|07:47 am - Party People|
Friday we heard from the herd, and its been a blur since. Specifically:
Thursday. lange showed us the joy that is Pro Fitness. We saw Seattle, and then caught a bus to Vancouver. Pretty basic.
Friday. Having no contact, we set off to make the most of it. We went to the aquarium, and satisfied some miscellaneous shopping needs. Then we went and got seriously excellent massages, with reservations for an elite little sushi shop. Missed that, when we finally made contact. Went to the majorly disorganized dinner thing, which had the benefit of serious bonding (and drinking) on the return. I drank more that night than Dave has seen me do so, cumulatively, since he's known me.
Saturday. Which didn't stop me from being up and getting a full run and workout (such as the facilities allow) before 9. No effects of any of it. It was a morning wedding ceremony. And very nicely done, on the UBC campus, with one of Greg's good (ULC-ordained) friends presiding. The actual event was very short and tasteful. Well done.
Debauchery continued throughout the afternoon, except in our room where... well, ok, so I had two girls sleeping with me in bed. Evening was a large dinner followed by more fun, both nights having resulted in keeping the particular bar open at least an hour or two later than they are posted to. Carbombs are pretty good.
Sunday. And still I am up and about to go for a run 7ish, having finally gone to be around 5. And feel great.
More, later. We've had a great time, effjay and karmen had a great wedding and seem to be enjoying themselves, and they have good friends.

Sounds like a lot of fun. I love that part of the continent. Too bad it's so far away from the other good part of the continent.
I'm still hoping to make it out to Pittsburgh one of these days. Do you think it would be better to visit during the summer or during the school year? Perhaps carnival would be a good time to visit.

I'm glad you guys enjoyed yourselves once things finally got rolling.
I apologize for the initial lack of contact -- my cell phone was not functioning properly, and we had rehearsal and family obligations on Thursday evening and Friday afternoon. I think we fared quite well considering planning took place a mere 2300 miles away. ;)
Initial pictures (I think you've been copied) are up at:http://halcyon.nerdc.ufl.edu/gk-wedding/http://www.hawkeyecollege.edu/pjohnson/gkwedding/
Looking forward to seeing you on Monday evening in Pitt.
Thank you guys again for making the trip. It really meant a lot to both Karmen and I.
