This weekend I am flying to Lincoln for a visit and while there Charity and I will be working on some wedding preparations. This entails doing things I have never actually considered doing before such as selecting caterers, being premaritally counseled, and attempting to decide on tux styles. I find the last one amusing; I wonder if I will ever wear a tux outside of a wedding context.

As these details might overwhelm my meager mental capacities for creative blogging I am stealing an entry idea from the Grand girls. For those shy readers who feel like intimidated by commenting, here is your chance to start.

Who are you out there? Where are you from? Are you currently reading this to procrastinate?

I am a bit curious who has been reading along the way, but if you would like to keep the mystery in your visits that’s no problem.

(side thought) I am also curious what perceptions I give off via the blog. When people meet me at the wedding how accurate will their conceptions of me from their reading here?

    So totally procrastinating right now.
    Yeah, I think you’re nice. I have come to the conclusion that you can marry my very cool friend. I know you’re relieved to have my approval.
    Have fun with the tux selection. Nothing pastel is a good rule when dealing with tuxes. šŸ™‚

    Tux – NO pastels
    And, Andy, I know that you’re cool in real life, but you’ve also managed to come up with some great written thoughts too. Keeps me entertained between tasks anyway.

  6. yo andy! congrats again on getting engaged! and ian told me about your blog and i had to read it. very interesting- and yes, you’d never guess that my brother would be an avid reader. by the way- i say go with a yellow tux and a pink top hat…but that’s just because i’ve been reading political science material non stop for the last few days and i feel i need to get back at TA’s and teachers.. ha ha!

    I am procrastinating as well.
    If nothing else, it seems Andy has provided us all with a valuable way to avoid whatever it is we really do for a living.

    Procrastinating? Nah, this is what I do now–surf the internet all day šŸ˜‰

  9. I think it’s funny that a majority of your readers who’ve identified themselves seem to be your fiancee’s friends. I guess they are checking you out to see if you are a worthy guy. šŸ™‚

    And no, I’m not procrastinating. Blog-reading is a quality activity, especially when it’s my brother’s blog!


    January 27, 2005 at 4:11 pm

  10. LOL, Elizabeth. That’s precisely why I didn’t sign in earlier, but since you’ve exposed me… Here I am. I began reading your blog, Andy, since June or so. I knew you were coming to Lincoln and that you had great potential to fall in love with Charity! ; )

    Reading various blogs, glimpsing into others’ lives, has become part of my destress/transition from work to home routine. Actually it’s more of transition from work at school to work at home for school but whatever. And, I already knew that my (former) roomie’s brother was a cool guy. It’s just been interesting to read some of what you’re thinking and doing because it’s different from my day to day world. And different insight into you than I gleaned from knowing you as my roomie’s brother. šŸ™‚

    I’m researching differences between didactic and collaborative web interaction for…oh never mind. I’m procrastinating.

    I already knew you some, but I’m still reading to keep up with what’s going on with you. If anything, you come across as more “artsy” and thoughtful than I remember. But you were young then… Of course, we must consider the nature of blogs – we only get the glimpses of you that you pick and take time to refine. You also come across as focused on what you’re thinking and feeling about situations in your life; introspective. For this blog reader, that’s actually a nice break from the surface “Christmas Letter” style of many blogs and the complete focus on current news events in others.

    And yes, Andy does have personal friends who read his blog!

  13. I would like to keep the mystery in my visits.

  14. Drat! foiled again. You always were too smart for me. šŸ˜‰

    I knew Andy during his college days and reading this blog is a vain attempt to stay a part of Andy’s thoughts and experiences. I haven’t ever tried to separate the “blog” Andy from the real Andy, but many of the posts seem to be progressions of things that we would stay up late talking about in college.

    No real preference on tuxes, but I do look good in pastels. šŸ˜‰

  15. Jen…Sarajevo…with the fund-raising for my vehicle proving to be the most hopeless and dismal thing I have ever tried to accomplish, reading your blog cheers me up after I take a daily glance at my non-changing support account.

  17. Andy,
    So I know this is months after you posted this, and you probably don’t even remember me. I went to Grace Community Church when I was 9-14 years old (I’m 20 now). I came across your blog about a year ago when I found out that Robin had died and was searching for information on the web. I didn’t find out until after the funeral, otherwise I would have taken time off of school to fly down to NC, despite the fact that it was a week before finals, she meant that much to me, as I know she did to a lot of people.
    Anyway, today’s got me thinking about her again, for obvious reasons, given the date, so I just thought I’d pop in and say hi.
