To Tim

Imagine that. One decade on, he still has the same sweet smile, exuberant curiosity and zest for life over in Birmingham.

Wishes from the other two.

Wednesday Wedding Watch: Week 26

POkay, I skipped last week's watch. Please don't sue me. There wasn't a lot to report that week, and I was lazy. But hoo boy, did pieces suddenly fall into place across the end of Wednesday and across Thursday. Lots of good, good pieces which so nicely, all begin with "P". Perfect.

Pastors - we nervously approached Fergs' pastor, Ps Lee Choo, to speak at our wedding knowing chances were slim that she'll still be available but miraculously, she was. My pastor, Ps Gwen, will officiate us.

Place - BCM has given us the green light to use their chapel and we've secured the date. I know I've appeared cool about this, but I've actually waited for this confirmation very eagerly. But dang, we've not started work on our save the dates.

Planner - We got one, uhuh-uhuh, who volunteered, uhuh-uhuh. Our first meeting was on Monday and across baskets of bottomless tostada chips, we covered so much ground that I'm in awe and shall now refer to her here as The Mighty Planner (TMP). Of course it's a woman. I wouldn't trust a man with this.

Party - With the above in place, we're planning a dinner meet up for TMP, the bridal team and other miscellaneous bondservants to get acquainted with each other and all on the same page. That should happen first weekend of March.

And that's my update. Posting has been light this week but we'll have something up on Friday before the long, long weekend.

Till then, Peace!

Thank google it's Friday

Welcome to a brand new column on TGD! Posted on Fridays (duh), this will be a round-up of interesting links to look at that we've collected over the week. Dive right in!

From Athalia:

Back in 2001, Steve Jobs defined what computing would be like in the next decade, and then he went out and did it. Now the rest of the industry has to play catch-up. Did I ever mention I want a Steve Jobs shrine in my house?

Wedding eye candy: a vintage-styled inspiration shoot. I'm liking the bride's headpiece and the bouquet much much.

Two magnificent lofts. The second one in particular really speaks to me. Incidentally there's a poll on the home page asking "What style will you embrace in 2010?" and the second option - eclectic, layered and whimsical - is so, so what I want right now.

I don’t usually dig poetry, but this one is a really good read. Go on, read it!

From Fergus:

We all know what it's like to be single. But do you know what it's like to be a single New Yorker Orthodox Jew?

Adidas is the biggest giant in football. However, I'm convinced that they've sacked all their designers and replaced them with a bunch of clueless dogs.

Our wedding colourboards and inspiration boards

Good morning friends!

Okay, our colourboards are finally done! We've spent quite a while fixating on them, tediously swapping colours around, throwing knives at each other and eventually settling on the final three. Colourboards 1 and 2 are quite similar - this is not a coincidence. Our main idea was always to do something within this family of colours. Colourboard 3 is more of a wildcard - like flukes and unplanned babies, this one kinda ... just happened.

So here we are, appealing to your good eye and putting it all up, together with a poll at the end to let you help us decide on the colour theme for our wedding! Do share with us your comments as well.
