really didn't want to come back to work, though we did a week ago. Kauai happens to have the wettest spot on earth, but relative to that, the weather was great; we took the top off the convertible every day. Before going to Kauai, I was told that if you ever do a helicopter ride, this was the place to do it. So, despite my normally frugal self, we did the ride and even got front seats. It was spectacular. The scenery is both diverse and incredible. For instance, did you know that the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific" is there in its arid red-rock glory, right next to the rainiest spot on earth? It starts about two valleys over from the lush tropical scenery you saw in Jurassic Park. On a boat, we saw humpback whales and dolphins jumping, turtles and more. Our room was incredible as well and about the only dim spot was that the ocean took my brand new wedding band off my finger. Unfortunately as well, it was gold and thus expensive. Oh well. We still had a great time and would definitely go back to Kauai some day.Other than that, we had our reception this past Saturday, which went better than anticipated, with lots of people. Overall, both "the marriage" and "marriage" were/are great.
