I realize that I haven't been blogging a lot lately. It isn't that I don't have things to say, it's just that I don't have the mental wherewithal to string words together to form coherent sentences.

I mean, I used "wherewithal" in that sentence. Who says that?

Anyway, suffice to say this: I am tired. I am stressed. I have one month to the wedding, and suddenly everything -- even simple things like calling the hairdresser -- become massive acts of willpower. I want to pretend like it's not going to happen. I want to do things like watch TV and read books and chat online with friends and NOT plan a wedding any more.

Don't get me wrong. I'm totally psyched about getting married still. I'm just totally over this whole planning nonsense. It stopped being fun some time ago and I'm really just done with the whole idea.

Maybe I'll just give up on whatever else needs to happen and just show up on the third and whatever goes, goes.

Who am I kidding? That'll never happen. I don't have the guts. ;)

So anyway, don't think I'm ignoring you. I'm just crazy. And not that good, fun kind of crazy, either. Trust me, if I were writing on here, I would just be whining, and nobody really wants to read that.

Least of all me! =D

So never fear. I'm fine. I'm just not terribly coherent right now. I'm sure bloggage will pick up again post-nuptials -- I'll certainly have plenty to talk about!

it takes tu tu tango

So, in celebration of our impending nuptuals, last night Brandon and I dined at the fabulous Cafe Tu Tu Tango.

You know how you sometimes go to a restaurant and say, "Oh! I could make a meal just of the appetizers!" Well, that's exactly what you do at Tu Tu Tango. All they serve is appetizers. Everything from dips and chips to soups and salads to potstickers, empanadas, stuffed mushrooms, fried calimari, and mini pizzas.

Brandon and I settled on the Spanish antipasto plate, the beef empanadas, and the chicken and shrimp potstickers -- all quite delightful. We thought about ordering a fourth, but decided to go with the raspberry creme bruler instead; it was a bit disappointing. Very soupy and with a grand total of four raspberries, but it did have a good flavor.

Anyway, the restaurant is very fun. It's decorated like an artist's loft with art covering every surface (and almost all of it for sale). They have a huge patio and even some couches for lounging while you munch.

I want to get a big BIG group of people together at this restuarant, get a pitcher of Sangria, and have everybody order something different. I bet a party would just naturally develop.

Dearly beloved...

Exactly one month from today I will be Mrs. Brandon Renner. Til death do us part.
