Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Thank you for your kind words and encouragement, Sven.

Yes, I want to do the wedding because it's an opportunity to kind of review your life... and for me, it will be quite a pallette of people and cultures, and I'm very curious what will happen when I bring them all together! I think it will be similar for Miguel as well. We will need lots of interpreting, but that will hopefully be part of the fun. I really look forward to it.

As far as the separate party from the ceremony, we'll just have to see how awful it will get with the papers. Maybe somewhere in the process we'll just throw in the towel and run to the closest city hall in London, just to get it over with.

Yes, it's a great thing to know that we can always get same-day walk-in service in London ;-)

Depending on how you think about it, there's always the possibility of separating the legal element from the personal/social element of the wedding. You could do the legal bit in the registry office and do a solemn ceremony to your taste, religious or not, with friends and family.

The problem is that I am not big on ceremony.

You're curious, I'm terrified.

Where's your sense of adventure?

Socially I have none.

Well, strap on your pith hat and damn well grow a temporary one ... you can borrow mine, though I warn you it's pretty weak. Maybe Sven could lend you his, though he seems to be using it all the time.

Maybe I should smoke some pot on the morning of the wedding.

I said "sense of adventure", not "death wish".

Absolutely - it's a very good way to deal with reality - everything seems sooo fine ;-)

You can't be me, I'm taken
