I was going to blog...

... seeing as how I haven't really given you any updates on my own planning, or shared any of my inspiration, for a while now. And I was going to do it between 11 and 2, while waiting for my lost luggage to arrive. But voila, it's 11:40, my luggage came, and now I'm off to explore Brussels. Blogging (and reading all of the wedding-related blogs on my Google Reader) is going to have to wait.

Bon journee! (By the way, can I just mention how much I love being in a city that speaks French again? I understand and speak just enough to get by, which is perfect. Brussels doesn't have the main attractions the way Paris does, but it is so quintessentially European and I love it even though I've been here barely 24 hours!)

Wedding mishaps

My Google Reader is mostly filled with health and science news feeds and wedding blog feeds, as well as some personal blogs of people I know. Every now and then, I wonder, in the midst of reading an article, why I keep coming across so many articles I find particularly interesting, then realize that I have created a completely selective reading experience and brush off my "this is too coincidental" feeling.

But sometimes I come across wedding stories in unexpected places, like CNN and NY Times (Science section). Today I came across two.

A puking bride, crazy squirrel and a fire

Wedding crasher flew in, and the lawn wore white

I'll keep my fingers crossed that none of these things happens at my wedding.
