Dispatches from Lee and Lisa's wedding! Remember that Tom Hanks movie Bachelor Party? Me neither, but I bet the Wikipedia entry for "bachelor party" is a good read. I'll be right back.
Bachelor parties in the US often entail the mass consumption of alcohol, the hiring of a stripper or prostitute, and general rowdiness toward which the bride might not have a positive reaction.
The task of organizing a bachelor party is often traditionally assigned to a male sibling of the bachelor or to the best man. Otherwise, any (close and/or reputedly party-minded) male friend will organize it.
Me and my friends (or "boys") are nothing if not reputedly party minded, so naturally we went to a Jazz game. Remember the Jazz' old slogan? "Real Fans! Real Players! General Rowdiness!"
I think we were there the same night as the Reese's annual outing.
I hired a bunch of strippers but forgot to buy them tickets. So that was a waste.
Saturday was the wedding luncheon in the opulent and elegant Joseph Smith Memorial Building.
Lee led the crowd in a round of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame."
Unfortunately all the attention was just too much for him and he went brain dead.
(actually a baby spat forth upon his necktie. damian saved the day by commandeering a new one).
All these people gathered for a photo but there was no photographer there. It really made me uncomfortable.
Here's the happy couple.
Huh. Looks like there are two happy couples in this picture.
On to the reception. At the luncheon Lee introduced me as the "third member of the relationship."
Priya entertained the ladies with her jokes and stories.
But when I tried to talk to her she just looked at me like I was an idiot. She's smart that way.
I hung out with my little buddy Cash though. Haven't seen him in a while. He still likes trucks.
I think having a photo booth at a wedding is a great idea.
So yeah. Good couple of days celebrating the wedding. Congratulations, Lee and Lisa!
Also, whose eye is this?
Oh I almost forgot! The movie Taken starring Liam Neeson is a great movie. I mean, it's a pretty crappy movie, but I enjoyed it non-ironically. Suffer no delusions: if you steal Liam Neeson's daughter, he will punch you in the throat.
