Yes, folks, it's almost time. The lovely Anniz and I are getting married this weekend.

Sunday afternoon, actually. Sunday afternoon at 1.30 Pacific time, to be specific. For those on the East coast of the US, that's 4.30pm. For those of you in Europe, it'll be 10.30pm.

We're getting married at the Viva Las Vegas Chapel on the Strip in Las Vegas. Yes, Elvis will be performing our wedding.

The nice thing about the VLV Chapel is that they do live webcasting of their weddings, so everyone can and is invited to watch. All you need is RealPlayer and to click this link to get to the page for viewing the wedding.

We've also created this page on my web site to give all the necessary information people will need to view the wedding. For those without RealPlayer, there's also a standard web cam that doesn't have video or audio (so you won't get to hear Elvis sing "Can't Help Falling in Love," "Love Me Tender," and "Viva Las Vegas" to us).

The wedding should be pretty short, less than fifteen minutes long, so I'm glad we're getting a video tape so we can remember it. Of course, we'll have pictures galore, and the webcast will be archived on their site (and ours) for future cyber-viewings.

We're welcoming all to view it and to celebrate with us. As for a Dopefest, we're moving to a new apartment in October and sometime after we've settled in we'll invite all our DC Doper friends over to drink our beer and ogle my CD collection.

Congratulations and best wishes!

A Scottish wedding blessing:

May joy and peace surround you both,
Contentment latch your door,
and happiness be with you now and God bless you evermore.

No, seriously, Montfort, I know we like to go at it here, no matter what sports season it is -- but I honestly think you're a pretty cool cat.

Congrats on the wedding, good luck to both you and Anniz, and have fun in Vegas.

Okay . . . you know how diehard a Braves fan I am. You know this, I know this, and probably half of friggin' MPSIMS knows this.

If the Phillies win and the Braves lose on Sunday I will not be disappointed. In your honor.

Wouldn't want baseball to ruin an otherwise lovely day




Oh, and good luck and everything, too . . .

I know that I'm going to be putting some money on the Eagles/Seahawks game that starts 15 minutes before the wedding. But, I didn't think of betting on the Phillies/Braves the. I wonder if I can get some good odds on the Phils winning the division....

Anyway, thanks everyone!

Montfort, buddy, friend of mine (guy who gave me a ride to a dopefest about a year ago), I love you and all, so I hope you'll understand me when I say this to you:

I can't bear the thought of taking money away from you . . . even if it is due to the Phillies losing the division to the Braves.

I think that we should all participate in this wedding. At the appropriate time, all the guys should be in tuxes and all the women should be wearing foofy dresses with big butt bows and dyed-to-match shoes.
Whaddya say, Dopers?!?
I'm not kidding!!
Really!!

Who let all those crickets in here?!?

Buncha party poopers...

Best of everything to you both, Montfort and Anniz!! May this be the start of a wonderful happily ever after!

You know the scary thing, FCM? I could almost do just that. My sister is getting married 2 weeks from Sunday, so the big foofy dress is ready. It's just up at my mom's!


Congrats and good luck in the rest of your shared lives, Montfort and Anniz! I'll buy a bottle of champagne and toast you at the appropriate time.

And I will not cry. I will not cry. I do not cry at weddings!

Ya know, I've been in enough weddings that I have a nice collection of "Big-Butt-Bow" dresses hanging in the basement. I could outfit at least 5 or 6 of the girls. Count me in!

Big-Butt-Bows!

I'm glad now I came back to read this week. Congratulations, and I wish you all the best. I hope Anniz adjusts to life in the land of the Great Satan in Clouds of Sulfur ( ) perfectly, and that the two of you are happy and healthy. I hope I can get on the webcast to see; I'm certainly going to try.

I posted my good wishes for you in your engagement announcement thread.

That's the last time I post while talking on the phone.

Go look at 'em, I'll wait. . .

Bitchin'! Congrats and good wishes to both of you.

Regardless of who I end up marrying, I want the civil service to be in conducted in Vegas by an Elvis impersonator too. Tell me how everything goes, and I might be considering the Viva Las Vegas Chapel when the big day comes!

If you think I'm gonna be ogling your CD collection, you're sadly, sadly mistaken.

Valkyrie, the Tzeroling and I send you all our best wishes for the wedding. I'll be online at least - hopefully my stanky Presario with its 56k modem will be able to hold out long enough to play the whole show.

Congratulations, you two!

Thanks again everyone.[smile]
And Whammo it would have been cool to meet you.[smile]
It's morning now and still some hours before we leave,
the flight goes at 8 something in the evening,
and I feel a bit stressed about that now,
so scared of flying.
But luckily I have company of Montfort
A hug to everyone,
*Kram*
