T-minus 2 months and counting.

Alin and I are getting married in 2 whole months. Where has the time gone?

How fun and scary to be taking not a step, but a giant leap into adulthood. Pretty amazing if you ask me, especially since I struggle so hard to stay a kid :)

It's a pretty amazing experience. The wedding is proving to be a right of passage. Not the actual event per se, but the path to getting there. I've been fortunate enough that Alin's put most of the planning onto her shoulders, only bringing me in for my opinion and specific tasks. She's wonderful and I need to do more to show her how much I appreciate her.

In any case, even with my reduced role, it's still proven to be quite the project. It's a mix between coordination, budgeting, politics and God knows what else. I appreciate how much she's gone through these past few months and love her more for the patience she's shown. I'm coming to the realization that this day is more of a test than anything else. By the time our special day arrives, we're probably both going to be so happy that it's over :)

Fortunately, we've got a wonderful honeymoon planned to help us forget the heartaches.

I know, that time heals all. Only the good will remain come to mind when thinking of that day.... The bad will fade into silly stories we'll reminisce about with first our parents, then our friends, and some day our children.

Here's to growing up.

What am I doing up at this hour.

This whole Facebook thing is pretty cool. I find that I am spending more time checking out what's going on on Facebook than MySpace. MySpace is just this huge mess. It reminds me of what AOL used to be like in the early days, completely out of control.

Give people an inch and they turn their profile into a giant fucking neon sign of crap and loud annoying music.

I've also been using iLike pretty much non-stop for a few months now. Probably the most compelling capability of it is keeping tabs on what my friends are listening. I've found a few times where some of my friends are listening to stuff that I've never heard of and generally like. It's a pretty neat experience to have that kind of visibility into your friend's tastes in music.

Alin and I are making our way down to LA the week after next. We're going to visit for mother's day, which should, in theory, be nice. We'll see if that's how it pans out. :P

I don't know what else to blab about. I should probably just go to bed.
