Keeping the Faith
Something to Talk About (how I managed to miss a mega-motion picture involving horses all these years, I have no idea)
The Wedding Planner (I scheduled my afternoon nap through most of this)
The nadir of my day was The Wedding Date, a incredibly bad, incredibly unrealistic movie involving Deborah Messing's character taking a male escort to some wedding in London. Nevertheless I found it somewhat engrossing, so when my sister called at 9:38 PM, I didn't answer my phone.
After her one phone call, I get a text message saying my sister had sent me a picture text message. I can't see photo text messages on my baby computer phone (its one downfall) so I figure I'll look at it later.
A few minutes ago I got online and was like "Oh, maybe I'll look at that picture Grace sent me" thinking it was a picture of the New England countryside covered in snow or something (as she is often wont to do).
Well imagine my surprise when this is what pops up on the screen:
So I immediately call my sister and say "I assume by this PHOTO TEXT MESSAGE that you are engaged?!" and she barely has a chance to say "Yes" before I launch in with "Maybe this kind of thing warrants more than ONE PHONE CALL THAT I DON'T ANSWER before you TEXT MESSAGE me?!" Grace has the gonads to say "Didn't I call you twice?"
No, Gossip Girl, you did not.
"Well what were you doing that was so important that you didn't answer?"
"Grace, I was watching The Wedding Date."
"Oh, that's sad."
Yes, Gossip Girl, it is.
Nevertheless, I am happy to welcome another Grace & Arthur pairing to the family (believe it or not, those were my dad's parents' names). Now it seems the only logical thing to do is to proceed with the following (in this order):
1) Start drinking again.
2) Immediately cease all TBS movie-watching.
3) Peruse classifieds for my "wedding date."
