Yep, it’s been awhile. My new blog home takes all my time and energy. (And why aren’t you a member yet???)
But things have been happening in RL too. I got engaged last week – yippee!! :) Good stuff. We’re finally taking the M.A.S. public! (Who’s the b-school grad?) lol
I’ve been thinking about my own wedding for the last decade or so (not, as pop culture would insist, since I was a little girl, nor do I subscribe to the idea that it will be the best or most important day of my life [so far]…that will be my MIT graduation! Dr. Redstar…someday…). I have attended probably 30 weddings, and been in a slew of them as a bridesmaid or reader and even minister. (That was my personal best on the wedding circuit. They say that day was really about my friends who married, but I was like, whee! All these people are here to see me up on this altar! I do love the pulpit!) My mind wanders from the finer details of dresses and venues to the broader issues of feminism, materialism, and equality.
So I’m pleased to see these concurrent posts on weddings at Shakesville and Feministing, concerning LGBTQI inclusive weddings and feminist ceremonies. At least now you know what I’m thinking about, even if I’m not around these parts much anymore.
