Day 20: Wedding bells

Today was the live streaming of Mat and Julie's wedding. I started the day with a phone call from the Kid, telling me about her Zoom gathering last night. Apparently she had a very good time.

I decided to get up at that point, and had breakfast and coffee, and puttered online until it was time for the wedding. It was on facebook. They got married on the steps of the church, with the priest (I'm pretty sure he was a priest, not a minister. Not sure of the denomination though) keeping a good social distance from the couple (who live together so they didn't have to keep apart!) and the maid of honor, best man, and whoever was filming keeping distance from everyone. I had trouble hearing what was said, but the bride was beautiful, the groom dashing, and it was nice to have the chance to see it.

Afterward, I celebrated by making myself a rum and coke, the first time I've drunk in this time of isolation.

Then I Skyped the FWiB. We talked for about an hour. That was nice.

Then, my hunger having been raised by something we said, I went on a fruitless search for a place near by that would deliver pad Thai. So not finding anything, I decided to settle for Greek, and used Seamless for the first time ever, and ordered a gyro and a piece of baklava.

It was delivered right on time, but the guy didn't bring it into the building, he called from outside. So I grabbed my keys, put on shoes, and went out. What I didn't realize was that there was a sign on the outside of the door, that I didn't see until I had gone out and was coming back, that the door wasn't working. In the past when the electronic unlock thing wasn't working they had the door fastened open. Not this time.

So there I was wearing practically nothing with only my phone, keys and food. NOt knowing any of my neighbors well enough to call, I had to resort to ringing doorbells until someone answered on the intercom, tell them what happened, and have them let me in. Fortunately someone did.

Si I came in, washed up, and ate a very delicious gyro. I put the baklava aside for later and had another rum and coke. Then I went and lay down and dozed off.

At 7 I got up and came out to the living room and got into a Zoom conversation with one of the people on my Dreamwidth flist, Zhelana. There were four of us all together and it was a bit awkward, but we had a nice conversation going by the time Zoom kicked us off at around 7:40.

Which gave me enough time to get to Twitter to watch the Thurber read. That was fun as always. I followed it up by eating my baklava. A bit hard, but tasty.

Then I went and read until it was time to call Oldest Brother, and then feed the animals. And here i am.

Gratitude List:

1. The FWiB.

2. Being able to see the wedding.

3. Seamless.

4. On-line friends.

5. Thurber.

6. Good books.

  • A Zoomy Day!
