Technically speaking,…

Technically speaking, it's probably Sunday, but since I've only slept an hour or so, it doesn't feel like it. Tonight the mosquitoes decided to attack again, full force, so now I'm awake, liberally plastered with soothing unguents, waiting for the Benadryl to kick in so I can go back to my much longed-for bed.

The big event of the day was not my being attacked by mosquitoes, however -- it was Kate and Becca's wedding. I'm not sure if I've mentioned them here before; they're not tremendously close friends, but I like them a lot, and I was thrilled when they invited me to their wedding. It was in Ardenwood Historic Preserve in Fremont, a lovely place (though a bit too sunny, as it turned out). The brides wore very similar white gowns, though slightly different (Kate's had a train, and short sleeves...), and the religious officiary was resplendent in midnight blue robes. A charming wedding, full of unalloyed good feeling, joy, and only a few of the inevitable jokes. Great fun!

Went with Sherman, who I hadn't seen in too long. There are too many people like that -- Adam swung by unexpectedly this evening, and I realized I hadn't seen him in months. Which seems ridiculous, yet practically speaking, there is a limit to my time. I could have more parties, to ensure I got to *see* more of my friends...but that's not the same as actual alone time with them. (I have the vaguest beginnings of a possible story idea fluttering in my head, but I can't talk about it too much, or I'll scare it away. Most stories are shy creatures). Perhaps I should stop being so relentlessly social. Perhaps I should stop making new friends -- but people are so neat! I keep meeting such interesting people (and I still haven't managed to schedule dinner with Jen and Swati), and it would seem a shame not to get to know them a little...

Okay; going to go read for a little, I think. Talk to y'all soon.
