You Can Dress Them Up...


My Belle, Bro, this blogger, and Hoot at the wedding. Mom must be so proud. We did have the decency to put our middle fingers away until the bride and groom entered the reception hall because naturally the bridal trolley pulled up just as soon as we were set to take the picture. I even bummed a cigarette to hold from my cousin so I wouldn't be the odd woman out.

The cool thing about this wedding was that we had family on the bride's side and the groom's side. Heh. Yes. The groom was my cousin on Mom's side, and the bride was the cousin of my cousin on my Dad's side. Figger that shit out. They're not related, bloodwise at least, whatsoever. And, the wedding was in New Jersey, not West Virginia.

I had a blast. I miss my brother and sisters so much that it's shadowed my joy of being home in Colorado just a teensy bit. 2,000 miles is just so, so, so far. Damn.

15 Leg Humps:

It does suck to be so far away from family. The group photo is quite an original! If that was my family, that pic would definitely be hanging in the hallway!

Zube Girl said...

Chickie- Oh yes. The whole point of it was to get an 8 X 10 made so we could give it to Mom for Christmas. Heh.

That's one good lookin' family!

Phil said...

Hehehe. Now we can tease you about your cousin-marrying-cousin family. :)

So why didn't you tell me Hoot was such a looker? What're the chances of convincing you to give me her number? ;)

Oh Great Zube girl - please empart your married knowledge on mine head.

If my family lives there (400+ miles away) and his family lives here... Do I dump my plans of ever living near my beloved family and stay with him or dump him and take the risk of never finding a goodie again?

Damnit!!!

- So confused

Storm said...

wow, you can really see the family resemblance there.

I'm glad you enjoyed your time there. :O)

On another note, Steve's brother married their cousin, something like five times removed. I find that a bit creepy.

Zube Girl said...

PaintingChef- See, here is the thing about looking almost exactly like your sisters. Since I'm the oldest, looking at them is like looking in a mirror that reflects me eight and ten years ago, respectively. I really noticed just how twenty-ten years old I am.

Thanks for the compliment!

Phil- She is quite the hotty, eh? I'm lucky to have her around whenever I'm going somewhere fancy because she is SUCH a fucking diva, and I'm more of a jeans and t-shirt kind of gal.

So Confused- I'm going to respond to you in an entry. :-) Hang tight, and thank you for calling me Great. I think I love you, you anonymous commenter!

You guys looked beautiful! Mom will love it.

Zube Girl said...

Storm- I've had friends tell me it's like my Mom gave birth to four of the same kid. Years apart, and one happened to be a boy. Us girls like to tell him he looks like us, so that means he's pretty. Poor guy. :-)

Bonanza- I'm thinking Dad will love it, too. Thanks!

Zube Girl said...

Phil- I have to add, too, that if you and Hoot were to get together, who in the hell would kill any spider intruders, huh? It may not be a match made in heaven. :-P

Awesome, I am excited for your post!

Although, for me it is no rush. I recently bought a house with said boyfriend (complete with joint bank account) so it will be a longish sticky process to disengage if that is what I eventually decide to do.
And you are great!

- Still confused.

p.s. to clarify, he won't move from here.

Geeeebus!
I am such a nerd...

I came back to post AGAIN because I didn't want you to have the impression that I thought your eventual post would be all about me, ms. anonymous, and her piddle problems.

So please don't think that.

- Confused and totally nerdy.

Storm said...

lol, I like your anonymous too. My anons always give me advice!

Phil said...

Well Zube, we could always call on you to kill the spiders, right? :)

Cool. That's the first time I've seen the mime version of Bird on a Wire in four-finger harmony.
