OK, now Kay and I will start blogging about the really cool wedding gifts we got. The folks who got us things on the honeymoon registry will have to wait until July when we actually TAKE the honeymoon for their blog posts, but my brother was one of the people who broke free from the registry and got us a really cool gift.
In their card, it said they’d gotten us a picnic basket (and yes, the first thing that went through my head was “Hey, Boo-Boo! It’s a pic-i-nic basket!”) but I had no idea how spiffy it was until I got to work and found it sitting on my desk (I also misread the card and thought that it had been ordered, but I’d have to pick it up at BB&B).
I think the thing that impressed Kay and I the most was not the plates, mugs and cutlery that this comes with, nor was it the large insulated interior to keep food and drinks at the perfect temperature and safely stored. We both agree that the most impressive thing was the fancy pants. And the whalebone skirt and parasol. And the butler who comes with it to hold the parasol. The butler is stored in a little compartment behind the plates, and he grows when you place him in water.
We’re going to put this present to good use this summer, once I’ve trimmed off a few pounds and can fit in the fancy pants that came with it. Of course, I can imagine that hauling this to the top of one of the mountains surrounding Ramapo Lake might burn off a bunch of calories on it’s own, so maybe we’ll use it without the fancy pants…
Thanks, Kevin, Terry, Heather, Jennifer and Sammy!
Kay and I are going to be heading out on our honeymoon on July 17, 2010. Yes, that’s three months after our wedding… but it’s five years to the day after I first asked Kay out in that dressing room trailer next to the stage in Clifton Commons during the intermission of Guys and Dolls.
Kay agrees that it’s the perfect date.
Let’s talk about the big white elephant in the room: where the H#%% is the other wedding registry?
Ok, you may have noticed that the Target wedding registry says it’s not the primary registry. Packy and I are setting up a honeymoon registry—since Packy’s been living on his own for the past 20 years, our apartment is pretty well stocked with flatware, dishes, pots, pans and other useful household items (he even has his own silver flatware!)—what we really need is help having a nice honeymoon…
But both of us have been so busy stage managing Judgment at Nuremberg for the past few months that neither of us have had time to set up a honeymoon registry. However, we just struck the set this afternoon, so I’ll be setting one up as soon as possible.
