No Berlin link

This posting has no link to Berlin, Germany or Europe, but I am so amused and disturbed by something I came across on Monday, I have to share...

I was sending an e-card to a friend and discovered that it is now possible to send not only birthday and anniversary greetings, but also marriage proposal e-cards. What!?



This was the card I found most funny and horrifying. Nothing says, "I want to make a life-long commitment to you" like an e-card featuring underwear. What does this lead to, a video conference ceremony?

Happy Wednesday!

Would you ever say "yes" to a person who proposes to you via ecard?

Exactly, no! But whatever floats your boat, I guess! I've tried to think about the circumstances around which an e-card proposal would be appropriate. All I've come up with is war or prison. But even in those situations I feel like the guy would have other options.

Even Corey, the master of all things goofy, wouldn't have proposed that way even if he had found the e-card when the time was right. At least I hope he wouldn't. Hmmm. now I'm starting to picture that as EXACTLY the sort of thing Corey might have done if he had the chance...

The underwear card is very funny but somewhat unromantic. But, I agree with Erin, whatever floats your boat. ;) J.

An e-card proposal leads to an 18-minute quickie ceremony by a justice of the peace . . . wait a minute . . .

But he said "awesome" after each part of the vows and had a California babe waiting for him in the wings... what more could you want from a Cali wedding!?

No seriously, your wedding was marvelous! Who cares how long the ceremony is! The day is all about the couple, and you two are the best!

Yeah, of course you liked the ceremony, Erin -- you were a featured player! ;)

Erin, when you get married are you going to get married at Leland? I think that would be beautiful!

Ha, my mom recently informed me that she does not care who I marry, but for simplicity sake, I will be getting married at the Newtown Presbyterian Church. Though Leland would be gorgeous! She might make an exception for Leland! Check out the latest Jolli Lodge sunset pictures.

Does the Newtown Presby allow dogs? I have never understood how people get married without one of their most loved family members in attendance! That being said, I doubt many temples allow dogs, so I am not sure Priti will be able to come to my wedding. There is a church right on Rittenhouse Square that does allow dogs, so that is a possibility :)

Awww, Leland dressed up for a wedding would be adorable. He could be the ring bearer, but the chance of him stopping halfway down the aisle because he is bored is high.

Alas Katie and I better get moving in the boyfriend department pretty darn quick if we want Leland to be at either of our weddings.

Presbyterians are pretty relaxed, so I bet we could convince the minister that Leland is an important part of the Taylor fam. But we would have to bring him a pillow for the pew so he wouldn't slip around on the wood.

And if Leland is allowed, I think Priti, TJ, Rascal, Reggie and Bogey, all the other bichons we know, would have to be invited too:-)

Erin, as flattered as I am that you would think of Priti during one of the happiest days of your life, I encourage you to reconsider. She is a nut. First off, she will bark at all the other dogs, demand belly rubs from each of your guests, and blitz all over the church! Oh, but it would be sooo cute! :) Perhaps Leland could teach her some "wedding etiquete" in advance of the ceremony.
