Long lost readers, I made it through the weekend!
I just woke up from a 2-ish hour nap after a long day of recovery (read: brunching, packing, trying to find my brother [who somehow ended up keyless at a train station in the next state over the morning after the wedding…], and riding back to PA from NYC. $100 to park for two days, that city is no joke.)
I’ll save the full write-up for another day, but in the meantime, in true Six Pack Sunday fashion, here are a few funny bits and pieces to tide you over (tie vs. tide? the link suggests I’m good with tide….)
Six Pack Sunday: My Cousin’s Wedding
1. Oh, do they?
Ok, maybe I was reading too much into this one. But doesn’t this just read almost like “They F**k You?”
Well, after a few hours in traffic, feeling a bit loopy, that’s how we all saw it. Hilarious, at the time. (Apparently, the translation of Daifuku is great luck. Now you know.)
2. A Dead Ringer… for Ringer!
The lovely Sarah Michelle Gellar was my inspiration for my wedding hairstyle, a la her new show, Ringer.
Ok, well I’m no Siobhan or Bridget, but I think I rocked it out. Pin straight, slicked back, feeling like a rockstar.
At 10:00 am the morning after the rehearsal dinner/party, my brother and I shocked everyone by heading to the hotel gym. Admittedly, it was a TINY room with a treadmill, an elliptical, and free weights + bench… but that was all we needed. GREAT to get a sweat session in while everyone else was nursing their hangovers.
4. Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey and… Drunky?
I loved the venue of the rehearsal dinner/party. It was held at the Open Door Gastropub in the Financial District of NYC and had an excellent beer selection!! One of my favorites, initially for the name, was La Chouffe, an unfiltered fruity blonde beer. The glass it was served in was for the McChouffe, which they didn’t have on draught, but it was too cute. Friendliest little beer dwarf of all time!!
5. Put a
Bird On Stick In It!
Skewers, kebobs, kabobs, shish kabobs, meat on a stick… call it what you want to call it, this station was one of the best parts of the reception. It was simple. Marinated steak/salmon/chicken/veggies, meet sticks. Sticks meet fire. Cooked food, meet my mouth.
6. The Girls with the Bro-staches
Fact: For the duration of a single song (I think it was Love Train), my cousin, Devon, and I wore mustaches. Then we removed them. They were like ghost mustaches… I bet folks wondered if it was just their imagination. Well, it wasn’t. It was real! It was ALL SO REAL!
What was the best/funniest part of your weekend?
