    death and cake
    I had a long and intense dream last night/this morning, that a friend died. It was the father of a family who we're relatively close to - he had a heart attack. It was shocking, and devastating. I was there with the wife from the moment she found out through an entire day. There were so many odd details in the dream. I cried a lot in the dream.

    We're supposed to get a storm tonight through tomorrow night. I am slightly fed up with my job, and so I'm hoping the girls don't have school. I will bring work home with me so if we're home, I can "work at home" tomorrow. I will be so sad if our storm flops.

    I'm going to visit my parents this weekend, and, as usual, there are things that we have to stress about and negotiate with my mother. As we previously agreed, we're going out to dinner on Saturday night to celebrate the fact that beloved and I are married now, and no longer spitting in god's face.

    The other night, my mother told me that they switched what restaurant we're going to, and she's very excited, because this new place has a "great gazebo out back for pictures." Pictures? What pictures? I told her we don't need to take pictures in a gazebo at 10 p.m. on a winter night. She said she wants to take pictures. Beloved was not happy.

    Then, as I was telling her of this next stage that E. and her friends are reaching, she interrupted me to ask me what kind of CAKE I want on Saturday. Cake? We're having cake? I told her, "we don't need cake" -- she said, "not need, want. What kind?"

    Basically, instead of going out to a nice dinner to celebrate that beloved and I got married - we're having a wedding reception. I suppose my biggest fear and concern is that she's inviting more people than we discussed. My sister, husband and I are set to refuse the picture taking idea. And come on - who doesn't like cake?

    As far as what kind of cake - I threw out a super easy and casual cake that we like, purposefully trying to have a casual dessert, and not a major party where people are telling me to feed Beloved cake and smear it all over his face. She was clearly disappointed by my choice, and instead offered a purchased cake from a bakery. But the kind she suggested is too rich, and I don't want a fancy-pants party.
