So, the last update here on MyLifeComics was a comic about getting married in two months. And here’s an update to that, some
two three months later. I got married! Look, here’s proof:
Anyways, I never got to announce the true end of MyLifeComics, but yeah…it’s over.Sorry, kids. I’m rebranding my journal comics over at These Sweet Memories. If you were a fan of what I did here, please continue to follow the adventures of my sometimes boring, sometimes not-so-boring life over there. And tell everybody you know; it’s hard starting out fresh all over again. Link, link, link is as follows:
There’s more thingies that could be added here, but…uh, I ran out of paper.
Two months left to live in the bachelorhood (see, that’s funny cause it’s almost sounds like living in the neighborhood), but really all that means to me is two months left until Tara time. It’s going to go fast and slow and crazy wild. Wish us luck!

Seriously, people. I mean, look at this thing and just fall in love:
It’s screaming at me, “FILL ME WITH BOOKS! PUH-LEASE! I’M SO EMPTY, SO LONELY…SO COLD INSIDE!”
Also, registering for gifts is an odd beast. Maybe I’ll say more on that later. The above is our biggest item (size- and dollar-wise) and we fully expect no one to get it, which is fine and all. But booklovers can dream though, right?

I need you to need me
I’d love you to love me
I’m begging you to beg me

For those that don’t know (and that’s probably many considering the whopping two paragraphs on Wikipedia), Pre-Cana is a number of courses that allow a couple to get married in the Catholic church. Sometimes the classes can stretch over three weekends, but Tara and I knocked it out in one big gulp last Saturday. It was…all right. A little awkward at times (see above), and my biggest gripe with the whole deal was that the instructors already assumed you and your future spouse fought and had many deep, problematic issues to work out from the get-go. That’s not the case with Tara and I. I’m peanut butter, she’s chocolate; we complement each other greatly, and nothing can stop us. But then when you tell them this, it’s still something negative because it’s not good to not fight ever…or some silliness like that. To each his own, I guess.
But yeah, we survived eight hours of Pre-Cana and even got to have mass in the chapel we’re getting married in. It was nice. My head didn’t explode there.

To make this post even more exciting, I’m going to list everything we gorged on tonight:
It was a meal fit for kings and queens…and us.

Though the date is being narrowed down. Most likely between now and the end of the world.
History repeats the old conceits
The glib replies, the same defeats
Keep your finger on important issues
With crocodile tears and a pocketful of tissues
